Back in 1979, director Ridley Scott taught movie audiences everywhere that, in space, no one can hear you scream! Now, 35 years later, 20th Century Fox is bringing the sci-fi/horror classic home once again with the 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray of Alien. Read on for the full press release.
From 20th Century Fox
A word of warning…. This Halloween revisit one of the scariest films of all-time as ALIEN: 35TH Anniversary Edition arrives on Blu-ray October 7 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. This Limited-Edition Set includes both the theatrical version and director’s cut on Blu-ray, along with audio commentaries, deleted scenes and more — PLUS — a reprint of the original Alien illustrated comic and all-new, collectible art cards as a tribute to the late H.R. Giger, creator of the iconic movie monster that started it all.
When the crew of the space-tug Nostromo responds to a distress signal from a barren planet, they discover a mysterious life form that breeds within human hosts. The acid-blooded extraterrestrial proves to be the ultimate adversary as crew members battle to stay alive and prevent the deadly creature from reaching Earth. Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Sigourney Weaver in her breakout performance as Ripley, this legendary first film in the ALIEN saga will leave you breathless!
