Two centuries after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone who must continue her war against the aliens.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet's long time partner, Marc Caro, with whom he had made Delicatessen (1991) and The City of Lost Children (1995), had no interest in taking part in the film. Caro did fly out to Los Angeles for several weeks to provide some costume and art direction designs.
My mommy always said there were no monsters. No real ones. But there are.
(at around 30 mins) When Ripley drives Call's knife through her wrist it does not get damaged by the acid in her blood even though it's soaked in it. In other scenes just a few drops of Ripley's blood burn through thick metal, which would suggest that the knife's blade should also get burnt. However, Call's knife may be made by some alloy, not just simple steel, but added with cadmium/vanadium/iridium that make it unassailable by acids.
Many of the creature effects casting and mold making crew. Some long standing, heavily contributing members, were omitted from the credits. Supposedly due to budget concerns.
$5,955,000 (Non-US) (14 November 1997)
