Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (stylized on-screen as AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem) is a 2007 American science fiction action film directed by the Brothers Strause (Colin and Greg Strause) in their directorial debut and written by Shane Salerno. The film stars Steven Pasquale, Reiko Aylesworth, John Ortiz, Johnny Lewis, and Ariel Gade. It is a sequel to the 2004 film Alien vs. Predator and the second and latest installment in the Alien vs. Predator franchise, continuing the crossover between the Alien and Predator franchises.
Set immediately after the events of the previous film, the film begins with a Predator ship crashing into a forest outside of Gunnison, Colorado, where an Alien-Predator hybrid known as the Predalien escapes and makes its way to the nearby small town. A skilled veteran Predator is dispatched to kill the Predalien, as the townspeople try to survive the ensuing carnage.
Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem was released on December 25, 2007, in the United States. The film grossed $129 million at the worldwide box office, making it the lowest-grossing film in both the Alien and Predator franchises when accounting for inflation. The film was critically panned, with particular criticism directed towards the plot and poor lighting in the film. A sequel was planned but ultimately canceled.
