An ALIEN VS PREDATOR trailer that looks like an ALIEN VS PREDATOR trailer should?!?!?

Hey folks, Harry here... color me happy - but color me cautious too. I just took a look at ALIENS VS PREDATOR: REQUIEM red band trailer that just hit the web over at IGN. And holy fuck does it look like Christmas... You never can tell what's going to happen when ex-visual effects guys get put in charge of a big geek project. But it definitely looks to have a better pedigree than the last one. And this trailer is balls deep awesome. Now... let's pray that what we just saw is only 1/100th of the awesomness in the film... and not 99% of the coolness that it has. Right? Right.

    I have my doubts...

    by ZsAsZz

    they need to end this before they start going direct to video.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:38 p.m. CST

    Still... it could be cool...

    by OtisSpofford

    I mean, they wouldn't screw us over again, would they? Not us earnest fans with our hard-earned ticket money... would they? Huh?

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:39 p.m. CST

    the trailer alone was better than the 1st

    "FUCK YOU!" ha, gotta love that in a trailer

    Holy Shit that looks good.

    Yo! Dat' shit looks like Balls To Da' Walls' Mayhem.

    by glodene

    I hope it's rated R.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:46 p.m. CST

    looks corny as hell

    by misnomer

    seriously, this just looks like the first one with blood added. Theres nothing remotely classy about it...and theres no hint of a story either. This pretty much looks like the trailer for Moris damning script review....

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:47 p.m. CST

    So this is Definitely rated R

    by slder78

    Right? I has to be. Predator just went wolverine up a guy's skull. So it CAN'T be PG(watered down pussified)-13.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:48 p.m. CST

    Holy shit... a predator actually kicking alien ass?

    by Boondock Devil

    It absolutely drove me insane at how the Predators pretty much jobbed to the aliens in the first shitty film. This has a chance to save a little face... or getting said face burned off by acid blood from exploding alien heads.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:48 p.m. CST

    Maybe there is hope??

    by BetaRayBill07

    John Rambo trailer-ish definitely. We'll see I guess, as long as they don't kill Reiko. Mmmmmm......Reiko....

    by dudemandude

    Predator's gotta eat! at least that's what I hear

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:55 p.m. CST

    I couldn't tell what the fuck was going on...

    by Traumnovelle

    ..but I guess it looks ok. I don't know. Is Paul Anderson directing it again? I remember the FIRST Alien Vs. Predator trailer not being that shabby, and that movie sucked my balls and licked my ass. I hate that fucking movie so very, very much. So I approach this shit with extreme trepidation. Cool Predator two-fer head shot though. And I like hearing the Alien/elephant trumpet sound effect, I don't remember them using that in the first AVP. Whatever, it'll probably suck.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:56 p.m. CST


    by Sir Loin

    Looks great, if it does well I hope Fox lets these guys do a film that takes us back to the Alien's homeworld, perhaps bringing in the creatures from the wrecked vessel in the first ALIEN film. Imagine how cool that would be...aliens, predators, and the elephant-looking things (and perhaps some humans thrown in). YES! Get some balls, Fox--DO EET!

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 8:56 p.m. CST

    I'm a sucker for Alien and Predator

    by HeWhoCannotBeNamed

    I'll be there. Just like the first. Comics rule, but this flick might do it. Might.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9 p.m. CST

    Looks like a decent b-movie, at least.

    by oceanic86

    Yeah, the effects look a bit cheap, and the plot sounds a bit generic, but at least we're going to get some R-rated Aliens and R-rated Predators killing the fuck out of each other. As others have said, this trailer alone provides more of that than the first AVP could ever hope to.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:05 p.m. CST

    Why does it gotta come out on Christmas though???

    by Shermdawg

    How the hell will that help the box office? Christmas releases aren't all that successful are they? And because of the date, I seriousy doubt they'll be a midnight showing in most areas. Seriously, I know next spring/summer is jampacked, but a move would be a good decision.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:06 p.m. CST

    by Shermdawg

    No sir, the Alien homeworld should be off limits to anyone but Scott or if need be Cameron.<br><br> But I heard somewhere that Rid "said" that there really isn't a homeworld and the "Space Jockey" bioengineered them. (I really need to ditch my old dvds and get those jampacked deluxe editions from a few years back.)

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:14 p.m. CST

    Dunno if that rumor came from sumthin in those dvds

    by Shermdawg

    Or somewhere else.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:19 p.m. CST


    by Saltoner

    I hate always being so negative, but really, this looks like shit!

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:19 p.m. CST


    by Sir Loin

    Agreed, Scott or Cameron would be proper for the Alien homeworld film, if Fox would grow a pair and pony up the funds to make such an epic. The "space jockey" still creeps me out all these years later, too.<br><br> least the TARGET Greatland/Costco/Sam's Club version of AVP2 wasn't made :D

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:22 p.m. CST


    by jimmy_009

    The problem is it's the same thing over and over. Someone needs to find a new angle on it, like James Cameron did. Until then it's just run of the mill humans running from aliens bullshit we've seen a hundred times before. Also setting it on modern day Earth again? Fuck off. We all know it's a cost cutting measure.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:24 p.m. CST

    It did look pretty good..

    by UMAGA

    Probably cause i'm expecting the worst. Looks like a real deal Predator movie at the start, there. You'd think FOX would try their best to grab the comic story with the way comic book movies are these days..

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:25 p.m. CST

    they should have stopped at Aliens

    by Leafy McPlantsalot

    that looked like a fan made B movie. many times do i have to get worked up about a new Alien movie only to be disappointed. Damn you Fox. Damn you. Sigorney weaver and Hicks discover that the company has found the Alien homeworld. Sigorney weaver sets out to destroy it. Alien 3. Newt is left with her grandparents. Riply visits her in the beginning of the film. Whatever.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:25 p.m. CST

    So is it going to be rated R?

    by The Dum Guy

    It looks like it'll be a bit rougher than the first...

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:28 p.m. CST

    Alien-Predator Hybrid

    by Strshp2rpr

    You can see it around 1:14. Looks a little akward. I can already tell this is going to suck. Usually I'm a sucker for trailers, but there was way too much cheesiness and cgi gore for my tastes (how is it that we've actually regressed at filming gore since teh 80's? I thought karo syrup and food dye would be cheaper than cgi.). And I can't stand that it takes place here and ruins the continuity of all the other films. Damn you fox.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:31 p.m. CST

    did I see a PREDALIEN in that?!

    by Sir Loin

    Sure looked like it. Maybe it's the booze.

    smells like IMPROVEMENT!!

    by captainCAPSLOCK

    well, i wanted as little 'human' interference as possible in an Alien vs Predator movie, but at least these people aren't completely helpless wastes of space. looks like they even got a homage to Ripley character in there.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:34 p.m. CST

    wooh hoooo

    by boogy110

    You guys are some skeptical Mother fuckers. That looked awsome. Believe me, I know the first one sucked ass, but SO FAR this looks totally kick ass. Better than that predator 2 shit.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:39 p.m. CST

    I just watched Predator 2 the other day..

    by The Dum Guy

    So, continuity wise, the U.S. government knew about the Predators by at least 1997 AD, now if this is set ten years from then, wouldn't they have some kind of contigency plan for the Predators?<br><br>And if the government learns of the Aliens by this time, could they possibly make it to where the Corporation from Alien be in on the whole knowledge of both beings?<br><br><br>I wonder if they'll get Lance Henricksen to come back for another one...

