Speculation that Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters 2020 would be receiving a different title has been confirmed along with the news regarding the first theatrical trailer for the upcoming revival film.
The British Board of Film Classification -- the British equivalent to the MPAA -- has rated the first trailer for the film as appropriate for audiences aged twelve and up, with a trailer runtime of two minutes and 28 seconds. While no release date for the trailer is listed, the classification confirms the film's official title as Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
A report last month from an Italian entertainment news site claimed that the film, labeled Ghostbusters 2020 throughout production, would actually be titled Ghostbusters: Afterlife. This report was not commented on by the filmmakers or Sony. However, the British trailer rating appears to corroborate the earlier report.
Principal photography wrapped this past October in Calgary, with the film reportedly taking place decades after the events of 1989's Ghostbusters II. While several prominent members of the original cast are poised to return, the sequel is expected to follow two siblings as they explore the Ghostbusters' legacy.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is directed by Jason Reitman, who also co-wrote the film with Gil Kenan. The film stars Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd and Mckenna Grace. The film is scheduled for release on July 10, 2020.
