20th Century Fox Home Entertainment to release the Alien 20th Anniversary Edition on DVD and VHS, featuring a documentary and supplemental materials produced by Sharpline Arts.
In 1992, FoxVideo released the
benchmark Special Edition Laser Disc of Ridley Scott¹s ALIEN, for which
Sharpline Arts¹ extensive supplemental presentation set a standard for
the medium. Since then, Sharpline Arts has been called upon to preserve
and enhance the gems of the Fox catalog, its staff having produced
distinguished Laser Disc special editions for Aliens, The Abyss, The Sound of Music, and The King and I, and best-selling soundtrack albums
for The Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition. Now, 20th Century Fox Home
Entertainment will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Alien with the DVD
debut of all four films in the series and a VHS Collector¹s Set, to be
released this summer, and they have again turned to Sharpline Arts for
the supplemental programming. This time, the rare outtakes, photographs,
and behind-the-scenes footage presented on the Laser Disc have been
incorporated into a comprehensive 68-minute documentary on the making of
Alien, produced by David C. Fein and directed by Michael Matessino. New
interviews and additional never-before-seen material will be featured,
and the DVD will contain a running commentary with director Ridley Scott
and many more exclusive surprises. Like its Laser Disc predecessor,
Alien on DVD is poised to set a new standard for the format, and is
certain to be one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
