Product Description

The new 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters digi-book well looks like a book, contains what and how Ghostbusters and its sequel came together, inserts, Ghostbusters™ 30th Anniversary Blu-ray, and for the first time in any century Ghostbusters II™ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray.

Ghost hand returns?

As their has never been a follow up book to Making Ghostbusters I can appreciate “The Story of Ghostbusters II” for the 25th Anniversary. With concept art, ghost model building, and pictures from Ghostbusters II™. Which weren’t all in the theatrical version.

This is the first and most likely the only time Ghostbusters II™ will see the Blu-ray of light. Where then is the respect? Why did someone in authority approve a sideways cut off from the disc Ghostbusters II “victory/peace” sequel logo? You could say the logo is correct when one turns the disc with the title facing to the right. If you’re anything like me, you place your discs in a player with the logo facing upwards depending on the placement of art and/or title.

Rich Reviews: Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Blu-ray

Ghosthead websites and movies sites began reviewing the 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters Blu-rays within days of the release. At Ghostbusters Incorporated we’re far more busier. Ya know making sure the world is safe from disruptive ghosts and on the rare occasion those creatures that want to end all life as we know it for their own selfish agenda.

Some of us didn’t have the time we would have liked to have watched, let alone review new Ghostbusters Blu-rays. Then before we knew it, GB Inc. seemed to have become a food site because of our partnerships with Krispy Kreme and the Stay-Puft Corp. Before we really get into the busy season GB Inc. asked me to watch movies (at least they weren’t workplace safety videos this time) and review them.

I’ll be reviewing the new Ghostbusters digi-book as its the 30th Anniversary edition I chose. The actual 25th Anniversary Ghostbusters II™ Blu-ray review will be a separate blog post.

Ghostbusters Anniversary Blu-Ray Trailer

Sony Pictures has created a brand new trailer for the upcoming new Ghostbusters/Ghostbusters II anniversary Blu-rays.

Available to purchase as individual releases, with Digibook, or a limited edition collector’s set on September 16, 2014 in the United States. It currently be pre-ordered from such sites as Amazon.

New Ghostbusters 4k Blus On Amazon Pre-Order

gblusdigipakgblu2single

When Sony announced a limited edition Blu-ray gift set we didn’t know yet if either or both movies would be released individually. From past product experience I figured their would be individual releases too. Naturally a gift set which contains new content, Ghostbusters II with features should for a little while take precedence.  Not every ghosthead wants or needs a collectible gift or a box set which retails for a cool Benjamin Franklin. For that kind of money we could buy other Ghostbusters merchandise.

Amazon.com (US) along with the Blu-ray gift set has listed three additional Ghostbusters Blu-ray products depending on your wants or needs.

  1. Ghostbusters 4k-Mastered
  2. Ghostbusters II 4k-Mastered
  3. Ghostbusters/Ghostbusters II 4-K Mastered “Digi Book”

Both Ghostbusters/II single releases can be pre-ordered at $13.99 USD each and the “digi book” can be pre-ordered for $18.99 over retail prices. These three releases will be available on September 16, 2014.

Sony Pictures announcing Ghostbusters will be re-released to theaters this August is big news. Merchandise aside, that could be enough. How does the studio behind Ghostbusters put the icing on the marshmallow? Announce something just as big that ghostheads have been pretty much been waiting for since 1999.
