Bill Murray in Ghostbusters Sequel

For a long time, Bill Murray didn’t really want anything to do with Ghostbusters 3. However, director Paul Feig was fortunate enough to secure his involvement (along with most of the rest of the original cast) for a cameo in Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. And it sounds like if Jason Reitman wants Bill Murray to appear in the developing Ghostbusters sequel slated for 2020, all he has to do is ask. Read More »

Ghostbusters Video Game Remastered

Back in 2009, the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters was celebrated in a big way with the release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. At the time, the video game was a big deal because Atari was able to round up all of the original Ghostbusters cast members to reprise their roles. Basically, it was the only way we were getting a Ghostbusters 3.

Ultimately, the game wasn’t exactly a home run since the story was somewhat mediocre and the game’s ending didn’t really deliver anything all that thrilling. But for Ghostbusters fans, with all the wisecracking from almost all the movie’s original cast and the ability to become one of the Ghostbusters in a video game for the then-current generation of video games was still pretty cool. But now fans may have an opportunity to give it another chance since it would appear that a remastered re-release of the game is coming soon. Read More »

Ghostbusters 4K Blu-ray

It’s the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters, and fans have a lot to be excited for. Not only is the first ever Ghostbusters Fan Fest happening this year on the Sony Pictures studio lot, but production will commence on a Ghostbusters sequel that will be directed by Ivan Reitman‘s accomplished filmmaker son Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno). Now they have a new version of Ghostbusters to look forward to on home video. And don’t worry, this isn’t just an unnecessary double dip for the sake of the 35th anniversary.

The new Ghostbusters 4K Blu-ray release not only comes with the original two Ghostbuters movies in a steelbook case, but it also features some rare and never-before-seen deleted scenes, a commentary track for Ghostbusters II, and several other rarely included bonus features that haven’t been on the various recent home video releases on Blu-ray and DVD.

But the folks at IDW Publishing are celebrating by keeping their outstanding Ghostbusters comic book series going strong, and this time the team is heading to one of the most iconic places in mythology: the lost continent of Atlantis.
