Resurrection was 1997 and of course the prequels count. Alien Covenant had an Alien in it, why would it not be counted?

There were 20 years between Predator sequels with two Alien-featuring movies in between.

Was only a matter of time before the Prey thread became the "Alienz is still better" thread  :laugh:

We can enjoy both. It's possible. I do.

Nobody's saying which is better or arguing about enjoying either of them. Just that the Predator franchise was kept on life support by hitching to the Alien franchise.

It's now clearly being taken off life support and thriving. Which is great.

Neither monster had anything going for it until AVP. I'd say they both contribute to each other, we made a whole website about it  :laugh:

Predator benefited more from AvP than Alien. The seven years between AR and AvP was tied for the longest gap in movies in that franchise, compared to 14 years for Predator. Alien had more solo games and merchandise as well.

None of this is to talk trash, it's just that Predator hit a wall as a franchise after Predator 2 which it has since recovered from. 3 of its 5 movies were made in the last 12 years.
