Close Encounters of the Third Kind Trailer

"What do you want?" "I just want to know that it's, it's really happening." Sony has released a full-length trailer for the upcoming 40th anniversary theatrical re-release of Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The classic sci-fi film first hit theaters in December of 1977, two years after Jaws. This re-release was first teased with a "mysterious" air traffic control video that didn't explain what exactly it was teasing, but that was quickly solved. Now we know the film is returning to theaters again September 1st and if you've never seen on it on the big screen before, now is your chance. Don't miss it! Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, Bob Balaban, Fran├žois Truffaut, Warren Kemmerling, and Cary Guffey. This trailer definitely makes this movie seem like a true classic - feast your eyes on this.

Here's the full re-release trailer for Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind, from YouTube:

You can also still watch that first ATC teaser for the Close Encounters of the Third Kind re-release here.

After an encounter with UFOs, a line worker feels undeniably drawn to an isolated area in the wilderness where something spectacular is about to happen. Close Encounters of the Third Kind was the sixth feature film directed (and written by) Steven Spielberg. It was first released in December of 1977. At the time, Columbia Pictures was having trouble and pushed Spielberg to finish it faster. They later let him go back and add more scenes to make a special edition "Director's Cut" of the film, which was then re-released in late 1980. There's no confirmation yet on which version of the film will be re-released this year. Visit the official website for updates. Close Encounters of the Third Kind will be re-released in theaters for the 40th anniversary for one week only starting September 1st, 2017 later this fall. Who is excited to revisit this?

I would love to see it again. Sometimes in the middle of 1980s. That would be so cool ...

I've never been a fan of this movie. It was WAY too slow for me. E.T. on the other hand...classic.

It's a great trailer if you've seen the movie! If you haven't, then it could not possibly be filled with more spoilers!

I really hope that they release the original version which, I think, would be appropriate since their billing this as a 40th anniversary re-release. I believe, however, that we have at least one shot in the trailer from the Special Edition and while it's my favorite scene that was added, we'd still be better off just seeing the movie the way it came out. I'm so excited that this is getting a full re-release though!

I am still curious what version this will be...the original has always been my favorite but I do like the desert ship and Roy shower scene too. The "Directors" cut contains the original and the special edition's sans the inside of the Ship, which is fine by me.
