The Alien – Out of the Shadows audiobook will be coming out Alien Day. Yesterday Fox announced all sorts of new goodies in their Alien Day press release including an audiobook of Titan’s Alien – Out of the Shadows. The original novel by Tim Lebbon was released in 2014 (you can read our review of it here) and the new audiobook version of Alien – Out of the Shadows is due for release on April 26th.

Thanks to the good people over at Movie Buzzers we have our first sneak peek (sneek listen?) at what’s in store for us!

“Alien: Out of the Shadows is set in the 57 years between the original classic sci-fi films, 1979’s Alien and 1986’s Aliens and features the vocal talent of Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner and Batman Begins), Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter film series), Corey Johnson (The Bourne Ultimatum, Kingsman),Kathryn Drysdale, Laurel Lefkow, and Andrea Deck. It is directed by Dirk Maggs (radio series of Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) and based on the original novel by award-winning author Tim Lebbon.”

You should recognize the name Andrea Deck as the voice of Amanda Ripley from Alien: Isolation. She will be providing the voice of her character’s mother for the Alien – Out of the Shadows audiobook. Science-fiction fans will also recognize the name Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty from Sir Ridley Scott’s other well-known sci-fi classic, Blade Runner.

Rather than a traditional audiobook like the recently released Alien film novelizations, the Maggs’ directed Out of the Shadows is taking a multi-cast approach, giving it an almost audio-play quality to it.

The Alien – Out of the Shadows audiobook is available to pre-order over at Amazon now.

Yeah, that description didn't sound correct to me either but that's what everything is calling it.  :-\

Damn, that's actually pretty impressive when you compare it to the novelization audiobooks. With sound effects and everything. I wish they'd do that with all the novels. I used to listen to 'We're Alive' - the zombie podcast series and that was dramatised like this as well.

I believe they're using the Isolation sound effects. I'm loving it. I listen to various audio dramas myself (the Big Finish Stargate ones and a Star Trek fan production called Star Trek Excelsior) and I've been thinking it'd be nice to have one for Aliens for sometime.

I love the sound effects in the background. Usually I can't stand audiobooks as I prefer to read the book myself. But this is an exception, I like that it has different voice actors and sounds. I never listened to an audio drama before, only to some audiobooks on youtube, so this was a good taste of it.

This sounds more like listening to an audio recording you find in a video game or something. I will be purchasing now for sure!

Check out the new logo.  It looks somewhat like the PROMETHEUS logo.  I would expect that this logo will be the new look of ALIEN.  So probably many things to come out for 4-26 may have this logo.
