Sadly, we won’t be seeing Ellen Ripley in the forthcoming Alien: Covenant (remember, these new Alien films are PREQUELS to the original quadrilogy), but actress Sigourney Weaver has just donned the battle fatigues for the first time since 1997’s Alien Resurrection in a comedy sketch for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Believe it or not, Weaver is now a staggering 67 years old now! Not that you’d ever guess that from the clip though. If Alien 5 does ever happen, then it looks like she’s still got it.
Check out Weaver’s return as Ellen Ripley below.
Alien: Covenant drops at Cineworld on 12 May.
