Discuss the upcoming movie to be released in 2020 and directed by Jason Reitman.

Yeah I'm not nearly as excited as I was before, but once the marketing machine kicks in...oh baby!

Also it's hard to be too excited when the release date is still REALLY iffy.

"...and with it established not only the new group of central protagonists that the story will follow, but also the mystery at the center of the plot, and how everything will link back to the events featured in both GHOSTBUSTERS and GHOSTBUSTERS II."
That wasn't "revealed by AMC" at all. It was even said in the very first Variety article:
"...this film will be a continuation of the 1984 sequel and will not be connected to the 2016 film."

At no point did anyone say Ghostbusters 2 was being discarded. I think it stems from people seeing the Ecto 1 instead of the 1A and jumping to conclusions for absolutely no reason at all.
Yeah, I'm going to have to disagree with you.

Yes, yes, we already know that GBII is part of the movie canon, but the AMC page implies that there's some connection to the major events of all three movies that we don't know about yet.

You're reading too much into that. Sorry you can't see that.

It's not breaking news that Afterlife ties into GB 1 & 2. Bizarre.

Why do you think it is?

So, um, tell us again how the events of all three movies are related? :D
How could I? Haven't seen the movie.

Its a little muddy for me Pizza, but are you saying Vigo or some form of will be in Afterlife or like the game where Shandor and Gozer influenced Vigo?
I'm not understanding what your suggesting.
Sorry mate.

From the AMC website:

"...and with it established not only the new group of central protagonists that the story will follow, but also the mystery at the center of the plot, and how everything will link back to the events featured in both GHOSTBUSTERS and GHOSTBUSTERS II."

So really, Hairy Biker, it could be something exactly like you mentioned, I'm not sure. This whole time all I've been saying is that it appears from that website there's something special in this movie that will tie all-three together, or give us more insight into why/how these events happen. That's all. I'm *pretty* sure we already knew that it was following GBII, as Derek was so kind to remind of us.

Yes AMC confirming what everyone knew from the start and what various day 1 articles said. It's a sequel to both GB movies.

My thought is that by "events featured" it means there's some connection that could be like Shandor controlling Vigo/the slime (as Hairy Biker mentioned) or something even deeper about the Afterlife itself.

Yeah that's no revelation at all. AMC didn't tell us anything new.

Yeah, it's basically just confirming it will be a sequel to the older movies. Not sure why that also means Vigo plays a part in it, unless it becomes a blatant copy of what the Videogame already did.

At the very least, both outcomes are possible, but I feel it's way more likely that's the text is meant to imply it will be a sequel. GB2 is also a sequel and Gozer doesn't play a part in it, which is also why GBA doesn't automatically mean Vigo will play a part of it. (We have many nods to Shandor and Gozer though).
Not sure why it's needed to basically call someone an Edge Lord over a simple dispute, though.

Another cool interview with Ernie promoting Redemption day.

Afterlife tidbit: “winston will be a complete character in the new film” (Referring/comparing to character arc and development from an earlier bit. )

Take that for what its worth, if winston gets some backstory and development i think all is well in the “will it just be a quick cameo???” Fear dept.

It really looks like Muncher is a corrupted version of Slimer.

They are diving into what looks like a pool made of marshmallow filled with blue slime.
My guess is this corrupts anything that eats it.
