Alien: The Directors Cut

The director's cut of this 1979 sci-fi thriller casts us into the creepy void of space where the huge cargo ship Nostromo and its crew of 7 (5 men and 2 women) faces something meaner and uglier than they could imagine. The casting is wonderful: led by Captain Tom Skerritt, the hapless crew consists of Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton, Veronica Cartwright, John Hurt, Iam Holm, and and of course Sigourney Weaver in her breakout role. She plays Warrant Officer E.L. Ripley. The crew comes face to face with a stowaway alien on the spacecraft and an intense trail of murders begins. The ship is full of dark hallways and corners that add to the suspense. Director Ridley Scott in this newly restored special edition re-edited the film incorporating new footage never before seen in theaters. Most young people have only seen the original version on the small TV screen. Now they can appreciate it on the big screen at the movies.
