No Weekend Plans? A Nostalgic Comedy and a Tennis Drama Drop this Friday!


SAN ANGELO, TX – Need plans for the weekend? Well if so, two huge blockbuster films will be premiering Friday.

The two big releases are Ghostbusters: Afterlife and King Richard.

GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE- rated PG-13 for "supernatural action and some suggestive references"

The official synopsis reads: 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.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is directed by Jason Reitman, the son of the director of the original Ghostbusters movies, and is written by the younger Reitman and Gil Kenan.

The cast is a good one with some heavy hitters.

Up and coming actors Finn Wolfhard, who broke out on Netflix’s Stranger Things and has a big role in the horror movie IT, plays Trevor Spengler, the older sibling who moved out to Oklahoma with his sister and mother.

Mckenna Grace plays Pheobe Spengler, the granddaughter of Egon Spengler and isn’t aware of her grandfather’s history. Egon Spengler was played by the late Harold Ramis. Carrie Coon plays Egon Spengler’s daughter who is down on her luck. She is forced to move to Oklahoma after her family got evicted. Coon has played in Gone Girl (2014) and HBO’s The Leftovers.

Ageless wonder Paul Rudd (Anchorman, Ant-Man) plays Chad Grooberson, a teacher at Trevor and Pheobe’s school. Bokeem Woodbine plays Sheriff Domingo, Celeste O’Conner plays Lucky Domingo, and Logan Kim plays Podcast.

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Sigourney Weaver are all returning and olaying Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddemore, and Dana Barrett from the original Ghostbusters movies.

KING RICHARD- rated PG-13 for “some violence, strong language, a sexual reference, and brief drug references”

The official synopsis reads: Based on the true story that will inspire the world, Warner Bros. Pictures’ King Richard follows the journey of Richard Williams, an undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, who will end up changing the sport of tennis forever. Driven by a clear vision of their future and using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons.

Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and written by Zach Baylin, King Richard stars Will Smith (Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness) as the titular character Richard Williams. Aunjanue Ellis (If Beale Street Could Talk) plays the girls mother Oracene Price. Saniyya Sidney (Hidden Figures, Fences) and Demi Singleton, who is relatively new to movies, play Venus and Serena respectively.
