Must Watch: First Full Trailer for Nimrod Antal's Predators!
20th Century Fox has debuted the first official trailer for Robert Rodriguez & Nimród Antal's Predators, the reboot of the classic action series that first hit theaters in 1987. Although we featured a rather exciting sneak peek at the movie with all kinds of behind-the-scenes footage just last week, this is the trailer you've all been waiting to see. There was a lot of concern that Rodriguez couldn't pull this off, but I definitely think he might have done just that, as this looks awesome and I'm looking forward to seeing it this summer. I love the characters, I love the jungle setting again, I love Laurence Fishburne and Adrien Brody - so bring it on!
Watch the first official trailer for Nimród Antal's Predators:
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 everywhere on July 7th this summer.

I must admit, its far better then I expected.
BoxOfficeZ on Mar 18, 2010
It reminds me of the first predator somewhat and that's a good thing. hope it rocks.
jake the snake on Mar 18, 2010
Woohoo! im sold! i love predator movies and this one does look alot better than the past three predator movies that have been made.. it has a good cast (unlike either of the avp movies), it has new ideas, but at the same time it doesnt go to far from the original predator.. i cant wait to see it!

Hell yes can wait..... wish we saw a little bit more of the predators and new creatures in this trailer, maybe in the next one
Tom W. on Mar 18, 2010
O.O That's awesome! The trailer was good, didn't show too much, and that's a good thing.
Xerxex on Mar 18, 2010
this really doesnt look all that great... storyline looks to be zero and it'll likely just be 90 minutes watching them all get picked off one by one in a corny way. i'm not sure how they can say they are going in a different new direction with the franchise either looks exactly the same as the first one except in the future. oh well
whoknows on Mar 18, 2010
oh hell yes. yes!
DoomCanoe on Mar 18, 2010
Totally in. This looks like the rebirth of the franchise we've been waiting for.

DoomCanoe on Mar 18, 2010
Hm....... not bad?
davey into savory on Mar 18, 2010
#9...uh...MORON....The movie is called Predators, about creatures that hunt and kill their prey. So what else would happen other than the humans getting picked off one by one. If you want story go read a Nicholas Sparks novel you queer. And leave the badass action to those who can appreciate it..... NUFF SAID
CORNBOY on Mar 19, 2010
That the most badass scene ever the shot of the predator lifting someone up, Can't fucking wait all those you hate Robert Rodriguez fuck off right now we see you the losers are
Richard on Mar 19, 2010
Looks like a terrible retread of the original, just with a different cast and more predators. Nothing will EVER top the original. It has some of the best raw suspense ever to be put on film, not to mention colourful characters that you actually give a shit about. Plus, it was made in an era where films were still being cared for. One predator was scary enough. Ten predators. Oh, yawn....but the fish will lap it up.
Captain Cynical on Mar 19, 2010
Robert Rodrigueze, he is writing a script for that movie, he's not just a producer, go check out his other Screenplays that he wrote, he always got a fresh ideas and acualy interesting characters and funny dialogs (he wrote: Planet terror and desperado all by himself)
GOD on Mar 19, 2010
looks better then expected.

Danny Trejo is in this? I'm in!

Im dubious about Larry Fishburn and his jowley chin. Other than that it looks OK.
trailerguy on Mar 19, 2010
#9 your are shit and no on cares. go make a movie.
Herezjonny on Mar 19, 2010
Looks like fun. But just think how much more fun it would be if this were a new movie and not another remake of a classic.
scott on Mar 19, 2010
Legen.....wait for it...........DARY!
Deathtoll 2010 on Mar 19, 2010
Looks really bad, from what I can see this looks like crap with good actors doing bad acting and looks boring and I am really dissapointed
Loser on Mar 19, 2010
Thanks #23 and #33, your comments only prove who this movie is made for... dumbasses who get excited by action only and probably liked transformers 2. And dont get me wrong, i loved the first predator... i just dont see how this is unique in any way.
whoknows on Mar 19, 2010
Love the shot of Fishburne holding the Predator helmet in the beginning. I agree with most everyone who said this looks better than expected. Love some of the nods to the original...so far, namely the gattling gun and that capture net shot. Although, haven't been a fan of any movie with Michelle Rodriguez...but I'm still in. See you in July:)
Marc on Mar 19, 2010
Looks good. Please Nimrod... don't pull a McG.
bozo on Mar 19, 2010
Looks spot on so far. Here's hoping the final product keeps up with the trailer.
YK on Mar 19, 2010
So angry... I wanna know what colour pill Morpheus made them take to get them down that rabbit hole....

