Judge for yourselves whether those “Alien 5/6” plots we received the other day were the real deal [I’m frankly more inclined to believe Keanu Reeves is hot fave to get Best Actor at next years Oscars], but one part of the “Alien” legacy that we will be seeing on the big screen, is the first part. Again. Yep, seems Ridley Scott’s commended science-fiction blockbuster “Alien” [1979] is headed for theatres again – And it’s probably a good thing, considering most folks under the age of 30 probably saw it on video or TV, and never the way it was intended.

But don’t let the ‘re-release’ tag put you off – it’s going to be far from a Lucas-esque special edition with new CGI monsters in the backdrop.It’ll merely be the original film plus some lost footage, as FilmJerk reports :

“The announcement last month that Fox would be re-releasing Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic "Alien" into theaters on Halloween was met with wild enthusiasm by fans of the movie, with the most often asked question being, "Will the film include any restored scenes?

“FilmJerk.com has learned, through contacts within Fox Films, that the film will be getting most, if not all, of the cut footage restored back into the narrative. Final details are still being worked out, but our source tells us the film’s soundtrack will also be remastered to take advantage of today’s digital cinema sound formats, and will be positioned as a major fall release, to play on over 2,000 screens.

“Our source also tells us that, should this rerelease become successful, like the "Star Wars" trilogy and "Exorcist" rereleases, tentative plans have already been set to release James Cameron’s restored cut of "Aliens" into theatres next spring.”

Did someone say “Aliens”? – Oh yeah! Get me my front row tickets…and now.
