Charles Weyland leads an archaeological expedition in the Antarctic. Weyland believes to have discovered the ruins of an ancient pyramid temple buried under the ice. Once inside, the team finds the remains of humans with holes in the rib cage, suggesting that the possibility of the temple being uninhabited is very unlikely. To make matters worse, five teenage Predators are coming to the temple to perform a coming-of-age ritual that involves fighting to the death with the aliens. Soon, it becomes clear that only one species is getting out alive.

Paul W.S. Anderson
