It’s been 30 years since James Cameron’s Aliens was first released, but the film remains a classic, one that definitely stands the test of time. To celebrate the film’s success as one of the most influential sci-fi/horror/action films ever made, an Anniversary edition is being released on September 13th; you can pre-order yours on Amazon for the unbelievably low price of $9.96.
Official Synopsis: After floating in space for 57 years, Lt. Ripley’s (Sigourney Weaver) shuttle is found by a deep space salvage team. Upon arriving at LV-426, the marines find only one survivor, a nine year old girl named Newt (Carrie Henn). But even these battle-hardened marines with all the latest weaponry are no match for the hundreds of aliens that have invaded the colony.
