Alien vs. Predator, alternatively known as AVP: Alien vs. Predator, is a 2004 American science fiction/horror film directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. The film is based on the respective Aliens and Predator film franchises by Brandywine Productions and Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation as well as the Aliens vs. Predator family of comic book titles published by Dark Horse Comics. It is the fifth film in the Aliens series, the third film in the Predator series and is the first of the two crossover films. AVP was released theatrically in the United States on August 13th, 2004. The film stars Sanaa Lathan, Raoul Bova, Lance Henriksen, Ewen Bremer, Colin Salmon and Tommy Flanagan. This film is the first in the Aliens series to take place on present day Earth and chronicles humanity's first encounter with the Xenomorph aliens as well as the Yautjas, the hunter-killers known colloquially as the Predators. Alien vs. Predator follows a group of paleontologists, archaeologists, and others assembled by billionaire Charles Bishop Weyland for an expedition near Antarctica after discovering a mysterious heat signal. Hoping to claim the find for himself, Weyland and the group discover a pyramid, below the surface of a whaling station. Hieroglyphics and sculptures reveal that the pyramid is a hunting ground for Predators who kill Aliens as a rite of passage. The humans are caught in the middle of a battle between the two species and attempt to prevent the Aliens reaching the surface.
