As it was anticipated, the 6 short films that won the Tongal / Fox competition will be soon released. The new movies will launch first at Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle this weekend. They will then be released weekly online by the entertainment site IGN beginning March 29, before being added to AlienUniverse.com and the @AlienAnthology social media channels alongside exclusive behind-the-scenes content starting May 5. However, the official debut of the project comes at this week’s Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle, where a selection of material from the project will be screened on Friday, with an additional screening set for March 23 at C2E2 in Chicago and March 30 at WonderCon in Anaheim.

Thanks to THR for the news.

More details and official description of the shorts can be found here.

The embedded video of the first short disappeared somehow, but you can still find it on IGN.

I am glad Harvest made it to the Alien Day.

Gavin made a post for this but here it is as I earlier stated I would put the shorts on this thread.

Thanks, dk.

I have to wait for a better internet connection.

Long, hard wait.

Just watched Night Shift. I loved the very nihilistic ending. Bleak and very fitting.

I thought Night Shift was a bit predictable but there was a twist that gave a sense of uh-oh.

Containment still my favorite so far. reminds me of a sequence from Tim Lebbon's Alien: Out of the Shadows novel

So far I think Specimen is the most perfect specimen. I love the twist at the end that was right under our noses from the start and the transition from music to Oh Shit alarm when she took off the headphones.

Did anyone hear a Predator right at the end of Night Shift?

Here is the little chest buster on rails lol!

 Thank DK and Gavin.

I embedded the video here. I read it features a xenomorph and it is the best of the shorts so far. Can't wait to watch it.

#6 Alone

Masterpiece.

I Raptus

Apr-27-2019 5:56 PM

Leto agreed! Alone was masterfully executed. The synthetic showed relatable emotion and motives that made her more of a sympathetic antagonist than David or Ash...more like Bishop gone amoral. 

Well done to the Alone team!

Of all the shorts, I would be most intrigued to see more of this story

The last xeno action didn't seem to make much sense imo (don't want to spoil).

I Raptus

So where it shows her hands being all twitchy does anyone else think this might be a physical metaphor reference to her being a "Hyperdyne model" synth. Explains why she went rogue

"Yeah. The Hyperdyne Systems 120-A/2."
"Well that explains it. The A/2s always were a bit twitchy."

I Raptus Yes, that observation was made quite a bit in YT comments. Good catch.

An interesting thing about Alone was the Xeno killing the synth at the end. Historically, synths were never targets of Xenos (except for Bishop). This short seemed to display a deeper intelligence from the Xeno- WY to the end- even synths are subject to the bigger agenda.
