Welcome to a new species of film documentary
Prepare for dust off, folks. Exploring James Cameron’s epic from teeth to tail, Aliens Expanded will open up this beloved film like never before. Aliens is arguably - Hell, let’s just say it - the greatest sequel of all time; Aliens Expanded will be the ultimate celebration of exactly why.
It will go deep, right into the heart of the nest, to unearth the reason why we return to its embrace again and again. Every line on our lips. Every action beat a muscle memory. A genuine classic still as terrifying as the day we first joined the mission back to LV-426.
Much, much more than a making of. Way more ambitious than some video essay. Never before will such passion, wit, intellect, and pure worship be applied to a single film.
