CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND: THE SPECIAL EDITION

£99.50

Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1980 Steven Spielberg Sci-Fi Movie CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND: THE SPECIAL EDITION starring Richard Dreyfuss, Melinda Dillon, Teri Garr, Fran├žois Truffaut and Cary Guffey.

In 1979, Columbia gave Spielberg $1.5 million to produce what became the “Special Edition” of the film. Spielberg added seven minutes of new footage, but also deleted or shortened various existing scenes by ten minutes, so that the Special Edition was three minutes shorter than the original 1977 release, running 132 minutes. The Special Edition featured several new character development scenes, the discovery of the SS Cotopaxi in the Gobi Desert, and a view of the inside of the mothership. Close Encounters of the Third Kind: The Special Edition was released in August 1980, making a further $15.7 million, accumulating a final $303.7 million box office gross.

The poster is in very good folded condition with minor corner pinhole wear
