About the Movie

The hunt is on to find 3.5 million unsold copies of the E.T The Extra-Terrestrial video game, reputed to have been the cause of Atari’s downfall in 1984. 'Atari: Game Over' explores the popular urban legend known as “The Great Video Game Burial of 1983”. As the story goes, Atari Corporation, faced with an overwhelmingly negative response to the E.T. video game, disposed of millions of unsold game cartridges by burying them in the small town of Alamogordo, New Mexico. For decades the myth of Atari and these E.T. cartridges was whispered about amongst game fans everywhere. Director Zak Penn and his team head to the landfill where the video games were supposedly buried to uncover the truth behind the legend.

A poetic, hysterical, intellectual and humanistic dive into coming to terms with failure following the euphoric bliss of stratospheric success.
