Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products has kicked off an out-of-this-world celebration of the ALIEN franchise culminating with a special 24-hour, fan-focused social media event on April 26th – a nod to LV-426, the planet from the iconic ALIEN films. ALIEN DAY (#AlienDay426) will include a wide range of executions including nationwide screenings, never-before-seen consumer product activations and the launch of the ALIEN: Ultimate Trivia Challenge, allowing fans to test their ALIEN knowledge – with the chance to win memorable prizes every 42.6 minutes on Twitter.
ALIEN: Ultimate Trivia Challenge
The hallmark of ALIEN DAY will be a 24-hour Twitter contest. Every 42.6 minutes a new ALIEN trivia question will be presented via the official Alien Anthology twitter account, @AlienAnthology. In advance of the contest kickoff, beginning at 12 AM ET on April 26th, fans will need to pre-register their Twitter handle on the ALIEN Anthology website (http://AlienAnthology.com).
Each trivia question (approximately 35 in a 24-hour cycle) will have various prize packages from Twentieth Century Fox’s ALIEN franchise licensing partners including Upper Deck. To qualify to win the corresponding prize, participants must “Reply” to the initial “video question tweet,” correctly answer the question, and use the #AlienDay426 & #Contest hashtags. A winner (or “winners” when multiple prizes are offered) will be selected for each of the questions.
The ALIEN film series starring Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley) and directed by legendary auteurs Ridley Scott, James Cameron, David Fincher and Jean-Pierre Jeunet, is one of the most enduring horror sci-fi action franchises of all time. Winning multiple Academy Awards®, these incredible films have spawned countless consumer product lines and launches - from apparel to video games to comic books and more.
The highly-anticipated ALIEN: COVENANT, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Michael Fassbender, will be released in August 2017 by Twentieth Century Fox.
