200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone who must continue her battle against the aliens. Along with a crew of space pirates, Ripley must also prevent the deadly aliens from reaching Earth.
H.R. Giger was openly displeased that he wasn't given a credit for his alien designs and fired off a letter of protest to 20th Century Fox.
My mommy always said there were no monsters. No real ones. But there are.
At around 1h23m to 1h27m of Special Edition Cut of the movie, following Call's connection with Father, she and Ripley have conversation. During this conversation, in close up shots of Call's face, reflections of circular lighting rigs can be seen on Call's irises. Those same reflections can be seen in Ripley's eyes also, but less prominent and distorted due to angle of view.
Many of the creature effects casting and mold making crew. Some long standing, heavily contributing members, were omitted from the credits. Supposedly due to budget concerns.
