Nominated for two Academy Awards® – Best Effects, Visual Effects; and Best Music, Original Song for Ray Parker Jr.’s ever-popular title tune – “Ghostbusters” boasts an incredible cast led by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramisa nd Ernie Hudson as a group of intrepid paranormal investigators who go into business for themselves to rid haunted buildings of troublesome spirits, unaware that their endeavor could save the world. Written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, and produced and directed by Ivan Reitman, “Ghostbusters” also stars Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts and William Atherton.
Upon opening on June 8, 1984, “Ghostbusters” took American movie theaters by storm, beginning its run as the No. 1 film, and continuing to attract audiences for a theatrical run of an eye-popping 30 weeks. The title song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top 100 chart and remained a national bestseller for more than 20 weeks – including Halloween, when children all across the U.S. dressed as Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore.
