Alien vs. Predator is the 2004 science fiction film that brought together two of the most popular science fiction movie characters of all time: the Alien from the Alien movie franchise and the Predator from the Predator movie franchise (which were first paired in several Dark Horse Comics graphic novels). The film was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and the cast included Sanaa Lathan, Colin Salmon and Lance Henriksen, who portrays the CEO of the company that would eventually create the android Bishop in the film Aliens. A sequel, Alien vs. Predator: Requiem, was released in 2007.

Rousseau only manages to fire off one shot with her Beretta 84FS "Cheetah" before she is latched onto by a face hugger.
IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII
The Weyland mercenaries use Desert Eagle Mark VIIs fitted with green laser sights as their sidearms, determined to be chambered in .44 Magnum based on their muzzle diameters. This weapon is most notably seen when Alexa Woods (Sanaa Lathan) uses it to kill Sebastian (Raoul Bova) after he is impregnated by a facehugger.
Desert Eagle MK VII w/ nickel finish - .357 Magnum
Graeme Miller (Ewen Bremner
) reaches for the IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII in Mark Verheiden's (Tommy Flanagan
) shoulder holster as a facehugger climbs from its egg.
Graeme fires the IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII at the facehugger. Note how the muzzle diameter is clearly .44 Magnum. Also worth noting is that the weapon fires a total of 12 rounds, when the maximum capacity is eight plus one.

Rifles / Carbines
Heckler & Koch G36C
Most of the Weyland mercenaries use Heckler & Koch G36Cs that have been fitted with regular G36E carrying handles, Surefire tactical lights, and like the Desert Eagles, they too are fitted with lime green laser sights.
Screen-used Heckler & Koch G36C from Alien vs. Predator
Weyland mercenary Maxwell Stafford (Colin Salmon
) preps his Heckler & Koch G36C. Note that the magazine is almost empty despite the fact the weapon has not yet been used.
Joe Connors (Jospeh Rye), one of the Weyland mercenaries, fires his Heckler & Koch G36C at a Predator.
Bass (Pavel Bezdek) fires his Heckler & Koch G36C at a Predator. Note his finger position, keeping them clear of the returning bolt, sign of military weapons training.
Weyland mercenary Mark Verheiden (Tommy Flanagan
) reloads his Heckler & Koch G36C after firing it at a Predator. The character's name is a homage to the original writer of the comic book series.
One of the mercenaries' G36Cs is found after he is captured by an Alien, covered in slime. That stuff can't be good for the weapon.
SPSh Flare Pistol
Alexa Woods (Sanaa Lathan) fires flares into the air to light the whaling station and the pyramid using a SPSh Flare Pistol (likely a Czech clone).
