It may seem hard to believe given how well the movie has held up, but Ridley Scott's Alien celebrates its 45th anniversary this year, and 20th Century Studios is re-releasing the sci-fi/horror classic in theaters.

Alien will return to the big screen for a limited run starting April 26, and tickets are now on sale.

The studio has also shared a new poster paying homage to the original one-sheet, a remastered TV spot, and a preview of an exclusive conversation between Scott and Alien: Romulus Director Fede Alvarez, with the filmmakers discussing the original film's iconic chest-bursting scene.

Check out the new promos at the links below, and let us know if you plan on seeing Alien when it returns to theaters.

One of the most influential sci-fi/horror films of all time, Alien, which was released in June 1979 and won an Oscar for best visual effects, stars Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm, and Yaphet Kotto.

It is the terrifying tale of a crew aboard a commercial spacecraft that lands on an alien planet to investigate a mysterious transmission of unknown origin and encounters the deadliest lifeform in the universe.

Alien is directed by Ridley Scot, with a screenplay by Dan O’Bannon and a story by Ronald Shusett, and the producers are Gordon Carroll, David Giler, and Walter Hill. Alien,the iconic film that launched the phenomenally successful franchise, has spawned successful products in various ancillary markets, including comic books, video games, novels, merchandise, and an active social presence.

20th Century Studios’ Alien: Romulus, a truly terrifying cinematic experience from producer Ridley Scott and director/writer Fede Alvarez, opens in theaters nationwide August 16, 2024. The sci-fi/horror-thriller takes the phenomenally successful Alien franchise back to its roots: While scavenging the deep ends of a derelict space station, a group of young space colonizers come face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe.
