Alien Quadrilogy - R2 Announcement and Menu Screens

Fox Home Entertainment have officially announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of the Alien Quadrilogy as a highly collectable numbered boxset for 8th December 2003 with a retail price of £69.99. This definitive collection features the terrifying Alien Saga, digitally re-mastered and reborn as the ultimate 9-disc limited edition.

Featuring special editions of all four films together for the first time on DVD, Alien Quadrilogy is a must-have boxset for sci-fi and film fans alike this Christmas. The Alien movies have been keeping audiences enthralled and terrified for over 2 decades and have turned Sigourney Weaver into an international star.

Alien Quadrilogy contains both the original theatrical and brand new, extended versions of the four films (Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection – including Scott’s 2003 Alien Directors Cut) each with it’s own additional disc containing new and intriguing bonus material. In addition a ninth disc, which has been specially created to delve even deeper into the Alien Saga and showcase the spectacular special effects, breathtaking cinematography and thrilling action sequences – guaranteed to thrill and impress.

A full and detailed list of bonus features can be found below alongside menu screens taken from each and every disc (with the exception of Aliens for now, but expect an update with those very soon)...
