Movies In Focus will be there for The Predator because it’s written and directed by Shane Black (and the addition of Thomas Jane to the cast) but this is a pretty unexciting trailer.
20th Century Fox is going to have to work a lot harder if they want to see this thing hit big at the box office. John Mc Tiernan’s Predator is one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s best movies and Predator 2 is a so-so follow-up. The Alien Vs Predator films weren’t very good and Predators was as just alright. Goodwill and nostalgia will only get you so far.
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 starring 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 opens in September.
