'Ghostbusters' back in theaters for Halloween


Image Credit: Everett Collection

Ghostbusters, the 1984 blockbuster that pitted Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson against a parade of paranormals, is coming back to theaters for a special limited engagement this October. Beginning on Thursday, Oct. 13 — and continuing on the next two Thursdays before Halloween — Ghostbusters will play one showtime each day in approximately 500 theaters across the U.S. “We’re delighted to be bringing Ghostbusters back to the big screen — this is a special celebration of the movie, giving the fans a chance to see it on the big screen in perfect digital presentation,” said Rory Bruer, president, worldwide distribution for Sony Pictures. “As we head towards Halloween, we ain’t afraid of no ghosts, but just the same, we’re glad that everyone’s favorite paranormal eliminators are on the case.”

    Shameless money grab to fund the 3rd installment…?

    signs point to “yes”

    I wish Dan Aykroyd would do more movies. We see too little of him. I hope Dan Aykroyd does more major films from now on, tries to reach his full potential as an actor and tries to win an Oscar. He is still sadly underrated and underappreciated even after all these years. He should have joined the A-list years ago.

    • grrr

      Get. A. Life.

    • Rob Grizzly

      Like when he was the ONE guy who knew the Japanese would attack Pearl Harbor? Best Supporting Actor right there!

  • Garsik

    Those three guys and woman that Dan Aykroyd mentioned will be in the sequel as the new generation of Ghostbusters better be hip, young, rising stars like Shia LaBeouf, Anton Yelchin or from the cast of Gossip Girl or One Tree Hill.

    • Carrie

      Shia LaBarf better stay faaaaar away from Ghostbusters!!!

    • Brett

      Nooooo, we want TALENTED ACTORS instead.

      • erin

        Garsik is a troll. It’s always posting the same dreck on Coming Soon too.

  • leon

    America loves crap.

    • fred

      damn spammers

    • LOL

      America will love it if I find something else to do.

    • Carrie

      True, America frequently does love crap. However, sometimes it loves things that are awesome, such as “Ghostbusters.”

    • Jerry

      Like Obama!

      • Brett

        Obama doesn’t love crap.

  • mooselicker

    Aren’t most of the actors dead from that movie?

    Seems like a half-hearted “re-release” if you ask me.
    They should have probably retrofitted it in 3-D and went balls-to-the-wall 3,000+ screens for a 2 week “limited engagement” like “Lion King.”
    I wouldn’t have never paid to see it again (certainly not in, ugh, 3-D), but I bet some gullible souls would have.

  • amy

    oops; should’ve read:

    “I would have never paid to see it again….”
    sorry, Mrs. Wolford!!!

  • Karate Pants

    Re-releasing it rated what? I hardly think getting orally serviced by a ghost and a bucketful of expletives will pass under today’s PG guidelines.

  • tvgirl48

    I don’t care if it’s a shameless money grab or whatever, I would love it if more theaters reran classic movies. I would jump at the chance to see my favorite older movies on the big screen (as long as they don’t try to destroy them with 3D). It would be a great way to celebrate Halloween if I could go see, say The Shining, at a theater with a group of friends.

  • Penny

    I love Ghostbusters. I never got the chance to see it on the big screen so I will be there.
