Sony is bringing Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II out together on Blu-ray, and putting the first film back in cinemas...

This one's a story that's going to make some of you, us included, feel suitably old: it's Ghostbusters' 30th birthday this year.

And whilst rumours persist over whether Ghostbusters 3 will finally go before the cameras before 2014 is out, Sony has plans to celebrate the first film ahead of that.

In the US, it's going to be re-releasing the movie into cinemas for a start. It's set to play at over 700 sites in the States on August 29th this year, and hopefully that strategy will be played out elsewhere in the world. At our local cinema would be good.

Then, a 30th anniversary Blu-ray, with new special features, is set to land on September 16th. The new disc will carry over some of the old material from the previous release, but will also feature a gallery of artwork, the Ghostbusters music video, and part one of a retrospective by the name of Who You Gonna Call. Said retrospective will be a roundtable discussion with Dan Aykroyd and director Ivan Reitman.

And here's the news many have been waiting for: Ghostbusters II is coming to Blu-ray as well. Its disc will have the second part of that retrospective, as well as deleted scenes and a Bobby Brown music video.

A limited edition gift set will also be available. Here's what it all looks like...

When we hear more on whether the cinema re-release is heading to the UK, we'll give you a shout.
