Alien 3 Special Edition (2003)

Dillon’s Prayer
In the mess hall, Dillon leads a prayer and then condemns the prisoners for what has been going on (such as the attempted rape and the death of Murphy, Boggs, and Rains) as Ripley runs down the hallway. Andrews takes over and the scene goes on as originally shown.

Morse Challenging Ripley
A new shot where the prisoner mopping up Andrews’ blood. He looks up at the air vent and there’s an overheard shot. This is followed by a new scene where Dillon preaches to the prisoners after Andrews’ death. In the same scene after Morse says they should take Ripley’s head and “bash it through the fucking wall,” Ripley replies “That sounds good to me…”

Alien’s Entrapment
There are several extra shots in the scene where the inmates set the trap in the tunnel, including one with two inmates checking a pile of batteries, to see if there are some with enough electricity for Aaron’s flashlight to work. Ripley looks exhausted while on paintbrush detail and shrugs it off, and Dillon shows concern. As the explosions in the corridors are going off, there are many new shots of prisoners in the air vents engulfed in the flames and falling out of the vents, as well as 85 running away from a burning prisoner. Dillon tries to activate the sprinkler to no effect.

One of the prisoners is hurt badly and Ripley is trying to help him. The prisoner’s friend Junior looks fearfully at her as she realizes both of them attacked her. The group runs for the spare sprinkler activator. The alien crawls down from the ceiling as the others ry to lure it away. Junior is near the Toxic Waste room and sees a chance to trap the alien and runs into the room, causing the alien to run in after him and sacrificing his life. Ripley and Dillon lock the doors and the sounds of the alien killing him are heard outside. Dillon turns on the sprinklers. After finally putting out the fires, there are several new shots in the montage of prisoners walking through the wreckage of the hallways, and a scene where Dillon is leading a prayer for those who sacrificed themselves and died.

Ripley and 85
During Dillon’s prayer in the previous scene, the camera moves up to Ripley and 85 and they talk about religion. 85 says that the company will arrive to kill the trapped alien with smart guns. Ripley asks him what if they won’t kill it.

Golic’s Escape
Immediately following the previous scene, there is a scene where Morse is guarding Golic in the infirmary. Golic asks Morse to untie him. Morse reluctantly unties him, and after Golic asks him, tells him where the alien is trapped. Golic knocks him out and hurries out of the room.

Company’s Message
Next, there is a scene where 85 and Ripley are sending a transmission to the company about the trapped alien and Ripley, testing the company’s intentions, requests permission to terminate the alien. The company quickly replies and tells them not to do anything to the alien, confirming Ripley’s suspicions.

Alien’s Liberation
Golic arrives at the Toxic waste dump and tells the prisoner guarding the door he must talk to the creature. The prisoner shrugs him off and suddenly Golic slits his throat and opens the door, telling the alien he’ll do anything he wants. Golic screams as the alien attacks and the alien escapes.

How to Proceed
Following on from the previous scene, Ripley, Dillon, and Morse along with 85 go to the dump where 85 blames Morse for Golic’s actions. Some of this scene was re-edited to make it follow the explosion sequence in the theatrical version.

Moving to the Furnace
There’s a new scene in the assembly hall, after Ripley discovers she is carrying an Alien. The prisoners are arguing about the course of action to be taken; now that the Alien is free again, there is nothing stopping it from attacking them anywhere in the complex. One of the prisoners lights a match for his cigarette, which reminds all others of the Alien’s fear of fire. They all decide to move to the furnace area immediately.

Dillon’s Advice
There is some added dialog in the scene where Ripley tells Dillon about the Queen inside of her, mainly about the nature of the Queen and the consequences of its survival. Also, when Ripley fights with Dillon after he refuses to kill her, there is an added line where Dillon says “Go kill yourself”.

Motivating the Prisoners
During the scene where the remaining prisoners are meeting to discuss Dillon and Ripley’s plan to terminate the alien, there are expanded dialog scenes concerning Dillon telling them they have a choice to get even with the creature for destroying the others. Ripley then questions 85’s statements that the rescue team is on its way. The scene ends with Dillon saying “You’re all going to die. This is as good a place as any to take your first steps to heaven. Only question is how you check out. Do you want it on your feet or on your fuckin’ knees beggin’? I ain’t much for beggin’. Nobody ever gave me nothin’. So I say, fuck that thing, let’s fight it!”

