On the tailend of the LA Comic Con, we seem to be getting a fair bit of news now and along with our report and Q/A stuff, we’ve now got an interview from IESB:
“It’s a standalone film. We really wanted to do something to set this movie apart from the last one. It does pick up where the last one ended, though, with the birth of the Pred-Alien. We actually rewind a little bit and see the birth of the Pred-Alien once again. But from there it’s a standalone movie. The cast of human characters is completely new and an interesting group of people so you don’t really need to have seen the last one to enjoy this one.”
Haven’t had time to read it all yet but from the sounds of it, it does seem to be pretty interesting and gets into quite a few things. You can read the whole thing at IESB. Thanks to fluxcap for the news.

They rewind the altar scene? But it was redesigned so it won't be the same as in AvP, I think. ???
Sounds cool, apart from the altar scence being re-made. I like the fact the bros. said that its a stand alone film
This movie looks like its gonna rock! Its got special effects, and style down. However, THIS ONE BETTER HAVE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT... If this is just a bloodbath with no thought of it, its all over.
wonder if wel c the elder pred frm 1st avp gettin slain wif the rest of the crew?
It just gets better all the time. I certainly hope for more character development, specially with Wolf, of course. :)
if so, i hope he goes down wif a fight
Good interview thanks. Lots of stuff in it is really gonna piss off the purist fanboys. LOLZ
Hmm...yeah, it would be very interesting how the Elder Predator from AvP will die in the beginning? ???
I do agree Xerxesz. I wonder how the Elder Predator will die to? I mean he might die because: #1-The Predalien might catch him by suprise.#2-I wonder if we will get to see a fight between the Elder Predator, Elder Predator vs Predalien. I like it... ;D 8) #3- I also wonder if when the ship crashes and the Predalien is on Earth,will the Predalien have any scars? ??? Well, that's all the questionns for now. :(
I think that we will see only elders dead cold body... or we wont see no elder pred :-\
Or #4 vesion is that there will be no Elder Predator on that ship. I say this 'cause the scene is redesigned, so they could have changed the Predators as well. Anyway, I hope that they didn't changed that scene so much. Lot of questions... :) But that's why we are so excited about the film.
jst wotched the clip again, realy cool wen the guys face is bubblin' wen the acid hits him- much more graphic than the previous movies, yet not as greusum as the fly 2 wen the guy peels his off! also i wonder if the aliens can spit acid again?
I did'nt read anywhere were they said the scene was redesigned.They said they REWIND,but not redesigned the scene.And Predator,if your going to bitch at us please do it in english,dumb-a$$.And i think the elder pred gets killed when he is'nt looking ;D .
In the book AVP based on the moie it was said that during the flight predaors rest in stasis tubes just like humen in aliens. P. Anderson cut this idea from the movie. I think that is how Chet will kill them all
Zen: It was said by Colin earlier that the altar scene is redesigned. Nomad: Yeah, that could be so. The 'Texas script' says that the PredAlien kills a bunch of Predators in their criostasis tubes. And we know the script of AvP-R is based on the Texas script but it was rewritten many times.
It's a standalone film. We really wanted to do something to set this movie apart from the last one. It does pick up where the last one ended, though, with the birth of the Pred-Alien. We actually rewind a little bit and see the birth of the Pred-Alien once again. .... that's what they say, but after that, i think nothing will be mentioned about the first film. I like the idea of a fight "Alien" stile, except this time the humans are replaced by predators, who have no idea what they brought on their ship, and are eventually killed by the Predalien, only one survives, like Ripley, and goes on a clean-up mission like in "Aliens". This will be so damn good!
*Points at Yautja* Learn how to type understandable english please. *Points at Semaka* Use Quotes when youre quoting. And oh, the Predators will more than likely be in Stasis-Tubes and just be murdered by the Pred-Alien On their way. Or a few predators (like Wolf) Manage to escape their Cryosleep, (via security on the ship) but most die fighting the predalien. Wolf is the only one left, and the ship crashes. (unless he has a parachute :P) Im guessing the entire scene of the Predalien Wiping out the ship, will be rather short. Like what happened with Ripley in the beginning of Alien 3. The only thing i cant piece together, is if Wolf fights the pred-alien during the crash. Or how exactly the 2 seperate, and not just finish the fight right there in the woods.
you guys are idiots... Wolf was not from the avp ship he was sent to clean up the mess of all the dead predators and to kill all alien threats.That's why his name was the cleaner
soz bout the letterin' but im frm the north east england, its how we spell wen sendin' a txt msg- its quicker and not hard 2 follow
on the trailer, at the very begining wen the ship is crashing theres a small explosion on its side...an escape pod maybe?
