Teaser Scene Descriptions

I’ve noticed there’s some confusion of what’s actually happening in some of the scenes in the AvP teaser trailer so I’ve written an article on specific scenes.

Notice here that there’s seven bodies on platforms (and probably an eighth behind the camera) all placed in a circle around a symbol in the floor in the “Sacrificial Chamber”. I noticed that the two bodies nearest the left have (a facehugger?) wrapped around their head and the victims’ skulls look oddly shaped as well. At the end of each platform where a skeleton lays, there’s a circular placeholder (perhaps for an Egg?).

At the end of each platform where a skeleton lays, there’s a circular placeholder (perhaps for an Egg?).

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s what the symbol looks like and you’ll remember this looks a lot like the Queen Chestburster on the Alien 3 poster. This symbol was most likely crafted by the Predators.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

These two figures at the left and right look more like statues (of Predators?) because they are just seated. A lot of people have commented on the green ray of light shooting out of the tunnel ahead. Watching the scene back, it looks more like a ray of light from one of the archaeologist’s torches. I doubt it’s Predator-related. Here’s a comment from Joblo’s Set Report:

Large menacing statues of the predators are seen kneeling before a large staircase, spears in hand, at the far end of the chamber.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Look towards the end of the shaft and you’ll spot a shadowy figure moving about. Obviously looks more bulky so it’s more likely to be a Predator roaming about than a human being. As Savage pointed out in a comment below, there is also a shadow of someone hung from the ceiling right next to the predator shadow.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s the entrance to the central hive area and you can make out the Alien eggs covered in the blue lighting up ahead.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s, Miller, the chemical engineer who’s discovered one of the Alien eggs. What’s excellent about this shot is that the torch shines through the egg to reveal a moving Facehugger inside – a reference made to Alien.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

In this shot, a Predator is standing on the steps in the “Staircase Chamber” and you’ll also remember that the first production still for AvP was taken at the bottom of these steps. Eagle-eyed viewers will have also spotted the sculpture of a predator’s head in the wall at the top of the screenshot.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here we have a few of the archaeologists at the edge of the egg chamber (in a net or a cocoon?) with many Facehuggers emerging from their eggs. Also note the piece of human equipment in the bottom-left corner of the shot which means either one of them has been to this area before or there’s someone else behind the camera’s view or they all passed through this area before and the eggs have been laid since.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s the new predator mask revealed. This probably means that this is the “Lead” Predator and the mask gives it an important status since the other Predators seen in the teaser have normal masks.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

This is the point where the group gets separated from each other. The person behind the falling wall/door is the security team member, Adele Rousseau.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s Adele Rousseau in the blurred background watching as a facehugger slowly crawls out of an egg brilliantly created by the effects crew.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Another security team member is about to meet his maker, so to speak. In the blurred background, you can clearly see the Alien behind him but also note the yellow blood on its head. This Alien is obviously identified as the “Grid Alien” because previously, it was perhaps caught in a Predator’s net and escaped with the scarring on its head.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s three of the team members running towards the steps ahead. It looks as if the middle person is injured and is being helped to run by the other two people. I can’t tell who they are for sure but the one on the right looks like Lex and the one being helped to be carried could be Weyland.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Scene Added: I missed this scene first time around. Notice on the right, there’s a Predator standing behind her. This is the where Lex and the Predator team up together which has already been mentioned in set reports. Look at the expression on Lex’s face. Could she be shooting one of her own team members? My guess is that one of them is about to release a Chestburster and she shoots him.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s another Predator with a similar mask to the previous predator but the area around the eyes looks different to me. Could it be the same predator as before or a different one but the most noticeable thing is his wrist blades that extend. This Predator is commonly referred to as the “Chopper Predator”. Here’s a quote from John Bruno (S/FX):

“We have to make the blades there are bigger blades this time so we have to have them pop out in CG.”

