James Cameron And The Xenogenesis Of Aliens’ Powerloader

It’s an iconic moment in action film history – Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), previously hidden behind a huge locked door and thinking fast, stomps out in a previously viewed innocuous – looking “future fork-lift” to smackdown the Alien Queen chasing a scuttling Newt (Carrie Henn) around the Sulaco hold.
