Is this image teasing a new game or some tie-in to the original Predator film, or a new film sequel? We know that Fox has a “surprise” planned for its panel that will also show off footage from The Wolverine (opening right after Comic Con) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. But could there be a new Predator film, or a remake, in the offing as well?
The image comes from the Facebook page for the film Predators, released three years ago, with the tag “something is coming.” The map in the picture is of San Diego’s Gaslamp District — I.E. the location for Comic Con — which along with the text hints at some sort of scavenger hunt for attendees. What the reward at the end might be is unknown.
Update: This is for the 3D Blu-ray announcement for the original film. More details below.
That’s right: the original (not shot or released in 3D) has been converted to 3D for the new Blu release. And the packaging is wild. Here are details:
In a first-of-its-kind activation at Comic-Con, fans can enter booth #3528 and have their photo taken with state of the art cameras courtesy of 3D Systems. Their image will then be used to make them the victim as a customized figurine is created using 3D Systems 3D printing technology that features the Predator alien holding the fans’ severed head! The figurine is only available to fans that purchase the PREDATOR Blu-ray 3D, available exclusively for pre-order at Comic-Con and packaged in a limited edition Predator head for $129.99. Fans can also receive the figurine with the purchase of a “headless” Blu-ray 3D for $49.99.
