How Much Sigourney Weaver Was Paid For All 4 Alien Movies

Sigourney Weaver earned the biggest paydays of her career from the Alien franchise, but how much did she get paid per movie? Weaver made her screen debut with Ridley Scott's Alien, but despite the movie's runaway success, it took seven years for a sequel to materialize. Her career only went from strength to strength in the meantime, with notable highlights including The Year of Living Dangerously and Ghostbusters. Her career was in such a good place that she was initially reluctant to return for Aliens, and it was only thanks to a great script and a major pay bump that she signed on.
