Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Three aliens were made: a model and two suits. One of the suits was for the seven foot tall Masai tribesman Bolaji Badejo, and the other was for a trained stunt man.
  • During the opening sequence, as the camera wanders around the corridors of the Nostromo, we can clearly see a Krups coffee grinder mounted to a wall; this is the same model that became the "Mr. Fusion" in Back to the Future.
  • Jerry Goldsmith was most aggrieved by the changes that Ridley Scott and his editor Terry Rawlings wrought upon his score. Scott felt that Goldsmith's first attempt at the score was far too lush and needed to be a bit more minimalist. Even then, Goldsmith was horrified to discover that his amended score had been dropped in places by Rawlings who inserted segments from Goldsmith's score to Freud instead. (Rawlings had initially used these as a guide track only, and ended up preferring them to Goldsmith's revised work.) Goldsmith harbored a grudge against the two right up to his death in 2004.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): SPOILER: Just before Brett is killed and the alien drops down behind him you can clearly see wires attached to the alien.
