A second short film for Alien 40th Anniversary is already here, called Specimen.  Directed by Kelsey Taylor, the synopsis for “Specimen” reads: “It’s the night shift in a colony greenhouse, and Julie, a botanist, does her best to contain suspicious soil samples that have triggered her sensitive lab dog. Despite her best efforts the lab unexpectedly goes into full shutdown and she is trapped inside. Little does she know, an alien specimen has escaped the mysterious cargo, and a game of cat and mouse ensues as the creature searches for a host.”   20th Fox has partnered with Tongal, to celebrate the 40th Anniversary with 5 short films, leading up to Alien Day on April 26.
