Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is also releasing a new Aliens 30th anniversary Blu-ray and Digital HD edition on Sept. 13, which will feature a new interview with Cameron on the design and inspiration of the film.

Pre-orders will be taken at Fox’s Comic-Con booth, and the first 250 will get a lithograph image of Ripley locked in mortal combat with the Alien Queen.

The anniversary release will include both the original theatrical cut and the special edition, which features more about the past and child Ripley left behind — and lost forever. It will also come with a commentary track, and previously released deleted and extended scenes.

The Blu-ray set will come with collectible art cards featuring concept sketches by Cameron and a book featuring art from the Dark Horse Comics Aliens series.

A rather worthless new extra, throwaway picture cards, and a lazy slipcase over what was already an uninspiring cover. Nah.

Steelbook UK release: http://www.zavvi.com/blu-ray/aliens-30th-anniversary-zavvi-exclusive-steelbook/11322424.html





Underwhelming cover art. I do hate when they put the monster on the cover; when I first saw Aliens I had no idea about the Queen, and that was a great surprise (the Alien on Aliens' VHS tape was kind of oblique). They did the same thing on the Predator bluray - showing the Predator's face. I hated that.

Without new bonus materials included,these reissues are worthless-unless you somehow managed to miss purchasing any of the previous releases.
Obviously aimed at the collector;perhaps a steel book for A3 and AR's upcoming 25th and 20th anniversaries respectively,too?

I like the packaging, but it's a shame they haven't really done anything new on the disc itself.

One new interview with Cameron apparently.

Tempted to get it though as that booklet & prints look sweet.

So I think it already expired... But earlier today, Amazon was offering a preorder for this edition of the aliens Blu Ray for just under $10. I couldn't resist; I already own aliens on blue ray twice, but for under $10 and with those extras I decided to pick it up anyway! Now I can't wait for the release date.

Release is almost here!

I have to admit I'm pretty excited to get my copy of this, even if it is my 7th copy of the movie! Lol (I'm counting everything all the way back to vhs and digital formats)
