Predator Sequel

"Here we go again, bro." Whoa! Where did this come from? No release date or any solid confirmation on filming, yet the first poster is now out. An early teaser poster for the upcoming Predator movie has been unveiled on the official Predator Facebook page (found via SlashFilm). According to early details, this film is actually a direct sequel to the original 1987 sci-fi feature starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The poster only says "You'll never see him coming" and lists the title as The Predator, which perhaps means we'll only see one Predator this time around again. I'm definitely curious to know more about this. Check this out in full.

Predator - Shane Black - Teaser Poster

We last wrote about this movie in 2014, without any updates since then, only confirming that Shane Black was writing the treatment and directing the movie (his follow-up to The Nice Guys and Iron Man 3) but not writing the script by himself. Instead, he's working with Fred Dekker (who co-wrote The Monster Squad and directed Night of the Creeps) to write this sequel. Quotes from Black at the time stated that it would be an "inventive sequel" connecting back to the original 1987 movie. "Why start over, when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine?” No other details about it have been revealed yet and it hasn't started filming either.

  • I like the quote on the poster coz it's also the something the Mandarin says in Iron Man 3.

    I like that they're not starting over. The poster is, well, what it is.

    "Instead, he's working with Fred Dekker (who co-wrote The Monster Squad and directed Night of the Creeps) to write this sequel" that instills much confidence. I'm genuinely excited for this, Shane Black belongs to predator. The Predator is a great baddie and hopefully this is a straight up Tough Human vs Tough Predator no holds barred. Wonder who's gonna star in it. i'd personally love to see Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, or Timothy Olyphant lead the film.

      "A great baddie" Fuck that, The Predator is one of the greatest movie monsters of all time.

