The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home (understandably) gained most of the attention following last night's CinemaCon presentation, but Sony Pictures had a lot of other fun stuff on display for attendees, including the global premiere of Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

The upcoming movie, which will serve as a direct sequel to the original Ghostbusters films, screened in its entirety for the first time, and social media reactions from those lucky enough to see it are now online.

Though specific plot details were kept to a minimum, most of the reactions were highly positive (no surprises there), with just a few mentions of some minor issues. There was a lot of praise for the cast (nothing about the returning spook-hunters, unfortunately) and director Jason Reitman, who has seemingly succeeded in reviving the franchise for a new generation while retaining the magic of the originals.

From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman, comes the next chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe. In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, when 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.

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts have all been confirmed to reprise their roles from the original movies, and they'll be joined by Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Carrie Coon (Fargo), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) and Mckenna Grace (Captain Marvel).

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is currently set to blast into theaters on November 11, 2021.
