Title: AvP2 Trailer Analysis
Post by: Darkness on Aug 25, 2007, 09:00:21 PM

I have to admit, overall, I thought the trailer was great. Lots of cool things in it. I loved the blue thermal vision. If anything, the movie will have more action than AvP and especially gore. Some CGI effects were a bit iffy for me. Anyway, many of you may remember I did a Teaser Analysis for the first AvP back in 2004. True to form, here's my analysis for the AvP2 trailer scene by scene. Check it out below. Some things may be wrong, some things may be right. It's just my take on it.

First we see a small Predator ship heading towards Earth. Very reminiscent of the ship in Predator 2. It could very well be an escape ship from the ship in AvP. But as to how Facehuggers are on board as well as the Predalien is anybody’s guess.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Here's a father and son out hunting in the forest. They spot a Predator spacecraft crashing onto Earth. In the YouTube trailer, you'll see a closer shot of the craft crashing into the forest. A little later, it cuts back to the father and son in the forest. They hear Facehuggers moving about and both of them are facehugged.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Next up, we see a search party in the forest… most likely looking for the missing father and son. At some point, the Predator is cloaked in the forest and kills a police officer running.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Just worth noting that I love the blue thermal vision. Looks great.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Okay, here we see two Facehuggers escaping from stasis tubes that were on the downed Predator ship. Not exactly sure why Facehuggers held in stasis would be on an escape ship in the first place. (If that's what the crashed ship is). Plus we know, that it's not the ship in AvP that crashes onto Earth.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

A few shots of cast members. Kelly O'Brien (Reiko) with her daughter Molly (Ariel Gade). Another shot of Dallas (Steven Pasquale) and his younger brother Ricky (Johnny Lewis). They look as if they're exploring the sewer. Then there's a shot of two people running through the forest.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Another scene featuring Sheriff Morales (John Ortiz) and another officer discovering a skinned body hanging from a tree.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

A shot of three of the actors. Think it's Jesse (Kristen Hager) on the left, then Dale (David Paetkau) and Ricky (Johnny Lewis) in the front. Ricky tells his brother Dallas and Sheriff Morales that something attacked them.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Quick shot of an Alien. Not sure where it could be with the green light.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Shot of Kelly and her daughter Molly in a vehicle.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Lovely shot of the lead Predator with its dual shoulder cannon.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Cuts to inside a shop. An alien attacks Dale (David Paetkau), I think. The Predator is in the same room and spots the Alien. The Green Alien vision from AvP makes its return. A few seconds later, it cuts back to the shop and the Predator kills the alien causing the acid to burn Dale's face off.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Another shot with the Predator using its shoulder cannon as a gun.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

There's a scene mentioned in the Trailer Description post here. Molly has a nightmare or something, her father, Tim O’Brien (Sam Trammell), and her mother Kelly are in her bedroom. Tim shines a torch towards the window and an Alien jumps through. Kelly and Molly escape.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Looking up towards a firefight. Hive resin can be seen at the top so I'm guessing this is in the hospital.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Shots involving lots of army people firing at aliens.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Shot of the Predator holding a spear.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Very confusing shot below. The Predator is on the left. On the right, it's the Predalien. But on the second shot it turns and it looks like a young Queen. I hope it isn't but it's been suggested that it's a Predalien Queen. A queen wouldn't have the pipes on its back or only two arms. Looks a lot like a Praetorian from the games too.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Predator is at the hospital (notice the hive resin and the signs) and throws its shuriken weapon at a girl and impales her to the wall. I think it's Jesse (Kristen Hager). In the background we can see Ricky, Kelly and Molly. There's also another guy right at the back. Can't really make him out.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

The Predator is outside the Power Plant, I assume. Also has a new weapon, a whip that he uses to catch an Alien and then splits it in half.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Shot of somebody in a clothes store with a cloaked Predator beside him who grabs him.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Notice on the monitor, it says “Projected O.W.L.F Containment Levels”. Does OWLF sound familiar? It stands for Other World Life Forms and it’s a nod to Keyes’ team in Predator 2. OWLF was on one of the monitors (see second screenshot) in the scene where Keyes is explaining to Harrigan what’s happening outside the meat-locker.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis
AvP Requiem

