ALIEN 40th Anniversary Edition Coming to 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray

Alien 40th AnniversaryHard to believe that it has been forty years since we realized that in space no once can hear you scream.

But it indeed has been four decades since the terrifying sci-fi adventure, ALIEN hit big screens. And to celebrate the occasion, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment are releasing an all-new 4K Ultra HD™ master of the film that will be available on April 23.

In addition, a limited edition 4K UHD™ steelbook of ALIEN 40th Anniversary Edition will also be available exclusively at Best Buy.

 

"In the film that birthed the wildly successful ALIEN franchise, the crew of the deep space tug Nostromo awaken from stasis during a voyage home to Earth when their ship’s computer detects what is believed to be an alien distress signal coming from the desolate nearby moon, LV-426. While investigating, one of the crew, Kane (John Hurt), is attacked by an alien creature that latches to his face and he is rushed back to the Nostromo to receive medical treatment. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), the ship’s warrant officer, advises against Kane’s return due to quarantine regulations - but her orders are ignored by Ash (Ian Holm), bringing the Nostromo under threat from a mysterious, extraterrestrial apex predator with violent and lethal survival instincts."


The film was restored in 4K in 2018 by 20th Century Fox at Company 3/Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, supervised by Ridley Scott and Pam Dery, with the 4K scans were done at EFilm. And this 40th Anniversary Edition will include the brand new scan as well as the following bonus materials:
