The Predator TV Spot

The NBA Finals came to a close last night, but not before a brand new TV spot for this fall’s release of The Predator debuted.

The first trailer for The Predator was a little underwhelming, especially without a big moment to entice even the biggest fans of the franchise. But thankfully this latest TV spot is a much tighter and more exciting tease of the movie, especially because it teases the genetically modified hybrid mega-Predator, and this thing looks like a beast.

keegan-michael key predator interview

If the thought of Keegan-Michael Key, one of the funniest men alive, spouting Shane Black dialogue appeals to you…well, make sure The Predator is on your radar.

We visited the Vancouver set of the latest film in the alien hunter series last year and Key was as fast and funny in-person as you’d hope. But even while he brought the laughs, the actor made it clear that his soldier character is no joke: he’s going to give the Predator a challenge. Read More »

Olivia Munn Predator Interview

The Predator franchise has been all about tough guys and tough aliens. Big heroes and bigger guns. But Olivia Munn’s role in Shane Black’s upcoming sequel is something different. For starters, she’s a scientist, not a soldier. And she’s also a woman playing a key role in a series that has traditionally leaned toward the hyper-masculine.

We visited the Vancouver set of The Predator last year and Munn talked all about her experience on the film, including how she created some of her own character’s backstory.

Boyd Holbrook Predator Interview

Boyd Holbrook is blowing up. Although he’s been steadily working since breaking through in 2008’s Milk, he has finally taken several large leaps toward “leading man” status. First, he anchored the first two seasons of Netflix’s Narcos. And then he faced off against the Wolverine himself as a memorable villain in Logan.

Now, he follows in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny Glover, and Adrien Brody in The Predator. As the leading human of director Shane Black’s sequel, he gets plenty of face time with those ugly alien hunters. And when we visited the film’s Vancouver set last year, he talked all about it.

predator trailer new

Last year, I visited the Vancouver set of The Predator, the latest chapter in the “alien hunter comes to Earth and murders everyone” film series. But what we saw looked unlike any other Predator movie yet. And with Shane Black at the helm, maybe we shouldn’t have been surprised.

As the director of offbeat and darkly hilarious stories of violence and crime (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Nice Guys) and massive superhero movies (Iron Man 3), Black is uniquely suited to reinvent the Predator franchise. And he revealed a great deal about his intentions in a lengthy conversation with the visitors to his set.

The Predator synopsis

The Predator is one of /Film’s most anticipated movies of 2018. Previous sequels in this franchise haven’t remotely approached the quality of John McTiernan‘s 1987 classic, but the main reason we’re excited about this one is because it’s co-written and directed by Shane Black, the guy behind movies like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Nice Guys, and one of Marvel Studios’ very best films, Iron Man 3.

20th Century Fox has largely kept fans in the dark about Black’s plans for this upcoming sequel, but now the studio has released an official synopsis ahead of today’s CinemaCon presentation. Read it in full below.
