The original film which kicked off a decades' long franchise. Space cargo-carrier the Nostromo, is sent off course to an unknown planet to investigate a distress signal. What could possibly go wrong? This taut, slow-burn, space-fi plays on our fear of the unknown and builds tension through quiet, concentrated photography and plot. Atmospheric, dark and with a killer (oops) cast. If you've never seen this classic on the big screen, you're in for a treat.
Review & trailer: "Ridley Scott's masterpiece is lethally contemporary"
