Anderson, Alien vs. Predator follows billionaire Charles Bishop Weyland Lance Henriksen and his team of drillers, scientists, and archaeologists, to an obscure pyramid site in Antarctica.
Among the icy ruins, allegedly, lies the proof of an empire predating humankind.

Even more horrifying is the evidence suggesting that the aliens may still exist.
Indeed, there are aliens below the pyramids, but an equal threat looms above: three Predators, all on the verge of manhood, are engaged in a gruesome rite of passage -- every hundred years, young Predators must travel to Earth and take on a hunting ritual in order to complete the transition to adulthood or die in the process.
