Doesn't look like it. I think Alpha's right and the car ahead of Wrecto-1 is a yellow taxi with an illuminated roof billboard.

I know this is probably the wrong thread to ask but I didn’t want to bother with created a new thread.

Does anyone have connections to the prop makers for Afterlife? In particular I notice that the Hero Packs were devoid of welding other than the HGA. The Ion Arm, Booster Tube, and N-Filter don’t have the welds that previous packs had and I’m very interested in knowing as I’m possibly going to build my pack based off it.

You can try and contact The Hand Prop Room. They were cited as the company that made the packs, this was on page 110 of Ghostbusters: Afterlife The Art and Making of the Movie.

There's also Ben Eadie to ask, too, as they had to make packs on the fly on the set during filming.

Here's how they could have made Ghostbusters the video game cannon with Ghostbusters afterlife: after the events of the video game Egon begin investigating Ivo Shandor was a state with the help of Alyssa to determine where Ivo Shandor manage God of all this selenium to build the Mandela as well as the extra dimensional antenna above a Dana Barrett's apartment, and that leads them to Summerville Oklahoma mining facility founded by Shandor cult.

This was his first attempt to build a gateway for Gozer the Gozarian and the prophecies of when he passed through was written by his cult at the time and that's why Egon went to investigate, but that's just me how I would have tied the story together.

What are you guys think of that theory now it's not as good as a theory relativity but it would make a better story but outside of that I love Ghostbusters out of life in a tribute to the late Harold Ramis was actually fantastic I got a little choked up when I saw it too 🥺😭

I feel adding more backstory about (obscure? a lot of people don't know the details of the game) previous events would bog down the movie with more things it has to explain. GB II events are hardly mentioned or shown already because it would slow down and fill the movie with unnecessary backstory.
More time spend on information about the videogame would sacrifice bits of the actual new story Afterlife wants to tell, which we know is already missing bits and pieces.
For instance we know Callie got less screen time and her backstory was partly removed, Janine had less to do in the final product when it's hinted she visited the OGB before the final showdown and I feel we are missing a big part with Lucky and Trevor as well.

I'm guessing it comes with popcorn.
Maybe, or another Talking Head. I can't remember.

Safe to say there's a load being intentionally held back to keep them in Blu Ray/VR/mind implants for the next 40-50 years :)

As you brought it up in the Home Entertainment thread, it's a new 15 min. special feature roughly translated to "Parent-Child Bond: Jason and Ivan – The Ties That Bind: A Conversation with Jason & Ivan Reitman." Then one of the Japan releases, the steelbook with the Ecto-1 cover, also has a Return of the Terror Dog featurette.

God dammit; I bought the other steel book because the car one looked too similar to the Zavvi variant

The Japanese version turned up today using the non-zavvi cover and I can confirm it also includes the Reitmans and Terror Dog extras

Thanks for noting that. Huhn. Wonder what the difference is then other than the steelbook design then.

Just checked the content vs the UK Zavvi release.

Japanese Afterlife plays with English audio and Japanese subtitles by default. Subtitles can be switched off, or set to English. Japanese audio is also available. (Audio and subtitles are the 2nd menu item). Menu texts are in Japanese, but otherwise functionally the same, and with the same 8 extras as the English discs.

Inner steelbook design shows GB logo bursting out of a wall surrounded by Pufts. Other side shows pufts stacked.

Otherwise basically the same as the Steel/Plastic Afterlife, other than the inclusion of the Amazon extra disc with the 2 extras. The extras disc also includes a number of trailers presented end-to-end as one video.
