Close Encounters Of The Third Kind 40th re-release trailer

5 July 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Jul 6, 2017

Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters Of The Third Kind turns 40 this year. And it's heading back to cinemas...

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind arrived on the scene as an existential alien encounter enlightenment for its characters and – especially during the buildup to its November 1977 release – a new marketing showcase for blockbuster movies, with a release built upon cryptic teases. Appropriately, with the film’s 40th anniversary approaching, a teaser trailer for its re-release proves to be as cryptic as the buildup to its original release.

Video of This Means Something

Called “This Means Something,” referencing the famous scene in which Richard Dreyfuss’s Roy Neary turns his mashed potatoes into an impromptu rendition of his portentous alien-inspired vision of Wyoming’s Devils Tower, the Close Encounters Of The Third Kind 40th teaser trailer poses familiar questions about the unexplained mysterious findings of air traffic control, cutting »

“This Means Something” – Sony release a Close Encounters of the Third Kind teaser

5 July 2017 6:37 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The 4th of July, Independence Day holiday of our international cousins saw the start of a rather clever campaign for the re-release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind on what will be its 40th anniversary year. To start that campaign Sony released a teaser trailer which you can view below.

However, no actual footage from the film is featured in the teaser, which is aptly named This Means Something. Instead, we witness 56 seconds of air traffic control radar animation locating an unidentified flying object targeting one of its planes with audio of air traffic control in a mild panic.

To accompany the teaser for the re-release of the film which will have a one-week theatrical viewing slot in September, two months before its actual anniversary, Sony have set up a special website – WeAreStillNotAlone.Com – which takes you to a holding page prompting you to enter your »

Sony released a brand new teaser for “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” over the long, 4th of July weekend, prompting reboot and re-release speculation. A new website referencing the 1977 original has also popped up to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the science fiction film.

A video entitled “This Means Something” was uploaded to the Sony Pictures Entertainment YouTube page on Monday, which just so happened to be World UFO Day. The video features an air traffic control radar animation locating an unidentified flying object targeting one of its planes.

While many fans expected the clip to be an unofficial announcement of a “Close Encounters” reboot or sequel, the studio actually intends to re-release the film theatrically for a week this September, Variety can confirm.

"I don't like to brag, but I like everyone to know about it," laughs the 69-year-old. "Sooner or later, I know they are all going to go to the refrigerator."
