The most talked-about movie of the summer, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, made $217.7 million worldwide on a $144 million budget. But it’s still on track to lose over $70 million, mostly in marketing (those Key Lime Slime Twinkies ain’t cheap). An expansion of the Ghostbusters universe (Ghostbusters fight ghosts… in space?!), including an animated movie and TV show, is still in the works, but plans for a sequel have been scrapped. There’s hope for more Kate McKinnon, though, if Ghostbusters is a huge home video success. Except, it’s not actually called Ghostbusters anymore. The film will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray as Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. That’s not quite going from Edge of Tomorrow to Live. Die. Repeat., but it’s still an unusual move.
Here are the details:
–Ghostbusters: Answer the Call Extended Edition & Theatrical Version
-4 Unearthed deleted scenes
-11 Totally Possessed Alternate Scenes and more than 60 minutes of additional extended and alternate scenes with Ultraviolet download
-6 Jokes-A-Plenty alternate take reels
-5 Supernatural Featurettes
-2 Hysterically Haunting Gag Reels
And a Slimer in a hot dog tree. Ghostbusters: Answer the Call — which is probably what it should have been called along; it’s easier than saying, “I’m not talking about the 1984 Ghostbusters, I mean the 2016 Ghostbusters” — will be released on Digital HD on September 27, and Blu-Ray and DVD on October 11. Just in time to show your children some spooky sexism for Halloween.
