There's a new trailer online for 20th Century Fox's upcoming Predators reboot from producer Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and director Nimrod Antal (Armored).
Predators marks a return for the alien hunter franchise to its "Humans vs. Predators" roots after the taking a detour through the Alien vs. Predator flicks. The action will shift from the jungles of Central America (the setting of the original 1987 Predator) to a wilderness reserve on the Predators' planet - a place where a group of deadly humans led by mercenary Royce (Adrien Brody) must fight for their lives.
This alternate trailer offers little in the way of brand new footage, but it forgoes much of Laurence Fishburne's foreboding dialogue from the official trailer and instead hints at the white-knuckle tension we can hopefully expect from the film.
Just have a look for yourselves (courtesy of Bloody Disgusting):
We've seen featurettes on most all of the Predators cast at this point - including Fishburne's maniacal Noland and Danny Trejo's drug kingpin, Cuchillo - and it looks as though they'll make worthy adversaries for the savage extra-terrestrial warriors. Admittedly, Adrien Brody is no Arnold Schwarzenegger - less muscle and goofy charm, more acting talent - but he'll do ;-) .
So what are your thoughts on Predators so far? Would you care to make any bets about who will or won't be alive by the time the end credits roll? Sound off in the comments section below.
