Aliens (1986)

Question: Has there ever been an explanation as to why the number "57" appears throughout the film? The number appears specifically three times: Ripley was floating in space for 57 years, the sentry guns have a model number of 571, and 157 colonists were killed. It just seems like the number comes up too many times to be a coincidence.

Answer: I have done some research looking into this, and I can't find anything about it. Only stuff talking about her being asleep for 57 years. I believe the other two occurrences are in fact coincidence. If it was meant to signify anything, it would likely have appeared more and as it's own number of 57. Not pat of 571 or 157.

Logan (2017)

Trivia: Lennie Loftin plays Jackson in this film, the land developer trying to muscle the Munson family off their ranch by sabotaging their water supply. In 3:10 to Yuma he played the very similar role of Hollander, a land owner trying to muscle the Evans family off their ranch by cutting off their water supply. Both films were directed by James Mangold.
