Lists and trivia about the Alien and Predator series

Predator Timeline



Here is the Predator timeline consisting of the events of Predator, Predator 2, Predators, Alien vs Predator, Aliens vs Predator: Requiem and The Predator. This is a simple timeline, mostly taking into account the most important events from the movie or events referenced in the Predator movies. It does not contain any books or games. I have decided to keep the Alien and Predator timelines separate, although they share the Alien vs. Predator parts. If you are interested, check out the Alien Timeline.
