It has been 30 years since Ghostbusters hit the movie screens and to celebrate, the marketing team at Sony has big party plans. The festivities began a little early on August 20th as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man made a visit to NBC’s Today show to honor Al Roker’s 60th birthday. (How the two connect is a mystery), but the biggest news is that a restored and remastered version of the original 1984 film will return to theaters this Labor Day weekend in over 700 locations in the United States and Canada for a limited engagement starting August 29. Other marketing…er…party plans include:

  • A bunch of new merchandise from Sony Pictures Consumer Products will be released including products from Lego, Mattel, Funko, Mad Engine and others.
  • Sony Pictures Consumer Products has partnered with Gallery 1988 to create a once-in a lifetime experience, displaying original paintings, limited edition prints, and sculptures inspired by the film.
  • Legacy Recordings / Sony Music Entertainment will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic Ghostbusters soundtrack with multiple collectible vinyl LP releases this year.
  • Finally, on September 16 the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Edition and the Ghostbusters II 25th Anniversary Editions will be released on Blu-ray. The releases will also be available in a two-disc anniversary edition Blu-ray™ Digibook including both films, as well as a limited edition gift set that includes an exclusive collectible Slimer figurine and the two-disc Digibook.

Directed and produced by Ivan Reitman (Meatballs, Stripes), with the screenplay written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, Ghostbusters is listed as No. 28 on the AFI’s List of America’s Funniest Movies. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Sigourney Weaver star, along with Harold Ramis and Rick Moranis. Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts also star in the films.
