Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report Collectors Edition Book
“For hundreds of years now, scientists at the Weyland-Yutani Corporation have been monitoring the behavior of an alien life-form so powerful that its potential for military application appears limitless. Although all attempts to harness the beast’s abilities have ended in appalling bloodshed, the acquisition of the Xenomorph remains a priority. As such, Weyland-Yutani has granted you access to their detailed files on the alien in the hope that you will be able to help capture and subjugate one of these fascinating yet deadly creatures.”
The Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report Collectors Edition Book is a brilliant case study on the history of the franchise, from concept art to in-depth explorations of Xenomorphs. This book even dives into characters, vehicles, weapons, and more details and secrets from the iconic film.
