AVPR is still the worst, The Predator at least has better characters even if they are little over the top in some respects.

The reasons for the dark picture are a well tread topic on these forums.

People saying "Blu-Ray" is better does not address that yes indeed the Trailers had better lighting and colour contrast where you can see what is going on.

I think if 20th Century Fox did a "corrected" DVD/Blu ray it would infer they knowingly put out a defective product despite multiple 1 star Amazon reviews that likened the picture to a dodgy VHS Pirate Copy.

Not sure if anyone outside of AVPG would care and yep for 20th Century Fox they know
- It costs money
- Not interested in remastering AVP-R either single release or boxsets since new installments follow different timeline and canon now

I just realized how much the trailer spoiled the movie,  :laugh:  Though since the trailer pretty much gives most of movie away, maybe people are better of watching the trailer than the movie.

Yeah, just remembered how bad the trailer is.

It gives away most of the kills and even the outcome of the Wolf/Chet duel.
Guess they really wanted to show off the R-rating after AVP's bloodlessness.

You guys want gore? Here you got gore. Look at all those kills.

Pretty sure they went so far as to say the title "Requiem" came from them wanting to emphasise that the film was R rated, by being able to make the abbreviation AvP-R.

Not even joking.

I would believe that without a doubt  :D

In retrospective the title fits pretty well though, as the movie put an end to the franchise in movie form for quite some time now.

They said it at a convention or something. I think it's in the news archives somewhere.

I just got back from the convention.

The only footage that was shown was the red band trailer followed by the scene that I described in my original post. The Predalien looks pretty good on film and she definitely appears to be more powerful than the other Aliens. Her tail is strong enough to send the Predator crashing through a wall with one swipe. One other thing I noticed was that she appears to be a different color than the rest of the Aliens in thermal vision (she appears yellow while the rest are green). Small detail but I thought you guys might find it interesting.

A Q&A session followed after the screening of the footage. Colin and Greg appeared on stage with a moderator who worked for 20th Century Fox's publicity department. They discussed the making of the film for a good thirty to forty minutes.

Here's some of the highlights:

- The Fox moderator admitted that the film wasn't really meant to have the subtitle "REQUIEM" and that AVP-R really stood for the "R" rating.

Nothin' wrong with my memory ;D

Maybe I should do that book on the AvP films I've been thinking of. They (perhaps deservedly) don't get much love in the BTS department.
