One of the huge blockbuster movies that made a strong impression on me growing in the 1980s was James Cameron’s ALIENS. It was scary with kick-ass action, had a memorable cast of actors and just a great science fiction storyline. With a collection of artwork, on-set location pictures and behind-the-scenes photographs, author Simon Ward takes us ALIENS fans on a journey with ALIENS – The Set Photography by Titan Books.
The cast and crew interviews talk about working on set, building this world of LV-426, the aliens and working with director James Cameron. Along with the quotes, author Simon Ward gathers many behind-the-scenes photographs and artwork from the movie.
I really enjoyed reading the thoughts and the point of view from actors Carrie Henn (Newt) and Jeanette Goldstein (Private Vasquez). I fantasized about being a Space Marine because of this movie! There’s also lots of cool on-set photographs that really capture the essence of this sequel and Cameron’s sci-fi vision. If you’re cinema buff and ALIENS fans then the ALIENS – The Set Photography artbook is what you need to buy and put into your library collection.
