Origin: Unknown - the Alien series fanlisting

The Alien Series

The original 'Alien' has become a classic of sci-fi horror, one of the most atmospheric and suspensful films of all time. This was followed by the highly successful sequal, 'Aliens', one of the top-rated sci-fi action films. While the success of 'Alien³' and 'Alien Resurrection' did not match that of the two original films, these movies have also gained a fan following, introducing new aspects of the Alien universe. These four films are bound together by the 'Alien' creature itself, based on an original design by H.R. Giger, and the character of Ellen Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver - one of the strongest female leading roles in sci-fi movie history.

Spin-offs of the movie franchise include novels, comic books and computer games. The movies have also received multiple references in other works, most notably in the second 'Predator' movie - which have ultimately given rise to a new off-shoot of the original Alien series in the form of the 'Alien versus Predator' franchise.
