Alien Vs. Predator

Trivia: The line "You are one ugly m*****" that Lex delivers to the Alien when she kills it before the exit through the shaft, is the same that Major "Dutch" Schaefer said to the Predator in the 1987 film.


Trivia: The way the bespectacled guy shines his torch on the eggs that have just popped up in the Sacrificial Chamber (illuminating the facehugger inside) echoes of the scene in the original Alien where Kane does the same thing to the eggs found in the hold of the ship.


Trivia: The altars in the Chamber of Sacrifices of the pyramid are exactly arranged as the original hibernation pods in the Alien movie (1979).


Trivia: When Weyland is in his office near the beginning of the movie, he's playing with his pen. He starts tapping it on his desk between his fingers, alternating which two fingers he taps between. This is what Bishop does in Aliens (albeit with a knife) with his hand on top of Hudson's; maybe it was programmed into Bishop's intelligence.

Trivia: Paul W. S. Anderson wrote the parts of Charles Bishop Weyland and Maxwell Stafford specifically for Lance Henriksen and Colin Salmon, respectively.


Trivia: With this film, Lance Henriksen has now been killed or otherwise assaulted by the title creature of three major sci-fi franchises; a Predator, an Alien and a Terminator. The only other current member of this fraternity of the unfortunate is Bill Paxton.

Trivia: One of the taglines for this film is "Whoever wins...we lose." This is amusing as all the aliens and the predators in the temple are killed, leaving only one human survivor. I guess we won after all.

Trivia: Colin Salmon starts to be cut into sections by the predator's net. Likely a nod to Resident Evil where his character meets a similar fate (lasers instead of a net) - both movies were directed by Paul W. S. Anderson.

Trivia: There is a dipping bird in the background of the receiving station in Nebraska just like the one in the first Alien movie. Also, the morse code in the background says, "whoever wins. we lose."

Trivia: Just before Miller enters the whaling station on his own, he cracks open a flare. The camera then does a shot behind the door before Miller comes in, but the light cast through the cracks in the door are a carbon copy of "Aliens", when the salvage ship scans Ripley's escape pod with the same effect.

Trivia: Sebastian tells Lex how to say "scared shitless" in Italian: "Non vedo l'ora di uscire da questo piramide con te, perche mi sto cagando adosso." This literally means: "I can't see the hour to get out of this pyramid with you, because I'm shitting myself."


Trivia: During production, the tagline "Their war. Our world." was suggested. It was ultimately passed on for "Whoever wins... we lose." However, the original tagline was subsequently recycled and used for the 2007 film "Transformers."

Trivia: Despite being a prominent antagonist in the Alien film series, to date the alien queen has only directly killed one character: the Predator named "Scar" in this film.


Trivia: The Predators in this movie were played by Irish basketball players.

Question: What happened with the plot used in Predator I and II about they hunt only in places with a hot weather?

Answer: The pyramid was in a tropical climate at the time of its construction, but Yautja are sticklers for tradition so continued to use it as the climate changed.
