Here is some news that has this '80s kid GEEKED, E.T. is being rereleased for theatrical showings exclusively on IMAX screens to celebrate the film's 40th anniversary. The trailer for the new IMAX release of E.T. will premiere during showings of Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World Dominion which arrives at theaters on June 10, almost 40 years to the day since E.T. originally debuted in theaters on June 11, 1982. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial will then be released exclusively on IMAX screens nationwide beginning August 12, 2022.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, originally released in the summer of 1982, not only soared to become the highest-grossing film of the year, capturing four Academy Awards® and nine Oscar® nominations including Best Picture, but it also captured the hearts of audiences around the globe. Four decades later, it still ignites the joy, wonder, discovery, magic and heartbreak of childhood. And E.T. isn't just nostalgic for us '80s kids, because my 13-year-old daughter LOVES the film and I am sure is going to demand that we go to see it on an IMAX screen this summer for a family outing to the movie theater.


IMAX is also bringing another classic Steven Spielberg summer blockbuster back to movie theaters this year with JAWS. The 1975 thriller will be released on IMAX screens and can be seen for the first time in RealD 3D beginning September 2. Duunnn dunnn… duuuunnnn duun… duuunnnnnnnn dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun ... will you be wrapping up your summer by going to see the original JAWS movie on an IMAX screen in 3D?

JAWS in 3D on IMAX

Originally released on June 20, 1975, Jaws, based on the best-selling novel by Peter Benchley, became the first true summer blockbuster and a cultural tsunami. It shattered every record to become the highest-grossing film of the year, earning a nomination for Best Picture and winning three Academy Awards®, including one for John Williams’ iconic musical score. Almost five decades later, Jaws has become inexorable from global film culture, has inspired multiple generations of filmmakers and remains one of the most thrilling, terrifying and unforgettable films of all time.

With Jurassic World Dominion, E.T. and JAWS playing on IMAX screens it will be a great summer to go watch some great Steven Spielberg brands at the movie theater!
