E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted July 21, 2012 10:47 AM by Josh Katz

Universal 100thAs part of its 100th Anniversary this year, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will offer special Blu-rays of selected catalog titles, and the 30th Anniversary Edition of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial will arrive in the fall wave. Director Steven Spielberg's classic science-fiction fable focuses on the relationship between lonely preteen Elliott (Henry Thomas, Gangs of New York) and a space alien marooned on Earth.

As Elliott bonds with the alien - whom he nicknames "E.T." - he begins to develop a psychic connection that extends far past the doldrums of his suburban community. It is this link that inspires Elliott to devise a daring plan to return the creature to his home planet, though Elliott finds his efforts hampered by E.T.'s failing health and the increasingly intrusive presence of government agents.

Written by Melissa Mathison (Twilight Zone: The Movie), the film's ensemble cast includes Drew Barrymore (Charlie's Angels), Dee Wallace (The Frighteners), Peter Coyote (Erin Brockovich), Erika Eleniak (Under Siege), and C. Thomas Howell (Gettysburg).

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial was also a big success at the 1983 Academy Awards Ceremony, winning the following Oscars:
