200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone who must continue her battle against the aliens. Along with a crew of space pirates, Ripley must also prevent the deadly aliens from reaching Earth.
Sigourney Weaver signed on to the film largely because of one scene in particular - when Ripley 8 encounters her previous 7 aborted genetic incarnations.
My mommy always said there were no monsters. No real ones. But there are.
While playing basketball, Ripley's nails are shown wearing dark varnish, and are very short - this means she can spin the ball on one finger. When she inspects Call's gunshot wound following the ambush and Wren's double cross, her nails are green and almost talon-like.
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.
