Close Encounters of the Third Kind .. in 2017?

UPDATED: ”Sony confirms the film will be back on the big screen in the U.S. and Canada for one week starting September 1.” - reported io9.

This means something.
This is important.

Is Sony doing a remake of “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”? The above teaser had just been released, along with a website at - which prompts you to ”SIGN UP TO RECEIVE UPDATES ON UFO SIGHTINGS” … or as had queried on whether it’s ”a remake, a sequel or a theatrical rerelease of the original…” … the closing tune played ensures it IS linked somehow to the original 1977-film - who IS celebrating their 40th Anniversary, innit?

Or maybe it’s just a celebration of #WorldUFODay (on Sunday, July 2nd … yes, there is such a day) … Go #HugAnAlien why doncha? LOL
