“Alien: Covenant” is arriving in theaters next month, but since it’s a prequel to “Alien,” we won’t be getting any of Sigourney Weaver’s beloved Ellen Ripley character in the film. Luckily, Stephen Colbert was able to step in with this comedy sketch featuring Weaver as Ripley, who tries to get medical attention from a disinterested Colbert.
The funniest moment comes when Ripley lists her insane medical history that includes many encounters with xenomorphs and ends with her killing herself by jumping into a furnace. “Okay, so under pre-existing conditions, I’m going to put down ‘dead’,” Colbert replies.
See the full sketch below to get your fix of Ellen Ripley, and catch “Alien: Covenant” in theaters on May 19.
