Seems to be a good price, this is the cheapest its ever been. contains the latest alien film too. Seems to be Amazons deal of the day, so probably going to be available for the next 15 hours or so.

---------------------
ll six films in the 'Alien' franchise. In Ridley Scott's 'Alien' (1979) the crew of the Nostromo starship are on their way back to Earth after completing a mission when they are diverted to a planetoid to investigate a cryptic message. While exploring an abandoned spacecraft on the planet, they come across a store of unhatched eggs. When one of the eggs releases a mysterious creature that leeches on to a crew member's face, the others bring him back on board to recover from the ordeal.

Little do they know that they have also brought on board an alien lifeform that will kill anyone or anything that gets in its way. In James Cameron's sequel, 'Aliens' (1986), sole survivor from the Nostromo Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) awakens after 57 years in stasis, and with a team of Space Marines in tow she returns to the planetoid now named LV-426 to investigate the loss of contact with the terraforming colony in residence. In David Fincher's dark 'Alien 3' (1992), Ripley crash lands on an old prison planet used to house convicted murderers - but she's not alone.

When Ripley discovers her body is being used to carry an alien queen she faces a difficult decision to save humanity and sacrifice herself. In Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 'Alien Resurrection' (1997), 200 years after Ripley died bearing the alien queen, a group of scientists successfully produce clones of both her and the alien. The United States Military, hoping to use the queen to breed aliens to study, fail to keep the clones locked up and they escape.

It is not long before the new Ripley is forced to team up with a gang of smugglers to repel the alien clones that are set on destroying life on Earth. In 'Prometheus' (2012) Scott returns to direct a new cast of Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce.

After finding fragments of alien DNA, a team of scientists known as The Company travel into space aboard the state-of-the-art Prometheus spacecraft to investigate the origins of human life on Earth. Their journey takes them into the darkest corners of the universe - but, to their horror, their inquisitive nature ends up posing a threat to the future existence of humankind.

The scientists now find themselves tested to their mental and physical limits as they fight a desperate battle to preserve the future of the human race. Finally, in 'Alien: Covenant' (2017), set as a sequel to 'Prometheus' (2012), the crew of the Covenant discover a planet they believe to be paradise, but when they actually start to investigate they find a dark and dangerous world inhabited by a colony of creatures who are less than pleased to see them.

Also comes with digital codes for all 6 which can be redeemed on Google Play - including Covenant.

Great price for two great films, lots of extras too! Four of the extra disks have "feature length" films on them!

Heat from me. I may be in the minority but I also liked prometheus and covenant so plenty for me in this deal with just two coasters.

Hmm, interested in this a little bit, but not sure what cut of both Alien and Aliens is on there, or any special features. Whilst looking, I did notice the Anthology 1-4 Blu-Ray boxset is 14.99 (so this 1-6 is great value), but I think with the extras on the 1-4 Anthology, I'm going for that. Plus I can conveniently forget that Prometheus and Covenant exist.

Heat anyway.

Same, I really enjoyed both.

Cold. No AvP 1&2.

Part 4 was so bad I refuse to buy the boxset. If you don't mind that then good deal.

All editions are included in regards to Alien and Aliens. Full box set details - dvdcompare.net/com…880

It's hard to believe, but there once was a time when Alien films were expensive to buy! Who remembers the Alien Quadrilogy set being £50? On DVD!

Although the compare data was last updated in Feb 2016 I think, and this boxset was released this year.

Can all uv be redeemed on google play?

Shame it doesn't look as nice as the Anthology Boxset I already own or i would consider selling that and getting this!

Only if the film was made by Fox (X-Men films and Independence Day etc).

There was a way to link your UV library with Disneys Movies Anywhere service, which then made the movies available in Google Play, however it is a US service at the moment and you needed to mess about with VPNs to get it working. Once paired you could unlink and the Google Play movies were to keep

EDIT - This was the Movies Anywhere deal - not sure if you still get the 5 free movies:

I remember! I bought the original releases on DVD and then the Quadrilogy which had the alternative cuts and loads of special features, and then I bought similar 1-4 box set on Blu-Ray when that came out. Now waiting for a 1-4 box set of the films in 4K so I can buy them yet again

I remember it being more like £80 when it first came out (can't find any proof of that, apart from a 2003 US review that says it was $100, which sounds about right). I was chuffed when I managed to find it for £10 somewhere in 2004 or 2005 because it was still £50 everywhere - and it had a great slipcase originally, where the egg on the front had a bobbly texture, which they didn't bother with on later reprints.

But of course now I have the Blu-Ray 'Anthology' collection, which cost nowhere near as much and all the transfers in it are excellent, plus it still has all the special features from the Quadrilogy.
