Aliens (1986) Plot & Synopsis


Starring Lance Henriksen, Tom Woodruff Jr., Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Daniel Kash

Directed by James Cameron

James Cameron returned to direct the sequel to his Alien (1979) film with this Aliens (1986) which added action and adventure to this installment. Aliens had an estimated movie budget of $18.5 million and grossed $85.2 million at the box office. Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn, and Carrie Henn star in Aliens.

Synopsis: 57 years after Ellen Ripley had a close encounter with the reptilian alien creature from the first movie, she is called back, this time, to help a group of highly trained colonial marines fight off against the sinister extraterrestrials. But this time, the aliens have taken over a space colony on the moon LV-426. When the colonial marines are called upon to search the deserted space colony, they later find out that they are up against more than what they bargained for. Using specially modified machine guns and enough firepower, it's either fight or die as the space marines battle against the aliens. As the Marines do their best to defend themselves, Ripley must attempt to protect a young girl who is the sole survivor of the decimated space colony.

Tagline: This time there's more.

Storyline: Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
