Alien Resurrection Theatrical Poster / 20th Century Fox


Fourth in the line of the pre-Prometheus movies of the Aliens franchise, this film came out in 1997. Written by Joss Whedon and directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet this installment takes place 200 years after the events of Alien 3. A crew of space pirates delivering human cargo to a secret military installation finds themselves in the midst of an alien outbreak that their commerce helped create.

A box-office flop in North America, it was a hit internationally. This film was better received by critics than the previous film but still paled in comparison to the two first films of the series. This seems to be the curse of this franchise. Alien and Aliens are science-fiction masterpieces that any attempt to recreate always falls short of attaining.

As we prepare to celebrate the 4th of July let us mix some cocktails to honor this enjoyable film.
