Simply put, Ellen Ripley is the Alien franchise. Even though her adversary gets the title, Ripley is the star of the first four films, and her story is what ties everything together. So the fact that director Ridley Scott has an idea to work her back into his films isn't a surprise. But the way he wants to do it might be.


So it's come to this. Blade Runner fans have debated for decades whether or not Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) was a replicant.
