ET is getting a special edition 4K Gift Box for November


ET recently returned to theaters to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film’s release, and a new gift set will also be released in time for the holidays. The set will include the film on 4K Blu-ray, a metal lunch box, a thermos, a filmmaking booklet and a certificate of authenticity for any reason. The film will also have a regular 4K release on the same day, November 1. This is the second time ET has seen a release on 4K, and the 35th anniversary set included the same book. It looks like the disc release will remain the same, so if you already have it, you’ll only be buying it for the lunchbox and thermos.
