Double bill of sci-fi action. 'Aliens' (1986) is James Cameron's sequel to the highly successful 'Alien'. Officer Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), the sole survivor of the alien attack on the 'Nostromo', awakes after 57 years in suspended animation when she is picked up by a salvage ship. She is put to work by the Company, but is horrified to discover that the planet where her ship picked up the original alien has now been colonized. When contact with the colony is lost, the Company send Ripley on an investigative mission with a team of hardened Space Marines. In 'Predator' (1987), Major Alan 'Dutch' Schaefer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and a band of mercenaries head into the Central American jungle to rescue some Americans from guerillas. However, there is an additional evil force at work in the jungle... something not human. The mercenaries are picked off one by one, and soon Schaefer must face the alien predator alone.