Hope they kill Topher Grace first! hahahaha

@21 hahaha that's a sweet idea. Tremors was the shit. They need the Baconator tho haha. P.S. Predators looks awesome.
Shaun on Mar 19, 2010
Looks shit. Is this PG-13 again ?
shige on Mar 19, 2010
#38 "Thanks #23 and #33, your comments only prove who this movie is made for… dumbasses who get excited by action only and probably liked transformers 2." Ummmm...anyone who saw and liked the original is a "dumbass" only excited by action probably only liked the action scenes from TF2 and nothing else. Seriously your in one of the most famous B action movie threads calling action movie goers dumbasses, your the one looking like a dumbass. I love action driven movies and if thats what I expect from a movie and get it then yes I love it. Its unique because the last 2 pred movie attempts pred fans were not given anything that they were promised and this finally looks like that movie we have been waiting for. I agree it probably wont match the original but if it gets anywhere close or even couple steps above of the shit AVP films Ill be happy. I love a well plotted intelligent film but I also adore a bloody action driven movie. Seriously like Cornboy said "If you want story go read a Nicholas Sparks novel you queer. And leave the badass action to those who can appreciate it….. NUFF SAID"
Cody w on Mar 19, 2010
I'm going to give some advice to everyone who is excited and pumped for this movie. Don't be. Don't get your hopes up for this movie at all. That way when it turns out worse than you expected it to be you won't feel upset about it. At best this movie could be half as good as Terminator Salvation. At best. I have read the script and it is piss poor stupid, and that was after it already went through 2 or 3 drafts. Rodriquez's first draft was one of the worst things I've ever read. For everyone that thinks this will be any better than those awful AVP movies, personally I don't see how it could be. What made the AVP movies so bad? In my opinion it was the some of the predator weaponry namely the wrist blades that were the size of katanas. Looked so stupid. They should have just had the predators walking around with swords. If you look at the teaser poster for Predators it clearly shows that they picked up the trend from AVP. The other thing that made the movies so awful was that you didn't give a rat's ass about the human characters, at times I was personally rooting for them to get killed. This movie is no different. Almost all of the characters are essentially criminals. Why should I give a shit if they die? I don't. The first Predator movie was a lot better at making you care for the humans because they were fucking war heroes who were on a mission to supposedly rescue hostages. I'm not knocking action movies. I love them just as much as the next guy but story is important in any kind of cinema. Story is what separates cinema from stuff like "video art", which at times is just showing footage of meaningless things with no plot devices at all. If the story is complete shit, you really don't have a movie. Just images of people getting killed by familiar creatures, another reason AVP failed, and why this movie will fail as well.
Alex T. on Mar 19, 2010
Wow. Comments got heated. All I'll say is the scripts made the rounds and I've read it. There seems to be a unanimous agreement that the script is complete and utter shit. I'll admit, the trailer was pretty decent, but don't expect great things from the actual film. For those of you that care, there is literally zero plot. The script actually starts with them randomly falling from the sky and being hunted by Predators. Eventually we find out they are there to be hunted, like the trailer states, but it is never fully explained.
Guy on Mar 19, 2010
I like the characters, the setting, some of the cast and the way things are seeming to come together, but I still don't know. I'll have to re-watch the original Predator to come to a conclusion.
Robbie on Mar 19, 2010
Predators are rubbish.
Ambient on Mar 19, 2010
it looks like fun, what else are people expecting from this type of movie? to say it looks boring or unorigional....it is a different take on something seriously some people think every movie should remake cinema, when all they really are is just entertainment, maybe not for you but maybe for some cause the world don't move to the beat of just one drum.....
