Film Description

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Movie Poster

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.

Trivia #1 – The film was originally set for release on July 10, 2020 (as per the poster) but due to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting movie release dates, the film was moved to November 2021.

Trivia #2 – Finn Wolfhard assumed the ’80s-set Stranger Things (2016) in which his character, Mike Wheeler, dressed up as a Ghostbuster for Halloween in Stranger Things: Chapter Two: Trick or Treat, Freak (2017) would take him out of the running and thought that Jason Reitman would not look at his tape because he had already done it in Stranger Things(2016), but Wolfhard ended up getting cast to his surprise because Reitman identified with Wolfhard’s audition tape.

Trivia #3 – Bill Murray had been reluctant to reprise his role as Peter Venkman for decades (although he did return for the Ghostbusters video game in 2009). He said in an interview that he finally chose to return because “The script is good. It’s got lots of emotion in it. It’s got lots of family in it, with through lines that are really interesting. It’s gonna work.”.

Trivia #4 – A true sequel to the original Ghostbusters movies (Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II(1989)).

Trivia #5 – The first official teaser trailer was released on January 16th 2019, the day after the movie was announced. The trailer featured musical cues from Elmer Bernstein’s score, as well as the proton pack sound effects from the original films. The trailer shows the severely weathered Ecto-1 in storage as well as some mysterious (possibly ectoplasmic) slime on a fence.

Trivia #6 – Director Jason Reitman is the son of Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989) director Ivan Reitman.

Most Popular Poster Types

US Posters

11 x 14″ printed on heavy stock paper. Used as display in theatre lobbies. Originally made in sets of eight. Some sets have a title card, which contains credits and artwork, essentially a mini-poster. The remaining seven cards are coloured photographic credits and poster artwork showing different scenes from the movie.

14 x 22″ printed on heavy stock paper with the top 4-6 inches usually left blank for the local cinema owner to fill in the cinema and the date it was due to play. Largely discontinued during the 1970’s.

22 x 28″ printed on heavy stock paper. The image displayed is normally a smaller version of the main poster, although some do have different artworks and sometimes come in two versions.

14 x 36″ printed on heavy stock paper. Inserts usually have the same artwork as a one sheet. Popular with collectors since they are smaller and easier to frame. Normally come tri folded or rolled.

40 x 60″ printed on heavy stock paper. Rare since they were primarily used for major motion pictures only. Designed to be used outside the theatre, on an easel, normally at a drive-in movie theatre.

27 x 41″ printed on paper. This is the most common size of poster, intended to be displayed in a glass “marquee” case. It is the most sought after size by collectors. Since the 1980’s most posters are sent to the theatre rolled and maybe slightly smaller measuring 27″ by 40″ and with the advent of backlit light boxes a growing number of modern movie posters are available double-sided and the more traditional single-sided.

41 x 81″ printed on paper. These were printed on two or three separate sheets designed to overlap, few survive. Used for larger advertising spaces, normally posted on walls, perfect for huge movie theatres the drive-in, where people could see them from a distance. From the 1970’s on, three-sheets were sometimes printed in one piece and issued as “international” versions to be used abroad.


30 x 40″ Most common poster size used in the UK. British Quads are horizontal and may have different artwork to the US one sheet. Like a US one sheet they normally come in two versions. Like a US one sheet they are usually supplied single-sided or more commonly now as a double sided poster.

27 X 40″, printed on paper. Very rarely used size.


13 x 28″ six inches shorter than the US insert, very nice size to frame. Italian poster illustrators are some of the best in the industry.

18 x 26″ Glossy, high quality, used as lobby cards in Italy. Size may vary, either vertical or horizontal format. There are also double Photobusta or mini Photobusta.

(DUE): 39 x 55″ This is the standard poster size used in Italy. Italian poster illustrators are some of the best in the industry.

(QUATTRO) 55 x 79″ Very large Italian poster printed in two pieces, often contains very beautiful artwork.

FRENCH Posters

47 x 63″ (GRANDE) or 24 x 33″ (PETITE) French movie posters normally come with different artwork to either the US or the UK. Like the Italian’s some of the artwork is extrememly beautiful.
