Donald Trump far more scary than any monster movie, says Sigourney Weaver at new Liam Neeson movie premiere

By Laura Harding

Alien star Sigourney Weaver has said Donald Trump is far more scary than any monster in her action films.

The actress (66) shot to fame as Ripley in Ridley Scott's sci-fi franchise but said she is far more alarmed by the current Republican presidential candidate.

Arriving at the premiere of her new fantasy movie, A Monster Calls, at the BFI London Film Festival, she said: "There are so many things I wish were a fantasy, like Donald Trump, but unfortunately they are real."

Asked if Hillary Clinton's opponent was more frightening than anything on screen, the American star said, "Unfortunately, yes", and urged people to go to the polls.

Ballymena actor Liam Neeson stars as an ancient tree monster in A Monster Calls, which will be released in UK cinemas on January 6. However, he was a no-show for last night's premiere.
