“Alien vs. Predator” is a feature film from 2004, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. The film involves a group of human scientists investigating a heat signature in Antarctica. The heat signature is discovered to have emerged from a pyramid trapped within the ice. It turns out that it is to serve as a beacon for the race known as “Predators” to locate the pyramid and pit themselves against the alien species of “xenomorphs”. The humans find themselves in the middle of this conflict, and find themselves fighting against both groups, before realizing that they must ally with the Predators to ensure the xenomorphs are unable to reach the surface and spread across the planet Earth.
The “xenomorphs” featured as the antagonists in the “Alien” series of films show up to menace both humans and the alien race known as Predators, who were previously featured in their own self-titled film. This film also establishes a connection between the “Alien” and “Predator” universes, suggesting that the Predator race view the xenomorphs as the “ulimate prey”, an excellent way for them to test their hunting prowess. Honestly, though, this film is pretty bad. I wouldn’t recommend it.
