‘The Predator’ Goes On the Hunt at CinemaCon With First Footage; “Lots of Bloody Action”



Not long after the synopsis was revealed, 20th Century Fox just debuted the first footage from Shane Black’s The Predator at CinemaCon, which we expect will arrive online at a later date. What we’re hearing is sounding pretty interesting so far!

@KingPatel7 tweeted from CinemaCon, “Shane Black’s THE PREDATOR looks great! Lots of bloody action, the hunters are evolving.”

@EricVespe digs a bit deeper into precisely what was shown, tweeting “Saw some footage from The Predator. Very much setting up the new characters, but there was some Predator action. Saw a glimpse of a big glaive-looking weapon and a Predator holding up a dude. Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s character work was on full display already. There was a cool shot of the Predator laser dots on Jacob Tremblay. Olivia Munn sees this, pushes him behind her and dots move to her.”

@Joblocom also chimed in, “Just saw The Predator teaser. Lots of set-up and mystery surrounding a mission that Boyd Holbrook’s character was on where he encountered an “alien”. We see a ship crash land on Earth and various shots of the Predator in various places. We see Holbrook picking up a Predator mask, Jacob Tremblay messing around with a Predator gauntlet and Olivia Munn talking about how The Predator is evolving from planet to planet. Lots of action, blood, explosions and guns.”

Via The Wrap, “In a new trailer that screened at Fox’s CinemaCon presentation, we see Rory (Jacob Tremblay), the son of a special forces soldier, open a box and discover a piece of technology belonging to the Predators. Thrilled by how cool it is, he plays with it like a toy spaceship, not knowing that he’s remotely piloting an actual ship full of Predators to a crash landing on Earth.”

We then see the boy’s father, Quinn McKenna, being interrogated after returning to his base as the only survivor of a team of Marines called in to investigate the crash landing. In between seeing the film’s cast do battle with the new Predators — who have upgraded with DNA of other species they conquered — Quinn responds to question with terse answers and sarcasm, leading some to wonder if Quinn is still on the side of the humans.

Here’s the full synopsis from Fox…

“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.”

Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Edward James Olmos, Alfie Allen and Yvonne Strahovski star. Jake Busey is playing the son of Gary Busey’s Predator 2 character.

The Predator returns on September 14, 2018.