Yeah, the question is: 1. Is Wolf on the AvP ship and escapes on a pod we saw in the PSP game before the ship crashes? 2. Or will Wolf come to Earth later on an other spacecraft?
i think its more likely 2 b question 2 XERXESZ, coz this guy is a reel tuff nut and i cant realy imagine him leavin a battle only 2 hav 2 go back and fight an even bigger problem wen he cud hav jst sorted it in the 1st place?
Will we be able to see the clip shown at comicon at some pint ????
YAUTJA, type properly you retard, it doesn't matter where you're from.
avp 2 its goming really sooon in earth :o
look, im not hear 2 make enemies- so less of the retard thing pal- get off my back. if i upset u so much , dont read my txt
Neca masked predator figure. Looks like a female pred. http://www.forbiddenplanet.com/products/28055?fpn=20071102
yea JK, the necks realy long too
I really hope they make a AVP 3, Aliens VS Predator - Requiem sounds cool and I am one of the few people who likes Alien VS Predator. But one thing, I really hope they do not explore the space jockey's, the Alien home world or the Space Jockey home world in AVP 3, I want that to either be in Alien 5 or not be done at all and retain the mystery. If Alien 5 is made, I would hope it would take place after Alien Resurrection and not be a prequel, otherwise Ripley could not be in it, and I want her to be in one more Alien film, after Alien Resurrection. Also, why is there no Predator 3? Second one was good. Also, Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 all did well and made profits, so 20th Century Fox is wrong in saying that the last two Alien films did not do well, when in fact just Alien Resurrection underperformed, and Predator 2 underperformed for some reason. Predator did well though. So here is hoping If AVP 3 is done, that it does not do anything that should appear in Alien 5 or Predator 3, and I don't care if 20th Century Fox does not want to do them, just leave those ideas to the seperate franchises or do not do those ideas at all for the sake of retaining the mystery, otherwise it shows no originality on the filmaker's part and 20th Century's part as well
;D exactly Simons, ex-act-ly. The space jockey idea is indeed extremely, veeeeeeeeeeerry tricky to do ( now don't get me wrong, the brothers seem that they are inetirely up for the job, BUT there are some real, HARDCORE Alien fans and to mess with that you literally would be bringing HELL) I still 100 % + behind them, and once the movie recieves its Premier opening I'll be there to big them up, they have showed nothing but true dedication and for that I think we should all say a BIG ' thank you ' to them from bringing back, not one ... BUT TWO franchises back from the brinks of it both nearly being over. FOX should go the direction of what MGM are doing with Terminator ... NEW ALIEN ;D
if a 3rd film came out i dont think it shud rush straight into outer space....maybe it shud start off on earth (maybe in a city?) then introduce it to space and end it hangin' onto another sequel
How can this be a Stand-Alone movie when the film begins where the 1st one ends? That doesn't make any sense?!? ::)
??? Wait a minute, remember in AvP when the Elder Predator and the other Predators take Scar and leave. That has got to be the ship that the Predalien is in, and all the other Predators are in to,including Wolf and the Elder Predator. ;D Therfor the ship that crashes to Earth is the same ship from AvP. :)
If you don't believe me then think about it hard.If it was another ship then how did the Predalien get on that other ship then.... :-\ ;D It has to be the ship from AvP if not, then it must be another Predalien on another ship.Anyone got anything better than my idea? ???
:o The masked Pred. looks sweat,cool, and AWSOME!!!!!! 8) He shure does have a long neck though... :-\ ???
@ ZERO .T 201.369...maybe the predalien attacks and a few preds decide to abandon ship in a pod but stored away on bord is the predalien, resulting in more mayhem and a downed ship... then wolfe comes in?
