Alien + Aliens Double Feature (Director's & Extended Cut)

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Alien + Aliens Double Feature (Director's & Extended Cut) at Dendy Canberra



During its return to the earth, commercial spaceship Nostromo intercepts a distress signal from a distant planet. When a three-member team of the crew discovers a chamber containing thousands of eggs on the planet, a creature inside one of the eggs attacks an explorer. The entire crew is unaware of the impending nightmare set to descend upon them when the alien parasite planted inside its unfortunate host is birthed.

ALIEN – DIRECTOR’S CUT is not a simple extended version, rather a recut of the original film with some new scenes added and existing scenes shortened. As a result the Director's Cut is actually one of the rare shorter Director’s Cuts, coming in approximately 47 seconds shorter than the  Original Theatrical Version, mainly due to the shortening of longer takes which serves to tighten up the narrative.


When Ripley's lifepod is found by a salvage crew over 50 years later, she finds that terra-formers are on the very planet they found the alien species. When the company sends a family of colonists out to investigate her story—all contact is lost with the planet and colonists. They enlist Ripley and the colonial marines to return and search for answers.

ALIENS – DIRECTOR’S CUT is considered the definitive edition according to both James Cameron and Sigourney Weaver. Upon release the studio insisted 148 minutes was too long and forced Cameron to remove nearly 16 ½ minutes from the film. This complete version offers far more character depth and background information, primarily focusing on fleshing out Ripley and adding background information about what had happened to Newt's parents.
