Even if you're not a fan of James Cameron's ALIENS, it would be tough to avoid the knowledge that this year marks its 30th anniversary. With Alien Day events, screenings, Q&As, and convention appearances, studio 20th Century Fox and members of the cast and crew have been celebrating this anniversary all year long.

The celebration continues on September 13th, when Fox will be putting out a 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray and Digital HD release of the film.

James Cameron directed this critically acclaimed sequel starring Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the Nostromo’s deadly encounter with the monstrous Alien. After drifting through space in hypersleep for 57 years, Ripley returns to Earth, haunted by nightmares of the past. Although her story is initially met with disbelief, she agrees to accompany a team of Colonial Marines back to LV-426... and this time it’s war!

This new set will include both the theatrical and special edition cuts of ALIENS, and will also have the following bonus features: 

- NEW – The Inspiration and Design of Aliens featurette
