In 1979, science fiction and horror were brought together in director Ridley Scott's classic film Alien. The film follows the crew of a space cargo-ship, the Nostromo, who land on a hostile planet in response to a faint SOS only to discover an abandoned ship with a ravenous alien on board.
Alien inspired three movie sequels, and now Aliens: Original Sin expands further on this classic story, bringing back characters like Ripley 8, the clone of Lt. Ellen Ripley, and android Annalee Call.
It also sorts out unanswered questions from the movies and raises entirely new ones such as why the Nostromo happened to pass by the desolate planet or why the Xenomorphs were on the crashed ship in the first place.
