During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone who must continue her battle against the aliens. Along with a crew of space pirates, Ripley must also prevent the deadly aliens from reaching Earth.
After her last encounter, Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a maximum security prison. When a series of strange and deadly events occur shortly after her arrival, Ripley realizes that she brought along an unwelcome visitor.

57 years later, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during her hypersleep. The moon from the original movie has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.
Following the events of Alien vs. Predator, and the maturation of the chestburster that erupted from the body of Scar (the Predator that defeated the Alien Queen) into an adult Predalien, the Predator scout ship crashes in the woods of Gunnison County. A local, Buddy Benson, and his son, Sam, are hunting in the forest and witness the crash, but they are chased and are implanted with alien embryos by facehuggers along with several homeless people living in the sewers. Meanwhile another Predator lands seeking out the Alien and destroying evidence of their presence on Earth. The dwellers of the town find themselves in the middle of a battlefield between the two deadly extraterrestrial creatures, and the small group of survivors splits between the leadership of Sheriff Eddie Morales and the bad-boy Dallas Howard. Both have different opinions about the best means to escape from the beings. Written by

Original music and sound effects were recreated from Aliens (1986). These included the squeals of the hurt Aliens, the sound of the motion tracker, and some of the music, especially at the end. The look of the Alien was also based on Aliens (1986), that being the smooth dome is gone from the tops of the Aliens heads, and is just showing their exoskeletons. See more »
There is no reason given why the main characters are not able to escape by driving away from the town. See more »

The opening title card features many sound effects from the previous movies, such as motion tracker beeps from Aliens, and the Predator POV humming. See more »
I was psyched to go see this movie. I was not a fan of the first AvP
and I like so many others, chalked its awfulness up to being rated PG
13 and focusing on the human side of the story. Once I saw that red R
glistening after the AvP, I was excited. As it turns out, I was wrong.
Certainly there is a good amount of gore in AvPR, melting limbs,
dismemberments, even some violence against children. The Predator is
once again, the most bad-ass extraterrestrial on Earth, and it was fun
to see the infamous predalien. But the movie just sucks. I tried really
hard to look past its gaping plot holes, inane dialogue, and vapid
characters, and I pretty much succeeded in not letting those
inadequacies bother me. It was the pacing and the lack of tension that
killed the movie for me. There was no sense of dread in the flick, no
impending doom or even a sense of diabolical hunt. It just, sort of,
happened, and then was over. Some fun homages to the originals: amongst
them the return of the all-time great line: "Get to the chopper!" And
again, some fun blood and executions, but no tension, no dread, no guts
in the otherwise bloody film.
