Original Theatrical Trailer
Performers, Cast and Crew:
USA Today - 05/22/1992
"...Another astonishing performance from the sinewy-and-shorn Sigourney Weaver..."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/29/1992
"...The effect of Weaver's shorn locks is eerily sensual....It's one of the rare sequels that truly measures up. It brings this series to a fitting shiver..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/22/1992
"...[Weaver's] image is as vital as her acting -- which, again, is excellent..."
Total Film - 07/01/2000
"...ALIEN 3 can be enjoyed for the early director-stylings of David FIGHT CLUB Fincher..."
Sometimes it takes three movies to really kill an alien. In this grim third installment of the ALIEN films, Lt. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) crash lands on a prison planet and soon discovers an alien is aboard her craft. Mutilated bodies pile up, but this time she has no weapons to fight the marauding creature. Once again her toughness is tested to the max, in a bleaker episode than the previous two in the series. The film is directed with visual flair by David Fincher (SEVEN, FIGHT CLUB).
