At San Diego Comic-Con, director Shane Black brought a new sneak peek of the latest entry in the Predator franchise that he was part of all the way back in the 1980s. But rather than slinging some inappropriate jokes in the jungle as a supporting star, this time he’s behind the camera for The Predator, bringing the galaxy’s most dangerous hunter to a new generation of audiences. So is The Predator up to the task of slaying in 2018? We attended The Predator Comic-Con 2018 panel in Hall H to find out. Read More »
Two new looks at The Predator are here to give us a glimpse of the new and improved alien trophy hunter. Shane Black‘s upcoming film attempts to breathe new life into the stagnant action franchise, but early buzz has been a bit muted. Perhaps these new Predator images will change that.

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.

There have been Predator action figures on the market for years now, and NECA has delivered some of the best in recent years, especially with the film’s 30th anniversary passing just last year. But all the action figures have only been variants of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character Dutch and the different kinds of Predators we’ve seen over the years from the entire franchise. But that changes this summer.
NECA has announced The Predator director Shane Black will finally be getting his own action figure. No, it’s not like the Guillermo del Toro collectible they’re bringing to San Diego Comic-Con, but instead an action figure of Shane Black’s character Hawkins from the original Predator back in 1987.
Check out more images of the Shane Black Predator action figure and find out how you can get it below. Read More »

Late last week, Beyond Fest 2017 hosted a double feature of Predator and The Running Man to celebrate the 30th anniversaries of both films, and star Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared in person for a Q&A session beforehand. It was everything an Arnold fan could have hoped for: great stories, terrific jokes, and even a surprise appearance by Predator co-star Bill Duke.
Read on for some highlights of the event, including a video of Arnold arm wrestling a young fan and the actor’s recounting of how he orchestrated one of Hollywood’s all-time great troll moves during the height of his feud with Sylvester Stallone. Read More »
Two of our favorite pop culture artists working today are undoubtedly Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. We’ve featured their work when they’ve had shows together, and we’ve even featured them when they tackle two different animated shows for adults. Now they’re back for another team show, this time delivering the ABCs of pop culture in a new show called Alphabitz.
Alphabitz does exactly what you would expect it to by having Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo create pop culture pieces inspired by the alphabet. For example, there’s P for Predator, V for Voltron, B for BB-8 and much more. But beyond having these familiar characters from pop culture representing a letter, what they’re doing is also indicative of the letter chosen, which makes for some goofy scenarios, like Freddy Krueger filing his nails in France, or Dracula driving Miss Daisy in a Dodge.
Check out pieces from the Alphabitz art show below, including some debut images given exclusively to /Film. Read More »

Plus, check out a remix of The Goonies from Eclectic Method, as well as a video essay focusing on the odd trend in cinema of having characters sliding down mountains, water slides, and mud slides in the 1980s and 1990s, and a hypothesis about why it was a phenomenon at the time.
