The first film in the mini-franchise that is AVP is titled Alien vs. Predator. The sequel to it is titled Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. Simply, why did the sequel add an "s" to the Alien part? Why not add on to the Predator part? There were multiple aliens and multiple predators in the first film, so there's no reason why the first one wouldn't have that title.

    I can't say why, but the film had a working title of 'Alien Vs Predator 2' and was at one point going to be called 'Alien Vs Predator: Survival of The Fittest'. Both of which were Alien in the singular. whatculture.com/film/…
