BNIB, honest

Not so long ago, we reported on the news that film director Zak Penn had successfully unearthed the now-legendary Atari 2600 E.T. cartridges which were buried in the New Mexico desert back in the '80s.

Penn has produced a documentary regarding the game, its development, how it sank the games industry and its subsequent rediscovery, and you can watch the trailer below. The film is one of the few projects to survive the closure of Xbox Entertainment Studios, and will be shown first on Xbox 360, Xbox One and later this year.
