Um … @SonyPictures, I know this must be a mistake,” 彼が書きました. “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. そう, I guess this was just an oversight? #weareallghostbusters.

しかしながら, The Hollywood Reporter notes that there may be a canonical reason for Sony to not including the 2016 reboot in its collector’s edition. The movies that are included are the 1984 “ゴーストバスターズ” as well as its 1989 sequel as well as Jason Reitman’s recently-released “ゴーストバスターズ: Afterlife.

それでも, fans wonder if the poor reception that the “ゴーストバスターズ” reboot had something to do with Sony keeping it out of its collection. ハリウッドレポーター previously noted that Dan Akyroyd appeared on a British morning show where he diplomatically criticized Feig, saying that he spent too much on the movie and didn’t take enough input from the original stars. しかしながら, Akyroyd made it clear that he was indeed a fan of the 2016 映画.