It is the ship from the 1st movie because they will REPLAY the birth of the Predalien. But we don't know for sure if Wolf was on that ship, he could be returning from hunting, and he heard that the Mothership crashed on Earth, and came to see what has happend, and then he finds out about the aliens (because we can see in the trailer that he hangs a corpse on a tree in the woods, like in Predator movie. I think after that he notices the aliens.
i think the guy hanging frm the tree is part of the hunting party lookin for the crashsite or the father and son, who gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time
yeah, but, i still think that Wolf isn't on the ship from AvP. Because he isn't hurt from the crash, and i think in the trailer, there is a scene with Wolf, and behind him is a ship, smaller than the one that crashed, i think it is his ship, although I think the ship is going to blow up.
look at the r-band trailer, and stop it exactly at 1min and 49 sec. There is the ship, behind Wolf, is small, I think that is his ship, and he wasn't on the main ship.
i agree SEMAKA, unless its jst a perspective shot or a certain part of the ship which is smaller?
Semaka: In the red band trailer it is not Wolf's ship. That ship is going to explode so it is the crashed scout ship. And don't forget guys that the main AvP ship is redesigned. So it could be that we won't recognize it.
YAUTJA....Predators arn't wusey's you know,they can fight back.Out of all the Predator movies,books ect.. I have never seen a Predator run away from a Alien or a human. ::) It has to be on the mothership, if anybody thinks they can prove me wrong, than tell me. ::)
Zero.T201.369! Not of necessity has to be on the AvP ship. Just think about it: the team is looking for the hunter and his son at night in the forest. And then we see Wolf's thermal vision mode so Wolf is in the forest at the same time. So he comes later than the crash-landing of the scout ship. So he comes on an other ship. Am I right, Colin? ;)
The ship in the trailer that is crashing to earth is the one from AVP. The Wolf comes after, he wasn't on board that one, then the fun begins, I think the 'pred-alien on board and killing predators' scene will be like the scene in Alien 3. I mean they aint going to show the pred-alien rite at the start of the movie, they will only show a glimpse...get the suspense. We will see Chet in the middle or late in the movie. Rock On!
P.S can we all stop arguing, we are all here, because we have a common interest Rock On!
One thing I like the trailers and clip is the detail of the both the alien & predator, for instance when the wolf looks up at the alien (in the store showdown clip) his shoulder cannon moves up with a slight delay just like in Predator and Predator 2, to me thats great because when i was younger i'd do the same thing while pretending to be the predator, this movie is got action, violence and gore and hopefully it will have depth and an atmosphere and good characters and story like the original films! So far from what iv'e seen overall, I lke 90% and thats good. peace to The Brothers Strause
My point exactly Optimus Virus, its gonna be like a small tap on the shoulder of Alien 3. (I believe its going to be INTENDED like that by the directors)
yep! u rite XenoFox ;D Rock On!
so we see the predaliens brith again but i cant see the movie makers showing us a big alien vs predator fight on the ship at the start of the movie it would b like the first blade movie with the big action at the start and then the rest of the movie couldnt top and with only $40-45 mil when alien 3 was 90 mil in 1992 i think but wolf vs the predalien i hope gose down as 1 of the grate fights on movies
Cant wait till this movie comes out...i cant wait till january its too long!
Were getting close are you ready
Cant wait till this movie comes out...i cant wait till january its too long!
i agree optimus virus with ur comment about predalien scene being like alien 3. p.s zero t 34340989 or whateva ur name iz stop causing trouble >:( bitch
Optimus Virus it will be here before you know it ;D
PREDALIEN-K. | 05 Nov 2007 23:4374 Optimus Virus it will be here before you know it ______________________________ hopefully? lol ;D
i dint like the way the preds looked from the first one but i hope they didn't change them for the ship scene.
yeh i agree bobchunk...it wont make sense if the preds arn't the same as they were in AVP.
I wonder how avp-r is going to start, like when the titles come up, what kind of music they use and what the predalien scene is going to be like, i really hope at the end of the movie they use the 'population trailer' music is got a sad yet emotionally sound to it?
