A prequel to a sequel, or a movie in a series in which none of the original
characters could appear
vs. Predator. It occurs before the original Alien
movies, yet after
Predator movies, therefore characters from either series could not have a role.
Joe:Why doesn't Danny Glover
just pop up and fuck up the Predators, and Sigourney Weaver could handle the Aliens?
Scott: Because he's old as fuck by now, and she's not even born.
Joe: Wait what? Isn't this a sequel?
Scott: Nah man, it's a fuckin' Deeker.
