Box set containing all three films from the 'Species' trilogy. 'Species' (1995) begins in 1974 when scientists used the world's largest radio telescope to send messages into outer space. Twenty years later they receive a message giving instructions on how to mix human and alien DNA to form 'Sil', a new species. The scientists create 'Sil' - in the shape of a beautiful young woman (Natasha Henstridge) - who escapes from the observation facility. She must be stopped before she mates with a human male and creates a new species which could overwhelm mankind. A team is assembled to destroy 'Sil', led by scientist Xavier Fitch (Ben Kingsley) and containing an assassin (Michael Madsen), a biologist (Marg Helgenberger), an anthropologist (Alfred Molina) and an empath (Forest Whitaker). In 'Species 2' (1997), scientist Laura Baker (Marg Helgenberger) has created a pseudo-alien clone, Eve (Natasha Henstridge), to assist her research after another series of alien killings begins. Reuniting with gunman Press Lennox (Michael Madsen), Laura realizes that astronaut Patrick Ross (Justin Lazard), recently returned from Mars, is the culprit, having become infected with the alien virus and now obsessed with spreading his seed across the planet Earth. 'Species 3' (2004) is the third installment of the successful 'Species' franchise. In the ongoing fight for supremacy between mankind and human/alien hybrids, a fatal hybrid weakness has given humans the advantage. Until now. When Sara (Mabrey), the daughter of Eve (Natasha Henstridge) is born, she grows into the most genetically perfect alien form yet. Seeking to repopulate her kind, this dangerously beautiful femme fatale heeds an overwhelming drive to mate, while a crack military team trails her in an attempt to end the war between the two species forever.
