‘Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire’ Trailer: The Ghostbusters Are Back To Save New York From The Cold Snap From Hell

Has anyone put together that the trouble always seems to follow the Ghostbusters around? Especially in New York? In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, a sequel to 2021’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the descendants of Egon Spengler have left their small town behind for New York City where, of course, supernatural danger threatens everyone and everything with the cold snap from Hell.

The film brings back the cast of the prior movie, Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace, Celeste O’Connor, and Logan Kim. Now that they’re official Ghostbusters, they’ll reunite the original crew Dan Akroyd, Bill Muray, Ernie Hudson, and even Annie Potts whose Janine Melnitz finally leaves the secretary desk to get in on the action. We even see hated sub-villain Walter Peck, played by William Atherton. And Slimer, too! New additions to the cast include Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt.

With Jason Reitman exiting as director, he passes the torch to co-writer Gil Kenan who directs his first movie since 2021’s A Boy Called Christmas.

Here’s the synopsis: In “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire,” the Spengler family returns to where it all started- the iconic New York City firehouse- to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes evil forces, Ghostbusters, new and old, must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire hits theaters on March 22nd.
