Ghostbusters Blu-ray & DVD extras revealed!

Sony has announced deets on the upcoming “Ghostbusters” (2016) Blu-ray release, which hits in October.

Before we get to the cover art (whatcha think?), let’s roll out the specs. In addition to 15 minutes of footage not seen in theaters, there’s 15 deleted, extended and alternate scenes, gag reels, filmmaker commentaries, plus more than 60 additional minutes of extended and alternate scenes available with Ultraviolet download. Five featurettes give fans an inside look at the supernatural visual effects, the “making-of” the ghosts from the film, an in-depth insight into the team’s look, attitude and weaponry, as well as the casting of Chris Hemsworth as the Ghostbusters’ new favorite receptionist. There’s also six Jokes-A-Plenty alternate take reels and get an inside peek at how the set was slimed including a recipe to make your own slime at home.

In addition to hours of special features, the Blu-ray release has been customized to give the ultimate in-home viewing experience. Using a dynamic frame break effect, you will see proton streams and ghosts leap off the screen! The 4K Ultra HD features four times the resolution of high definition, high dynamic range (HDR)–which produces brilliant highlights, vibrant colors and greater contrast on compatible displays. Plus, your home theater will be haunted by the stunning sound design with Dolby Atmos audio, remixed specifically for the home theater environment, delivering captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.

The franchise makes its long-awaited return with Director Paul Feig’s unique and hilarious take on the classic supernatural comedy, led by the freshest minds in comedy today, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth. Together they team up to save Manhattan from a sudden invasion of spirits, spooks and slime that engulfs the city.

Directed by Paul Feig and written by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig, “Ghostbusters : Answer the Call” is based on the 1984 Ivan Reitman film, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. It is produced by Ivan Reitman and Amy Pascal and executive produced by Paul Feig, Jessie Henderson, Dan Aykroyd, Tom Pollock, Joe Medjuck, Ali Bell, and Michele Imperato Stabile.
