Alien versus Predator‘s DVD package proudly proclaims on its front, “With an Alternate Beginning never shown in theaters!”
Don’t get excited. The alternate beginning is a roughly one-minute long pre-credits teaser that shows what happened the last time the Predators visited their Antarctic hunting grounds.
I thought it would have been in the deleted scenes, but it’s actually part of the DVD’s extended cut. Indeed, the alternate beginning is the only thing extended about the extended cut. I hoped for the rumored R-rated cut of the film, and I imagine that we may well see that at some point down the line.
