I heard a few weeks ago that FOX was finally going to release “Alien” and “Aliens” on Blu-Ray. Unfortunately, “Alien 3” and “Alien Resurrection” will be released as well. But, no release date has been set other than next year.
During an interview for the Los Angeles Times to promote “Avatar”, Sigourney Weaver said that she will record a commentary track for the Blu-Ray release of “Alien”.
Thanks to Blu-Ray.com for the news:
“I’ve never done that, watched all of [the Alien movies] in a row,” Weaver said. “I just recently made my [19-year-old] daughter watch them. She had never seen them before, believe it or not. I think she just prefers to think of me as good ol’ mom, you know, not some person running around a spaceship with a flamethrower.”
I’m very excited that “Alien” will be getting a Blu-Ray release. Not only is it one of the greatest films of all time, but we will also get a commentary from the “Queen of Sci-Fi” herself.
I’m also glad because the DVD releases have so much grain on them, and hopefully that will be fixed in this release. And as far as I know the films will be released all in one pack. But, hopefully they will be released individually so I don’t taint my collection with “Alien Resurrection”.
Are you excited for the Blu-Ray release of “Alien”?
