Alien vs Predator

The poster. I am only now reminded Lance Henriksen is going to be in this thing. Kewl! A fan site is running a web poll for just how he is going to get bumped off. I would say, "using his nascent chest burster as a weapon" but we saw that in the last one.

A spoiler warning is in effect for the following Dark Horizons report drawn from an annual meeting hosted by North American Theatre Owners.

Fox had a 3-4 minute trailer of Alien Vs. Predator. It showed Bishop preparing the mission to Antarctica for Weyland Yutani. The team preparing to descend into the pyramid is given a rundown of what it will take to keep them alive as the mission was put together in a short amount of time. When the team descends into the pyramid it is cut off from the surface after a small group of Predators attack. Several members of the team are trapped in a sacrificial chamber and out of the floor rise alien eggs. The eggs open and just as the facehuggers jump there are several quick cuts of the humans fighting the Predators, Aliens attacking the humans and Predators fighting the Aliens. Great stuff!!

My Lovecraftian influence detector is going off at the mention of a mysterious pyramid in Antarctica. Think there might be a shuggoth or two lurking in the background?

Totally! "At the mountains of madness" is my all time favourite Lovecraft (excepting possibly "The Thing on the Doorstep").

Really? I never cared much for "Mountains" -- I didn't find the shoggoth bit very disturbing, and it is closer to traditional sci-fi than horror. "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" or "The Festival" is more to my liking.

Well, those and my companion tapeworm that keeps me rakishly thin. No wait, that's me with the goatee and latex in a parallel universe. Never mind.

Uhhh... Flea, remind me never to write something that's likely to elicit a response from you late at night... the results are just too weird. ;-)
