Predator Movie Preview & Review!!
Now if you have read any of my other hubs by now you know what a Sci-Fi & Horror fan I am and when you combine the two I have to say their is nothing better! Always been a fan of the old predator movies as well as the Alien Vs Predator series and now they are releasing a new predator!! Now this is not just a remake but a whole new story line which sounds even better then the first and a all new all star cast. So here are all the facts I have been able to gather up so far! Enjoy!
An early draft of the Predators script was leaked online in November 2009 but there has been changes made to that script although the basic story line is still accurate. The story is about the Predators kidnapping 8 humans (which they will soon find all have something in common in the reason they were picked by the predators) and dropping them on a planet for them to hunt. We meet the eight characters who parachuted onto the planet: Cuchillo, Nikolai, Isabelle, Stans, Mombasa, Hanzo, and Edwin. They soon realise they’re prey in a game of cat and mouse and they take off on the run in the jungle. The Predator planet is a game reserve and they are the game. The characters are killed off one by one by the Predators. The group eventually meet up with an American soldier called Nolan hiding in a cave. They find out that the Predators have been dropping humans into the game preserve for years. The remaining characters have to fight for their survival. Now unlike the other films there are new and different predators that will be revealed in the new movie which I will explain more about below.
20th Century Fox confirmed in April 2009 that Predators would be released on July 9, 2010. The studio promises the film to be “a bold new chapter in the Predator universe.”
The cast includes Adrien Brody, Alice Braga, Danny Trejo, Walt Goggins, Oleg Taktarov, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, Louiz Ozawa, Topher Grace and Laurence Fishburne. In the script, there’s also a cameo appearance from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character from the first Predator. It’s rumoured that the makers were trying to get Arnie to make an appearance. Derek Mears and Brian Steele are also playing predators.
There will be different types of Predators in the film. There will be a ‘Falconer’ Predator which uses a biomechanical bird creature (known as the Predator Falcon) to track prey from above. The Predator is able to see what the Falcon sees. A ‘Flusher’ Predator which the production crew call Mr. Black is very sleek looking and has black armour. There is a Predator who handles the Predator Dogs. The dogs are used to chase after their prey. The classic Predator from the original film will make an appearance. There are also two different tribes of Predators in the film.
This film looks like it will be amazing, you really cant ask for a more incredible cast and the CGI work actually looks very realistic. The ideas for the new predators are a great twist and people always love more killer creatures terrorizing the humans. The trailer leaves you with chills and excitement! This movie looks like one of the few remakes that might actually prove to be more popular than the original! Cant wait to give you a review once it comes out!
FIRST PREDATOR MOVIE REVIEW!!!!
"The pacing’s ace, too. There’s a late introduction of a new human that keeps things spicy (long-term survivor Laurence Fishburne – judging by that spare tyre, the foraging’s pretty good in this jungle), a beautifully-staged samurai sword battle in a field of long grass, and a majestic ending, where Brody goes ‘a bit Apocalypse Now’. With Predators, Rodriguez and Antal have made something old-fashioned, in the best possible way. They just GET what made the original such a hoot – and by and large, have reproduced the same thrills here. This movie sets action film-making back two decades. And hooray for that."
