See the Trailer for Newly Restored French Re-Release of 'Predator'
"There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man." Who has time to bleed when there's a predator lurking around? Everything is getting re-released these days! Why not? France is preparing for a re-release coming up this August of a newly restored (apparently only in 2K, not full 4K though) version of John McTiernan's original sci-fi action film Predator. Originally released in 1987, Predator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Elpidia Carrillo, Bill Duke, Jesse Ventura, Sonny Landham and Richard Chaves. Years after release it has become known as one of the best action movies made, and this trailer lives up to that claim with plenty of explosions. Of course this will make you want to see it again.
Here's the new restored French re-release trailer (+ poster) for John McTiernan's Predator, from Vimeo:
A team of commandos on a mission in a Central American jungle find themselves hunted by an extra-terrestrial warrior. The original Predator movie was directed by John McTiernan (who later went on to direct Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, Medicine Man, Last Action Hero, Die Hard 3, The 13th Warrior, The Thomas Crown Affair and Rollerball) from a screenplay by Jim Thomas & John Thomas. The film was released in the summer on June 12th, 1987, and ended up #1 at the US box office on its opening weekend, making $12 million. It features creature effects devised by Stan Winston, and had a modest budget of $15 million. The new 2K restoration of Predator opens in France starting August 17th, but not in the US.
