57 years later, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during her hypersleep. The moon from the original movie has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
A complicated effect shot (the Marines entering the Alien nest) had already been filmed just before James Remar was replaced by Michael Biehn. A re-shoot would be too expensive, so the Corporal Hicks seen with his back towards camera is still played by James Remar.
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
(at around 26 mins) After Spunkmeyer loads the missile, he calls "Clear behind!" and walks the power loader backward. A thick cable can be seen attached to the loader's left foot. (The loaders are supposed to be free-standing.)
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
