Aliens: Director’s Cut (1986)
Seventeen minutes of footage James Cameron found it difficult to cut from the original Aliens is back in Aliens: The Director’s Cut. Originally released on Laserdisc on a limited run, many of us had to wait until the 1999 DVD release. Extra scenes include Ripley in a virtual reality garden, back story about Newt’s family, and a tunnel scene where automated gun turrets vainly try to fend off the alien threat.
