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. Along with a crew of space pirates, she must again battle the deadly aliens and stop them 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 has brought along an unwelcome visitor.
Charles S. Dutton,
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.
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

It is the shortest installment in either the Alien or Predator franchise, with a runtime of ninety-four minutes (theatrical version). See more »
(at around 3 mins) At the beginning of the movie when the hunters find the downed space ship, one hunter uses the butt of his gun to tap the ship. While he is doing this, he points the barrel of his rifle at his kids head. This is not the safest way to use the gun, especially considering he is taking his young son hunting. See more »
Okay, now, take your time. There you go.

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 »
Aliens battle Predators on Earth where unsuspecting residents realize that something horrible is stalking their little town
Spectacular but mediocre Aliens/Predators movie set in a little town where a motley group takes on extraterrestrial monsters . As warring alien and predator races descend on a small town, where unsuspecting residents must band together for any chance of survival and they find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legend beings .
Stirring but inferior sequel with plenty of thrills , chills , suspense , disgusting special effects and lots of blood and gore . In fact , this is the second Alien film, and also the first Predator film, to get a rating other than R . It was decided at an early stage that this movie would be R-rated as "it is what the fans want from the series". Moving and thrilling screenplay by Shane Salerno based on "Alien" characters created by Ronald Shusett and Dan O'Bannon as well as ¨Predator" characters created by Jim Thomas and John Thomas . This is the first movie in both the Predator and the AVP-based movies that actually feature scenes of the Predators' home planet. It was at one time hoped to include scenes of the Aliens' home world ; conceptual art was created and it was even storyboarded to be used as the closing shot of the movie, but ultimately the idea was dropped in favor of using it in a potential third film . ¨Aliens versus predators¨ I and II were a project that had floated around for about 10 years , it was only when director Paul W.S. Anderson and Strause Brothers did his verbal pitch to the suits at 20th Century Fox that anyone showed any real interest . This horrifying as well as heart-pounding movie contains shocks , stomach-churning violence , filled with action , thrills and results to be pretty entertaining . This nail-biting picture contains tension from start to finish , gory scenes aplenty , thrills , some strong scares , slime , emotion , entertainment and so-so acting . It is an acceptable though middling cinematic combination of Sci-Fi , monster movie and terror . This is a brutal , considerable violent and exciting sci-fi thriller that scales new heights of savagery even by the standards of the 70s , 80s , 90s and 2000s . The result is a throughly violent but undeniably thrilling action movie with an unknown though passable cast giving sweatily good value to their abrasive characters . Based on the comic books by writer Mark Verheiden, creator of the first Alien vs Predator comic series and the first story involving both species , contrary to popular belief, the comic was released prior to the infamous shot of the alien "skull" in Predator 2 (1990) . The Alien vs. Predator story crossed over virtually all forms of media before becoming a feature film . There was a successful comic book series, toy line, multiple video games, soundtrack of the PC game and even a trading card series . Breathtaking as well as bloody slaughter sequences took long time to shoot and were extremely difficult to make . Magnificently designed creatures , originally created by the artist HR Giger . Top-notch special effects by SFX designer Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr ; the latter has a brief cameo , in fact this is special effects maestro Tom Woodruff's fourth time in the alien costume . The Animatronics were controlled by a motion-control rig which could save her movements digitally . The ending part is particularly exciting with our protagonists battling the malicious aliens as well as brutal predators and with impressive scenes that took various weeks to film . ¨Aliens vs. Predator 2¨ (2007) by Strause Brothers has a decent but little known cast such as Steven Pasquale , Reiko Aylesworth , John Ortiz , Johnny Lewis , Kristen Hager , Ariel Gade , Sam Trammell , Gina Holden , Ty Olsson and Robert Joy . The picture packs an original music by Brian Tyler , plenty of frightening and stirring sounds . However ,some score and sound effects from previous films in both franchises were used in this film . Colorful but dark cinematography by Daniel Pearl with several scenes filmed at night . The motion picture was regularly directed by Colin Strause and Greg Strause both wanted the film to be 3-D, however the idea was dropped, because it would be too expensive. Being shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada ; according to directors , if they'd filmed in Hollywood, the sets would have cost them $20 million .
There was seven years between the release of Alien (1979) and Aliens (1986), six between Aliens and Alien 3 (1992), and five between Alien³ and Alien resurrection (1997). The original and the best was ¨Alien¨ by Ridley Scott , it was starred by Sigourney Weaver as a great action woman similarly to Sanaa Lathan ; it is followed by ¨Aliens ¨, also visually astounding by James Cameron with Paul Reiser , Jenette Goldstein , Lance Henriksen ; and this Alien . All of them starred by the great Sigourney Weaver who performed one of the best female leads created in years followed by Sanaa Lathan . Furthermore, ¨Alien vs. Predator¨ (2004) that was first film in the "Alien" franchise to not feature Sigourney Weaver, who has said in interviews the idea of the crossover "sounded awful and ¨Aliens vs. Predator ¨ (2007) by Paul W.S. Anderson with Sanaa Lathan , Raoul Bova , Ewen Bremner , Tommy Flanagan , Joseph Rye . The original and the best ¨Predator¨ (1987) by John McTiernan in which Arnold leads a team of CIA-hired mercenaries into the Central American jungles with Jesse Ventura , Bill Duke , R.G. Armstrong , Carl Weathers , Elpidia Carrillo who appears briefly in ¨Predators II¨ with Bill Paxton , Danny Glover , Ruben Blades and ¨Predators¨ (2010) by Nimród Antal with Adrien Brody , Topher Grace , Alice Braga and Walton Goggins
