Ernie Hudson Hypes Up Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Original Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson hypes up Ghostbusters: Afterlife in new social media post. The veteran actor had just watched Ghostbusters: Afterlife with director Jason Reitman when he posted this.

“Yes, the smile in this picture is genuine. #Ghostbustersafterlife is so good, that I was speechless!”

Quite the praise and follows on from another veteran buster Bill Murray singing praises for the movie, even if not the lugging Proton Packs around again. It’s had to know what to expect from Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the way everyone is talking it’s like they’ve captured the magic of that original again. Thing is, I’m not even sure that’s possible anymore. I personally am not getting as hyped about Afterlife as some fans might. For a start it’s made by Sony, so that immediately sets off alarm bells in my head. Secondly, the early footage we saw with the kids feels extremely different form what I’d expect a Ghostbusters movie to feel like. Thirdly we have the recent mini-Pufts scene which again got fans debating.

I want to believe this is great, but I’ll have to see it for myself before I allow any hype to wash over me. At least I don’t have the script already, which I did for Ghostbusters (2016). That one I knew would be rotten just from that script and I was not wrong. There’s a hell of a lot going for Ghostbusters: Afterlife too. I think the young cast they have brought in are all good actors. We also know that Hudson, Murray and Ackroyd will return. There is also Paul Rudd, someone I am a fan of, and the movie gets positive points for me just by casting him.

However, I’ll be happy if Afterlife is just a decent movie on it’s own. I don’t need it to fulfill some legacy. I just don’t think this will be a classic in the ilk of Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters was just one of those movies that was flung together yet somehow worked. What about you, what do you think as Ernie Hudson hypes up Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Are you getting hyped or trying to lower expectations like me?
