Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • In H.R. Giger's original illustrations the creature has eyes. For the movie, Giger insisted that the creature have no eyes, thus giving the bleak appearance of a cold and emotionless beast.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): SPOILER: Just after the time limit to override the self-destruction of the ship has expired, the clock starts counting down from 5 minutes to 0. We see the clock counting down and it cuts away when the timer reaches 4:57, and then mother says "ship will self-destruct in T-minus 5 minutes."
  • All of the names of the main characters were changed by Walter Hill and David Giler during the revision of the original script by 'Dan OBannon and Ronald Shusett. The script by O'Bannon and Shusett also had a clause indicating that all of the characters are "unisex", meaning they could be cast with male or female actors. However, Shusett and O'Bannon never thought of casting Ripley as a female character.
  • Shredded condoms were used to create tendons of the beast's ferocious jaws
