20th Century Fox has been scrambling the change the narrative behind Shane Black’s The Predator after a mostly negative reaction to the film’s first trailer. After a recent TV spot sent everyone into orgasm, they’ve assembled and released a brand new trailer that’s nothing short of spectacular. I am sold.
The new footage is extraordinarily spoiler heavy, but I guess it was necessary to get many of us on board. The sequel appears to harken back to the first Predator, in which a military group is sent deep into a jungle to investigate a crash. Predator things happen before this interesting nugget of information is dropped… “Mexico”. We’re then transported to a facility in which a Predator is strapped down to a table and being experimented on. Yes, I believe The Predator is a take on the Area 51 crash in New Mexico! The trailer reveals what we’ve already known: the black ops create the “Ultimate Predator”, which is massive. There’s brand new footage of the alien beating the crap out of a “normal” Predator.
I am absolutely in love with everything in this trailer. What do you guys think?
“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 plays the son of Gary Busey’s Predator 2 character.