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:42 p.m. CST

    alright...further review reminds me of DOOM

    by Sir Loin

    Remember how cool we thought that was going to be? All the best parts were in the trailer and it was NOTHING like the game was.<br><br>Plus I notice they are using the Alien design from ALIENS (ribbed head, lol) and that's just not as scary. Sorry dudes, you should have gone old-school ALIEN. At least the first AVP got that part correct.

    I saw no evidence of good storytelling in that trailer.

    by TheNorthlander

    Bad storytelling was the problem with the last, and buckets of blood won't save this one if it suffers from the same problem.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:46 p.m. CST

    Prepare to be disappointed

    by slithis67

    The trailer was okay, but it probably showed every kill (human, Alien, and Predator) from the entire movie. Aside from the respectable effects budget, it looks like your run-of-the-mill SciFi Channel movie with people moving cautiously through the woods while they're picked off by a sasquatch/alien/mutant spider. Is Bruce Boxleitner in it? :)

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:48 p.m. CST

    by The Dum Guy

    I just waited 6 minutes to hear a cracked out whale's mating call?<br><br>Did anyone else read on DarkHorizons how that there will be more than one monster, and that they will have scales that fall off and become "raptors" that kill people? Maybe it is a joke reference to GINO... I'm not sure if this movie will live up to the hype

    So where was the part that didn't look like garbage?

    by JackPumpkinhead

    Well, other than the shots directly stolen from the real movies...? And 99%? More like 109%. The real thing will most likely be even worse.

    by ThePorkChopExpress

    Never ever thought it would happen but that trailer made me want to actually see this movie! My only concern is the Ripley clone they have there. Obviously they've got the look of the film done well... hope it's a decent script!!

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 9:59 p.m. CST

    by Turd Furgeson

    Jack Bauer.. Nuff said.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 10:02 p.m. CST

    I've got it!!!

    by Leafy McPlantsalot

    at the end of the movie, the aliens are spreading, the predators can't stop them. the government is going to launch a missile on it's self but can't because the skynet missle defense system becomes self aware and destroys the earth. John conor then has to deal with terminators and aliens when he walks out of that bunker. Why fuck only one james cameron masterpiece when you can fuck 2 at the same time.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 10:04 p.m. CST

    Michelle Dessler is in this...

    by Osmosis Jones

    So I'm seeing it regardless. I LOVE YOU, REIKO! Actually, this looks a shitload better than the first film (which wasn't altogether that bad, the forced PG-13 aside). Color me impressed.

    Star Trek IV at

    by Sir Loin

    Like somebody else mentioned, it sounds like whales. Humpback whales from 1986. Required in the 23rd century to answer an alien probe before it destroys Earth. There's your JJ Abrams film, a prequel to ST:IV :D

    Isn't K-Mart bankrupt?

    by The Dum Guy

    I live in the town that has the ONLY K-Mart within a two hour drive, and thats only because it didn't have anything to compete with it until a year-and-half ago. And they have a shitty gun collection, nothing that I would choose to fight an Alien unless I had to, and forget about fraggin a Predator with a .22 or a 12-gauge.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 10:08 p.m. CST

    looks good

    by Shakes

    It definitely looks better than the script review from awhile back. It's nice that they're actually including the government and the army to an extent too, rather than some small town folks banding together. And yeah, I think that was the Predator Alien hybrid. That'll probably be to this movie what Spike was to Gremlins. Alos, it was pretty cool seeing the Predator actually killing people rather than having a weird level of sexual tension with them ala the last flick.

  • Aug. 24, 2007, 10:08 p.m. CST

    Leafy McPlantsalot

    by Sir Loin

    That's a great synopsis, however you forgot the Army's zombie-in-a-barrel of those Army guys is bound to crack open one of those cannisters and unleash zombies wanting BRAIIIIIINS to eat. Then they see how big the Alien's brains are and go ballistic with glee. Predators can't get a heat lock on the zombies because they're already dead. Chaos and hilarity ensue. Straight-to-DVD sequel ordered up.

Leafy, Alien was a Ridley Scott can't really say it's a Cameron masterpiece.

    I'll keep the faith despite the crushing suck that was AVP 1. Nosferatu is do you make a boring Alien vs Predator movie? The job's practically done for you.<p> The trailer's got a lot of 'people getting pwned by invisible predator' shots. I always thought that needed to be done more.

    by theJackalope

    It looks like a cross between An Original Sci-Fi Channel Presentation and a Roger Corman Concorde production with a slightly higher (but maybe not) budget filmed in some Canadian forest preserve. There won't be an original idea the entire film. It'll just be a rehash of all the usual cliches acted out by the usual unknown actor wannabees all drenched in karo syrup gore and a gooey layer of carmelized CGI with a side order of latex prosthetics. Pass, pass, pass, and pass!!!

    Why set this in the "now"?

    by aboriginal

    Better if this was off-world again and 100 years into the future where we can enjoy flying cars, replicants that do our bidding and warp speed exists. Something wrecks it for me with plain 'ol humans gettin' their assholes ripped between these two alien species. Where's the muthafucka that can read 'em both the riot act? That's what I wanna see.

    In Predator the government seems to know about the Predators and was obviously trying to get their techno gizmos. In the alien franchise - doesnt the company send Ripley and her crew there? Now I know it was based on a signal they recevied but possibly the government knows about the existence of ET out there and took the chance to get there hands on some Aliens for bio warfare. Makes alot of sense to me that possibly the Aliens and Preds both got to earth - I cant see why people have an issue with continuity ?

    RE: Why set this in the "now"?

    by godoffireinhell

    Because it's a fuck of a lot cheaper to make a movie that takes place on present-day Earth and can be filmed on location than a SF flick where you have to build ginormous sets for almost every scene. Surely you don't expect them to make a AVSP flick with a $100+ million budget? Unfortunately that's what it'd cost to have it take place in the future and/or on some other planet.

    I'm looking forward to it. It better be hard R. And for the record, I didn't hate AVP. I hate some of the continuity problems it it, and the PG-13 crap, but I didn't find is as terrible as some people do. But what I really want is just another Alien picture, with or without Sigourney. I'd love to see Mr. Scott go back and cover some of the awesome stuff from the first film, the "Space Jockey" the question of the origin of the Aliens, etc. Oh, and not some sort of fucking an Alien remake! Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised, and they would probably Pg-13 it if they did, and try to get all suckers who are going to fall for the Escape From New York remake to support it. Fuck remakes. Fuck them to hell. Let's get moving with more original Alien films. This Alien v.s. Predator stuff is somewhat interesting, but I'd much rather see a new Alien film, or even a new predator film. Both series have so much potential and so much more possibilities that could be done.

    taking this or the previous pile of shit as part of either Predator or Alien's movies canon. So, lets get this straight, right? MAYBE some Aliens will someday get to Earth, but only in a far, far future, when clone Ripley crashes the ship. And even so, its only a REMOTE possibility any of those fuckers survives. Oh, and pray for them to die, otherwise everybody in the future is fucked. Just like that. Aliens are unstoppable, they need only a single queen to overrun an entire planet. And the last encounter between a human and a Predator took place in 1997. We're still waiting for upcoming development regarding that event. Again: the last Predator seen in action in this planet attacked Los Angeles ten years ago (what a wonderful time it would be for a Predator 3 right now). Predators prefer warm weather, they DO NOT HUNT IN ICE PYRAMIDS. Oh, and also, PREDATORS AREN'T FUCKING PUSSIES. So, can we all agree? ALIENS VS PREDATOR is nothing more than a shitty movie franchise based on a mediocre video game based on two amazing movie franchises.

