Willis Museum - Alien Invasion - Basingstoke, Saturday 30th July to Saturday 3rd September
Ever wondered how thrilling it would be to come face-to-face with a Martian? Or how about Darth Vader, or even The Predator?
Well, visitors will find out when they attend the remarkable one-off "Alien Invasion" exhibition, which brings together an army of famous - and infamous - aliens, monsters, props and costumes from some of Hollywood's biggest sci-fi blockbusters.
The collection of fabulous movie props and costumes is guaranteed to scare - and thrill. On show are a number of creatures from the massive hit Aliens, which starred Sigourney Weaver. And it's not just the ordinary aliens; visitors will have the opportunity to get close to the queen alien and the terrifying "face hugger" - if they dare.
And not to be left out, Predator is also a favourite of the exhibition. He's not pretty!
However, full size Martians from Mars Attack and the horrific alien host from the X-files movie aside, there are some cute aliens, too. The cuddly Ewok will be there along with Jawas, Yoda and Chewbacca from Star Wars. But be warned, there is also an early Darth Vader costume and a storm trooper or two hanging around. Though Marvin the Martian should keep things in order.
Star attraction has to be the massive transporter spaceship model from the opening scene of the Lost In Space movie.
And it's free.
