So “Aliens Vs. Predator : Requiem” didn't exactly set the box office on fire – like most assumed it would; seems 'word of mouth' might've played a part in that – but that doesn't mean the prospects of seeing another tag-team isn't still a strong possibility.
One half of the film's directing team, Colin Strause, posted the following in the IMDB forums :
We did over 15 million internationally (and it hasn't even opened everywhere yet), which means in just a few days we've already made more than our total budget was. I admit I wish it did better in the US, but these numbers are nothing to feel bad about.
The flick, which Strause co-directed alongside brother Greg, grossed an estimated $10 million from 2,611 runs for a cume of $26.9 million in the sequel's first six days. It made almost $500,000 more than “Alien vs Predator: Requiem'', which made $1,113,225 on Boxing Day. What has essentially happened over the world is that the film started off strong but numbers dropped significantly as the week progressed.
So will we see another “Aliens Vs. Predator” film? It's, of course, too early to say... but think it's pretty safe to say we'll at least see the characters return in some form or another – hopefully in stand-alone “Alien” and “Predator” movies.
