Alien Resurrection

Call (Winona Ryder) turns out to be a robot. Ripley discovers that the alien queen has mutated and has given birth to an alien/human hybrid. The hybrid chases Ripley onto the Betty. After it kills the remaining marine, Ripley cuts herself and with her blood destroys the airlock window. The hybrid is sucked out into space and only Call, Ripley, Vreiss and Johner escape while the military ship crashes into France. In the theatrical release Call and Ripley look outside the ship's window and gaze at an island. In the special edition they land in (a now nuked) Paris. Call tells Ripley that it's the type of place they get could lost in.

Other mistake: In the scene where Ripley throws the basketball at Johner, Christie says to Ripley, "Ok, I've got a new game, tag .." He hits her with the handles straight in the face once, he misses the next shot, misses again, and Ripley hits him to the ground, but you neither see or hear the handles fall. (00:23:15)

Trivia: Sigourney Weaver actually makes the basketball shot. Even though the ball is out of shot for a second, she made the shot with no assistance.

More trivia for Alien Resurrection

Question: If Ripley was operated on and an alien removed a few days ago, how come they have a fully grown queen who is laying eggs, 8 to be precise as there are 8 people who have been ingested and turned into aliens? But later, when most of the crew have ejected successfully or been killed when a hand grenade was thrown into their escape pod along with an alien, one of the scientists says there are 12 more? How can that be?

Chosen answer: Well firstly the queen was probably genetically engineered, like Ripley herself. A few days might be all the time they need to have a fully grown queen created. Secondly the 8 incubated victims were only the latest batch, they had been incubating people with xenomorphs for quite a time I suspect.

With regards to the quick growth of the alien queen, it is standard for the xenomorph in nearly every film they appear (Aliens is the only exception, the only chestburster shown in the film is quickly killed by Apone) to grow to full size in around one day. Presumably the same is true for the queen.
