all i have to say about this whole matter is:  when i heard there was going to be an AvP movie, i was really really excited to put it lightly, then when i heard who was making it, i cried.  Then when i heard it was pg-13, i cried some more.  RIP AvP

wait one more comment:  ok, ridley scott, James cameron, two giants in the film industry, responsible for some of the greatest movis of all time, and then here comes Paul Anderson, responsible for Mortal Combat.  Anyone who thinks that this movie can be good or even begin to stack up to the originals, is sadly mistaken, and just plain blind.  thank you.

I Robot-PG-13, The Bourne Supremacy-PG-13, Spiderman-2-PG-13, The Bourne Identity-PG-13, Minority Report-PG-13, The Italian Job-PG-13, The Scorpion King - PG-13, LORD OF THE RINGS-PG-13!!!         There was a time when a piece of work was judged by it's cinamatographic qualities and NOT by the amount of fake blood gushing from a gaping wound in someone's chest. Gone are the days when Alfred Hitchcock could hold the rapt attention of thousands of people and simultaneously make them all shiver and jump at the mere sound of a shower curtain being pulled back or a shadow entering through a creaking door. Or are they? I was in the theater watching M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs" (PG-13) when the entire room scream at seeing an alien's fingers come out from under a door and try to grab Mel Gibson. People screamed and jumped in their seats. AND THEY HADN'T EVEN SEEN THE ALIEN YET!!!      It truly amazes me that there are so many of you alleged AVP fans spouting negative commentary over the possible lack of violence, and bloodshed, and foul language that may or may not be present in AVP. What about the time when kids COULD go to the movies to enjoy a good monster flik? What about the folks (and there are millions of us out there) that love Sci-Fi movies but don't want to see all of that gore because they would like to take their kids and let them see two of the greatest movie monsters of all time duke it out on the big screen? I love Aliens and Predator, not because of violence or gore, but because it's darn good Sci-Fi!! The first two Aliens movies didn't even have that much gore in them they were rated R because of the language. The truth is that the studies are true. Violence, gore in movies and television, and graphic video games have so desensitized people that the idea a movie would not be gratuituously violent and gorey is something repulsive. You want graphic violence and gore? Turn on CNN for crying out loud! Take a look at what is happening around the world! With all of the violence and suffering going on in the world you people want to go "relax" by seeing more of it? Have you all lost your minds? Folks, it's called escapist entertainment because it's supposed to take you away from reality for a couple of hours!           True AVP fans (myself included) have been waiting for years for what was said would never happen. We've read the comics, the novels, etc. And we've waited. So, why do you want to bash Paul Anderson? If someone handed one of you a few million dollars to make this film but they told you it had to get a PG-13 rating, every last one of you would quit griping, take the money, and do the best job you possibly could to make it happen!! I know I would! So, just get some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the film. Despite all the negative comments YOU KNOW YOU'LL BE IN AUDIENCE WATCHING IT ANYWAY!!! HHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

Arashi-Kurai , i remind you of what you already know, the first alien was r rated, and had very little gore.  it relied on good suspense, and excellent cinemetography to scare the audience.  i have no doubt that there have been excellent pg-13 movies.  but w/ this kind of franchise, a little blood is kinda the theme, and much will be lost from it.

one more thing, the original alien and predator movies were not 'monster flicks' meant for young audiences, as this AvP is obviously trying to be.  they just want more money.

Arashi-Kurai,I could have not put any better sense to what you have said already,but it won't matter what you say,some people can't understand that a good movie doesn't really need the gore,but some need a little reality to their fiction,personally I just don't want FOX screwing up the story line or the Alien's biology/morphology or the Predator's culture(what we've found out),they already messed up a little with their faces,and the Aliens,hmph! don't even get me started.I just wish I could get scared as to when I saw ALIEN,but commercialisation has a need for bucks and as I'm sure everyone knows about the original ALIEN toy fiasco,movie industries and toy companies are trying to come into an agreement,so with what that leaves us with? well SPECIAL DIRECTOR'S CUT EDITIONS of the movie and really ass kickin' toys,figures and models,also cool comics,I agree on certain levels with everyone,so what's the best thing to do? just watch the figgin' movie,cry if it's good and cry if it's ALIEN RESURRECTION(haha).Yes if it sucks we can kiss the franchise good bye and wait another lifetime before anyone dares to touch them,but hey that happened with ALIEN RESURRECTION and we have AVP,we can hope if that happens that at least FOX can make a tv series...ow!!...who threw that shoe?...Hey!!...owowowowowow.....

Man I cant wait until this goes down. Two things I always wondered : who wins between  the Aliens and the Predators and who woud win between  the Marines and the Merc's. I can only hope its great , with truly no winner but many C.O.W's .  Is it me or does the Aliens look more ferocious then ever and has the Predator been lifting weights? By the way the title of Ultmate Badass in Aliens goes to Pvt .Vasquez / Hudson (leaning towards Vasquez I mean she was ready to go back for the Apone and Dietrich w/ no hesitation)  , Predator - Billy (no question)

i know that the amont of blood and gore dosnt detirmine how good a movie is. I love movies like star wars and spider man ant there is no blood at all in those movies but the theme and concept of an alien vs predator movie is people and aliens getting torn apart limb by limb. ARASHI KURAI dont tell me that i would sell out the fans of AVP. i dont think you have ever read an AVP comic. films can stilol be good without blood and gore but its not right to take these two movies and turn them into a movie for the whole family. seriouly the last movie came out in 97 not many 13 year old kids even know a thing about AVP.

Hudson2badass,where da hell have you been hidin'? no offense,but did you wake up from a 1986 coma? Dude get up to date with the movies bro.As for the throw down between both species,well it could be a tie or of course the Aliens win,or the same situation that happened in the pyramid(see more AVP trailers) could repeat itself,hence the insisting annoyance of Weyland corp.(before Weyland Yutani)on obtaining an Alien specimen.Buy the Alien Quadriology & both Predator movies.OW!!!...stop throwing at me.

Eternal Alien , I've seen every installment i the Alien series and both Preadator 1&2. But I own Aliens and Predator  becuse thse are my favorites from the franchises. .. The trailer isnt the moview just a taste, yess "they' have the numbers but we dont know was gonna happen. I say the only way we can be sure is nuke the planet from orbit!!!!

About this PG-13 crap ----- according to the title it's Alien vs Predator even though we are there the base of the killin is gonna be  alien on alien right? not like he other movies ... so green blood / long heads / heads w/ dreads will b ripped off but non human dismemberment does'nt usually get the "R"  true there are some humans in the movie and u want them to die horrible deaths but the real fight isnt w/ us we're  just pawns used by both teams. How can the feel of the movie be R if the primary fight is wit them. its 2004 we wont be scared because we know its fiction( not like were watchin TTCM , i swear after that one ppl in the theater wanted them lights turned on quick ... coulda swore i heard a chainsaw on my way home) We're on an express elevator to hell - going down!  Hey Eternal what u doin @ that other table?.........Guess the new lieutenant's too good to eat with the rest of us grunts.

Why does everybody want this to be so gory as the last Alien and pred movies. They were the worst bloody ones.    ???
