Ghostbusters is a 2016 USA action comedy by Paul Feig.
Starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon. US: The Extended Version is uncut and presumably MPAA Unrated for:
- 2016 Sony [Extended + Theatrical Versions] RA 4k Blu-ray at US Amazon released on 11th October 2016
- 2016 Sony [Extended + Theatrical Versions] RA Blu-ray at US Amazon released on 11th October 2016
US: The Theatrical Version is uncut and MPAA PG-13 rated for supernatural action and some crude humor for:
- 2016 Sony [Theatrical Version only] R1 DVD at US Amazon released on 11th October 2016
Exists as a Theatrical Version and an Extended Version which is about 16 minutes longer.
The Australian film censors give a clue about the differences by rating the extended version as M (PG-15) for coarse language. By comparison the Theatrical Version was given an Australian PG, presumably free of coarse language.
There’s no news yet on the UK release but it is a fairly safe bet that it will follow the US pattern with an Extended Version on Blu-ray only.
Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return with Director Paul Feig’s unique and hilarious take on the classic, supernatural comedy, led by the freshest minds in comedy today, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. Together they team-up to save Manhattan from a sudden invasion of spirits, spooks and slime that engulfs the city. Robert Abele of TheWrap says, “This new A-team of ghostbusters are fresh and funny.”
