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.
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!