eviltodd on Mar 19, 2010
With an Oscar winning actor in the cast I thought this would be something more than just plain b action movie.
Loser on Mar 19, 2010
oh of course loser i mean halle berry won an oscar and catwoman...oh see what i did there, yeah one oscar doesn't mean the quality of a movie goes up pumpkin, enjoy it for the hunt chase explosions and deaths this is going to be relax
eviltodd on Mar 19, 2010
You are right we get what we pay for eviltodd, I watched to many movies over the years that it gets kind of boring when they just do the exact same thing over and over again. I hope it is better than I think because I really like the original.
Loser on Mar 19, 2010
hey i agree and i understand the feeling of being let down by something you have high hopes for, i just learned that we are at the whim of what they put out and to enjoy it or not, life is too short to let a moive twist ya up
eviltodd on Mar 19, 2010
mercenaries...that's exactly why aliens 5 failed. but i'll still pay money to see this.
GET TO DA CHOPPAAAAAA! on Mar 19, 2010
This looks terrible. As a fan of the original who was sorely disappointed by AVP 1 (didn't have the stomach to see AVP 2), I can tell you it's all you suckers who think this looks good that allows them to make crap like AVP. Watch the original. It's a great film. Though you'll probably think it's boring.
torg on Mar 19, 2010
@ Torg being a fan of the original myself (My Dad ad I watched it together when I was like 7 and it has remained a classic) and a hater of the AVP films, this looks like it paid homage to what the Thomas Brothers and McTiernan crafted, nothing can beat Predator, but Predators is hopefully ignoring AVP and staying in the realm of Predator and it looks like Antal and Rodriguez have created a great follow up to the classic.
Xerxex on Mar 19, 2010
i was sold the second i saw danny trejo!!
mikeyspikey89 on Mar 19, 2010
Weird, my trailer was only 2 minutes and not the entire movie...no wonder I have no idea if this movie will be awesome or suck ass. And to whoever brought up Halle Berry, what? She isn't even close to the level of talent some of the actors have in this.
Luminaire on Mar 19, 2010
hey dumb ass read the post prior i was relating the fact that loser said he was hoping for something more because of oscar caliber actors in this, halle berry won an oscar don't scan and then post you come off like a retard
eviltodd on Mar 19, 2010
Im not exceptionally excited, but I still cant wait for this one.
Al on Mar 19, 2010
Still think this is just a rental. I can see how Rodriguez is trying to make this a part homage to the first Predator, but still, this cast just doesn't do it for me. And that's just the cast. It will be enjoyable, but I doubt it will be enjoyable enough.
Gex on Mar 19, 2010
Cant believe he can act something like this!! He is a real gentleman
Tina on Mar 20, 2010
I've seen them all and will see this one. Corny? Probably. Who cares... it looks entertaining.
arjones on Mar 20, 2010
#46 you make no sense, the last 2 predator movies (avp) have both been action oriented, which you say you like, and yet no one liked them. This isnt going to be any different. And i liked the first predator because it was original and fun, all i'm saying is that this looks exactly the same as the first one and nothing new. And having at least some story helps... it can only be so good with this minimal of a storyline.
whoknows on Mar 20, 2010
Fisherr on Mar 20, 2010
I'm a big fan of Robert Rodriguez. But when he first started making this film he said that it would be a direct sequal to the original and it would be ignoring Predator 2, AVP and AVP 2. Now I can understand him wanting to ignore both the AVP films. They were really bad, but to ignore Predator is stupid. That movie kicked Ass. Loved every minute of it. So when I heard he was ignoring Predator 2 I told myself that I wont be watching his new version. But now I think I'm going to have to change my mind because this film looks awesome. I am sure that I'm not the only one out there that loved Predator 2 though. The film was fun stuff. They didn't carbon copy the first film at all. It had a younger Predator and he battled against Jamacian Drug Lords and a very pissed off Danny Glover. He had new weapons and the film was more violent than the first film.
