Aliens vs Predator: Requiem trailer

Finally it's arrived! Despite a fairly mishandled (aka non-existent) marketing campaign up until this point we are finally FINALLY getting some of the goods that we, or at least I, have been waiting for. Aliens Versus Predator 2, subtitled Requiem is a film that I know some people might be inclined to wonder if we really need it. Well I am here to tell you Yes. This film is a true cinematic necessity.

We all know the first AVP film had some... lets just call them conceptual issues, but I really feel that both of these franchises have more life to them still than the naysayers might argue. I mean despite what we got in the last film, we all know that the characters themselves are strong. Both the Aliens and the Predators are good solid characters, it's just the stories that need work. I definitely don't think this is played out yet; give it a good script and these fantastic movie monsters can be as great as they ever were. Check out the brand new, R rated trailer below, care of IGN, and see if you agree :)

The movie is set to come out on Christmas Day this year.

So the problem is that this movie doesn't seem to follow the myhtos.
The predators don't release aliens into the general population as far as I know... and what year is this? I thought that where Predators failed they had to go away for a certain number of years.
Not 100% sure... but just shooting the shit.
you know.

I'm not sure I see what you mean.

The plot at this point is unknown. The Predators might not have released the Aliens... where did you get that idea? I also don't think I've ever read anything about Predators not returning to a planet after a failure. Even if that is true, it could be a different Predator clan that is arriving this time.

So far as I've heard the only things about this movie that have been said is that ther ewill be NO predator/human team ups, which is a good idea in my opinion. And it will feature the Predalien which was seen in baby form in the first AVP film.
