The Betty crew soon encounters Ripley. Call recognizes


her name and tries to kill her, suspecting she may be used
to create more Aliens. The Aliens have already matured
and escape connement by killing o one of their own
and using the acidic blood to burn through their enclosures. They damage the Auriga and kill the crew members who do not evacuate, including General Perez and
Elgyn. Military scientist Dr. Wren reveals that the ships
default command in an emergency is to return to Earth.
Realizing this will unleash the Aliens on Earth, Ripley,
the mercenaries, Wren, a Marine named DiStephano and
surviving Alien host Purvis decide to head for the Betty
and use it to destroy the Auriga. Along the way, Ripley
encounters the grotesque products of failed attempts to
clone Ripley. The surviving one begs Ripley to mercy
kill her, and she complies.

Alien: Resurrection is a 1997 American science ction


action horror lm directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and
written by Joss Whedon. It is the fourth installment in
the Alien lm series, and was lmed at the 20th Century
Fox studios in Los Angeles, California.
In the lm, which is set 202 years after the preceding installment Alien 3 (1992), Ellen Ripley (Sigourney
Weaver) is cloned and an Alien queen is surgically removed from her body. The United Systems Military
hopes to breed Aliens to study and research on the spaceship USM Auriga, using human hosts kidnapped and delivered to them by a group of mercenaries. The Aliens
escape their enclosures, while Ripley and the mercenaries
attempt to escape and destroy the Auriga before it reaches
its destination, Earth.

As the group make their way through the damaged ship,


they swim through a ooded kitchen. They are chased
by two Aliens. One is killed, while the other snatches
Hillard. As they escape the kitchen, the Alien returns and
blinds Christie, who sacrices himself to kill the Alien so
the others can escape. After Wren betrays the group, Call
is revealed to be an android. Using her ability to interface with the Auriga's systems, Call sets it on a collision
course with Earth, hoping to destroy the Aliens in the
crash. She cuts o Wrens escape route, and directs the
Aliens towards him. Ripley is captured by the Aliens,
while the others head for the Betty. Wren shoots Purvis
and takes Call hostage, demanding that she abort the collision. An injured Purvis attacks Wren and forces his head
to his chest just as the Alien embryo he is carrying bursts
through his ribcage, causing it to go through Wrens head
and kill them both. The survivors shoot the embryo.

Alien: Resurrection was released on November 26, 1997


and received mixed reviews from lm critics. Roger
Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times felt there is not a single shot in the movie to ll one with wonder,[4] while
Desson Thomson of The Washington Post said the lm
satisfactorily recycles the great surprises that made the
rst movie so powerful.[5]

Plot

Two hundred years after the events of Alien 3, military


scientists on the space vessel USM Auriga create a clone
of Ellen Ripley using DNA from blood samples taken
before her death. The Alien queens DNA was mixed
in with Ripleys, and the clone grows up with an embryo
inside it. The scientists extract the embryo, raise it and
collect its eggs. The Ripley clone is kept alive for further
study. As a result of the aliens DNA inside her, she develops enhanced strength and reexes, has acidic blood and
a psychic link with the Aliens. Also, the aliens genetic
memory allows the clone to have some of Ripleys memories.

Ripley is taken to the Alien nest, where the Queen, now


possessing a womb as a result of the genetic mixture,
gives birth to a Newborn, a Xenomorph with human traits.
The hybrid Alien recognizes Ripley as its mother, kills the
queen Alien and Dr. Jonathan Gediman, a scientist previously captured and cocooned. Ripley takes advantage of
the distraction to escape and makes her way to the Betty.

The Newborn reaches the Betty and attacks Call. It kills


DeStephano when he tries to help her. Ripley nds her
way onto the ship and saves Call by distracting the Newborn. Using her acidic blood, Ripley melts the glass of a

Origins

Impressed with his work as a screenwriter, 20th Century


Fox hired Joss Whedon to write the lms script. Whedons initial screenplay had a third act on Earth, with a
nal battle for Earth itself.[7] Whedon wrote ve versions
of the nal act, none of which ended up in the lm.[7]

cinematographer Darius Khondji, both of whom he had
worked with on The City of Lost Children. Jeunet and
his crew watched the latest science ction and Alien lms
as reference material, and obtained production reports
from the Alien lms to study the camera setups. Jeunet
was given creative control, contributing several elements
to the script including ve dierent endings, although
the expensive ones were dismissed. He also opted to
make the lm a dark comedy and was encouraged to include more violence. In June 1996, Jeunets frequent codirector, conceptual artist Marc Caro had drawn rough
sketches of characters costumes, which were shown to
veteran costume designer Bob Ringwood. Ringwood
made several modications for the nal design.[12]

