In 2019, Ridley Scott’s Alien will celebrate the 40th anniversary of its theatrical release. Memory reveals the chilling, untold origins of Ridley Scott’s cinematic masterpiece, rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythology, underground comics, parasitology, H.P. Lovecraft’s weird fiction, the art of Francis Bacon, and the symbiotic genius of Dan O’Bannon (writer), H.R. Giger (designer), and, of course, Ridley Scott.
Discover a treasure trove of unreleased materials from the O’Bannon and Giger estates, including original story notes, rejected storyboards, sketches and concept art. View behind-the-scenes photographs and footage and Dan O’Bannon’s never-before-seen, original 29-page script from 1971, titled “Memory”.
