We just got word that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is going to released Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II in 4K Ultra HD format on June 7th. These releases will also include all the anniversary Blu-ray bonus materials including the previously released legacy content, commentary and the interactive Slimer Mode.
The film were restored from the original 35mm camera negatives which allows for the full resolution, detail and color depth available with the 4K process. The sound has also been remixed for home theaters.
This move is, of course, to tie in with the upcoming release of Paul Feig's Ghostbusters on July 15th.
Here are the specs and features of the two new 4K Ultra HD releases:
