Robin's 'F**k Batman' Titans Trailer

Celebrate LV-426 / #ALIENDAY With @drafthouse & @MondoNews

ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE, 20th CENTURY FOX AND MONDO PARTNER FOR SPECTACULAR "LV-426 / ALIEN DAY" CELEBRATIONS IN NEW YORK CITY, LOS ANGELES, AND CHICAGO

ALIENS' female leads take center stage with Sigourney Weaver joining NY screening and Jenette Goldstein & Carrie Henn leading LA talent to mark chest-bursting 4.26.16 date - plus exclusive new Mondo T-shirt and line of official merchandise

While it may be true that in space no one can hear you scream, they will be heard loud and clear on April 26, 2016 as Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo join in on 20th Century Fox's nationwide celebration of LV-426 / ALIEN DAY / 4.26.16 - a date paying tribute, of course to the desolate LV-426 featured in both films.

While the Alien Queen instantly became the stuff of nightmares, it is the three female leads who hold iconic status with fans everywhere. In response, Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo are pleased to announce that star and Academy Award nominated and Golden Globe winner Sigourney Weaver - Ellen Ripley herself - will be on hand for a screening of ALIENS at New York City's Town Hall. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Jenette Goldstein - AKA the tough-as-nails Private Vasquez - and Carrie Henn - the indomitable Newt - will be in attendance for ALIENS at The Theatre at the Ace Hotel - just around the corner from where Alamo's first LA location is now under construction. And last but not least, Alamo and Mondo will co-present a terrifying ALIEN + ALIENS double feature at Chicago's beloved arthouse titan, The Music Box Theatre.

Each of these LV-426 / ALIEN DAY / 4.26.16 screenings will be a unique event, featuring a host of Xenomorph mayhem, including custom video pre shows and a for-sale Mondo ALIEN T-shirt designed by Jay Shaw exclusively for LV-426 / Alien Day screenings.

"We're all massive fans of the ALIEN franchise so being able to host these epic screenings with Sigourney herself in New York, Jenette and Carrie in Los Angeles before we even have our own theaters open in those cities is just insane," says Alamo VP of Special Events, Henri Mazza. "These are three of the most iconic and badass female protagonists ever committed to film, to celebrate ALIENS' 30th anniversary with them is a real honor."

Mondo, the acclaimed collectible art boutique, created an exclusive, limited run T-shirt that pays tribute, of course, to the inimitable Ellen Louise Ripley. The shirt will only be available at the April 26 screenings - and after that, they're gone.

"As Ripley prepares for her final escape in Ridley Scott's 1979 masterpiece ALIEN, imagine the central computer is able to send one last transmission back home," Mondo's Creative Director Jay Shaw, explains of the shirt's concept. "This message might've been a warning that one of the 'expendable crew' has escaped with full knowledge of the company's nefarious plans. Mondo's screen-printed shirt features an image of everyone's favorite space badass from that final transmission."

In addition to the Ripley shirt, Mondo will be offering an expanded line of products including posters, vinyl and apparel inspired by the property through their website on April 26, andthe lobby of Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin will be home to an ALIENS pop-up store from April 22 through May 1.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
