Actress Sigourney Weaver arrived at North Bergen High School on Friday to thank her enthusiasts. They even organized their amateur presentations and made of Alien and Ripley costumes of recycled materials.
While director Ridley Scott did not come, he also expressed interest through a letter, appreciating his creativity and imagination. The last time a Hollywood veteran returned to the Alien series of 2017 with Alien: Covenant.
Alien's original story was invented by American screenwriter Dan O & # 39; Bannon. Initially, the Alien was named "Star Beast", and many changes have taken place over time. Initially, a man should fight the Alien, but one of the producers thought the woman would be more interesting. Around 1976, the story was reworked by Walter Hill, who made a contract with 20th Century Fox to direct the film, but left it to Ridley Scott.
But the company was scared to invest in science fiction action because Star Wars was coming and no one knew how they would end up. When they were very successful, the Hollywood giant rocked and gave $ 8 million abroad.
The shape of the Alien was determined by the artist H.R. Giger, who, among other things, designed furniture for the film Dune, which would be directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky, but never happened. Many years later, David Lynch used some of his projects. He then applied his favorite bio-mechanical style to the establishment of Giger bars in Switzerland and also contributed to the special line of Ibanez guitars.
