LV-426 / ALIEN DAY Is here!!


Yes folks Its here! On April 26th, we celebrate our 2nd “Alien Day.” This day was selected because in the original Ridley Scott “Alien” film, the crashed Engineer ship with the face hugger eggs is on planet LV-426 and 4/26 equals April 26th.

We couldn’t be happier. The “Alien” franchise has grown immensely in 35 years and has even branched off into prequels. “Prometheus”, a full-on prequel to the 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece “Alien”.

With the day in full swing we are seeing a lot of art and events in celebration. Here are a few.

Acme Archives

To celebrate Alien Day, Acme Archives, the official Twentieth Century Fox licensee, will be releasing the Alien: Covenant Movie Poster fine art print in a timed release with Dark Ink, Bottleneck Gallery and DaVinci’s Dreams. The print will be available beginning 4/26 at 9am PST. The timed release will end on 5/1 at 12pm PST. The edition size will be decided on the number of orders received.

Mondo is also proud to present Jerry Goldsmith’s score to Ridley Scott’s masterpiece, ALIEN. This 2XLP differs from MCA’s original vinyl release, as this expanded sequence features Jerry Goldsmith’s score as it was originally recorded for the film. Remastered for vinyl, and featuring all new artwork by Kilian Eng.

Conducted by Lionel Newman and performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra, ALIEN is an absolute essential soundtrack; not only for fans of the franchise, but of the legendary composer, and of science fiction and horror cinema itself.

Alamo Drafthouse and Odell Brewing are pleased to announce the arrival of a new, otherworldly limited-batch IPA. Open your airlocks, beer fans, for Zest Burster Citrus IPA. Hatched with a big citrus bite thanks to Citra and Cascade hop varieties and an orange peel finish, this rare breed brew will be available throughout the month of May at Alamo Drafthouse locations in Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, and Arizona, while supplies last.

“This is a refreshing beer that’ll pair nicely with ANY movie watching this summer at Alamo Drafthouse, but it’ll go especially well with Sir Ridley’s deep space movie,” says John Gross, Director of National Beer Promotions at Alamo Drafthouse.” We’re extremely proud to be serving this creatively hop-forward beer from such an innovative and respected brewery like Odell.”