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Predator 2

Scene in the sewer, maybe. The Predator grabs two aliens at the same time. Notice the strange red lasers in the background. Looks like the Predator set up a trap. I know a lot of Alien fans are pissed at this scene but maybe the aliens break free.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Scene involving a fighter jet flying and then a shot of it dropping a missile/bomb out of the hatch. I guess the military think the best way to deal with the aliens is to destroy the whole town.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

This scene is familiar. From the recent production still. An unmasked Predator impales the Predalien with its wristblades. Most likely takes place towards the end of the film. There's another shot a little later showing the Predator getting impaled with an alien's tail.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Here's Kelly O'Brien firing a machine gun at something.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

The Predalien can be seen below attacking a waitress (Carrie Adams – Gina Holden) in a back-kitchen.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

An Alien crawling down (or falling down) an elevator shaft.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

A construction worker is killed by an Alien.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Someone is dragged through a window by an alien and killed. Somebody else is trying to help him.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

This one shows the Predator running from the crashed Predator ship. Looks as if it's about to explode. The Predator has probably set it to explode to get rid of the evidence.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Here's the Predator in the Sporting Goods store showing off the dual shoulder cannons. On the left is Scotty (Juan Riedinger) and on the right is Earl (Rainbow Francks). Both are killed by plasma blasts to their heads.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Another scene involving the Predator falling, most likely in the Power Plant.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Some guy below getting a head-bite through the face. Think it's in the hospital and it's by the Predalien.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Ricky (Johnny Lewis) gets impaled by an Alien's tail in the hospital (?). Also notice that he drops a Predator shoulder cannon.

 AvP2 Trailer Analysis

Final scene of the trailer with somebody firing a Predator shoulder cannon at an Alien.

I don't think it matters if Wolf loses a cannon or two, he's got loads of new toys to use anyway, Indiana Jones lent the predator his whip    ;D

Post by: Jenga on Aug 26, 2007, 03:25:35 AM
Well we know the Predalien is a female because Colin said so earlier. So that would make it partially queen. I'm with you though, I hope to god it's sterile.  I don't think anyone really wants Predalien queen eggs or anything like that. Plus it makes sense from a real world perspective whenever a something like a Liger is created it's bigger and scarier looking than a Tiger or a Lion but it can't reproduce.

This Trailer Rocked.... it was everything I wanted to see and a bit more. The first shots of Kelly are reminiscent of Ripley in both voice and strength. Which is perfect in my opinion. This is going to be an awesome movie if not for the basic fact that we get to see more aliens and more predators tearing each other apart.

For those who think, the showed us all in the trailer ...  State from Colin:  "Don't worry, there are still plenty of shocking moments that will never be shown in any trailer."   So ... yay ^^ ...  anyway .. Trailer is AMAZING .. i'm watching it all the day . cant get enough of this .. damn.  And imo its really shocking ...  The Scene with the Kid, which got facehugged and the one girl got killed with the shurikken ... my god .. these scenes were just ...

Thought the trailer was great! i think it showed a bit too much, but the trailer defo rocks, more intense, gory and more action!  i wasn't sure about the setting at first but after seing the trailer with the whole woods and the thermal vision, reminds me of the original predator movie, it looks good! not sure about the young actors?   AVP-R cant wait, i like the logo, this movie is defo going to be better than the first  Rock On!

And also the pred DOES throw two shurikens, one right underhand, the other left over hand.  Pretty sure I posted about this, too.  Predalien could indeed look better, but it is obvious why they had to make it so obviously different (for people who don't know heads or tails what an alien is SUPPOSED to look like).  WOLF MUST LIVE!!!

Post by: Tommy Jarvis on Aug 26, 2007, 07:24:54 AM
Actually, that man is holding neither a flash light or a shoulder cannon.  That would be a Predator hand gun.  If you freeze frame the trailer during the part when the predator throws the 2 shurikens (1:19), you can see that the object the man is holding matches the object the Predator has strapped to his side.  This object resembles a hand gun.

Paul W. Anderson! EAT YOUR F*KING HART OUT!!! This is how you make an AVP movie.  Man.. the trailer is more intense the the whole AVP1 movie. The Brutal action of the predator, back to blue thermal vision and normal body size is just perfect...  The aliens look cool too...  Man i'm looking forward to this...

