Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind is getting all spruced up for its 40th anniversary this year, including special remastered screenings and a sparkling new 4K UHD transfer and Blu-ray release. You can catch Close Encounters in theaters starting on September 1, then enjoy it in a more intimate setting when it drops on home video September 19.

Even after all these years, it's still a remarkable film to study and enjoy, with incredible cast chemistry, masterful cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmund, dazzling SFX by Douglas Trumbull, and a soaring score by John Williams, all injected with heart and wonder by a young Spielberg operating on all creative cylinders, forging what would become his signature style of tonal equilibrium.

Watch the skies and check out the new restoration release trailer and poster below.
