The idea of studios re-releasing major franchise films isn’t a new one, and while it comes off as a grab for another fistful of cash, it’s still awesome for the fans who weren’t lucky enough to see them upon initial release. While we were sitting in theaters experiencing both Ghost Busters and Jurassic Park, plenty of parents were popping out babies, all of which are now of the right age to experience both films for the first time.
According to Empire, Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking Jurassic Park is headed back into UK cinemas on September 23. Hopefully a US release soon follows in conjunction with the new Blu-ray set. Check out a trailer below.
Also, Digital Spy is reporting that Ghostbusters will return to cinemas next month as well. The ’80s spirit-hunting classic is to open in cinemas worldwide this Halloween as an all-new digitally-restored release. The fact they use the wording “cinemas” eludes to also another UK release. Lucky bastards! Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver starred in the sci-fi comedy, which was directed by Ivan Reitman. Ghostbusters grossed $290 million on its original theatrical release in 1984 and spawned a sequel in 1989.
