Q
Now knowing that the Weyland companie's share prices will drop 10% (maybe 12%) who gets to take over? Do those that have read the graphic novels and comics know how Yutani gets into it? It doesn't look like the answer will be in AVP2. I was just simply curious.

I remember originally in AvP there was supposed to be a small scene where Weyland has a talk or a phone call with Yutani about a merger, just a small little easter-egg type thing.

Idk about the comics, but they arent canon anyway. I'd just guess that in the wake of the CEOs death it opened the door for the merger to happen [faster than it would have] under whatever new CEO or w/e.

The merger's never been addressed officially - and here's hoping it won't.  They'll inevitably make it a US-Japanese merger when it's supposed to be a Anglo-Japanese merger.

A drop in share prices doesn't equate to takeover or merger.  Though a class action regarding the deaths on Bouvetoya and the Norwegian government getting stroppy about Weylan(d) Industries detonating nukes on their territory, might.

I drop in shares might (although, idk about such a small drop) but another business could just buy up all the shares. Idk thats what happened at all though.

I have a strange fascination with seeing how ends meet. That's why I raised the question. Definitely some interesting speculation and discussion on the matter. I'm sure the usual watcher might not even give it a second thought as to how Yutani gets involved. But for me, I just like seeing how it all goes down. A genesis of anything is something I'm just fundamentally drawn to.

They could put some intricate story behind it, but Id rather them not. Business is business, and multi-national multi-billion dollar coperations merge a lot, its not really unusal. Probably no more exciting than watching something about like AOL-Time Warner merge.

I also remember something in A:R about how Wal-Mart bought out WY.

Even if it's a minor mention, I'm fine. I don't expect to see a full-blown board room scene explaining the process. I'm personally glad they cut the scene like that from The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Not many people really care about intricate business affairs. That's generally why they go to such movies in the first place, TO GET AWAY FROM THAT! My dad is high up in an executive position, and he spends loads of free time watching sci-fi and action movies to clear his head and just reduce his stress levels.  8)

But "everyone" sure as hell wants to see the merging of Weyland and Yutani...

It's something that I wouldn't mind seeing so long as it's not drawn out like the politics of the Star Wars I-III. Be it a mention in passing, background news fodder or just a quick blip or something, that would please me just fine. Japanese culture is carving an impressive niche in the horror and sci-fi genre with formidable stance. I have yet to see anyone of Asian descent impaled by an alien. I think it's their turn.  ;D
