Two weeks ago, the book 'Alien Vault: The Definitive Story Behind the Film,' was released. In it, author Ian Nathan takes an in-depth look at the 1979 sci-fi flick, with never-before-scene set photos, storyboards and interviews.

Empire Magazine
was lucky enough to get their hands on 10 of these rare images, including a discarded attempt at an 'Alien' movie poster, a new view of the alien popping out of Kane's chest during dinner and blueprints for the spaceship Nostromo.

You can check out one of the photos below. Head on over to Empire to see the entire set.
