After being in hypersleep for 57 years, Ripley (played again by Sigourney Weaver) is found by a deep salvage ship. After a while of being on the ship, the company blame her for the loss of the Nostromo and she loses her officer’s license in the process. She soon learns that the planet where the original alien was found has been turned into a colony for people. When the company loses contact with the colony, Ripley is persuaded to go to go on a mission to the planet, but this time she’s not going along as a few marines armed with weaponry are also going. When they reach the planet, they explore and find signs that there was a struggle at the colony and the only survivor is a young girl called Newt. After their first encounter with the aliens, the marines soon find out that the hunters have become the hunted. When their pickup ship is destroyed, they seek refuge in a compound. From here on in, the mission turns into a life and death situation and there are a lot more thrills along the way…
