Aliens

Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is back after 57 movie years, but her fate is linked to the mysterious planet and species from which she escaped. With a squad of Colonial Marines and a little girl, Ripley proves that maternal instincts aren’t always soft and fluffy. Cameron delivers the ultimate sci-fi/action film, a fetishisation of techno-militaristic hardware and prowess where the enemy is faceless and numerous, peaceful co-existence is not an option, and only the heavily armed individual will survive.

WINNER: Academy Awards (Sound Editing; Visual Effects). BAFTA (Best Special Effects) 1987.
