If you've been following this website for any significant length of time, you'll be very familiar with Dane Hallett, he's one of the concept artists who worked on Alien: Covenant and his work is legendary. He's also provided concept work for other films such as Pacific Rim: Uprising and Aquaman. I got to meet him personally at the Alien: Covenant premiere in London back I'm 2017 and the man is an absolute gem and a genuine Alien fan through and through. To celebrate Alien's 40th anniversary, Dane has released a breathtaking new Alien poster, completely his own work. This is one of many exclusive Alien pieces he will be sharing in the coming weeks as we lead up to Alien Day (April 26th). If you follow his Facebook page you will have a chance at snagging some of these works while they're available, but you'll have to be quick! We will of course promote them here, but if you wish to download a lossless quality version for printing, you will need to follow the links Dane provides.
2019 marks the 40yr anniversary of Alien first gracing the silver screen. As such, I've been invited to contribute to a few cool projects here and there (one for the good folks over at Titan Publishing again - but you'll have to wait until they're ready to reveal exactly what).
Producing all these paintings put me in the mood to organise a little something to thank you guys for your support and so in the weeks leading up to 'Alien day', I'll post links to a limited collection of free, high resolution, alternate Alien poster image files I produced for you to download and use as you wish.
They are yours to share, download, print and enjoy - just do me the honour of crediting me for my work where possible.
Each link will be posted randomly and only be active for a few hours, so watch this space and be quick!
These are massive files, finished to the same level I would if I was submitting them to a studio/agency. Both lossless TIFFs and hi-res JPGs will be included at sizes big enough to be printed at A0 and still retain perfect quality.
If I ever see you, I'll gladly sign/deface them but unfortunately, my life is a little too hectic to accommodate any kind of postage requests, so please don't ask.
Disclaimer - If you try to sell them, Disney/Fox are pretty hard on those unlawfully profiting from their franchises (personally, I don't care) so **beware**!!!
From the bottom of my chest bursting heart, thanks for the support!
UPDATE: A second poster was released today (April 1st, 2019).
UPDATE: The final poster for this series was revealed today on April 24th:
We're big supporters of Dane and his work and we hope many of you reading will get a chance to obtain some of his works for yourself! In the meantime, check back for more updates as we get closer to Alien Day 2019!

The future of Alien
The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.
