The 4K ‘Ghostbusters Ultimate Collection’ Skips The 2016 Reboot?


Looking to get all the Ghostbusters films in 4K in one place? Oh, let me rephrase that. Are ya looking for all the good Ghostbusters movies in 4K in one place? Then Walmart has just the thing for your this coming February.

We spotted this first over at Ghostbusters News. Walmart currently has a listing for this gift set which is missing a particular movie. Unfortunately, Paul Feig’s misfire, Ghostbusters: Answer The Call, doesn’t look to be included in this $88.99 gift set. How sad. Oh, what a loss. Jesus wept.


Honestly, this is probably because the set focuses on the original Ghostbusters universe and Afterlife. Throwing in a reboot wouldn’t make a lot of sense. From what we can tell, the collection includes:

  • Ghostbusters (1984)
  • Ghostbusters II
  • Ghostbusters Afterlife
  • Making Ghostbusters booklet
  • Collector’s Ghost Trap Box
  • A case with two additional discs, possibly extra features or documentaries.

I’m not sure what the two disks in the fourth case will be We speculated about them being documentaries, but it is too hard to tell due to the low resolution of the available image. Each film comes with a second disc which is probably loaded with extra features. So, maybe these are something new? Perhaps this Ultimate Collection also includes the documentary Cleanin’ Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters?

Either way, I had been holding off on buying the 4K versions of the first two films because I knew something like this was bound to happen once Afterlife hit the home video market. Given the price point on Walmart’s website, I wouldn’t expect more than what we see there. Don’t expect the ghost trap case to light up or anything.

What I do hope for is that each movie vase is at least a steel book. I’ve noticed that many of my older blu-ray cases have become very brittle in recent years. Does anyone else have this issue? My old DVD cases are just fine, but the translucent blue ones are just cracking left and right.