I Love how everyone gets all upset because the predator is manhandling 2 aliens...come on! You had your moment alien fans in avp 1.  The predators were made to look like women. Now it's the predators turn to whoop a$$. If u think back to the original avp comic the predator was a super bad ass....He was a hunt master and handled multiple aliens at once. Wouldn't you think that a hunt master like The Wolf SHOULD be able to take on 2 at once if not more.....If he couldn't he's not much of an elite predator. I'm an alien fan too, they kick ass and take names but a friggin NAVY SEAL PREDATOR....FORGET ABOUT IT! You can't get much cooler. I am so friggin happy that they are finally giving the predator fans what we didn't get in avp 1. A seasoned, hard as nails bad A$$ warrior. I just hope the movie is as good as the trailer makes it look.

Huge head sounds about right for the Predalien, as the Predators have HUGE heads compared to their body.  Nice analysis.

my only issue with the Predator-on-two-aliens action is that there's some stuff there that doesn't make sense.  I have no doubt that the predator is strong enough to pick up two aliens at once.  But the aliens have... I don't know... long arms and really longs tails.  How The Wolf isn't being scratched and whipped just doesn't make much sense.  and for gods' sake "the predators were made to look like WOMEN"? it's the twenty-first century fellas, catch up.

Post by: nchurch81 on Aug 26, 2007, 09:23:54 AM
I don't see why we get so hung up on this "predators are honorable" line.  They're bad guys people.  Which is why we love them.  I mean haven't you nocitce how they don't play fair.  It's not a balanced playing field becaus the table is tipped in their favor.  Come on people, they run around totally invisible and shot people with huge laser guns!  And I'm pretty sure they don't give a crap about people getting caugh in the cross fire.  I love me some predators... but they aren't f**kin' noble samuri warriors... they are alien monsters that kill people for  FUN.

The most shocking thing for me in the trailer was seeing the woman getting tagged to the wall like a lepidoptery specimen. I've never seen a predator take a female kill before. But, I guess you can't discriminate based on gender. Everyone has an equal opportunity for carnage.

Well, I havn't heard anything about Colin stating that the pred-alien is suppose to be a young queen. I'll have to check that out, but I do find it a little difficult to believe that a hive would be established without one. However, I'm betting it's probably a standard pred-alien warrior... or there is another. We'll just have to wait and see to know for sure.    :D     ;)  
Title: Re: AvP2 Trailer Analysis
Post by: Bio Mech Hunter on Aug 26, 2007, 12:14:27 PM
Regarding wolf holding two alien warriors by the neck with each arm, that's quite rediculous to believe unless it's only for about one or two seconds. Alien warriors (those who've gestated within human hosts) are immensely strong. The type of physiology they have alone, compared to predators, would logically indicate they would be the stronger species. That coupled with their armored skin makes them incredibly tough as we've seen in the past films. I find it hard to believe they wouldn't be lashing out at wolf with their long arms and tails either (which have a 7' reach).   :-\

People who are upset that the aliens "owned" the "pansy-ass" preds in the first film need to put their heads on straight. I'm not going to get into the nitty-gritty details of the film, but the first fatal flaw with this argument is comparing it with the AVP comics, novels and games which had so horrendously skewed both species in the first place. Rabid predator fanboys are especially notorious for revelling in these dillusions of grandier and it doesn't make the rest of us pred fans look good. Stick to the prior films to draw logical, no-nonsense conclusions. Secondly, the preds were young adults who had received much training, but didn't have a whole lot of experience, so there is some leniency.  I'm pretty damn sure if Fox had cut Anderson loose, he would've delivered the massive epic we were all hoping for. He was always for intense gore and terrifying pacing for AVP and it wasn't something he wasn't familiar with either. Event Horizon is proof of that. So it blows my mind when people accuse him of deliberately watering it down. So cut him some slack and lay off the incessant death threats and "in-your-face" smack talk, guys.   :-\   I really doubt he's reading them.    ;)

how is comparing to the comics a fatal flaw, without the success of the first series of avp there would be no movies to bicker about. Aside from all that look at the movie and look at the comics and you'll see Master Observer that Anderson basically took the whole entire comic idea and ran with it but decided to set it in the antarctic....

Dark misty background and in the middle are some decreased size images of fice characters with flashlights looking at both creature, caught in the middle.

