“The ALIEN franchise holds a special place not only within the universe of Fox but with movie enthusiasts across the galaxy. We noticed that fans of the ALIEN films were starting to rally around the calendar date of April 26th — given the connection to the planet LV-426. Quite simply, it gave us the idea to do something special on this day; to officially mark the occasion alongside fans and to build excitement online, in stores and once again, in theaters.”

According to IMDB, in the first Alien film, the crew of the Nostromo spaceship receives a distress call from the LV-426 sector. When they arrive on LV-426, the crew, lead by Captain Dallas (Tom Skerritt) and Lt. Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), discover an alien ship. The crew finds that the ship contains a dangerous cargo, so Ripley and the crew will have to fight for their lives if they want to survive the journey.
