The Predator Trailer

"Tell me about the mission - did you see anything unusual?" 20th Century Fox has revealed the first teaser trailer for The Predator, a new take on the Predator sci-fi action franchise, this time directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys) - who appeared in the original Predator as the character Hawkins. This is somewhat of a re-imagining, or reboot, focusing on only one predator alien again who comes to Earth and wreaks havoc. The ensemble cast 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 our long-awaited first look at any footage from this, and so far it looks damn good - of course. It's only a tease but I'm totally sold already.

Here's the first teaser trailer (+ posters) for Shane Black's The Predator, direct from Fox's YouTube:

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. First impression? You in?

Hey Alex, what's the rating for this one?

Brandon Cole on May 10, 2018


It had better be R because if it's PG-13, I'm gonna have a conniption.

THE_RAW_ on May 10, 2018

4 that's how you spell conniption. Fascinating

Shane Black knows how to write a decent script and he has legacy from being in the first, so I'm hoping for good things from this.

I've got faith in Fred Dekker and Shane Black...but...the whole "hybridization" aspect is kind of groan worthy... Fingers crossed and chanting "Please don't suck, please don't suck..."

THE_RAW_ on May 10, 2018


God, please don't suck...

Not sure how I feel about this, I want to like it but did not see enough to like it. Story seems kinda duh, hopefully a full trailer will give us more

Tester on May 10, 2018


All it needs is a cameo from Dutch!

Lewis on May 10, 2018


We're all going to watch this. While excluding our intelligence in the process ...

I think that's what I'm going to have to do lol.

Brandon Cole on May 10, 2018


Hmm getting a terminator judgementday day vibe,so this could be very cool!

Hard pass.

Bangin'!! Cast is a bunch of whodats, but just happy to see the Predator on screen again.

Holbrook was great in Narcos, if you haven't seen that.

grimjob on May 10, 2018


What's da matta? CIA got you pushing too many penceels?

grimjob on May 10, 2018


I need this to be good. The original is one of my all time favorite movies. I enjoyed the sequel and Predators was decent enough. But this needs more than what was just shown. The Raw and Tester read my mind. Hawkins better not let me down!

grimjob on May 10, 2018


if it bleeds we can kill it

TheOct8pus on May 11, 2018


I'm honestly not sold. I love Shane Black but I need more convincing.

Franklin Carpio on May 11, 2018


Looks fairly typical. But Shane Black hasn't let me down yet so hopefully, it's just not a great trailer.

Jonathan on May 12, 2018


Couldn't be less excited by the first trailer. However, it's Shane Black so I'll give it a chance regardless. Honestly, I wish they'd make a film about the Predator universe. What's their planet like, what else do they hunt, etc.
