Alien vs. Predator

A satellite owned by Charles Bishop Weyland, billionaire founder of Weyland Technologies, picks up signs of a strange heat bloom in Antarctica which is found to be a pyramid buried under a disused whaling station. He puts together a search team comprising of archaeologists and engineers to go and find out what could be the biggest discovery of all time. Once there, the team unwittingly activate a changing maze ... and something more sinister. An agressive alien species also inhabits the pyramid and is hunting the humans. At the same time, some young 'Predators' have arrived to hunt the aliens as a coming-of-age ritual, and the humans become caught in the middle of a deadly game of 'survival of the fittest'.

It was perhaps inevitable that the two film franchises, the 'Alien' and 'Predator' series, would eventually spawn (if you'll pardon the pun) stories and games of the two species battling each other. The parallels between the two alien races of hunters were obvous and perfect for the video and computer game market. Other spinoffs include comics and novelisations. A hint was also briefly shown in one of the films, Predator 2, where an alien skull was included as a 'trophy'. It was only a matter of time before the film company behind both series, 20th Century Fox, decided to have them go head-to-head on film.

A second 'Alien vs Predator' film is due out on 26th December 2007. "In space no-one can hear you scream. On Earth it doesn't matter".
