‘Predators’ Stalk the Cover of Widescreen Magazine

Published 5 years ago by , Updated June 27th, 2013 at 3:11 pm,

Widescreen magazine has Predators as their cover story this month and ShockTillYouDrop has posted the image. It gives us another look at some of the characters from the film including an unbelievably awesome peek at one of the titular creatures.

I have to say, the overall look strikes me as being incredibly similar to the original Stan Winston design from the first Predator; a look that was needlessly modified for the abysmal Alien vs. Predator films.

This is the first time the effects company KNB FX has worked on a Predator movie and from what we’ve seen so far I really think they knocked it out of the park.  I remain cautiously optimistic about the rest of the film, but if nothing else, it truly seems like everyone’s heart is in the right place with this project.

See for yourself:

It’s always tough to judge the individual elements without seeing how they fit within the context of the film, but again,  it’s reassuring to know that the Predators will actually look like Predators and not gorillas wearing football pads.

Here’s the official synopsis from Predators-Movie.com:

“A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimrod Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey.”

What do you think of the design? What are your thoughts on the way this sequel is shaping up?

  1. The anticipation is killing me…looks great. but all ive seen are the same trailers and pics…which is in some sense a wonderful thing. I really think this movie will turn out to be a surprise hit of the summer, mostly because most people (myself included) have been dissapointed by the last few movies.

    Heres hoping Predators can live up to the original.

    • When is it coming out is all I want to know

      • James, the release date is July 7th. We’re almost there!

  2. If the film returns to the “seminal” Predator concept, and incorporates (well) the cast, I can deffinately see this as a return to the first film’s ability to blow me ( and everyone else…) away. Count the AVP’s as marketing tools. This one could have real legs at the box-office.I sure hope so. Many thanks for keeping us interested, ScreenRant!

  3. Finally a new Predator film with no xenomorphs.

    Funny thing the cover is usually the best part of that mag. ;-)

    • smart ass :)

  4. They look like theyre ready to go to war
