    Wishing all the Alien fans out there HAPPY ALIEN DAY!

    TRIVIA QUESTIONS

    Q: Why is 4/26 Alien Day?
    A: The planet that the aliens were found on was LV-426.

    Q: What was the original title of Alien?
    A: "Star Beast"

    Q: What is the name of crew's cat?
    A: Jonesy

    Q: Which crew member was a last-minute replacement?
    A: Ash

    Q: Who is the first crew member to die?
    A: Kane

    Q: Which character says: "If we ain't outta here in ten minutes,
    we won't need no rocket to fly through space"?
    A: Parker

    Q: The blue laser lights used in the alien ship's egg chamber were
    borrowed from what band?
    A: The Who

    Q: How many takes did it take to film the chest-bursting scene?
    A: The scene was filmed in ONE TAKE with four cameras. John Hurt
    (Kane) stuck his head, shoulders and arms through a hole in the
    table, linking up with a mechanical torso that was packed with
    compressed air (to create the forceful exit of the alien) and
    lots of ANIMAL GUTS. The rest of the cast were not told that
    REAL BLOOD AND GUTS were being used so their reactions would
    be more genuine.

    If you get cremated after you die, have your ashes put
    in an hourglass. That way you can still be part of
    family game night!
