The long-running sci-fi action franchise, Predator has finally gotten its first trailer to the much-anticipated latest entry. The first Predator film starred Arnold Schwarzenegger classic in 1987 and will hit theatres in September. The first appearance of Predator displayed a creature that prayed on the savagery of military units. This time around the famed hunter prays on another type of soldier as it looks to expand their species.
During the trailer, we see a kid playing with a mysterious artifact that seems to be alien tech he found in a box, it seems to be controlling a Predator ship heading towards Earth. Further into the trailer, an army specialist (Boyd Holbrook) is being interrogated about his exploration on a mission in the jungle and what he may have saw. It’s then, followed by a scientist played by, Olivia Munn issuing a warning about the Predators being upgraded by using various species and posing a dangerous threat to the human race. Throughout the trailer we are provided with the usual action that’s made the Predator films endearing and a few glimpses of the Predator itself was seen.
In a recent interview with Pure Grain Audio, director Shane Black spoke about his approach to tackling a movie,
The key to Predator has always been the group that goes up against the Predator. The trick is to get yourself inside the mindset of a group of men and women, mostly guys in those movies, sometimes with a female protagonist as well. Mostly in the [Alien vs. Predator movies] as well, and Predators. You wanna find a balance. It’s not so much addressing the emotions of the characters or finding the fear in the horror film as much as finding what interests me about a horror film. Figuring out why I am the audience member I am for them.