The studio initially imagined that the lm would center


around a clone of the character Newt from Aliens, as the
Ellen Ripley character had died at the end of Alien 3.
Whedon composed a thirty-page treatment surrounding
this idea before being informed that the studio, though
impressed with his script, now intended to base the story
on a clone of Ripley, whom they saw as the anchor of the
series.[8] Whedon had to rewrite the script in a way that
would bring back the Ripley character, a task he found 3.3
dicult. The idea of cloning was suggested by producers
David Giler and Walter Hill, who opposed the production
of Alien: Resurrection, as they thought it would ruin the
franchise.[9]

Creatures

Sigourney Weaver, who had played Ripley throughout


the series, wanted to liberate the character in Alien 3
as she did not want Ripley to become a gure of fun
who would continuously wake up with monsters running
around. The possibility of an Alien vs. Predator lm was
another reason for the characters death, as she thought
the concept sounded awful. However, Weaver was impressed with Whedons script. She thought that the error
during Ripleys cloning process would allow her to further
explore the character, since Ripley becoming part human
and part Alien would create uncertainty about where her
loyalties lay. This was an interesting concept to Weaver,
who thought the lm brought back the spirit of Alien and
Aliens.[9] Weaver received a co-producer credit and was
reportedly paid $11 million.[6]

3.2

Direction and design

Trainspotting director Danny Boyle was the producers


rst choice to direct the lm. Boyle and his producer
met with eects supervisors to discuss the lm, but he
was not interested in pursuing the project and went on to
make A Life Less Ordinary instead. Peter Jackson was
also approached, but declined as he could not get excited about an Alien lm.[10] In 1995, after the release of
The Usual Suspects, 20th Century Fox approached Bryan
Singer to direct.[11] Jean-Pierre Jeunet was asked to direct, as the lms producers believed he had a unique visual style. Jeunet had just completed the script to Amlie
and was surprised he was oered the job for Alien: Resurrection, as he thought the franchise had nished with Alien
3 and believed that making a sequel was a bad idea.[12] Jeunet, however, accepted the project with a budget of $70
million.[13] He required an interpreter as he did not speak
much English when lming began.[14]

The original design of the human/Alien hybrid included a mix of


female and male sex organs, which were removed during postproduction

Special eects company Amalgamated Dynamics Incorporated (ADI) was hired for the lm, having previously
worked on Alien 3. ADI founders Tom Woodru, Jr. and
Alec Gillis also had experience working with Stan Winston on Aliens. ADI based their designs and modications of the Alien creatures on the lms script, which included the creatures having pointed tails for swimming,
making their head domes and chins more pointed, and establishing them to appear more vicious using techniques
of camera angles and shot duration. After receiving the
directors approval, ADI began to create small sculptures,
Jeunet hired French special eects supervisor Pitof and sketches, paintings, and life-size models.[15]

PRODUCTION

Jeunet asked ADI to lean towards making the human/Alien hybrid creature more human than Alien. An
early concept was to replicate Sigourney Weavers features, although the crew felt this design would be too
similar to the design of the creature Sil from the 1995
lm Species. Eyes and a nose were added to the hybrid
to allow it to have more expressions and communicate
more emotion than the xenomorphs, so that it would have
more depth as a character rather than being just a killing
machine.[15] Jeunet was adamant about the hybrid having genitalia which resembled a mix of male and female
sexes. 20th Century Fox was uncomfortable with this,
however, and Jeunet eventually changed his mind, feeling
that even for a Frenchman, its too much.[15] The genitalia were removed during post-production using digital
eects techniques. The animatronic hybrid required nine
puppeteers and was the most complex animatronic in the
lm.[15]

baskets, although the distance required for lming was


farther than she had practiced. Jeunet was concerned
about the time being spent on the shot and wanted to either use a machine to throw the ball or to insert it later
using computer-generated imagery (CGI). Weaver, however, was determined to make the shot authentic, and insisted on doing it herself. The shot required many dozens
of takes, during which none of the balls went in. The crew
were going to give up, but gave Weaver one last shot, and
in this take, she got the ball in perfectly; the idea that she
did it in one take is a myth. The ball was out of frame for a
moment during the shot, and Pitof oered to edit it so that
the ball was on-screen for the entire scene, but Weaver refused. Ron Perlman broke character when she made the
basket, and turned to the camera to say Oh my god!"
There was enough of a pause between Weavers basket
and Perlmans statement for the lms editors to cut the
scene accordingly during post-production.[17]

