Fox is giving the Predator franchise another try with a new entry in the series called The Predator. The first trailer has arrived, but is this going to be the shot in the arm the franchise needs?
There have been three films in the main Predator series with the last one being Predators in 2010. Now The Predator will continue the series, and in an odd twist, Shane Black – who punched up the script of the original as well as acting in it – is back to direct this time.
It looks as though this one sees a Predator confrontation went down in Mexico, and the armor is shipped home by someone where it is activated by their child. Beyond that it appears there is another plot dealing with the Predators enhancing themselves, so it sounds as though there will be plenty going on in this film.
Will this be able to revitalize the series? Only time will tell.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
The Predator hits theaters on Sept. 14.
