Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a forgotten prison planet populated with civilization’s most dangerous and unstable criminals. She soon finds herself caught between implacable aliens and hardened criminals, and the anxiety just keeps ratcheting up. The first feature film by David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network, etc.), Alien 3 takes the franchise into a very dark, corrosive place, to everyone’s surprise at the time – it’s a pessimistic film steeped in toxicity, questioning humanity at the abyss. A gritty film about the disillusionments of a world where, in spite of it all, the struggle for survival grinds on.
