(1986, James Cameron) In an Oscar nominated performance, Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley awakes from a 57-year hibernation to take on corporate sleazeball Paul Reiser, a platoon of outer space grunts, and the most terrifying alien intruders ever. Cameron’s rich multi-layered camera pyrotechnics shape the funhouse proceedings into a bang-up manual for proletarian survival. Approx. 137 min. DCP restoration approved by director James Cameron.

"ONE SEQUEL THAT SURPASSES THE ORIGINAL!
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“A formidable acceleration of all the fears that lurked in the first film: the frigidity of Scott’s detached and spooky manner is replaced by the relentlessness of a racing heart. Action thrillers assail but rarely test us; this is the tautest, most provoking, and altogether most draining example ever made.”
– Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
