Same Old Story, But With New Title

Avid movie followers and science geeks should not be misled when a new DVD is released to the market entitled, "Ghostbusters: Answer the Call." This is the same movie that flopped this summer, Paul Feig’s 2016 "Ghostbusters" reboot.

The most talked-about movie made only US$ 217.7 million worldwide on a US$ 144 million budget. But it's still on track to lose over US$ 70 million, mostly in marketing. An expansion of the Ghostbusters universe, including an animated movie and TV show, is still in the works, but plans for a sequel have been scrapped.

There's hope for more Kate McKinnon, though, if "Ghostbusters" becomes a huge home video success. Except, the film will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray as "Ghostbusters: Answer the Call." That's not quite going from "Edge of Tomorrow" to "Live. Die. Repeat.", but it's still an unusual move meant really to ambush viewers who were not aware about the disappointment it caused just a few weeks ago.

Here are the details:
  • "Ghostbusters: Answer the Call" Extended Edition & Theatrical Version
  • 4 Unearthed deleted scenes
  • 11 Totally Possessed Alternate Scenes and more than 60 minutes of additional extended and alternate scenes with Ultraviolet download
  • 6 Jokes-A-Plenty alternate take reels
  • 5 Supernatural Featurettes
  • 2 Hysterically Haunting Gag Reels
"Ghostbusters: Answer the Call" — which is probably what it should have been called along; it’s easier than saying, "I'm not talking about the 1984 Ghostbusters, I mean the 2016 Ghostbusters" — will be released on Digital HD on 27 September, and Blu-Ray and DVD on 11 October. Just in time to show your children some spooky sexist jokes, boring dialogues, uninspiring characters and predictable storylines for Halloween.
