From SFX: Alien Anthology Overview

With the 30th anniversary of Alien rolling round just last year, and the 25th anniversary of Aliens sneaking up faster than a Facehugger in search of a gob, there could be no better time to celebrate the seminal science fiction saga.

To mark the occasion Twentieth Century Fox have applied all the bells and whistles… and then some to the Alien Anthology, released on Blu-ray 25 October. Earlier this week SFX was invited to take a sneak peek at what to expect from the Anthology – and we can tell you a new name isn’t the only thing that’s changed (though we are gutted “Quadrilogy” never caught on).

As well as shiny new transfers (including a colour-corrected, de-grained and Cameron approved Aliens that looks better than it even did on the big screen), the unflinching Alien 3 documentary is presented with 30 minutes of previously cut footage (including an onset Fincher outburst). . . www.sfx.co.uk
