"A really nice companion piece that bridges the original film with the new sequel while providing plenty of behind-the-scenes sneak peeks and concepts." - Midroad Movie Review"Once again Titan Books has shown why its the go to publisher for art books for films." - Entertainment Buddha "Tons of great content for the average science fiction fan with a lot of great photos and concept art.
Venue: Atomic Moo." - Atomic Moo "This book is so tightly crammed full of extraterrestrial goodness, the layout is lush, detailed and really quite the treat for all film buffs out there." - Shock Til You Drop "I do like the added touch of using David Levinson POV to guide us through ID4, the aftermath and Resurgence in the book." - Retrenders "If you dig spaceships this is can't miss coffee table book reading." - Adventures In Poor Taste "Makes for a nice companion" - The Film Stage "There are some gorgeous Resurgence concepts for things like the AI ship, the final battle with the Alien Queen, and various dogfight scenes, but my favorite parts of the book are the classified case files, written in the voice of David Levinson's character, that recap a full history of the first alien invasion" - VG Blogger

Furthermore, parts of this book touch on some of the lore surrounding the movies which is always interesting, and this will definitely prove useful to those who have not read any of the extended universe novels.
The images are crisp and the info dances between being "in-universe" (as if the characters from the films have written it) and a traditional informative approach. It's crammed with loads of set photos and concept art from the first film as well as the second film. Really good stuff, I'm very impressed.

I thought it was a little weird that they would release an Art and Making Of book to a sequel rather than the film that came before it, but to my surprise, it featured some production pictures of the first film as well.
It's also great to get a better look at the Alien Queen in this book rather than the trailers they've been showing her not in her entirety.
I for one am actually excited to see this movie, even if there is no Will Smith :)
