Box Office figures table[edit]

Please do not revert the edit which clearly states the true fact that the figures quoted are not inflation adjusted. Without this it may mislead people into grossly overestimating the number of tickets sold for the more recent films/movies. Perhaps anyone reverting the edit would care to find inflation adjusted figures to add to the table? Japanscot (talk) 12:21, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Removal of "Top Critics" scores[edit]

I recently removed the Rotten Tomatoes "Top Critis" scores from the article. That edit was reverted with the summary comment "get consensus first". But in my edit summary I indicated that these edits were based on the Film MOS (specifically the section MOS:FILM#Reception). If you check that section of the MOS you will see that my edits were in line with it. The MOS was recently changed as a result of discussions that took place over several weeks (which you can read here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Film/Archive 45 and Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Film). There is a consensus that has been established for a policy for all film articles, so I have reinstated my edit. 99.192.76.230 (talk) 11:57, 26 January 2013 (UTC) (=99.192.92.87)

Weyland-Yutani Corporation: "Building Better Worlds"[edit]

I believe that the Weyland-Yutani corporation really should have its own Wikipedia article instead of a search for it being redirected to this article on the Alien franchise. Considering fictional corporations such as Cyberdyne (Skynet), InGen, and CHOAM all have their articles, it is a real shame that Weyland-Yutani corp does not. 199.87.224.33 (talk) 19:09, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Section blanking[edit]

The entire "Expansion in Video Games" section has just gone. We'd better talk about this. What do you all think? 2A01:E35:8AB6:1930:E518:B3A9:325D:24A1 (talk) 21:59, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Another editor removed it without explanation. I've restored it. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 22:11, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

"Indirect Prequel"[edit]

This bit seems messy, and I think it would be better if Prometheus was moved to just after Alien Resurrection. As it is set in the same universe, and considered canon. Unlike the Alien VS Predator films. Charlr6 (talk) 18:46, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Prometheus is set before Alien 1 and features Weyland's CEO. The film sets the plot for Alien 1. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.225.164.144 (talk) 16:42, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Canonicity doesn't matter - it's not an entry in the franchise, so it cannot be placed after Resurrection.--MrChristensen (talk) 16:01, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
