The scene with Ripley waking up gradually was not in the script. It was an addition by the director in order to symbolize the creation of the clone as a larva which transforms into a butterfly and tears up the cocoon. See more »

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. See more »
I think J.P. Jeunet is the best director in history of filmmaking. I realized that when the grenade was thrown in this movie (if you thought it was good you know what I´m talking about), I´m really amazed that he was able to add his style to a movie so different from his earlier work. I can admit that the plot in this movie was not as strong as in the other three and Winona Ryder didn´t really act very well, which can also be said about Sigourney Weaver, I´m sad to say considering the brilliant acting in the other three, but the overall acting was really good, with the performance of Dominique Pinon and Ron Perlman. Dispite of all the bad elements in this movie the good ones made it up and this is without a doubt the best Alien movie.
