Avp: Alien Vs. Predator (2004)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Thousands of years ago, huntsmen (the predators) found planet earth. While there, they trained humans to build and were reverenced as Gods. Every century, these "Gods" would go back to Earth, and when they did, they expected a sacrifice. Humans were used as livestock to breed the vital prey (the aliens). The predators would now combat the prey to establish themselves creditable or to "carry the mark" of becoming adults. If the huntsmen (the predators) find themselves losing the battle, they would then self destruct in order to make sure that nothing survives. Billionaire Weyland thinks that he has exposed the remains of an early pyramid temple, that is a cross between the Egyptian and Aztec pyramids. It was hidden under the ice of Bouvetoya Island in the Antarctic Ocean. Now, what industrialist Charles Weyland and his comprised team of engineers and scientists didn't know was that the predators have set a trap for them. They have lured them to this remote location using a heat beam picked up by Weyland's satellite. This was done to make sure that the aliens had hosts to breed in. As the humans battle both predators and aliens, predators and aliens also have a battle of the species which will leave only one race standing.
Whoever wins... We lose.

- Whoever wins... We lose.
- It's our planet....It's their war.
- "The enemy of my enemy....is my friend."
- Sebastian de Rosa: Thousands of years ago, these hunters found a backwater planet. They taught humans how to build, and were worshiped as gods. Every hundred years, the gods would return. And when they did, they would expect a sacrifice. Humans were used to breed the ultimate prey. The hunters would battle with these great serpents to prove themselves worthy to carry the mark. But if the hunters lost, they made sure nothing survived. An entire civilization wiped out overnight. Alexa 'Lex' Woods: So, the humanoids, the hunters, they brought those creatures here to hunt? Sebastian de Rosa: And they use us like cattle. We're hosts for them to breed. The heat bloom was designed to lure us down here. This whole thing was a trap. Without us, there could be no hunt.
Sebastian de Rosa: During a big game hunt, the animals being hunted don't arm the hunters! Alexa 'Lex' Woods: They're not hunting us. We're in the middle of a war. It's time to pick a side. Sebastian de Rosa: We are on our side! Alexa 'Lex' Woods: We have to consider the possibility that we might not make it out of here.
Charles Bishop Weyland: [to the Predator] Don't turn your back on me!
Alexa 'Lex' Woods: I'm not gonna let you die down here! Charles Bishop Weyland: You didn't.
[Lex discovers Weyland with his respirator] Alexa 'Lex' Woods: There's no room for sick men on this expedition. Charles Bishop Weyland: My doctors tell me the worst is behind me. Alexa 'Lex' Woods: You're not a very good liar, Mr. Weyland. Stay on the ship. We'll update you at the top of every hour. Charles Bishop Weyland: You know, when you get sick, you think about your life and how you're going to be remembered. You know what I realized would happen when I go? A ten percent fall in share prices. Maybe twelve. And that's it. Alexa 'Lex' Woods: I've heard this speech before. My dad broke his leg seven hundred feet from the summit of Mount Ranier. He was like you. He wouldn't go back or let us stop. We reached the top and he opened a bottle of champagne. I had my first drink with my dad at 14,400 feet. On the way down, he developed a blood clot in his leg that traveled to his lung. He suffered for four hours before dying twenty minutes from the base. Charles Bishop Weyland: You think that's the last thing your dad remembers? The pain? Or drinking champagne with his daughter fourteen thousand feet in the air? [pause] Charles Bishop Weyland: I need this.
- Paul W.S. Anderson stepped down from directing Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) (although he did stay on as producer) and directing Mortal Kombat (2013) to write and direct this film.
Was rumored to be in development ever since a skull from the title characters in the Alien film series appeared in the spaceship trophy room in Predator 2 (1990).
Except for scenes with stand-ins, Ian Whyte played all of the Predators.
The theatrical trailer includes soundbite samples from the original trailer for Alien (1979) and Bret (Harry Dean Stanton) screaming.
A title near the beginning of the film identifies the ice cutter transporting the exploration team as "The Piper Maru". The ship's name comes from episode 3.15 of "The X Files" (1993). Gillian Anderson named her first born daughter Piper after The Piper Maru.