last son on Mar 20, 2010
well i think it looks bad ass! i love the original and this one looks to take it back to the feel of the first movie. can't wait and DANNY TREJO....i'm there!!! who cares about the actors any damn way this movie is about the predators and i'll be cheering for them anyway! to me they are and should be the focus not the humans.
thejugfather on Mar 21, 2010
I don't know about this but all i have to say is............ DANG! Adrien Brody looks smokin HOT!!!!! He totally buffed up for this film huh! Yummmmy..
monleo on Mar 21, 2010
All you people who keep saying AVP is bad can go suck it. AVP was great. Even James Cameron, who originally thought it would be bad, had to admit that he really liked it. So shut your yaps and quit knocking AVP already.
Mega Jet Jaguar on Mar 21, 2010
#71 @ Mega Jet Jaguar. James Cameron has never said he liked AVP. In fact I've seen a short interview with him where he says that the AVP movies fucked up the franchise(meaning the alien franchise). Heres the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKnS7CGWNmU AVP is awful all around. The movies and the games. By the way everyone is just stating their opinions on here so theres no need so say "go suck it" or any other juvenile phrase just because you don't agree with some people. Stop taking shit personally. Just because people say a movie you liked sucked doesn't mean they are trying to show you hostility.
Alex T. on Mar 21, 2010
I don't think the "Predators" ever had the gravitas (or the scaryness) that the "Aliens" had in their respective movies. Therefore bringing them together was a bit like bringing together Go-Bots and Transformers....IE something really great and original with something hmmokay and pretty unoriginal. The only plus is that Arnie is in the orginial Predator with a great cast of meaty 80's action stars.
Telltale Twin on Mar 22, 2010
It is meant to be a sequel for the first 2, the movie was shot in 53 days and there was a cameo appearance written for Arnold Schwarzenegger to reprise his role from the first Predator.
Voice123 - Trailer Voice Over on Mar 23, 2010
Ideas for possible plot details: if there are 2 predator tribes on the planet, maybe they are enemies and kill each other and leave their bodies at their camp entrances tied to a tree to warn the enemy. that would explain the dead predator tied to the tree in the sneak peak possibly. the predators could possibly control the direction the humans run in by setting traps and making them split up. if the predators do that then they could separate and see who gets the most kills. it might be a competition. i think that would make more sense, because 3 predators against 9 people means certain death for the humans. its just ridiculous. i don't know, i think it would be cool if the predator tribes were fighting each other in the movie and then the idea of the predators competing for kills. or maybe i smoke too much from my tobacco water pipe...
Lee Dub on Mar 28, 2010
personally, im just excited to see a fresh take on the whole predator concept. i think a director/writer would be hard pressed to do a worse job that Paul Anderson... all im saying.

Them movie looks good, but I don't get how everyone keeps saying its a remake. Its taking place on a different planet. The cons were basically kidnapped from Earth and taken to this planet. Hopefully its their homeworld and not just a planet they decided to set up on.

A luxury coach is also a great idea for kids as they will be able to avail all the latest gizmos like PSP and PlayStation. Cartoons and kids movies are commonplace on a luxury coach as the kids enjoy them. Men and woman can socialize and drink together in bars or simply enjoy music. Rest is important to the body and luxury coaches give you every bit of it by ensuring sleeping quarters or reclining seats.

This looks awful. When the guy suddenly has not one, but many targeting lasers appear on him, it just reeks of pure cheese. I'll watch it when it goes to disc and not be surprised that it sucks. The Alien and Predator franchises have both been dealt mortal blows already. Maybe Ridley Scott can salvage Alien with his prequels, but the Predator is irreparably cartoonish by now.
