The ‘Alien Anthology’ to debut on Blu-Ray in October
HollywoodNews.com: Sometimes, the scariest things come from within. The “Alien Anthology” will debut on Blu-ray for the first time ever from October 25 internationally and on October 26 in North America. All four “Alien” films have been reinvigorated for an intense Blu-ray high-definition viewing experience. The release also marks the debut of MU-TH-UR Mode, a fully interactive companion that takes the extensive materials in the “Alien Anthology” and puts them in the user’s hand – connecting fans to special features on all six discs and instantly providing an index of all available ALIEN content, including over 60 hours of special features and over 12,000 images.
The “Alien Anthology” is a truly unique home entertainment experience. For the first time ever, the studio has united the material from every home video release of the “Alien” saga including the 1991/1992 laserdisc releases, the 1999 “Legacy” release and 2003’s groundbreaking “Alien Quadrilogy” release into one complete Blu-ray collection. The set also includes two versions of each film and over four hours of previously unreleased exclusive material such as original screen-tests of Sigourney Weaver prior to filming the original “Alien,” unseen deleted scenes, thousands of still photographs from the Fox archives, the previously unseen original cut of “Wreckage and Rage: The Making of ‘Alien3’,” and much, much more.
The “Alien Anthology” will be available for a suggested retail price of $139.99 U.S. / $179.99 Canada. Prebook is September 22.
The “Alien Anthology” is just one aspect of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s yearlong campaign to honor the studio’s 75th birthday. This year the division will debut several select fan-favorites on Blu-ray for the first time ever including The Rocky Horror Picture Show, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, The Last of the Mohicans[i] and The Sound of Music.
