It's a picture none of us ever thought we'd see: Arnold Schwarzenegger shaking hands with his long-time nemesis, the titular alien from the 1987 film 'Predator'.

The amazing photo was taken at the Stan Winston School of Character Arts and it has since become an online hit, having appeared on tech sites, movie blogs and popular sharing sites reddit and buzzfeed.

The event took place to remember the school's namesake, Stan Winston, who was responsible for the iconic designs of Predator, the Terminator (which also starred the Austrian Oak) and the Alien Queen in 'Aliens'.

Stan Winston, who died in 2008, was also responsible for bringing the CGI dinosaurs of 'Jurassic Park' to life on the big screen.

Arnie makes his big screen return in this summer's 'The Expendables 2' alongside Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis before moving on to a number of projects including, potentially, a sequel to 'Twins' with Danny DeVito.
