AvP2Daily.de is reporting that the running time for the movie in Germany is 94 minutes. They got this straight from Fox. Co-director Colin Strause also made a comment on the running time yesterday:

“We were that long a while ago, but we’ve tightened the movie since then. There was a sub-plot that we didn’t want in the film any more that chopped out a bit of time, but the movie is so much better because of that. I’m not sure of the exact time with credits, but it is under a 100 minutes, which is long enough for what the movie needs to be. When you see the movie, there is a great balance of really long suspense scenes, and fast action. Longer isn’t aways better, and I personally hate walking out of a good movie that could have been perfect if 10-15 minutes of filler was cut out of it.”

I’m somewhat disappointed about the running time. I guess I always expect AvP films to be at least two hours like the Alien films. AvP’s premise was great and could have easily have been a decent two hour film if everything else had been done right.

Ugh, I hate it when movies like this are only an hour and a half, reminds me of Jurassic Park 3.

My optimism has been somewhat crushed. I will still keep the faith but If the Strause Bros pull off great action, great story and great character development all in 94 Mins, I will salute them

This sucks. 94 min? And they promise many battles and character development? Yeah right... I hope the bro's don't pull an Anderson on us. Promise stuff and then screw the fans over.

"Longer isn't aways better, and I personally hate walking out of a good movie that could have been perfect if 10-15 minutes of filler was cut out of it."  But what he said is true, longer isn't always better. I guess we will have to wait and see. I do wish it was a little longer.

Yeah i wish this movie was going to as long as aliens (directors cut) but look at the first predator, it was only around 94 min long and it had good character development and everyone loves that movie.
