GHOSTBUSTERS 1984 TO BE RE-RELEASED 2014
Producer-director Ivan Reitman's mega box office hit from 1984, Ghostbusters, is being re-released to theatres this August 29th in celebration of its 30th anniversary. (I say: "ouch... that was thirty years ago?")
According to a bit I heard on the radio this evening the picture has gotten a digital upgrade (I say: "Oh my god! A 'digital upgrade'?! That's amazing!") and will be shown in around 800 theatres this summer.
This ghost of a movie-goer did not see Ghostbusters until about two years ago; courtesy of a friend's DVD. To be perfectly honest, the movie did not impress me. What does impress me, is the huge box office take; 300 million dollars in 1984 is like 800-900 million now... wow!
Good for Ivan Reitman. A good Canadian boy.
