Alien Vault: The Definitive Story of the Making of the Film Book Review

About the Book: For over thirty years, audiences have been simultaneously captivated and appalled as the spaceship Nostromo is invaded and its crew stalked by a terrifying parasitic creature. From the gore of the infant alien bursting from Kane’s chest to the mounting claustrophobia as Ripley discovers the monster has followed her into the escape shuttle, Alien is a chilling masterpiece.

Now, Alien Vault: The Definitive Story of the Making of the Film opens a portal into the making of this legendary film, tracing its path from embryonic concept to fully fledged box office phenomenon.

Featured herein are director Ridley Scott’s own annotated storyboards, Polaroids and script pages; the elegant but disturbing concept artwork of H.R. Giger; sketches and construction blueprints for the Nostromo; costume designs by Moebius; a treasure trove of never-before-seen photographs of the cast and crew; and ten meticulously reproduced artifacts, enclosed in vellum envelopes, for readers to remove and examine more closely.

Fully authorized and illustrated throughout, Alien Vault is the ultimate tribute to a movie that changed cinema forever.

Our Take: The Alien franchise is without a doubt the coolest and most involved sci-fi franchise in history.  It all started back in 1979 with Ridley Scott's Alien.  Directors since have included James Cameron and David Fincher, but that original movie by Scott was without a doubt the launchpad for the epic franchise.  This new book, The Alien Vault, is the ultimate fan experience.  I never thought of all the films that Alien would get the star treatment like this, but man am I glad it did!

The vault is a hardcover book with a nice slipcase that features the iconic image of the alien egg with the green burst coming from the crack.  The book opens up to reveal page after page of in-depth and detailed information about the film, along with reproductions of various affirmia and collectibles from the era.   This book is without a doubt our favorite book of the fall and is a MUST have for any respectable sci-fi nerd!  This one is a complete WIN!
