According to Box Office Mojo, Ghostbusters (2016) was the then tenth highest-grossing summer released film in the United States. Its total gross was $125,174,627. It does not appear that a sequel is in the works.
In the lead-up to the release of the movie, it was referred to as Ghostbusters or as Ghostbusters 2016. It turns out the full name of the movie is Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. The full title is what appears on the upcoming digital and Blu-ray releases. In other words, the movie did not get a name change.
