Arnold Schwarzenegger recently said that he’d have no problems returning to either the Terminator franchise or the realm of superhero movies, but there’s one project that he doesn’t plan on getting involved with – Shane Black’s The Predator.
The short reason why Schwarzenegger is not planning on returning to the Predator franchise is because he wasn’t exactly sold on the concept. His wording suggests that it mostly has to do with whatever role his character would have played, although it’s not clear if he would have reprised his role as Major Alan “Dutch” Schafer or if he’d be playing a new character altogether.
Nick Schager: My all-time favorite film of yours is Predator, and Shane Black is now rebooting the franchise with The Predator. Are you involved with it in any way?
Arnold Schwarzenegger: They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered. So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.
Schwarzenegger was quick to clarify that he wasn’t interested in his role and not so much the movie itself. Considering that Predator fans have been rather on-the-fence about the project, and the nature of the news can be interpreted either way, it seems like Fox is going to have to figure out the right way to market this movie to win everyone over.

The Alien Franchise has become a massive success ever since the first film was released back in 1979. A small but intimate film that changed horror and sci-fi cinema. The Alien known as the Xenomorph has become a part of the cultural zeitgeist with as much popularity as the greatest horror and sci-fi characters. The Xenomorphs in these films are almost more popular than the films themselves so much so that they have been a part of crossovers with the Predator series as well. With the release of the trailer to Alien: Covenant it is the perfect time to look back at this franchise and see which ones remain the best out of all of them.
This list will not include the Alien Vs. Predator films seeing as they are their own separate crossover series. So without further ado here is are the Alien Films Ranked From Worst To Best!
