Following 2012’s Prometheus, director Ridley Scott makes a return to the Aliens series in the newest cinematic entry to the franchise he started in 1979 with the original Alien. A group of colonists arrive on a remote planet where they encounter hostile aliens they weren’t prepared for: a new breed of Xenomorph. The story is a sequel to Prometheus and features Michael Fassbender reprising his role in addition to new characters played by Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, and Demián Bichir.
