The first sequel to the film “Alien,” stars Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the attack on the Nostromo, as she returns to the planet where her crew encountered the Alien, only this time with a crew of space marines. Naturally, everything goes wrong, and it’s up to Ripley to stop another attack from killing her and a traumatized young girl named Newt (Carrie Henn).
Now, the film’s cast are celebrating the anniversary with a panel at this year’s Comic-Con, with a live stream Q&A featuring questions from audience members and the Internet.
