Alien Day seeks to cherish the groundbreaking "Alien" film franchise and also appreciate the broader sci-fi genre and its impact on our culture. Fans engage in various activities such as watching movies and TV shows, participating in social media discussions, attending events and conventions, and sharing their personal collections of memorabilia.
The origins of Alien Day can be traced back to the 1979 release of Ridley Scott's seminal horror-sci-fi film, "Alien", which has inspired a total of six movies in the franchise. Canadians, like many audiences across the globe, have embraced the "Alien" series and the genre it represents. Contributions from Canadian actors, writers, and directors have played a significant role in shaping the world of science fiction. For instance, Canadian actor William Shatner's portrayal of Captain Kirk in the Star Trek series is a prominent example of the country's impact on sci-fi culture.
In Canada, celebrations of Alien Day are often informal and vary from location to location. Some Canadians gather with friends and family to watch the "Alien" films or engage in the broader genre by watching other sci-fi classics. In recent years, local events and conventions held in cities such as Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver have included Alien Day panels, screenings and discussions, providing an opportunity for fans to come together and share their passion. Alien Day takes place every year on April 26th, with the date being chosen as a nod to LV-426, the moon in the Alien film where the infamous Xenomorph was first encountered.
