Let's denote this is considered the "40th Anniversary Edition" at that.

I will be mighty happy AND pissed if they release Aliens 4K next. It was my favorite of the franchise, but let's not forget that Cameron doesn't have any free time and such a release would require his attention.

Cool, but unless Fox actually puts the 4K print on the BD disc as well, it does me no good.

Looks like Zavvi's gonna run a SteelBook - I'm 50/50 on the art, love the internal wrap, but the outside just looks like someone recovered the egg and Big Chap from an oil spill?

Sort of looks like a Faberge piece of jewelry. A broach or locket of some sort. Looks too synthetic.
Hell, even the back cover looks pretty mechanical - sort of like the handle of a dagger or something.

Link currently not working, but Best Buy has it on their page.
Search Alien 4K and you will be presented with UHD-BD-ALIEN STLBK and a release date of 4/2.
I suspect the same cover art as Zavvi.

April 2 --- I CALLED IT!
UK has release days on Mondays, they are slated for April 1, so I gandered we'd be the day after.

Sounds like a missed opportunity. It should have been April 26th.

Though, I doubt the BD disc is going to be any different than the one I have now.