3.5 Visual eects and miniatures

Filming

Alien: Resurrection was lmed at Fox studios in Los Angeles, California, from October 1996 to February 1997.
Jeunet had diculty securing studio space, as the lming of Hollywood blockbusters such as Titanic, Starship
Troopers, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park were taking
place at the same time. Alien: Resurrection was the rst
installment in the Alien series to be lmed outside England, a decision made by Weaver, who believed that the
previous lms travel schedules exhausted the crew.[12]

The lms script was laid out similar to a comic book,


with pictures on the left and dialog and descriptions on the
right. Jeunet planned every shot, which made it easier for
visual eects artists to do their work. Blue Sky Studios
was hired to create the rst CGI Aliens to appear on lm.
Impressed with the companys work on Joes Apartment
creating CGI cockroaches, Jeunet and Pitof opted to hire
the company to create 30 to 40 shots of CGI Aliens. The
decision was made to use CGI Aliens rather than pupThe underwater scene was the rst to be shot, and for its pets or suited actors whenever the creatures legs were in

Release
Box oce

A pre-screening of Alien: Resurrection was held in


Camarillo, California, and the lm was released in North
America on November 26, 1997.[21] Debuting at number
two at the box oce behind Flubber, Alien: Resurrection grossed $25 million in its rst ve days$16 million
over the weekend, for an average of $6,821 per 2,415
theaters. The lm grossed $47.7 million in North America, the least successful of the Alien series on that continent. It was well received internationally, however, with a
gross of $113.5 million, bringing its total gross to $161.2
million.[22] It was the 43rd highest grossing lm in North
America in 1997.[23]

Critical reception

Alien: Resurrection received mixed reviews from lm


critics, generally regarded as a slight improvement over
Alien 3. The lm scored 54% on Rotten Tomatoes[24]
and 63/100 on Metacritic based on 21 reviews.[25] Roger
Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the lm a negative
review, stating There is not a single shot in the movie to
ll one with wonder. And he placed it to one of his worst
lms of 1997. [4] Jeery Overstreet of Looking Closer
commented Its time they quit killing the aliens, and just
killed the Alien series altogether. ... How the mighty have
fallen.[26] Joe Baltake of the Sacramento Bee stated that
This 'Alien' should never have been resurrected, while
Tom Meek of Film Threat wrote Weaver and Jeunets efforts are shortchanged by the ineptness of Joss Whedons
script, that seems to nd a way to make action sequences
unexciting.[27]
On the other hand, Mary Brennan of Film thought that
the movie was A lot of fun to watch, and easy to surrender to in the moment.[27] Houston Chronicle editor Louis
B. Parks said The lm is a marvel, a well-photographed
feast of visual imagery,[28] while Richard Schickel of
Time wrote that it was Less frightening, but as much fun
as ever.[29] Washington Post contributor Desson Thom-

son felt it satisfactorily recycles the great surprises that


made the rst movie so powerful. And most signicantly,
it makes a big hoot of the whole business.[5]
Screenwriter Joss Whedon was unhappy with the nal
product. When asked in 2005 how the lm diered from
the script he had written, Whedon responded:
It wasn't a question of doing everything
dierently, although they changed the ending;
it was mostly a matter of doing everything
wrong. They said the lines...mostly...but they
said them all wrong. And they cast it wrong.
And they designed it wrong. And they scored
it wrong. They did everything wrong that they
could possibly do. Theres actually a fascinating lesson in lmmaking, because everything
that they did reects back to the script or looks
like something from the script, and people assume that, if I hated it, then theyd changed
the script...but it wasnt so much that theyd
changed the script; its that they just executed
it in such a ghastly fashion as to render it almost
unwatchable.[30]
Conversely, H. R. Giger, designer of the original Alien,
was pleased with Resurrection, describing it as an excellent lm, but was disappointed about not being credited
in the lm.[31]

5 Home media
Alien: Resurrection was rst released onto home video in
the VHS and DVD formats on June 1, 1998. The lm
received its rst Blu-ray release as part of the Alien Anthology box set released in 2010 including all four lms
and their alternate versions. The lm was re-released on
Blu-ray on May 10, 2011 in a stand-alone feature.

