Think you know everything there is to know about the original Alien? You probably don't know as much as Al Hope, the creative director working on Playstation's Alien: Isolation video game (launching in October), who has seen the film over 100 times. Most of this was for research, but he was already a fan before it became his job to scrutinize the source material.
Venture Beat sat down with Hope for one such viewing, during which he recorded an audio commentary with all his thoughts on everything from set design, characters, plot, special effects, etc. as well as how it will all come into play in his new game.
