Alien 3

Question: How come it takes so long for the alien in Ripley to burst out? Every other movie the alien comes out within a day and here it seems to take way too long.

Answer: It was most likely just been implanted when the ship landed or being a Queen Mother would take longer to incubate.

Question: Assuming that Ripley wasn't infected with the queen before ending upon fury 161, would the facehugger implanted the queen embryo into the dog/ox or use one of the prisoners assuming it can choose which embryo to deposit first.

Darth Crucible

Answer: It could be the Facehugger either has a short life span or a short period of time to lay her egg.

Continuity mistake: Just after the doctor started the post mortem on that little girl, the front of his gown is covered with blood. Yet, a few seconds later, after the two other guys appear, his gown looks better, with less blood. And during the whole post mortem scene, the blood spot actually changes its size a few times.

More quotes from Alien 3

Trivia: The film had a notoriously troubled production, with several writers and directors dropping out of the project during development. With a looming release date, sets were built and a crew was assembled before a script was even settled on, and the final draft had to be written around the sets that had already been built. David Fincher, then a popular music video and commercial director, was chosen to helm the film, but he had nonstop creative difficulties with the producers and studios. He has since gone on to disown the film, as he feels it isn't reflective of his vision.
