With San Diego Comic- Con right around the corner we’re beginning to hear news of guests, panels, exclusives and more! On Tuesday Entertainment Weekly broke the news that one of those panels will be a 30th Anniversary Q & A of the film Aliens, reuniting Director James Cameron, Producer Gale Anne Hurd, and cast members Bill Paxton, Lance Henrikson, Paul Reiser, Michael Biehn, Carrie Henn(Newt) and of course the one and only Ellen Ripley, Sigourney Weaver! Having all of these people together for one panel is a rare occurrence, and with a multitude of 30th Anniversary events and screenings happening around the country for the film this year, this is sure to be the biggest and most exciting!
Taking place on July 23rd, the Panel will miss the exact anniversary date by mere days as the movie hit theaters on July 18th 1986. The Panel will be held in Hall H which can seat 6500 guests.
But that’s not all there is to be excited about! To mark the 30th anniversary of this epic sci fi thriller, 20th Century Fox will be releasing a brand new 30th Anniversary blu ray this September! As reported by EW the new blu ray will include collectible art cards featuring concept sketches by Cameron, a book featuring art from the Dark Horse Comics Aliens series as well as new interview with Cameron. Pre-orders can be taken at SDCC at the 20th Century Fox Comic-Con booth and the first 250 to pre-order will also receive a limited edition lithograph, so collectors be sure to get in line early if you don’t want to miss out on this limited exclusive!
