Synopsis
This nine DVD boxset contains all 4 films in the ALIEN saga: ALIEN, ALIENS, ALIEN 3 and ALIEN RESURRECTION along with just about every extra any fan of the ALIEN series could ever want;
ALIEN:
Recognised as a classic of both horror and science-fiction. Starring Sigourney Weaver as warrant officer Ellen Ripley, ALIEN focuses on the crew of the space cargo ship Nostromo, which lands on a moribund planet in response to a faint SOS. Inside a crashed ship, the crew members come upon strange pods, one of which spews forth a repellently fleshy insectile creature that locks on to the face of the unlucky Kane (John Hurt). Despite Ripley's advice, science officer Ash (Ian Holm) allows Kane to return to the ship, where the creature finally releases its grip. Soon, however, in one of the film's most infamous scenes, one of its offspring explodes horribly from Kane's stomach and scurries away. Dallas (Tom Skerritt), the vessel's captain, leads the others in a search for the rapidly growing, acid-dripping alien before it can cut them down one by one.
ALIEN is available on this box set in both the original and new Directors Cut editions.
ALIENS:
Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), the sole survivor from the first film, is awakened after 57 years of drifting through space, her stories disbelieved by Company executives who tell her that the alien's planet is now inhabited and colonized. When contact is suddenly lost with the colonists, Ripley returns to the planet with a squad of marines, an android (Lance Henriksen), and a Company executive (Paul Reiser) with a mission of his own. Once on the planet, no survivors can be found except for Newt, a little girl who awakens motherly instincts in Ripley just in time for the acid-blooded aliens to attack in what quickly becomes a one-sided battle for sheer survival. Considered by many to be the best of the series, ALIENS is a fast-paced, high-intensity thrill ride that set a new standard for action films and cemented director James Cameron's status as one of Hollywood's leading directors.
ALIENS is available on this sbox et in both the original and Special Edition editions.
ALIEN 3:
Directed by David Fincher; ALIEN 3 picks up almost directly after the events in ALIENS, finding Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) frozen in suspended animation as her ship crashes on Fiorina 161, a prison planet. When awakened by the prison's staff, she discovers that she is the sole survivor of her crew. Trapped on a barren planet with convicts and no weapons of any kind, Ripley soon realizes that an alien was also on the ship and has survived. As the savage creature begins to massacre inmates, Ripley bands together with the remaining prisoners and attempts to destroy it by wits alone.
ALIEN 3 is available on this box set as both the original edition and in a version based upon the Director's original cut.
ALIEN RESURRECTION:
In the last part of this saga, a drop of Ellen Ripley's (Sigourney Weaver) blood spawns a part human, part alien Ripley clone. Now that Ripley is dead, the clone has fallen into the hands of government scientists who want to harness the Ripley clone's breeding powers. When the new and improved Ripley lands on a ship of androids, her mere appearance is enought to set the action rolling.
ALIEN RESURRECTION is available on this box set in both the orginal and new extended edition.

Blu-ray was announced this week for Oct/Nov. (memory fails me) Not sure on this set's transfer, I seem to recall It is a bit poor. Of course it's a hot price anyway.

Great price but definitely going to get this on blu ray instead

Good price for the amount of DVDs.
:thumbsup:

Aliens is my favourite film of all time so voted hot but this seems like overkill, how many people actually watch the bonus discs?

Hope it's £8.85 like this :w00t:

Anyone know if this is the proper boxed set or the slim one?

amazing price!!! I have this set. the extras are amazing as is the transfers. This should be an automatic HOT without the added "but" from everyone for the simple fact that there are still a massive list of 1 disk (and crappy films) that cost almost twice as much! Comparing against Blu ray is pointless. compare it against other dvd sets and this is one of the best prices around for anything of quality on dvd!

Hot. I already have this - it's a great set.

If the BLU release is the same as this set - i.e. it contains all of the different versions of the films, and the extras, then i'll buy it in a heartbeat. I just hope they dont release it in 'cut down' form as it just wont match up to this set, it really is that good in my opinion.

Cheers.

10.25 on the side right now.still cheap, voting hot
