ALIENS


Over the years,there was talk about many mythical scenes that have supposedly been filmed, lost, seen exclusively at crew/press screenings and even released on VHS or 8mm film in a different country somewhere.  You've probably heard them yourself. Of course, I'm referring to scenes from the Alien Trilogy.

There is one mythical scene that's still circulating today, which has been around for years. You may have heard of it. It's a scene involving Ripley and her Reebok shoes inside the med-lab Of course, hearing this from so many people all those years ago I believed this to be true and set about learning what I could about the sequence and why it was removed.

As Ripley realizes Newt is sleeping under the bed, she removes her Shoes. When she wakes up, seeing they are in danger, goes to feel for her pulse rifle only to discover it's no longer there. Coming from under the bed she put's the shoes back on, giving us a clear viewing of the Reebok logo, before the facehugger leaps out at her. There are many variations of how this scene goes.  The reason why it was supposedly cut was before its theatrical release FOX lost it's licensing contract with Reebok and so the scene had to be removed because the Reebok logo is clearly seen on the screen. However, on its opening night in Cinemas across America, the scene was intact and so was seen only during that time. That's when I began to question the scene's authenticity. Firstly, why would Ripley remove her shoes before going under the bed? Second, why would you take the time to put them back on knowing there are facehuggers lose inside the med-lab? And if the scene was removed due to the Reebok logo then why didn't previous and later scenes featuring Ripley's shoes removed?

But all the evidence I found later sugest that scene was never a part of the movie.  Even after hearing people swear that they have seen it on the night of opening, premiere of Aliens.
