‘Predators’ Clips Feature Tension and Thrills

Published 4 years ago by , Updated March 3rd, 2014 at 6:44 am,

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!).

Check both of the clips out below, courtesy of Joblo and Bloody-Disgusting:

“WE’RE THE GAME” CLIP

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!).

  1. awesome! im sold on this movie now. these clips seem to be edited down (if you watch the international trailer you’ll notice the 1st clip leaves something out haha) and they are already better than the 2 AVPs combined.

    im liking it!!

  2. looks great

  3. I’m a big fan of this franchise… I think that some of the movies have been crappy. This might be able to save them…

  4. Whew, that was tension. Gotta see this.

    • im stil having issues with brody being in this lol…just doenst fit, he’s too geeky/nerdy looking

  5. did you guys not notice the music from the original ? (1st clip) and how lawrence’ character said the same ****ing lines as the bald guy from he 1st movie ?

    jesus christ its almost a direct rip off of the original, im definitely waiting for a review before giving my money away to a wanna be remake

    also has anyone seen the ‘wake up’ clip (forgot the actual name, but its no ign) ? the confrontation between the russian cuchilo and brody’s character is so BS, its almost like they had no character development and decided to role on a bunch of blood and gore scenes to keep the fans happy hehhe

    • stupid lol i dont think the bald guy (names Bill Duke by the way) was invisible or had an alien weapon or scavenged on the Predator’s game preserve when he was saying “turn around” in the original movie. hows that a remake? a DIRECT ripoff? really? lol he said 4 words that were the same…

      and its a Predator score, even Predator 2 had the same score duh. Plus Debney changed it up if you actually pay attention and listen.

      the clips are edited (as in some cut footage) thats why there was no time for your character developement. if you dont like it jus say that but dont speak all that nonsense. youre emberassing yourself.

      • he repeats the same line more then once, much like the predator did in the original – it was used to mock the commandos (in this case the gang).

        i know the clips are edited but even so, the way its presented makes it look as if character development was the least of their concerns, and all they really cared about was attracting predo fans (back that is).

        btw the score on the 1st one isn’t ‘changed’ its pretty much the same as the original one.

        im not even gonna bother anymore, i’ll just wait for the damn review to give me an idea of how terrible this mess is actually is.

        • “he repeats the same line more then once, much like the predator did in the original – it was used to mock the commandos (in this case the gang).”

          …*sigh* yes. i know that….now tell me how it affects the story so much that it becomes a ripoff of the original movie. keep in mind that the original had the Pred saying that line only to dillon, right before he killed him, and here its a man cloaked who is trying to spook the group so that they trust him by knowing that he could have killed all of them if he wanted (slightly different situation wouldnt you say?)

          “im not even gonna bother anymore, i’ll just wait for the damn review to give me an idea of how terrible this mess is actually is”

          the original Predator movie wasnt recieved well by critics when it first came out, yet it is now considered a classic. but hey if you need someone else to tell you what is and what isnt a good movie thats fine. i dont care if you see it, i jus dont want stupid statements to be stated like they hold any water….

          “i know the clips are edited but even so, the way its presented makes it look as if character development was the least of their concerns, and all they really cared about was attracting predo fans (back that is).”
          leave the character developement to the actual movie. and all they really cared about was making the movie look interesting to all people. not just pred fans. obviously.

          “btw the score on the 1st one isn’t ‘changed’ its pretty much the same as the original one”

          PRETTY much being the key term there…..again Predator 2 had the same score. Debney changed the score up in this movie. every franchise has the same score. stop complaining.

          • honestly all people have to do is make a movie with guns, blood and s***** action sequences and you guys are sold. its no wonder movies make the most money in america, because you guys aren’t cynical about anything you just ‘go ahead and watch it’ then complain about how it ‘sucked’.

            take a lok at avatar, again you people don’t analyse the movie for acting skills etc you just give it a 5/5 because it looked ‘amazing’ hence why studios dumb down movies, cause all people care about is action, blood and mindless action/acting (refer to avatar).

            • jwalka,

              What did you think of the original Predator movie?

              Vic

              • i thought the original was ok, i mean it was cheesy but it had good action and the movie was ORIGINAL, this however seems to be a clone of the 1st, but with a different crew and instead of 1 predator we have 3-4 wooptiedoo.

                my point is, if your going to remake/reboot a movie then try and make it your own work, dont add stuff from past movies and try to make them come across as ‘easter eggs’ when they clearly aren’t.

                i bet this will be abit better then airbender (review wise).

                • jwalka:

                  a clone of the first….oh yea cuz they got this huge buff arnold type guy to play the lead right? and theres only one predator in here…and the group is just another team of commandos…..and its in another jungle here on earth….and there were hounds in the first one……and falcons too…….and the deaths will be exactly the same as the first…..and all characters will mirror the original cast….

                  but besides all of that its exactly the same. as you would say: “so theres more than one predator, wooptie do”

                  thats like sayig: “so theres a different sequence of events, wooptiedoo”

                  your argument holds no water. sorry

            • jwalka:

              good for audiences who liked avatar. i dont see what that has to do with this movie but whatever. you seem like a person who likes complex plots like Inception rather than simple plots like Predators. just remember it comes down to entertainment. and a complex plot does not guarantee a good movie just like a simple plot doesnt guarantee a bad movie.

              but that really has nothing to do with anything that youve been saying in past statements. again, if you dont like it, you should have just stated that to begin with. but invalid arguments are annoying

    • @jwalka:

      wow. you do know that the ‘wake up’ clip has been cut signigicantly right? or are you kidding? cuz Cuchillo appears behind Brody pretty quick at the end there….so of course its different in the movie. the clip wasnt really paced that way. also, there was not any blood or gore in that clip….soooo yea….think a lil would you?

      as for the music and the lines of the other clips….who cares? the movie looks awesome. if you cant see that by now then idk whats the matter with you.

  6. This movie is gonna be sick cant wait to watch this on the big screen

  7. Hey guys this movie WILL be awesome!!!!!
    As far as waiting for someone else’s opinion before making up your own mind???? I am amazed that you need to be told what to think??

    Lets wait and see shall we? Only a few days to go and i think you doubters will be eating your words!!

    Look upon this as if there had only ever been Predator, nothing else and it will be a fresh start to a much loved franchise!!!

  8. im still gonna see it, good, or bad, i mean RR promised us meaner predators, so yeah, im expecting more gore in this one. i actually loved the Predator when it firest came out years ago, i rarely, if at all listen to critics. who the hell cares if its direct ripoff or not, not me, i think that any lines it has from Predator might have been inserted as a type of homage anyway. just see it or not, stop lambasting it for these things and enjoy, its entertainemnt for some, a headache for others.
