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.
Many fans still can't quite embrace Alien 3, with some considering it the worst movie in the franchise. Some hate it simply because it kills off beloved character Ripley at the end, sending her to a fiery death. And though she was resurrected as a clone in Alien Resurrection, many simply aren't willing to forgive director David Fincher and his sequel for what it did. While speaking with London Times at London Comic-Con this past weekend, star Sigourney Weaver confirmed it was her decision to kill off Ripley. Though, we shouldn't blame the actress. Alien Vs. Predator is the real culprit to blame!
Alien Vs. Predator was one of those movies that sat in development for a long time. It was already moving forward as early as 1992, when Alien 3 came out. But it wouldn't arrive for 12 more years, with Sigourney Weaver returning in Alien Resurrection first. The actress claims that Alien Vs. Predator was a big reason original director Ridley Scott didn't return to the franchise. He wanted to do Alien 3, but didn't like the direction 20th Century Fox wanted to take with the series. He was actually on board for a long while, but bailed, with first time director David Fincher taking his place. So not only is Alien Vs. Predator responsible for killing off Ripley, it also meant we wouldn't see Ridley Scott return to this world until 2012's Prometheus.Read More
