Images removed at request of Fox

There’s been a deluge of behind-the-scenes Predators images arrive online today, first surfacing at the AVP Galaxy Forum. I suppose they contain moderately serious spoiler material, so click on with due caution. I’ve put my selection below the break here, but there’s even more on the forum.

The last name touted as front runner for directorship of the new Spider-Man series was 500 Days of Summer‘s Marc Webb. Okay – there’s that infamous Freakonomics theory that your name can shape your life, but maybe it seems this Webb might not stick. Another new name has been put forward, and this time it’s none other than Nimrod Antal, director of Kontroll, Vacancy, Armored and the upcoming Predators.

So, what did he do to deserve this honor?

Predators Director Defends Adrien Brody Casting

There was a lot of speculation about who would be cast as the lead in Predators, the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimród Antal-directed follow up to the classic John McTiernan / Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick Predator. (Do I really have to spell all that out? Probably not.) When Adrien Brody was announced, more than a few people (including me) went, ‘huh?’ Now, for the first time since the project began, Antal is talking about the film and his casting choices.

We also now know a few more minor members of the cast for the upcoming visit to the Predator planet, and there’s a last-minute report that Topher Grace is negotiating to join the cast, too.

Part of the interesting story behind Predators is that Fox is reportedly letting Nimrod Antal, Robert Rodriguez and Troublemaker Studios have their way with the project. At Comic Con, Rodriguez said they were just going to hole up in Austin and make the movie their way. But we knew the film wouldn’t entirely be shot there, and one report suggests the film won’t be based entirely in the Texas Hill Country, as the production has been scouting jungles in Hawaii. That sounds more like a Predator movie, at least. Read More »

Armored Movie Trailer 2

Armored

Screen Gems has released a second trailer for the action-thriller Armored. This film looks like one of those middle of the road action movies you don’t hear about before or after it hits theaters – it just seems to float in and out of existence. But since director Nimrod Antal is signed up to direct Predators, the Robert Rodriguez-produced Predator reboot for 20th Century Fox, everyone is taking a bit more notice.

The film tells the story of “a crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.” Starring Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich, Amaury Nolasco, Andre Jamal Kinney, Milo Ventimiglia, Fred Ward and Columbus Short. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
