Phoning home again: 'E.T.' 30 years later
Los Angeles • How old is too old to sob like a little girl at "E.T. â the Extra-Terrestrial"? If you are a child of the '80s, the movie probably holds a special place in your pop-culture history and in your heart. The Steven Spielberg film that would become a 1980s phenomenon is coming out on Blu-Ray for the first time Tuesday â 30 years, four Academy Awards and nearly $800 million after its theatrical release. To commemorate this, theaters across the country recently showed a digitally re-mastered version of the film for one night only.
