To mark the 40th Anniversary of A L I E N, Titan books are releasing The Making of ALIEN by J.W. Rinzler.
Set for release on 23rd of April, this hardback edition will retail at around £44.99.
In 1979 a movie legend was born, as Twentieth Century-Fox and director Ridley Scott unleashed Alien and gave audiences around the world the scare of their lives.
To celebrate the movie’s fortieth anniversary, author J.W. Rinzler (The Making of Star Wars) tells the whole fascinating story of how Alien evolved from a simple idea in the mind of writer Dan O’Bannon into one of the most memorable sci-fi horror thrillers of all time.
With interviews with Ridley Scott and other key members of the original production crew, and featuring many never-before-seen photographs and artworks from the archives, The Making of Alien is the definitive work on this masterpiece of popular cinema.
J. W. Rinzler has previously authored New York Times bestseller The Making of Star Wars, London Times bestseller The Complete Making of Indiana Jones, and the #1 best-selling graphic novel The Star Wars. He was the executive editor at Lucasfilm for 15 years. His most recent works are The Making of Planet of the Apes and ALL UP, an epic historical-fiction novel on the first Space Age.
Sounds very promising, especially as it will contain previously unseen photographs & artwork, always a great hook line for an Alien buff. Will you be adding this book to your A L I E N collection?
