20th Century Fox and Tongal continue their "short-film festival" celebrating the 40th anniversary of Alien, this time with Alien: Ore, the fourth of six shorts.
Set deep in the mines of a mining planet, the short is the largest-scale film from the series to date, featuring a full-sized Xenomorph.
The short also harkens back to the origins of the Alien franchise with a heroine that you can root for at its center and an overwhelming sense of dread. Don't skip this one!
In Alien: Ore, written/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.”
The final two shorts will premiere on "Alien Day," April 26th.

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. Directed by Benjamin Howdeshell
ALIEN: Alone - 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.