    R? Not a chance - PG-13

    by Spykid the 13th

    Mark my words, much of what you see in this "red band" trailer will likely be excised when the final say is said. The studio won't go for an 'R' on a "franchise" movie like this. There are a lot of things you can also tell from the ad: the characters will start with guns, but won't keep them for very long. There will be a LOT of running away. The fight scenes you're looking at in this ad constitute the last five to ten minutes of the movie. Creatures land in spacecraft (5 minutes). Meet the locals in town. (20 minutes), with some shots of the aliens crawling around getting their act together. A few people like random townsfolk will die bloodlessly, offscreen, or it will be so comically overdone as to be ridiculous. By the 40 minute mark, there will be the first big confrontation with the Aliens and the Predators, but the military or the civilian hunters will break it up and force them into bloodless hiding for much of the picture. Then, when the military shows up, the Predators will be attracted by the big guns and the ALiens will be attracted by the Predators, but we'll still get twenty more minutes of people standing around saying "If we stay here, we'll die!" and "I'm in charge of this operation, Kinkaid!" Following that will be about five to ten minutes of what you see in this ad, which will be butchered by the MPAA. After that, you'll get a little coda with one of those "They'll all be back!" big shots. Roll the Credits, get depressed at another studio lie.

    I don't think anyone could legitimately watch _this_ trailer and say that it is definitely going to be some de-balled POS. I counted (because I am a nerd) at least 14 humans killed just in the trailer. Head shots, spiked tails through torsos, skinless corpses hanging from trees, that chick who gets fucking Krull-ed to the wall, acid blood dripping down onto a man's unprotected face, and much more! I haven't even mentioned the shot of a predator taking out two human douchebags at once, which is one of the sickest things I've ever dreamed of a predator doing. They clearly shot this film so that you COULD NOT de-ball the thing without making it incomprehensible. I realize, of course, that all those exploding heads and green blood do not a good movie make, but they certainly do pass the time.

    by eman_1293

    designs are much better (and retro) than that 'Sharper Image' crap they shit all over the Predators in "AVP". And, I have to admit, that trailer kicked all kinds of sci-fi, B-movie ass. Well, until the CGI decapitations with P's plasmacaster, the "O.C" crossover, and the cliched "Fuck You!" I've seen in about every horror movie in the last five years. Oh, and that god-awful Predalien! Interesting idea, but seriously, aren't the Pasquale Bros. trying to sever ALL ties with the first movie!?

  • Aug. 25, 2007, 2:50 a.m. CST

    Holy shit, i'm excited.

    by Dpsmith

    This trailer kicked my ass. all the blood, gore, and scares that came with the best moments of both alien and predator filmms look like they are present in this movie. Some people, ok, most people's comments are complaining about lack of narrative and shit. Well, honestly, this is the first trailer for this movie, first trailers are often teaser's anyways. Besides, i believe their purpose here was to show just how different it is from Paul W.einer S.ucking Anderson's pussyfest film. This is evident in all of the holy-shit action presented throughout. That time could have been used for conveying their narrative choices, but c'mon, we want to see the aliens and predators fuck shit up as soon as possible. I remember reading that the idea for this movie was to go with the suspense and hardcore action that was found in the prime of both franchises. So, in a way this movie could also be considered a tribute to the classics, without much effort to expand on certain aspects of them the way Cameron did with Aliens. Anywyas, i'm excited as hell. Its not too often that sinking franchises can still make a comeback like this. Then again, the movie's not out yet. I could be full of shit, but hell what can i say, Aliens and predators are back where they should be; in a rated R no-holds-barred suspense/horror/action flick.

    by kwisatzhaderach

    Alien 3 had a lot of problems (all of them inflicted on Fincher by Fox) but at least it was a beautiful looking movie. Resurrection and AVP were awful and I expect this new one will be too. Although I do like Michelle Dessler. Anyways you can tell a real Alien film if Giler and Hill are credited. They took one look at the Resurrection script and said : "If you make this movie you destroy the franchise." Fox then went on to make the script and destroy the franchise.

Everybody had known about them forever because tons of them had been on earth. That first time when she only had to deal with ONE - in retrospect you gotta wonder what the hell she was whining about. You're complaining about ONE alien? A small town already killed tons of them (and Predators) hundreds of years ago using comparatively primitive technology!

Yeah, I know its not original (it's a sequel, y'know) but this looked like fucking Aliens and Predator 2 playing on the same screen together. FOURTH- Predator 2 was better than Predator. Sorry, get over it. Predator was just Alien meets Rambo. FIFTH- Not sold on the 'hybrid' just yet, but it's still early. By the way, hybrid really isn't a good word for it; technically all the Aliens are hybrids, coming from human or canine hosts. SIXTH- Yeah, I get a bit of a zombie vibe, but that's just the apocalyptic urban setting. SEVENTH- Weyland-Yutani _must_ have known about the Aliens in advance, or else they wouldn't have been able to assign an android to the Nostromo to ensure the mission before the warning beacon was found. So maybe the Company is involved with this movie and helps cover it all up.

    by master bitchfist

    i can see you are joking, but, from my point of view, the original Alien movies, all the way up to Jeunet's beautiful Europeanesque Resurrection, I consider to be true FILMS, real artistic visions. AVP and probably the same with AVP2, I consider to be comic book movies, or video game movies. Flicks that can only rank so high in the ladder of what is filmmaking. And it is because of their different classification, that I feel they do not exist in the same world as the original Alien films, at least in the sense that Tim Burton's Batman does not exist in the same world as Nolan's Batman, even though some of the same rules (not all but some) apply.

  • Aug. 25, 2007, 4:36 a.m. CST

    You can throw continuity out the window.

    by Psyclops

    But it still looks a hell of a lot better than the first film. There's a darker vibe even without all the violence and the creatures look much better in my opinion. I can't stand the idea of them fighting it out in present day Earth but they've screwed up the ALIEN franchise so bad that there's nothing left to do but hope that this movie will at least be entertaining. Honestly, I think the trailer looks pretty good and I'd be willing to give the film a chance but if this one ends badly then they just need to put the ALIEN franchise out of it's misery for good. I don't give a fuck what they do with the PREDATOR movies.

    by redfist

    that they have to fuck up the hole mythos of the series, so that they can make some money off it today. Setting the series in modern day seems cheap, why can we have a space opera with this? Oh I know why...cause those cheap fucks dont want to pay for it. Lets just set the film in modern time and we can film it in the back woods outside Motreal. AVP sucked so hard...the monster suits look WAY too fack, every set looked like a high school play and they had to put it on present day Earth....because.....CGI space shit is EXPENSIVE. Unless this thing rocks balls, I am not going to support it.

