As if you needed anymore convincing to see Nimrod Antal’s Predators reboot, 20th Century Fox has just released the first two clips from the movie to wet your appetite even more.
Predators takes a group of “the most dangerous killers on the planet” and pits them against the deadly titular killers. Do we really need much more of a plot than that? The impressive cast features the likes of Adrien Brody, Laurence Fishburne, Alice Braga (I Am Legend), Danny Trejo and Topher Grace.
The first two clips thankfully suggest that Predators is going to be one of the better reboots out there, simultaneously keeping the tone of the original film while bringing something fresh to the table.
The first clip features Brody explaining what’s happening to the group (why they’re being hunted, etc.) and the second is an action-packed shoot-out scene (see if you recognize the music in that one!).
BONUS: Here is an additional clip from the film, featuring the introduction of Laurence Fishburne’s character:
I won’t say Predators is my most anticipated movie of 2010 (Inception takes that prize), but it’s certainly near the top, alongside Toy Story 3 (which has yet to release here in the UK), The Expendables and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I’m not expecting Shakespeare in terms of script or story; action and tension is where the importance lies and it certainly looks like they’ve nailed those aspects.
What do you make of the first two clips from Predators? How do you think the film is shaping up so far?
Predators gets its release on July 9th, 2010 (not long to go now!).
