EMPIRE magazine has launched its first ever glow-in-the-dark covers to celebrate the release of Sony’s Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire. In an all new and exclusive shoot, lead cast members from the original films and 2021 sequel Afterlife grace the March cover.
There are two different covers available – one features original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts whilst the other features Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, and Finn Wolfhard. Various ghosts including Slimer, the Hell’s Kitchen Sewer Dragon and multiple Mini-Pufts are also seen across both. Special glow-in-the-dark ink adds an extra element to this celebration of one of Hollywood’s biggest franchises.
Nick de Semlyen, Editor, Empire, said: “There could be no better way to kick off 2024 than with this spectral spectacular, a world-first look inside Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire. The upcoming blockbuster will see the original Ghostbusters crew (including Bill Murray’s iconic Peter Venkman) team up with a new generation of ghoul-catchers.
“And so, for our split covers we dreamed up an image of them all together, surrounded by marauding phantoms. Joyously, the sketch we drew became a reality, with the cast being photographed in costume (in Wokingham, no less) and ghosts added by the film’s VFX team. With a glow-in-the-dark treatment giving it extra flash, we are thrilled to be blazing a trail for one of the year’s most anticipated movies. As Venkman might say, ‘Heat ’em up!’”
