No matter how many bad reviews the films get, or the overwhelming cries of 'blasphemy!' from fans of the original series, it seems like nothing is going to stop Fox from churning out another sequel in the sci-fi series. According to sources for Shock till You Drop, talk of another film in the AVP franchise has already begun to surface at 20th Century Fox -- and Shock's sources say that it is a "certainty."
After AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem was released last Christmas, Fox hadn't made any promises about the franchise. According to the film's directors, the studio was going to take a 'wait and see' approach. Cut to three months later, and Fox seems to be a little surer that another installment is a sure thing. There is no word on whether Colin and Greg Strause would return to direct again, or whether Fox is going to run with the Strause's idea of taking the story back into space. Considering their installment managed to pull in $128.8 million internationally, I think Fox might want to take their advice. Nothing is official yet, so stay tuned to Cinematical for any news that comes our way.
So what do you think? Is the AVP franchise worth keeping alive? Or more importantly, will the fans keep coming back no matter how bad the movies are?
