The movie may be from 1979, but as you can see in this brand new Alien “In Space No One Can Hear You Scream” Trailer, it still looks really cool. It would be awesome if this was a trailer for a new movie, but apparently 20th Century FOX released this just to promote the existing Alien Movies on Blu-ray and DVD. It’s still fascinating to see a modern style trailer for a sci-fi movie that is almost 40 years old.
There is also a brand new Aliens Trailer for the sequel.
The time is the future. The crew aboard a massive commercial space vehicle is enroute to earth with a load of extraterrestrial ore when they are sidetracked by mysterious signals from a nearby planet. The signals seem to be calls for help and when the space ship arrives they find a ruined, moldering spacecraft and within it egg-like living organisms.
