Snooty Title for AVP 2

alien predator hybrid2 Snooty Title for AVP 2According to, the latest title for the Aliens vs Predator sequel is:

Aliens vs. Predator Requiem

I think they’re missing a colon in there, and that it should be Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, but what do I know.

To me that sounds like a pretty highbrow title for a film such as we’re expecting.

How the word “requiem” ties into AVP 2 is beyond me. The closest definition of the word that might make sense is “a mass for a deceased person.” So to whom does the requiem apply? The Aliens? The Predator? Individually? As a race?

As far as I’m concerned the jury is still out on this one so who knows? It may turn out to be decent.

Ah, what mysteries to keep us going until the Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem comes out on Christmas Day, 2007.

  1. When I read that “Requiem” I was thinking of the very end when they had the predator on the coffin type thing. Could that be what they were referring too?

  2. I wouldn’t think that they’d name the next movie after the last scene in the first one, but I suppose anything is possible. To be honest I don’t even remember how the first one ended…


  3. The predator died in the snow from the “Mother” alien and the others came to get him and it zoomed out to zoom in to show them in space and the Predator laying on a table and he’s belly pulsating up and down to show a Alien/Predator hybrid coming out and then it cuts off.

  4. Ah, that’s right… then the “requiem” in the title may be referring to the Alien embryo placed into that Predator.


  5. Exactly

  6. I don’t think it matters much what they call this thing. Any way you cut it, it’s going to suck.

  7. The title is easy! It will be called “Requiem” because the sequel will finally put the franchise to its grave!

    Always remember: Whenever the producers force a sequel to play on earth and in the present – although the material begs for a superior outer space/futuristic setting – it’s most likely going to suck!

    This formula even works for better movies like Terminator 2! We all love the film as it is now. But imagine a battle to the end against SkyNet in A.D. 2029! THAT would have been the PERFECT sequel!


  8. “It will be called ‘Requiem’ because the sequel will finally put the franchise to its grave!”

    LOL, I don’t know if you’re right, but that’s brilliant. :-)
