When The Predator arrived last year, it was to mostly mixed responses. While there was plenty of bloody action to behold and a great ensemble to revive the sci-fi action franchise, there was something about the final cut of the movie that felt slapped together, almost like pieces of the movie were missing. And since the movie underwent reshoots that significantly altered the ending, it’s clear that something went on behind the scenes resulting in an entertaining mess. And now we know more about that debacle. Read More »
It’s crazy to think that there’s more than one Alien vs Predator movie out there. But did you know that the Predator and the Xenomorph faced even deadlier enemies in comic books?
Back in 1991, Dark Horse and DC Comics teamed up to have the deadly Predator face-off with the Caped Crusader himself in Batman vs Predator. Then, just a few years later, Superman came face-to-face with a Xenomoprh warrior in Superman vs Aliens. The results were two unbelievable comic book match-ups with epic action, and now they’re getting their own action figure two-packs from NECA that will be available as San Diego Comic-Con 2019 exclusives.
Check out the Superman vs Aliens and Batman vs Predator action figures below. Read More »
John Wick and Predator may both be action franchises, but with the exception of high body counts, blood and bullets, they couldn’t be more different from each other. But soon enough they’ll both have one more thing in common: they’re getting the video game treatment.

Even though the Alien and Predator franchises have both gone in some weird directions over the years, their individual missteps pale in comparison to the insanity of the Alien vs Predator franchise. The war between these two interstellar species began in Dark Horse comic books back in 1989, and it came to arcades not long after in 1994. But sometime in the mid-90s, that battle almost came to video game consoles in a completely unexpected fashion: a cosmic football game. That’s right, there was almost an Alien vs Predator football video game set in the distant future. Find out all about it below. Read More »
When Predator first came out in 1987, there wasn’t much concern about making a movie that opened the gates for a whole franchise of films to follow. It was just a movie about a skilled alien hunter taking down a team of special forces badasses one by one, and that’s all we needed to know.
However, since then, an entire mythology has been built around the alien race known as Predators, and the latest installment of the franchise, The Predator, brings the threat of even further franchise expansion in the form of a convoluted story that bites off more than these ugly motherf*ckers can chew with their giant mandibles. You’ll see what we’re talking about when you watch The Predator Honest Trailer below, but beware of spoilers. Read More »

That’s right, the legendary JCVD was originally the man who was meant to be in the creature suit as the titular alien hunter in Predator, but the creature design ended up being drastically changed after the suit ended up looking positively terrible.
