‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ Coming to Blu-ray Disc

According to an article at HomeMediaMagazine.com, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is working on a new 30th Anniversary edition of Steven Spielberg’s ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ that will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on November 13. This marks the first confirmed appearance of a Spielberg film on either high definition home video format.

The Blu-ray Disc will include all three versions of the film: 1977 theatrical cut, the 1980 special edition, and the 1998 director’s cut, all on a single disc via seamless branching. Also included on the disc is a new Spielberg interview, a retrospective documentary, and two Blu-ray exclusives: new storyboard-to-scene comparisons and the original 1977 Watch the Skies featurette.

This new Ultimate Edition of ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ will carry a steep $49.95 SRP, and should be worth every penny. Check back regularly for full disc specs and high resolution cover art.
