Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
According to Lance Henriksen, he based the character of Bishop on his innocent 12-year-old self. He would sometimes get lost in the role during shooting and would leave the studio to wander around London where the movie was actually being filmed. ... ...
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
The marines are supposed to be "Colonial Marines" but yet they have the patch of the American Flag on their uniforms (one of these patches is clearly visible on Gorman's uniform). Their full title is actually "US Colonial Marines" so an American flag would not be surprising. According to the Aliens VS Predator universe, the United States as we know it right now has evolved by the time of the movie (assuming that the movie is in the AVP universe), it's known as the "United Americas", so the American Flag patch on the Marines' uniforms makes no sense as is Burke and Bishop mentioning some American States (i.e., Wisconsin and Nebraska respectively).
The ALIENS title forms slowly during the opening credits. The full title isn't seen until the opening credits are finished, and the "I" illuminates brightly.
