Sony To Release "Ghostbusters" And "Ghostbusters 2" On 4K Ultra HD In June 2016!

The original Ghostbusters films - the first in 1984 and its sequel five years later - are getting a 4K Ultra HD disc release June 7 that will feature souped-up picture and sound for those with premium TV and home-theater systems, with anniversary Blu-ray discs included containing previously released bonus material, commentaries and interactive modes, reports USA Today!

Starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson as a bunch of paranormal investigators tasked with saving New York City from ectoplasmic ghouls, the two comedies were restored from their original 35mm negatives and the new technology allows for four times the resolution of a full-HD 1080p TV. They've also been remixed with Dolby Atmos audio for an immersive surround-sound home-theater experience.

The new editions are being released in conjunction with director Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters movie (in theaters July 15) starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Plus, old fans can also relive more nostalgia on July 7 when more than 50 episodes of the '80s The Real Ghostbusters animated series are released digitally and on DVD!

Two years after the all-female reboot of the beloved 1980s franchise arrived, original star Dan Aykroyd is now promising that a true Ghostbusters 3, starring the three surviving OG ‘busters, is on its way. Many thought the death of Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler, in 2014 had put paid to a proper reunion, but Aykroyd’s comments suggest that we can look forward to him teaming up with Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson in the near future.

While speaking on The Big Interview With Dan Rather, the man fans know as Dr. Ray Stantz, the heart of the Ghostbusters agreed with Rather’s wording that he was talking about making a “full-blown third Ghostbusters,” with an unknown writer already currently working on the script.
