The original Ghostbusters followed four scientists – including the late Harold Ramis (who passed away in 2014) as Dr. Egon Spengler) – who set up a ghost removal service in New York City, in the midst of a slew of paranormal activity.

The film was the second-highest grossing movie of 1984 with $229.2 million, which would equate to a $610.1 million gross today when adjusted for inflation.

The original classic spawned the 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II, along with an animated TV show, several video games and the 2016 soft reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
