There are alternate titles because, during production, Columbia Pictures still hadn’t cleared the rights to the name Ghostbusters, which was still owned by Universal.

Here’s the final commercial from the movie –

Released in 1984, Ghostbusters remains one of the greatest comedies ever made. The movie centres on Peter Venkman (Murray), Ray Stantz (Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Ramis) and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) who decide to open up a business that specialises in busting ghosts. They are hired by Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) to investigate a series of strange occurrences in her apartment building.

The movie grossed an astounding $282 million at the global box office, working from a relatively modest $30 million budget. It paved the way for a sequel, Ghostbusters II, which was released in 1989. It brought in $215 million during its theatrical run.

Sony is gearing up to release a sequel, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which will take place in the continuity of the original. The movie was supposed to hit theaters in July but due to the pandemic, it’s now set to arrive on March 5th, 2021.
