Hot off his huge success directing JAWS for Universal Studios, director Steven Spielberg tackled science fiction with his next film: ‘Close Encounters Of The Third Kind’.
The movie is one of my all-time favorites and for good reason(s).
A brilliant script, stellar acting, spectacular visual and practical effects and a compelling sense of wonder made the film a huge hit and endeared itself to millions of movie-goers and is a considered a movie masterpiece and classic even today.
It, along with the Star Wars franchise, refashioned and revitalized the sci-fi film genre and helped define the ‘blockbuster’ phenomenon.
Harper Design proudly presents its deluxe, hardbound book commemorating the classic film with its ‘Close Encounters Of The Third Kind: The Ultimate Visual History’.
If you’re a fan of the film or sci-fi films in general then this book is sure to satiate your behind-the-scenes appetite.
Inside the impressive book are special, tipped-in ‘extras’ full-color, two page spreads, photographs, artwork and much more describing and chronicling the film.
