The German movie magazine Widescreen recently unveiled their newest cover photo for an upcoming issue. According to a few sites (GeekTyrant, Bloody-Disgusting) seen on the front is the "classic" Predator costume worn my FX actor Derek Mears in Robert Rodriguez's Predators reboot. As far as we know, and although we've seen the trailer, this is our first official look at the Predators outfit that will be seen in the new movie (presumably just one of many). I don't have any problems with the look (it's just beefier, more metallic), but I'm not a die-hard fanboy, so I have nothing to nitpick. So just check it out and let us know what you think?

Predators is being directed by Nimród Antal, of Kontroll, Vacancy, and Armored previously. The screenplay was co-written by newcomers Michael Finch and Alex Litvak and is based on early draft written years ago by producer Robert Rodriguez, who also worked with them on the script. This is a reboot of the Predator series created by Jim & John Thomas and directed by John McTiernan in 1987. We're not sure what the actual plot is, but all we need to know is that it's about a bunch of badass elite warriors who fight a bunch of predators out in the jungle. 20th Century Fox is bringing Predators to theaters worldwide on July 7th this summer.
