Beyond Awesome

This ad campaign in New Zealand for Sky TV’s Alien vs. Predator night is simply too too cool.

Aliens versus Predator

Too bad the movies were so powerfully awful. Other images of these two enemies squaring off can be found at Super Punch.

Tip o’ the Nostromo to io9.

    *laughing*

    Playing pool?

  2. Oh man, the alien should totally call the predator out for not having both feet flat on the ground.

    Next he’ll be using a bridge.

    Not being an SF fan and all, I thought that this title would have been more appropriate for the Saturn-Satellites transit image.

    DAMN, these are absolutely amazing pictures. I love the one where they play that…ball…pole… tennis…thing.

    The picture with AvP over cheesboard is… failed? Blacks do not move first usually… unless they’re xenomorphs…

    Or unless you’re playing reverse suicide chess.

    I can’t tell if the Predator is using his laser sighting. Then again, the xenomorph gets an advantage in not needing to see at all. Hm.

  8. Davidlpf

    I wonder why they are not playing secret agent laser chess.

  9. TheBlackCat

    @ Jason: Preds need their helmet (usually) for laser sighting, so no.

  10. I’d like to see them in a pillow fight.

    I don’t know… AvP:R was the better of the two & was actually fairly bold in killing off a lot of “demographics that you usually don’t kill off” in a horror film. At least for a mainstream film.

    the alien should totally call the predator out for not having both feet flat on the ground.

    What in the world whyfor? When gentlemen plays one foot contact, say a toe tip, suffice. The world rules states:

    “3.13 FOOT ON FLOOR

    Player must have at least one foot in contact with the floor at the moment the cue tip contacts the cue ball, or the shot is a foul. Foot attire must be normal in regard to size, shape and manner in which it is worn.”

    Oh, maybe you are pointing out that these are no gentlemen.

    Hmmm,,,bipedal hominids, with large brain cases,,,is this meant to imply that monsters are merely variations on humans?

    I remember the Blob,,,now, THAT was one scary monster.

  14. Player must have at least one foot in contact with the floor at the moment the cue tip contacts the cue ball, or the shot is a foul.

    Well in that case, I was lied to about the rules. -(
