Ghostbusters Will Return to Theaters This Labor Day
Who ya gonna call?
While Ghostbusters 3 continues to (supposedly) stall and sputter towards production behind the scenes, the original classic will be making a 30th Anniversary return to theaters this Labor Day.
Originally released in 1984, Ghostbusters follows a group of paranormal investigators who seek to expel ghosts, ghouls and other haunting phenomena using science and technology rather than exorcism. They go into business as, essentially, supernatural-exterminators in New York and find success and fame; but begin to suspect that a sharp spike in ghost activity is tied to an occult mystery and the return of an ancient evil god. Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, the late Harold Ramis and (real-life spiritual investigator) Dan Aykroyd starred.
The re-release will be tied mainly to 4K theaters, as part of a promotion for the upcoming Blu-ray release of the film and its sequel.
There's only one proper response to this.
Yup, I'm game. Hope one of my theaters 'round here can handle it.
FUCK. I want to see Ghost Busters in the cinema. England is crap >:(
The upcoming Blu-Ray release? I'm pretty sure I already own it. In fact, I'm looking at it on my shelf right now. Unless this is some kind of new special edition thing, then I don't know. Still, I'm excited to see it in theaters again.
While I love Ghostbusters and it'd be a blast to see it on the big screen, I could always just watch it on Netflix for free. Also, I doubt that a theater by me would be showing it.
On the one hand, I am totally down for that! On the other hand, I think that decades of being used to being able to banter with friends while the movie plays in the comfort of one's own living room (Because unless you're around 40+ you don't even remember this in the theaters) will have the entire theater MST3King their way through the entire showing.
