After months of speculation, Sony has at last confirmed a June Blu-ray debut for the ’80s blockbuster Ghostbusters, according to High Def Digest. One of the most highly-requested titles in the studio’s vault since the launch of the Blu-ray format, Sony will release the comedy classic in a long-awaited 25th Anniversary Edition on June 16, day-and-date with a new DVD re-issue. Read on for full specs and details… June can;t come soon enough!
Newly-remastered, ‘Ghostbusters’ will be presented on a BD-50 dual-layer disc in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video. At press time, there are no confirmed audio formats, but we’ll keep you posted.
Features exclusive to the 25th Anniversary Blu-ray include the “Slimer Mode” picture-in-picture “Graphical Viewing Experience” which includes an examination of the spook-hunters’ firehouse headquarters, an in-depth exploration of the creatures in the Ghostbusters mythology, behind-the-scenes discussions of making the movie, and new cast, crew and special effects artists interviews. Also new is the featurette “Ecto-1: Resurrecting the Classic Car,” the “Ghostbusters Garage” still gallery and a collectible 32-page booklet.
Extras carried over from the previous DVD edition include audio commentary with Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis, and Joe Medjuck, a trio of featurettes (“1984 – The Making of Ghostbusters,” “Interviews with Cast and Crew,” “SFX Team”), deleted scenes and storyboard comparisons.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $38.95.
