Though the film series as a whole has a few less-than-stellar entries, most fans can agree that James Cameron’s Aliens is one of the best films in the franchise and arguably one of the greatest sequels ever produced. However, despite the acclaim, the content creators at Screen Junkies could not resist humorously poking fun at the popular film in their latest installment of the Honest Trailers YouTube series.
In addition to taking a few light-hearted jabs at Aliens, the video also negatively references Prometheus, the first prequel in the series.

Alien: Covenant, the latest film in the franchise, will arrive in theaters this week.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Directed by Ridley Scott, the film stars Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Noomi Rapace, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Billy Crudup and Amy Seimetz.
Alien: Covenant will be released in theaters on May 19, 2017.
