Director James Cameron had some legendary shoes to fill when he took on the daunting task of filming a sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece “Alien.” But in 1986, Cameron rose to the occasion and crafted a cinematic juggernaut in “Aliens” that stands as one of the best follow-ups in Hollywood history and launched an entire franchise.

Last year marked the 35th anniversary of “Aliens,” which assaulted theaters beginning on July 18, 1986 and went on to storm the summer box office with a worldwide take of $183 million. A series of sequels, books, comics and video games would follow (check out our favorite Aliens movies ranked worst to best). To celebrate that legacy, Printed in Blood and Titan Books have now teamed up to honor “Aliens’” big birthday with this month’s release of the “Aliens Artbook.”
