New Release: Alien Autopsy DVD

Alien Autopsy movie sceneThe writer of How to Train Your Dragon, William Davies, explores the question of whether we’re alone in Alien Autopsy, issued on DVD on Sept. 21, 2010, from Warner Home Video.

The 2006 science-fiction movie, which was released in theater in the U.K. and will make its premiere in the U.S. on DVD, follows two guys who believe they have film evidence of an alien cover up and government conspiracy of the Roswell incident. The London lads are thrust into a media frenzy and get the unwanted attention of the world’s biggest super power.

It’s based on the real-life events of July 1947 when the U.S. military issued a press release saying an “unidentified flying object” had crashed outside Roswell, New Mexico, then retracted the story four hours later. The retraction fueled speculation of a conspiracy, and rumors flew about an autopsy carried out on alien life forms.

Alien Autopsy DVD boxThe comedy, helmed by British TV director Jonny Campbell, stars British TV entertainers Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly making their big screen debut. Bill Pullman (Independence Day, Peacock) and Harry Dean Stanton (TV’s Big Love) give supporting performances.

Priced at $14.98, the DVD comes with these extras:

  • deleted scenes with optional commentary by director, Jonny Campbell
  • alternate opening
  • “The Making of Ant & Dec’s Alien Autopsy
  • outtakes
  • original trailer
