This week, Indiegogo and Kickstarter-funded Ghostbusters documentary, Ghostheads, announced its official premiere date. The film was featured at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, which was held in New York City in April.
Ghostheads’ synopsis reads:
“Ghostheads is a documentary that explores the extreme side of the Ghostbusters fandom, and looks back at the impact the franchise has had on the world over the past three decades. Through interviews with key cast and crew, including Dan Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman, Ernie Hudson and many more, as well as with Ghostbusters fans all over the world, Ghostheads presents countless humanizing stories that will connect with audiences about comradery, overcoming obstacles, and that no one should ever feel alone or isolated. Ghostheads will show what really separates a fandom from the rest. Every Ghosthead is unique. Every Franchise is its own.”
Ghostheads is now set to premiere on Netflix on July 15th, which is the same day the Ghostbusters reboots hits theaters. Sharing details about the film, director Brendan Mertens revealed in a statement:
“Ghostheads are friendly people — there’s not really any animosity like in other fandoms we’ve seen. They really use their powers for good — raising money for their local communities, providing a place for people who may otherwise feel alone, and visiting children’s hospitals in full gear.”
“We’d love people to go and see the reboot, and then, kick back with a nice frosty Ecto-Cooler and watch our movie at home so they can see how the film has impacted the lives of so many. Who knows? Maybe we’ll help some people find their own inner Ghosthead!”
