The new Ghostbusters movie is finally here, making its Malaysian debut yesterday, 2 December.
Starring Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Mckenna Grace (The Handmaid’s Tale), and Paul Rudd (Ant Man), Ghostbusters: Afterlife is a spiritual successor to the 1984 original, but set in the present day.
There are many callbacks to previous films throughout the movie, so its sure to be a nostalgia trip for die-hard fans of the franchise.
In conjunction with the release, an iconic landmark in downtown Kuala Lumpur is also going full Ghostbusters.
“For the first time, Saloma Link has been chosen as the location to promote the film,” said Kampong Bharu Development Corporation in a statement.
“Now, Saloma Link is not just iconic for the new tourism, but a landmark location of lights in Malaysia and for the world.”
Made possible by a partnership between the government entity and Sony Pictures, the bridge’s usual red, blue, and yellow will be changed to the colours of the new film, reported Bernama.
The change is only temporary however, running from 7pm today, 3 December until midnight of 5 December.
If you’ve been putting off visiting the Saloma Link, this is a sign to get there ASAP, so you don’t miss out on catching this most unique of collaborations.
