The Original GhostBusters and Ghost Busters II now available on 4K UHD HDR Blu-ray
Stephan Jukic – June 17, 2016
Now that several major movie studios are releasing 4K UHD Blu-ray disc content at a regular pace, fans of top-notch home theater content have plenty to keep their evenings busy with. This applies especially to 4K TV owners without the benefit of ultra-high speed internet beyond the 25Mbps minimum needed for streaming content in 4K.
Best of all, while many new release 4K Blu-ray titles consist of the latest and most popular recent theatrical movies, a number of classic older movie titles are also being salted in among the Marvel Comics superhero movies and “Star Trek” franchise titles.
The latest example of classic movie glory to hit 4K Blu-ray is now Ghostbusters and its sequel Ghostbusters II. And, yes, we’re talking here about the original 1984 Ghostbusters, with Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and all the memories many of us have from our youthful days for these icons of pop culture, but now available with a picture quality that’s simply stunning.
With remastering of their original film reel content into 4K ultra HD glory at 3840 x 2160 pixels and with the added benefit of Dolby Atmos sound and full high dynamic range, the new releases of these classic horror comedy titles are so sweet that you’ll almost think slimmer will literally leap through the screen into your living room and kitchen.
The two new 4K discs for the Ghostbusters movies include audio commentary from production and actors along with a standard HD Blu-ray copy of each movie coming with its 4K Blu-ray version. The new movie releases also include extra audio, deleted scenes, some music videos from classic MTV renditions of famous Ghostbusters- related songs and Q&A with some of the actors. In basic terms, these new 4K BD disc releases should be the ultimate treat for serious nostalgic fans of the franchise, especially if they own a 4K TV with HDR capacity.
The 4K Blu-ray version of each movie is selling already on Amazon.com for $22.96. Not a bad price considering the revamp these titles have been put through.
