45 Rare And Amazing Color Photographs Of Behind The Scenes From The Set Of ‘Alien’, 1979
An iconic film which shaped generations of sci-fi / horror films to come. Alien is a masterpiece and a film that can still invoke fear and wonder even after repeated viewings.
Alien received both critical acclaim and box office success, receiving an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, Saturn Awards for Best Science Fiction Film, along with numerous other award nominations. It has remained highly praised in subsequent decades, being considered one of the greatest films of all time.

It also launched Sigourney Weaver’s acting career by providing her with her first lead role, and the story of her character Ellen Ripley’s encounters with the Alien creatures became the thematic thread that ran through the sequels Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992) and Alien: Resurrection (1997).
