Los Angeles, June 1 (IANS) Oscar-winning film “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” will soon be released in a digital format to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, the Blu-ray DVD of the film will feature never-seen-before footage from the sets of the film and will include a new interview with Spielberg, a report said.
“When ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial’ premiered in 1982, it captured the imaginations of people young, old and everyone in between in a way that was unparalleled in modern movie history,” said Craigh Kornblau, president of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
“A global cultural phenomenon-and the biggest box-office blockbuster of its day-E.T. brought out the child in all of us. We are thrilled audiences will now be able to experience the film in the astounding quality of Blu-ray,” he added.
The new version of the film, about an extra-terrestrial entity and his camaraderie with a young boy, includes two deleted scenes, a reunion with the cast and filmmaker, a feature on the evolution and creation of the movie and a discussion with composer John Williams.
