It’s been two long years since Aykroyd and Murray’s Ectomobile tore through Wild Rose Country’s quietest towns and in that time, so much has changed. COVID came and went, then came back again with a vengeance, the seasons changed and so did the film’s original release date – but by gosh, it’s almost go-time! This November, the world will finally get to enjoy the highly anticipated, Alberta-shot Ghostbusters: Afterlife and its new trailer? Well, it has us on the edge of our seats waiting for opening day.

Though the movie itself looks like it’ll be funny, heartwarming, and action-packed, it was actually seeing one instantly recognizable location after another that really held our attention.

From Fort McLeod to Drumheller, every hill, valley, and building featured in the film looks flawless on screen, proving once and for all that with a little movie magic anything can look a million bucks.
