BOGNYT: “The Making of Aliens” af J.W. Rinzler

Jeg er lidt tidligt ude med denne nyhed, der først rammer markedet den 5. maj 2020. Men så har man noget at se frem til, og det er ikke så skidt! Det er – igen, igen – den myreflittige J.W. Rinzler, der er på færde, og denne gang er han gået i kødet på én af filmhistoriens bedste opfølgere, nemlig James Camerons “Aliens” fra 1986. Bogen, der udgives af Titan Books, udkommer i hardback, er på 300 sider og måler 27×30 centimeter.

Forlaget skriver følgende om bogen:

As one of the most highly regarded movie sequels of all time, Aliens quickly embedded itself in the minds of cinemagoers around the world when it was released in 1986. Driven by the singular vision of director James Cameron and guided by producer Gale Ann Hurd, its relentless action and unforgettable characters helped cement its place as an undisputed classic of 1980s cinema.

The Making of Aliens tells the complete story of how Cameron and Hurd, together with their immensely talented cast and crew, brought heroine Ellen Ripley back to the big screen—and upped the stakes by introducing a whole army of aliens for her to face. Interviews with the cast and crew, alongside revealing photography and fascinating concept art, illustrate the film’s eventful journey from its beginnings as a sequel that nobody wanted to make through to its transformation into one of the highest-grossing blockbusters of the decade.
