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.
The gaps between the four Alien films steadily decreased. There was seven years between the release of Alien (1979) and Aliens (1986), six between Aliens and Alien³ (1992), and five between Alien³ and Alien: Resurrection (1997).
My mommy always said there were no monsters. No real ones. But there are.
The figure 8 on Ripley's arm is missing in some scenes.
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.
In the Special Edition for the Alien Quadrilogy DVD, after landing on Earth Ripley and Call talk to each other in front of a landscape of a futuristic Paris, France.
