The ending to Shane Black’s The Predator was weird, wacky, and completely out of left field, introducing a weapon that could change the game in possible sequels.

But what if the new killer wasn’t a thing, but a person? From another movie universe? Apparently, The Predator shot two alternate endings that would’ve brought Alien back into the Predator family, with Ellen Ripley or Newt stepping in as the “Predator Killer.”

Not heroine. Hero, period. While it's rad that Ellen Ripley happens to be a woman, that doesn't at all impact her level of badarsery -- though it does inform her character in ways that make her much more interesting than virtually any other cinematic hero. She's complicated, she feels real, and I have total confidence the Alien movies would not have become classics without her.
