Ms Yutani was demoted from CEO to tracking supervisor after the events of AvPR?
Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007)
The Predator (2018)
Holy shit amongst all the spamming of "New PREDATOR TRAILER(s) number 2456............." this is the most exciting development since hearing the AVP character Alexa "Lex" Woods predator trophy spear will appear in THE-PREDATOR.
Granted it might just be an easter egg, rather than plot point, but I'm holding out it MIGHT just might make AVP canon within the PREDATOR timeline
. Although PROMETHEUS and ALIEN COVENANT were a bullet in AVP the movie, appearing in the classic Ripley/Xenomorph timeline.
If its true Disney, being the new owner of 20th Century Fox studios, want to move away from non-family friendly movie properties, franchises- then I am hoping a 3rd party buyer might chime in and do the AVP series justice.
Although I fear another TERMINATOR debacle which has lasted from TERMINATOR-3 to the horrendous prospect of TERMINATORs equivalent of an all-female GHOSTBUSTERs movie.
PS- granted I get Françoise Yip's casting in THE PREDATOR is a completely different character from AVP-R's Ms Yutani- but interesting that THE PREDATOR has the AVP movie connections.
I will buy a ticket for THE PREDATOR on release day!
