200 years after Alien 3, Ellen Ripley re-emerges (understandably changed) alongside a group of space pirates trying to save the Earth from an imminent alien invasion. When Winona Ryder appeared in the Alien universe, audiences were pleasantly surprised (almost as much as they were when she showed up in Stranger Things). Directed by French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amélie Poulain, La Cité des enfants perdus), the fourth instalment in the original series has some fun with the franchise’s tropes. It also proves that “Weaver and Ryder against the aliens” is a fine premise for a movie.