    Oh and...

    by kittercorn

    I don't mind modern day Earth as a setting (at least, not from what I've seen), but why does everyone insist that space would be expensive? Wasn't the budget for Aliens like $16 million? Yeah, I know, inflation whatever... But I still think it's sad that filmmakers don't seem to know how to make a movie today besides throwing a whole lot of money at it. Damn near every part of Aliens still holds up visually today, and there are cutting edge films from the last decade that can't make that claim anymore. But anyway, as has been said, this movie needs to be good, and it needs to make massive money, and then we'll get our space-epic. And no Alien homeworld shit... there's no way to pull that off logically; either they need something to keep their population in check, in which case we get a Jurassic Park 3 Spinosaurus moment: "Oh, hey, remember that cool movie monster you've loved for years? Well actually we've thought of something bigger and meaner. See, aren't we smart?" Or else the Aliens have killed every living thing on their planet, and then gone extinct from lack of food/breeding stock.

    by readingwriter

    Jesus, what a snooze. Movies are now aimed at 12 year olds who want everything to be "badass" but can't do a push-up. The franchise has obviously tanked because it followed the mold of Aliens as opposed to the original, but really, how many times is seeing an alien's head blow up cool? The original Alien was a science fiction film with horror; now these are all just action films with horror. This looks just like Resident Evil looks just like Event Horizon looks just like Transformers, nothing thought out for the world of the story, just piles of corpses. Yes, I know I'm an old fart, hand me my custard and back off you whippersnappers, but damnit, these glued-together cliche collections are such a frickin SNORE. Why even be interested in a genre which is squarely about kids buying statuettes--oh, sorry, maquettes or whatever--who don't play sports, don't read books they're not assigned, don't go through all the stupid but necessary growth experiences anymore? Perpetual adolescents who groove on gore and stereotype, and yes, nurse, I know it's time for my meds, but I wanna finish this, it's not important to anyone but me, but... You're right, why bother? Alien/Predator goodness, kickass badass asshat action, wheeeeeeee! Are the applause sounds going to be added to the movies now, so the zombie audiences will be prodded to react so they think they had a good time, or was that just from whatever "Scifi con" this was taken at---I'm GOING nurse...!

    I like Predator and Aliens. I'm not a big fan of any of the other movies in either series. That includes AVP. This to me looks like what they're doing to The Incredible Hulk.

This movie might be horrible by the time we see it, but its already a million times better than AVP and this was just the trailer!

    Overpowered Predators

    by photoboy

    Apparently there's only one Predator in the whole film, which judging by the trailer means the Aliens are going to be rather unfairly treated as basic cannon fodder. I'd prefer they were given more credit than just being slobbering monsters like they were in Resurrection and AVP1. I think the discovery in Aliens that they knew how to cut the power and find hidden routes into the complex was just as important as finding out about the queen as it shows they aren't just stupid creatures.<br><br> Having a lone Predator killing loads of Aliens left and right will just make them less scary and dangerous in my eyes.<br><br> Still, it's nice to see Reiko Aylesworth again. She's a much better Ripley substitute that Sanaa Latham.

    thank you, thank you, thank you. The more I think about AVP, the more I'm in love with Alien 3 and Ressurrection... never had any issues with Predator 2, I love that movie, only not as much as the first one. I hope this piece of shit bombs at box office, so maybe in like 5-10 years from now we might get something (CUARON for The Hobbit '11) worthy out of those classic sci-fi mythos. No reboot crap, a true sequel (in fact, I'd outlined a story for Predator 3, if this talkback goes on a little bit more I might post some of it.)

    You mean that AvP was so bad that it makes Predator 2 look good, or...nah, that must have been what you meant. I just watched Predator 2 again recently and the cornyness it was OK. Here's to hoping that AvsP2 does both series some justice. By the way I just read the latest book with the Ripley, Call, Johnner ARC and it was decent. I think it would make a great springboard for the next feature in the Alien franchise.

She looks just like a regular human being, except that she can become invisible and see people body heat. After finding out one of her completely human-like friends is being controlled by an alien (who once got into him but never got out, having taking control of his mind) Amy decides the only way to find out who's the host is to reading people body heat during her college dancing contest.

    The worst thing about AVP was the female lead was basically just a Ripley rip-off (or ripley-off lolz!1!!...). I've got a bad feeling they're going to do the same with this one. If they're going to rip someone off from the franchise why not Dutch? Can we no longer have male heroes in films?

    Ok So Ripley was a 'strong woman' but she's done with now so so any alien related movie 'have' to have a ripped woman taking charge and kicking ass???? I'm all for strong women in movies but as soon as it starts to feel like it ''''''has'''''' to be that then it's frikkin annoying to be locked into such a mind set.

    This might be a good film

    by Hardboiled Wonderland

    I'm just annoyed at the utter lack of effort made by the writers to develop new character archetypes. Instead, they've rehashed the Ripley & Newt relationship. The reluctant heroine who's already fought in a war but is forced to fight one more time -- geezus, we haven't seen that before have we? It wouldn't surprise me if Mini-Ripley has a one liner like, "Get away from her you bitch". Hey, can you call a Predator "bitch"? Or would it sound better if Arnie called a Predator "bitch"?

    by JackPumpkinhead

    Steve Perry's excellent ALIEN novels? Heh, heh... Seriously, though, if you can find Perry's shit, burn it without touching it. I vaguely remember suffering through them at age 14 or so and thinking how horrible and badly written they were. They had the "Aliens on Earth" part, too - and they made Anderson look like Scott.

    by Jack Burton

    I didn't hate AVP as much as I thought I would once I finally caught it on cable. Mot a great movie, but it was better then Alien: Resurrection. This one looks to be more of a return to form. Of course Fox will step in and neuter it but at least it looks like the unrated DVD will be worth getting this time.

    Look What They've Done to My Aliens, Mom!

    by Spykid the 13th

    No matter what anyone tells me, I will continue to believe that ALIEN 3 was not only the nail in the coffin for the ALIEN "franchise," but also the coffin itself. I know many people are attracted to its "artsy" pretentions (whether you believe it achieved them or not is pretty irrelelvant to me). However, I remember vividly going to a theater and seeing a preview for ALIEN 3 on two different occasions, and the experience went a bit like this. Thej first preview was a little teaser that the studio did, featuring an astronaut inside a space suit, and when you got close enough to see the astronaunt you found out that it was a skeleton. The ad copy had a man's voice speaking and it said something to the effect of this: "THEY SAY IN SPACE - NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM. BUT THIS THANKSGIVING - YOU WILL DISCOVER - THAT ON PLANET EARTH - EVERYONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM!" The promise was obvious: Aliens on Earth. Just that teaser got the audience I was in whooping and hollering in utter joy. We all knew what it was going to be, after we'd seen ALIENS. It was going to be an incredible war story featuring hundreds of aliens fighting the US Military in a movie we all knew in our hearts would look like the future scenes at the opening of T2, and we all knew in our naivite that it would look like that opening scene for the entire two hour running time, with nonstop plasma rifles in the 40watt range. Then, cut to a while later, and I'm in a different theater seeing the first preview of the actual ALIEN 3 that proved the lie to those promises. After long moments of stunned silence in the theater as the plot unraveled, Ripley uttered what was to me to prove the REAL immortal Ripley line: "You mean we have no weapons of any kind?" Cue groans, cursing and the general sound of an entire audience's balls being crushed simultaneously by the hand of Hollywood. If you had any doubt after that about the pussification of Hollywood - if the MPAA's fear of things happening in the eighth FRIDAY THE 13TH that it let have a pass for the first FRIDAY THE 13TH - then you had to cast aside all doubt and accept it. "GET AWAY FROM HER, YOU BITCH!" has, in fact, been replaced by "YOU MEAN WE HAVE NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND?" And that, to me, sums up the whole mess much more simply than any other complaints or expressions could ever state. We have never gone back from that precipice. We fell over it a long time ago.

