The Predator Final Trailer

"My big boys a hunter - brought his dogs with him." 20th Century Fox has debuted one final, extra bloody red band trailer for The Predator, a new take on the Predator sci-fi action franchise, this time directed by Shane Black (of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys). The ensemble cast of this R-rated action movie is lead by Jacob Tremblay, who "accidentally triggers" their return to Earth again, along with Sterling K. Brown, Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn, Lochlyn Munro, Thomas Jane, Boyd Holbrook, Jake Busey, Keegan-Michael Key, Niall Matter, Trevante Rhodes (from Moonlight), plus Edward James Olmos. This is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival at Midnight in a few weeks, and hits theaters soon after - tickets are available now. They have dogs! Gnarly. I'm so ready to see this film.

Here's the brutal final red band trailer for Shane Black's The Predator, direct from Fox's YouTube:

The Predator Poster

You can watch the first teaser for Shane Black's The Predator here, or the second, full-length trailer.

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race. The Predator is directed by American filmmaker Shane Black, director of the films Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, and The Nice Guys previously; as well as a talented screenwriter. The screenplay is written by Fred Dekker (who directed The Monster Squad, Night of the Creeps) and Shane Black. Fox will release The Predator in theaters everywhere starting September 14th this fall. Thoughts? Looking better?

Looks intense. That being said, I really would like to see Olivia Munn in a good comedy. She was outstanding in "Newsroom".

They sure waited a long time to put out this trailer. This is the only footage that has been good enough to get people into theaters.

I really hope this is good. The original has been one of my favorites since I was a kid. What made it so great was McTiernan's masterful direction and the tension of likeable characters being silently hunted. I hope this isn't just action scene after action scene of explosions and generic people getting slaughtered, which can be fun too, but we've had enough of that already. I like 2, but the rest have pretty much shit on the franchise. Shane Black is a great choice, but I'm definitely tempering my expectations.

You gonna go see it in the theater @grimjob:disqus ?

Absolutely. You?

Maybe the second run theaters? IDK man, I'm just not into it lol. If I'm wrong, let me know to reconsider and I'll give it a shot.

I don't blame you. I just have a loyalty to the franchise simply because of my childhood. I was obsessed.

grimjob on Sep 4, 2018


Yeah man, I remember watching it for the first time and how I thought it was another typical Schwarzenegger action flick and the delight in realizing how wrong I was! lol

Props to you for saying good things about the second film. Some bits were appalling (primarily the acting of Maria Conchita Alonso) but some of the set pieces were superb, especially the abattoir scene and of course Danny Glover's palm slap put down in the face of Gary Busey.

Nice to hear from someone who agrees. We seem to be in the minority. The original is a movie that was way better than it should have been. Obviously the sequel won't be on the same level, but I think it holds its own just fine.

grimjob on Sep 3, 2018


Yes, we do appear to be in a minority. I saw this in Leicester Square when it came out and was so excited for it. I remember loving the way that the Pred could change the different filters on his vision and loved the work that Stan Winston did on the film. The Pred's little repair kit when he's tending to his severed arm is wonderful piece of prop work.

Payne by name on Sep 4, 2018


Getting Stan Winston was the best thing they could have done, and why it's lasted this long in so many different forms of media. I remember a friend of mine had a Predator 2 poster that was a diagram of all the new weapons and gadgets. I loved that thing, so much cool new shit.

It looks overstuffed with the scenes for every teenager. I will probably see it, just for fun and to spend a good time with friends afterwards while having a beer. But nothing more to it ...

I wasn't impressed with the previous trailers. THIS, however, has got me pondering whether or not I should drop some cash to go check it out in the theater. SO MANY brutal moments. Could potentially be a good action flick. Not a fan of the whole "lab explanation" thing though.

THE_RAW_ on Aug 31, 2018


I'm going for it...

Manoj Varughese on Aug 31, 2018


Let us know how it is!

THE_RAW_ on Aug 31, 2018

17 are comparatively better considering other predator movies in the franchise...regardless of which my plans will still stick on.

Manoj Varughese on Sep 8, 2018

18, caught it on cinema yesterday. Disappointed with what they did to this movie. I wish they could have toned down the one point, those lines began to irk the hell out. I was looking for that tense/horror feel of those previous movies. There was None. Predator 84 easily tops them all.

Manoj Varughese on Sep 21, 2018


That's a bummer man. I'm gonna give it a watch, but probably when it comes to Blu-Ray/cable.

Really wish they went with music other than cheesy 90s hip hop.