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

This shot has returned to the “Staircase Chamber” with two people on the steps. One is either dead or unconscious and the other is standing over them unaware they are being watched by two aliens, a reference made to Alien Resurrection.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s Lex, Weyland and another security team member looking at (a Predator?). Lex is about to through a spear of some kind at it. When it flicks to a closer shot of Charles Weyland, you can make out a body in the netting (between Lex and Charles Weyland below), Could the net be from a Predator Netgun or is it man-made roping? Anyway when Lex throws the spear, in the next frame it looks as if the Predator catches it.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Here’s a Predator fighting with an Alien and the scratches on the predator’s mask has obviously been caused by an encounter with an Alien and this Predator is referred to as the “Scar Predator”.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

This screen has been debated to whether the figure jumping across the gap is a Predator or a team member. From first glance, it looks like a human but could he really jump that far to the other side? On another note, if you look at the frames slowly, you might see movement of someone following him – possibly a predator. Thanks to Rusty Nails for pointing this out.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

This is one of the final shots in the teaser trailer and shows an explosion at the whaling station. How the explosion was caused is unknown but here’s a quote from John Bruno:

“There’s this great shot with somewhat of an explosion near the end. So, basically in this chase sequence, there’s an explosion … but the Predator just stands there and looks at the explosion as it flies by him.”

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

This seems to be the most confusing shot for people and has been debated in many forums. Firstly, it shows something grabbing an alien. A lot of people thought that this was a PredAlien grabbing the alien but you can clearly see the armour on the Predator’s arm. The next confusing point is whether the Predator is grabbing an Alien Drone/Warrior or a Queen. It doesn’t look like a Drone because of the shape of the mouth and teeth and there’s no way a Predator could take down a Queen without any weaponry. He’d have a hard enough time with a standard alien which leads me to believe this is an advanced Warrior Alien.

 Teaser Scene Descriptions

Anyway, that’s my report. I maybe wrong on some of the points and I’m not sure about the locations such as the Staircase Chamber etc. These chambers were listed in Part 1 of JoBlo’s set report so I’m just guessing at which is which. Everybody’s going to have different theories on the teaser trailer and I’ve made a lot of presumptions based on the knowledge I know.

