WATCH: Terrifying trailer hits for new Alien 40th anniversary series: Alien Anthology

March 16th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Hard to believe as it may be, Ridley Scott’s timeless sci-fi terror, Alien is 40 years old this year and it looks like there’s going to be some celebrating done.

We’ve got a trailer for a new series of short movies to celebrate the birthday called Alien Anthology.

The trailer (below) ramps the terror up nicely and gets us excited to explore a few new, dark corners of the Alien universe, saying: “In celebration of Ridley Scott’s groundbreaking film Alien (1979), we’re excited to premiere the trailer for our 40th Anniversary Shorts! Six visionary filmmakers were selected to bring their Alien-inspired stories to life.”

Of course we learned a few weeks ago we’re getting an Alien: Isolation series (here) and we expect over the coming weeks and months there’ll be more surprises in store.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
