Rejected Pitches: E.T.


AboveAverage has a pretty funny new YouTube series out about what it might be like if classic films were re-pitched to today’s jackass Hollywood executives. Above, we have Steven Spielberg attempting to sell E.T., but they refuse to get past the idea that the alien is a good guy.

If I explain it any more, it’ll ruin the joke, so just watch for yourself. A second rejected pitch for Stanley Kubrick and The Shining is actually below as well, so you can check that out when you’re done.
