Fifty-seven years after Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) survives a terrifying ordeal, her escape vessel is found drifting across the galaxy while she is in hyper sleep. Back on earth, her story about an alien encounter on the planet, LV-426 is met with skepticism. The Company orders the colonists who have settled on LV-426 to investigate, however, all communication with them is lost. The Company enlists Ripley to aid a team of high-tech experienced space marines on a rescue mission to LV-426 to find out if there are aliens or survivors. As the mission unfolds, Ripley is forced to come to grips with her worst nightmare and discovers that the worst is yet to come.
