Alien (1979) – 4k Original Theatrical Cut

Ridley Scott's masterpiece is lethally contemporary ” Peter Bradshaw

Celebrate Alien Day with a new 4k restoration of the original theatrical cut.

“In space, no one can hear you scream…” A close encounter of the third kind becomes a Jaws-style nightmare when an alien invades a spacecraft in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic.
Is this the greatest sci-fi of all time? Did Sigourney Weaver become the sci-fi heroine of cinema because of her role in this? You decide!

In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma.