  1. Avp RULES!
    In the first movie it is stated that the aliens are the most perfect organism. they use facehuggin to adapt to any host specie and the space jockeys were dudes who made this perfect organism to use as a weapon but it was just TOO perfect so they died and the aliens lived.  So the aliens are living weapons the only thing that is seen constantly in the movies is their intellingence they are not stupid animals as most ppl think (predfans): the aliens cut the power in the movie aliens on purpose and they can learn quickly(alien ressurrection: alien pressing button) AND the fact that they learn shows that aliens can be individualistic too so a hand to hand vs a pred depends on how much then alien knows bout combat and how skilled the pred is, if hes a wussy then he'l definetly lose cuz unlike humans and predators who need training to be strong ALL aliens are born with some degree of power which is something many forget but anyway i think the fight is really hard to draw out its pretty even AVP RULES FOREVER!  :)  
  2. St
    it's all good whit all those story but what i wanna no is what is the male alien who is the match maker of the queen alien the alien in the 3  one i guess!
  3. Kiryu
      >:D  You guys argue to much about this subject you should just be excited that this is actually happening its not just a dream any more BE HAPPY!!!!!!!!!   :D  
  4. Kiryu
      ;D  I FINALLY SAW THE TRAILER!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS MOVIE IS GONNA ROCK!!!!!!!!!!! \m/ ^ - ^ \m/ i cant wait it is really fast and really hard to see until you slow it down and the scene at the end with the stare down with the alien and the pred sent chills down my spine i almost peed my pants!!!!!!   ???   I cant wait for dis movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. Darth Garuda
    What I mean is, if the jockeys are beings that grow from their ships how do they manage the xenomporphs?  REAL FANS believe anything, I'm a fan of the movies that's it, not all these rubbish comics that ruin and contradict everthing.  The games are fine, but are sourced mainly on the movies.  I don't believe everything Scott says because his story has changed throughout the years, he isn't even too sure what they are.  REAL FAN, ha!
  6. Aliminator
    For Dallas: you have a question:"WHY DO HUMANS USE BIOWEAPONS AND KILL THEMSELVES"  becasue...humans are ****king idiots! that's why there is nuclear missle, anthrax, napalm bomb, etc....  AND i believe aliens are VICIOUS animals,not biomechanical like the cyborgs in the movies.  AND maybe you heard it wrong.....AND DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEARD FROM DVD.   >:D  
  7. Aku
    IGN has a screen shot of the Staircase Chamber. Here the guy in grey is trying to fend off a predator with a pickaxe. I believe this part of the movie is in between the parts in the trailer where the 3 humans are running down the corridor and the shot where the guy in grey is lying on the chamber floor.
  8. Dallas
    hey Darth Gauda gimme a break!  i said that all of my words are exactly true because Ridley Scott said that on the DVDs. So why dont you believe it ?  you ask if the Aliens been used by the Jockeys as Weapon why did they killed this one?  do you have so little fantasie? WHY DO HUMANS USE BIOWEAPONS AND KILL THEMSELVES HUH?????????????????????  Aliens are Biomechanical, and thats it! You may believe it or not. Real Fans know the Truth about that stuff.
  9. Darth Garuda
    If the jockeys used xenomorphs why has that one been killed by one?  The aliens are animals!  They are not biomechanical, as we have seen their acid melts metal.  Giger's designs were for biomechanicals, but that doesn't work in the real world, especially as they chose acid for blood.  Giger's paintings didn't show acid.  I think Scott too may be confused as to what they are.  As I've seen in a doc, he said it was up to Giger to define the Alien.  Nobody really knew what they were, if they were male female or anything.  They've changed throughout all the movies.  I've also heard that the reason they are black is because they have a very short lifespan.  As they age they quickly darken as they are constantly bruised by the quick aging proccess.  That is why in the Dir. Cut we see that the xenomorph has the ability to turn corpses into eggs so that the species will survive.  That scene was legendary even before the Dir, Cut.
  10. Dallas
    to Darth Gouda: some of your statements are right but with that space jockey thing you are TOTALY WRONG. Ridley Scott himself says that the jockeys use the aliens as weapons. and aliens are NO ANIMALS as some of you think. they are, like the jockeys, a Biomechanical creature, a mix of organic and mechanic elements!!! do you have the complete alien DvDs? so you can check this out at the Audio commentaries. AND NOW TO THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT: if the space jockey ship from the first movie will turn into a predship in avp,  they
  11. Aliminator
    I LOVE AVP, SEPECIALY AVP2 , I PLAYED IT EVRYDAY. THIS REPORT IS AWESOME. CANT WAIT TILL AUGUST. PS. SOME COUNTER-STRIKE AND RAINBOWSPER PLAYERS THINK AVP2 IS FOR LOSERS. BUT THEY ARE THE IDIOTS   >:D  
  12. Darth Garuda
    This is a prequel to Alien and it does lead up to the events in Alien and the other movies.  Sure isn't Weyland and Yutauni in it?  Why else would the company send Nostromo to LV426 if they had a nest on Earth?  Ripley hasn't even left on the Nostromo yet in this movie.  I know, I've read.  If the Preds are testing their manhoods why are they wearing their masks?  It is only in the games that it says Aliens don't give of heat.  Which is stupid coz anything that moves causes friction = heat.  It was just to make the game more of a challege.  The creators of this movie have not though this out at all.   Plus they have a rubbish director in control, meaning this will be the final nail for both franchises, in the cinemas that is.  I hope they'll do a decent job, but I can't see it.    Aliens were not used by the space jockeys.    That space jockey was the only one on that ship, it grew from the chair.  It might turn out to be a Pred ship, if AVP wrecks things as I have predicted.  The Space Jockey was the pilot, was facehugged, he died giving birth to a Queen crashing the ship in the proccess, sending a warning beforehand.    She proceeded to lay eggs, that is where "Alien" comes in.    You may argue that it doesn't have Pred style, but the ship has be complete encased in secreation from the xenomorphs giving it the organic look.  Please be good, Aliens and Predator are too good to be ruined!