Yeh iv'e often thought about that, mr teal i suppose the movie will start will the usaul 20th fox thing then the predator ship scence and then the titles and the ship crashing, like alien 3 starting (quick shots) then the movie will start with the father & son hunting, then after a few charcters have been set up, the lone ranger 'the wolf' will come down and the fun and mayhem will begin woohoo!
What did you guys think of the Predator Mother ship from AVP? I noticed the ship in AVP-R looks like the one from the first Predator film.
i agree predalien-k the ship in the trailer of avp-r looks like the ship from p1. I think the ship we have seen in the trailers ins't the mothership from avp1, I think its the ship wolf is on and a pod is going to be realesed (like at the start of predator) to earth on this pod is the wolf, the mothership from avp we will see in the movie.
why all the debate just go see the movie dec25 or get the book and read it to see how the movie is going to be that way you all will know
does anyone know if there is a book out based on the new movie?
Boi, this film will errupt ;D ;D ;D I know that the brothers have struck GOLD with this, hell am doing my best to sell this film to every person I meet, I want it to do well. I did like anderson's treatment but as I had mentioned on another post it just didn't execute in the way WE all really wanted it to. If this movie dominates (as it will) then that AVP 3 movie won't be so long away.
WTF It's a standalone film. We really wanted to do something to set this movie apart from the last one. yet it left off were the last one ended?
Want an ALIEN 5? Ridley Scott n James Cameron or NO 1....
"It's a standalone film. We really wanted to do something to set this movie apart from the last one. yet it left off were the last one ended?" i think he means its not about lex or the elder pred. its like predator 2 its not conected to the first one ecept that they mention the events of it.
Is there any possibility that we will see clip from comic convention? Does 26 of desember is the day of premiere only in America or in some parts of the Europe? ??? I dont want to wait till january.
we got a halloween present NOMAD, maybe we'l get a christmas gift i.e. the comic con clip? hope so
to nomad, Dec 25th is the U.S release and Jan 18th is the U.K release Dont worry i have to wait till january aswell lol. Its only like 6 weeks dont forget, the tempatation is better than the actual thing. ;D
6 weeks sounds so soon, cant wait!
Well, the premiere of AvP-R will be on January 31th 2008 here in Hungary. So, I'm in the worst situation. >:(
Dec. 25th here Xerxesz... ;) ;D
International poster. http://www.filmz.ru/film/2590/posters/3890/
Cool! poster..JK what language is that? what country is that poster for?
I want to say is russian.
Cool! i was just over on thebrothersstrause.com its got all there work like 16mm mystery and there music videos and commercial's really cool! check it out! oh yeah go to braintylermusic.com and check out the constainine soundtrack and his other stuff Im doing this because im trying 2 get a feel of the AVP-R is going to be like! yeh i know im a geek! oh well! ;D
... If that poster is IN RUSSIAN (I dont know for sure) Then you have your answer right there... ._.
I wonder about the Predalien. When the chestburster came out of that girl in AVP, it came out in only a matter of seconds after she woke up, but when the predalien came out of scar, it may have been several hours after he had been facehugged that it finally came out. I know alien queens have a longer gestation period, so isn't it possible that the Predalien has some Queen characteristics?
The poster is in Polish, the webpage is Russian.
Its a Predalien Queen, n YES I LOVE D IDEA! OK Da dog alien took characteristics from a dog, why not a queen alien takin it from a predator? PREDQUEEN! Dis makes da ALIEN more possibly real but stil SCI FI but possibly real. Gd JOB bros
'RIGHTEOUS!" PRAISE THEE BROTHERS STRAUSE!
They said that the ending would tie the films together... Sounds interesting. Kinda sucks. They tease us with all this stuff which is going to make December 25th seem a century away. After that, I'll be good. So far, this and Resident Evil Extinction are the only movies I've actually wanted to see. One down, one to go...........
;D im so glad its a stand alone movie. colin and greg are my fav directors better than the ridiculous movie from paul w.s. anderson that wasnt on the scale of 1 - 10. its alien domination 1 predator against about 50 aliens new weapoons this film luks mint. colin and greg please direct an avp 3
