Alien: The Extended Cut

Author
Time

Hello everyone, for awhile I have been working on an Alien Extended cut for sometime and I did finish it once, but sadly my cut has been lost, unless I find it again. I ask you all to help make this film. I have released some footage on my youtube account. also I recommend DestonTC as well for some footage. so if youre up to the challenge to make the movie extended i’m excited to hear back. If I remember also. when I first cut the movie it almost reached the original 3 hour length.

I’m really curious how you managed to get it to 3 hours. The edit I did ended up at 2:30. And I used just about everything I could find. The only thing I held off on was the serious amount of exterior ship footage. But even then it isn’t that much.

Well I almost did it was aroun the 2:55:00 I used everything that look right from all the documentaries.

Sources were

Giger’s Alien 1979
The Alien Legacy 1999
The Alien Saga 2002

I also assume you used all elements of the theatrical and director’s cut…?

Yes that is what I used. the only parts I used from the Director’s Cut where the Cocoon Scene and the Alien and cat scene

Actually, in the director’s cut, these scenes are longer:

12:39 Min. - 14:14 Min. The Nostromo Crew is examining the mysterious signal more precisely. It sounds strange. It is neither a radio signal nor is it a voice. But the crew finds out which planet the signal comes from.

34:24 Min. - 34:36 Min. Kane is examining the egg more accurately. The facehugger moves. Then, there is a take of Kane bowing to the right with a gun in his hand. The last part of this shot is not in the DC, but in the Theatrical Version, but the main part of the take with Kane bowing is missing in the latter. (Might have to get quick snippets of each to get longest scene, which I would love)

37:43 Min. - 38:32 Min. The crew without Ripley is looking through a glass window into the laboratory. Parker is wondering how Kane can breathe and suggests to freeze the facehugger. Ripley comes down the ladder, Lambert goes for her and slaps her (because Ripley wouldn’t open the lock before). The men get the women apart. Parker says that Ripley hadn’t been wrong.

66:37 Min. - 67:02 Min. In the DC the dropping of the condensed water on Brett’s face in the room with the chains is being interrupted by a short ceilingshot of the lurking alien. Then another part of the close-up to the face. Again, an DC-exclusive take of the alien hanging on the chains. Now facetake part 3 from the Theatrical Version (but strongly cut, so you’d need the longer quick cut from theatrical), again followed by a new ceilingshot with the alien observing Brett.

67:53 Min. - 68:09 Min. After Brett’s screams Ripley and Parker come running into the room with the chains. They’re looking for Brett. When Parker looks up, blood drips on him.

77:02 Min. - 71:09 Min. After the shortened take of Lambert from the TC you can see Ripley stand up and then again Lambert. The DC then begins later compared to the Theatrical Cut, when Ripley already goes to Mother’s door, while in the TC you can still see the thing with the key card.

94:17 Min. - 96:07 Min. Ripley climbs down a ladder and ends up in a room in which Dallas is weaven on the wall as a host for the alien. Dallas whimpers for his death. Ripley grants his wish with the help of the flamethrower.

There are a couple of scenes that require quick snippets from Theatrical Cut to get longest cut, but they are there. I’d love to see this project to completion. If I can help in any way, I’ll be glad to. Just let me know.

Ooh, fun. 2:55:00 did you say?? Jeepers creepers how in the world? I only ever got it to 2:31:51! 20 more minutes I didn’t know about, I can’t fathom. I never used anything from Giger’s Alien, so that’s probably it? shrug

Those shots of Parker are from some old teaser trailer that’s actually in 16x9. Good stuff. I put it right before the shot where he goes to refuel the flamethrower. There’s also some shots of the landing in that trailer. It’s on one of the DVDs, not sure which. Haven’t thought about this shit in ages lol.

That Alien: Cocoon of Love video is from the Enhancement Pods that were included when they did the Blu Ray version of Beast Within. Not on the DVD.

Also, are your chestburster and cocoon videos my versions from YouTube that you added to? You should sort out your aspect ratios, I noticed the new footage from the chestburster video was still in 4x3.

If you need any information, hit me up! Can’t wait to see what you put out!

wow. I never expected to hear from you. what inspired me to do this was your work on the virtual workprint. did you ever finish your virtual workprint cut of Alien? because I would definitely love to watch it. and also I used some of Sigourney Weaver’s Screen tests. which definitely helped.

The screen tests?.. Interesting. That’s actually a great idea, I strayed away from using them because they weren’t using the final sets or costumes and weren’t intended to be used in the film, but it would be so interesting to see them incorporated.

I never had any hand in the original virtual workprint. It’s a fantastic edit, and it inspired me to try my hand at this, but I never worked on it.

I finished mine about two years ago but never uploaded it anywhere, but I randomly decided to a few days ago. Check out my thread about it. https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/ALIEN-VIRTUAL-WORKPRINT-V2-EXTENDED-WORKPRINT-working-title/id/17815
