Following another trend of late, it looks like Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters” film, which opens this week in cinemas everywhere, will get a decidedly longer extended cut when it scores a home video release.
Feig’s films like “Bridesmaids,” “Spy,” and “The Heat” have all come to disc in unrated and extended editions, and “Ghostbusters” is no different. The director tells DVD Talk:
“We are literally, as I talk to you, I’m on lunch break from doing our extended cut of the movie. There will be one, and it will be a good 15 to 17 minutes longer than the theatrical feature.”
It’s not quite as long as Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” which ran thirty minutes longer and so has scored better notices than its theatrical cut. “Ghostbusters” reviews are on the uptick, the film holding steady at 77% and a 6.5/10 on Rotten Tomatoes which puts it on par with other releases this year like “Elvis and Nixon,” “The Shallows” and “Keanu”.
