Original E.T. artwork headed to auction block



E.T. fans, phone … well, I guess phone the action house because the original artwork that evolved into the movie house poster for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is up for sale.

TMZ reports that the painting by artist John Alvin will be auctioned off by Heritage Auctions on Oct. 12. Word has it that it could go for as much as $150,000.

Where has the painting been all this time? Since the movie’s 1982 theatrical release, it’s been hanging on the home office wall of Bob Bendetson, a Hollywood producer who has written for ALF, The Simpsons and The Jeffersons.

If $150k is too rich for your blood, you can buy a print of the movie poster for about $20 on
