To all that came and is to come: Who cared about how long we had to wait to see the Pred and Alien in the 1st movies? NO ONE. So just because paul mentioned or hinted that we might have to wait 45 minutes shoudn't make this movie crappy right off the back! In fact, evrything he said regarding time and styles of directing the Alien and Aliens movies is very true. I admitt, at first finding out on who was going to direct this movie (me being a die hard fan myself of the Alien and Predator franchises) I lost my damn mind. Mortal Kombat/Soldier director for AVP? COME ON! I talked major shit about this guy and how this movie was going to suck etc. But, reading all the updates that I can find about this movie that for the last 12+ years of my life I've been dying for, and all of Paul's comments and understanding his vision for this film, made me change my mind about this guy directing this movie. He understands how important this movie is to the fans. He knows what style of filmmaking is needed for this movie (ie Alien and Aliens). He understands what made the other sequels work and not work. For the 1st time, I actually back him up on this. I don't think this movie is going to be bad at all. I expect this movie to make at least 55+ million at the box office in its opening weekwned! Alien did 40.3 million, Aliens did 43.8 million, and Predator did 31million. For god's sake, 8 f**kING Mile did 51 million!! can you believe that crap? ALL YOU FANS OUT THERE BITCHIN (like me) ABOUT FINALLY MAKING THIS MOVIE, GET ALL YOUR FRIENDS TOGETHER AND SEE THE MOVIE! THE MORE PEOPLE, THE BETTER THIS MOVIE WILL DO, AND THE MORE LIKELY CHANCE THAT THERE WILL BE A SEQUEL. The truth, no matter how it turns out, I thank GOD that I lived to see these two bad ass creatures duel it out on the big screen. My wish came true! Have a little faith in Paul........ DARKNESS: THANKS A LOT FOR THESE SCANS BRO, GREAT JOB!!
