Premiering at Sundance, director Alexandre O. Philippe (78/52)’s Memory: The Origins Of Alien promises to tell even the most hardcore Alien fans stories they’ve never heard and show them things they’ve never seen. EW just scored the poster art for the doc, found below.
“Memory is the origin story of Alien, but it really is a full-on mythological take on the film. It’s an exploration of the power of cinema, the power of myths. It’s a very unique look at the original Alien film,” Philippe told the site.
“We were very fortunate to be able to work with Diane O’Bannon, who is Dan’s widow, and who is one of our executive producers. She opened Dan’s archive for the very first time, so there’s a lot of stuff that fans of the film have probably heard about but have never seen.”
The doc was shot in 4K resolution, and is planned for early 2019 release to mark the 40th anniversary of the release of Ridley Scott’s horror/sci-fi masterpiece, Alien.
