Alien: The Director's Cut

1979 (Ridley Scott) PG, 116 minutes

The story follows seven crewmates aboard the commercial towing spaceship Nostromo, which
is forced to touch down on a planetoid and investigate a distress signal. An alien larvae
infiltrates their ship and Ellen Ripley (Weaver) and the crew spend half of the film alternately hunting and running from the interstellar parasite. When it came out in 1979, Alien made an impact on both science fiction and horror filmmaking, and has since become a classic in both genres.
