With the eighth Alien movie coming out in 2017, 20th Century Fox has designated Tuesday, April 26 as National Alien Day. To commemorate, Reebok will celebrate with the release of Alien Stompers, replicas of the red-and-white, high-top sneakers worn by Officer Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) in 1986's Aliens—it's the one where she meets the mother that makes Joan Crawford look like a fuzzy kitten. (Reebok will make a low-top version of the shoes, too.)
Local fans can celebrate with a screening of the original 1979 Alien, presented by the Idaho Horror Society to launch its new monthly series of classic horror movie screenings. The new shoes will retail for about $175; tickets to IHS' screening of Alien are only $5. Both kick ass.
