Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has produced an E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Gift Set, which is sure to be a hot seller for all you Gen-X types.
After all, we’re not sure if anyone else would purchase this except sentimental types who need a dash of nostalgia in their lives. And aren’t most people streaming or illegally downloading these types of films anyway?
But we don’t advocate the latter because E.T is a pretty good film. It’s got aliens, kids and (somewhat) evil U.S. government agents. It was so iconic in fact that it spawned a horrendous copycat that was laced by shameless product placements by McDonalds (it’s called Mac and Me- look it up).
But that said, the E.T. 35th Anniversary set is pretty cool and it holds up pretty well too after more than three decades. Those looking to get this nifty set will get premium packaging, includes a re-mastered CD soundtrack of the original Grammy Award-winning album, is packed with over three hours of bonus features and includes a collector’s booklet with behind-the-scenes stories and rare images from the archives.
It’s also available on 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital, so you can watch E.T. and his buddy Drew Barrymore in full glory on that big flat screen in your living room.
