I challenge you not to cry at Henry Thomas’s screen test for E.T.

I already cry like a little bitch every time I watch E. T. (which I’m pretty sure stands for “Extra Tissues”). I feel no shame in admitting that. Now, thanks to this recently-surfaced clip of Henry Thomas’s screen test for the role of Elliott, I will now also cry like a little bitch every time I watch the Blu-Ray’s special features.


Phew, that was heartbreaking stuff. I need a palate cleanser:


The 30th Anniversary edition of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was released on Blu-Ray October 9th and is packed with every E.T.-related special feature you could possibly want–except perhaps an audio track with Michael Jackson narrating the movie. That edition only exists in my dreams.

[Thanks Hey U Guys!]
