CENTURY CITY, Calif. – America’s own backyard becomes the most brutal battlefield yet for the iconic creatures from two of the scariest film franchises ever when Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem (AVP-R) descends onto DVD and Blu-ray Disc (BD) April 15th from Fox Home Entertainment. Capturing the magic of the “Alien” and “Predator” legacies are first time directors and long-time fans of both film series, The Brothers Strause, renowned for their visual effects wizardry in such films as 300, X-Men: The Last Stand and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Picking up immediately after the events of the 2004 worldwide blockbuster Alien vs. Predator, the Predator gives birth to the crossbreed `PredAlien’ shortly before the ship crashes into a small Colorado town. Caught in between the invasion of the Aliens and a new ruthless and methodical Predator, a group of townspeople must join forces to stop the infestation before the military obliterates the town to contain the outbreak. With thrilling performances by Steven Pasquale (“Rescue Me,” “Six Feet Under”), Reiko Aylesworth (“24″) and John Ortiz (American Gangster, Miami Vice), AVP-R breeds the gritty horror roots of the original films back into the series while adding fresh, new digital effects and creature variations.

Available on both two-disc DVD and in high-definition format on Blu-ray Disc, the Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem Extreme Unrated Special Edition features more than ten minutes of never-before-seen gruesome footage added back into the movie plus is packed with five behind-the-scenes featurettes, still design galleries, directors commentary, special FX/creature creator commentary and more.

The AVP-R Extreme Unrated Special Edition will be available to own on two-disc DVD for $34.98 U.S./ $45.98 Canada and on BD for $39.98 U.S./$49.98 Canada. AVP-R will also be released as a theatrical rated and unrated single-disc version available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S./$43.48 Canada. Plus, a special DVD two-pack collection featuring both films Alien vs. Predator Unrated Collector’s Edition and AVP-R Unrated single-disc will be priced at $34.98 U.S./$45.98 Canada, along with a Blu-ray Disc two-pack priced at $69.98 U.S/$89.98 Canada.
