    Only thing about this is that the DVD/BD sets were almost exhaustively comprehensive on the making of “Alien” that I wonder if this will incorporate anything new.

    agreed. Alien may be my favorite film ever, if not at least in the top 3. But after decades of mostly disappointing sequels, I feel it's time to walk away from any more Alien stories or docs. I will enjoy the original occasionally and let it exist without any other distractions. One grand movie pumped for one last drop of tepid excitement.

    The release date in the OP says 2019-01-24 which is assume is a typo. A google says October 4th. I wonder if this will make to Podunk (Little Rock) AR? I will see it if it does. Failing that, I hope it makes it to Netflix or Prime.
