Charles S. Dutton,
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.
In 2018, a mysterious new weapon in the war against the machines, half-human and half-machine, comes to John Connor on the eve of a resistance attack on Skynet. But whose side is he on, and can he be trusted?
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 look of the legs does not correspond between the practical and computer-generated Aliens; the CG ones have an extra joint at the ankle, while the practical Alien shot by Vriess is shown with human looking ankles (i.e. without an extra joint) as it is seen crouched on the grate from below. Also, it lacks the long toes of the CG Aliens, instead having more human-like feet. 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 »
I watched all the series of Alien and find that my favorites are Alien 2 and 4. Alien 2 has more action than the first movie, as to Alien 4 - this is something! I love horror movies made by people with sense of humor. Ron Perlman's Johner is a masterpiece but unfortunately if three previous movies were about Ripley, in Alien 4, due to Johner, she is not leading. It doesn't spoil the movie but changes it a bit. I can't wait to see Alien 5 one day!!!
