“AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004) is not trying to be Alien (1979) or Aliens (1986), and it’s not trying to be Predator (1987). Those are genius movies. The impact that these creatures had on audiences was immense. But 26 years on, and dozens of comic books later, everyone knows what the Alien looks like. You’ve got to do something different with it, and make a slightly different movie. So, in a way, we were definitely making an Alien and a Predator movie, but a different one from the one the other directors had made”.
If you work with a subject matter beloved by a hardcore fan base, then there’s going to be a huge amount of discussion of what you’ve got wrong or right. In some ways you can never please overly obsessive fans, it’s just impossible.
