Set in the early 21st century on Earth, Charles Weyland, an industrialist billionaire, leads an archaeological expedition in Antarctica. Using thermal imaging satellites, Weyland believes that he has discovered the ruins of an ancient pyramid temple buried under the ice that predates the Egyptian and Aztec pyramids. Once inside, the team finds the remains of humans with holes in their rib cages and the remains of facehuggers, meaning that the possibility of the temple being uninhabited is very unlikely. To make matters worse, five teenage Predators are coming to the temple to perform a coming-of-age ritual that involves fighting to the death with the Aliens. Soon, it becomes clear that only one species is getting out alive. Twentieth Century Fox presents their two greatest franchise monsters in the ultimate death match. An explosive science fiction/action/fantasy blockbuster to end the summer with a legendary confrontation blowout!
The score for Alien vs. Predator was composed by newcomer Harald Kloser, who, earlier this summer, composed the score for The Day After Tomorrow, a film that has now earned over $500 million at the worldwide box office. Previous Alien and Predator films have featured now-classic scores by composers Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Elliot Goldenthal and Alan Silvestri. Harald Kloser now joins this elite group.
