* In the original ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' series, the Weyland-Yutani corporation appears to be the dominant commercial entity. The expedition in ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' was funded by Weyland, as was the one in the pseudo-prequel ''{{Film/Prometheus}}'', while ''Film/AliensVsPredatorRequiem'' shows Yutani corporation showing up to investigate recovered technology at the end, and is implied to already have some knowledge. According to WordOfGod, this meant to imply that England and Japan become the major superpowers of the future. ''Film/AlienResurrection'' takes it further by mentioning Weyland-Yutani got bought out by UsefulNotes/{{Walmart}}.
