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?
After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.
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.
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
The saga continues 200 years after Ripley sacrificed herself for the sake of humanity. Her erstwhile employers long gone, this time it is the military that resurrects the one-woman killing machine through genetic cloning to extract the alien from within her, but during the process her DNA is fused with the queen and then the aliens escape. Now Ripley must decide where her allegiance lies.
The gaps between the four Alien films steadily decreased. There was seven years between the release of Alien (1979) and Aliens (1986), six between Aliens and Alien³ (1992), and five between Alien³ and Alien: Resurrection (1997). See more »
(at around 23 mins) In the fight in the gym, Ripley hits Christie with the basketball, knocking him to the floor. As he falls, he is no longer holding the barbell, but there is no sound of it hitting the floor. See more »
My mommy always said there were no monsters. No real ones. But there are.

Many of the creature effects casting and mold making crew. Some long standing, heavily contributing members, were omitted from the credits. Supposedly due to budget concerns. See more »
If it is entertainment, spectacle and thrill you are after then you will be disappointed - at least when you compare it with Alien and Aliens. This is a movie with a message - a deeply disturbing, pessimistic message delivered in a forceful way. It says that mankind has lost its way and that there is not much difference between us and those aliens.
I did not like the film when I first saw it - maybe because I was a blissfully ignorant optimist then. But it has grown on me over the years and has become one of my favorite movies.
Whether you like this movie or not - it will leave lasting impressions.
