New Details On Alien Anthology Blu-Ray
It was reported back in February that the Alien franchise would be released onto Blu-ray in a package tilted “Alien Anthology”. Now new details have emerged on Blu-Ray.com about the upcoming release:
“German site Bluray-disc.de has received an advance review copy of Minority Report (which is distributed in Europe by 20th Century Fox) to find that it opens with a short teaser for the upcoming Blu-ray edition of the Alien Anthology. After the extended tagline “In space no one can hear you scream – but on Blu-ray they can,” it is revealed that the Anthology will consist of the movies Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.”Blade Runner. De Lauzirika said that, while the Quadrilogy DVD was already very comprehensive, this Anthology Blu-ray set will blow it out of the water, with new extras and commentaries. Also, a new sound mix has been done for the extended edition of Alien 3, which involved bringing back some of the cast to reloop their dialogue.”
Additionally, according to the print edition of the UK movie magazine Empire, this release is being produced by Charles De Lauzirika. He’s the one behind the BD releases of most of the movies directed by Ridley Scott, including the monumental five-discs.
I really don’t think I can be anymore excited about this release than I already am. We get all the Alien films, and an audio commentary from the “Queen of Sci-fi” herself, Sigourney Weaver for each one. I am a little disappointed that the Alien vs. Predator films aren’t included in the packaging. I still enjoyed the films a lot despite their poor reception, but I can live without them.
