Alien Day Live Stream

Watch the special Alien Day live stream, featuring Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, and more actors from the upcoming Alien: Covenant!

Today we celebrate Alien Day, on which we commemorate one of the greatest sci-fi horror films ever made. Alien, originally released on May 25, 1979, remains a true masterpiece so many years later, and its legacy has spread out to a whole franchise of films, most recently in the Ridley Scott-directed Prometheus and the upcoming Alien: Covenant, which is out in theaters on May 19, 2017. 

Why is April 26 Alien Day specifically? While it’s not an anniversary, it does have something to do with a planet in the film – LV-426, the planet on which Ripley and the crew of the Nostromo first encountered a mysterious alien lifeform that would soon doom the ship and most of its crew. So it’s only appropriate we celebrate these hours of terror on 4/26.

Alien: Covenant cast members Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, and Jussie Smollett will join fan-focused festivities, including a live streamed Q&A. There will also be an interactive trivia challenge on as well as worldwide screenings of Alien, with exclusive screenings in the U.S. on Regal RPX screens.

The stream begins at 2:15 pm ET. You can check it out below:
