Top 10 Movie Badasses Kicks Off With Ellen Ripley And Boba Fett

Who is the greatest movie badass of all time? That's the question MTV has been asking accomplished actors, filmmakers, and readers of Movies Blog and Splash Page, and we're happy to announce that the final results are in!

We'll reveal the baddest of the badasses on February 6 at 7:15 PM (EST), when MTV announces the winner live at our New York Comic-Con panel and here on MTV.com. Until then, however, MTV is revealing each of the 10 finalists for the "Greatest Badass" mantle -- one per day and in alphabetical order. So far, we've honored the extensive badassery of "Star Wars" bounty hunter Boba Fett and "Alien" fighter Ellen Ripley, while notable MTV Movies mainstays Kurt Loder and Larry Carroll each provided their lists of the film world's greatest tough guys (and gals).

And just in case you needed a reminder why why Ellen Ripley made the cut, here's a montage we created of some of her greatest hits:


It's always a good time to watch Ellen Ripley in action, isn't it? Keep it locked to MTV.com every day leading up to the big reveal on Friday, Feb. 6 to find out more of the contenders for the title of GREATEST BADASS IN MOVIE HISTORY (and if you're in the NYC area, come to our Comic-Con event)!