Tunnel Sequence
There are a few new scenes in the tunnel sequence. First of all, some of the prisoners discuss religion at the beginning. They laugh hysterically, which freaks out David. This replaces a scene where David is told by another prisoner named Jones what he’s supposed to do. Jones leaves and David says to himself, “This was her idea.” (Theatrical Images 1-7). There’s another scene in the theatrical showing 85 waiting for the rescue team. (Theatrical Image 8). In another scene, David finds Vincent’s body in the tunnel. (Image 12). Also, Dillon shouts to Troy to help Frank and Jude. (Image 13 – DVD Subtitles Incorrect). As the alien rampages through the tunnel, Ripley asks what the prisoners are doing (when two of them guarding the piston run off) and Dillon says “Improvising” (Images 14-16).

Ripley’s Death
There is more dialog when Bishop II confronts Ripley as he refers to the malignancy inside her and the great courage she has shown. There is also an added scene where the Asian medic explains the procedure to remove the alien from Ripley. When 85 hits Bishop II with the pipe there is an additional moment which Bishop II can be seen in pain and wiping blood from his face. He shouts “I’m not a droid!” After this, Bishop sees one of his crew-members with a camera trying to film Ripley, and he tells the man with the camera, “No pictures!” Several shots of Ripley preparing for her jump, as she looks hesitant and nervous. She looks at Bishop and says “You’re crazy.” right before she jumps. Ripley’s death scene is a completely alternate take: In the theatrical version, as Ripley fell, the alien queen burst out of her chest, here she simply falls into the lead. Her body can be seen burning up just before it hits the lead.

  1. Am I the only one who prefers the directors cut?? There were some good ideas and scenes from the assembly cut, but overall I think the directors cut is better. The same goes for the whole Alien franchise there is a reason why those scenes don’t make it at all in the first place. I saw Camrons Aliens with the cut scenes and I thought the cut scenes were terrible, awkward and at times cringing and it disrupted the flow of the movie. As for Alien 3,yes the characters seemed more developed but the directors version or cinema version was better. Firstly because the dog made much more sense than an ox and the ox scene was a contradiction to the whole Alien mythology and life cycle, how can the Alien be born out of an ox? when the ox was found dead? The Alien needs the host to be alive, when Ripley asked Dilon to kill her, how would that have stopped the queen from still bursting out? so that is clear contradiction plus it is well known that the alien needs the host to stay alive in order to feed off its nutrients until it is capable of leaving the body, but in the assembly cut the ox was found dead! so that just made the assembly cut totally invalid just with that one scene alone!. So the dog scene made more sense plus the alien resembled more of a dog than a a dame ox and to further make a clown out of the Aliens the guy pics up the dead face hugger and says “and what shall I do with this?” I found that stupid. Furthermore, there was no mention or scene of Spike the dog in the assembly cut then why do we see a scene with the guy cleaning out the ventilation shaft shouting out for “Spike” who the hell is spike? when it was never showcased in the assembly cut, only those who have seen the directors cut know who that poor dog was. Finally, the ending was terrible she jumps off and goes straight into the lava and the end ta taa. It seemed almost comical. However, in the directors cut we see the queen come out in mid air and she grabs it and hugs and you feel this sense of connection of love for the creature that has haunted her all her life. To end, I think Alien 3 with all the crazy shit that it went through was a great film and made perfect sense to me to kill off newt and co. It seemed more real and authentic that when you thought things couldn’t get bad they just did and imagine newt in a prison tagging along with Ripley moaning every 2 seconds like she did in Aliens, plus this was supposed to be a perfect ending that in the end the Alien won it finally got her but than she turns around and sticks a middle finger at the company and the Alien as she sacrifices herself thus we did not need newt or hicks this was supposed to be an ending to all the pain and suffering Ripley suffered, dying for what she believed in which was to protect humanity from such a dangerous life form it was an ending to all her suffering, now I can’t see newt jumping in with her holding hands. Thus this is were the chapter ended for Ripley, they could have made more Alien movies post Alien 3 but left Ripley out of it instead some idiot had an idea to re clone Ripley in some comedy called Alien resurrection, I get shivers every time I mention that movie. It should have been a new crew or a new hero or do a prequel which is closer to something like Alien Isolation where Amanda Ripley comes looking for her mum now that would be a movie! why is it the gamers always get it right!!
