Get ready for tactical squad-based action in the recently announced Aliens: Dark Descent, featuring an original storyline, experiences and more. Coming in 2023 to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
The celebration of Aliens 35th Anniversary starts today. With all-new toys, exclusive collectibles, and more, including a special collection launching this summer at GameStop, there are so many reasons to scream for joy this #AlienDay.
Alien is currently in development at @FXNetworks. The first TV series based on the classic film series is helmed by Fargo and Legion's @noahhawley. Expect a scary thrill ride set not too far in the future here on Earth.
Happy birthday to Carrie Henn, who says her favorite scene to shoot as Newt was actually one of the scariest in Aliens: When an alien rises out of the water to grab her. Henn says she would splash around with the alien in between takes!
Happy birthday to Lance Henriksen, who decided to play the synthetic Bishop in Aliens as gentle and childlike. “I felt that he was only 10 years old, mechanically, so I gave him the emotional life of a 14-year-old,” Henriksen is quoted as saying.
In addition to never having appeared in pre-release marketing, the Xenomorph doesn't make its first appearance until more than an hour into the original film. The combination increased both suspense and terror and helped make Alien the Sci-Fi/Horror legacy it is today.
Happy birthday to Veronica Cartwright, who played Lambert in Alien. Contrary to popular belief, Cartwright had an idea of what was going to happen in the Chestburster scene — she just didn't know there'd be so much blood! Her reaction is genuine, and it was the one and only take!
A big happy birthday to Ron Perlman, who played Johner in Alien: Resurrection. According to Perlman, he was so happy when Sigourney sunk her famous backwards basketball shot that he almost ruined the entire scene by celebrating too much.
