When Steven Spielberg re-released “E.T.” in 2002 to celebrate its 20th anniversary, he pulled a George Lucas and changed some things.
Most notably, he added some computer animation to E.T.’s face and he digitally took the guns out of the cops’ hands and replaced them with walkie-talkies.
Well, Spielberg regretted making those changes, and now he’s making up for them.
“E.T.” is coming out on Blu-ray in October to mark its 30th anniversary . . . and it’s the ORIGINAL movie.
The purists win again!
