Directed by Jason Reitman and produced by the director of the original movies, the long-awaited release of Ghostbusters: Afterlife is just around the corner!
This means that there’s no better time to immerse yourself in the film and to go behind the scenes of this upcoming family-friendly release. Acting as the sequel to Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989) – which were both directed by now-producer (and Jason’s father) Ivan Reitman – this next chapter in the Ghostbusters universe follows a single mother (Carrie Coon) and her two young kids (Finn Wolfhard & McKenna Grace) 30 years after the events of the 1989 Ghostbusters film.
After losing their home and falling on financial hardship, the young family is forced to relocate to a small town in Oklahoma and move into their late grandfather’s home. However, shortly after they settle in, a series of inexplicable events start occurring—allowing the family to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and unravel the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.

A first for director Jason Reitman
In an exclusive interview, Jason Reitman opened up to D-BOX about his experience directing Ghostbusters: Afterlife, his favourite scenes, as well as why he’s excited for the D-BOX Ghostbusters experience!
As he explains in the clip below, he’s very excited to see the magic of the cast and crew come further to life with D-BOX haptic feedback.
“Ghostbusters: Afterlife is obviously a very different kind of movie for me,” he explained. “It’s my first movie with a car chase and my first movie with a big action sequence at the end, so I’m thrilled and cannot wait to experience the D-BOX version of Ghostbusters: Afterlife myself!”
The ideal film for D-BOX
The D-BOX haptic experience connects moviegoers mind, body and soul to the movie being watched through a series of extremely precise and realistic movements, vibrations and textures, immersing them in the action on-screen like never before. The motion track for each movie is individually created by haptic designers who focus on the soundtrack of a film to decide how to move audiences, which is why Reitman believes that Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be an excellent film to see in D-BOX.
“It’s a film that has all this great heart-shaking technology at the center of it. It’s a maker movie,” explained Reitman. “It’s a movie with scientists who are building all kinds of equipment that fire and boom and rattle, so it’s just perfect for the D-BOX experience.”
A ghost chase for the ages
When it comes to the scene that Reitman is most excited for, it’s without a doubt his ghost chase.
“The ghost chase […] with Phoebe hanging outside the car, swinging around corners, the RTV chasing after the ghost… this was one of the primary reasons I wanted to make his movie,” he explained.
“I was so thrilled of the concept of doing a sequence like this, something that just reminded me of being in the DeLorean in Back to the Future, being on a speeder bike in Return of the Jedi. I always wanted to do a car chase and I think it will be a great D-BOX scene!” he exclaimed.
