Ghostbusters returning to theaters for Halloween

Finally, some real GHOSTBUSTERS news! For the first time in 25 years, GHOSTBUSTERS is returning to theaters this October with a digitally-remastered re-release of the comedy classic. The news was announced last night on the official GHOSTBUSTERS Facebook page but unfortunately we don't have much in the way of details.

What we do know is that the GHOSTBUSTERS re-release will be worldwide, at least that's according to a press release from the UK. The same release says the film will be released in an "all-new Digital Cinema Presentation" but what exactly that means, remains to be seen. And how and where the film will be released is unclear. Will it be like TOP GUN, which returned to select AMC Theaters for one night? Will it be a formal re-release like E.T. or something?

While this new print of GHOSTBUSTERS will feature a new digital polish, it's not the first time the film has returned to theaters. Just a little over a year after it was originally released in 1984, Columbia Pictures brought GHOSTBUSTERS back to theaters in August of 1985. It made only about $9 million that year but it was enough to put it past BEVERLY HILLS COP as the most successful comedy of the 1980s.

We've reached out to Sony Pictures to find out more details on the re-release and when we have more information, we'll pass it along here.
