Director

Alexandre O. Philippe

USA / 2019 / English / 94 minutes / DCP

Do we still remember the shudder and thrill when that strange creature bursts out of Kane (John Hurt) and into a cosmic battle with Sigourney Weaver in her breakthrough role as Warrant Office Ripley? Four decades later, Philippe (78/52, 42nd) probes the mythic underbelly of Alien’s (1979) mesmerizing story, moving from Greek and Egyptian myths to the nightmares of contemporary art interwoven by screenwriter Dan O’Bannon and his creative team. Who knows what else lurks in sinister space?
