This is interesting. According to IESB.Net, Alien vs Predator won’t even be ready for cinemas on August 13th because edits still need to be made.
“The studio is rushing the editors and the special effects houses to get this film ready by it’s target release date of August 13th but they are not confident that it will be done by opening day. To make things worse 20th Century Fox has had to cancel the Junket for the film because they know that the print will not be ready in time. Junkets are normally held 1 to 2 weeks prior of the release date so the journalists can see the film and interview the talent involved and finally review the film. Even the films Red Carpet World Premiere that was going to be held at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood on August 10th has been cancelled due to the same problem. So will we see AVP on the 13th? Maybe but it might not be the final version that the studio wanted the audience to see.”
So is it speculation or is there any truth to this rumour? I think it’s rubbish to be honest. The MPAA have already rated the final film and all the editing has been finished. Thanks to Chris and Bloody-Disgusting for the news.
