Who You Gonna Pre-order? Ghostbusters Coming in 3D, 4K and Extended!

The new Ghostbusters has caused a lot of debate amongst fans of the original. Why reboot with a different cast when we have been waiting for a third film with the old cast for over 25 years? That was the harmless beginning. When other controversial topics started to flood into the discussion, the movie became the perfect troll-bait. This derailed the whole thing to a degree that the movie started to steer towards trainwreck. Lines were drawn, standpoints defended and accusations generously dished out.

Meanwhile, the consensus amongst film critics was that it is a fairly decent comedy with solid performances and some nifty ideas. But that wasn't enough to lift the burden of preconceived opinions and some legitimate criticisms. In the end, the movie got a much harsher treatment than it deserved and if it had a different title, it would get much more recognition. Maybe with time, this one will be handled more gently. Just don't eat too many of those rememberries before watching!

The US version will be released on October 11th, the HK one on October 25th, both will include extras such as easter eggs, alternate takes, a gag reel and 4 deleted scenes. Which should be quite a bit as a lot has been improvised by the comedians/ actors. Furthermore, the 2D version will include the 17 minutes longer director's cut that will feature more story elements (yay!) and dancing scenes (yay?).

And if you still insist on the originals – why not get those in a sweet 4K remastered version, optionally in some of the best looking steelbook cover art ever?
