David Harbour and Anthony Mackie star in the official trailer for We Have a Ghost. The spooky Netflix original film comes from Christopher Landon, the director of Freaky, and is based on the short story "Ernest" by Geoff Manaugh. We Have a Ghost finds Marvel's new Captain America moving his family into an old, rundown house that just happens to be haunted by a ghost named Ernest, played by the Stranger Things star. Everyone at Jahi Winston's high school is already aware of the house being haunted, but when the family actually meets Ernest, they learn he's a friendly ghost.
The family then starts making money from living in the haunted house, creating viral videos, and landing interviews. However, things take a turn for the worst when the CIA enters and wants to capture Ernest. The gang also takes an adventure outside the house to get to the bottom of what really happened to Ernest years ago that caused him to die and haunt the house. The We Have a Ghost trailer portrays the movie as a fun and lighthearted affair, and David Harbour shines as the unspeaking, good-natured Ernest. Also starring in We Have a Ghost is White Lotus star Jennifer Coolidge.
