On Friday the 29th of March Alien: Containment, the first of six Alien: 40th Anniversary Shorts, will be dropping online via IGN. And 20th Century Fox have released a teaser trailer for the upcoming short film!
“Four survivors find themselves stranded aboard a small escape pod in deep space. Trying to piece together the details around the outbreak that led to their ship’s destruction, they find themselves unsure to trust whether or not one of them might be infected.”
Fox and IGN will be releasing a new Alien: 40th Anniversary Short each Friday, up until Alien Day on the 26th of April. Alien: Containment was written and directed by Chris Reading. And our own community member The Old One also contributed towards the project with some storyboarding!
Yesterday 20th Century Fox also hosted a special screening of all 6 shorts for various members of the geek and Alien fandom, including Alien vs. Predator Galaxy, the Perfect Organism Podcast and HN Entertainment. Our own RidgeTop was there and had the following to say:

The new @AlienAnthology shorts overall? Solid. Really illustrated the potential of the universe. Some seriously impressive work for the budgets that the teams were given to work with. #Alien40th pic.twitter.com/Dx5isQI3tK
