Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment UK will debut the Alien Anthology on Blu-ray for the first time ever on October 25 in the UK and October 26 in the U.S.!

All four Alien films have been reinvigorated. The release also marks the debut of MU-TH-UR Mode, a fully interactive companion that takes the extensive materials in the Alien Anthology and puts them in the user’s hand – connecting fans to special features on all six discs and instantly providing an index of all available Alien content, including over 60 hours of special features and over 12,000 images.

Alien Anthology will also be available in a Limited Edition Collector’s Set featuring ‘The Guardian’ – an exclusive illuminated egg statue sculpted by Sideshow Collectibles.
