Tuesday, April 26, aka 4-26 (as in LV-426), has been dubbed “Alien Day.” To celebrate, several different companies and brands have teamed up to do events related to Ridley Scott’s masterpiece. There will be screenings, Q&As, art shows, special merchandise, and more.
Out of everything, though, our favorite things about the day are the limited edition posters being released.
These first three pieces are all from Mondo and will be released at noon EST. Info is in the descriptions and at this link.
Next are these pieces from the Bottleneck Gallery. The third one, by Laurent Durieux, will be on sale Wednesday at noon EST. The other two will be available on Tuesday at noon EST. There’s more information at this link.
Here are some pieces from Acme Archives. They’re helping with not one, but two art shows, one in Los Angeles and another in Chicago. Here are a few examples. More info here.
Smaller independent sites are getting in on the action too. Here are two pieces by Wooden Nickel, each in both 18 x 24 and 24 x 36 inch options. They’ll go on sale at 3pm EST Tuesday at this link.
But wait ... there’s more! Mondo is also releasing a new pressing of their Aliens score (with an amazing surprise in the vinyl) and the first release of the Prometheus score. More info here but they’ll be available Tuesday as well.
