The Hollywood filmmaker, who has also directed Juno and Up In the Air, explained that this film would not be a reboot, but will next chapter in the original franchise," he shared in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. With the new trailer's arrival, he's made good on his promise. The latest film Ghostbusters: Afterlife stars Paul Rudd and Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things. The film will follow Finn and his sister Phoebe played by McKenna Grace as they adjust to their new lives in a small town after their forced to relocate due to their mom's financial issues. The pair soon learn that this town and the creepy farm house their grandfather left them is full of secrets. Paul plays Mr. Grooberson, a teacher, who soon finds that these two kids may be the key to helping save the town from, you guessed it, ghosts! "Somehow, a town that isn't anywhere near a tectonic plate, that has no fault lines, no fracking, no loud music even, is shaking on a daily basis," Paul's character explains in the trailer. The film takes place in the same world as the original 1984 Ghostbusters film and it's 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II, so there could be a few familiar faces popping up. One thing is for sure, you can expect to see the old Ghostbusters car back in action. In the trailer, the 1980's car has lost its pristine shape, but still works well enough for the kids to take on the ghosts when the time calls for it. "Call it fate, call it luck, call it karma," a voiceover says before the iconic car reveal. "I believe that everything happens for a reason."

There are the obvious standouts of the year, but many have expressed confusion about certain films that haven't even hit theaters yet but are in early talks to be nominated. The highly anticipated Cats remake, Bombshell, Little Women and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker have yet to be released in theaters, but the buzz for the films is off the charts. Don't worry, some of your soon-to-be favorites could still win awards come 2020.

Taylor Swift's Cat Impression Shows She Was Truly Purr-fect for Her Role in Cats. Taylor Swift showing off her best cat impression will not only make your weekend but also further solidified why she was truly purr-fect for her role in the upcoming Cats. On Sunday, Dec. 8, the UK's No. 1 hit music station Capital FM took to Twitter to share their interview with the pop superstar. During her appearance on the radio station, she not only talked about her music, her love for the holidays and her role in Cats -- but she also celebrated her 30th birthday a little early. Oh, and while she was at it, she gave us her best impression of a cat -- we'll just be watching it on repeat. "I filmed [Cats] last year, it was legitimately the best time of my life," Taylor said. "I'll never have as much fun as that again and I've come to terms with it. Everything's downhill after you know, going to work, putting on spandex leotard and going like [insert cat noise that Taylor made here]." She continued: "That was legitimately, you know, what we did." Taylor then goes on to show the host of the radio station (and the rest of us, honestly) how to channel our inner cat. The "You Need to Calm Down" singer then goes on to tell the host to cup on hand near their face and gently grace it over their cheek and go, "meow." ".@taylorswift13's cat impression is undefeated ??? not up for discussion. #CapitalJBB," the radio station wrote on Twitter. The songstress also recently opened up about whether she'd ever sidestep into acting after her role in the upcoming film, based on the 1981 musical and the 1939 poetry collection by T.S. Eliot. In an interview for her cover story on British Vogue, Taylor said: "I have no idea. When I was younger, I used to get questions like, 'Where do you see yourself in 10 years?' I'd try to answer. As I get older, I'm learning that wisdom is learning how dumb you are compared to how much you are going to know. I really had an amazing time with Cats. I think I loved the weirdness of it. I love how I felt I'd never get another opportunity to be like this in my life." Cats is set to premiere on Dec. 20. (Eonline)
