‘Alien’ bursts back onto the big screen

In space, no one can hear you scream.

Arguably one of the greatest horror and sci-fi films ever made, Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece “Alien” will return to select theaters across the country, including Bainbridge Cinemas, as part of a special 40th anniversary screening event at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Tickets, $12.50 each, are on sale via www.farawayentertainment.com.

Written by cult film icon Dan O’Bannon (perhaps best known for writing and directing the horror comedy “The Return of the Living Dead”), it follows the primarily blue-collar crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo, who encounter the eponymous predatory extraterrestrial, the deadly and aggressive xenomorph, which is then set loose on the ship.

It stars Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm, and Yaphet Kotto and features creature and artifact design work by renowned Swiss artist H. R. Giger.

“Alien” was met with critical acclaim and box office success, winning the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, three Saturn Awards (Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction for Scott, and Best Supporting Actress for Cartwright) and a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, along with numerous other nominations.

It has been consistently praised since its release, spawned numerous sequels, novels, comic books, video games and toys, and is generally considered one of the greatest films of all time.
