For some reason electronics and entertainment retailer Best Buy (US) really likes Steel Books. The steel bound “hard” covers cases that protect in recent years Blu-Rays. Almost always (at least in the US) a movie exclusive for Best Buy is a steelbook version.
It isn’t a surprise that Best Buy will have exclusive steel book versions for both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II when they’re reissued from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Kinda surprising, (as far as we know) these Ghostbusters/II steel books are exclusive to Canadian Best Buy locations.
As of this evening Best Buy’s site within the US doesn’t have photos for the new, upcoming releases. With artwork like above and below the read more, our neighbors to the north display the photos like fine art.
If your country (or region) will also have exclusive Ghostbusters steel books, please let us know in the comments.
When Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murrary) and his Columbia University colleagues (Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson) are kicked out of their prestigious academic posts, they start a private practice as professional ghost-catchers. Although the three parascientists are idle for awhile, their television advertisements finally pay off when beautiful Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) contracts them. It seems her apartment has become the entryway for ghastly ghosts and goofy ghouls hellbent on terrorizing New York City. Soon they’re going to her rescue, trying to rid the city of the slimy creatures. GHOSTBUSTERS hit US screens in June of 1984 and went on to become one of the most successful comedy films of all time, spawning a sequel and a popular animated series.
The band of ghost busters are back to save the universe. Having been put out of commission due to a judicial court order, the fearless four pull out all psychic stops to put an end to a demonic river of slime and rescue Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) and her child. In order to achieve this, they must convince New York that all the city’s negative energy is feeding the evil spirits in the river, so the city’s residents need to resist all negativity!
Both steel books will retail for $22.99 and will be released to Canadian Best Buy locations on June 21, 2016.
