The Predator franchise has been divisive and fans have been eagerly waiting for a sequel that will do the original justice. With the new trailer for The Predator just being released, it looks like fans will have to wait a while longer or maybe just re-watch the Arnold Schwarzenegger original.
The new film puts the alien hunters in the cross hairs of a new adventure, this time on earth. 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 premise alone seems outlandish and it looks like Black has completely ignored all the films that followed the original Predator. So in a way, this is the direct sequel to that film, which he incidentally starred in. But we’ll reserve judgement all the same when The Predator arrives in cinemas in September this year.
The Predator stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski.
