    It would also be nice if we got a full isolated score to Aliens since that soundtrack also got hacked up in the editing room.

    The latest Digital Bits' Rumor Mill post has the Alien Quadrilogy moved back to 2010. Bummer.

    That's good to hear. I felt that the Alien movies were lacking in the supplement department.

    Any plans to properly rename it to Alien Tetralogy ?

    I kid, I kid! Can't wait for this set on Blu!

    Excellent news! My biggest wish is that they get Weaver and other cast members to ADR the lines from the Alien3 special edition that were of lower quality before. Come to think of it, anything that expands on the Alien3 footage would be welcome. There were many deleted scenes not included on the Quadrilogy boxset. Or even better... David Fincher works on a new cut ;)

    Fully agree on this one. Now don´t get me wrong: I love Quadrilogy box set and ALL the extras (let´s face it: one of the best DVD-releases of all time - thanks to people like mr. de Lauzirika), but at least one thing is sorely missing: David Fincher. PLEASE try to get at least that interview from him. Or more..

    Maybe they could include the infamous missing burke cocoon sequence in the next aliens release? At least as a seperate deleted scene? :)

    Not likely. Supposedly Cameron himself nixed the inclusion of that scene the first time around

    Charlie, is there any chance of getting Fox to include the full, uncut version of your Alien 3 documentary this time around? While I certainly wasn't privy to any of the political decisions that probably went into the editing of it on the Quadrilogy release, surely enough time has passed that the current regime there wouldn't feel opposed to including the rest of that footage that got snipped the first time around?

    If anything, it'd be a major selling-point for the new Blu-Ray box set, especially for those who already owned the previous version -- I'd damn sure pick it up in HD for that alone.

    I can't really comment on upcoming projects until the studio in question announces them. So in the meantime, I'd say Sigourney Weaver is a better source of info for this than I am.

    Just read in this month's Empire that a new sound mix for Alien³ extended edition has finally been done! Charlie, I don't know what you had to do (and I'm not sure I wanna know!) to make that a reality, but you've made my day.

    Any chance for the Alien3 making of to be the original uncut version? Probably too much to ask for, but you'll never know . In any case, it's great that Fox will give the movie a new, much needed soundtrack.