          You deleted a post with a very funny, if not a bit rude, line, Had to comment, can you imagine if that line were to be put into a movie these days, the outrage it would cause?
          • Xerxexx
            its really gone!? What the hell Billington!? I love that line, its fantastic.
          • Higgens
            Oo not a delete but a censoring!!!
          • Xerxexx
            it was posted!
      • Monster. I don't know. I think the Alien takes that crown.
        • Higgens
          I did say one of the greatest, and Alien is certainly up there. Personally I like the Predator mythos more. But as far as pop culture goes Alien is certainly higher up. And I mean like top 5. Honestly for movie monsters who got their start on screen not in books, Id say you Have Godzilla, Alien, Predator all sharing the top spot of #1 and then there are like 20 empty spaces because thats just how bad ass those 3 are.
          • Yep. I just never saw the Predator as a 'monster'. More of some sort of Alien hunter. But yeah top 5 for sure.
          • Higgens
            Oh I see what you mean by your other post, and can see what you are saying.
          • Dominic
            no they are definitely "monsters " of a sort .. as they only use the Alien creature to spice up their hunts , not track and kill them directly "Requiem" the ship crashed on earth , and that is what brought them . Not so much chasing the Alien , but preventing its spread when it wasn't a legal "hunt" . As they Set Up Whelan's crew for , in AvP . C'mon ..." we kidnap beings of all sorts , and we throw them into a pit , of sorts , and practice killing using them " .. That ISN"T Monstrous ?? . Trying to be the Best Killer Ever ? but they have a weird sense of Honor , so they're cool ....
    • Scopedog
      And don't forget--Black also played Hawkins in the original. So he's got a very strong connection to the original.
      • Xerxexx
        Oh I definitely remember! I remember the great debates about Billy being merked off screen. The Predator wanted Dutch from the get go. Billy wasn't worthy.
        • Higgens
          The Predator certainly wanted Dutch, he was the most prime Prey...a little to prime.
        • Akirakorn
          Wow, I never knew it was THAT Shane Black. I feel so lame. MINOR SPOILER AHEAD... Although, I remember they did show Billy getting merked, just not the actual fight. My guess is didn't get the budget for the effects on that one. Plus I'm sure the predator wanted to fight Billy, he knew Billy noticed him lurking in the trees. SPOILER -> Billy was worthy, he impaled him on his forearm blades. Billy tossed his gun and whipped out his knife, challenging the predator, so he obliged. If he wasn't worthy he would've just shot Billy.
          • Xerxexx
            I got the impression that the Predator gutted him while he was cloaked. So maybe he was worthy of two blades in the chest but not worthy of a face to face encounter.
      • Higgens
        Her pussy is as big as a house!
        • Scopedog
          Yeah, and you have to deal with the echo...but Billy did figure it out later....:)
          • Xerxexx
            dat scream tho!
  • They better not screw it up, predator is a damn classic...
    • Scopedog
      Considering that Shane Black was also in the original Predator...well, yeah, I hope that they don't screw this up, but the chances may be slim on that. Of course, being that it's Shane Black, I wonder if the film will be set during Christmas...:)
      • It will never be better as the original but i settle for just as good. But that i don't see happening. It's just such a badass movie, everything works. The casting, the location and myth behind it. One of my favorites ever. They should place it 200 years in the future and per accident stumble on there home planet, but than of course better equipped with weapons. It would be awesome and of course use a new bodybuilder like Arnie...
        • Higgens
          I like your pitch. Instead of home planet though maybe a mother ship, and the humans find it, and THEY hunt the Predators, Have some ship v ship stalking, a small heist bit where the humans secretly board the mother ship, and lets say during the escape the humans ship is hit and lands on a nearby planet and thats the set up for like a 5v5 finale.
      • This kinda blew my mind. Shane B is the same dude with the dorky glasses in the original P? Crazy.
        • Scopedog
          Yep, that was Shane as Hawkins!
    • son_et_lumiere
      it is a classic, no argument there. a description i once read of Predator was that it was the acceptable face of dumb action movies. i think that's a bit off - yes, some of it is silly and over the top, but it's tight and focused (as you'd expect from McTiernan), has only a few characters and doesn't get loaded down with distractions, unlike everything that came afterward. i thought the same as your post above when 'Predators' came out. i saw it, could barely remember it a few weeks later, then just went back to watching the original. it's a *lot* to live up to.
  • Higgens
    I refuse to get excited for this. The original is a fucking classic, a pinnacle in hyper machoism 80s movies. Every movie since is a stain on the progenitors legacy.
    • son_et_lumiere
      ever seen the extras on the dvd/blu? the stars talk about how they were all sneaking off to the gym to do extra sessions so they'd be bigger than the day before, Apollo Creed and The Terminator trying to out-do each other on the weights! hyper macho indeed.
      • Higgens
        Yeh, one of a very few movies I watched the extras on. Arnold was a beast!
        • Yep and i loved how everyone has a cigar in their mouth immediately after a take. 😉
  • Payne by name
    In Shane's hands, given his talent and his connection with the original, I am really looking forward to seeing this. The original is still a wonderful, balls to the wall action film and it really demands some decent writing, direction and budget spent on it.
    • Scopedog
      Agree on all counts.
  • Bill
    Considering it's always a different Predator, you don't need a reboot or anything, just a different "event". I'm still waiting for a good Alien vs Predator... my god it nearly writes itself how can they blow that!?
    • Higgens
      Right? I personally want it to be an earth thats been all but wiped out by Aliens and Predators coming in to help earth because humans have shown a good ability at fighting Aliens and they have broken out in a bad way across the galaxy. A good one shot that could lead to more if they do it right.
  • steve
    Ugh man, I was hoping it was a sequel to Predators. I actually highly enjoyed that film. Predator 2 was bad and the AVP movies were trash.
    • ErrorSapiens
      Your argument?
      • Sounds like he just hoped it would be a sequel to the previous Predator movie we all got (and some enjoyed, including myself)
    • bumboclot
      Yeah I didn't hate that previous Predator movie either but I'm totally cool with having a new non-Brody reboot. One movie with him was enough.
    Damn!! I didn't know this was happening or maybe I just forgot. This franchise has been wrung one too many times, but I am always pumped for another installment. I think the monster is too cool not to be excited for.
  • capitandelespacio
    "You'll never see him coming" Sounds like the porn parody.
  • RAW_D
    I'm sure Deadpool will have a cameo.
  • grimjob
    The first one is in my top 5. Shane Black has my trust.
  • Higgens
    HAHA there it is!
    • Xerxexx
      I know!
  • I really did not enjoy the last movie much. Adrian Brody was so so terrible in it, IMO. His hardcore character came across so fake. Not saying he isn't a fine actor but he was miscast IMO.
    • grimjob
      That was my gripe too. I liked it quite a bit actually, just couldn't buy his tough guy act.
  • Christopher Logan
    I want Arnold in a small role as the guy who briefs a new team on what to expect and how he took one down the first time. I need to hear "if it bleeds, we can kill it". But he stays home, Grandpa needs to sit this one out. He should have played Fishburn's character in Predators... that would have been great. But I swear if this movie takes place during freaking Christmas, I'm skipping it. Seriously, look it up.
    • Xerxexx
      I wanna hear Sexual Tyrannosaur.
      • U can, watch the original = D
        • Xerxexx
          Oh I always watch the original. picking up the blu-ray this weekend.
  • Trey
    If its not rated R...expect it to be like the last few iterations.....garbage
    • I rather liked Predators quite a lot
      • Higgens
        It was a collection of cool ideas, executed poorly. With a very weak lead.
        • grimjob
          I'll never understand that casting choice.
          • Higgens
            Like who thought a gritty voice Brody was going to be a suitable Arnold analogue? Sure he put on some muscle, but he is so meek looking.
          • grimjob
            That damn nose. Its distracting.
        • Rj Kietchen
          Brody was entirely believable, and I found that unbelievable! If you are or have ever been Special Forces like me you know how exactly he fits the bill and build of a SF operative.
  • even tho the poster design is one of the ongoing ripoffs from the Social Network, I kinda like the work that was put into it. Makes it look like it was raining
  • Higgens
    Looking at the poster, I like the more simple looking Predator. Looks very similar to the Jungle Hunter.
  • gman
    can't wait its a shame at the time of the original that they never made a prequel with arnie's group in predator they always spoke about past missions "do you remember Afghanistan" would have made a great action flick
    • grimjob
      Always wanted that too.
  • Thanks i will look it up, interesting!
  • Panzerknecker
    Man, that is a bad poster. Damn.
    • CyraNOSE
      How is that a bad poster? Here we go again, bunch of nerds online bitchin about everything!
      • Panzerknecker
        It's cluttered to the point of being almost unreadable. That is bad.
  • OfficialJab
    Why do studios use taglines/slogans like this? It's not just uncreative, but almost aggressively uncreative.
    • grimjob
      Definitely lazy.
  • Cyberdine
    How many times must they butcher Predator?!
    • bumboclot
      Until they stop hunting us for sport!
  • Mark Brackney
    ...please tell me I'm not the only one who read the poster in Kingsley's Mandarin's voice...
    • Rockmaninoff Gunlok
      I actually did too. God, pop culture is weird these days. . .
