Musings of a Blerd: April 26th is Alien Day

Facebooktwitterredditmail
Yesterday, Twentieth Century Fox proclaimed that April 26 will be known as Alien Day.  In a similar notion to last year’s Back to the Future Day, Alien Day will celebrate the science fiction horror franchise, Alien that started with the first film by Ridly Scott that was released in 1979. The date 4/26 is a nod to the exmoon LV-426 where the xenomorphs were first discovered by Ripley and her crew mates.

To celebrate, Fox has lots of products that will be released commemorating the glorious day. One such product is the release of a limited edition replica of AliensReebok Stompers. The shoes were worn by Ripley and the Android Bishop (Sigourney Weaver and Lance Henrikson) in the films, and will be available starting April 26th at Reebok.com and select Reebok stores around the globe.

Another product that will be released is an original drama from Audible.com titled Alien: Out of the Shadows.  Written by Tim Lebbon and Dirk Maggs, the  story takes place between Alien and Aliens, and stars Rutger Hauer, Corey Johnson, Matthew Lewis, Kathryn Drysdale, Laurel Lefkow, Andrea Deck, and Mac McDonald. You can read the synopsis below:

As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell – and trimonite, the hardest material known to man.

When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey. Hoop and his associates uncover a nest of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on a new meaning. Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviors….

Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.
