Exclamation Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Collection/Theatrical re-release!!!

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/06/0...ers-rerelease/

"This weekend marks the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, which came, saw, and kicked Mr. Stay Puft’s ass in the summer of 1984. The hilarious, special-effects-laden adventure about Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and the late Harold Ramis’ trio of disgraced academics, who luck into the paranormal extermination racket just as supernatural creatures try to bring about the end of times, dominated the box office and had virtually every American humming Ray Parker Jr.’s theme song and asking the rhetorical question, “Who you gonna call?”

Well, the answer is still loud and clear, and a restored and remastered Ghostbusters will return to more than 700 movie theaters on Aug. 29. The theatrical re-release is the centerpiece of a Ghostbusters‘ anniversary celebration that will also include special events, collectible merchandise, and a new home-entertainment release. The Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray, as well as the Ghostbusters II 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray will be available on Sept. 16. It’s the first time the 1989 sequel has been released on Blu-ray, and special features include new conversations with director Ivan Reitman and Aykroyd, as well as deleted scenes from the sequel. “Ghostbusters is still one of our studio’s most beloved franchises,” said Rory Bruer, Sony’s president of worldwide distribution. “I was lucky enough to work on the release of the film on its first run, so it’s a real thrill for me to see that it’s still connecting with audiences everywhere. On the big screen or in home entertainment, this is a great movie to experience again and again.”"

Great news about the sequel finally coming to Blu-ray.

As long as the new Blu-ray of the first film is sourced from the 4K master they did last year, that's good news too. If they did yet another new master of it, that could prove interesting.

I held off on the Ghostbusters Blu-ray(s) waiting for the day both would be available, especially since Ghostbusters II is my personal favourite. Awesome news!

Yes. I am very curious as to what "The new transfer of Ghostbusters..." actually means.

I see. What is your take on that transfer? I only own the first blu-ray.

Yeah the 4K release is way better. The colours and brightness are how they should have been on the first release.
