With all the news surrounding Alien: Covenant and most recently, The Predator (formerly known as Predator 4), I figured it would be fun to look back at some lesser known aspects from the original Alien quadrilogy. Today we're focusing on the highly controversial design of Alien: Resurrection's Newborn Xenomorph - the abomination born from a cloning-induced, mutated Human / Xeno Queen Alien near the end of the film. Regarded as one of, if not the worst Alien designs by many members of the Alien fandom we look at some of the alternative deisgns created during the production of the film. Many of the original concepts followed the overall Alien look more closely by having certain trademark characteristics - a biomechanical exoskeleton, no eyes for example. Some even ressembled the creatures conceptualized for Ridley Scott's Prometheus!
Whether you hated the Newborn or loved it, check out this neat behind-the-scenes video from Studio ADI and let us know your thoughts of these alternative designs in the comments section!
