Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a sequel to the original classic(s), was originally supposed to be released in theaters last summer, but we all know what happened there. At this moment in time, the film is set for theatrical release on November 11, 2021, so we’re not looking at “The Summer of Ghostbusters” but rather the “Holiday Season of Ghostbusters.”
And much like Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters: Answer the Call before it, we’ve learned today that the MPA has officially handed in a PG-13 rating for Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
The film is rated PG-13 for “supernatural action and suggestive material.”
For the same of comparison, both of the original Ghostbusters movies came to theaters with PG ratings attached (the PG-13 rating wasn’t created until 1984, we should note).
In the film, written by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan:
When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
Afterlife‘s cast includes Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd.
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts are all coming back for this sequel to the original classic, reprising their iconic and beloved roles.
