Aliens Expanded – A New Aliens Documentary Announced

A brand new Aliens documentary has been announced! CreatorVC have unveiled AliensExpanded.com and announced that it will be producing a documentary all about James Cameron’s Aliens with insight into its cinematic legacy. There will be commentary from cast, crew, and fans alike, and will explore the mythology of the iconic movie.

The Aliens Expanded documentary will feature scene-by-scene analysis driven by memories and stories. It will explore the themes, plot, characters, atmosphere, special effects and what impact James Cameron’s Aliens had on the world.

 Aliens Expanded - A New Aliens Documentary Announced

Prepare for dust off, folks. Exploring James Cameron’s epic from teeth to tail, Aliens Expanded will open up this beloved film like never before. Aliens is arguably – Hell, let’s just say it – the greatest sequel of all time; Aliens Expanded will be the ultimate celebration of exactly why.

It will go deep, right into the heart of the nest, to unearth the reason why we return to its embrace again and again. Every line on our lips. Every action beat a muscle memory. A genuine classic still as terrifying as the day we first joined the mission back to LV-426.

Much, much more than a making of. Way more ambitious than some video essay. Never before will such passion, wit, intellect, and pure worship be applied to a single film. 

CreatorVC are an independent global team of people who create documentaries about films they love from the 80’s. The documentaries are inspired and shaped by a dedicated community of fans. They previously produced In Search of the Last Action Heroes – a comprehensive retrospective of the 80’s action film genre.

Their second documentary was In Search of Darkness – an exploration of 80’s horror movies. They followed that up with Part 2 and are currently producing a third documentary in the series.

If you go to the website, you can view a teaser for the Aliens documentary. There doesn’t appear to be a release date for it yet. I believe, as well that their previous documentaries were crowd-funded on Kickstarter or Indiegogo so Aliens Expanded may follow a similar path.

    QuoteAliens Expanded will be the most passionate and detailed examination ever made of this much loved classic; an ultimate companion that will enhance your viewing experience with new insights and revelations.

    But to achieve something truly special, we're going to need your help...

    Our goal is to bring the entire Aliens fan community around this project, and then mine this collective hive mind for insights, questions, and unique viewpoints that will enhance our interviews with key cast and crew:

    What do you wish you knew about Aliens, but have never heard about?

    What incidental or not-so incidental plot point really interests you?

    How could we think differently about classic elements?

    �That process starts here, with this initial fan consultation. Below, we've provided the first details about how we're thinking about making this documentary, including a synopsis, and we want your input.

    With the announcement of the creative team behind Aliens Expanded, we now know that Ian Nathan will helming Aliens Expanded. Nathan is well regarded amongst the film journalist community as not only a former editor and executive editor of the Empire magazine, but also as the author of Alien Vault and Ridley Scott: A Retrospective, and the upcoming James Cameron: A Retrospective.

    On the Aliens Expanded website is a synopsis of the intent behind the documentary, an example of how scenes from Aliens would be explored and an emphasize on how much the production team at CreatorVC wants to involve the fandom in shaping Aliens Expanded. You will also find a survey on the website that invites the fandom to share their thoughts on the intent of Aliens Expanded, and also to share their own experiences. Be sure to head on over and make your voice heard! You have all of July to get involved.

    Interesting. It'll be hard to match/top what Charles de Lauzirika and J.W. Rinzler have already done, but if they're able to score some new interviews with the cast and crew and can get some informative new answers out of them, I'll be all over that for sure.
