In the Aliens novelization, Bishop speculates that a 'more bolder' synthetic than himself might actually be able to walk among the aliens unharmed. David certainly believes so, trying to win over a Neomorph by showing a lack of fear. And until Oram kills it, his belief seems to be justified. See more »
In the second half of the movie, in the first scene where Daniels is sitting on the ground out in the rain by the laptop asking the crew on the ship to drop the cargo lift we can hear her voice loud and clear, but her mouth is not moving. See more »

The film's IMAX release, in selected screens, presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
No suspense. No Horror. A permanent stain on the franchise that makes you feel dirty after having watched it.
I had pretty much no expectations going into this film. I had avoided much of the marketing material beforehand and knew very little about it other than it being a sequel to Prometheus, which I actually thought was a half decent film and a worthy prequel to Alien.
I'm not sure what went wrong with this film, but it is no exaggeration to say it is one of the worst films I've had the misfortune of sitting through. There is not one redeeming scene. The story is disjointed and quite frankly a complete mess. The editing is horrendous, the score completely forgettable and the cinematography is weirdly terrible.
Even Michael Fassbender cannot save this awful dirge. The CGI xneomorph will haunt my dreams for quite some time. Not because it's an imposing and scary alien in this film, but because the CGI is some of the worst you'll see from a movie this year.
Alien and Alien 2 were as close to cinematic perfection as you're going to get. Please avoid this dreadful film.
