National Film Registry Adds Ghostbusters, Top Gun, and More

By
'Ghostbusters.'

The Library of Congress on Wednesday morning revealed the 25 new titles it's sending this year to the National Film Registry for preservation. New are L.A. Confidential, The Shawshank Redemption, The Mark of Zorro, Top Gun, and that Thomas Edison thing of a sneeze in the 1800s. Just in time to help with its reboot's press campaign, Ghostbusters also made the cut. Still no word on how Dan Aykroyd's vodka is doing, though.

Anyway, here are all the 2015 additions, in alphabetical order:
