Weird but awesome End theory from the beginning Ghostbusters The sequel gives a decidedly sinister connotation. On the occasion of the release of the new film of the franchise, in Italian cinemas from November 18, the site Comic Book Resources Flick an old hypothesis made by fans about the content of the 1984 prototype.
To be precise, the theory is that Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Winston Zidmore, and Egon Spengler died at the end of the first ghost hunters, due to cross streams to defeat the ultimate threat. Egon previously stated that such a thing would mean the end of life as we know it, and according to fans, it means that the four friends did not triumph over evil at the end of the first episode.

The film was originally supposed to release in the summer of 2020, but was postponed for a year and a half due to the health crisis that led to movie theaters closing for most of the past year.
