Predator 30th Anniversary Trailer

"It came for the thrill of the hunt. It picked the wrong man to hunt." While we wait for Shane Black's new The Predator, set to hit theaters in 2018, we can all revisit the original. 20th Century Fox and Park Circus have released a new trailer for the 30th anniversary of John McTiernan's Predator, returning to theaters (in the UK) this November. The action classic was first released in 1987 and actually opened #1 at the box office in the middle of June, earning a total of $59.7 million during its US theatrical run. Predator starred Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his early iconic roles, Carl Weathers, Elpidia Carrillo, Bill Duke, Jesse Ventura, Sonny Landham, Richard Chaves, and, yes, even Shane Black. I wish this was a 4K restored re-release, but I don't think it is. Still, it's still awesome to see this film returning to theaters again.

Here's the new UK trailer for the 30th anniversary of John McTiernan's Predator, from YouTube:

Predator Poster

Dutch, Dillon and the rest of the squad are gearing up for another round of extraterrestrial extermination as cinemas celebrate the original Predator ahead of the 2018 arrival of Shane Black’s latest franchise installment, The Predator. Fondly remembered 3 decades after its initial release thanks to an arsenal of quotable one liners, its pleasingly old school special effects and a Schwarzenegger performance deftly poised between wry self-awareness and testosterone-fueled stoicism, Predator stands tall as the ultimate action movie machine; a muscle-bound, camo-clad, cigar-chomping romp that is at once quintessentially 80s and practically timeless. Predator was directed by John McTiernan (of Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, Last Action Hero) and first released in June of 1987. Fox has not announced any plans for a US re-release yet. Predator will return to UK cinemas this November. Stay tuned for updates. Planning to go?

Predator is a classic. McTiernan at his best. Conan the barbarian, Predator and Total Recall are my favorite movies starring Ahnold.

Hear you. Hollywood is a gladiator pit. Better to be watching than to be watched.

Dutch, Conan, Quaid and the T-800 are penultimate Arnie roles. I can't imagine anyone else playing those characters. He IS those characters.

McTiernan went to jail for lying to the FBI, but he was released in 2014 I believe. I remember being really excited for Medicine Man and then when I saw it....it was garbage. The message was lost and it was extremely boring. Glad your friend still came out on top regardless lol.

T2 is a classic because of the morphing effects and the great script, Cameron movies are always well crafted and in balance and it started with the second alien movie. But predator has such a badass alien, and the guys who are playing Arnold's buddies are so perfectly cast in this movie...

I never watch a movie with inside information, like most people do. For me it's the experience the most important. Afterwards i remember what i loved at that moment. Love to read your comments here on firstshowing.net..

Of course, I agree Ari. Under the condition that action films are true trash history of film ...

My friend, for someone who has to struggle like me it's great to escape in a action movie. A movie has to captivate me, and not bore me. And yes, intellectual movies can do that to, but they are so hard to find....

For any one who have never seen it, you owe it to yourself to go search for Jean Claude Van Damme as the Predator.

Seeing this film in the 90's as a young man, turned the scifi genre on it's head and changed my perspective of what an action hero could be. Also, the Predator effects STILL hold up. Brilliant and a classic action movie.

This movie is rewatchable over and over. Falls in my top 3 movies of all time. That’s how awesome it is.
