Ghostbusters: Afterlife Delayed To 2021

 By Paul Rudoff on Mar. 31, 2020 at 7:44 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters: Afterlife

I can't say this comes as much of a surprise. Variety has just reported that Ghostbusters: Afterlife has been moved from July 10, 2020 to March 5, 2021. On the positive side, this gives Jason and the crew more time to refine those special effects, make other tweaks, and do everything to make it as perfect as possible. Once this pandemic is over, of course.

I'm going to assume that any merchandise directly related to Afterlife will also be postponed until when the movie is finally released. The companies might still go through with anything related to the classic movies. Hasbro took pre-orders on the Plasma Series and The Real Ghostbusters figures. They could still go ahead and release those on time to fulfill those pre-orders, since other than the Neutrona Wand from the Plasma Series, those aren't directly tied in with Afterlife. The only issue is whether the stay-at-home orders, and needing materials from China, will affect the production of these items.

We'll just have to wait and see how things go. In the meantime, we always have the monthly comics from IDW. They may or may not be able to do any printed books (depending on whether print shops had to shut down due to stay-at-home orders), but they can certainly do digital books. A lot of the artists, I think, work from home anyway. They could publish new digital books and then do some trade paperbacks later on to collect the digital stuff into a print form. Compared to some other companies, they may have it fairly easy in this situation.

Incomplete Special Features on the 2019 Ghostbusters 1&2 4K/Blu-ray Set - Watch The COMPLETE ShoWest Exhibitor Reel!!!

 By Paul Rudoff on Mar. 21, 2020 at 11:52 AM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Home Video

Last year, I had the honor of consulting with Sony on bonus features to include on the Ghostbusters 1 & 2 4K/Blu-ray set. I gave them a mighty list of things to find and, amazingly, they found a lot of them. I was overjoyed to know that these rare videos would, finally, get an official high-quality public release. While I am still pleased with the set, that joy turned to disappointment when I realized that several new videos were presented in an incomplete (or edited) form.

Unused Ghostbusters Theme Songs

 By Paul Rudoff on Mar. 19, 2020 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1

I ain't afraid of no Ray Parker Jr., and neither were the Ghostbusters.

Long before Columbia Pictures enlisted his help for a theme song to the 1984 classic film, they approached other musicians. None of the fans know how many other artists submitted music for the film, or even who all of those artists are, but two of these unused theme songs are now known... one of which is getting its first general public appearance right here on Spook Central today!

Ghostbusters In-Movie Commercials

 By Paul Rudoff on Mar. 17, 2020 at 5:14 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Ghostbusters 2

When Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, and Egon Spengler opened their little paranormal investigation and elimination business back in 1983, they knew they needed a television commercial in order to let others know of their new operation. Derek Osborn recently was recently given a box of old VHS tapes from his father, who was a video engineer at WKRR12 back in the 1980s. Amazingly, contained on those video relics were copies of the Ghostbusters' original commercials. Let's take a look at what he has found.

Shot On Site - Ghostbusters 2016 Ben's Deli Deleted Shot Location Visited

 By Paul Rudoff on Mar. 10, 2020 at 3:00 PM , Categories: Filming Locations, 2016 Parody Remake , Tags:

There are not many Ghostbusters filming locations that I have actually visited in person. Basically, I've only been to Rockefeller Center, Times Square, and the Statue of Liberty (the latter I haven't visited since the 1980s). I've certainly never been to any Ghostbusters (2016) locations, but that's because I don't live in or around Boston, Massachusetts. Well, that changed last month when I stumbled across one of that film's few New York City locations.
