I've wanted a CG one since I first saw the trailer/intro for AvP Extinction. The above films are perfect examples of gorgeous looking CG films.
I suppose it's a matter of preference then. I haven't really been too pleased with movies that were CGI Animations of some of my favorite franchises out there. One of those disappointments for me was TMNT 2007. That put me off from CGI animated movies.
An AVP universe is not a bad thing if done right, it could be great in fact! I would love to see an AVP film done right and despite what some fans say, there is nothing wrong with there being three separate universes, as opposed to an all encompassing one which can be messed up due to continuity errors.
That's something which I advocate as to why we should have an AvP Multiverse (I've considered on starting a petition for one) and I think that it would allow room for more creativity and differences within the three universes would be allowed and better explained. I mean as much as I had believed and still believe that there is a shared universe, at least.. within the AvP movie continuity and the old EU material, I would say that's just one continuity out of three.. four if you count Prometheus.
And as far as the AvP movies and a potential AvP sequel or reboot is concerned.. and canonicity.. I'll address in my next point.
Its a simple idea really and can be done quite fine, A pure Alien one with no Predators in existence, A pure Predator one with no Aliens in existence (skull was just an easter egg not a reference) and an AVP universe were the plots of both film franchises happened in the same universe and can feature both species and should hopefully open the way to a new AVP film with the previous AVP films being non-canon
Let me illuminate you here, Crue. If you advocate that there are three universes, or at the least three continuities happening here, then you at least have to acknowledge that the previous movies could potentially also be their own universe which still connects to the first two Predator movies, and the first three Alien movies, Resurrection not withstanding. So you want an Alien universe, a Predator universe, and an AvP universe? Again.. alternate timelines or multiverse. In those contexts-- neither canon or non-canon would take different meaning and there would be discrepancies. What is canon for one universe, may not necessarily be canon for another but it doesn't mean that in context, it didn't happen somewhere in an alternate timeline or multiverse and may remain canon in the whole grand scheme of things somewhere.
Having that said.. Considering that Fox is going out of their way to seemingly keep the franchises separated and the massive reboot of the EU, and now a dismissing of four (five if you believe Rodriguez's stance on P2 holds precedence over Antal's claim)-- namely P2, AvP, AvP-R, Alien 3 and Resurrection, then they could potentially looked at as an alternate continuity if Blomkamp's movie does what Godzilla 1985 did when the Heisei era films were introduced, or what Halloween H20 did which rendered IV - VI as an alternate timeline with no plot device addressing the last three movies as such.
Just sharing my point of view and how things could work but... I'd never thought I'd say this and don't take this the wrong way, but I am glad we're not getting a shared universe similar to Marvel. I mean the canon is a mess as it is and broken enough. Not to mention I'm.. not too keen on Fox's current direction of the franchises.
Not buying this at all. I like Blomkamp a lot but it's not up to him to decide if there's gonna be another AVP movie. He's just expressing his opinion and nothing else.
This is true, that's not up to Blomkamp. But as it looks.. Ridley Scott's got the reigns to the Alien franchise and from my understanding, he doesn't like the concept of Alien vs Predator as a whole. I suppose that would be up to Fox and whatever collaborating producers as well.. like.. John Davis, since Predator is his franchise.