Ok, this trailer was awesome!!! I love BOTH Predator and Alien Franchises... ALOT... and I love how the trailer gave the feel of both Predator AND Aliens at the same time... and I do agree that the first movie was leaning towards the aliens as far as the fights go, but the moive really was Predator 3(With aliens) it was there story and everything, the aliens were just and I quote "Cattle" that the predators hunted.... so it had to kinda balance out. I didnt nessecarilly like the fact that the ONE predator was killing all the aliens and holding the both of em... BUT i would SO take it, this predator being an ULTIMATE WARRIOR Predator. who's mission is to wipe out the traces of all aliens, and anybody who gets in the, I also agree the Predator seemed less honerable, BUT I think he is a KILLER and on this mission it has nothing to do with the honerable hunt! and yes this trailer was way more exciting than the whole entire first movie....

For all we know those two aliens he is holding could be impaled on something or partially netted.  But I'm also guessing this is a really brief shot and wolf is setting his cannons up to shoot them both at the same time.  It wouldn't be much of a battle if this predator wasn't capable on manhandling the aliens to begin with nor would it be nearly as fun to watch.  My only real concern is the stuff with the kids holding the shoulder cannon, all those kids running around give it a hidden teen slasher feel.  As long as they all die, i'm cool though    :P

if you hit the right nerves you can paralize an animal for a short time,people do the same with dogs and lions...and other people!.So the aliens whould'nt have to be inpaled,you'd just half to get the right nerve.And the laser tracking system has multiple functions,like X-RAY,and so forth,so that explains The Wolf using the lasers on the two aliens,so he (or she if you go by some books)whould be able to tell if he got the right nerves!!!   ;D     ;D     ;D  .

For the scene where he holds the two aleins together I don't think he'll shoot them with the cannon as this would cause a massive acid splash. Also didn't the first still come from this scene? Maybe he offs the one in his left hand then turns and thats where we get the first still from.  Also I agree the whip scene and the Predalien scene look to be in the same place probably one after the other, but in one he has a mask on and when he gets spiked no mask so maybe the Predalien rips it stright off his face?

Very confusing shot below. The Predator is on the left. On the right, it’s the Predalien. But on the second shot it turns and it looks like a young Queen. I hope it isn’t but it’s been suggested that it’s a Predalien Queen. A queen wouldn’t have the pipes on its back or only two arms. Looks a lot like a Praetorian from the games too.  Hi mate i think your wrong there . Those 2 shots are of the same scene and its defo the predalien .its a turning shot .you can also tell by the dreds on it and the horns on its back .

Post by: nchurch81 on Aug 26, 2007, 11:31:15 PM
I just noticed something kind of fun.  In the Predalien image where it's facing the camera, I took note of something goofy around it's tail.  At first I didn't think about it... but as you carefully and slowly watch the trailer.. you'll see that the that weird thing around its tail is the Predators whip an as the Predalien turns it's yanking the whip out of the Predators hands... you can actually see a little string of blackness go flying off behind the alien... just thought you folks would think that was fun.

Looks like this movie doesnt support the aliens very good.  In AVP an alien(grid) is able to kill 2 preds in a row. But in this movie a Predator is able to grab 2 aliens at the same time.  Well unless his a skillful pred not like the ones in AVP they were teenage or something. Why would a predator kill a woman with no weapons? Thats not honor or something(like in the Predator movies).

i loved the trailer.. definitely made the wait worth it. so many htings about it that just i think brought back what was missing in avp.  -of course the infra-red which everyone else has said as well.  -i love the hospital with all the secreted resin everywhere, plus if there are lots of patients then guess what, lots of hosts as well.  -i liked the flashing eyes as cheesy as that is, and the cop getting speared in the woods( no doubt running from extreme chaos which makes me wonder how the rest of the search party will get decimated. -i dont thin that the trailer revealed to much about the aliens in the sense of the amazing shit they will prolly do besides the whole bedroom window thing. -the girl getting impailed my the shuriken did have a gun therefore was armed. and then made wall candy -to answer the persons question about the predaliens features obviously the mandibles but i allso noticed the spikes on the top of the head( like a predator)  -finally to the alien lovers pissed aobut the pred grabbing those two, they do try to defendt themselves with but for some reason i think the directors wanted them to seem inferior, but its a little scene gives us pred fans a break.

also during the montage at the end that person in the hospital getting nailed in the face is killed by the predalien, you can see the mandables awesomely in this shot(1:53)

