Overview

David Fincher's feature debut, ALIEN 3, picks up almost directly after the events in ALIENS, finding Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) frozen in suspended animation as her ship crashes on Fiorina 161, a prison planet. When awakened by the prison's staff, she discovers that she is the sole survivor of her crew. Trapped on a barren planet with convicts and no weapons of any kind, Ripley soon realizes that an alien was also on the ship and has survived. As the savage creature begins to massacre inmates, Ripley bands together with the remaining prisoners and attempts to destroy it by wits alone. Filmed at a time when big guns and high technology dominated the screen, ALIEN 3 deserves commendation for its unique premise--battling a vicious alien creature with no weapons and almost no resources whatsoever. This scenario makes for an unusual and intriguing science fiction thriller that is also notable for Fincher's bleak industrial visuals; the film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Visual Effects.

Synopsis:
Sometimes it takes three movies to really kill an alien. In this grim third installment of the ALIEN films, Lt. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) crash lands on a prison planet and soon discovers an alien is aboard her craft. Mutilated bodies pile up, but this time she has no weapons to fight the marauding creature. Once again her toughness is tested to the max, in a bleaker episode than the previous two in the series. The film is directed with visual flair by David Fincher (SEVEN, FIGHT CLUB).

Notes:
Theatrical release: May 22, 1992. Filmed in England. ALIEN 3 was director David Fincher's first feature film. He had previously directed music videos.

Reviews:
"...Another astonishing performance from the sinewy-and-shorn Sigourney Weaver..." - 05/22/1992 USA Today, p.12D


"...The effect of Weaver's shorn locks is eerily sensual....It's one of the rare sequels that truly measures up. It brings this series to a fitting shiver..." - 05/29/1992 Entertainment Weekly, p.48


"...[Weaver's] image is as vital as her acting -- which, again, is excellent..." - 05/22/1992 Los Angeles Times, p.F1


"...ALIEN 3 can be enjoyed for the early director-stylings of David FIGHT CLUB Fincher..." - 07/01/2000 Total Film, p.110
