    Just knowing it's happening is exciting... I just hope it's not a complete let down.

    I've been waiting for this since I picked up my first Dark Horse comic way back in 1990. Did anyone watch that featurette where the director talked about the plot and showed artwork. While there are naysayers, I think it sounds pretty cool.

    I think what I have heard so far is all good. The ffact that's its in present day time period is even better. I don't know if I was excited before I knew about this movie, but I am excited for it now.

    I finally saw "Alien" on DVD this weekend. It was great. I have seen "Predator" as well. So I imagine the combination will be fantastic if done well enough. Too bad we have to wait until August.

    My opinion is still the same, a movie like this can only really be real good or real bad. Hard to imagine an in between.

    I don't know...Alien 3 was an inbetweener. And Ressurection was just plain awful.

    I've read the synopsis of the script and it doesn't look good so far, it's very far fetched, and messes with the continuity quite a bit. Then again, the optimist in me secretly hopes it's awesome... as with everything, what will happen, will happen.

    I was reading somewhere that the report on the script for AVP was a review for an early draft and that there has been numerous changes since then. I'm not sure how much of a comtinuity problem will be. some things I've make it sound like an Alien prequel. Especially with them casting Lance Henriksen, the guy that played Bishop. I hear the character's name is Charles Weyland. Which suggests he is one of the founders of the Weyland-Yutani corporation. So far it sounds interesting to me.

    I found a copy of the "script" online today. I hopr they have made changes because I am not sure that one id\s good enough. I saw the "Last Samuari" a couple of weeks ago and the audience laughed during the trailer. I hopr this movie isn't another "Mortal Kombat".

    There is a new featurette on the making of the creatures for AVP over at www.avp-movie.com. This thing is really looking promising!

    Not sure, I think Fox would like it to be PG-13. But I know writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson would have issues with that. Could be either at this point.

    Yep, there is in paperback. I read it because i wanted to know if this movie was going to be worth it. I was sceptical of what the script might be like. I am happy with the story line.

    I wouldn't be suprised if it's rated R.

    I have seen three seperate TV spots the last couple of days that have really blown me away. This should be one of the best movies this summer I think.

    It's official. The film has a PG-13 rating. This surprises me but I'm not real worried. The TV spots I have seen have me all kinds of excited.

    As HUGE as the video game is, I figured on this being PG-13. I'm not sure what the big deal is with this rating seeing as two of the best movies of this year (Return of the King and Spiderman 2) were both PG-13, not to mention all five (and I presume all six) SW films that were rated PG. So there is a little less gore and language, I can live with it.
