The last shreds off the cutting room floor have been put back into Aliens, as the infamous Burke Cocoon scene has been reinstated along with several other short moments and lines that were never included in any other cut of the film.


I wanted to see the Burke scene back in the film, but thought that I may as well put everything else back in as well.

Change List:

- Burke comments on promises after Ripley says she promised her daughter she'd be home - Spunkmeyer quotes Danny Glover's age comment a whole year before Lethal Weapon - Burke cracks a joke seeing the ruined Colony on the view screens - Drake comments on his lack of care for Newt - Newt tries to run off before they leave for the Terraformer, Hicks catches her - Hicks tries to stay optimistic when Ripley assumes the Aliens will get them - Ripley finds Burke cocooned on her way to rescue Newt.
