Ever since Universal announced during CES 2012 that it would deliver many of its classic films on Blu-ray this year as part of a centennial celebration, we've been keeping a careful eye out for news regarding Steven Spielberg's classic E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. While we still don't know the release date, price or if it will contain the changes made in the 2002 edition of the flick, Universal posted a trailer for the Blu-ray that confirmed a digital remastering from the 35MM film, 7.1 surround sound and "hours of bonus features". Additionally, forum posters on Blu-ray.com have noticed this (probably not final) box art appearing on Amazon UK recently. After waiting for word since a new distribution deal brought the flick back to Universal in 2008, a few months of silence hasn't broken us, but hopefully more details appear soon. The best guess still sees the 30th Anniversary release hitting store shelves in time for the holidays (likely after Jaws, which is scheduled for release August 14th), when we can relive our childhoods in proper 1080p HD at last.
Sandwichjohnfilms started in 2009. I wanted to make a place where people like myself could come and get up to date Movie, Television and pop culture news and information. The site started as a passion of mine and grew into what it is today.
Our goal here is to give you the most accurate news and information when it hits the web. I don't post what the studio wants or asked me to post, I post stories and interviews I would want to read myself. I will bring you Exclusive interviews with the star makers in Hollywood with a little twist of Sandwich.
When we do our Movie, Television and Book reviews they are written from our point of view. We are not professional movie critics and we do not get payed if we write a positive review or a negative. It is our point of view and take it with a grain of salt. We are like you, everyday working people who love Movies and Television.
