New DVD/VOD: Close Encounters of the Third Kind – Director’s Cut (4K Restoration) (PG)

On its 40th anniversary, audiences will be able to enjoy Steven Spielberg’s science fiction adventure in a new 4K digital print for the first time.

Made in 1977, following the success of ‘Jaws’, this is a compelling story about a group of people who try and contact alien intelligence.

Electrical lineman Roy Neary encounters a UFO on a deserted road whilst investigating a major power cut. He becomes increasingly obsessed with UFOs and subliminal messaging following his experience, distancing himself from his wife and children but drawing him closer towards parallel investigations being conducted by scientists, the military and other survivors of encounters who are attempting to communicate with the mysterious otherworldly presence.

Audiences will also be treated to a short about the making of the film which includes an all new interview with Steven Spielberg.
