Reiko Aylesworth vs. Alien vs. Predator
Along with being beyond thrilled to see the much-loved actress who portrayed Michelle Dessler in 24, we’re also glad to see that they’ve changed the subtitle to Requiem, from the previous “Survival of the Fittest.”
Clearly, someone at FOX did a little homework and realized that they’d gotten the evolutionary term wrong, and Alien vs. Predator: Natural Selection didn’t sound quite as hardcore. At least now we don’t have to speculate about the reproductive abilities of Aliens and Predators, though I do admit, I would pay $7 to see one of those dreadlocked creatures sitting primly in a fertility clinic and earnestly inquiring, “But, why?”
Anyway, Reiko seems to have taken on a Sigourney Weaver-esque role, with a weapon on one arm and a child in the other. I’m ready to see her kick some Alien/Predator tail. It’s a step up from the terrorists. Also on the list of leads is Rescue Me’s Steven Pasquale. Perhaps he’s Reiko’s love interest? Even better, maybe he’s the conservationist psycho that shows up in all of these movies trying to save the monsters, and she has to take him out for the good of humanity.
I know what I’m doing this Christmas.
