This is the footage for the final instalments #5 and #6 in the Alien Appendix series! The footage will spread over 2 DVDs. If anyone has any unreleased/rare footage to contribute with (especially Electronic Press Kit for Alien Resurrection), please let me know ASAP via private message or the forum. The project is in the final stages and additional footage will be collected through September only, with the "release dates" in October. All known contributors are credited next to the footage (unknown contributors, please let me know so you can be credited on the discs). Well, that's it from me, now it's your turn to check your Alien archives and contribute... tb1971

Well, you're right - hope we'll be ready for mega archival project when the new Alien movie hits the theatres. But considering Alien 1-4, that's pretty much it. I'm not aware of any other significant unreleased footage available.

Aliens EPK has arrived! As suspected some of the content was available on Alien saga DVD (trailer & featurettes), but other footage (soundbites & b-roll) I have never seen before and will be included on AA#5. The content list in the first post has been updated. Sadly I haven't heard from any other fans to contribute with new footage.

I guess there will be room for DVD Rom section so if anyone wants to make one for inclusion on the DVDs, please do so and let me know. Maybe I can create a slide show with lobby cards + press stills for each movie. Since I don't have those, someone will need to scan and email them to me.

anyone ever thought of ripping the LD material?

Alien THX LD is mastered from the 70mm negative which had a slightly alternate audio track (not quite sure what it was but there was some info on it on the net)

and the original Alien & Aliens SE LD's with oddles of supplemental materials

Alien saga should be released on Blu-ray probably early next year, so there is no need for LD preservation. Also, I believe all bonus content from LDs was transferred to Alien Quadrilogy DVD set.

Looking forward to this as all of these have been great.  Cheers.

Hello Alien enthusiasts! As promissed AA#5 DVD is finished on time and AA#6 will follow shortly. Now it's up to Ash595 to make DVD covers & disc art to match previous releases (if photos are needed, let me know), so they can be uploaded along with DVDs. Below is the final content info, without Easter eggs (AA#5 has 2 and AA#6 has 1). Hope you'll enjoy the DVDs (both are in PAL format)... tb1971 signing off

Ressurecting the project was no problem at all, even Ridley Scott has done it recently. I was hoping to get hold of Alien Resurrection EPK, but no one seems to have it (which is weird considering it's quite new movie). If someone does have anything else to contribute with, would they please contact me ASAP. Thanks!

Hello,

Would it be possible for some kind soul to upload this to a newsgroup?  Also, can someone upload Alien Appendix #3 to a group as well?  Unless there is some way to obtain these without using Rapidshare or Torrents?  I somehow missed #3.  It would be much appreciated!  Thanks!

Guys, thanks for the responses!

1.  8T88- If I understand you correctly, you intend to upload AA5?  Is that correct...if so, Thank You for taking the time to do that!

2.  Not to be a pest but I would also like to pick-up AA3, if possible.  Do you guys know how I can obtain it?

 

Thx again!

I'm willing to upload, the only problem is that i don't have AA05. And i refuse to use rapidshit..... So i'm waiting on a torrent or a usenet release.

No prob! Just started posting. Going up at Comcastic (tm) :-p speed.

 

Wicked cool menu! Can't wait to watch the whole thing, only had a chance to glance over it before posting.

 

Alt.binaries.dvd, and alt.binaries.midnightmovies.

 

Dagnabbit! I forgot to xpost the nzb to the nzb group. I'm getting rusty.

One day I found... 10 years had got behind me. Next day was worse.

 

Download  shows from Cable DVR (Updated! Yes, it needs a rewrite, but it's worth slogging through, anyway).

Hello,

Jaiman, thanks for posting this, I really appreciate it!  Also, you wouldn't happen to have AA3 would you?  If so, would you be willing to post it?  AA3 is the only one I missed.  Thx!
