‘Ghostbusters’ theatrical re-release set for August: report
Question of the Day
In news sure to delight fans of the late Harold Ramis, the 1984 comedic classic “Ghostbusters” will be returning to theaters in August in celebration of the film’s 30th anniversary, reports Entertainment Weekly.
Thirty years ago this week, the film first hit theaters featuring three mostly-well intentioned paranormal scientists — played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and the late Ramis — bent on ridding New York City of it’s ghouls and ghosts, to hilarious and sometimes spooky effect.
The movie is set to open in 700 theaters nationwide on Aug. 29, according to Entertainment Weekly. But, that’s not all — Sony will also be releasing a “Ghostbusters” special 30th anniversary edition Blu-ray, and a “Ghostbusters II” 25th anniversary edition Blu-ray. The company also promises an array of collectable merchandise will accompany the film’s theatrical re-release.
“‘Ghostbusters’ is still one of our studio’s most beloved franchises,” Rory Bruer, Sony’s president of worldwide distribution, told Entertainment Weekly. “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.”