  13. Dallas
    i think that  most of the fans (even the alienfans) do still not know what the alien is all about. the alien in the first movie didnt explode outside the narcissus, it needs no air, and it doesnt burn by the driving fire of the ship. so, that is what ridley and giger created. the perfect organism. they are weapons used by the biomechanical space jockeys. in the second movie they went a little bit away from that. the aliens become a antlike character. in the third they go back with the strength of the creature because it can survive hot liquid metal. so it is variable from movie to movie, but the aliens are not weak. with the james cameron version, all that comics and of course avp-games, the aliens have lost to much of their power that giger and scott created. most of the fans  dont remember that. and by far the predfans.............
  14. Sahrah
    Ok you are right. but i cannot longer stand that foolish talking of the most of the predlovers that the aliens are  stupid, weak,gay and so on. i mean alien is the much bigger franchise.its the ultimate scifi-cult that have allowed the rising of the preds. if fox take this down by making a superpredwillsurviveanithingm ovie and the aliens are nothing more than stupid bugs iam off with that rubbish.
  15. Dutch
    look both the species rule they are both equally matched no matter wat.they have just evolved differently the aliens are far more hostile than the predators and only want 2 kill and spread and the aliens have technology aswell the have drop ships its in the first movie.
  16. -=[Daishi]=-
    Personally, I like them both. If preds are so weak and dependent on technology, why do they kill with only two knives on their arm, in order to keep honor. If you see predator1/2, they can take quite a bit of damage, the pred in predator2 took a beating from the shotgun and survived. While Aliens throw out their guts when cut. Dont get me wrong, aliens are powerful 2, but I think it would be an even match with pred and alien, hand 2 hand
  17. Mega-hellboy
      ???   man talk about going off topic and like all the comics the preds win the humans survive and aliens die. for the simple fact we know the aliens die because nobody see another one for 150 years. but the preds will probelry die to like in the original AvP and the director has a good chance of F**king up unfourtuantly like he did with Resi.  i mean what the f**k was that thing in the train at the end. but like everybody else hear im hopeing its good. but he would try adding something stupid like that evolved licker in resi .
  18. Richy
    Hey Hey every one just calm down. Now im an aliens fan to but to say that preds suck and aliens will win. I think thats a little over the top. come on guys if ripley can survive in four movies i dont think a preds going to have to much trouble. aliens are cool and everything and they have evolved but think of it this way. say the animals of today might have evolved right just like aliens to survive. there smart, great hunters and all. but humans will always be smarter because we can use our brains to do much more than just try to eat something. our weapons and technology make us what we are today. just like the predators evolve to become effective at what they do (HUNT). so please dont say preds are stupid because they have evolved in a different way then the aliens its survival of the fitest. if technology makes a species stupid then i guess you can through away you computer and tv never use eletric or the toilet. lol    ;)   do you see what im saying that sounds stupid doesn't it.
  19. ghgfjhfj
    listen aliens are the better race they have evolved and have adapted just like the predators and need weapons to fight its just like with the dinosaurs they survived longer then the human race will ever because they kept it simple and effective we on the other hand are stupid and think technology is the way when its the thing thats going to end us all we destroy the environment with it and ourselfs aliens are cooler
  20. michaelmorph
    oh this will never end. cmon folks, this bad words about the aliens and the preds....i think thats sick. fans should stick together, i like them both.  alien is a classic and the pred is a very cool character.  stay friends people!
  21. Sahrah
    my words,guys ..my words. Alien is the all time classic and this crossover with the pred is very sad. its taken down a cult. thats the same level like freddy vs jason. its bullshit.
  22. spider
    oh iam to nasty huh? or why is my post taken off? ok,let me say this: i dont like the preds because they are a rip off of the alienmovies and now they become some sort of superhero by their fans.  look at the alienstuff: four movies, 8 oscars (i think), millions of dollars in rentals. and what is it about the preds huh? not one oscar, part 2 was a flop. now the pred only goes one because they do this  stupid movie. they should do an alien 5!!!!!!!!!
  23. bob
    Use your mind ..... i always here that crab that the preds are the stronger ones. if somebody ask what is stronger a human ore an alien, you will say the alien. but if this human have a rifle, he have a good chance. and the same it is with the preds. with their weapons they have a good chance to win. but if the aliens get to close, the preds are breakable as the humanrace baby! so, the aliens ARE a weapon.
  24. FJ
    Preds rule, aliens are just animals (vicious ones). Anyways i hate how alien lovers keep saying preds are gay, and that with a one on one fight an alien will kill it, blah blah blah. The fact is predators are better and more superior. They have weapons because they used their brains to build them, what has aliens done? nothing, when you compare them to pred they are nothing but mindless fools that can't advance in any way. Advancing is part of life and if a race of aliens can't do that and build weapons then too bad, stop complaining as to why preds have weapons, because they worked hard on getting them. In the end, its the smarter race that wins.
