RED BAND TRAILER WARNING
The second trailer for The Predator is a marked improvement over the jokey tone of the first look we had at the film (click here). While the Predator is an extremely cool creature, none of the the “classic” films are actually, what’s the word, good. It has a great design and a great concept, but neither of the first two solo Predator films or the Aliens vs. Predator films actually was the kind of great science fiction/horror film the character deserves. The second trailer definitely has more of a horror vibe than the first. Shane Black has made films I really love (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) and films I really did not love (Iron Man 3), so we’ll have to see how the film is received in three months. The Predator will star Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay and Olivia Munn. The Predator will open in theaters September 14, 2018.
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.

I’m sorry, that’s too easy a shot, but I’m not going to pull punches: this is a hot pot of mess. The warning signs were there. Production delays; release date kicked back six months; so-so trailers and no clear indication what the movie was really about, but it was Brad Bird! Iron Giant! Incredibles! Mission Impossible 4! He was going to pull it out! I’m sorry. I really wanted to like this and I still love Brad Bird, but this is a disaster and he co-wrote and directed it so there’s nowhere else to lay blame. This is Brad Bird’s first bad film. Continue reading Movie Review: Tomorrowland (2015) *Brad Bird Lays An Egg*

Well you’ll have to watch the trailer, won’t you? Don’t make me do all the work, people.
