Ever since it was announced that “Alien” Franchise would be released on Blu-Ray, I was waiting to hear a date for the release. The most we got from that was Sigourney Weaver would be recording a commentary for the films. That in turn just added to my anticipation.
Now, the films have finally gotten a release of this Christmas.
Thanks to Blu-Ray.com:
“A recent promotional Blu-ray flyer from 20th Century Fox prominently features H.R.Giger’s creature jumping menacingly at the reader, atop the caption “Alien Anthology Coming to Blu-ray Christmas 2010.” The specific use of the word “Anthology” raises the possibility that this BD collection could include not only the “Quadrilogy” movies, but also Alien vs. Predator and Aliens vs. Predator Requiem.”
This is fucking great news. I love the “Alien” franchise, with the exception of “Alien Resurrection”. Even the poorly received AVP films were bad-ass.
This would definitely be the perfect Christmas present for me this year. If only the set didn’t come with “Alien Resurrection”, then I would be even more excited. But oh well, I’m already set on purchasing this anyway.
