Predator Trailer

"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:

Operation Chromite

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.

    If it bleeds we can kill it....classic line. Has anyone seen Predator, the Musical on Youtube? That's the refrain: "If it bleeds we can kill it"....hilarious....go check it out.
  • Maybe te best Arnie movie ever, but that's a questionable because terminator 2 is also a classic. Nope, i choose this one...

    One of those trashiest movies with trashiest actors making its trashy history ...
    • There is zero trashy about it. John McTiernan is a legend. Fuck off.

        Sacred ground, huh? Sorry guys, didn't mean to hurt anybody. But I remember that film when it came to cinema for the first time and it was hilariously funny exercise in trash. At that time, I didn't think it will be anything special for a film history and I considered to be forgetful, but it definitely made its own history. Today, if that's any consolation, I see it as a trashy edition of bygone time, but with the taste of some genuine nostalgia ... One more time, I apologize for hurt feelings ...

    Why on earth would they do a 2k restoration and not a 4k?
