WATCH: Sigourney Weaver steps into the Ellen Ripley role once more (sort of)

April 23rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

She saved the universe at least four times as Ellen Ripley, the iconic bad-ass from the Alien franchise and now Sigourney Weaver (she’ll always be Dana Barrett to us) is back in ass-kicking form.

With everyone getting excited for Alien: Covenant which lands in a few short weeks, Weaver appeared as Ripley on the Stephen Colbert Show and while it’s clearly a wind-up, we reckon that if Ridley Scott decided to take the character back then Weaver could easily get back out there and kill some xenomorphs (that’s aliens to you and me).

What say you all? Check out the clip and let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
