Remember back in June when Alien Anthology was only $38.99 on Blu-ray? Well if you bought it then, you were a sucker. Today, a scant five months later, it’s Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day and is going for $19.99 (71% off MSRP). To be fair, this is a set worth owning at any price. Not only do you get all of the Alien movies in HD as well as all the special features from the incredible Alien Quadrilogy box set, but there are also new extras created especially for this set (like what really happened on Alien 3).

Today’s Amazon Deal of the Day is the amazing Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set for $29.99 (which is 63% off retail). Loaded with all four movies (Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, and Alien Resurrection) and two bonus discs with over 65 hours of archival and never-before-seen content, it’s a must own for fans of the franchise. I own this box set and it’s absolutely incredible.
Like all Deals of the Day, the offer is only good till they sell out of available copies or until midnight tonight. So if you’re interested, don’t wait. You also get free shipping since it’s over $25. Hit the jump for exactly what’s in the box set.
Holy God. That’s one of the first reactions one has to 20th Century Fox’s six disc Blu-ray release of the Alien Anthology. It was put together by Charles de Lauzirika, and he’s the guy who’s been doing all the supplements for this franchise for years now, including the awkwardly named Alien Quadrilogy. His task was to make a collection that had not only improved picture and sound quality, but all the supplements of previous releases, and even more additional content. He and his team delivered; this is the mother lode. Of course, the series is also presented immaculately, with each film offering two cuts, deleted scenes, commentaries and isolated scores. The six disc set has over 60 hours of supplements. It’s mind-boggling and overwhelming, but also the perfect franchise for this sort of study, and it’s perfect for Blu-ray. Our humbled review of the Alien Anthology Blu-ray set follows after the jump.
We all own far too many DVDs. Nowadays, a lot of us are buying way too many Blu-rays. However, every once in awhile, usually around the holidays, a box set will get released that is just too awesome to pass up. Next week one such release hits retail stores: the Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set. Loaded with over 50 hours of bonus materials and theatrical and special editions of all the Alien movies, the box set is one of the most comprehensive home video releases ever. We got our review copy in the mail today and it’s on a whole other level of awesome. If you’re a fan of the Alien movies, this is a must own release. Granted, it’ll take you the rest of the decade to watch all the special features, but you will feel like you got your money’s worth.
However, while most of you will have to buy this box set, a few of you can get it for free! That’s because thanks to Fox Home Video, we’ve been given 3 copies to giveaway to some of our readers, so hit the jump to see how to enter and you can also look over all the extras that are included in this release. Trust me, you want to own this:
In addition to the excellent Criterion Blu-ray news we reported earlier today, we have two more items that will please HD cinephiles. First up, Blu-ray.com confirms a story we ran a couple weeks ago that hinted the Blu-ray of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse was on the way. While there are no details about the set (although Edgar Wright said he did a commentary track for his fake trailer, Don’t), you should mark your calendars for October 5th. I’m excited to see these films put back together because that’s how they were meant to be seen.
