I agree Hicks, the original AVP comic book would have made a great movie. Its still the best piece of AVP fiction IMO. Unfortunately all we've gotten so far are some pretty lame references and homages in the movies    :-[  , they even tried to base Wolf off of Brocken Tusk.

Hey cultistofvertigo! What the heck are you talking about? Alien 7? There was only 4 just Alien movies. Duh da duh!    :D   Theres Alien, Aliens, Alien 3. and Alien: resurrection. The AVP films don't really count as "just" Alien movies.

The future is bleak for these series, and by the time they make a predator 3 straight to dvd, I'm gonna be a f*ckin old man!  Because this is like finding Moses dvd collection!   ;D

ok 7 boxofficemojo.com says avp has made in the mid 30's in the USA so far with about 50 million worldwide. it probably wont make what avp1 made which is fine cause we all know what movie is better. hopefully it makes a lot more overseas where the market it much better, i would like avpr to make 175-200 worldwide. which is def a long shot

Well, considering that AVP made $38m on opening weekend and at the 2nd weekend AVP2 made so far $36m (and the budget for AVP was $60m), i think that will be hard to beat. I seriously hope not, because AVP-R was a lot better than the first one!! Sure, it lacks some human drama and deeper human character relationships. All human characters should have been better explored. It wasn´t a perfect AVP-R movie, but still, i think the brothers took a great step in the right direction. At least they tried to respect the nature of both characters (Alien and Predator). Remember it´s their first time directing a full movie. Give them some credit. If they´re hired to do the third one i think you won´t be dissapointed!!

They nerfed the Aliens considerably so they can have one god-like Predator deal with them. Cheapening the Aliens was a stupid decision on their part, as well as including only one Predator. And let's not get into a discussion about what they've done to the Pred-Alien.

Granted, the first film screwed up some things, but it was far more respectful of both franchises (like not deliberately f***ing with canon). In addition, the Predators in the first film had a valid, believable in-universe explanation for their skill sets, weapons and armor. In AVP:R, the Aliens just happen to be stupid, relatively short, and physically weak for no apparent reason. And Wolf isn't allowed to get acid burns, evidently.   ::)    AVP:R was good, albeit flawed. It did a lot of things right, but it got some major things wrong. And considering the Strause Bros. have stated they're big fans of both franchises and have a great deal of knoweldge about previous installments, you would think the film would've turned out much better than it did. It had "Predator Fanboy Film" written all over it.  Personally, if Fox does do AVP3, I'm hoping "The Brothers Strause" get the boot.

AVP R was aweome and I hope they make a third one with the marines from aliens, I've got a good story, Marines from earth find the predator planet and engage in a full blown war then in a final act the marines come across the aliens that were captured and in the end the predator planet explodes destroying the alien and most of the predators and we have a main character almost like ripley

Bio Mech Hunter:   Do you really think the first mvie was far better respectfull for both franchises??? There was no gore and allmost no violence in that movie!!PG-13???Is that how you respect both franchises?? Taking of the scaryness of both creatures, where Aliens don´t kill people and are caled serpents??Predator prey hanged upsite down with...their close on???People getting kiled and no blood spilling??That is making both franchises an international joke!! Oh, and one Alien killing 2 Predators (wherein one of the fights there was hand to hand combat) and the Alien wins??Sure, I can accept the first kill, witch the alien caught a distracted Predator. That´s how Aliens make their kill.They take their enemies by surprise. But the second one... I don´t agree with it ! At all !!
