It has been 30 years since Ghostbusters hit the movie screens and to celebrate, the marketing team at Sony has big party plans. The festivities began a little early on August 20th as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man made a visit to NBC’s Today show to honor Al Roker’s 60th birthday. (How the two connect is a mystery), but the biggest news is that a restored and remastered version of the original 1984 film will return to theaters this Labor Day weekend in over 700 locations in the United States and Canada for a limited engagement starting August 29. Other marketing…er…party plans include:

A bunch of new merchandise from Sony Pictures Consumer Products will be released including products from Lego, Mattel, Funko, Mad Engine and others.


Sony Pictures Consumer Products has partnered with Gallery 1988 to create a once-in a lifetime experience, displaying original paintings, limited edition prints, and sculptures inspired by the film.
