LOGAN!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You’re a teenager now (you don’t act like it though😂)! You are one of the most fun people I know. I’m so glad I got to spend last summer with you and I can’t wait for all the fun times ahead! 👻 *Disclaimer* this was only on day 7 of filming Ghostbusters...you can imagine how crazy things got by day 60 😂
Much of the film was shot in Canada. The town of Fort Macleod played a large role with many of its landmarks appearing in the most recent trailer, available to view at the bottom of the article. A premiere in Fort Macleod may happen and would take place at the Empress movie theatre featured in the film during a newly minted and iconic ghost chase featured in Jason Reitman's latest trailer. In the scene the character of Trevor, portrayed by Finn Wolfhard, drives the Ecto-1 down the streets while sister Phoebe, portrayed by McKenna Grace, cleans up the town.
Details about the making of the film alongside exclusive behind the scenes photos from the set are documented in the Hanging With Bill Murray article from Vanity Fair. This includes the mobile neutronization of nasty neighborhood spirits featured in the trailer below.
A big thank you to GB Max from Ghostbusters Mania for posting this lovely birthday fan art for Logan Kim. After noticing the update from Ghostbusters Mania, which included the birthday present Logan Kim shared on his Instagram (below), I was reminded of the Ghostbusters: Answer the Call Blu-ray which includes several behind the scenes celebrations including Bill Murray's birthday celebration (above) with Ghostbusters: Answer the Call writer and director Paul Feig, as well as Executive Producer Ivan Reitman and crew.
Let us not forget the first documented Ghostbusters birthday scene included Ghostbusters: Afterlife director Jason Reitman himself as the kid interacting with Dr. Ray Stantz, portrayed by Ghostbusters co-creator Dan Aykroyd. Mr. Reitman's Instagram has been a good source of exclusive progress. He knows who you will be calling this Summer. It won't be He-Man.