  25. aliensrule
    i just hope theres not going to be any f**king teaming up agianst the aliens it will be like the stupid batman vs superman and in the end they just team up my god i hope they dont screw this up with a alliance with the preds and the humans that would suck my balls  aliens all the way!
  26. AlienWarrior
    I think the buildings in the explosion are at the archeaologists campsite because they are in the preds temple under the ice in antartica.
  27. AlienWarrior
    The alien in the last scene looks like a predalien because of the back of the head looks like the predator hair which the predalien has. plus the preds are young preds trying to become an adult pred so maybe those are just the masks they get. at least thats what i heard. sorry if im wrong   :-\     :)     >:D     8)     ???     :D     ???     ;)     ;D     :)  
  28. Damian(pantera)
    Word up! I was reading your comments up there and I must say I agree with all that you said. I liked your Predalien idea it sounded pretty killer.  And I also hated Alien 4. Well I am gonna go get wasted now...Happy St. Patties day everyone!!!!
  29. Ssurodius
    in the other films must eat them or some thing. In Alien 3 special edition the beast was definately eating Clemens in the air vent. Blood was pooring out and Golic was trippen  out. Oh and to any abusers out there do not watch Alien films if your trippen and sunk in a K-hole at the same time...I was freaked out and i am a crazy slayer worshiping alcoholic...dude  I wanna see a queen f**k up a human so bad...imagine how sick it would be if bishop was human in aliens...it would be twice as gross...So I wanna see a queen headbite a man(,ust be bad cause there second jaws are the size of a dudes dome piece so were talking watermelon shit exploding.) I would also love to see a chestburster try and attac someone. The chestburster scene n ressurection was so impecably shity. How could David Giler and Walter allow that dude Jean claude van dam(i know his name i am just making fun of french names) It Jeane piere Juenet(I think) that does not matter because that dude is gay and I shal write an evil metal song daming him to hell for all eternity...
  30. Ssurodius
    they cacoon them...alien directors cut style.  Bret was found with dallas with shit oozin out of him.  I wander what ridley scott would say if we asked what happened to bret when we were not there. I think it was a pretty awful concept very nasty.
  31. YodasEvilTwin
    thats true, but the marines had heavy automatic weapons to hose down roomfuls of aliens, as long as they stayed out of the aliens reach and didnt run out of ammo. does anyone know why aliens are afraid of fire? and what do they do with the dead bodies they drag off? do they actually need to eat to survive?
  32. Vekin
    Both aliens and predators are formidable opponents. In Predator 2 in the meat factory predator took out 5 highly trained well armed men with virtually no effort at all. Yet aliens are responsible for the destruction of a entire race of the Space Jockeys. I think it balances out pretty well. The only setback for the preds are if one predator comes into contact with multiple aliens at once, but 1 on 1 the alien has no chance at all. Just look at Aliens. Hicks, Hudson and Basquez where able to  take out multiple Aliens but where overwelled in their numbers. So it all comes down to the number of the aliens your are fighting. The only thing is that aliens have no fear other than fire.
  33. Capt. Obvious
    Hi. OK, if anyone's seen pictures of the upcoming Alien versus Predator halloween costumes, the Alien mask has a "Grid Face", just like the screen-shot. There's green blood oozing from the wounds, which look to have been caused by a Pred net, wristblades, or a knife - even though i doubt anyone with a knife against an Alien would live. Whatever. Just stating the obvious. That's my name! CAPTAIN OBVIOUS, AWAY!!!
  34. Ssurodius
    Yo somebody may have noticed this but if you look closely at the last lil bit of the teaser when it shows the close up of an alien shooting its double jaw out. Look closely frame by frame at the left side of the alien's mouth...you can clearly see the outline of someones head...you can see that it is hair if you look close. wonder if its the same guy that gets f**ked up by "grid head" earlier in the teaser
  35. noddy
    to all <the scene that shows what seems to be a predator punching the alien in the face!! that scenne!! you have may picked this up but it is not a hand that punches the alien i believe it is a foot of a predator kick ing the alien away watch the trailer closely you might spot it out write back comments !!!!!!!!!
  36. noddy
    to Ssurodius <i agree with you with all you said it would be cool to see a change in how we see the alien but doesnt it anoy that there are rumours that there a predalien or that the humans team up the predators > i think its call that your studying film direction and production i am trrying to study film studies and media studies for my a levels
  37. Acidkiller
    Anyway,without the Aliencult, the preds have never existed. And most of the Predfans showing no respect for that but talking bad about the Aliens. I say they behave like little kids: Bu
  38. Killkenny
    Aliens Forever!!!!!!! I think this Movie will be a Shame for the real Alien Fans. The Preds are slow and without their Weapons they are NOTHING BUT GREEN,DEAD SHIT. And now Fox is killing a cool franchise by making the Aliens weak enough to be killed by only a hand full of preds.  Gimme a Break!
  39. Space Jokey
    Thanks nemo...another thing that i've seen in the trailer...look at the scene in the "Sacrificial Chamber".. the body nearest the left..i don't think it's a human with facehugger..he have a completely different skeleton and long hairs like rasta and the feet are different...i think they are predators (maybe young pred?)