  • Aug. 25, 2007, 12:16 p.m. CST


    by theyreflockingthisway

    The only reason a female lead is a problem is because they all want to be the next Ripley. It shows a lack of character creativity. Sigourney Weaver's character isn't in these films so they try to recreate her with someone else. With it being within the same universe, do we really need to follow three similar characters? <br><br> Ripley herself is a great character but we don't need to see her over and over again every time there's a female lead. Ripley didn't become tough and incharge until the end of Aliens - she was made like that over the course of the films. Directors seem to be just taking that part of the character without the reason behind it. Now they just see some aliens and automatically know their danger and how to combat them without earning that knowledge. <br><br> Granted that might not be the case with this film, it is just specualtion, but with many other science fiction and horror films taking from the Ripley character rather than making something their own, it just makes the films very predictable and dull. By all means have a female lead, just don't expect us to look shocked at the end when she's the only survivor.

    by master bitchfist

    I know I am in the minority of loving Alien Resurrection, and Alien 3 for that matter. But I love being in that world of loving them. I think that Resurrection was a movie with such a european style of doing things, that when it was released, it was hard for most american fans to understand the decisions in it. But if you look at Jeunet's films, it fits in perfectly. Just as Alien fits in perfectly along the course of Scott's history, Aliens in the course of Cameron's history, and yes, even Alien 3 as the great starting point in film for Mr. Finch. I hope that David Finch can one day understand the film he made, and quit hating it, or at least refusing to talk about it. Because so much of his style and talent shines through. And though there were lots of problems, I still feel its a masterpiece. Anyways, I understand how many of you could HATE Resurrection. I just happen to be a huge fan of all 4 directors of the original Alien films. And thos Resurrection is not my favorite, its director, Jeunet, is my favorite.

    by Joey_Redballs

    I was SO disappointed with Aliens vs Predator 1, that I can already tell from the trailer this one isn't nearly as disappointing. It's like going to see Batman Begins. It sucks compared to the first Batman movie (Katie Holmes is terrible and the musical score was lame), but nobody was comparing Batman Begins to the first 1989 Batman flick...they were comparing it to Batman & Robin. Much like that situation, most people will compare AVP 2 to AVP 1, so it will get good reviews. I can't remember if I was initially more disappointed with Alien Ressurection or AVP 1. It seems any franchise sequel with Resurrection in the title is a series killer...ala Halloween Resurrection. I wonder when they will be remaking Alien. There is already talks about remaking Predator with (gulp)...John Cena filling in for Arnold as "Dutch". God help us all. Come to think of it, a lot of critics were giving decent reviews to AVP 1 because they were comparing it to the ridiculous Alien Ressurection. TO BE FAIR: ALL SEQUELS AND REMAKES SHOULD BE COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL...(or at least the last good sequel like Aliens).

    I think the majority of people did compare BB begins to Burton's take(s) and the consensus was that Begins was an overall better film, i.e. structure of the story, character development and the overall "realism" it strived for. Just look at Ebert's take on it. Honestly, most people have selective memory when it comes to Batman & Robin, I know I barely register it into my film knowledge, and I saw it opening night when I was like 12, first Batman movie I got to see on the BIGSCREEN...

    by liljuniorbrown

    It just does, sorry. I'm not a fan of the Alien films, Aliens was good but thats about it. The Predator franchise could've been awesome and this trailer shows shades of greatness but it's just hard to tell. I can understand the hate but I gotta ask, who really belives that Batman1989 is better than Batman Begins? Seriously...the fucking Prince music every ten seconds? I'd rather have seen Katie Holmes in ten more scenes of BB then to have to hear one more fucking "Bat dance" while the Joker and his gang danced around Gotham. I liked that movie when there was no other option,but less face it Batman Begins and from the looks at it so far,Dark Knight are the definitive Batman on film. As far as Aliens and Star Trek franchises go, I just couldn't care less. Good luck to the fans of those properties (Aliens) you deserve a good film.

    Oh! Like we're shocked every time the "Male Lead" is the lone survivor in every other generic action flick. Why hold this franchise to a different standard than any other garden variety action genre flick? Your rationale reeks of clueless sexism. The script model for this and any other action flick follows the same plot devise - Someone takes the lead and becomes the hero...In the case of the AvP first movie it's a woman. You see a woman with a gun barking an order in this hodgepodge trailer and you assume it's going to be a female "Saving the Day" movie. - So what! Just use a little creative visualization and pretend that it's Arny with tits and a vagina and go with the flow if having an alpha-female offends your sense of the status quo.

    Predator's Revenge

    by Fenrisulfr

    At least it seems to be the first Predator film in ages that does justice to the hunter race. In AVP, they got their ass kicked (the first two ones bit the dust in about 4 minutes after the first encounter with the same xenomorph, and the so-called badass one got mouthfucked by an alien spider before falling in front of the Queen). Here on the other side we have a badass Predator that takes on multiple Aliens (loved how he holds them in the tunnel, one with each arm), some spectacular deaths (many alien tongue headbursting, the chick pinned to the wall with that giant Predator shuriken, the two loserheads exploded with the plasma cannon) and the deliciously skinned corpses are back in the trees. I could never swallow the original AVP, but this one will hopefully give me the gory fun I expected from the first one. Sure, I don't believe one second it'll be a good film, the human characters actually feel as blank and boring as in the first AVP, with the 24 chick playing some kind of (sexier) Ripley. AVP: REVENGE OF THE PREDATOR is coming and I'll most certainly check it out.

    The first two alien films were great because they weren't just about guns, gore and explosions. The reason we get all these crappy sequels is because of the people who happily ate a McDonald's when they should have been getting a gourmet meal.

    Alien Frustration – Actual Imagination

    by timberwolf4545

    The toughest part for me about these films taking such a conventional direction is that I have written a treatment for a sequel to Resurrection. That movie just ended on such a bizarre note that I felt I needed to get my thoughts down about it and it turned in to a full treatment. I have a long commute by train and a lot of time on my hands. I dealt with the madness that spread through humanity after Ellen Ripley destroyed earth in order to “protect” us from the Aliens. It had space marines, an unconventional story, a trip to the Weyland-Yutani factory world, a Xenusuit and nukes. God it gives me a boner thinking about it. Now, that’s it’s finished, I wonder what to do with it? Does this new series preclude new films post-Resurrection? Anyway, any suggestions of what I should do with this? Anyone want to hear more about it? Now, I leave it to you guys to call me a fanboy retard.

    I'd say the Predator franchise is in bigger trouble. Predator 1 is still the only good one in that series, and it's not as good as Robocop 1. And at least Robocop had that four part miniseries which was actually okay while Predator had Gary Busy, then Paul WS Anderson, then this. I'd rather see Jean Claude Van Damme starring in Alien 5 than another Alien vs Predator movie with bad storytelling.

