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.
Charles S. Dutton,
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.
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.
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.
Almost eleven years after the disastrous expedition to the distant moon LV-223, the deep-space colonisation vessel Covenant, with more than 2,000 colonists in cryogenic hibernation, is on course for the remote planet Origae-6 with the intention to build a new world. Instead, a rogue transmission entices the crew to a nearby habitable planet which resembles Earth. The unsuspecting crewmembers of the Covenant will have to cope with biological foes beyond human comprehension. Ultimately, what was intended as a peaceful exploratory mission, will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation in uncharted space.Written by
In the novelization of the film, the Egg sacks are much smaller in appearance, resembling mould. See more »
The landing crew are shown walking down the ramp and wading through water upon landing; when running back to the ship the land is dry and they walk onto the boarding ramp on dry ground, when the camera angle changes we see water around the ramp again. See more »
First of all, you have to see Prometheus(2012) beforehand. David's plot line is pretty confusing audiences with Walter's one. Audiences can not say which one is David or Walter. This is the biggest issue of this film positively and negatively.
In the 21st. century, the good is weaker than evil like in this film. The story starts when the new captain takes initiative to distract the planed course of colonial voyage. They are forced to go to unknown planet where evil David and his creatures are waiting for the victims.
Daniels is our generation's Ripley. She is also doomed to the tragedy after she defeats aliens.
Bishop-like Walter is gone, there is the worst and most intelligent android David. This is a typical character of successful people who deceive others for their own cause not for social justice.
Alien embodies inner corporate politics of today. You can see Covenant as your company, then you can more clearly understand core thought behind this story. It is not about outer space or ancient era.
This franchise was originally created from "Planet of the Vampires"(1965) which directed by father of Italian Horror film, Mario Bava. Creatures are different but its plots and the space shuttle are resembled. Mario Bava's contribution and influence are huge on this Hollywood horror franchises.
