Released in 1979, Alien has become one of the most acclaimed examples of the genre and still regularly features in various publications' top ranks of thriller, horror, sci-fi and action movies.

Sigourney Weaver's first major role and portrayal of Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley has influenced a generation of filmmakers and writers now confident of placing women in strong lead action roles. The Alien creature was designed by Swiss surrealist painter HR Giger, a cult figure himself. Consequently the film won the Oscar in 1979 for Best Visual effects.

In 2002, Alien was deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the National Film Preservation Board of the United States and was inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for historical preservation. Since its release it has spawned a vast movie and related products franchise.
