Aliens: The Official Movie Magazine is a 1986 promotional magazine containing articles about the film Aliens, published by Starlog Press. The magazine includes an adaptation of the film in text form, along with articles on several of the principle actors and crew and their roles in the film. Alongside the written information, the magazine contains a wealth of exclusive behind the scenes images.

Originally published in 1986, it is now available to read in its entirety for free via the Internet Archive.


The bulk of the magazine consists of a "Mission Report", a 23-page adaptation of the film's story. The remainder features profile pieces on several of the key cast members, namely Sigourney Weaver (Ripley), Michael Biehn (Corporal Hicks), Paul Reiser (Burke) and Lance Henriksen (Bishop), and behind the scenes interviews with director James Cameron, producer Gale Anne Hurd and special effects artist Stan Winston. Throughout, the magazine is filled with numerous behind the scenes images and promotional stills, including photographs from scenes eventually deleted from the final cut of the movie, such as the Burke cocoon sequence.
