I think it'll suck unfortunately. Still gonna see it, and still hope its completely awesome. Definately excited, but hard to get your hopes up for something with so many chances to be a letdown.

I think that its a shame that Paul Anderson was able to shape the lifespan of the alien. In the past legendary directors got their say in how the alien lived and died and this seems to take away from that a little. Never the less I liked Resident Evil and even Mortal Kombat so I will defo go see this one but not on opening week just so the numbers look worse because I've heard that if it does well Alien 5 will be on the way and who really wants that, just let it go into movie history.

Puts all $ down on Alien, if Danny Glover can kill a Preditor then they definately suck.

I wouldn't miss this flick for Shiva!

Got some teaser trailers from Fox, and the fights look awsome...

Love those Predators. Remember boys and girls, even Arnie had a tough time. And we all know Arnie cannot be killed. Ever

I'll def be going to see that one, and since some of you lot voted the original Alien vs Predator game as the scariest Im warming up with that.

In my opinion, The smartest thing 20th century fox could have done was to go after and try to get, and I mean really, really try, the only two directors that could do these kind of movies justice, that being either Ridley Scott or James Cameron. That said, I'm not casting any negative reflections on this movie until I have seen it, as I might be surprised. lol, who knows, I did like anderson's work with the resident evil movie as well as event horizon.

I think it may be a good let your brain think of something other than eve event, but not a great film. The whole people tunneling into the arctic to find a temple with 2 kinds of aliens fighting, and of course i'm assuming all but 1 or 2 of the people die of course. Would have been much better in a city where innocent bystanders and anyone who is naked and hot dies.

Although I am going to see it, I don't feel confident that it will be a success. I have seen the trailers and the look good, but they (Hollywood) more often than not show the best parts in the trailers.


*crosses fingers* Here's to hoping the movie is awesome!!Very Happy

My brother went to see it last night at midnight, and the verdict is: It's a fun movie IF you do not expect plot or good acting. The fighting between the two coolest sci-fi monsters of all time is supposed to be quite pimpy. I'm going to see it after I get off work. Honestly, this report is exactly what I expected. Don't expect Shakespear and you'll have a good time. Kinda like any Arnold movie. I will governate you!

Aye, what he said ^^

The same thing I thought of when I read about the movie. The only legacy they will have with Alien lore is Bishop, who in the movie will be the human who starts the company that later on builds androids (in Alien).

However, he must have suffered amnesia in AvP, since in Alien age nobody knows about Aliens. If I survived aliens and created a corporation later on, I'd put it in every god damn circuit: "... must ... kill ... aliens"

Please be a combination of "Aliens" and "Predator"!!!

Knowing my luck, it will be "Alien 3" and "Predator 2".

"However, he must have suffered amnesia in AvP, since in Alien age nobody knows about Aliens."

Not true.. Ridley Scott filmed footage (which was cut) that made it very clear that Weyland-Yutani created the alien lifeform. Unfortunately, no explanation was given as to how/why the "Space Jockey's" ship was infested with alien eggs.

The Alien series has always had continuity problems.. i'd expect no less with AVP.

It took 20th Century Fox 14 years to get the movie made and into theaters.. the film won't be "perfect".
It should be entertaining though.

If AVP makes over $200 million in the US.. expect AVP 2, Alien 5, and Predator 3 ..within 4 years.

hmm.. if they made it then how did the unknown aliens become infested (Alien 1)? And why do they keep trying to catch it alive (Alien 3) and use the whole colony as an experiment(Alien 2) when the aliens have been present among humans for several decades?

btw the script is the worst Hollywood stereotype but ill still watch it - predators in action are pricelessVery Happy

Actually, what I want is the Verhieden take on the aliens. They have a homeworld. Where they live there is a balance... everywhere else they are like fire ants... nothing can stop them. Predators HUNT small groups, but 1 face hugger, and the pred is down. 1 queen and earth is doomed. Aliens can't lose, they cant win, they just are, they may be "intellegent" but they arent that smart, they are barely sentient. They are smart communinal insects. I'd like to see earth VS a few predators and an alien infestation.

I went into the movie expecting very little in the way of a plot and I wasen't disappointed. The Alien/Predator fight scenes ruled, and it was all the poor humans could do to stay out of the way... Twisted Evil

The jockey race aren't human.

If they make Alien 5 it should be based on this book. Aliens infest earth, humans evacuate. We lose, for now.

The movie was good up till the pred made that stupid ***** some weapons... WTF.

Pred and her running down the hall like some dynamic duo.... what bull****. Then once they get out of the the place and are standing of the edge of the crater, maybe it was jsut me, but were they about to get thier nasty on with each other?

They should have killed the stupid women and let the pred go to town on the rest of the aleins.

I think we should have seen something bad coming once we found out the movie's rating. I mean, lets look at this:

Alien - R
Aliens - R
Alien 3 - R
Alien Resurrection - R
Predator - R
Predator 2 - R

Alien vs. Predator - PG-13

........

WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY MAKE IT PG-13!?

i read that the reason they changed the rating was because of the games.

Apparently they saw that many younger people played the Alien vrs. Predator games and so they made this movie with that age group in mind so that it would appeal to them more.

I still think that more humans should die, alien dismemberment and stuff ain't scary, but seeing a human torn apart by an alien while he screams for dear life, theres just something about it.

I know, hell, Robocop was almost NC-17 because of a 5 second scene where Murphy's arm was being shot off!

For a movie like AvP, there better be a scene where a Xenomorph and a Predator are playing tug-of-war with a human body and it rips to pieces!
