    Aliens vs. Predator: the movie

    Good news and bad news:

    Good News: The movie has finally been green lighted and will go into production this year.

    Bad News: It will be directed by Paul Anderson! :mad: :rolleyes: (The Soldier/Mortal Kombat/Resident Evil/EventHorizon)

    Why do they hire this guy to direct movies. He is terrible! One bad film is forgivable, two maybe? BUT FOUR?! All of his films, of which I suppose Event Horizon was the best, have been truely bad films.
    Why does Hollywood have to ruin every good idea ever? :rolleyes: :(

    Have to snarl in agreement Lex.:(
    At this rate it'll end up another of those dreaded 12 Cert's to pull in the max blockbuster audience. Cupid stunts that they are.

    As long as the DVD comes out in the correct aspect ratio in line with the director's vision even if the director is shortsighted :D

    Well I enjoyed Event Horizon and Mortal Kombat and look forward to watching Resident Evil so I can't wait for this movie. Could potentially be an awesome horror/action flick.

    Resident Evil was a huge disappointment, didn't even go near capturing the atmosphere of the video games. Nor did it take any advice from the Romero films that inspired the games. The only good thing was Milla Jovovick (sp?), she looked like someone I won't mind coating in garlic butter and putting between two slices of bread! :D

    event horizon is a cracking film, a first rate horror/sci-fi but i'll let you know what I think of resi evil on Thursday. Anderson is competent and turns out (on average) a reasonable product... even Mortal Kombat was ok (think how bad it could have been.... another street fighter: the movie):)

    Aliens vs Predator could be a lot worse.....they could have plumped for Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin.
    At least Paul Anderson has shown that he can direct blood'n'guts when he's allowed to. Resident Evil was originally given an NC17 cert by the MPAA and it was Sony/Columbia that insisted the film be cut for a wider audience. I've never played the games so I don't know what I'm supposed to expect from the film, but I like it in the same way I liked Tomb Raider - it entertained me - I'm not too sure what else I'm supposed to expect from a film. I had no expectations and got presented with some lightweight enjoyable nonsense.

    Soldier was complete throwaway garbage, but I did enjoy Event Horizon and I personally don't feel any need to be afraid of his involvement in an Alien vs Predator movie. Unless of course, he decides to cast his pal Sean Pertwee in a leading role somewhere.

    I haven't had chance yet but I want to go and see resident evil, not because its a fim of a game that I love, but because its got michelle rodriguez in it, she IMO is one of the best young actors around at the moment.

    Alien vs Predator will be wicked whoever directs it, as long as they don't make it a 12 and there is loads of fighting between the two races. What i don't get is how the aliens will be able to compete with the predators IMO they are so much harder than xeonomorphs.

    I agree - One bird with a flame thrower took care of the Aliens. Predators had better weapons than Arnie/Danny and are much better shots too - that shoulder-laser-job will fry the Aliens in secs. Maybe one of the Predators will have an Alien growing inside it and become a hybrid like the dog in Aliens 3?

    I think I read somewhere that predators prefer to fight hand to hand, not sure if I read it or if it was in a film or whether i dreamt it up in my head.

    So are there meant to be many Aliens and Predators or one of each or just the one Predator?

    I think it is meant to be loads of each. I don't know I haven't really read that much about it, I will do a little search on it now and post later.

    but as always the aliens will undoubtedly have an advantage when it comes to sheer numbers. You've never seen more than ten of the predators in the same place at one time but there were hundreds of the aliens in Aliens.

    Sure, but Danny Glover shot the Predator about 3 times with the shotgun in the abutoir, but he kept on going. One shot for the Alien and it is toast.

    Also just 10 Predators on Earth, but where is the new film gonna be set?

    What about all the different kinds of aliens, dog aliens, normal ones, face huggers, queens? Are all of these going to be incorperated into the film, if they are, the predators have got no chance, unless they use them shoullder lasers.

    from what I can remember from the comic book series, they were set all over the place... on different planets that sort of thing... and I don't care if you are a Predator... if five or six of the Aliens run at you you are in big trouble.

    Remember the Aliens act like insects a hive of them could contain millions of them.

    But they still smell. Poo!:D

    Aliens dont have eyes so not being able to not see a predator is not a problem. They don't show up under infra red so the predator is stuffed on that front too.

    mind you it would only take one predator running in with his mini-nuke self destruct arm band armed to wipe out all the aliens. Banzaiiiiiiiiiiii!

    I would like to see what defence the Predator has against the Alien acid blood if it decides to fight hand to hand. If a Predator decides to use its jagged wrist daggers to stab an Alien won't the Acid blood seriously wound the Predator, which would leave it venerable to other Alien attacks? I agree with Nobber22, the Ray gun on the shoulder would take out an Alien anywhere except at close range, alien acid blood would spill out everywhere. unless Predator weapons & armour are acid proof!

    There has got to be a big human element in the film somewhere, to keep up audience interest (plus they will no doubt want a big star attached to justify the budget). It is bound to be something like the games, i.e. all three species at the same place at the same time. Probably something like humans fighting Aliens, then in the middle of that fight a Predator turns up and all hell breaks loose.
    Heck, I like it already! :D

    right according to empire mag, the plot is loosely based on the second AvP PC game, in that its set at a scientific research facility where the humans are experimenting on both aliens and predators, needless to say something goes wrong and all hell breaks out.

    they also announced that a film of Return to Castle Wolfenstein is likely and a remake of Scanners is being discussed.
