Thirty is a tricky birthday for anyone - your twenties are in the rear-view mirror, and your forties start to sneak up (can you tell this writer is getting closer to the magic 3-0?...). But it's also the point at which you can reach a certain respectability, start to push towards (whisper it) adulthood, and make it clear that you're here to stay. All of which is a long-winded and possibly over-sharing way of saying that thirty years ago today, on June 11, 1982, "E.T: The Extra Terrestrial" was released in theaters.

It’s taken a few years but Steven Spielberg’s classic ”E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” is finally getting a high-def upgrade. The 30th anniversary edition of the film, which hits stores this October, will feature an all-new digitally remastered transfer of the original 1982 theatrical cut. That’s right kids, the much-maligned 20th anniversary 2002 reissue won’t be making appearance on the disc other than in the form of two deleted scenes, so you don’t need to worry about seeing any walkie-talkies.
