The original: 

E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982)

Directed by: 

Steven Spielberg (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, War of the Worlds, Ready Player One)


Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace, Robert MacNaughton, Drew Barrymore, Peter Coyote

The story of the profound friendship between Elliot, a ten year old boy, and a stranded alien, who Elliot and his siblings dub E.T.


Filled with more iconic imagery than most film makers dream of in a lifetime, Spielberg’s film is a full on adventure, comedy, drama, horror and love story, featuring deft performances from the entire cast, with stand-outs from Henry Thomas as Elliot and an astonishing Drew Barrymore as his six year old sister, Gertie.


Capturing the feeling, language and isolation of being a child like nothing else, E.T. is a joyous, terrifying and hilarious look into life seen from waist height.


The film soars like a bike ride over tree-tops, emotionally palpable and mentally wise- the film imparting life lessons throughout, such as there’s nothing stronger than the bond of friends, and saving frogs will get the girl.


Where as E.T. the alien may just stay for a few days, E.T. the film will stay with you forever.


E.T.: “E.T. home phone.”

Mary: “All we're trying to say is, maybe you just probably imagined it.”

Elliot: “I couldn’t have imagined it!”

Michael: “Maybe it was a pervert or a deformed kid or something.”

Gertie: “A deformed kid.”

Michael: “Maybe an elf or a leprechaun!”

Elliot: “It was nothing like that, penis-breath!”

Elliot: “He's a man from outer space and we're taking him to his spaceship.”

Greg: “Well, can’t he just beam up?”

Elliot: “This is reality, Greg.”

The pitch: "Come up with a sequel to the 1982 classic."
