    On starting watching Outland I immediately noticed the similar theme tune to Alien (yes both wrote by Jerry Goldsmith) and also the revelling of the film name was similar although not the same.
    Once the titles were over there was computer typing explaining the location and what was going on.
    Both film concerned miners.
    The peak caps were similar and also I’m sure some of the sets were the same as well.

    Models for both films were by Martin J Bower. A lot of the optical work was by Roy Field, who also worked on Alien.
