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.

The latest from the Bits:

and we've confirmed that the studio continues to work on The Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set for release in 2010.
Can't wait! This is my most eagerly awaited title right now.

here is more from the Bits


Quote:
This is just a quick update on a title we've talked about several times before, but as it's still a few months away from being officially announced, the news belongs here. In an interview with the L.A. Times over the weekend, actress Sigourney Weaver revealed that she's going to be recording brand new audio commentary tracks for each of the four Alien films - tracks that will be added to Fox's nearly complete Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set. We've confirmed this news with our industry sources, who have also informed us that the box set is going to blow away fans of the previous DVD Quadrilogy. Not only have all of those previous extras have been included, but TONS of new material has been added as well exclusively for the Blu-ray release - extras that should make the BD WELL worth upgrading to. The set will be released in mid-to-late 2010, and rest assured we'll keep you up to date on it. 
 
From that very same interview http://latimesblogs....good-to-me.html

Quote:
In the meantime, Weaver has been living in the future by promoting “Avatar” and getting ready to revisit her past – she will be sitting down in the weeks to come to watch all of “Alien” films as part of the process of recording commentary for the upcoming Blu-ray release of the four-film franchise.

“I’ve never done that, watched all of them in a row,” Weaver said. “I just recently made my [19-year-old] daughter watch them. She had never seen them before, believe it or not. I think she just prefers to think of me as good ol’ mom, you know, not some person running around a spaceship with a flamethrower.”

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 ? /img/vbsmilies/htf/tongue.gif

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.

from the Bits Rumor Mill


Quote:
And finally, consider this Rumor Mill worthy, but there's been some concern about Fox's Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set. Specifically, people there are stories flying around the InterWebs to the effect that the set will include not only the four previous Alien films, but also the two Alien vs. Predator films as well. Not so. Our Magic 8 Ball says it's just the four classic Alien films. So feel free to rest easy... or freak out... as you will. But plan accordingly.

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.

Reading the above comment is a good reason for me to bring out this clip. <br /></span>

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