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.

Contains new interviews with some of the cast and crew, who share new insights about their experiences working on the film.

Includes many rare photographs and pieces of concept art from the Fox archives.

Also includes extracts from early versions of the script, illustrating the evolution of the story.

The definitive volume on the making of this much-loved movie from the author of The Making of Star Wars and The Making of Alien.

J. W. Rinzler has authored New York Times bestseller The Making of Star Wars, London Times bestseller The Complete Making of Indiana Jones, and the #1 best-selling graphic novel The Star Wars. He was the executive editor at Lucasfilm for 15 years. His most recent works are The Making of Planet of the Apes and ALL UP, an epic historical-fiction novel on the first Space Age.
