Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Leland Orser's character is called Larry Purvis in the credits. In the original script, he was supposed to have his last name on his jumpsuit, and Christie calls him by that name. This scene was changed in the final cut, and the only person who ever refers to him as Purvis is Call, when they get ready to put him in the Betty's freezing chamber towards the end of the film.
  • When pre-production was underway, the original 'Alien Queen' could not be located and the molds that were used to build the original were damaged beyond usefulness. Fortunately, the original life-size puppet was located... in the personal collection of an avid Alien fan.
  • The script originally called for Newt, the child from Aliens to be cloned. But the studio changed it to Ripley instead because she is the anchor of the series.
  • Joss Whedon was unhappy with everything about the film. He later commented in 2005: "It wasn't a question of doing everything differently, although they changed the ending; it was mostly a matter of doing everything wrong. They said the lines but they said them all wrong. And they cast it wrong. And they designed it wrong. And they scored it wrong. They did everything wrong they could possibly do. That's actually a fascinating lesson in filmmaking. Because everything they did reflects back to the script or looks like something from it. And people assume that if I hated it then they'd changed the script...but it wasn't so much they changed it, they executed it in such a ghastly fashion they rendered it unwatchable.
