As I’ve discussed before, when I made the jump to Blu Ray my wife made me promise that I wouldn’t double dip from my nearly 200+ standard DVD collection. However I got her to agree to a small number of movies that I could repurchase on the new format. Among those titles are Big Trouble in Little China, Star Trek: First Contact, and Sunshine.
One of the top titles on that list was Aliens, my favorite James Cameron film and arguably the gold standard for sci-fi action. After what seems like an eternity Fox has unveiled their plans for a brand new Alien Anthology set for release October 26, 2010.
The Aliens Anthology will include all for Alien films with tons of special features, including over 60 hours of behind the scenes footage. While some of the features were already released on the rather ridiculous sounding Alien Quadrilogy, this definitely looks like a set worth owning. The standard set is up for pre-order over at Amazon at $97.99, while the snazzier Alien Egg Version will set you back $149.99.
