These are two wonderful pieces of marketing.  They don’t shove the fact that they are advertisements down your throat; they don’t treat the viewer like an idiot.  Also, they can stand alone as complete units of entertainment, interesting to someone who may not be at all familiar with the vision of the future created by director Ridley Scott and writers Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett.

 

Of further interest to Ridley Scott and Alien fans might be this seven-part documentary of the original film (Russian subtitles are, unfortunately, hardcoded into the video):
 

 
I highly recommend giving this a watch.  It details the various artistic visions which made up the film Alien.
