The objective of the first Alien is one of the most iconic in cinema. Ripley, already undressed for cryosleep, is forced to face off against the xenomorph one last hour, using only her witticisms to knock the apex predator out of her escape shuttle.
It gave us one of the most badass girls ever seen on movie and turned Sigourney Weaver into a bona fide movie star.
But in a new EW interview promoting the May 19 release of Alien: Covenant, director Ridley Scott confirms a rumor that he wanted to kill off Ripley! He explains 😛 TAGEND
“I thought that the foreigner should come in, and Ripley harpoons it and it makes no difference, so it slams through her mask and rends her head off.”
That would have been a travesty; but what he wanted to happen next would have just been RIDICULOUS.
He wanted to end the movie with the ALIEN pressing buttons and then saying, simulating the captain from earlier, “I’m signing off.” WTF ??
Luckily, this was a case where studio exec SAVED the film, threatening to fire Scott if he didn’t come to his senses.
