it was great to experience alien on the big screen
great night. love the 10 min preview of COVERANT
Watching it again reminded me how remarkably the sound engineers did their jobs. Listen to the subtly amplified heartbeat - Ripley's? the ship's? - that pulses under the soundtrack through the last 15 minutes.

Did You Know?
- A sex scene between Dallas and Ripley was scripted, to show how casually the crew would solve long periods of abstinence. Another reference to this was a deleted scene where Ripley inquires with Lambert whether she ever had sex with Ash. The sex scene was ultimately not filmed, but Ridley Scott revived the idea for Prometheus (2012).
- When Dallas is climbing through the air shafts of the Nostromo, a ladder he uses wobbles.
- [looks at a pen being dissolved by alien's body fluid]
- Dallas: I haven't seen anything like that except, uh, molecular acid.
- Brett: It must be using it for blood.
- Parker: It's got a wonderful defense mechanism. You don't dare kill it.
