If you like Alien, you’re about to add something to your Christmas list if you don’t piss yourself in the process.
Today, USA Today reported (click to read it) that on December 2nd (mark that day down), Alien, and all of its director cuts and sequels glory, will be released on a MASSIVE – 9 (that’s N-I-N-E) DVD Box set. Remember all those “extras” on the Lord of the Rings Extended DVDs?? Yeah? That’s nothing.. Alien will contain a root-growing 45 hours of Bonus Footage. 45!! Fourty-Five!!
It will also contain multiple movies:
-The Director’s Cut, which you should go see in theatres right now.
-The Original Aliens
-A Director’s Cut (James Cameron) of Aliens
-Aliens 3 with a half hour more of stuff
-Aliens 4 with multiple openings and endings
If they put one movie on each DVD, that’s still 3 DVDs left for other stuff! – Now THAT’S what I call Bonus Features done properly. Overkill is always good if it means extra entertainment.
