The Alien Franchise Gets Its Own Holiday Called “Alien Day” on April 26th

Just in case you’re not aware, American culture has made it an official mission to make every single day of the year some kind of “day.”  And when I write “day” I mean that each day on our calendar has some kind of theme.  Not only do we have our National holidays but there are a myriad of themed days like “National Puppy Day,” “Earth Day,”  “Pancake Day,”  “Cancer Awareness Day,” and the list goes on.

Now fans of Alien can look forward to “Alien Day” on April 26th.   To celebrate Ridley Scott’s space-horror franchise, a press release has dubbed April 26 as Alien Day from now until perpetuity. Why April 26? Die-hard Alien fans know that the moon of Acheron, home of the Xenomorphs, is classified as LV-426. It’s sort of the way that Star Wars Day is on May 4, as a way to say “May the fourth be with you.”

The inaugural Alien Day will feature a live-streamed Q&A with the cast of Covenant, along with nationwide screenings of the original 1979 classic Alien and Scott’s 2012 prequel Prometheus. You can find out which Regal Theaters will host the screenings on Alien Universe. (via Looper)
