Oh, you are so right. I'd kill for just a new still image at this point.

Maybe, but I think we all should be employing Occam's Razor: The simplest explanation is that the person reporting the leak has made it up.


Beyond that, I don't understand why folks are so keen to seek them out... The official leaks and teasers from the studio I get, as it offers a bit of a hint at what we're gonna see... But I don't understand why people are seeking out more substantial stuff that could spoil large chunks of the film, rather than let the stuff potentially being spoiled genuinely surprise them when they see the film next year.
Simple answer: were net nerds suffering from cabin fever during a pandemic. Were begging for dog treats to no avail. Our large puppy dog eyes apparently have no effect on Sony's tight leash.
That's "net cool guys", if you don't mind!

I was on the "that sounds pretty cool" bandwagon but now it all seems pretty fabricated. Things just don't make much sense in their story rundown.

I'm not believing anything until it's on this sites news feed, or it comes from Sony. We've been at the rumor bin since the nineties.

There is one part of that leak that I want to believe, because I just thought of a cool sequence for it:
(According to toyline,) the car of the sheriff becomes a ghost.

My bet is during the Muncher battle, the Sherrif is called to stop the kids from joyriding and destroying the neighborhood. Sherrif blocks the Ecto-1 with his car, steps out and talks to Phoebe. During this Muncher possesses his car and it takes off. Sherrif turns around andonly sees his car taking off. The kids follow and blow it up, either catch Muncher or let it escape. The Sheriff finally catches up and takes the Ecto-1 from them while bringing them all in for questioning.

By making it look like he is stopping them from destroying the town it also hides the fact the Sherrif might be possessed by / in cahoots with Shandor and wanting the Ecto-1 and it's equipment locked up in the Sherrif station.

In the trailer we see the Ecto-1 emerging from the Station, so this might be a good guess how that action will unfold as the kids break the car out.

I assumed the Sheriff would be the foil for the kids in this movie, similar to that of Peck and Hardmeyer. I would agree with your theory, however, given that Muncher eats metal (the stop sign photo shows a huge bite taken out of it) and the toys show the Ecto-1 plate inside Muncher, and the slime lab has the Ecto-1 plate contained inside a vial of slime, something tells me that Muncher doesn't possess a car, but rather he eats one. The Ecto-1 to be specific. I also think that the trick to defeating Gozer/Shandor this time is going to involve Muncher's proclivity for eating metal. The Shandor building was built out of magnesium and tungsten alloys and riveted girders with cores of pure selenium. It seems to me that in lieu of crossing the streams again (which is dangerous), a surprise twist would be releasing Muncher and have him swallow the supercharged metals, causing the portal to collapse on itself.

I don't think he eats the Ecto only because the car was present on stage while filming what most of us assume is the finale. From the Murray interview pic where the reporter is wearing the proton pack, you can see the Ecto on stage behind him. If the car makes it that far I doubt it gets eaten.

Maybe old Munchie just eats the license plate.

Would we want the car eaten anyway? Personally I’d be pretty unhappy if we lost an icon like that.

There was also a white wall tire in muncher on the packaging. But there were more vintage cars on the propriety so it need not come from ecto 1.

I'd wager it is the Ecto-1 that Muncher eats. The products seem to indicate as much. Pretty easy to imagine him eating the whole Ectomobile, burping when finished and spitting out the license plate in the process.

Really, though, the car is 61 years old. It would make sense if the studio wants to sunset it so the new crew has space to build their own. Not only would a younger crew want a car more modern to build upon -- it would save the studio the trouble of having to find another vintage car from the Kennedy Administration to turn in to a prop. I can't imagine there are a lot of '59 Miller Meteors or parts floating around.

Many parts are shared with the base model 59 Cadillac Eldorado. But those aren't exactly common either.

Perhaps he eats the other Ecto ;-)

I might agree, if not for the fact the production went to the effort to upgrade Wrecto-1 and Wrecto-1(A) with new engines, dramatically increasing their operational lifespan.
With the new engines, barring the failure of other parts of the physical structure of both cars, a 1959 Cadillac could be employed in a future hypothetical movie.

In that scenario it could either be a new car that's been converted in-universe, or the old one which survived the end of the film - As my pet theory is the Muncher doesn't eat the whole car, it just eats parts of it.

Hell perhaps Muncher eats the engine and they replace it with something more substantial.

I was contacted by Ghost Corps about the leak, and it was pretty much confirmed to me that it's untrue. I mentioned that I am still hopeful for II to be involved in the new movie and his response was, "We can’t wait to get the movie out there!". So I got that going for me.

Say what? What do you mean you were contacted by Ghost Corps about the leak? Like..they sent you an email? If so that’s pretty neat. But why would they do that?

Are you sure it isn’t just someone messing with you? I don’t doubt that the leaks are fugazi but I just find it odd a film company would contact a fan over this.

Are you able to share this correspondence with us?

What else did they say?

Just to play devils advocate here... even if they were true, I feel like they wouldn't respond with saying as much. I'm sure it's a general rule to dispel any spoilers, true or fake.

It's also something to think about why they would be so quick to get to the bottom of it if a screening or something didn't just happen recently, no?

That was about it. I mentioned that I was a VIP last year at fan fest and asked about the letter I sent to Ivan Reitman.

^Yeah, that's Eric Reich. One of the nicest, coolest guys working in Hollywood. If you think of Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd as the President and CEO of Ghost Corps, think of Eric as the COO who manages the day-to-day operations. I believe he started out as a college intern of Reitman then after he graduated college, Reitman hired him onto his Montecito company. And now one of the tasks he does is help manage Ghost Corps. I'm not sure if it's ever been documented what his or even Reitman and Aykroyd's official titles are at Ghost Corps.

A thought occurred to me today at work. Since the so called leaks don't talk about mini-pufts which marketing suggests play a big role in the film, I think it's safe to say they're false.