    It does look better than the"original"...

    by Tourist

    ...But it still looks like a pile of shit compared to the real films in the series. Rewatch Alien, Aliens, Predator, shit even the lesser sequals, then come back and watch this lame looking slasher with monsters crap. Gore is cool though. I like gore. I'll watch something super gory in the cinema, just cause. But I'm the kind of person who really does enjoy Albert Pyun movies or Sci Fi channel originals. Which is what this looks like. Maybe, just maybe, it might be almost as good as Critters. Which would be fun, although the presence of the Aliens and Predators would be a constant reminder that a good film could have been made instead.

    by theyreflockingthisway

    What's it got to do with sexism? I love the Ripley character and the Alien films - infact I'd also say Vasquez is another awesome female character of the series. I have no problem with tough women in action films - why would I? Especially when the Alien series is one of my favourites. <br><br> It just comes down ripping off characters from what is technically the same series. Aliens and its characters (both male and female) have been ripped off (arguably) more than any other sci fi - so why should the very same series do it to itself? It did it in the last AVP film and look how that turned out.

    by Redsyrup

    This film doesn't make any sense, it's like taking the creature from the black lagoon and putting him in Iraq and expecting that plot setting to make sense. Predator is a jungle monster/heat chreature and the Alien is a sci-fi creature. This setup makes no sense what so ever. An Alien lurking in a Texas Barn or in some hick town is a moronic idea. This Vs. match up is for video games, FOX if your listening, you need to resegregate these franchises and continue their stories. What we're looking at is Freddy vs. Jason 2. Who gives a fuck.

    by Forsakyn

    They are - seriously. They basically hunt civilizations that have seriously inferior technology. The equivalent for us would be to find some tribe that uses bows and arrows, and we wear camo and snipe them from a thousand meters away. They cloak, which means if they're remotely intelligent they can kill anything (why not leave it on?). They have an auto-aiming shoulder cannon (noobs!). Sometimes they'll kill with their fancy killer fishnets and spears, but for the most part they just hide and ambush. And they'll waste folks that aren't even armed! Like that chick running down the hallway - he threw his Krull glaive and pinned her to the wall. What a man! I'm sorry if there are any real Predators reading this, but you are truly pussies. Now you Aliens out there - you have my respect! You earn your kills without any technology - just good ol' claws, jaws, tail spike, and an occasional acid spit! Gotta love those Aliens.

    by Bob_Guy

    From the trailer, this film seems to take place immediately following the other AVP movie. That one ended with the "PredAlien" bursting from the dead Predator's chest. I'm guessing the fireball was the Predator ship (which apparently the PredAlien was responsible for crashing). The face-huggers escaped from the wrecked ship, and the Predators still had a few tags left on their hunting licenses.... Blast away....

Or for most of you, just go back to the special on the disc to see how the "alien" did its thing. Massacres, fillets, and skewers thru the head where right out off the menu. THEY COLLECTED and brought the LIVING bodies back to the nest for infestation. alien three to now simply ignored that little important bit of the lore. John Rambo seen on that kickass trailer was quite canon to its show. This one was just yet another sad joke for it's franchise. Finally, whoever thinks this as a "popcorn" flick needs to be schooled on being a little bit more civilized.

    Some Redemption

    by Cobbio

    Regardless of how "good" this film turns out to be, I'm just happy there's blood, carnage, mayhem, squirting blood and innards leading to more mayhem, aliens duking it out with predators R-rated style, and spaceships. Even people saying "fuck" is refreshing. I have no idea if this will be a compelling, rip-roaring movie, but at least the new directors (the brothers Strause) didn't puss out. I'll give them that.<p> Paul "Weak Sauce" Anderson's cinematic atrocity nearly ruined both franchises simultaneously in an amazing feat of ineptitude. A PG-13 "Aliens vs. Predator"? My fucking ass. A completely un-fleshed-out origin story portraying ancient Earth living under Predator rule? Fuck you, Weak Sauce. My God, even writing about this now is making me want to punch that shithead in the face. The film he cooked up was beyond bad. It was insulting to both Ridley Scott and James Cameron (he should've just spit in their faces if he felt that way), and his conceited "I'm SOOO cool!" attitude only threw gas on his shit-smelling fire.<p> Even if "AVP 2" doesn't turn out to be a strong film, I'm still glad as hell it's at least R-rated. The brothers Strause at least got this right. Unlike their pathetic fuckwad of a directorial predecessor.<p> I'll go see "AVP 2".

  • Aug. 25, 2007, 11:10 p.m. CST


    by glodene

    How is the female lead in AvP a rip-off of the female characters in Alien? By your rationale, she's guilty by gender. She wasn't exactly a warrior in the same vein as Vasquez and nor was she damaged/traumatized like Ripley...She was just a glorified Mountain Climber/Facilitator who allign herself with a Predator to stay alive. (Nothing heroic there). I think (subconsciously) you've grown accustomed to the whole "Big Bwanna" action model that has been the main staple in the action genre since the days of Douglas Fairbanks, Sr.; John Wayne,Clark Gable, etc. The times are a changin' so I don't have a problem if this particular franchise decides to flip the status quo upside down. It's no different than all the Shwartzenegger, Stallone, Willis & Eastwoods (who all, lets' be honest, plays a not so different character variation of the same lone rebel iconic alpha male in all of their action fare). So before you take this particular franchise to task, howabout taking a step back and ask yourself what's your real beef?

    by Hardboiled Wonderland

    This actually reminds me a lot of Stallone's Rambo trailer he was promoting a few months ago. I'm not impressed, blood and gore and lots of violence does not make a good alien film. Scott and Cameron proved that with the first two alien films. The original predator had the campiness of Arnie. AvP2 has no character/s at all.

    by holden_oz

    I mean, I get that it's not just the great action in the Alien and Predator films, it's the awesome stories, characters and general mood of the things. This film might not have the same dark mood, (hard to tell from just a trailer) but at least it's well directed. In AVP you couldn't tell what the hell was going on when it came to the fights, all shot in close ups and cutting every half second. It got to the point where you couldn't even tell who won the fight until you get the wide shot at the end where the winner stood triumphant. Already this trailer shows some kick ass action beats that you can actually see. Wider shots of all sorts of cool shit. Sure, the story may suck, but at least we'll be able to enjoy it purely as a spectacle. (Isn't that what Transformers was about? Awful script but pure spectacle?) Will we talk about the fantastic cinematography? Or the intricate plot? Probably not. But I sure as hell will enjoy the hell out of this with a few mates on a Saturday night. I say Well done Strause Brothers for recouping some of the dignity lost after AVP. I hope this is the first of many.

    Yo. Read glodene's response after your post and you will see what many geeks _think_ they want out of an AVP movie. "Dude, it's gotta have balls-to-the-wall action and carnage, fuck any underlying meanings." (paraphrased, cursing inferred) Thing is, I just left a movie that thinks it's all those things, and on the surface, it appears to be. I'm talking about "War", the Jet Li/Jason Statham flick. That movie was such a illogical, nonsensical time waster that I actually got angry with myself halfway through for having spent the money. But you couldn't deny that it was, objectively, a balls-to-the-wall, non-stop action and carnage "thrill ride", certainly devoid of any allegories or hidden meanings.

    This film is not for me. The original alien film was as much about the future world setting as it was about the alien. AVP 2 looks like just another straight to video style slasher with Freddy/Jason replaced with Alien/Predator. No originality at all. Lazy film making. Wrong approach. The alien looks like the Stan Winston version of the design. Much as I love the Winston Studios work, that design was the weakest. With all the great Alamgamated Dynamics/Geiger designs to draw from, they went for the Cameron/Winston one. Wrong approach. This will be the first Alien film I won't bother to go to the cinema to see. I'll wait for the DVD so I can fast foreward as I'll no doubt be compelled to do.

