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.
The new 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters digi-book well looks like a book, contains what and how Ghostbusters and its sequel came together, inserts, Ghostbusters™ 30th Anniversary Blu-ray, and for the first time in any century Ghostbusters II™ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray.
As their has never been a follow up book to Making Ghostbusters I can appreciate “The Story of Ghostbusters II” for the 25th Anniversary. With concept art, ghost model building, and pictures from Ghostbusters II™. Which weren’t all in the theatrical version.
This is the first and most likely the only time Ghostbusters II™ will see the Blu-ray of light. Where then is the respect? Why did someone in authority approve a sideways cut off from the disc Ghostbusters II “victory/peace” sequel logo? You could say the logo is correct when one turns the disc with the title facing to the right. If you’re anything like me, you place your discs in a player with the logo facing upwards depending on the placement of art and/or title.
Ghosthead websites and movies sites began reviewing the 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters Blu-rays within days of the release. At Ghostbusters Incorporated we’re far more busier. Ya know making sure the world is safe from disruptive ghosts and on the rare occasion those creatures that want to end all life as we know it for their own selfish agenda.
Some of us didn’t have the time we would have liked to have watched, let alone review new Ghostbusters Blu-rays. Then before we knew it, GB Inc. seemed to have become a food site because of our partnerships with Krispy Kreme and the Stay-Puft Corp. Before we really get into the busy season GB Inc. asked me to watch movies (at least they weren’t workplace safety videos this time) and review them.
Ghostheads sites and movie sites have begun to review the 30th Anniversary editions of Ghostbusters™ and 25th Anniversary Ghostbusters II™ Blu-Rays sets. We wanted to put together a growing list of reviews from these well respected sites. In time we may add more reviews, including one from company employees and franchise members.
Reviews (written or spoken) may not necessarily reflect the opinions, thoughts, and actions of Ghostbusters Incorporated executives, shareholders, middle-level management, and company employees.
For Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary and the new Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II Blu-rays, Sony and Ghostbusters Incorporated have set up a new number, right out of Ghostbusters HQ!
