Filming The Elder Predator – ADI Shares New Alien vs. Predator Behind-the-Scenes Video!

The good folk over at Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. have uploaded a new video from from their time working on Paul W.S Anderson’s Alien vs. Predator. The video appears to show one of Paul Anderson’s first looks at the Elder Predator suit as he offers suggestions for some changes to the colour scheme.

We also get some behind-the-scenes footage of the filming of the Elder Predator’s only appearance in the film as he supervises the retrieval of Scar’s body and offers Lex his spear.

Be sure to head on over to studioADI’s YouTube channel and check out their other Alien and Predator videos!

    i think ADI is ok with the alien but they are not anywhere near stan winston legend studio when it comes to the predator.
    Disney please use legend studios for any further predator appearences in any movie.
    Also i am ok with seeing Boba Fett getting hunted by a Predator.

    Despite he looks a little overmuscular to me i like Upgrade's design and think it really fits its "Badass Predator" nature. And that scene where he crashed Fugitive's face with bare hands really gave me impression how dangerous he is.

    Mostly true. But the face just looks...wrong.

    There is an elegance in Stan Winston designs that we have departed from. You don't need to make everything "bigger" and "better." Sometimes simplicity is the key.

    As bad as the plot is, Fugitive and even the Emissary Pred's look a lot more life like than the AVP preds

    That's fair. The Fugitive was the best ADI created in my opinion, but the Fugitive, and two Emissaries still feature the gamut of design and to a lesser degree, paint problems:

    Ironically, I would insist the CG Assasin Upgrade Predator came the closest / was the most faithful of them all in regards to Stan Winston's x mandible design. No slack-jaw, broken jaw bones there.

    Maybe it's a combination of paint and sculpt, but Fugitive (Paper-Mache-Mouth) looks fake to me in a way Wolf doesn't. Not that it matters, they're all from trash anyway.

    And Predators takes brainpower to remember it exists. Ugh, what a sorry state of affairs. I really want another good Predator film or a game.

    I want to stop talking about these bad Predator iterations, (bad practical BTS and various "Super" Predators onscreen) it's the Predator equivalent of those damn AVP 2004 renders that pushed the original Alien design into general public consciousness oblivion.

    One of these days that will change. Maybe not soon, but eventually.

    Let's hope! From your lips to Cetanu's ears!

    I know we went around the track of the sculpts, but I don't remember discussing the paint jobs. Of all the things AvP-onwards did, I never thought that was an issue.

    Except the "classic" Pred in Predators, who's just yellow with some brown splotches.

    The mandibles on the random predators are better than Scar's.
    You can see in the Day in the Life of the Predator that Scar's mandibles were totally capable of closing mostly properly (they could at least go over the front teeth, unlike the movie, and the dummy head even has the mandibles in roughly the right "open" position), they just ... didn't choose to do that when animating them?

    I wonder if that was ADI or Anderson deciding to keep them tucked to the side. I have a feeling it was Anderson -- at the least, he could've got them to change it if he wanted.

    Anderson spoke about the ramp being slippery in the commentary, but seeing it is great :D
