AvP2Daily.de is reporting that the running time for the movie in Germany is 94 minutes. They got this straight from Fox. Co-director Colin Strause also made a comment on the running time yesterday:
“We were that long a while ago, but we’ve tightened the movie since then. There was a sub-plot that we didn’t want in the film any more that chopped out a bit of time, but the movie is so much better because of that. I’m not sure of the exact time with credits, but it is under a 100 minutes, which is long enough for what the movie needs to be. When you see the movie, there is a great balance of really long suspense scenes, and fast action. Longer isn’t aways better, and I personally hate walking out of a good movie that could have been perfect if 10-15 minutes of filler was cut out of it.”
I’m somewhat disappointed about the running time. I guess I always expect AvP films to be at least two hours like the Alien films. AvP’s premise was great and could have easily have been a decent two hour film if everything else had been done right.
