Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in 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?
When the film first premiered on ITV in the UK in 1990, all bad language was dubbed over by unknown voice actors. In one scene, Hudson says "The Sarge is gone! Get the f*** out of here!", but in the ITV broadcast it was changed to "The Sarge is gone! Get the hell out of here!!!" and another scene which Ripley says "You know Burke, I don't know which species is worse. You don't see them f****** each other over a goddamn percentage." In the ITV broadcast, it was changed to "You know Burke, I don't know which species is worse. You don't see them fricking each other over a goddamn percentage".
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
(at around 1h 45 mins) When Ripley is preparing the M41 rifle with the flamethrower she is seen loading a new cartridge of ammo in the rifle as the counter runs up to 95. Once the elevator doors open the counter reads 42. She hasn't yet fired a shot.
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
Before the scene where Ripley carries Newt into the infirmary, a single shot of the sentry guns silently scanning the hallways has been inserted.
