Sigourney Weaver returns from the first movie "Alien," in which she played the character Ripley. Ripley is the only survivor of a previous attack by the aliens. This time she is here to guide a crew that is landing on a space colony, where the aliens are thought to have attacked the people there. It isn't long before things get out of control. Lots of special effects.
