In case you missed it over the weekend, a first look featurette for Predators premiered online and it looks pretty good.

Starring Adrien Brody, Laurence Fishburne, Alice Braga (Repo Men), Topher Grace, Danny Trejo, Derek Mears (Friday the 13th) and others, Predators is a reboot in which some of planet Earth’s most deadly killers are transported to a “game preserve” planet where they are hunted by tribes of Predators.

The film is being produced by Robert Rodriguez and directed by Nimród Antal (Armored, Vacancy) and the idea is to reintroduce audiences to the Predator mythology, while simultaneously cleaning the terrible taste of the Aliens vs. Predators series from the collective mouths of the movie going masses.

Since the first look look featurette premiered online, interest in Predators has been spiking. Thanks to our friends at Film School Rejects - who are currently at the SXSW festival – we now know some key details about Predators, which we’d like to share with you:

  • Robert Rodriguez came up with the concept back in 1996 as a sequel of sorts. His original vision had Arnold Schwarzenegger returning as Dutch.
  • Predators will be hard-R rated, and Fox is even pushing for an even gorier cut to release as an unrated DVD.
  • There’s an anti-CGI mentality: like the original, the Predators in the film will be actors in costumes boasting great makeup effects.
  • The movie will feature different tribes of Predators, some more fierce than others. There will also be “Predator animals” (See pics below).

There are more Predators details to sift through, but you’ll have to check them out over at Film School Rejects. For more concept art, head over to Wired.

Admittedly, I was on the fence about Predators up until now. However, after seeing the featurette, the concept art and reading over some details of the film, it seems to me like Rodriguez and Co., have the right mentality. And by “the right mentality” I of course mean love for the original film and not so much that sequel with Danny Glover and/or those knock-off AVP films.

Finally, unlike a lot of reboots/remakes/re-imaginings, the idea of taking the Predator premise and setting it on a Predator planet, is actually worth the time and cost of a feature film. Should be some bloody good fun.

  3. I'm a huge fan of Predator and this looks promising to me so far.

  4. I hope this one´s better than the AVP 2 crap movie…

    • you have no taste -.-

  5. like i said before its looks like a remake of the original.
    still going to watch it though, just hope its not overly graphic in terms of decapitations etc, that will ruin the mood.

  6. “Predators will be hard-R rated, and Fox is even pushing for an even gorier cut to release as an unrated DVD”
    F– A… thats wat am talking about.. dont even dare to make a PG-13 pred movie

  7. Might even top the first. Hard, but possible

  8. yea im also a predator fan and this is the kind of predator movie ive been waiting for them to make they have all the information about it and the upcoming aleins movie at avpgalaxy.net

  10. Ok so i've been looking at the trailers and doing alot of reading on practically every movie side piece article i could find. The final pic above is Laurence fishburne…In his Predator armor. I've never seen a weapon like that which begs me to wonder?? how long has he been surviving on that planet??? lol and did he build it himself?

    We know from the trailer most of the characters die…thats a given. What im not 100% on is who lives. Thats a great unknown. although my common sense says adrian brody…but who is to say. Maybe different Tribes live by different rules???

    Anyways Im pumped to see this….

    one last question that has been bugging me is….Why would one tribe of Predator tribes travel billions of miles to hunt humans while another just tractor beams them in???? And why would you want to blow up your own game reserve when you could blow up someone else'es world???

  11. animal predators and predators with different tribes… hahaha… I wish that fox should produce a movie like Predators tribal war…
