Empire Classics: Alien

The latest in Empire’s special collectors’ series tackles one of cinema’s most iconic and inventive sci-fi series, from its audience-shocking inception with Ridley Scott’s 1979 game-changer through to its striking return with recent prequels Prometheus and Alien: Covenant. It takes in one the best-ever sequels — namely Aliens — and also one of its most troubled (Alien3), while also looking back at the two crossover spin-offs where the acid-blooded monster took on the Predator.

Chest-bursting with insight and access, Empire Classics: Alien features in-depth interviews with Ridley Scott, Aliens director James Cameron and the xenomorph-fighting Ripley herself, Sigourney Weaver. But that’s not all: we’ve pulled set reports from the Empire archives, revealed the gory details of the first film’s Chestburster screen, and explored the strange story of the never-made ‘Wooden Planet’ version of Alien3. With the original reviews, a love letter to Aliens and an exploration of the franchise’s future, it truly is the definitive guide to the movies’ greatest monster.
