Alien is a franchise of movies, comics, books and video games that started with the 1979 film Alien by Ridley Scott. The main character is Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver:

  • Alien (1979)
  • Aliens (1986)
  • Alien 3 (1992)
  • Alien Resurrection (1997)

Prometheus (2012) is a prequel to the Alien series, directed by Ridley Scott and due for release in May 2012. Possibly due to the casting of Michael Fassbender as an android, fan fiction[1] and fan art [2] for the movie were posted before the movie's release.

Besides the main movies there is a lot of stuff using the alien creatures from the film, such as the Alien vs. Predator movies and comics.
