Watching the latest Alien Versus Predator: Requiem trailer the other day I couldn't help but notice several similiarities between it and the Alien and Predator movies of the past. In fact, I was convinced that one shot had been lifted wholesale from Aliens, so sure was I that I was seeing Ripley and Newt again. Well, the good folks at empire.com have posted a series of screen grabs from said trailer, alongside the scenes they're, um, homaging, and you can see how I might have been mistaken. Indeed, in many ways it plays like a greatest hits compilation of cool Alien/Predator moments. With Christmas music.
