Trailer drops are usually followed with a release of a new poster, and with Sony just giving us our first preview for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, we have a new poster for the film featuring the Ecto-1.

It’s a shot of the Ecto-1 driving through a field, and it looks like it’s going toward an ominous green light that was teased in the trailer. We don’t really know what it represents, but it’s likely it could be linked to the events of the original Ghostbusters which has now been called in-canon as the “Manhattan Crossrip of 1984.”
What I find curious about the show is that it’s taking place in a small town in Oklahoma this time as compared to the original film which took place in the city. It’s kind of the same thing that HBO’s Watchmen is doing, with the original taking place in New York, and the sequel now taking place in Oklahoma of all places.
Could it be a coincidence? I don’t know, but if you ask me, it looks like Afterlife is going to be building up to the kids kickstarting the Ghostbusters business again then moving it on to the city for the sequel. That’s just my guess at least.
In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, 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.
