Ghostbusters Blu-ray (Jun 16)
January 7th, 2009 1:55PM

"We got a live one!" The Ghostbusters make their Blur-ray debut June 16, as Sony unveils a 25th anniversary edition with three BD exclusive features, as well as a porting over of the bonus materials from their 2005 gift set release.

All-New Exclusive Special Features include...

* Slimer Mode: Picture-in-Picture Graphical Viewing Experience with 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, new interviews with cast, crew, and special effects artists interviews, and "much more." Note: That last tag means they're still working on adding stuff to the mix, or whatever else they plan to include isn't worth much at all.
* Featurette: Ecto-1: Resurrecting the Classic Car
* Ghostbusters Garage: Ecto-1 Gallery

Additional Previous Released Special Features include...
* Commentary with Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis, and Joe Medjuck
* The Making of Ghostbusters (1984)
* Interviews with Cast and Crew
* SFX Team - Includes Before and After Multi-Angle Explorations
* 10 Deleted Scenes
* Storyboard Comparisons

This release is timed to coincide with the premier of Atari's GHOSTBUSTERS video game, which was demo'd at the 2008 Comic Con. Honestly, it looked impressive, with a story by Ramis, Landis, and Aykroyd. Now, if they can actually get GHOSTBUSTERS 3 into production, that would be something worth shouting about.
