Sony Pictures and Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire reveal a new look at Bill Murray who returns as Peter Venkman and has released the first movie poster.
The image features Murray speaking with Paul Rudd’s Garry Grooberson who returns from Afterlife.
The latest issue of Empire Magazine has a featured article on the fourth film.
“Because the Spengler family story drove the narrative in Afterlife, bringing Gozer back to centre-stage was a natural way to close the book on the past,” explains director Kenan referencing the big bad from the original 1984 movie. “But we are now in the post-Gozerian era of the Ghostbusters saga, so that means we’re able to stretch out and create an entirely new mythology. And that’s thrilling as a storyteller, because there are all-new and terrifying stakes with fresh visual references to draw on.”
Kenan also reveals he loves be a part of the franchise.
“I remember there was a moment halfway through the first morning of directing one of the big scenes where I looked at the monitor, and just caught myself with the biggest grin ever,” says Kenan. “Finally, it dawned on me that I was calling ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ on some of my very favorite characters in movies, working on a big cinematic scale on something that I really cared about. I try to hold on to that feeling. I still have it now, finishing the film.”
The Empire Magzine issue also features new details and a new look at Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.
