Who Ya Gonna Call? 'Ghostbusters' Returning to Theaters in August
With all the Ghostbusters 30th anniversary love that's been going around, from Gallery 1988's traveling artshow to the LEGO Ecto-1 (on sale now), we've been waiting for some kind of return to theaters, and the time has come. Entertainment Weekly has announced that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson will return to the big screen with a theatrical re-release of Ghostbusters in over 700 theaters on August 29th. They also say there's more special events and collectible merchandise on the way, not to mention an all-new Blu-Ray collector's set of both films, since it's Ghostbusters II's 25th anniversary too.
Here's the new Blu-Ray set for Ghostbusters coming September 16th, mastered in 4K (via EW):
This actually marks the first time Ghostbusters II has been released on Blu-Ray, and while it doesn't quite shake a stick to the original film, it's still a fun sequel that true fans still enjoy. And hey, that little statue thing is certainly something. At the very least, this new Blu-Ray will look infinitely better than the previous terrible transfer of the original Ghostbusters. Either way, we just can't wait to see this flick in theaters again. Some people might even see it for the first time! Be sure to check out the fancy new website for Ghostbusters, and stay tuned for anymore cool stuff in the works to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary.

I like Ghostbuster 2 a lot. I like it about as much as the first really.

If the Studios were smart they would rerelease every movie alongside it's shitty remake in theaters.
