  1. #1

    "Symmetrical book stacking!"

    In the trailer, Paul Rudd's character (Mr. Grooberson) describes that the town where they live experiences earthquakes on a daily basis. Then it shows Trevor's (Finn Wolfhard) family diving for cover during one of the earthquakes. Several towers of stacked books can be seen in the background. Fans may remember that the symmetrically-stacked books first appeared in the original film. Venkman, Ray, and Egon found a similar tower when they went to investigate a public library in New York.

    Spores, molds, and fungus

    Halfway through the trailer, Phoebe (played by McKenna Grace) explores an underground laboratory hidden beneath an old shed. She can then be seen sliding down a firehouse pole (another Easter egg from the original film). Once she's inside an unfamiliar part of the lab, the camera pans to a shot of some Petri dishes each with their own label. This is a reference to the 1984 film when ghostbusters receptionist Janine asked Egon Spengler about his hobbies. He responds by telling her that he collects spores, molds, and fungus.

    Shandor Mining Co.

    During the trailer, there's a shot of Phoebe (McKenna Grace) and her friend visiting a place called the Shandor Mining Co. Fans should be aware that the name Shandor is a reference to the original film as well as the 2009 Ghostbusters: The Video Game. It actually refers to Ivo Shandor, the leader of the Cult of Gozer. In the original film, he was the architect of the building at 550 Central Park West. That building happened to be the gateway for Gozer to enter the human world.

    "Ugly little spud"

    During the scene when the kids were driving down the street in the ECTO-1, they discovered that it had what they called a "gunner seat." They seemed to be in hot pursuit of an unknown element. As they charged with their proton packs blasting, an apparition suddenly appears mid-shot. Although it still can't be confirmed, it looked very similar to the ghost in the original film known as "Slimer." Venkman referred to the ghost as "an ugly little spud" in the original film, hence the title of this Easter egg.

    Is that a Terror Dog?

    Looks like fans are in for a treat 'cause it's possible that the villains of old are back once again. For a brief moment in the trailer, a glimpse of one recognizable creature from the original film can be seen. As Mr. Grooberson (Paul Rudd) enters his car and attempts to start his engine, he's caught by surprise by the sight of a giant-lizard like claw pressing on the hood of his car. This claw seems to belong to a "Terror Dog," a servant of Gozer and a harbinger of his return to the world of the living.
