After her last encounter, Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a maximum security prison. When a series of strange and deadly events occur shortly after her arrival, Ripley realizes that she has brought along an unwelcome visitor.
200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone. Along with a crew of space pirates, she must again battle the deadly aliens and stop them from reaching Earth.
Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is the only survivor when she crash lands on Fiorina 161, a bleak wasteland inhabited by former inmates of the planet's maximum security prison. Once again, Ripley must face skepticism and the alien as it hunts down the prisoners and guards. Without weapons or modern technology of any kind, Ripley leads the men into battle against the terrifying creature.
Eric Red wrote an early rejected screenplay in which hordes of Aliens invade a space station colony modeled on 20th-century rural Kansas. At one point, fifty Aliens fuse together to form one big amorphous creature that tears through the station, and causes it to become a biomechanical fusion of Alien DNA, human flesh, steel girders and plates. While unused Alien 3 screenplays by William Gibson and Vincent Ward have gained significant cult following over the years, Red's version has been widely ridiculed for its B-horror movie tone, copious amounts of gore, and even a graphic, gratuitous sex scene. Sigourney Weaver called it "a real disaster, absolutely dreadful", and Red himself disowned it as a "piece of junk" that he wrote after "five weeks of intense, hysterical story conferences with the studio" who just wanted to rush a sequel into production. He also blamed producers Walter Hill and David Giler for giving him "no story or treatment or any real plan for the picture", and hampering his efforts by not wanting Sigourney Weaver to return.

The Blu-ray edition of the Assembly Cut of "Alien 3" (available as part of the 'Alien Anthology' box set or as separate edition) received additional work on the soundtrack. As a result, it features re-recorded dialogue that replaces the poor quality audio that appeared in many of the added scenes in the DVD version. Additionally, dialogue has been added to a few scenes that had none in the DVD version:
As the prisoners are dragging the EEV out of the ocean, they can be heard talking to each other and coordinating their efforts (dialogue was lifted from the theatrical version).
When prisoner Murphy is scrubbing the air duct and finds something moving inside a hole, he can be heard calling his dog Spike (dialogue was lifted from the theatrical version).
After prisoner Junior has lured the alien inside the toxic waste disposal unit and the other prisoners have closed the door, muffled screams and shouts are heard, interspersed with disturbing thuds and ripping sounds, which eventually die down as the others listen in.
**Sorry for some spelling-misstakes** This is the worst Alien-movie. Fincher tries to mix the dark feeling in the first movie with the 100 % action of ''Aliens''. I'm sorry Dave, it's simply doesn't work. OK, OK. I can admit it. It is entertaining at some points, but it is just because ''Alien 3'' is more of a copy of the other movies. Now, whats wrong with that picture? Everything is stolen from the other movies and you don't feel as amused of anything any more. The actors was really, really good but that can't save the bad script and the direction. I ( as a pure movielover ) will forever be gratefull for Fincher's job with ''Se7en''. This is though not one of his better movies.
