The only time studios usually re-release films is to cash in on that particular films name, ie. because they’re about to make a sequel or something related. That could be good news for those hoping for an "Alien 5", with word just in that "Alien" is about to re-released. Says FilmJerk,"Although the film Alien will not celebrate the 25th Anniversary of its release until May 25, 2004, 20th Century Fox has scheduled a wide reissue of the film for Halloween, October 31. No word yet on whether director Ridley Scott will be reincorporating deleted footage or not." Sounds promising?
