Steven Spielberg's sci-fi classic gets a double dip next month, though this new release is a downgrade from the previous 30th Anniversary Edition.
In an early announcement to retailers, Sony has lined up 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind,' starring Richard Dreyfuss, for Blu-ray release on February 11 as part of their Essentials Collection.
The release will be a two-disc set with 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1/Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtracks, and all of the supplements from the prior release. This edition just won't contain the poster and collectible booklet.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.95.
