Remember when we told you earlier this year that to celebrate the landmark 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott's genre-defining film Alien, and that we were getting a crop of short films released on LV-426? That day has some, fans of Ellen Ripely, that day has come.
The sixth and final of the 6 short films released by FOX via IGN is called Alone, and was written and directed by Noah Miller.
"Hope, an abandoned crew member aboard the derelict chemical hauler Otranto, has spent a year trying to keep her ship and herself alive as both slowly fall apart. After discovering hidden cargo, she risks it all to power up the broken ship in search of human life."
All 6 of the short films were screened early during some notable March conventions, and the final two will release today via IGN's Youtube channel.
A brand-new 40th anniversary 4K Blu-ray of the first film was released just in time for today as well. And, perhaps our favorite thing- that New Jersey High School will be doing one encore performance of their stage presentation of Alien (with a little blessing from both Scott and Sigourney Weaver), courtesy of a donation from Scott Free Productions.
