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 an interview with IGN, when asked why David created the Xenomorphs, Ridley Scott stated he did so out of curiosity -- a callback to Charles Holloway's "'cuz we could" response to David's question of why humans created him; a rejection of humanity as inadequate and the Engineers for having "bleeped-up" by creating something that would ultimately turn against them (humans), and the desire to create a superior species to exterminate and replace them both. In the DVD version, the Director's Commentary has Scott discuss various behind the scenes details that weren't directly shown or were cut out -- like David drugging Oram to make him less cautious around the Xenomorph egg,note and the fact that the Xenomorphs can regenerate even if they're sliced to pieces.

In the second half of the movie, in the first scene where Daniels is sitting on the ground out in the rain by the laptop asking the crew on the ship to drop the cargo lift we can hear her voice loud and clear, but her mouth is not moving. See more »

Chinese version was heavily edited to get an approval from film censor's office. Beside violent scenes, almost any scene with an Alien was cut/shortened so you can barely see the creatures. The kiss between David and Walter was removed as well. See more »
An entertaining, brutal and very confusing sequel.
Okay, I'll tell the truth. I did not expect much from the sequel to Promethues, as it seemed that the level of the Alien films declined more and more, but this time, It was quite different.
The film has no doubt, the most beautiful views we see in the saga of Alien, has some incredible special effects, a very good script, spectacular performances (Fassbender is incredible) an entertaining plot, good sound design, great visuals And a lot, a lot of blood. I think it is the most bloody and violent film in the entire saga, just like the first time I saw Aliens, this one left me shocked and I try to see again and again.
I am a big fan of science fiction and horror, Alien is my favorite saga, I must say that I am very grateful to Scott for the fantastic thing that is this new movie, very incredible, no doubt, it was quite entertaining and intense to experiment it in cinema. But, perhaps one of its biggest mistakes is its strange and too confusing narrative on the part of the director; this film is supposed to be designed to give answers to past problems, to the questions that we have asked ourselves so much, however, it only ends up reeling over themselves and trying to add layer upon layer of complexity that simply end up being unnecessary overexposure.
Leaving that aside, it was a quite entertaining movie, with intense scenes and wonderful shots. I also highlight the incredible performance of Fassbender. Simple and fascinating I can describe it.
Something interesting that I should highlight; Hell, this movie is brutal.
