To commemorate “Alien Day” on April 26th – as in LV-426, the planet that held the derelict spaceship with all the facehugger eggs – 20th Century Fox has announced that they will be bringing Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic sci-fi/horror film Alien to select Regal RPX Theaters. Starring Sigourney Weaver and John Hurt, the movie spawned several sequels, a couple of spin-offs, and now has a couple of prequels under its belt. Tickets for the event will go on sale tomorrow on Regal’s website.
In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma. When he awakens, the terror begins and the crew must fight for their very survival.
