Sony Surprises At CinemaCon With Screening – Deadline


Here’s something no one saw coming at CinemaCon, unless you could decipher the three-hour block Sony reserved for their presentation: The studio surprised those who braved the Las Vegas confab tonight with a screening of Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife. 

The pic hits theaters on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. In the follow-up to the classic 1984 Bill Murray-Harold Ramis-Dan Aykroyd action comedy, 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.

Sony, which has sent a number of their movies to streamers during the pandemic, held onto this franchise jewel for a theatrical release.

Ivan Reitman, the first pic and 1989 sequel’s director, but is producing here, showed up with his son Jason Reitman who directed and wrote Afterlife.

It was said that talent wasn’t coming to CinemaCon, but here they are.

Jason Reitman praised Sony for being one of the few studios “devoted to theatrical distribution” to great cheers.

“Please keep the ending a secret,” added the younger Reitman to the Colosseum audience.

Why did Jason make the movie? “There was a story I needed to tell. I wanted to make a movie to my father, and for my daughter.”
