Of all the new shows streaming this month, this one has gotten our attention. The Predator prequel, Prey will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar starting 5 August 2022.
The latest in the Predator franchise, this new tale goes back to basics with a story that pre-date every film in the series thus far. When it first premiered in 1987, Predator was a non-stop action packed adventure that pitted a team of soldiers against a mysterious alien warrior.
Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, the film kicked off a sequel in the early 90s, this time with Danny Glover. Subsequent films were made, including a pair of crossover films with the Alien franchise but none measured up to the success of the original. Prey, may buck that trend.
Premiering on this August, exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar, Prey is set during the Comanche Nation 300 years ago. The story is centred around a young woman, Naru, who is a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to prove herself a worthy hunter.
The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien Predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
Amber Midthunder leads this new Predator tale. The film also stars Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush, Julian Black Antelope, Dane DiLiegro.