AVP FAN: There will be other Predarors who will be killed by Aliens. This was said by Colin Strause. So, don't worry!    ;)

you guys blind? those 2 pics are the same its a pred alien. if you watch the trailer slowly frame by frame the pred alien turns side ways and YES it loks different but its the same creature  and not that guy is not holding a flashlight. if you look closely they guy who says f**k YOU and kills the alien with a shoulder cannon is wearing what looks like a vest maybe kevlar or whatever and before that a guy holdin something gets a alien tail through his vest. its the same guy so its safe to say hes not holding a flashlight, but the shoulder cannon

Post by: chaz on Aug 28, 2007, 06:13:03 AM
that pred holdin the aliens was a little much BUT the guy made a good point it could be he set them up in a trap and was just holding them up. not holding them in place. they make be unable to move.   nonetheless the pred deserves some f**kin merit. the 3 preds in avp 1 sucked. yes they were young but they all got rocked

Hey guys, first time here. Enjoying what I've read.  Hope you don't mind if I give my .02  "Ricky (Johnny Lewis) gets impaled by an Alien’s tail in the hospital (?). Also notice that he drops a Predator shoulder cannon."  Looking at this scene frame by frame, it looks like he carrying a weapon. When the scene first stars, he is holding it as a weapon. What looks like a light when he is dropping it looks like a reflection of some outside light source. I'm pretty convinced it is a shoulder cannon.  Looking at the Pred vs. two Alien in the sewer, it looks like he is rising up from underwater. It's possible he took them by surprise and it takes the Aliens a few seconds to realize that trying to "jaw" their prey isn't working and switch to using thier tail.  Just thinking of Aliens towards the end of the movie.  If I remember correctly, when Ripley is in the exo-skeleton the Queen tries to "jaw" her. When she can't get her, she then starts using her tail to get at her.  Also, Ripley had the Queen by the throat and the Queen was having problems using her tail accurately.  Is this the same case?   ???    I haven't seen Aliens in about three months so I could be off in my analysis.  If I am, please let me know.  One last thing. Am I reading correctly that there is only going to be one Predator in this movie?

@ jath yes there will b only 1 pred for the most of it anyway...he will be the main pred in the film if theres othere preds at the beggining or end is unknown. BTW i read somwhere that the predalien molts into a predalien queen..... not sure if this is true..
Title: Re: AvP2 Trailer Analysis
Post by: Jath on Aug 28, 2007, 10:23:35 AM
So, there is going to be only 1 badass Predator and a horde of Aliens?  Doesn't seem very fair... to the Aliens.  I liked the trailer but I hope, like someone already mentioned, that it doesn't turn into some teen slasher flick.    Don't know if I like the idea of a predalien queen.

yeah what was up with the site being down anyways?  and about the Predalien molting... if it does indeed molt AFTER the tussel with the Wolf in the pic, then it's safe to say that Predator does use some form of med kit to heal himself and continue the hunt.  so yay it's not the end of the movie being depicted in that pic.

Cool, Predalien molting Queen, not final showdown, dual plasma casters, hand-held casters, razor whip, more bad-ass Aliens, more experienced Predator, and possibly a glimpse at a Predator Mothership (BTW The ship in AVP was not a mothership, motherships for Pred's are supposedly HUGE!)

the previews rocked i've seen it so many times and it still looks so awesome. paul anderson's verison of avp 1 was so disappointing and also very bad acting and the special effects looked like crap. now this is what the fans of the alien and predator movies wanted a good die hard action pack roller coaster ride like in Aliens and Predator. i just hope that this movie does very well at the boxoffice. someone should show paul anderson how to direct a great movie such as Aliens vs Predator not is sissy verison of alien vs predator.

I watched it about 15 times and can't freaking wait to see the green-band.  However, I can safely say this movie will be far from the best of the franchise.  The main reason = predalien. I think predalien was "pretty much" the only thing wrong with AVP.  It's so unreasonable to have the alien all of a sudden(as far as the movies go) take on the physical characteristics of it's host.  I mean, in Alien3 it didn't come out and bark or moo at anyone or grow bull horns or floppy dog ears and don't even try to say it moved differently because it was just the same in the other movies.  The second reason = questionable cast.  I think someone that might have carried the movie would be (just spitballing) one of the old James Cameron movie/1980's actionish types like Brian Thompson otherwise known as one of the punks from Terminator or the villian from Cobra.

