Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 40th Anniversary 4K

Has anyone picked this up? I got the gift box that lights up, and was a little disappointed that apparently only the Director's Cut is remastered, if I'm reading the packaging correctly. I do like the box, though.

I've read reviews that said all of the cuts were remastered.

Re: Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 40th Anniversary 4K

Hi all, looking to maybe upgrade from the DVD set to either Blu or 4k but I want to have the book and foldout poster that the DVD set has. Were those brought over to either Blu or 4k releases?

Re: Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 40th Anniversary 4K

Thereís the 4K gift set that has a booklet, although I donít know if itís the same one as in previous releases. But the regular 4K release doesnít have anything to it, just the blu and 4K discs.

This is what the 4k collectors set looks like. Iím not sure what the third disc is, maybe the soundtrack. Someone else Iím sure can confirm.

Hmm, I just thought to look up that 4K set on eBay and the prices are kinda high, but the regular Blu is much cheaper and seems to have the book and poster. I may start watching for a used copy of that.

thanks

I just have the regular 4k, so I'm just missing the booklet, but I have it from previous releases. The 3 discs are pretty standard:

1) Feature 4k
2) Feature blu-ray
3) Extras blu-ray

btw, movie looks great in 4k.
