Take a high-resolution look at the portable, four-wheeled, remote-controlled ghost-sucking RTV from Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife has just rolled out an all-new, high-resolution look at the ghost-sucking RTV from the upcoming film.
Eager fans can now feast their eyes on the nimble ghostbusting gadget, as Afterlife director Jason Reitman recently tweeted the cover of Total Film magazine, which debuted the RTV in all its high-resolution glory. The RTV made its first appearance in the initial trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife where it was remote-controlled by McKenna Grace’s character Phoebe from the side gunner seat in the iconic Ecto-1. Although some detail is obscured by the lighting, a good look at the gadget’s external machinery and all-terrain tires is still offered.
Although there is no officially announced RTV toy as of yet, Ghostbusters fans wanting to get their hands on a set of wheels from the series should look no further than the new Ecto-1 playset. Releasing as part of Hasbro’s Plasma Series, the Ecto-1 will be styled after its upgraded appearance in Afterlife, coming complete with a swiveling gunner seat, stickers and room for the Plasma Series’s line of six-inch scale figures. Among the figures are the four original Ghostbusters along with Dana Barrett, Gozer, Louis Tully, Terror Dog as well as Afterlife characters Trevor, Podcast and Lucky.
The hi-res look at the RTV wasn’t the only Afterlife information the film’s director recently shared, as Reitman has also spoken to how Afterlife will expand on the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot. While not connected to the 2016 film, Reitman said that film proved “the idea that the Ghostbusters could be anyone,” a concept he is looking to explore in Afterlife through the lens of family. In effect, the director is hoping Afterlife‘s success will set the table for more Ghostbusters films from different directors, Reitman said during a panel at this year’s New York Comic Con.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife will mark the fourth movie in the Ghostbusters franchise when it hits theaters next month. Set years after the events of the original films, Afterlife follows a single mom named Callie (Carrie Coon) who moves into a small town with her son, Trevor (Finn Wolfhard), and daughter, Phoebe (McKenna Grace). But when the small family soon discovers a connection to the original Ghostbusters, paranormal activity takes over the small town as they work to unravel a secret legacy left behind by their grandfather, Dr. Egon Spengler (played in previous films by the late Harold Ramis).
Featuring appearances from Bill Murry, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver and new cast members Paul Rudd and Celeste O’Connor, Ghostbusters: Afterlife arrives in theaters Nov. 19.