Hi guys, my thought:  In the first AVP the aliens were sort of "powered" with the initial electric shock at the queen (in fact she produced more eggs in less time, and they grown in very few hours instead of more like in other alien films). Connect this at the thing that the preds in AVP where youngs and without experience, and, i think, you'll have the preds "owned" by aliens in AVP.  In AVP2, the main pred seems to be fully adult and skilled, and the aliens seems to be the "normal" ones from ALIENS: Final Fight, stated that, i think that the pred taking the 2 aliens it's quite acceptable.  Byez

Guys, it's definately the pred-alien.   ;)   I must have watched the HD trailer about 40 times now. lol Frame-by-frame, normal, etc.   :D    J, what I meant by comparing it the the comics, novels, etc. being a fatal flaw is that they've greatly skewed the abilities of both species. Personally, they differ from the films they're based so much that I dislike them for the most part.  I''ve been wanting a match up between the two species ever since I saw Predator back in '87 before the comics were even launched, but even then I knew that the encounter between the two species would require the predator to greatly change his tactics. Combating aliens would be completely different than humans. The problem is when the AVP comics were first released the authors tried to retain the feel of both Predator and Aliens (to a fault), and the only way they could do that was by dumbing down the aliens and suping-up the preds. Accurately speaking based on what we've seen in the Alien & Predator films, physically the preds would be outmatched, but technologically and intelligently the aliens would be outmatched.

Regarding the seen where wolf is holding the two warriors by the neck and judging by everything else we've seen so far, I wouldn't by surprised if the Strause Bros. orchestrated the scene to play out where both warriors try to impale wolf with their tails at the same time and he "deftly" dodges them both and they impale each other.    ::)   :undecided.  That'd be a another kick to the groin.   :P

Just learned of the trailer today and this is TOTALLY awesome.  I've been longing for a mix of some darkness of Alien and the intensity from Aliens. I'm a big Aliens fan and I'm warming up to the idea of having these two sci-fi horror titans duke it out in these movies but it's awesome seeing another movies created with Aliens.  This movie certainly looks WAY BETTER than the first AVP movie and I'm SO wanting it to be Christmas time already!!!

Im liking this movie very much already, however a few things bother me. This movie reminds me too much of Resident Evil Apocolypes. REA was a good movie, but i feel AVP2 copied off of it. The nuclear bomb, the "airlift" and trying to containe this whole mess. And the predator whip is very cool, took a lottle while to warm up to because i thought wolf was going a little Ghost Rider... anyone else share my thoughts?

Post by: zen on Aug 30, 2007, 01:29:23 AM
I think most of the preds are at the beginning.Every things going fine,the ship is on course,a pred does a routine check on facehuggers & eggs,but when he thinks the one is dead he anylizes it and sees that its dead,so he opens the chamber and FWOOSH!!.Its actualy alive!,and because hes not wearing a helmut,BOOM!,he falls over and a few hours later the predalien bursts out!.it climbs towards a vent,gets inside,and reaps havoc on the ship,it then crashes on earth,the nearest planet,killing most of the preds,and the predalien breakes the other chambers releasing the facehuggers and trys to start a new hive!.But thats just my idea.I might be wrong.

i love the idea of this predator being a badass killer for the new Aliens vs Predator movie. i've always wanted to see this kind of predator killing everything from humans to aliens. i am so glad that there is no human/predator teamups like in the last one. i just wish this was the first avp movie and not counting the last one which is pointless with bad acting, bad director, and a sucky PG-13 rating. i do love the predator's duel cannons and using the US military to face the aliens which i did a drawing in my sketchbook of Aliens/Predator of our military taking on the aliens in the white house lol. but other than that the previews still rock and i just cant wait for christmas. who ever wants to email me just click on my link to xenomorphaliens@aol.com.

lol Wolf's shuriken pinning her to the wall is pretty hard to beleive. In reality, it would've sliced right through her. Alos, as awesome as the new razor whip is, it being able to slice an alien warrior in half with a good hearty, predator pumped, yank is really pushing reality, too.   :D     ;)

After watching the trailer for the first time all I can say is; HOLY MOTHER f**kING SHIT!!!! I knew it was going to be bloody and awsome, but nothing like that. This movie is going to basicly combine the two franchises as they should've been in the first one. A meld of intense horror, and extremely bloody action. The brothers knew what they were doing and I pray to god if this one is a huge hit that they come back for a third.
