Ghostbusters picture

Trivia: The "Demonic Balloons" that attack the Ghostbusters are almost direct re-creations of real Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons from the 1930's. The filmmakers decided to use the real designs in order to represent the "spirits" of New York's history... and also because they were quite eerie and unsettling.

Trivia: While no official explanation was given as to why the planned theatrical release was canceled, it has been speculated by insiders that Universal bailed on the release due to the large number of franchise-based Sci-Fi and action films being released in 2016 providing too much competition for an original property such as "Spectral", as well as Universal being leery over the project after the disappointing domestic box office of one of their other major 2016 releases, "Warcraft."