My only worry is that the trailer attains such coolness that I get the sneaking feeling that everything cool in the film and the kitchen sink have been thrown in (though part of me holds on to the hope that some of it is composed of out-takes from the film, which is not that unusual for trailers). This one looks like the real deal. Finally a predator as he should be, a ruthless, supreme hunter fighting against incredible odds.

    by Fenrisulfr

    Between PG-13 crap and R-rated crap, I pick the second one :-S I know it'll be bad. But hopefully it'll also be fun and everything I wanted the first AVP to be: loads of gore, graphic and spectacular deaths, Aliens popping out of windows to drill the heads of civilians, a badass Predator kicking the acid out of the xenomorphs, skinned bodies up the trees...

  • Aug. 26, 2007, 1:26 p.m. CST

    OMG THIS LOOKS SO BADASS w00t! and etc.

    by 'Cholera's Ghost

    Here's how I feel. First of all, I'm not quite sure from the trailer, but if Fox actually took out the Alien versus Predator in the Super Home Depot, then there is cause for joy. It's just sad--SAD!!!--that we have come, at last to this: Praying for not having a K-mart be the smackdown arena of an AvP movie. O how the mighty have fallen. Now, there were definitely cool R-rated scenes in that trailer. The problem is that when it comes to films that have lots of potential, I am so fucking done with violence with no narrative. For example, we have the alien getting shot in the head and bleeding acid out all on the guy's face its got pinned down. That's awesome. Now make the scene more intenserized by actually giving some character to the guy getting his face eaten. It cranks up the "Ohhhhhh Daaaaaamn" factor when you actually care. However, I'm doubtful they put effort into the characters and story here. I want to be more optimistic but I've been twice bitten with Alien:Rez and AvP [vomits] and I don't see any possibility of that olde tyme magic these films used to have when it's focused on a small town on Earth in Present Day populated by the cast of 90210. P.S. Nice to see scenes of invisible Predator pwning people though.

    In defense of the Predator from Forsakyn's analysis

    by 'Cholera's Ghost

    Sure, predators use fancy-shmancy technology to hunt down technologically inferior prey, but come on--even with near-invisibility and shoulder cannons, you have to admit it's pretty tough to hunt down gangs of armed humans when you're alone even with stealth and fancy weapons being all you have--we're actually pretty smart and vicious creatures, and the predator constantly had to outwit and outfight its prey in the movies to stay alive. Besides, sport hunting the warrior class of other intelligent races for sport is pretty sadistic, regardless of how fair they make the playing field. Also, ambush and camouflage is a time-honored killing tactic most of the best movie action heroes make use of when facing great numerical odds. They use the shoulder cannon for surgical, run-of-the-mill kills like human hunters using sniper rifles, but it's not like they skimp on the hand-to-hand combat to the death action they usually save for the "trophy-est" human warriors. It would be like you sniping primitive hunter-gatherers, and then going in to take them on ten at a time with a spear, and trying to lure their war chief into a mano e mano. For comparison I'd like to see a human hunter try to even take on a deer with just a pair of knives. Have you ever played the AvP games? Sure, being a predator gave you great advantages but trying to be stealthy and kill organized or numerically superior prey was still challenging. And for the record, it wasn't exactly a cakewalk for Arnie to "pwn" the Predator in P1. Even after becoming invisible he tried in vain to kill the predator for like, a whole quarter of the movie's running time, eventually getting sadistically messed around with and beaten to within an inch of his life and only managing to kill his hunter after it found his first trap and Arnie had to go to the backup Giant Log Plan. At this point, a mortally wounded predator, having had two tons of falling mass crush his body, finds the balls to calmly start the nuke timer and laugh in the face of his adversary. This doesn't even mention the fact that they challenge themselves by going hand-to-hand with aliens.

    No! No! No!

    by EliteStance

    I'll be skipping this for the same reason I skipped AVP... Alien = Masterpiece & Aliens = Classic Predator = Great Movie & Predator 2 = Not bad attempt to follow up I have no interest in seeing what originally was a high mark of cinema grafted to what was essentially a great B movie to satisfy those who think 'that's cool!' I'll stick with 'structural perfection' on DVD for now and hope against hope that Fox actually take up reigns of each franchise in an admirable manner... although why bother taking the artistic road to financial success when you can take the low road to medium payback and terrible reviews... BTW I'm not dissing Predator (it's a favourite movie) but it's not in the same class as Alien / Aliens cinematically and it pains me to see the complete distortion of both franchises to make a fast buck - i.e. the cheap 'alternative universe' option of setting AVP and AVP2 on Earth in present day with no regard for continuity of Alien. Out of curiosity I checked out old AVP2 game a friend has and even that seemed better than this... it's at least set in space in roughly same timeframe as Alien / Aliens and from what I saw seemed to try and honestly honour both franchises.

    AVP2=Jaws: The Revenge

    by uss cygnus

    Come on, people. Really? 6 billion billion planets in the universe, and somehow they keep coming to ours? I mean, the US Military in full asskicking mode with tanks, aircraft and artillery and whatnot would wipe out both these species without too much bother. The reason all the other alien/predator flicks were effective was because you were dealing with small, untrained, outmanned, outgunned bands of people thrown into impossible situations with nowhere to run or hide. This looks completely different, and patently absurd, I'm sorry.

  • Aug. 26, 2007, 4:06 p.m. CST


    by uss cygnus

    Both species have always been vunerable. Tough to kill, granted, but vunerable. They have never shown any type of invunerability to heavy firepower. Are the aliens still ridiculously intelligent like "Alien: Resurrection"? That whole movie (And Alien3) should never have been made. Okay, venting over.

    Why is that the aliens vs predator 2 the game is the only thing is the avp series that has been good. neither creatures were butchered it has an excellent story as far as I can tell no timeline errors so why cant the movies do the same thing. heck avp2 storyline has been better than alien3,alien ressurection,pred 2 on its own. maybe its because actual fans of both series are writeing it. Though it may not have pretty graphics now the marine campaign has been the first thing in either series since alien to actually being scary. I will go to avp2 the movie to show that I want a avp movie (if I dont go fox assumes I dont want one) but you bet Ill tell them everything that bothers me.

    Uh the John McClain character was ripped off, or did you forget The Last Boyscout; Striking Distance & 16 Blocks (to a certain degree). Btw, you still didn't explain the similarities (other than gender) that the female lead in AvP shared with Ripley...And in what instances was the characters in Aliens ever ripped-off? In all honesty Aliens (charater-wise) wasn't exactly a study in character development (with the exception of Ripley), lets' be honest here, other than Paul Reiser's smarmy company rep, the marine characters (Vasquez included) were nothing more than your garden variety jarheads who (plot-wise) was there to make the battle with the aliens exciting, thus not making it a repeat of the cat n' mouse chase like its'(Ridley Scott's directed) predecessor.

    Time for a reboot.

    by jerseycajun

    for Aliens, in my opinion. Get back to basics. Make a prequel set in the future or something. Give a better explanation for how the company knew of the existence of the Aliens and their locations before they rerouted the Nostromo to check it out. Get a quality, capable cast, effects crew, a screenwriter and director with the ability to craft a worthy story, maybe give us just enough character development to make us care the way we cared about Ripley when we saw the first two. Am I the only one who thinks this?

I unfortunately clicked on the ign link and watched the high-res version of the trailer, which makes it clear that what is on screen is an absolute execrable mess. When seen in high-res detail, this thing looks like a bunch of guys in rubber suits rented from The Party Store running around shitty, over-lit sets. Not to mention the SHITTY, CHEAP LOOKING DIGITAL GORE. Oh, and the fact that a bunch of the action takes place in a fucking K-Mart! Total crap.

