Six decades after her brush with the man-hunting xenomorph, the hypersleeping Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is found in space by a salvage ship. To her horror she learns that a human colony has been founded on the same planet where the alien was first encountered... and all contact has been lost. Time for Ripley to lock and load with Michael Biehn's gung-ho platoon of space marines. Where Ridley Scott's original dripped with suspense, James Cameron's sequel blazes with unrelenting, sense-battering action. Rise and shine, people, for one of the most breath-taking sequels ever.
