AVP 2: There Will Be Blood (Some Green, Some Red)
12.11.07 by REELZ
I just got back from visiting Hydraulx in Santa Monica. California where the Brothers Strause (Colin and Greg) are putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem. Unlike the previous entry by critically maligned director Paul W.S. Anderson, this AVP is strictly for mature audiences. It's rated-R and pulls no punches. Opening on Christmas Day, the movie should provide a nice xmas alternative for those who'd rather enjoy blood and guts than chestnuts on an open fire.
Reelz.com hung with the Brothers Strause today for a tour of their Hydraulix FX house where they are also currently working on Eddie Murphy's Starship Dave and Doug Liman's Jumper. Although AVPR is their first gig as directors, the duo's impressive resume of FX work also includes Titanic, both Fantastic Four Movies, X Men: The Last Stand and 300.
Besides touring the very cool looking facilities of Hydraulx (which almost look like a movie set themselves), we were treated to a sneak peek at about ten minutes of footage from AVPR. Dark, atmospheric and thrillingly terrifying, fans of the series should be pleased with the end result.
We'll have a full report from our visit coming later this week. For now, be sure to check our AVPR photo gallery for some great new pics from the film!
