E.T. (USA) in October

Universal have announced the US Blu-ray release of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for October 2012 (a specific date is TBC). Steven Spielberg's 1982 adventure classic has been digitally remastered for this 30th Anniversary Edition release and Blu-ray debut. The new presentation and one of the new extras will also receive a DVD release.

Those extras look to be the same as the UK release announced earlier today, but with a couple of minor additions that may simply have been missed off the UK press release (they are an Olympics TV Spot and a "Design, Photographs and Marketing" galleries section). The version of the film included is the original theatrical cut. Features are outlined below...
