Description

Audible is bringing William Gibson’s uncovered Alien III script to life in audio for the first time, to mark the 40th Anniversary of the birth of the Alien franchise.  

Alongside a full cast, Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen reprise their iconic roles as Corporal Hicks and Bishop from the 1986 film Aliens.   

Father of cyberpunk William Gibson’s original script for Alien III, written in 1987 as a sequel to Aliens, never made it to our screens, although it went on to achieve cult status among fans as the third instalment that might have been after being leaked online. 

This terrifying, cinematic multicast dramatisation - directed by the multi-award-winning Dirk Maggs - is the chance to experience William Gibson’s untold story and its terrifying, claustrophobic and dark encounters between humans and aliens, as a completely immersive audio experience. 

The story begins with the Sulaco on its return journey from LV-426. On board the military ship are the cryogenically frozen skeleton crew of that film’s survivors: Ripley, Hicks, Newt and Bishop. 

We travel aboard and hear an alarm blare. Our heroes are no longer alone....

Starring: Tom Alexander, Barbara Barnes, Michael Biehn, Cliff Chapman, Samantha Coughlan, Ben Cura, Dar Dash, Harry Ditson, Mairead Doherty, Lance Henriksen, Graham Hoadly, Lorelei King, Laurel Lefkow, Martin McDougall, Sarah Pitard, Michael Roberts, David Seddon, Andrew James Spooner, Siri Steinmo, Dai Tabuchi, Keith Wickham, Rebecca Yeo.

A fitting continuation

This was a great one, want more like it. It really caught the feel of the Aliens universe. While there were some predictable plot devices it was true to the source. I wish this one had been made into the movie rather than what we got.

This should have been the movie that got made.

The voice acting is fantastic! Great sound effects and score. I would have loved to see this as Alien 3. Hopefully Audible will complete the planned two sequels for this with the original actors and current voice actors.

Good production, weak source material

So, yeah. The story is all over the place and very inncoherent. The choises Gibson did with the xenomorphs are... odd. The motivation of the main (human) villain is nonexistant. Overall - I'm glad they didn't shoot this as a movie. say what you will about the current Alien 3 - it is way better than this mess (I am actually a huge fan of it).

All said: really glad Audible did this dramatization, it's a cool idea and us Alien-fans are greatful for having a version of a could-have-been script, nevermind the quality of the story.

Acting is top notch, glad they got two of the original actors to reprise their roles. Good production, good (albeit somewhat overly fastpaced) direction.

Way better plot than the movie we got.

This was closer to the Aliens plot than the crappy movie we got. Very enjoyable mini show on it's own.

Excellent story, well casted!

This story would have made a far better film than the one that we were given. Lots of surprises are in store for new listeners who have been long time fans of the Alien franchise.

Fantastic narration. Typical alien plot.

I got this as a freebie. Maybe I'm biased because alien books aren't my go-to for reading/listening, but nonetheless, it was good. The narration was absolutely phenomenal with extra noises just like I was watching a movie with my eyes closed lol
There weren't any surprises or unique twists that could have possibly added to the story but it's a short story, so that probably would have been difficult.
Overall, good read if you like fiction, but I probably wouldn't listen again if I knew how the story went.

The Alien III that never was!

A tremendous effort by a talented cast, including Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen returning from Aliens, brings William Gibson's unused masterpiece to life!

Outstanding!

Nach River of Pain und Out of the Shadows, ein weiteres sehr gelungenes Audiobook zum ersten Alien-Universum. Es ist toll die Originalstimmen von Hicks und Bishop (die für den schwächeren dritten Kinofilm einfach abgemurkst wurden) wieder zu hören! Und auch die Stimmen von Ripley und Newt sind gut gelungen. Das gleiche gilt auch für die Soundeffekte. Was für ein Film aus Gibsons-Screenplay geworden wäre, werden wir nie erfahren, die Audiobookadaptation jedoch ist definitiv gelungen. Für alle Fans der Originalfilmserie ein Muss!

This is no Ripley-Action-Fest

Lance is not the youthful Bishop he once was. The same goes for Michael Biehn/Hicks. But that was expectable. Time has passed and we are thankful for bringing us this story.
The story is entertaining and much more engaging than reading the comic.
<spoiler>i liked bishops mission-report.<spoiler>

i gave 4 stars in general because the audiodrama is split into 2 chapters: why? there were so many points that would warrant additional chapter splits!
4 stars for the speakers, because one speaker sounded too bored while recording.
4 stars for the story: not enough ripley
