Sigourney Weaver Wasn't Supposed To Survive The First Alien! (And Other Alternate Endings That Will Rip Your Head Off!)

| Filed under: Film FlickersNostalgiaGirl Power

no title

The ending 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 time, using only her wits to knock the apex predator out of her escape shuttle.

It gave us one of the most badass women ever seen on film 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:

"I thought that the alien should come in, and Ripley harpoons it and it makes no difference, so it slams through her mask and rips 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, mimicking the captain from earlier, "I'm signing off." WTF??

Luckily, this was a case where studio execs SAVED the film, threatening to fire Scott if he didn't come to his senses.

If you thought THAT ending would have changed everything, just check out some of these other amazingly different alternatives…
