What the ‘newborn’ from Alien: Resurrection was supposed to look like
And the last one of the saga : Alien Resurrection
You may have noticed that this tumblr never mentions the alien ‘newborn’ that appears at the end of Alien: Resurrection. This is because I hate it with a passion. I can’t even bear to look at it on screen, and for the purposes of this tumblr I prefer to pretend that it never happened.
Turns out, Resurrection screenwriter Joss Whedon was also displeased with how it ended up looking on screen. His design, as recounted on jimsmash, sounds a helluva lot cooler than what we saw on screen:
“An alien, to be sure, but nothing we’ve seen so far, its forelegs arch out of its back like spiders legs, its back legs set on enormous haunches, thick and powerful. Its head is long, eyeless, like the others, but along its white expanse red veins, coming out of the skin and running like thick black hairs to the back. It has retracted pincers at the side of head that come out when its tongue does. Its much bigger the others, nearly the size of the queen herself. And it’s bone white.”
I still don’t like messing with the aliens’ established life-cycle, but this thing would’ve looked much more awesome than the abomination we saw.
