Some type of acid. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the blood of one of the creatures they encounter much like in the original films.

Glad to hear it got the R rating. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Was a bit nervous that it would get tagged PG-13.

I'm sure it would be a great film no matter what, but we just don't get enough hard R Sci-Fi. smile.gif

I hope it's a good cross between alien and aliens. Scary, but not too scary with a few action elements.
post #188 of 689
Trailers seem to indicate there will be more action then in the first Alien.

I wish Ridley would "re-make" in his own vision Alien 3. I actually thought it was pretty good but believe it would have been even better in his hands.

Either that or AvP - now that would be badass.

Yeah I can almost imagine Ridley making a decent AvP movie. Almost.
post #191 of 689
I see no reason that a good AvP movie couldn't be made. The concept is solid enough. Just needs a good director, budget and script.

If he followed closely the plot of the original dark horse comic series it would be sweet.

The first Aliens versus Predator centers on Ryushi, a recently-colonized planet, and Machiko Noguchi, the Chigusa Corporation's administrator there. The settlers on Ryushi raise cattle-like quadrupedal ungulates called rhynth for export to other solar systems, and at the time of the story are in the process of assembling a shipment of the native livestock.

Unbeknownst to the colonists, Ryushi is a traditional hunting ground of the Predators, and they are returning for their initiation rites. On board the Predator ship, the prey are prepared : an Alien queen lays eggs for delivery to Ryushi. Confounding the Predator's safeguards, this queen manages to slip an egg containing the seed of another queen into the shipment.

On reaching Ryushi, the eggs hatch and infect Rhynths. Led by a Predator elder, "Broken Tusk", the Predators arrive expecting to encounter Aliens. However, they soon run into the settlers and, after Broken Tusk is incapacitated, change their plans and hunt them instead.

Meanwhile, the infected Rhynth have been loaded aboard a cargo transporter and, with a queen among their number, an Alien colony quickly takes hold. The Predator assault continues to the settler colony itself, and the surviving settlers find themselves pitched between the Aliens and Predators. Broken Tusk, now recovered due to the intervention of a human doctor, sides with Machiko, and together with the cargo ship's crew they arrange for the transporter's massive orbiter to crash into Ryushi and destroy the colony and the Aliens.

In the ensuing fight, Broken Tusk is mortally wounded, but, admiring the courage of his human comrade, "bloods" Machiko with the mark of his clan. The story concludes with Machiko the sole inhabitant of Ryushi, the surviving settlers having been evacuated from the planet. She awaits, and is rewarded with, the return of the Predators and another hunt. One of Broken Tusk's former Predator rivals greets her and, recognizing Broken Tusk's clan symbol, accepts Machiko into the hunt.

I had that graphic novel when I was younger and still remember how awesome it was. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Was that the one with the human woman who had been raised among the Predators?

Technically yes, the OG was that she ended up winning their respect by fighting with them to defeat an alien horde. The sequel comics explore her actually joining them in hunts, etc. It went off the reservation….
