The much-anticipated film is a direct sequel to the classic 1984 original Ghostbusters and 1989’s Ghostbusters II.

In a new video, the new-and-improved Ecto-1 could be seen screeching down the street, showing off some excellent pick-up power as it zoomed through the town.

During another take of the scene, the driver made a dangerously fast right turn, which sent the car skidding, before it sped off down the street.

Filming began on July 12 in Calgary, Alberta and has moved to the surrounding areas like Drumheller, which is northeast of Calgary.

Crews are also also shooting in towns like Crossfield and Beiseker before wrapping in October.  

In fact, mechanics put the car together at Shorty’s garage in Crossfield.

According to TMZ, some farm structures, like a spooky-looking house and barn were built in one of the rural towns specifically for the movie.

The barn was even used to store the Ecto-1, as seen in the first teaser trailer, before it was revved up for its comeback.
