The first movie I ever saw in the theater was E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial when I was five years old. In the 30 years that followed, I honestly don't think I ever watched the movie again until a few weeks ago, when I received the 30th Anniversary Blu-ray. I suppose it's just one of those movies I never revisited, but I'm glad I waited until this anniversary edition, because Steven Spielberg's classic looks simply stunning in the high definition format.
I was recently invited to sit down with Dee Wallace, who played Mary, the mother of Elliot (Henry Thomas) and Gertie (Drew Barrymore) in this beloved family adventure, making its Blu-ray debut October 9. Take a look at my exclusive video interview with the actress, along with a little bonus treat.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released June 11th, 1982 and stars Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace, Robert MacNaughton, Drew Barrymore, Peter Coyote, K.C. Martel, Sean Frye, C. Thomas Howell. The film is directed by Steven Spielberg.
