Sony Pictures has officially changed the release date for Jason Reitman’s highly-anticipated sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife, starring McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, and Paul Rudd. Originally slated for November 12 release, the horror comedy has been delayed by just one week, and is now scheduled to arrive in theaters on Friday, November 19, a date recently vacated by Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick.

Its current theatrical release date will now see Ghostbusters: Afterlife going up against Warner Bros. Pictures’ Will Smith-led drama biopic King Richard. Due to the the ongoing pandemic, this actually marks the fifth time that the upcoming film has been delayed.

In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, in hopes of starting a new life, a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town to move into a beaten-down farmhouse in Oklahoma that they’ve inherited from their grandfather. However, they soon discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.

A group of Emmy nominees will lead the film. Carrie Coon will play Callie, Mckenna Grace is playing Phoebe, Finn Wolfhard is Trevor, and Paul Rudd is going to be Mr. Grooberson. It will also feature the return of original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts as they reprise their iconic roles as Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddemore, Dana Barrett, and Janine Melnitz, respectively.
