Wow...cool! Let's just hope they don't slide again. I'm hoping the last delay was due to wanting to make sure the remaster was good. Looking forward to them.

Um...2.20:1? Tell me that's a misprint. Ordinarily with something like this I would just assume as much, but to put that right after specifically saying it's had a new transfer...and then to be that specific about the ratio...it just seems a little fishy. Also, the 70mm prints *were* in 2.20:1 according to imdb, so...anyway, I hope this is wrong because it'll undoubtedly be cropped at that ratio. Or at the very least, will seem that way even if it's the Director's intent...now that I'm used to the DVD framing I've had for years. I don't want an "Apocalypse Now" debacle on our hands on a title like this one!

I have the same question as Johnny... will GBII be released as well? Back when the rumors were floating about GB being released on Oct. 21st of 2008, the rumor had GB and GBII being released in a 2 pack. Any word on this?

Either way.... this is AWESOME news!

Sounds like an excellent release -- and Croweyes, don't worry, this wasn't shot by Storaro, and Sony *will* transfer this in its OAR.

I have such a soft spot for this film. Will gladly preorder.

Ghostbusters II is not yet scheduled for release. It will probably be released around the same time,
but it HAS NOT been announced yet. Also the aspect ratio for this one has typically been 2.35:1, but
it may just be a typo, or they may have opened up the matte from 2.35:1 to 2.20:1. I'm guessing
it's just a typo.

im a huge GB fan but i dunno if i can justify buying this fir the 99th time, not at 30 bucks each anyways....i saw an HD broadcast of this a little while ago and wasnt impressed at all. not to say it will be the same for blu ray but its usually a good indicator.

i do like the special features tho.

How cool is this, hopefully it will look as good as it sounds. Plus to have the stay puff marshmellow man in full 1080p........

it's to bad the Ray Parker Jr music video did not make this cut. It's soooo 80's. Likewise let's hope G2 gets released with some proper care.
