I assumed after the reaction from AVP, they didn't want him back. I remember hearing that before AVP's release there was plans for a possible sequel to have Lex back, but that after the negative reaction to the pred-human teamup, that was changed.

The script mentions "Lex Will Return in AvP: Annihilation."

I doubt it was the team up specifically so much as the overall lacklustre response -- but it's never actually been made known why he didn't return.

"Annihilation." That title would fit better on the EU.

Didn't help that Anderson just used it for Resident Evil that year as well :D

EDIT

Derp, that was Apocalypse.

Still, more fitting for those films than AvP.

There are two videos of people complaining about the lighting:

When they film the Alien bursting through the window. That's the Director of Photography saying the batteries in the torch need to be replaced because it's now too weak.

When filming the rooftop. That's the "shut up" moment.

AVP-CAPCOM's correct.



Thank's for linking that.

Yes whoever did the contrast and colour correction for that trailer (providing that might have been how the film looked before the "blackening" process) needs to do that for the entire film.

But as I said
- No-one cares outside of AVPG
- Haven't seen any new releases of AVP-R since Blu-Ray double AVP movie set and they don't fix the core issue of brightness, colour contrast or correction.

Nowt to do with "TV sets", TV settings and I'm not going to screw up my TV colour settings just cause of one movie.

I still like AVP-R though and would rate it higher if they did fix it somehow even if limited download release.

I assumed after the reaction from AVP, they didn't want him back. I remember hearing that before AVP's release there was plans for a possible sequel to have Lex back, but that after the negative reaction to the pred-human teamup, that was changed.

Paul W S Anderson said he had no intention of doing an AVP sequel in this interview. You can see hurt and contempt as the interviewer talks the negative feedback against AVP-2004.

Agree with him on the uneven tone of Resurrection at least.
He misses the point of the of the Alien's potential to come to Earth.

Because the point was, if it gets to Earth we're f**ked.

AVP and AVPR especially,
undercut that fear by saying;

"Nah it's fine, they've been on Earth for hundreds of years- at least."

So? I mean people have been longing to see Aliens on Earth ever since the original films, and the Aliens on Antarctica had been kept in check by the Predators (and the situations weren't "fine" by any means), and the entire point about the AVP films was to show the danger of Aliens on Earth and why they should never be allowed to return and at the same time tempting the early iterations of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation to go looking for these creatures again. I don't feel like your complaint makes any real sense.

It makes sense in that it undermines four movies of Ripley trying to stop them getting to Earth.

That said, is 20 months a record for a response?

That makes no sense. Please explain what the problem is supposed to be. How does it "undermine" Ripley trying to stop them from getting to Earth? They're not on Earth by the time Ripley's journey gets going, as all the Aliens that were on Earth were exterminated in 2004 (and the Alien Queen that remained alive lies frozen on the bottom of the Antarctic ocean). What is the problem?

Q
The problem is that the AvP films treat Aliens on earth as easily solvable, thus undermining Ripley's fear of what would happen if they did get to the planet. According to AvP films, the answer to "what would happen if just one of them got to earth" is "not much".
