Can't be Van Damme in the Predator suit then

Can't be Van Damme in the Predator suit then

Let’s admit it, now that “Freddy vs. Jason” has been seen, admired and hurriedly forgot, there’s only one more team-up fretfully awaited [yes kids, ‘The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ vs. ‘Leprechaun’] and that’s Fox’s “Aliens vs. Predator”. Apparently the teaser trailer is set to be attached to all prints of the forthcoming “Alien – Directors Cut” at Cinemas. Well if that’s true, they better get cut and pasting, because according to a scooper for Dark Horizons, the trailer was only shot last week.


Says the anonymous scooper, “"Last Thurs (9/11), there was a promo shoot for the teaser trailer or teaser poster(s) for the new Aliens vs. Predator movie. Now, I don’t know when it will be released but what I saw was totally cool. Here’s what I saw: A caucasian male, 6"2, in complete Predator suit/make-up getting ready for some still shots. When I saw him, he wasn’t wearing the helmet but the costume pretty much was reminiscent of the last two Predator films. The only difference was that the mask (or helmet) looked more metallic than I remember it being (sorry to say it, but, it reminded me of the metallic finish on the Jason mask in Jason X, when he is turned into the SUPER JASON! BUT cooler). Anyway, the suit was only air-brushed from the waist down, which leads me to believe that the shoot was for a teaser poster. But otherwise, the tendrils of "hair" on the predator were AMAZING. I wasn’t ballsy enough to see up close but the crew was shooting the Predator first in "attack" position, perfect for a sneak peak poster. Once all photography/ filming(?) was complete, the crew dumped a bucket full of see-through green slime/goo on him and took more pictures. This was either meant to be predator blood, or alien blood–couldn’t tell, too far away. Later in the day, it was the aliens turn. What I CAN tell you (about this specific Alien shoot) is that it was NOT the Queen Alien; rather a more human-like alien who walked on two feet. It looked amazing because he was walking like PUMPKINHEAD (remember that one?) and he too–a middle aged geeky caucasian dude)–was not wearing his helmet. (The alien head itself is very faithful to the drone aliens in the "Alien" videogames and the ones in Alien 3, with the elongated head going back, behind the body, round in shape; NOT the flared out helmet of the Queen. I found it odd though that the alien had NO tail. It made me wonder if they would add it later in post, or if it was part of the story, where it gets cut off. Here too, pictures of it were taken in "attack" position, kneeling down w/head intact. This was by far the most exciting part of the day, although the Predator was "gargantuan" in size compared to the Alien".
