Aliens vs Predator:
Starring: Reiko Aylesworth, Steven Pasquale, Shareeka Epps, John
Ortiz, Johnny Lewis, Kristen Hager
Director: Greg Strause, Colin Strause
U.S. Opening Date: 25 December 2007
In this follow-up to Alien vs. Predator, the
iconic monsters from two of the scariest film franchises ever, wage their
most brutal battle yet in an unsuspecting Colorado town, where
unsuspecting residents must band together for any chance of survival.
Yeah, the first Alien vs. Predator
was really really good, so they just had to make another one (note
sarcasm) . . .
A cast of unknowns, an obscure brother directors team
(the Brothers Krause) whose previous work consists of music videos and
special effects work for X3 and a Canadian shooting location. It’s
official: 20th Century Fox has given up on the
Alien and Predator franchises and no
longer consider it worth spending any serious money and/or talent on
either of them!
So forget about ever seeing Sigourney Weaver as Ripley
again or original movie director Ridley Scott directing another installment again. Alien vs. Predator
can be filed under the “they should
have released it straight to DVD, but instead they actually gave it a run in the
cinemas” category. Just like Fox did with Eragon . . .
Note: As if that ridiculous-looking Alien/human
hybrid towards the end of Alien Resurrection
wasn't bad enough, Aliens vs. Predator features a "predalien"
