Aliens vs. Predator 3 is “Certainly” a Go
You can’t keep a good Predator down. Or bad Aliens. Or both the humans running for their lives from said aliens and predator. Good news for fans of the series, because rumor has it that the third installment in the battlin’ aliens franchise is, in all likelihood, will happen over at 20th Century Fox. Or at least that’s the word according to a scooper who told Shock Til You Drop, a horror movie site, so I don’t know what they’re doing covering sci-fi, but I ain’t complain’.
An anonymous source over at 20th Century Fox got in touch with us over the weekend to relay the news another Aliens vs. Predator sequel is a “certainty” at this point. If you recall, the brothers Strause – who helmed the Christmas release Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem – stated Fox was going to take a “wait-and-see” approach to a third chapter, furthermore, that the story would have to continue in space (details). “AvP-R” grossed a worldwide total of $128.8 million; $41 million domestically. It hits DVD on April 15th (specs and art). No word yet if the Strause brothers will return to the franchise.
I guess $128 million, not including DVD sales, which should add a nice chunk of change to the final total, is good enough for a sequel. I still haven’t seen the second one, though…
