Stop your grinnin’ and drop your linen because Aliens is coming to Empire Live. Among the greatest sequels ever made, Aliens picks up where Ridley Scott’s original left off, with Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley floating through space. James Cameron has never been one to re-tread old ground, though, and with a remarkably effective gear shift, a terrifying horror film became a blood-pumping platoon movie as Ripley returns to LV-426 with a squad of badass colonial marines in a bid to salvage what’s left of her sanity. But where there was one, now there are many. This time it’s war.
If you missed Aliens’ theatrical run back in 1986, this is a rare chance to see Hudson, Hicks, and Vasquez do their thing on the big screen. So saddle up and join us for a must-see screening. We’re on an express elevator to hell — going down!
This event takes place at 9-11.15pm on Sunday, 25 September.
Aliens 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray SteelBook is out on 3 October.
