Happy Alien Day! Alien day is a time where we celebrate the world of the Alien franchise! The date 4/26 is a nod to the Moon where the Aliens were discovered on, LV-426. Register here: Alien Anthology to be a part of the celebration, and follow @AlienAnthology to get in on the constest questions.
The Alien franchise got its start in 1979 as a Sci-Fi/Horror film directed by Ridley Scott. The film could be described as “Jaws in Space”, but I read in an interview that Ridley Scott was also inspired by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
The Alien film spawned a sequel, this time directed by James Cameron, where Horror took a backseat to intense Action!
The franchise would continue with Alien3 and later, Alien: Ressurection. Then the franchise spun off into a crossover series with The Predator franchise with the PG-13 AVP and the rated R AVP: Requiem.
There’s no denying the Alien franchise’s effect on Pop Culture! In fact, Reebok is releasing the Alien Stomper shoes featured in the movie Aliens, as worn by Ripley.
