In the summer of 1977, director Steven Spielberg astounded audiences with his seminal science fiction classic Close Encounters of The Third Kind. Sony Pictures has been working hard on a theatrical release of the film, their viral marketing campaign from earlier this year causing fans to believe a sequel was in the works instead.
Author Michael Klastorin has created a beautiful book about the making of Close Encounters, and thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get a sneak peak of the concents:
Klastorin’s beautiful book is available now on Amazon in both a hardcover edition and for the kindle.
Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.
Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).
Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.
Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
