Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited 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.
In 2018, a mysterious new weapon in the war against the machines, half-human and half-machine, comes to John Connor on the eve of a resistance attack on Skynet. But whose side is he on, and can he be trusted?
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
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

The Predator was nicknamed "Wolf" by the filmmakers, after the character Winston Wolfe in Pulp Fiction (1994). His role in the film, like Wolfe's, is described as that of a "cleaner" - one who covers up assassinations, accidents, and other messy situations. 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 »
This is a poor film. The only small saving graces that can be salvaged from it are those brief but flawed insights into predator culture. Those small flashes however were explored and abandoned within the first 10 minutes of the film, in order to make way for the gory horror-fest that this film tried to be. It fails because it's not even any good at doing that. If you want a gory alien invasion film set in present day America, see Slither - you'll be much more entertained.
The rest of this picture consisted of tepid character development, including a wonderfully pointless teenage angst girl struggle with the obligatory jock and his cronies. The acting was at best adequate, but did it's job to service the director's apparent goals: gory alien action and cool deaths with explosions.
I'm genuinely baffled as to whether the rights holders for these two pedigree science fiction franchises either cannot (through lack of available talent), or will not (through some baffling and incorrect cost/benefit marketing formula) attempt to reproduce the tension, horror and vivid visceral action of their forebears. I don't know if either can even be saved now that they've had this done to them.
If you're the most rabid Alien or Predator fan you might want to see this movie just to witness those creations on the big screen again, but if you genuinely admire and enjoy such great films as Predator, Alien and Aliens then you'll probably come away feeling slightly sickened, if only because the satisfaction you were looking for isn't to be found in this film.
