E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, the classic 1982 Steven Spielberg (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) science fiction (sci-fi) alien family fantasy melodrama ("His Adventure on Earth"; "He is afraid. He is totally alone. He is 3,000,000 light years from home."; "The mystery. The suspense. The adventure. The call... that started it all."; "Written by Melissa Mathison"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Dee Wallace, Peter Coyote, Henry Thomas ("as Elliott"), Drew Barrymore (in her second movie role!), and Robert MacNaughton

Artist: B.D. Fox and Friends Inc
Important Added Info: Note that when this movie was first released, some 27" x 41" posters with the bike over the moon image were created and were personally distributed by Steven Spielberg only and are virtually impossible to find. Shortly after those were made, the studio created the 26 3/4" x 40 1/2" bike over the moon posters for the first regular release, and that is the poster we are offering here (and this style of poster is indeed difficult to find, much more difficult than the other styles created for this movie). Please bid knowing that this is the original 26 3/4" x 40 1/2" first general theatrical poster, but that it is NOT from the small run of posters personally distributed by Spielberg prior to these being printed! Please also note that that we know that there are many reproductions of this poster, and one of the ways to tell if it is an original is by the measurements. We want bidders to know that this poster is 100% original! For those who know the exact measurements of the original, know that we carefully measured the poster and confirm that it measures exactly 26 3/4" x 40 1/2" (reproductions are smaller), and that the top blank border measures 13/16" and that the bottom blank border measures 3/4", and that the left and right borders are 7/8". Please bid with confidence that this poster is 100% the original theatrical poster from 1982!

Condition: good to very good. There are small vertical creases and scuff marks down the poster left of center, including one in the area of the basket on Elliot's bike at upper left (it appears at some time the poster was slightly bent while it was rolled). The poster is otherwise in nice condition and it displays well from a reasonable viewing distance and I'm sure most collectors could quite happily display this poster as it is, but if one chose to have it linenbacked it would look fantastic!
