Alien Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marines (ACM) is being marketed as an official 20th Century Fox sequel to Aliens and Alien 3. But be warned, ACM is a video game:

Aliens- Colonial Marines Lance Henriksen
Aliens: Colonial Marines’ Lance Henriksen

In the first few minutes, we’re thrust into the aftermath of the 1986 movie (and the beginning of Alien 3.). As Corporal Winter, our mission to rescue the rescuers of Hadley’s Hope colony on planet LV-426 rapidly devolves, and it’s up to us to determine what happened.

We also get an intro by Corporal Hicks (Michael Biehn) and some interaction with the “whole” new Bishop (Lance Henriksen). For fans of the films and comic books, that alone is worth the price of admission to this shooting party.

Marines and aliens. Together again. . .
