Trivia: At the premiere of Alien, religious zealots set fire to the model of the alien, believing it to be the work of the devil.
Suggested correction: Myth. While this verbatim description of the vandalism that destroyed Giger's model is still bouncing around the Internet, blaming "religious zealots, " there is apparently no documented factual evidence to substantiate it. In fact, the only source for the "religious zealot" claim comes from David A. McIntee's 2005 book "Beautiful Monsters: The Unofficial and Unauthorized Guide to the Alien and Predator Films, " which has been criticized for too much opinion, bias and speculation, and too little documented fact. In actual documented accounts, the arson of Giger's models at the Egyptian Theatre is blamed simply on "vandals, " with no mention of motivation, religious or otherwise.

In the shot of the alien's tail wrapping around the back of Lambert's legs right before it kills her, the floor is different to what it was before, there is water suddenly falling from the ceiling when there wasn't before and her trousers have changed from white to blue. This is because that shot was originally intended to be used when Brett was killed.
When Kane is in the egg pit on the alien ship and shines his light on one of the eggs, the shape we see moving inside is in fact the hands of director Ridley Scott clad in rubber gloves.
