Ghostbusters International and an affiliated franchise are most likely already in your city. And easily accessible through your internet or telecommunications provider. As its been a number of years since GBI as a company and club has had a domain name, the time is right for GBI to not just have a dot wordpress dot com url.
It’s 2020, twenty twenty. Let that sink in. The GHOSTBUSTERS™ franchise celebrates it’s 36th anniversary by welcoming a continuation and a sequel of the original films with Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Obligatory plug: Coming to theaters on July 10, 2020. Directed by Jason Reitman. And all a new Ghostbusters film will bring to ghostheads.
I’ve wanted GBI to have a new domain name, it had to be the “right one.” And personally it had to feel right as well. I didn’t need to just celebrate the 35th anniversary by also having a domain name again for GBI.
This year it’s better early on to have a new domain name for Ghostbusters International, for Ghostbusters: Afterlife premiere, theatrical releases, and home video releases. With that, in digital text Ghostbusters International new dot com is:
This 3″ blind-boxed collection features the returning legendary quartet of Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore plus familiar faces such as Louis Tully, Janine, Dana and, of course, Slimer! As if that wasn’t enough there’s the upgraded Ecto-1 as well as new villains in the form of Nunzio Scoleri, Janosz Poha and the terrifying Vigo The Carpathian!
Each figure is 3” blind-boxed and certain pieces come with a character-specific accessory.
PLUS: 4 hidden chase figures for you to hunt and collect!
On September 15, 2014 we posted about a new GHOSTBUSTERS phone number Sony and Ghostbusters Incorporated set up at our original headquarters. Most clients and ghostheads have already heard Janine’s prerecorded message. Hearing a message is so 30 years ago.
As we knew the recording is important and we like to do this kind of thing, we paid someone at least 5 bucks to hold a camera and press record.
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! When you call 212-897-1964 you’ll hear a pre-recorded message from Janine Melnitz! The Ghostbusters first employee, then receptionist, and today the senior administrator at Ghostbusters Incorporated!
If you’re calling from outside the area code, say like Vancouver long distance charges will most likely apply.
Vanity Fair spoke with Annie Potts who portrayed then receptionist Janine Melnitz in Ghostbusters™ and Ghostbusters II™. Annie Potts was asked where she saw the future of the character.
Interesting since Janine Melnitz is one of the most important people in Ghostbusters Incorporated history. I totally get that Annie Potts wouldn’t publicly give out details about Janine Melnitz’s life.
