- Lt. Ellen Ripley faces off against the xenomorphs again in James Cameron's Aliens.
Decades after fleeing the Nostromo in Alien — and destroying it behind her — Lt. Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is found adrift in hypersleep in an escape shuttle with the ship’s only other survivor, orange tabby cat Jonesy. However, we wouldn’t have a sequel without one of our plucky protagonists getting thrust right back into the xenomorphs’ dual maws — and, as Ripley tells Jonesy, “You little shithead, you’re staying here.”
Thrown in with a unit of elite soldiers on an ostensible rescue mission, Ripley heads back to LV-426, the planetoid from which the Nostromo picked up its unwelcome passenger in the original film, now the location of a colony of human settlers.
Unsurprisingly, it’s “game over” soon after landing, and Ripley and the survivors must face off against a plurality of parasitic monsters.
