A few Aliens deleted scenes were featured on the Alien Anthology Blu-Ray release. These scenes weren’t in the Theatrical cut or the Special Edition cut.

Ripley’s Daughter
There’s some slight extra dialogue at the end of the scene where Burke tells Ripley about her daughter. Burke says: “There are some promises you just can’t keep” and the scene ends there.

  1. I just noticed that that in the opening scene on the Sulaco. As the list of names runs down a computer screen, Hudson’s name does not appear. It is possible that his name appears at the end of the list and can’t be seen because the shot fades prior. However, this is unlikely as the list is in order of command authority with Gorman, Apone and Hicks listed first and non military, Carter and Ripley listed last. Lended weight to the idea that the entire list can be seen. Here’s a theory, Hudson’s name may not appear because he might have been a last minute addition. He mentions later that he had four more weeks left in the corps. This also might explain why the squads are uneven, 4 and 5. Doesn’t really make sense though, unless Hudson’s computer skills are more valuable than made apparent in the film.


  2. Noticed something very weird today. While watching the Aliens SE on laserdisc I saw the
    “Entering the Colony” scene where Gorman, Burke and Ripley are greeted by Frost and Hicks at the door. I was doing a PQ comparison with the Blu Ray and to my surprise this scene is omitted.
    I would have swore this scene was on the Blu Ray. I used to have the SE on DVD and I’m all but positive it’s on that disc as well.
    Why was this scene omitted from the Blu Ray? It’s one of those things I would have sworn that was on the Blu Ray if I hadn’t just seen it. Again, weird.
