I can't get anything other than Game Over, Man!  :(

Just a guess, but I suspect every single result is 'game over man'.

A week from today (Fri - 4/26) is Alien Day 2019 and Super7 is releasing these new Alien ReAction Figures inspired by original Bill Gold 1979 concept poster art not used for the film's release. These will be available online next Friday!




"here are things so terrifying, they only exist in a nightmare... or outer space." A week from today (Friday - 4/26) is Alien Day 2019 and to commemorate LV-426, Super7 will be dropping these exclusive Alien ReAction Figures: First is the terrifying Xenomorph in a clear glitter space blue with matching card back."




"Then there is the doomed Nostromo crew member Kane in a horrifying red with matching card back. Both of these figures and their card art were inspired by the awesome original 1979 Alien concept poster art by Bill Gold that was not used for the film's release. These will be available online in the Super7 webstore and at our San Francisco and San Diego stores. See you next Friday!"

With the classic as inspiration, each of these original shorts capture iconic franchise moments and have unleashed the potential of the Alien universe to thrilling new heights.

Alien: Containment - Written and Directed by Chris Reading

Four survivors find themselves stranded aboard a small escape pod in deep space. Trying to piece together the details around the outbreak that led to their ship’s destruction, they find themselves unsure to trust whether or not one of them might be infected.

Alien: Specimen - Directed by Kelsey Taylor

It’s the night shift in a colony greenhouse, and Julie, a botanist, does her best to contain suspicious soil samples that have triggered her sensitive lab dog. Despite her best efforts the lab unexpectedly goes into full shutdown and she is trapped inside. Little does she know, an alien specimen has escaped the mysterious cargo, and a game of cat and mouse ensues as the creature searches for a host.

Alien: Night Shift - Written and Directed by Aidan Brezonick

When a missing space trucker is discovered hungover and disoriented, his co-worker suggests a nightcap as a remedy. Near closing time, they are reluctantly allowed inside the colony supply depot where the trucker’s condition worsens, leaving a young supply worker alone to take matters into her own hands.

Alien: Ore - Written and Directed by the Spear Sisters

As a hard-working miner of a planet mining colony, Lorraine longs to make a better life for her daughter and grandchildren. When her shift uncovers the death of a fellow miner under mysterious circumstances, Lorraine is forced to choose between escape or defying management orders and facing her fears to fight for the safety of her family.

Alien: Alone - Written and Directed by Noah Miller

Hope, an abandoned crew member aboard the derelict chemical hauler Otranto, has spent a year trying to keep her ship and herself alive as both slowly fall apart. After discovering hidden cargo, she risks it all to power up the broken ship in search of human life.

Alien: Harvest - Directed by Benjamin Howdeshell

The surviving crew of a damaged deep-space harvester have minutes to reach the emergency evacuation shuttle. A motion sensor is their only navigation tool leading them to safety while a creature in the shadows terrorizes the crew. However, the greatest threat might have been hiding in plain sight all along.
