The Predator

The Predator Trailer #1 (2018) *It’s Hunting Season Again!*

The Predator may be the coolest science fiction creation that has never actually had a good movie (no not even the original).  September (hey something is opening in September!) will see the third solo film for the hunting aliens after they spent their last two outings in wasted opportunities crossing them over with Aliens.  The film is directed by Iron Man 3’s Shane Black and will star Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay and Olivia Munn.  For more from Coming Soon read below.

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

The Predator cast includes Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski.

Black, who wrote the script with his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker, has confirmed that the film remains in the continuity of the first two movies and isn’t a full reboot of the series. He said there is a reference in the script as to why the film has a singular title, and that the film will carry an R rating.

The original Predator was directed by John McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a United States special forces team that comes under attack from an alien entity that prizes the thrill of the hunt above all else. It was followed by a direct sequel, Predator 2, in 1990 before crossing over with Fox’s Alien franchise for two additional sequels, Alien vs. Predator and AvP: Requiem. In 2010, Nimrod Antal helmed a reboot with a new feature, Predators

  1. I kind of liked the original Predator movie but it wasn’t amazing. The predator as a creature certainly carried the film more than the script or plot. It would be nice to see a decent film featuring it and I guess we’ll find out if this newest entry will end up delivering.

  2. Man. I don’t even remember the first film very well, except that the premise, a thing hunting humans and stringing up the corpses like trophies, was highly effective.

    I missed all the others. I have no interest in this one. Except, on a purely academic level…

    So the Predators have now augmented themselves with DNA from other species? It’s not enough that thier hyper-advanced race is hunting us for sport? And what discernible difference is the DNA thing going to make to the viewing experience?

    1. I take it back, maybe they’re going to morph into various animals. This is Reboot Country, and everything, no matter how ridiculous, is on the table.
