Cocoon -- The original theatrical trailer to COCOON posted in support of the UK Blu-ray release of COCOON.

Director Ron Howard followed up the huge success of Splash with this light-hearted science-fiction tale about a group of elderly friends who find their youth returning after encountering a benevolent Alien species living next door to their retirement home. 
Bucking the trend of extravagant special effects targeted at a teenage audience, Cocoon with its senior cast and more personal focus was a huge success, picking up two Academy Awards (Best Supporting Actor & Best Visual Effects), and remains one of the most memorable and heart-warming films of the Eighties. Eureka Entertainment are proud to present Cocoon in this Special Thirtieth Anniversary Edition Blu-ray.

Joseph Finley: Bernie, if you don't wanna do this for Rose and you don't wanna do this for yourself that's fine, that's your business, but if you screw this up for the rest of us...
Bernard Lefkowitz: Don't threaten me, Joe, I don't need any of your threats. We're not doing it and that's final!
