Aliens 30th Anniversary Blu-ray Set Coming in September

Massive Aliens 30th Anniversary Blu-ray comes stacked with special features

The trailblazing “haunted house in space” sci-fi horror masterpiece that is Ridley Scott’s 1979 shocker Alien would have been a daunting act to follow for any filmmaker. But director James Cameron, hot off the success of his 1984 hit The Terminator, did just that, opting to not imitate the original for his sequel, 1986’s Aliens, but instead building upon it, deepening the mythology and taking the story in new, exciting directions.

Aliens is the ultimate monster war flick and it firmly locked the great Sigourney Weaver’s reputation as the greatest female ass-kicker in genre film history.
