Alien 3: Remastered (or in the title style ALIEN³: Remastered) is a 2022 American science fiction horror film directed by Stephen Fisher and it's the remake of the third film in the Alien franchise. The film was released on May 20, 2022.


In 2179, following the events of Aliens, the Sulaco got struck by a flying a small firing asteroid, causing a fire in Sulaco, The computer launches an escape pod containing Ellen Ripley, the young girl Newt, Hicks, and the damaged android Bishop; after that, the fires destroying the Sulaco completely. The pod crash-lands on Fiorina "Fury" 161, a foundry facility and penal colony inhabited by male inmates with double-Y chromosome syndrome, a genetic mutation which gives the afflicted individual a predisposition for antisocial behavior.

Ripley, Newt, and Hicks were awakened by Clemens, the prison doctor, who informs her that they is the survivors of the Sulaco. They're warned by the prison warden, Harold Andrews, that her presence may have disruptive effects.

Elsewhere in the prison, a quadrupedal alien bursts from Spike. Growing to full size, the alien kills Murphy, Boggs, and Rains and returns outcast prisoner Golic to his previously psychopathic state — Golic dubs the creature "the Dragon". Ripley finds the damaged Bishop in the prison's garbage dump. Just as she is leaving the area, she is cornered by four inmates and almost raped; inmate leader Dillon intervenes and beats the others with a crowbar while Ripley punches the last man in the face. Ripley and Hicks return to the infirmary and re-activates Bishop, who confirms that a Facehugger came with them to Fiorina in the escape pod. Ripley informs Andrews of her previous encounter with the Xenomorphs[10] and suggests everyone work together to hunt down and kill it. The highly skeptical Andrews does not believe her story, and explains that even if she were telling the truth, the facility is without weapons; their only hope is the rescue ship being sent for Ripley by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

On the other side of the prison, Newt founded some real weapons, and Ripley was please, and founded out that the prisoners were wrong, and they found the ammo to protect themselves.

The Alien ambushes Ripley, Newt, and Hicks and Clemens in the prison infirmary, killing him, and almost slays Ripley, Newt and Hicks, but then mysteriously spares her and retreats. Ripley, Hicks and Newt then rushes to the cafeteria to warn the others. Andrews orders Aaron to take her back to the infirmary, but the warden himself is dragged into the vents and killed by the Xenomorph. Ripley, Newt, and Hicks rallies the inmates and proposes they pour flammable toxic waste into the ventilation system and ignite it to flush out the extraterrestrial. However, its intervention causes a premature explosion and several inmates are killed. With Aaron's help, Ripley scans herself using the escape pod's medical equipment and discovers the embryo of an Alien Queen growing inside her. She also discovers that Weyland-Yutani hopes to turn the aliens into biological weapons.

Deducing that the Alien will not kill her because of the embryo she carries, Ripley begs Dillon to kill her, Newt crying refuses to do so; he agrees only if She, Hicks and Newt help the inmates kill the Alien first. They form a plan to lure the Alien into the foundry's molding facility, trap it via a series of closing doors, and drown it in molten lead. The bait-and-chase plan results in the deaths of all the remaining prisoners except Dillon and Morse. Dillon remains in the mold as he allows himself to be killed by the Xenomorph as Morse pours the molten lead onto them. Although the alien is covered in molten metal, it escapes the mold but Ripley activates the fire sprinklers, causing its molten metal exoskeleton to cool rapidly and shatter, blowing it apart.

The Weyland–Yutani team arrives, including scientists, heavily armed commandos and a man who looks identical to Bishop, who explains that he is Bishop's creator. He tries to persuade Ripley to undergo surgery to remove the Alien Queen embryo, which he falsely claims will be destroyed. Ripley refuses and before she steps back onto a mobile platform, which Morse positions over the furnace, she tells Newt and Hicks to take care of themselves.

The Weyland–Yutani team shoot Morse in the leg in an attempt to stop him; Aaron, believing the Bishop look-alike is an android, strikes the man with a wrench and flees just before the commandos shoot Aaron, Ignoring Bishop's pleas to give them the embryo, Newt and Hicks sadly watch Ripley throws herself into the furnace, while she throws herself to her death in the facility's gigantic furnace just as the Queen erupts from her chest. As she dies, Ripley grabs the creature and holds it to her to ensure it enters the fire, burning her, and the Queen to death, leaving Newt cries for Ripley in remorse.

In the aftermath, the prison facility is closed down and the sole surviving inmate, Morse, is taken away. Onboard the Sulaco's escape pod, Ripley's closing distress call from the original Alien plays one last time.

Newt and Hicks were boarding the Weyland–Yutani's ship and they went back to earth and Newt is being reunited by her family, that night, at Newt's home, her family tells her stories, and tells her to sleep tight, Newt feels to sleep, peacefully smiling and the movie.
