Fox’s ‘Alien’ Anthology Blu-rays to Blow Away Fans?

When it comes to Fox Home Video Blu-ray releases, I shutter in fear that I’m about to get jipped once again. With Fox preparing a super-duper box set for my favorite franchise of all-time, Alien, I’m praying we don’t get another Ghostbusters (Sony’s horrid hi-def release). Good news comes in via The Digital Bits who reports we’re about to be blown away. “In an interview with the L.A. Times over the weekend, actress Sigourney Weaver revealed that she’s going to be recording brand new audio commentary tracks for each of the four ‘Alien’ films – tracks that will be added to Fox’s nearly complete ‘Alien’ Anthology Blu-ray box set. We’ve confirmed this news with our industry sources, who have also informed us that the box set is going to blow away fans of the previous DVD Quadrilogy. Not only have all of those previous extras have been included, but TONS of new material has been added as well exclusively for the Blu-ray release – extras that should make the BD WELL worth upgrading to. The set will be released in mid-to-late 2010.” Fingers crossed it hits alongside James Cameron’s Avatar in 4 to 6 months.
