The film has been digitally remastered and will feature a new 7.1 Dolby surround sound track. The version of the film will be the beloved 1982 theatrical releases (Meaning the gun will remain in the movie, a change Spielberg made to the movie in 2002). Bonus features will include an all-new interview with Spielberg, and “The E.T. Journals” featuring never-before-seen footage from the set of the film, plus the usual assortment of trailers, TV spots, photos and more.
The limited edition version will come with the coolest silver model of ET’s spaceship, which when opened, plays the theme music from the movie and the steps lower to reveal a small version of ET. This version will cost $140, but will also likely end up being a highly valuable collectors item and only available via Amazon. The regular version, the BluRay disc and extras without the ship will sell for $24.
All of it goes on sale Oct 9.