    "AVP = One Of The Worst Movies Of All Time"

    by Shermdawg

    lol, only on AICN would you see a overblown assessment such as that. Out of the millions of films made, AVP is one of the "worst"???<br><br> Honestly, I can look past the lack of gore, the badly shot action scenes, and the Bishop appearance. The only thing that ticked me off about the first one as the extremely short timeframe for the xenomorphs growth. Other than that, it wasn't s bad as you guys make it out to be. It wasn't X3. (And ven that had it's moments despite raping the franchise.) It didn't fuck over Ripley (that already happened in her own flicks). It was an average, yet occasionally fun popcorn flick. <br><br> It's OBVIOUS we aren't getting a Scott/Cameron helmed Alien 5, we aren't gonna get a Predator 3 (with those Cena rumors, thank god for that). Because we are so used to these creatures, no matter how hard they try, there will never be a real feeling of terror in any future films. Without Weaver, there goes the mythology. And as long as thman is around at Fox, this is all we're getting. We're lucky we're even getting this. And it could be worse. It could be the Halloween franchise.<br><br> I absolutely hate it when people tell others here to "get over it", but in this case, we're gonna have to, and accept that the Alien franchise died back in '92. Unless Fox get's a new studio head and they reboot the property, we'll never get another "good" installment.

    by The Dum Guy

    He supposedly went into it thinking it would be rated R, but the same goes for Resident Evil. And, I heard that the orginal outline for the story said that the incubation period for the Xenomorphs were purposely changed by the Predators using bio-engineering, so that they could hunt them without waiting. Sorta like microwaving your' pre-made dinners for 8 minutes instead of throwing them in the oven for almost an hour.

    Mel Gibson for the director of AvP3!!!! NO HUMANS, PERIOD! Just a simple story that follows the Predators as they setup a hunt, in which the prey just so happen to be Aliens, on some weird unknown planet. And the story should be set in the future, but I suppose it wouldn't matter since Earth or humans wouldn't be involved to reflect any time period anyway. Make this like Grindhouse, and have a double feature of Aliens vs Predator 3, and Nick Nolte vs Gary Busey!!!

    not just because the quality was bad but because it did more than even Alien Ressurection to piss on the good reputation of these franchises. Even Predator 2 didn't deserve the ass-raping that AVP gave it. Now this trailer does look promising, it will be rated R no? That's one thing it's already gotten right the first one didn't.

    by Spaced_and_Confused

    Funny enough my PC kept buffering the video at every clinch kill scene and froze. It looks to me at least that the much missed gore factor from the last AVP is here by the truckload. And unless Danny Glover or Arnold step in, I could care less about the human characters. I think I saw a clip of every human character they showed getting staked against a wall, or exploded, or (my favorite) having acid melt through their fucking face. This might actually be gorier than any of the films for both franchises that came before it, I know that's a bold statement, but hell look at the trailer, it's there.

As for AVP2, even if it totally kicks ass, aliens on present day earth kinda sucks for tossing continuity and it's gonna be hard to live down the horrible shite of AVP1 (probably not possible).

    somewhat makes sense

    by rxse7en

    I guess, taken with a grain of salt, we can assume that the AvsP genre does segue into the Alien universe. The fact that the Nostromo was sent to LV-426 to recover the alien artifacts means that W-Y knew they existed. Perhaps we find that W-Y gets it's hands on all of the Pred-tech and advances mankind into space--always wary of the existence of the Aliens and Preds. Predator was contemporary and somewhat fits in. Maybe we'll see the next AvsP or Alien flick being the one that introduces us to colonization and the colonial marines.

    I want to be in The World Begins

    by TheNorthlander

    A universe disenfranchised from Paul WS Anderson, a whole new take on earth if you will. You gotta love it though how before AVP fanboys screamed for years how much they wanted an Alien vs Predator movie, and now that they made (a really bad) one, everyone just want things to go back to the way they were before with two separate series'. Maybe they should have done like with JLA and just make a CGI AVP instead.

    This could be old news, but you can flip the photos over. There is writing on the other side of some of them.

    If that is indeed how you spell it. Sorry for joining the party so late. No one is problably going to look at this now but I did wonder why in the orignal Alien films the the gestation period of the alien once it's in John Hurt is at least a few days yet in AVP it's like an hour.

    America. Fuck Yeah.

    by Batou

    I like to say fuck yeah. What was the main gripes people had with AvP: - Off Camera kills - Stupid unrealistic overcomplicated setting - Stupid relationship storyline Well, obviously, looking at the trailer: - On camera kills. The the Nth power - Realistic setting. Something that could exist, not some idiotic pyramic 3000 feet underground. - Can't comment on the stupid relationship storyline, but doesn't look likely. Fuck yeah. How the hell did Paul WS Anderson go from Event Horizon to this? Did someone else do Event Horizon, he just lifted it?

    Seriously guys some of you are the most cynical, whining pussies i have ever seen on a board, we have all been let down by trailers that promised the earth and delivered shit, i hated the first AVP but this trailers looks awesome, i can't wait to see it, and will only be put off if every review says its shit, otherwise I will hold judgement

    Only one thing can save ALIENS VS PREDATOR now...

    by spud mcspud

    Cast Henry Rollins as the last living human. Then the Aliens and Preds move in and BLAM! One interplanetary smackdown.<P> This don't look as bad as AVP, which is like saying a punch in the face is better than a kick in the balls.<P> Yes, Paul "Wall-to-wall Shit" Anderson did lift EVENT HORIZON - from a movie called SOLARIS. Not so much the Clooney version though. And then SUNSHINE lifted from EVENT HORIZON. RIP Originality in Hollywood.

    Nasty F'in Aliens...

    by johnwalanp

    ...killing shit! That was better than going ten rounds in the sack with Jessica Alba! Roll on Xmas for some hardcore Aliens v Predator action, like it should have been first time around!!! I heard there's even a scene in a school, with a load of kids getting killed - talk about R-rated!!!

    slasher movie

    by dopepope

    This looks like a teenage slasher movie, but instead of a masked killer it's aliens and predators. Looks like they've amped up the violence to pacify us from the fact there's very little substance. They've pissed all over the serious tone of the Alien films with these lame AvP outings, which had/have potential if they were handled well, but they obviously aren't. A v P vTeenage hicks and profanity! WOW!

    Inter-franchise continuity....

    by Cellar Door

    For these movies is at least 94.7% ass. The remaining 5.3% is pure fanboigasm.

    No Need To See The Movie

    by Saluki

    All the best kills were in the trailer. What the hell is WITH Fox this year? They showed all the kills in Sunshine before it came out too. The comparison to a Slasher flick was valid. This is just Jason X all over again you suckers.

    What? No WWE with Aliens?

    by BenjaminElial

    I dig the trailer but I'm afraid I just watched all the major characters bite it. If they were just secondaries that died in quick, spectacular ways and there's much more to be had, I'll be happy.

    by guvnagrover

    Trailer shows "some" promise. I'll wait until it comes out. Still, wtf is up with the "modern" day approach? Set it in the freakin future and bring on the colonial marines!!

    Trailer Death Rate ......................... One-On-One

    by Red Dawn Don

    Man that was a lot of death in a 2:12 length trailer. Anyone got a death count. It was mucho. The little boy hunting and getting an alien-facial was yucko.