5.1 2003 Special Edition


In 2003, Jeunet included an alternate version of the lm
on the Alien Quadrilogy DVD box set with dierent opening and closing credits, which were originally cut due to
budget restrictions. The deleted scenes included references to the character Newt from Aliens, Vriess making
a joke to Call, Ripleys clone waking up in the middle
of her operation, an extended conversation in the mess
hall that reveals the details of Ripleys former employers, Weyland-Yutani, an extended dialogue between Call

and Ripleys clone in the chapel and scenes of the Betty


landing on Earth and the planets landscape during the nal dialogue between Ripley and Call, as they view the
ruins of Paris. The special edition restores 13 minutes
and 5 seconds worth of footage (including the new opening and ending), and is 7 minutes longer than theatrical
version.[32] Jeunet has stated that the special edition is not
a directors cut as his preferred version is the theatrical
cut.
Alien: Resurrection: Collectors Edition was released on
January 6, 2004, containing the two discs contained in
the Quadrilogy set. The second disc, called One Step Beyond: The Making of Alien: Resurrection, features over
two hours of footage relating to pre-production, production, post-production, screen tests, concept art, and audio
commentary by the cast and crew.

Merchandising

To coincide with the release of the lm, a book titled


Making of Alien: Resurrection was released on November 28, 1997 in addition to a novelization of the lm released on December 1, 1997.[33][34] Dark Horse Comics
also published a two-issue comic book adaptation.[35]
Kenner Toys produced a line of 6 scale action gures
for the lm. The characters were Ripley, Call, Newborn Alien, Aqua Alien, Battle-Scarred Alien, and Warrior Alien.

would focus on the chronicles of Ellen Ripley rather than


on the Aliens, but the continuation of Ripleys story has
not materialized.[39] Instead, Prometheus, was released in
2012. A sequel to Prometheus has also been announced
but has yet to go into production.
At the 2014 Hero Complex Film Festival, Sigourney
Weaver hinted that she'd be interested in returning to the
role of Ripley, saying: Had we done a fth one, I don't
doubt that her humanity would have prevailed. I do
feel like there is more story to tell. I feel a longing from
fans for the story to be nished. I could imagine a situation where we nish telling the story. She was quoted:
I don't think Alien belongs on Earth popping out of a
haystack, which is where I was afraid it was going to go. I
feel it should take place in the far reaches of the universe
where no one in their right mind would go. There are very
few lmmakers that I can think of that I would want to
entrust this to.[40]
In February 2015, Neill Blomkamp posted artwork of
an Alien lm on his Instagram, announcing that he had
been signed on to direct a new Alien lm.[41] Sigourney
Weaver has announced that she will be reprising her role.
Ridley Scott announced that he will do Alien 5 after
the Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant (originally titled
Alien: Paradise Lost).

Possible sequel

Joss Whedon had written an Earth-set script for Alien 5,


but Sigourney Weaver was not interested in this setting,
and sought to return the story to the planetoid from the
rst lm. Weaver has remained open to a role in a fth installment on the condition that she likes the story.[36] Before 20th Century Fox greenlit Alien vs. Predator, James
Cameron had been collaborating on the plot for a fth
Alien lm with another writer. Learning of Foxs plans
for a crossover, he ceased work on his concept. Before he
saw the lm, Cameron had stated that it would kill the
validity of the franchise, and that it was Frankenstein
Meets Werewolf" like "Universal just taking their assets and starting to play them o against each other.
Although he later admitted to liking Alien vs. Predator, Cameron ruled out any future involvement with the
series.[37]
In a 2002 interview, Ridley Scott stated that a new Alien
project would be a lot of fun, but that the most important thing was to get the story right. Scotts concept for
the plot was to go back to where the alien creatures were
rst found and explain how they were created.[38] In late
2008, Weaver hinted in an interview with MTV that she
and Scott were working on an Alien spino lm, which
