At first it sounded like a true fanboy dream: "Alien" beasties and "Predator" monsters in the same movie! And then it came out — and even those who "kinda" liked "Alien vs. Predator" would be quick to admit that the movie really shoulda been, well, better. But with each new sequel comes fresh hope, or if not fresh hope then new pics, like the one we now have for "Alien vs. Predator 2."
"AVP2" is currently being directed by fraternal filmmakers Greg & Colin Strause, from a screenplay by Shane Salerno ("Armageddon"). The flick doesn’t open until December 10th, but we know it stars Reiko Aylesworth (aka the very gorgeous Michelle Dessler from "24") and bunch of actors whose names are only slightly familiar.
But we all know who the stars of "Alien vs. Predator 2" are. The title characters, of course, and here’s hoping the sequel packs a little more "bite" than the original did.
And yeah, I think it’s kinda funny to use the word "original" while describing the movie "Alien vs. Predator."
