Ghostbusters Reunite for the 30th Anniversary

8 casts are together again for Entertainment Weekly, but let's be honest: only one really matters, right?

An unexpected surprise was waiting this morning as Entertainment Weekly revealed their latest cover featuring a reunion of the Boys in Grey in celebration of Ghostbusters' 30th Anniversary.

The cover image features Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver but curiously a video created in tandem for the Today Show features Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson and Ivan Reitman.

Maybe Dan had some vodka to go and sell during the video or something, it's strange that he was around for the cover photo but not the interview (and that Annie and Ivan weren't on the cover). I'm wondering if maybe the reunion wasn't exactly a reunion and the cover was cobbled together from multiple shoots?

Regardless of those curiosities, the video is fun if brief. I had no idea that Al Roker was such a Ghostbusters fan and never picked up on any of his various references throughout the years. The article inside the issue will most likely go more in-depth and feature more photos of the cast reunion, and hopefully a longer interview with more Al Roker conversation exists and will be released somewhere down the line.

UPDATE: Apparently the whole gang was together for the photo shoot portion of the reunion if this photo released by Entertainment Weekly is to be believed:

Where in the World is Janine Melnitz?

Sorry Janine, guess that's what happens when you decide to date a Tully?

Ghostbusters is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary (a few months late, as the film was originally released in June of 1984). The film is enjoying a re-release in theaters having taken in over two million at the box office during the Labor Day weekend and a crispy new 4K transfer coming to Blu-ray on September 16th.

As part of the festivities, media coverage involving Ghostbusters has hit a fever pitch. One of the more interesting segments that has been released is a fun interview in front of the Hook & Ladder No. 8 in New York City with Janine Melnitz herself, Annie Potts. In the short video, the actor muses over where she believes the famed Ghostbusters secretary might be after thirty years. And her career success (or lack thereof) might surprise you.

Here's the video care of Vanity Fair:
