Original Alien returning to theaters ahead of Alien: Covenant
'Alien Day' will take place April 26
With its claustrophobic thrills and return to a horror feel, next month’s Alien: Covenant looks to bring back elements of Ridley Scott’s original 1979 Alien film. In fact, the original film will actually be returning to theaters for one night only ahead of Covenant‘s release.
Twentieth Century Fox is christening April 26 “Alien Day,” and celebrating by bringing the original, Sigourney Weaver-starring Alien to participating RPX Regal Cinema theaters across the country, the studio announced Monday. Fans who make it to one of these screenings will also be treated to some Covenant footage, ahead of that film’s release next month.
Tickets for these Alien Day screenings go on sale Tuesday at Regal’s website. Alien: Covenant, meanwhile, will hit theaters on May 19.
