You can read the full statement released by Sega over on their forums. Thanks to Rebellion’s Eric for the news.
Total Film just announced that the Predators release date is August for those in the United Kingdom:
“With just four months to go until the film’s July release date (it’ll hit the UK on August 11), we’ll soon be able to see whether he’s managed it.”
Can’t say I’m shocked. That is pretty standard these days. Be sure to check out their entire feature while you’re over there. Thanks to DazAvP85 for the tip.
The L.A Times have just released a short interview they did with Nimrod Antal regarding Predators:
“They are all predators in their own right and they are at each others throats,” Antal said. “We’re expanding the mythology but we’re also making a stand-alone film. And, I hope this doesn’t sound arrogant, but when it comes to imagery that not one of the previous can come close to. I’m very proud of the way the film looks.”
The interview also contains some apparent spoilers regarding the plot and chronological order of the film. So if you don’t like spoilers, don’t read it. Those of you who do: Go crazy. Thanks to DazAvP85 for the news.
Wired.com has just posted up several new images from Predators. There are some concept art and one lovely shot of Nolan:

The first Predators footage has been released online via the Official Predators Website. It’s introduced by Robert Rodriguez and shows lots of new things including the new Predators and the dogs.
I especially like the cinematography as well. According to the official website, the teaser trailer will go live on the 18th of March. I’ve uploaded almost 80 screencaps from the video to the Gallery. Thanks to Nexus218, CWRardin, Doomofman, nero2108, m138jewski, XxsilenthunterxX, vikingspawn and AvPSpectrum for the news.
CinemaBlend and Bloody-Disgusting have done some nice reports on the Predators segment which was shown at the SXSW Film Festival in Texas a few hours ago. A teaser trailer was shown and a clip featuring Laurence Fishburne’s introduction after the main characters have landed on the island. Robert Rodriguez and director Nimród Antal also talked about the movie as well.
Firstly, Predators won’t be in 3D. The movie uses primarily practical shots with no CG Predators. Predators will definitely be R-Rated with a possible Unrated DVD. The first Predators trailer was rejected by the MPAA. There’s a different tribe of Predators including Falconer predators and a Flush Predator (AKA Black Super Predator) as well as predator dogs and airborne creatures. There is also new alien creatures including Predator animals and prey that the Predators have brought to the planet. They were also giving away Predators T-Shirts and signed Predators posters (seen above) at the festival.
Aint It Cool News has broken the news that long time Predator comic publisher Dark Horse is going to be publishing numerous comics for Predators:
“There’s a reason all of our characters end up in the position they find themselves in, in the film. My character is a mercenary and he’s extremely morally questionable, even for a mercenary. That helps him in his occupation in the prequel but whether he can adapt and evolve from that that will determine if he survives in the film.”
From the sounds of it we’ll be seeing prequels focusing on the characters, an adaptation of the film told from the perspective of Isabelle and a sequel following that. Don’t forget to read the entire article at AICN. Thanks to FearPeteySodes and VikingSpawn for the heads up.
Alex Litvak, one of the writers of the redrafts of Predators, recently spoke to Screenwriters Tips and during that interview he spoke briefly about Predators. He spoke about how the Predators in the new film are different in clan and technology to the previous movies. He also spoke briefly about the characters but there was nothing new there. Thanks to Johnny Handsome for the news:

There’s a new interview over on MTV Movies Blog with actress Alice Braga who will be playing Isabelle in Predators. She talks about the cast, particularly Adrian Brody and director Nimród Antal. She was also asked about an Arnie cameo but didn’t give anything away.
MTV News: So some footage is about to debut in Austin. Have you seen any of it yet?
Alice Braga: I haven’t seen. I saw it on set, some of the things. I’m really excited because it was a really cool project. We had a lot of fun on set. By what I’ve seen, the photography is beautiful. Gyula Pados is the [director of photography]. And Nimrod Antal is the director. But the predators, fans, they look really cool! I was really scared. The guys that play them, they’re really tall.
