Sony Pictures is celebrating the 30-year anniversary of Ghostbusters in grand style. The film will be re-released on August 29 in theaters and a special anniversary edition will hit Blu-Ray on September 16. Better practice up on all those timeless Ghostbusters quotes!
The original film has been restored and remastered in 4K and will land in over 700 locations over Labor Day weekend at the end of the summer.
“Ghostbusters is still one of our studio’s most beloved franchises -- I was lucky enough to work on the release of the film on its first run, so it’s a real thrill for me to see that it’s still connecting with audiences everywhere,” said Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures.
“On the big screen or in home entertainment, this is a great movie to experience again and again.”
Weeks after the big theatrical re-release fans will be able to own the Ghostbusters 30th anniversary edition on Blu-ray and the Ghostbusters II 25th anniversary edition. And they will be combined in a terrific looking two-disc anniversary edition that also includes a Blu-Ray digibook, a limited edition gift set that includes a collectible Slimer figurine.
Sony cautions that the anniversary editions will only be available for a short time.
The extras prove especially important to fans everywhere with the recent passing of Harold Ramis. Look for never-before-seen deleted scenes from Ghostbusters II and conversations with director Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd.
