Ghostbusters Reshoots

It’s been almost a year since the Ghostbusters reboot hit theaters, and even though it garnered solid reviews (landing a 73% at Rotten Tomatoes and a little less impressive score of 60 at Metacritic), it only pulled in $229 million on a budget of $144  million, making it far from a big enough hit to warrant a sequel.

Since the movie’s release, there has been plenty of discussion about where the movie went wrong, but now Ghostbusters franchise creator, writer, producer and star Dan Ayrkoyd has spoken out about where he thinks the reboot (which he also produced) had problems. While speaking on the British morning show Sunday Brunch, Dan Aykroyd reiterated that he was happy with how the movie turned out, but placed blame for troubles behind the scenes, especially costly reshoots, on the shoulders of director Paul Feig.

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

Even though we’ve heard that a Ghostbusters sequel is unlikely after the box office numbers were analyzed a little more closely, there’s a chance the home video release could help convince Sony Pictures otherwise.

The film has officially been given the title of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, which appeared at the end of some of the trailers and the movie once it hit theaters, as you can see in the cover art. You can check that out after the jump along with the list of special features and the release date for the Ghostbusters extended cut on Digital HD as well as Blu-ray and DVD. Read More »
