Full Metal Jackets: We Can All Phone Home Together

Turn on your heartlight! Steven Spielberg’s beloved 1982 masterpiece ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial‘ celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, and the U.K. will light the way with a Blu-ray SteelBook!

The classic sci-fi family drama stars Henry Thomas, a very young Drew Barrymore and Peter Coyote. According to Universal Studios Home Entertainment, it’s set to have a fall Blu-ray release.

The U.K. will also get a SteelBook for this Blu-ray. (Click the image below to enlarge.)

I really like the design of this SteelBook, which highlights two classic images from the film. I’m just not sure about all of the white right now, though. A black or navy blue background would have probably made the moon and finger glow even more striking, but maybe that’s just me.

Not much is known about the release yet, but the Blu-ray will feature re-mastered 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack, and will include an Ultraviolet Digital Copy.

    If you like that, you’re gonna love this…

    In the UK, although Blu-ray is not at the selling point as it is in the US, we love a boxset collectable, and the UK has gone nuts this month with Steelbooks. There are large numbers of Fox titles etc relaunching in steelbook form, sometimes retailer exclusive (Amazon UK and play.com). Play even has a special section just for the large number of lush steelbooks available, and all cheap!!

    At the moment, when I scroll down the main page to see the recent comments, I see the banners for this blog entry and for E’s review of books about Alien and Aliens. Boy, that imagery takes me back. Thanks. 🙂
