The planet from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough?

James Cameron makes everything bigger, badder, and with more firepower. Two decades before he revolutionized 3D technology, he ignited the screen with a new take on the Alien saga. Fifty-seven years after Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) first encountered the egg-hatching creatures as a crew member of the Nostromo, she is sent back to planet LV-426 with a marine guard in to to try and figure out what happened to a terraforming colony that had taken up residence on the doomed planet. Ripley and the Space Marines will have to blast their way through an acid dripping horde if they hope to survive.
