The iconic monsters from two of the scariest film franchises ever, battle each other on Earth for the first time on film. The discovery of an ancient pyramid buried in Antarctica sends a team of scientists and adventurers to the frozen continent. There, they make an even more terrifying discovery: two alien races engaged in the ultimate battle. No matter who wins, we lose.
Many fans still can't quite embrace Alien 3, with some considering it the worst movie in the franchise. Some hate it simply because it kills off beloved character Ripley at the end, sending her to a fiery death. And though she was resurrected as a clone in Alien Resurrection, many simply aren't willing to forgive director David Fincher and his sequel for what it did. While speaking with London Times at London Comic-Con this past weekend, star Sigourney Weaver confirmed it was her decision to kill off Ripley. Though, we shouldn't blame the actress. Alien Vs. Predator is the real culprit to blame!
Alien Vs. Predator was one of those movies that sat in development for a long time. It was already moving forward as early as 1992, when Alien 3 came out. But it wouldn't arrive for 12 more years, with Sigourney Weaver returning in Alien Resurrection first. The actress claims that Alien Vs. Predator was a big reason original director Ridley Scott didn't return to the franchise. He wanted to do Alien 3, but didn't like the direction 20th Century Fox wanted to take with the series. He was actually on board for a long while, but bailed, with first time director David Fincher taking his place. So not only is Alien Vs. Predator responsible for killing off Ripley, it also meant we wouldn't see Ridley Scott return to this world until 2012's Prometheus.Read More

It now looks like we can expect to see the battle between the Aliens and the Predators continue in a third film. An anonymous source at 20th Century Fox spoke to Shock Till You Drop.com to reveal that another film in the Alien vs. Predator franchise is a "certainty".
The Strause brothers, who directed Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem, had originally stated that Fox intended to take a "wait-and-see" approach to deciding if a third film would happen. Apparently, the film's $128.8M world-wide box-office, along with it's upcoming DVD release on April 15, were acceptable enough for Fox to greenlight a third film.Read More

While that figure doesn't set any home video industry records, it does mean that AVP, starring Sanaa Lathan and Lance Henriksen, nearly matched its opening-weekend domestic boxoffice take of $38.3 million during its first 24 hours on retail shelves, according to industry sources.
Meanwhile, Friday Night Lights, starring Billy Bob Thornton, was the nation's best-selling DVD for the week ending Jan. 23rd, according to Nielsen VideoScan's weekly First Alert DVD sales chart.Read More
