The Predator

You'll Never See Him Coming… to Theaters in March of 2018. 20th Century Fox has confirmed a couple of release dates for two upcoming, highly anticipated sci-fi movies. First up, Ridley Scott's sorta-sequel to Prometheus, titled currently Alien: Covenant, has been shifted slightly to August 4th, 2017, more than a year away. That one will open against Blazing Samurai and Pitch Perfect 3, just a few months before Star Wars: Episode VIII. Next up, we just featured the teaser poster for Shane Black's The Predator, now we have a release date - March 2nd, 2018. That will play against the "Untitled WB Event Film" also set then, and a few weeks before Spielberg's Ready Player One opens. Should be a very exciting few years for sci-fi.

Both release dates come confirmed from the @BoxOffice account. In addition to setting these two new dates for Alien: Covenant and The Predator, Fox has removed the Gambit movie and The Mountain Between Us movie from the release schedules in 2016/2017. For the latest release dates, visit out 2016 schedule and 2017 schedule. Ridley Scott's swift progress putting together Alien: Covenant has delayed Neill Blomkamp's new version of Alien, but it sounds like it might be worth it - Katherine Waterston stars with Demian Bichir, Danny McBride, and Amy Seimetz. The new Predator is to be directed by Shane Black, from a script by Fred Dekker. We're still awaiting more details on both movies, but we've already marked them on our calendar.
