Watch the First Five Minutes of Aliens vs Predator: Requiem
It's rare we'll post any clips from movies because I don't like to spoil any scene beyond what's in the trailers (I think it improves the overall experience), but for Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, I just have to! The first trailer was intense as all hell, just what we're looking for in a real Aliens vs Predator movie. The first five minutes alone is already better than 2004's entire Alien vs Predator, which is certainly good considering how much that movie sucked. And if there is any better way to get you into theaters in December to see this, then I don't know of it.
For as much as the first movie sucked and all I've seen of this now (including an R rating for "violence, gore and language"), I'm looking forward quite a damn bit to Aliens vs Predator: Requiem. What a wonderful Christmas movie to take the family to!

Just watched the clip and I'm impressed. But one thing bothered me... the end of the clip gives a January 2008 release date. What happened?

Just watched the clip, pretty sick! However, I did not enjoy the first one, so I am pretty doubtful about the sequel.

It's better than the first one by far. The problem is, the Alien Canon established by the first 2 movies isn't adhered too, i.e. it takes a while for the Alien to grow. Like the first AVP, it's "you're alien in 15mins or less or your next alien will be free!" Instead of seeing the Predators hunt this thing through their ships for the first ten minutes they shoot their weapons INSIDE the ship! Smart Move! Explosion Decompression much?? The temp soundtracks from Alien, Aliens, Predator 1+2 and AVP 1 was a good idea. Hopefully this franchise will get back on track. The comic books these movies are based on are great, the problem is Hollywood wants asses in seats and PG-13 is a mantra. Thankfully, after the first AVP, they figured it out, fans want Rated R. Personally, after seeing Alien 1/2 and Predator 1/2 on vhs/dvd so much then Alien 3/4 and AVP 1 in the theaters I'm cynical/bitter and annoyed. Basically, this is Star Wars Prequels all over again. Maybe it won't suck... ....oh who am I kidding, can they make the mandibles on the Predator any bigger, yeeesh.

k, so i'm a huge fan of both these creatures(hollywood designs) I had extremely high excpectations of AVP!!!!!!!!!!! Barny( purple Dinosaur) Scared me more LOL!! however I did my research, actually more than even the most quaified Fan & it seems that the Directors at the very least wanted this to be a mix of aliens & the original Predator! So at least theres that and the R rated part!! I believe that this film will atleast bring back the chance that AVP1 f---ed up! Not everyone will like this because they can't let go of the first one, me, well I forgave it so bring on the real deal already!!!!! Can't wait to see it 😉

Well, I'm looking forward to see it. I've been a fan of both Alien and Predator since I was a kid and went absolutely nuts when I first saw the trophy room sequence in Predator2. I was thrilled to hear the rumors of a possible Alien vs. Predator movie but before it came out I already had a vague idea it might suck. And obviously it did, pretty much so. I'm not looking for good stories, plot-lines or character build up. (at least not in these sort of movies, apart from that Alien 1&2 was more of a sci-fi/thriller/horror movie, the rest were all balls to the wall action stuff) Anyways, in AVP the Predators looked like huge espresso machines, the Aliens like ants and the whole team-up with the predator and the girl?? What was that all about? Scrape off the nasty gore stuff and the residue is your average crap movie that I don't even want to see on a plane called AVP... But this time, at last, it's good to see the directors paid close attention to the original movies. Predator looks like a predator again and the aliens have gone back to (somewhat) their original design. (although I've read that only the heads are new, the bodysuits are stolen directly from AVP1) And we see people die. I've read a lot of interviews and I don't want to put in spoilers for those who haven't, but... the gore and gruesome is back! Also, and I don't know if it will be in the movie, the original scores and music themes from Alien and Predator gets me all way back into the old-school predator and alien vibe... Also the sound effects from both entities are original... I think AVP-R will, indeed, climb out of the rubble where Paul W.S Anderson has nuked both the Alien and Predator galaxies. I think it will be entertaining. The directors said that you don't need to see the 1st one to understand AVP-R. And that is how I'll go and see it. In total denial of the existence of the first one. Sad we (in Holland and I think the whole of Europe) have to wait for another month...
