Alien Resurrection is an American science fiction/horror film and the fourth installment in the Alien film franchise. It was directed by French film maker Jean-Pierre Jeunet based on a script by Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon. The film was produced by Brandywine Productions and Twentieth Century-Fox Productions and premeired on November 26th, 1997. Alien Resurrection is the final film to date in the franchise dealing solely with xenomorph aliens, though it did branch out into several multimedia crossover projects with the Predator film franchise beginning with the 2004 film Alien vs. Predator. Alien Resurrection takes place two-hundred years following the death of series heroine Ellen Ripley in Alien³. Although Ripley may be dead and gone, her clone survives as an amalgamation of human and xenomorph DNA. A crazed scientist named Doctor Jonathan Gediman aboard the scientific research vessel Auriga nurtures the Ripley clone in the hopes of using her to spawn a hybrid queen alien. A team of mercenaries deliver a group of human donor hosts locked in suspended animation, but as per custom, things go awry and the station becomes infested with aliens. The Ripley clone must decide whether to help the humans survive or stay true to her xenomorph instincts.
