It’s Alien Day next April 26th (yes, that’s a real thing now) and a number of cool stuff is coming out to celebrate the famous Sci-Fi franchise, including a new audiodrama and a shiny pair of shoes.
Footwear For Fighting Aliens
First up, Reebok will be coming out with some replica footwear to let you copy the style of the far future.
These are Reebok Stompers and they are the iconic super futuristic shoes worn by Sigourney Weaver in the sequel Aliens.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Reebok will be releasing the high tops worn by Weaver and the mid-tops worn by Bishop in the movie.
These, alongside the Back to the Future shoes Nike released, will mean you are sure to be sporting the most high tech in footwear.
The Aliens Invade Audible
Audible are also celebrating Alien day with the release of a new audible drama called Alien Out of the Shadows.
This audiodrama will be starring Rutger Hauer, of Blade Runner fame. I expect it will most likely be an adaptation of the novel of the same name that came out in 2014 (see above), forming the first part in a new official trilogy of books set in the universe of the Alien franchise.
Personally, this is the release I am most excited for come Alien Day. I love a good audiodrama and I’m sure one starring the xenomorphs could be suitably chilling, especially with the talent that seems to be behind it.
What will you do to celebrate Alien Day?
