Alien has long been considered one of the fascinating horror franchises of all time. Perhaps it’s challenging to keep track of the Alien franchise’s many sequels and prequels. So, from beginning to end, here’s the timetable.

Correct Chronological Order For The Best Experience

1. Alien (1979)

Alien, which debuted in 1979, is the first in a series of films released in chronological order from here on out. Ripley is a member of the Nostromo shuttle crew in the year 2122. Following a distress signal from a nearby planet, the team unintentionally invited a deadly visitor onboard.

2. Aliens (1986)

In 2179, Ripley awakens from cryogenic hibernation after decades. She is summoned to the planet where the Alien was first discovered. It has since been converted into a colony. Ripley fights an army of Xenomorphs with a small group of marines and becomes an action movie legend.

3. Predator (1987)

The film Predator was directed by John McTiernan and written by brothers Jim and John Thomas in 1987. It is the first installment of the Predator film series. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of an elite paramilitary rescue team, where they come face to face with the deadly Predator.

4. Predator 2 (1990)

5. Alien 3 (1992)

Alien 3, David Fincher’s directorial debut, was not the ideal showcase for his fantastic filmmaking abilities. It marks the end of the saga for Ellen Ripley, but not for Sigourney Weaver. The theme of Weyland Corporation as the franchise’s human enemy is also continued in this film.

6. Alien: Resurrection (1997)

Alien Resurrection is the franchise’s latest departure. Because of Joss Whedon’s writing, it has a far more comedic tone than the other films. The team discovers that Ripley has been cloned and is being used to make more Xenomorphs for military purposes.

7. AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)

In 2004, Alien versus Predator was released, telling the narrative of a group of scientists and mercenaries who find a mysterious underground pyramid in Antarctica. They rapidly become embroiled in a centuries-old conflict between two hostile extraterrestrial races. Charles Bishop Weyland, the human basis for the future android and CEO of Weyland Corporation, is played by Lance Henricksen.

8. AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator — Requiem (2007)

Alien vs. Pre Aside from showing us the Predator’s homeland and the formation of a Xenomorph/Predator hybrid, the film is a dull spin-off that adds nothing to either franchise’s general mythology or establishes anything that will happen in the future.
