Is this for real?
Yeah the double movie logo is a bit funky, but the article mentions deleted scenes for GB II!

This is excellent news!!

I missed the chance to see it in theatre as a child, so I am hoping I will be able to catch it now :)
And the blu ray is amazing also!

Too bad they couldn't redo it in 3D like they did to Top Gun

That is the news I'm most excited for. I'll be at my local theater in full uniform, along with some fellow Portland Ghostbusters, I'm sure!

Just hope it's a real 35mm film print and not a crappy 4K video projection.

It isn't cost effective to produce 700+ 35mm transfers for a 1 week release. So it will likely be 4K.

So does this mean we'll finally see the scene that was supposed to be after they see Vigo's painting for the first time and Ray ends up possessed driving around New York like a maniac?

Man, I'm pumped! :cool:

I have a digital copy of GB2 in HD from when it was aired on HDNET, but it'll be great to finally see those deleted scenes! The new interviews should be exciting, and both flicks are in 4K, so that's awesome too!! :D

I just wish I didn't JUST buy the 4K Blu-Ray of GB1 last month now, I had a feeling something like this would happen what with the 30/25 anniversary. Ahh, the pressure of getting new home theater gear and wanting to watch something cool on it. :whatever:

Darn those economic realities! Oh well... I will still go and have fun. On the bright side, it's still higher quality than you can get at home.

It's about damn time! Haha! Stoked that Sony stepped up and are including some deleted scenes. I really hope that they include the deleted scenes that we want to see and not just alternate takes or extended scenes. I really wish they would include the Fort Detmerring and Louis vs. the gang bangers scenes to the Ghostbusters blu-ray. I'd love to see those but i'm not holding my breath. If this set didn't include GBII, I wouldn't double dip unless they found some magical way to make it look better than the 4K. Overall, i'm glad that it's finally getting a blu-ray release.

Not that I'm complaining, but I gotta say, Troy's wish list was a little cooler.

I really wish we would have had more from the first film, especially considering the scanned HD raw footage that leaked. Give us Fort Detmerring! Aykroyd's original script would have been killer!

Geez... just saw the price that is listed on Ghostbusters.com...

$100 for this set? Man, that's steep.

I'm guessing that's for the box set with the Slimer and logo. The digibook will probably be cheaper.

So far that's the only version I've seen of the set.

If they're going to release one without the statue that's good though.

Ugh who is the design team in charge of the Ghostbusters releases, because they really suck at their job.

He's got a point.

The blue background with blinding light looks like it was meant for toothpaste packaging, and the logo appears to be having a stroke as it attempts to flash gang signs.
