Expansions on this massive world between the Alien and Predator brands came in the form of comic books and computer games, eventually leading to the start of a film series with Alien vs Predator in 2004 and Aliens vs Predator: Requiem in 2007. Based on or inspired by the movie, the series has produced a slew of comic books, novels, video games, and other items.
