SFX 165 Whose Side Are You On? [UPDATED]

SFX has got a special Christmas present for you... and it's all wrapped up and everything!

SFX is celebrating the release of Aliens vs Predator: Requiem on the big screen by teaming up with 20th Century Fox to offer three different covers featuring the universe’s meanest extraterrestrial beasties.

Aliens vs Predator: Requiem hits UK cinemas on Friday 18 January when the two iconic screen monsters crash into a tiny US town, where the residents get caught up in the gory battle and have to band together to stand any chance of survival.

On sale Wednesday 19 December , SFX165 will give readers who pick the issue up either an Alien or a Predator cover (see above) - but you won’t know which until you’ve opened up the glorious, shiny foil wrapper it comes in (see below right)! Subscribers will receive an exclusive third cover image (below left).

Please note: subscribers will get their copies on the same day as it goes on sale, not early this month, because some of this month's content is so exciting and exclusive that we have to abide by an embargo on the release date. So everybody needs to look out for their copies, in the post and on the shelf, on Wednesday 19 December.

Each copy also comes with a free Battlestar Galactica foil poster - that's a huge metallic picture of a cylon! It's shiny.

Inside the magazine, SFX goes behind the scenes and takes a special look at Aliens vs Predator: Requiem, including cast and crew interviews, as well as photos of the monsters being created. Of course, there's all your favourite regulars, including interviews, TV reviews and more.
