If you have any taste in movies at all then you know that James Cameron’s Aliens is a kick-ass action/sci-fi movie that never gets old. You should also know that Michael Biehn, who played Cpl. Hicks in Aliens, has a resume filled with fun and memorable flicks. The Terminator, Timebomb, The Abyss, The Seventh Sign, K2, The Rock, Tombstone, and Planet Terror are just a few of his awesomely entertaining movies. Sure he also starred in Take Me Home Tonight, but a man’s gotta put food on the table.
Well if you love the guy as much as you should then you’ll be excited to know he’s hosting a double feature at the Alamo Drafthouse on Saturday the 14th. That’s tomorrow! It’s also in Austin Texas, so if you’re not geographically located nearby you should probably stop reading now. (In fact, go ahead and read this instead.)
And we’ve got a free pair of tickets to both screenings to give away! Check below to see how you can win, but do it fast as the contest ends at midnight tonight (PST).
The screenings will be taking place at Austin’s Alamo S. Lamar theater with Aliens playing at 7pm and The Divide following at 1155pm. Both films include an audience Q&A with Biehn, so start planning those queries now. Ask him what it’s like to touch Sigourney Weaver! Or what he thought about the opening to Alien 3! Or about the challenge of directing! Or if he’s related to Orson Bean!
So how do you win? We’ll make it easy since the contest ends tonight at midnight. Leave a comment below with your favorite Biehn role… that isn’t from a James Cameron film. Boom!
Check out the official announcement from the Alamo Theater below!
With Cpl. Dwayne Hicks, MR. MICHEAL BIEHN, in attendance to entertain your questions and show you what a real fucking man looks like. That’s right! The genre legend, star of some of the best sci-fi and action films of all time–THE TERMINATOR, ALIENS, TOMBSTONE, THE ABYSS, GRINDHOUSE and many more–will be screening THE DIVIDE and ALIENS at the Alamo Drafthouse with an audience Q&A!
Fifty-seven years after her ordeal with an extraterrestrial creature, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during her hypersleep, only to discover human settlements have popped up on the alien planet, LV-426. Ripley returns to the planet to help out the cocksure, tough as nails space Marines investigate the sudden break in communications from LV-426. AND THEN SH*T GETS REAL. James Cameron picked up where Ridley Scott left off and then turned it up to 11. You will see aliens come out of the walls and Bill Paxton scream, “THAT’S IT! GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER…” And of course, shots will be fired and things will explode. So stay frosty marine, and grab a ticket to the all-out, balls-to-wall masterpiece that is ALIENS.”
