Sony Pictures is gearing up to release a new Ghostbusters movie box set, titled the Ghostbusters Ultimate Collection, in conjunction with the release of Jason Reitman's sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Hilariously, the 2016 all-female Ghostbusters directed by Paul Feig was completely left out.
Understandably, Feig was seemingly perturbed and took to Twitter to express himself, calling out Sony directly:
His tweet reads:
Um … @SonyPictures , I know this must be a mistake. We do have a lot of fans and Bill, Dan and Ernie were in it and it won the Kids Choice Award for Best Feature Film the year it came out. So, I guess this was just an oversight?
Unfortunately it appears Feig still can't grasp the idea that true Ghostbusters fans absolutely loathed his 2016 rendition. Sony, however are clearly very aware of the negative stigma surrounding Feig's Ghostbusters, so omitting it from a box set titled "Ultimate Collection" makes a lot of sense. Majority of Ghostbusters fans would never and will never consider Feig's entry in the franchise a notable one, let alone a worthy addition to any collection.
The Ghostbusters Ultimate Collection and Ghostbusters: Afterlife are slated to hit shelves February 1st, 2022!
