1- Partial content compared to other releases.
2 -Content is under "Film, Finish and Release Photo Archive" on this release.
3- These are Deleted/Extended Scenes absent from both the Theatrical and Special Edition versions.
4- This content is included in the Laserdisc archive but split into two sections throughout that feature on this release.
5- This content is included in the Laserdisc archive but is presented differently on this release.
6- Some of the storyboard content included in the Laserdisc archive on this release.
7- This feature can be accessed from any 20th Century Fox Bluray with BD-Live capabilities.
8- Only content that pertains to this specific movie or the entire Alien series is indexed here.
9- Some content may overlap with other features on this and other releases.
10- The bonus disc was NOT included with the 2014 Quadrilogy Box Set Re-release.
11- This digital feature is available to stream up to 10 times across multiple devices until 12/31/2016. There have been some reports of this feature showing up in VUDU accounts after redeeming the code for the movie (as opposed to the code specific for the feature).
12- This includes the Special Edition DVD, 2014 Re-release Alien Quadrilogy Box Set DVD, Alien Triple Pack DVD and the Alien vs. Predator Total Destruction Collection DVD.
13- This includes the Ultimate Showdown Limited Edition Set DVDs, Collector's Edition DVD, and Alien Quadrilogy Disc DVDs.
14- 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 the individual movie Bluray retains the MU-TH-UR feature but without the additional Alien Anthology Bonus Blurays it simply becomes a trivia track.
15- Plays automatically before the movie.

NOTES:
You can't go wrong with this release. Every Alien movie and a huge and excellent collection of features that contains all previously released content and tons of stuff new to this release.

Aliens 30th Anniversary Edition Bluray
NOTES:
The Aliens 30th Anniversary Edition contains the exact same Bluray disc as the Standard Bluray (it omits the MU-TH-UR related features) and provides the only new feature via digital download. So if you already have the Alien Anthology release try to find someone to just sell you the digital code. Fair warning though that it is HIGHLY likely we will get another Aliens release in the near future. You can almost bet that we will at least see a 35th Anniversary Edition release.
