Ghostbusters (2016)
Paul Feig's ill-fated parody remake features a few locations from the original movies. While enroute to the Stonebrook Theatre, the team in their new Ecto-1 cruise down the FDR Drive. This spot on the FDR Drive relates to the spot in the original Ghostbusters where Ray and Winston were driving at night and discussing the end of the world. In the image below, you'll see some yellow barrels on the left side. Those are placed where an exit ramp is. That exit ramp ends at street level at the spot where Ray and Winston started driving. Today, that side road has been replaced with a park, so the ramp takes you to the traffic light at the adjacent road.

The movie has been released in Theatrical and Extended Cut versions on Blu-ray, DVD (Theatrical only), and 4K Ultra HD/3D Blu-ray/2D Blu-ray Combo Pack.
