Von Daniken concepts in Alien vs Predator

Leading from

 STILL COLLATING

a) Erich Von Daniken inspired Paul Anderson
Something that inspired Paul Anderson is the work of Erich Von Daniken, who wrote Chariots of the Gods, and a number of other books, and he talked about the similarities between Egyptian pyramids, Cambodian pyramids, Aztec Pyramids , three separate cultures that really have nothing to do with one another, that should never had seen each other, should have had no communication, but they ended up building pyramids that look surprisingly similar

b) Alien vs Predator back story
Of course, the Von Daniken answer was that aliens built the pyramids or humans built the pyramids with alien help and the story of Alien Vs Predator agrees with him.

The backbone of the story is that the movie starts five thousand years ago in Cambodia, three thousand BC and we see aliens and predators on the earth.

The idea is that the predators use the earth for their manhood rituals, and what happens is every thousand years, because predators have a very long life cycle, they drop five teenage predators at a pyramid, and they have to fight for their survival.

They fight aliens and if they survive the battle against aliens they become predator adults.

  1. 2004-07-14 – Kirk from New Zealand: In ascertaining the setting where all 3 races would meet, did you take into account any ancient mythology as using a pyramid for the setting may suggest?

    Paul WS Anderson: Well, something that’s always fascinated me is the work of Erich Von Daniken, who wrote CHARIOTS OF THE GODS and lots of other books, who talks about the similarities between Egyptian pyramids, Cambodian pyramids, Aztec pyramids, three separate cultures that really have nothing to do with one another, that should never have seen each other, should have had no communication, but they ended up building, pyramids that look surprisingly similar.
    And of course Daniken’s answer was that aliens built the pyramids, or humans built the pyramids with alien help. And, of course, we agree with him! The backbone of our story is that the movie starts five thousand years ago in Cambodia, three thousand B.C., and you see aliens and predators on the earth. And the idea is the predators use the earth for their manhood rituals, and, what happens is every thousand years, because predators have a very long life cycle, they drop, five teenage predators at a pyramid, and they have to fight for their survival. They fight aliens. And if they survive the battle against aliens they become predator adults.
