Weaver talked about having experienced seeing a screening of Aliens at the Alamo Drafthouse and likened it to a “‘a horrific sing-along’ (in a good way.)”, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“One of my great moments in … life, frankly, was by the time we got to that line, the whole audience yelled it with Ripley.”

Also, in celebration of Aliens’ 30th anniversary, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will be making available the Blu-ray and Digital HD edition on Sept. 13. A new addition of an interview with Cameron will be included.

Pre-orders will be taken at Fox’s Comic Con booth. The first 250 orders will receive a lithograph of Ripley in the clutches of the Alien Queen.
