Sigourney Weaver was back as Ripley in a skit for the late-night talk and news satire show ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.’ The comedy short recreates the scene in Aliens where Ripley chases ‘Newt’ into the air ducts.
Rather than ‘Newt,’ Ripley is chasing after Samantha Bee, who is hiding from covering the upcoming 2020 US presidential election. The skit kicked off the ‘Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner event hosted by Bee.
“In space, no one can hear you scream…about the importance of journalism. Intrepid travelers Sigourney Weaver, Katie Couric, Ali Velshi, and Rebecca Traister will protect it with their lives. Directed by Allana Harkin. Produced by Allana Harkin with Julie Levitsky. Edited by Jesse Coane.”
Weaver shared a photo with the cast playing the Colonial Marines on the set recreating the Hadley’s Hope colony corridor. It looks like they all had a great time.

Weaver also played Ripley in another skit for ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ back in 2017. Even if it’s for a parody, it’s always good to see Sigourney Weaver back as Ripley.
