Aliens vs. Predator: The Hybrid

Somehow I missed this USA Today article when it came out in October (must have been too busy with Halloween stuff). Basically, it is an interview with directors Collin and Greg Strause, who say they want ALIENS VS PREDATOR: REQUIEM to return to the horror roots of the 1979 Ridley Scott film ALIEN.

“That movie was dark. That movie used a lot of rain,” Colin says. “And that movie was scary. We want it more like the classic early Alien and Predator movies we grew up on.” 

Unfortunately, the good intentions fo the Strause brothers seem belied by the accompanying photograph of an alien-predator hybrid, who looks like an outtake from the “If They Mated” routine on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
