Sony’s New Ghostbusters Ultimate Collection Boxset Leaves Out 2016 Film

Sony has announced a new Ghostbusters boxset that includes the two-disc video game and all four films from 2016, but no mention is made of the original 1984 film. The move was likely intentional as Sony’s foremost priority appears to be aligning with its main studio boss Amy Pascal who previously said she felt bad for not making an effort on behalf of women in Hollywood by rereleasing it herself.

The “ghostbusters new movie” is a film that was released in 2016. It is not included in Sony’s recently released Ghostbusters Ultimate Collection Boxset.

A new Ghostbusters Ultimate Collection boxset has been unveiled by Sony, which includes Ghostbusters: Afterlife but excludes the 2016 picture. There are no details about the boxset yet, however there are images of the packaging.

With no more information in the listing, here’s what the package looks to contain: The 1984 Ghostbusters film, a reprinting of Don Shay’s 1985 book Making Ghostbusters, which details the production of that original film down to script notes (and is described by Patreon Ghostbusters News as a “highly rare, holy grail” for collectors), the 1989 sequel Ghostbusters 2, 2021’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and what appear to be two discs of bonus content

It’s on sale for $145.96 at Walmart, confirming Ghostbusters: Answer the Call’s exclusion. Three films and digital codes are shown in the ghost-trap-styled case.

Paul Feig, the director, has resorted to social media to query if this is a mistake. Slashfilm has backed the director, claiming that it wouldn’t be a “ultimate collection” if it didn’t contain all of the flicks.

@SonyPictures, uh… I’m sure this is a mistake. We have a large following, and Bill, Dan, and Ernie starred in it, which won the Kids Choice Award for Best Feature Film the year it was released. So, I presume this was simply a miscalculation? We’re all Ghostbusters.

Sony is following up with a Blu-ray combo set that includes the same three films but excludes the 2016 release.

The home release of Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set for February 1st. These combinations are expected to be launched around the same time.
