1- Named "Alternate Music and Production Sound" on this release.
2- This release has only three screen tests while others have five.
3 - This content is contained in the Art and Photo Gallery section on this release.
4 -This release contains partial content for this feature compared to other releases.
5- Only content that pertains to this specific movie or the entire Alien series is indexed here.
6- These are scenes that were restored into the Director's Cut version that can be viewed individually with this feature.
7- Some content may overlap with other features on this and other releases.
8- The bonus disc was NOT included with the 2014 Quadrilogy Box Set Re-release.
9- These are scenes not restored into the Director's Cut version.
10- Plays automatically before the movie.
11- This feature can be accessed from any 20th Century Fox Bluray with BD-Live capabilities.
12- The content from this feature can be found in the Laserdisc Archives feature on this release.
13- This release does not have an "Outtakes" section but the content is available from other features.
14- This includes the Director's Cut DVD, the 20th Anniversary Edition DVD, Alien Triple Pack, and the Alien vs. Predator Total Destruction Collection.
15- This includes the Director's Cut DVD, Alien Quadrilogy Box Set DVD, and the Ultimate Showdown Limited Edition Set DVD.
16- This is a mish-mash of scenes that were, and were not, restored into the Director's Cut. As such some of these scenes show up on other releases in different features (Laserdisc archives, etc.) and sometimes even with different lengths and names. The Alien Anthology Blurays contain all these scenes under one feature or another.
17- The "Data Tags" part of this feature allows you to flag certain special features as you watch the film. After watching the film you then insert one of the Alien Anthology Bonus Blurays and you can recall, and play, the feature. That is why multiple entries are flagged here as exclusive since the actual feature carries across multiple discs. Note that individual the movie Bluray retains the MU-TH-UR feature but without the additional Alien Anthology Bonus Blurays it simply becomes a trivia track.
