Way back in 1979, terrified cinema-goers learned that in space, no one can hear you scream...the Alien had arrived. Then, in 1987, Arnold Schwarzenegger came up against "one ugly mother******": the Predator. But ever since the Predator first stepped out of the jungle, sci-fi fans have wanted to see just one thing: Alien vs Predator, fighting it out on the big screen. Now, with the blockbuster movie AVP: Alien vs Predator, the wait is finally over! This is the essential companion to the film, written by the chief creature effects supervisors on the movie. Gillis and Woodruff's unique perspective makes this one of the most fascinating "making of" books ever published, providing an in-depth look at how the Aliens and Predators were created. Packed with over 400 exclusive photos!
Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr are the co-founders of ADI: Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. Having provided the Alien Creature effects for both Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection (Gillis and Woodruff also worked for Stan Winston on Aliens), ADI were asked to handle the Creature Effects for AVP. Woodruff also suited up again to resume his role as chief Alien performer for the new movie.
