New Photos and Poster for Sandy Collora's Hunter Prey
Late last year we brought you a few new first look photos from an indie sci-fi film called Hunter Prey from director Sandy Collora. The costumes looked incredibly unique and readers seemed to be clamoring for more information. Not only have we heard that the teaser trailer will finally show up next week on io9, but we have a few brand new photos and a first look at the poster courtesy of a site called SciFiScoop.com. I really can't wait to see the teaser, as I've built up my expectations and have very high hopes. I also hope Collora has a good release plan setup for this, because I don't want to see it get lost in the mix of things.
We've added a few new photos below, and the official poster beneath them, so keep on scrolling to see all the latest images from Hunter Prey. Click any of the photos to see them in a higher resolution. "Making a movie is like being in a war. You're always fighting the budget and time, people doubting you, all kinds of stuff, but I'd have to say, most of this movie has fallen into place the way I originally envisioned it."
After shooting in Mexico last year, the film has been in post-production since, with visual effects being added. "I think people are going to be shocked at the level of GC that was achieved for such a low budget film. Everything is seamless. Natural. Unobtrusive. The CG enhances the world and the story, and is only used where we felt it necessary, and is not overbearing. It compliments the movie quite well," Collora said.
The story in Hunter Prey follows a team of special forces commandos who must recapture an escaped alien prisoner after the military transport ship carrying it crashes on a desolate and hostile planet. As this was an entirely independently financned production, it doesn't have a distributor yet, and won't likely find one until Collora starts showing it around to studios this summer. You can be certain we'll let you know the moment the trailer is online. "Like the movie itself and all the promotional artwork, the trailer has a very 70’s, old school sci-fi, organic, feel to it. I can't wait to see what people think of it." Bring it on!

All I can think of when I see any of those guys is Boba Fett.

Boba Fett: The Movie.

I can't wait for the trailer. Sounds like a good idea, though nothing too original. I like what the director has to say about the CGI though. After hearing about the low budget I was thinking the CGI that will undoubtedly have to be in this movie might not be up to par with what we've seen currently. But after hearing what the director says it's giving me second thoughts. Like you said BRING IT ON

This will either be a really good film or the cheesiest thing I've seen in a while. P.S: Probably nowhere horrific or cheesestastic than Dragonball: Evolution.
Craig on Apr 4, 2009
This looks incredibly awesome
Scott McHenry on Apr 4, 2009
lol they do remind one of Boba Fett
JimD on Apr 4, 2009
Ummm original costumes? not so much, as the guy said on Filmschoolrejects, they look like Iron Man and the Rocketeer got it on.
Jmoney on Apr 4, 2009
It's about time somebody made another man vs alien movie like the classic Enemy Mine - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089092/ The tagline on the poster makes me think this will be similar.

That's Boba Fett right?

This looks really really good!! Love the poster! vintage styles!
Conrad on Apr 4, 2009
Wow, I know it has been said but damn. Those guys look like the ugly baby of Boba Fett and the Rocketman. Still it will be nice for a good sci-fi flick to come out. It just seems that there haven't been many of those in awhile (I don't count comic or video game movies).
Eric on Apr 4, 2009
Not just unique, but INCREDIBLY unique? Oh well IRREGARDLESS of that, I have to agree with pretty much everyone who says the costumes look far from original and look a lot like Bobba Fett, Rocketeer, Iron Man, and even Motocross and SW Stromtroopers. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing this. I'm Hollywood's best wetdream! A fan who will watch ANYTHING at least once.

Boba Fett and the Rocketeer had babies
Shannon on Apr 4, 2009
if i see that one more IDIOT leaves a needless comment on the costumes likeness to Fett, well i think i just might loose my faith in humanity. god damn you guys are THICK. it's like some moron saying that every monster movie since 1954 is a godzilla knock-off.... give me a break!
Nick S. on Apr 4, 2009
Oh my freaking god! It's Boba Fett :O ...Come to think of it, King Kong and Cloverfield majorly bit off Godzilla...
one more IDIOT on Apr 4, 2009
Wow! All it would take to make #17 "loose" his faith in humanity is for some total stranger to leave a comment on the costume's likeness to Fett? When I think of all of the inhuman evil in the world, past and present, I somehow don't add taste in costumes. That said, it DOES remind me an awful lot of Bobba Fett!
Feo Amante on Apr 4, 2009
Those guys look BETTER than Boba Fett. They're more powerful looking and more proportionate. Boba Fett's helmet is cool, but it's too big for his skinny body and the rest of his costume sucks. It looks weak. Skinny guy in a thin flight suit with little tiny bits of armor. These guys look like warriors. More real. Can't wait to see this.
Don Tanz on Apr 4, 2009
word. and #s 18 and 19 can go jerk off in their Fett helmets together.
Nick S. on Apr 4, 2009
You mean the Fett helmets we got from this movie?
Feo Amante on Apr 4, 2009
haha, damn it. ....touché

Nick S. I believe everyone's reaction is based on the author of this article's claim that the costumes are unique when it is so obvious that they are not. I can only speak for myself but me making fun of the costumes has nothing to do with my comment on the movie itself. It sounds interesting and I will probably watch it when it comes out. But there is no doub that the costumes were at least "inspired by" Fett, Rocketeer, etc.
Jmoney on Apr 5, 2009
You guys need to get over this Boba fett crap. That character is almost 30 years old, had a half dozen lines in the entire trilogy, like 5 minutes of screen time, and died the stupidest death of a cool character in a movie ever. It's obvious the filmmaker was inspired by Star wars but those suits are nowhere close to a direct rip-off. Like someone else already said, I think they look better.
Vochinella on Apr 5, 2009
I like the plot although people will this it's cheesy but i love these kinds of plots,the helmets and there style looks NiCE too.
Fisherr on Apr 5, 2009
Looking good! I hope this movies works as good at it seem to be!
Paul on Apr 5, 2009
Boba Fett? I was gonna say Ultraman!
jasonmd2020 on Apr 5, 2009
Ok, Im with #26. Fett was a cool character and he was in the movies for such a short time. SO WHAT if these guys kinda look like that?!?! Isn't that a GOOD thing??? If this movie has that same "Star Wars" feel and look (OG Trilogy of course), shouldn't we all be happy??? I mean check out those stills and that poster! It has such a cool, kinda vintage feel to it! I'm a big fan of the SW trilogy and I think THIS looks great and I can't wait to see it!!!!
Pink Padawan on Apr 5, 2009
Star Wars is dead, gone and buried. Lucas will never do anything cool ever again, and hasn't since Empire. Sandy Collora is the future.
Coleman on Apr 5, 2009
My interest is piqued!! Trailer go!!!
bozoconnors on Apr 6, 2009
How can you say those costumes look unique? They look like the aftermath of a Boba Fett, Cylon(classic), Clone Trooper/Storm Trooper gangbang.
