The bitch is back.
David Fincher's directorial debut is the third Alien movie, taking over the helm previously held by Ridley Scott and James Cameron.... More
Ejected from the Sulaco spaceship in Cameron's Aliens, Ripley (the inimitable Sigourney Weaver) crashes into a penal colony planet. Contending with the murderers and rapists may seem a welcome break for Ripley, but the savage alien life form is soon stalking her again having arrived unknowingly attached to her escape craft. Finding its way to a feral dog, the alien is able to breed and renew its killing spree.
Alien 3 was a troubled production. Various filmmakers where attached, famously including New Zealand's Vincent Ward (who developed a version which ultimately fell through - named by Time magazine as one of the 'Greatest Sci Fi Films Never Made'). Ward retains a story credit.Hide
