Today is Alien Day—a celebration of the sci-fi horror franchise that first graced theater screens in 1979. The day (4/26) was chosen as a nod to moon LV-426, where the xenomorphs were first discovered.
We’re celebrating by giving you an exclusive clip from Audible’s new audio drama Alien: Out Of The Shadows which stars the likes of Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) and Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter).
Take a listen in the player below.
The summary reads:
As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell – and trimonite, the hardest material known to man.
When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey. Hoop and his associates uncover a nest of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on a new meaning. Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviors….
Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.
