Alien: Resurrection

Alien: Resurrection (1997) is the fourth in the Alien series of films. Unlike the previous movies, it was not filmed in England Plot The events of Alien: Resurrection take place two centuries after the events of Alien³. Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) has been cloned on the outer space military science vessel Auriga using "blood samples from Fiori 16, on ice," so that the United Systems Military can extract the alien queen embryo that had been implanted in her prior to her death in Alien³. After successful extraction of the queen embryo, the scientists decide to keep the Ripley clone alive for further study. They raise the alien queen to adult size and collect its eggs for further use. As a result of the cloning process, during which Ripley's DNA was mixed with the alien's, she has developed several new abilities including enhanced strength and reflexes, acidic blood, and an empathic link with the aliens.

The Betty, a ship full of mercenaries, arrives delivering several kidnapped humans in hypersleep. The military scientists use them as hosts for the alien facehuggers, raising several adult aliens for study. The mercenaries soon encounter Ripley, and their youngest member Call (Winona Ryder) recognizes her name. She attempts to kill Ripley, believing she may be used to create more aliens. Call is too late; the adult aliens have already been created and quickly escape their confinement, damaging the ship and killing most of its crew. Dr. Wren, one of the ship's scientists, reveals that the Auriga's default command in an emergency situation is to return to Earth. Realizing that this will unleash the aliens on Earth, Ripley, the mercenaries, Wren, a surviving marine named DiStephano, and a surviving alien host, Purvis, set out to escape on the Betty and then destroy the Auriga.

As the group makes their way through the damaged ship, several of them are killed by the aliens. Call is revealed to be an android after Wren betrays the group. Using her abilities to interface with the damaged ship's systems, they set it on a collision course with Earth, hoping that the remaining aliens will be destroyed in the crash. The alien queen has also gained an ability from Ripley's DNA: she can now give birth to live offspring directly without the need for eggs and human hosts. The resulting offspring, which appears more humanoid, recognizes Ripley as its "mother" and kills the alien queen. Ripley is a witness to the horrific birth but escapes soon after and heads for the Betty.

Ripley and the surviving mercenaries arrive at the Betty; and, as they launch, the human/alien hybrid attacks Ripley and Call. Ripley kills it by using her own acidic blood to burn a hole through a viewing pane, causing the creature to be drawn through the small hole and into the vacuum of space. The survivors escape in the Betty as the Auriga dives into the atmosphere and explodes over Earth.
