Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Colbert Revisit ALIENS on THE LATE SHOW

Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Colbert Revisit ALIENS on THE LATE SHOW

Next month, director Ridley Scott is once again exploring the darker side of space in Alien: Covenant, the direct sequel to Prometheus. Although these prequel films haven’t quite caught up to the original Alien movie, we haven’t seen the last of Sigourney Weaver‘s Ellen Ripley. During last Friday’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Weaver made a surprise appearance as Ripley during a comedic sketch.

In the skit, Ripley was forced to go to the Weyland Yutani space station’s medical bay to get treatment for the Xenomorph growing inside of her body. However, Colbert’s Randy wasn’t very interested in providing good customer service, despite the official motto of the Weyland Yutani health care provider.

In one of the funniest parts of the video, Ripley shares her medical history with Randy, including her multiple Xenomorph encounters and the time that she died at the end of Alien 3; which he calls a “pre-existing condition.” Both Colbert and Weaver drop several famous lines from the films throughout the clip, and the futuristic tech is hilariously dated.

At one point, Colbert appeared to improvise when Randy tells Ripley that her suspenders are from 1986. Although Weaver was able to finish her most famous line from Aliens, she could barely keep herself from laughing. Randy also made the mistake of calling Ripley “Sarah Connor,” which she did not take kindly.

Of course, Colbert couldn’t finish the skit without an appearance from a Xenomorph. And this time, it was Randy’s turn to be the host!
