Who you gonna call? The 1984 sci-fi comedy Ghostbusters is being re-released in theaters just in time for Halloween! We ain’t afraid of no ghosts!
Sony Pictures Entertainment announced Thursday that it is bringing back the box office hit that spawned a 1988 sequel for a weekly engagement in theaters next month. Industry insiders say the cinema event could rival the recent revival of Disney’s 1994 classic The Lion King. The animated musical, featuring voiceover work by James Earl Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, and Nathan Lane, has earned more than $40 million since its return to theaters earlier this month.
Ghostbusters is coming back to movie theaters for three Thursdays in October. On Oct. 13, 20, and 27, the movie will be featured on about 500 big screens nationwide, according to Sony.
