Maybe is just a language/translation thing. I remember that The Ring's title in Spain was "Señales" (signals) and "La LLamada" (The Call) in Argentina  :P

Who knows... the word isn't used much here, first time I heard was through the movie, in portuguese its simply added an accent: Réquiem. It was a suprise this changed because they have a thing for subtitles here. They changed Alien to Alien: The 8th Passenger, Aliens got "The Rescue", Predator 2 got "The Hunt Continues".

Samhain, you're joking but the approach you're describing in your parody is EXACTLY the kind of thing I'd be interested by, fans sharing their own very precise and often iconoclast conception of canon.

I'm not.

Ah, sorry, I didn't know the existence of the comic book Predator South China Sea so the mention of the South China Sea made me think you were joking, I saw it as a humorous enumeration, such as "I'm counting AlienS and Prometheus and KFC restaurant".

Apologies.

In that case I'd love to know more about your timeline and canon.

I see lol. No problem. Its actually the best predator novel. Could have been a good Predator 3. https://avp.fandom.com/wiki/Predator:_South_China_Sea

In that case I'd love to know more about your timeline and canon.

I still got to reread/view/play all the stuff again + the ones I haven't looked yet so I can decide better which ones I will include. The last time I wrote the events were something like:

Prometheus (B.C.)
AVP 2010 (B.C)
AVP (B.C.)
AVP2 Primal Hunt(1730)
Predator: Concrete Jungle (1930)
Predator (1987)
Predator 2 (1997)
Predator: Hell and hot water, Big game, Bad blood
AVP (2004)
AVPR (2004)
Predator: South China Sea (2008)
Predators (2010)
AVP: Eternal (2025)
Predator: Concrete Jungle (2030)
Alien: Steel Egg (2058)
Prometheus (2093)
Alien: Covenant Novel (2104)
ALIEN (2122)
Alien: Isolation (2137)
Alien: Out of Shadows (2159)
Alien: River of Pain (2179)
ALIENS (2179)
ALIEN 3 (2179)
AVP 1989 Comic, Duel, Booty
Fire and Stone (2219)
Defiance
AVP2 (2230-2231)
AVP: 2010
AVP: Extinction
AVP: Thrill of the hunt/ Civilized beasts
Alien: No Exit
Alien: DNA War
ALIEN R. (2381)
Aliens: Sea of sorrows (2497)
The Rage War (2692)

Its still missing like a dozen. It will go into more detail on my blog: https://samhain13.home.blog/alien-predator-timeline/

My site is still on progress, most of the stuff is already on my word document, but I got to organize some things before pasting on the site. Lately I have been doing a timeline of the Gears of War Universe, its easier since its only 5 games, 5 books and one continuity. So the Alien-Predator one will take a while. Hopefully I will finish this year.

Do me a favour and don't take it seriously, I just like writing timelines about stuff I enjoy, I don't want to start any canon wars.  :D

Film Canon, The Old One's interpretation;
 
  PREDATOR  (Either timeline, no references to either Prometheus or AVP 2004)

PREDATOR 2 (Either timeline, no references to either Prometheus or AVP 2004)

P R E D A T O R S (Either timeline, no references to either Prometheus or AVP 2004)

THE PREDATOR™ (AVP 2004 Timeline direct reference & Xenomorph Trophy)

A L I E N (Either timeline, no references to either Prometheus or AVP 2004)

AL|ENS  (Either timeline, no references to either Prometheus or AVP 2004)

ALIEN³ (Michael Bishop = Prometheus, Michael Bishop Weyland = AVP 2004)

Regarding Michael Bishop Weyland;

Well, it's the same as Alien & Aliens,
only this time there's directly an element
which MUST be different depending upon-
if you've watching it through the lens of the
AVP continuity. (Charles, Michael, Karl.)
AVP, AVPR, The Predator, AVP 2010.

Or the 2012+ Prometheus continuity,
where the character is firmly established
as human and simply one of many great thinkers.

AR (Either timeline.)

Personally, I'm all for a bit fanon or headcanon but people need to recognise that there is a canon and that it is dictated by Fox. At least on the Alien side. I don't know how organized the Predator side actually is. It'd be nice if they came out and said it in some official capacity or kept a list for all to see, though.

Indeed.

But what would we do without the is "X" Canon arguments?

Although I think my head would explode if I saw either F&S, TRW or Titan Trilogy regarded as Canon. :laugh:
