June 16th Will Be One Great Day

The Digital Bits has secured some information that should interest many people. According to them, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that Ghostbuers will be released on Blu-Ray on June 16th, 2009. It is also the new street date for Ghostbusters: The Video Game as well. This year is the 25th anniversary of the original films release.

From Bill Hunt, The Digital Bits:
Okay... speaking of title announcements, here's an official one hot off the wires: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will indeed be releasing Ghostbusters on Blu-ray Disc on 6/16, in celebration of the film's 25th anniversary and timed to coincide with the release of Atari's Ghostbusters: The Video Game the same day. The Blu-ray (SLP $38.96) will include most (if not all) of the previous DVD extras, including audio commentary with Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis and Joe Medjuck, 10 deleted scenes, storyboard comparisons and 3 featurettes (The Making of Ghostbusters, Interviews with Cast and Crew and SFX Team with before and after multi-angle explorations). New features for the Blu-ray include a Slimer Mode picture-in-picture viewing option (featuring an examination of the spook-hunters' firehouse headquarters, an in-depth exploration of the creatures in the Ghostbusters mythology, behind-the-scenes discussions of making the movie, new cast, crew and special effects artists interviews and much more), the Ecto-1: Resurrecting the Classic Car featurette, a Ghostbusters Garage: Ecto-1 Gallery and a 32-page scrapbook. The title will also include BD-Live connectivity, offering additional features (TBA). FYI, there's no official word yet on Ghostbusters 2, but we'll check on it.
Sounds good to me! Right around that time Kelly and I will be getting a house. I may not have Blu-Ray and HD right away but, hopefully, by this time next year we will. I already have one Blu-Ray movie (thank you, "free" gifts from Sports Illustrated's Phillies World Series Champions offer). GB in HD will be S.I.C.K.
