James Cameron directs the second and best Alien flick. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) wakes up after a well-deserved 57-year snooze only to be shipped straight back to the Alien planet where, as the title cunningly implies, her original adversary has acquired some chums. Luckily, they have a bunch of disposable military goons to dispatch before taking on our increasingly maternal heroine.

It’s back on screen in the post-lockdown season of movie classics.
