Poster Review: "Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem"

For those of you who thought 'Alien: Resurrection' and the original 'Alien Vs. Predator' didn't suck enough, we now find ourselves confronted with 'Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem.' This handsome one-sheet, in all its brilliant simplicity, reaffirms what the title of the movie already tells us: that the aliens will, indeed, face down the predators. Let's start from the bottom and work our way up...

* The credits. Well, at least they haven't suckered 'Sigourney Weaver' into being in these movies yet.

* 'AVP-R.' Ever since' T2,' you're not cool if you spell out the entire title of your movie. I heard George Lucas was thinking of going with SW:EII-AotC, but chickened out.

* Whereas the previous 'AVP' movie was set in an isolated area on Earth, the picture on this poster implies that the fight will go global. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. Maybe it's just meant to imply awesomeness.

* They have a pretty hardcore tag line: "This Christmas there will be no peace on Earth." Wait a minute. Wouldn't that be a better tag line for 'Fred Claus'?
