In deep space, on their way home, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules after receiving a distress call from an alien vessel. After discovering a nest of eggs, the terror starts. Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic, as visually rich and scary as when it was released, stars Sigourney Weaver, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton, Tom Skerritt, John Hurt and Ian Holm. (U.K., 1979, 117m).
