New Predator Project on the Horizon?

Over the weekend a new picture appeared on the Predator Facebook page, teasing something Predator related appearing at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con:

16072013_01 New Predator Project on the Horizon?

Online media outlets are currently predicting a new Predator movie. Other predictions included a new game. However, with the announcement of the “Predator 3D toy” that will be at SDCC, I believe this will be in relation the 3D Blu-ray version of Predator announced earlier this year.

    Most people I've encountered who shit on Predator 2 are the type who rarely watch any movies and think that it's just more 'knowledgeable' to shit on a sequel just because it's a sequel.  An example is (and this was before Die Hard 4) is people who would speak of 'bad sequels' when mentioning Die Hard.  Yeah, all three Die Hard movies were good.  Not as good as the first, but to adamantly state that they aren't good at all is just annoying.

    Or others who say P2 sucks because of no Arnold.  What?  Bullshit.

    Great movie that did well to NOT suck next to the original.

    VERY WELL SAID.

    Still, P2 is considered good film by most people. I love it as much as P1, though I understand the difference between two. P1 is classic but no sequel to it, no matter how good, will be  classic.

    most of you sound hopeless about a new WELL made predator movie.

    It arguably hasn't happened since 1987, and after four failed attempts at making good movies I'm not sure I'd call people hopeless.

    I think its actually 1990. I actually enjoy Predator 2, seems much more violent and condensed than P1.

    That's why Hudson wrote 'arguably'.

    'Requiem' was more violent than Anderson's effort, too, but most people prefer the former, if they're forced to choose. Violence, on its own, doesn't make a good film as a whole. Just memorable individual scenes.

    For instance, the down time between action scenes can be appreciated in 'Predator', but I'm not sure most casual viewers enjoy the same filler content in the sequel to nearly the same degree.

    Does anybody know if Fox will be present at the NYCC in October?  I live in New Jersey and for obvious reasons couldn't make the SDCC where they were selling preorders of the Predator 3D set (it being halfway around the country); I may, however, be interested in taking a look if it comes to NYCC.  And for that matter, when does Predator 3D come out anyway?

    Fox is not the bad guy. They ask Rodriguez to make a further movie. The problem is that Rodriguez have to many projekts and not enough time. When Sin City 2 come in the cinemas, this would be 9 years after part 1.

    i guess sarcasm is not popular with you 2. its more to do with arnold then anyone here..   of course fox is the owner  ..daft? calling the kettle black much?..   my point is most of you sound hopeless about a new WELL made predator movie. im optimistic about it. fox wants arnold, arnold is in terminator 5 with a lead roll.. he said hes discussed predator as well.  leads me to think he is our only option at this point

    Chances of a new Predator film look bleak. The underwhelming box office results for the last film just aren't enough for Fox to move forward with a franchise that is floundering (film wise). With their plate full of other projects, I'm sure a Predator movie is the last thing on their minds. It's a shame because the popularity of merchandising, I assume, is great. NECA figures, novelty items, literature (despite not having anything recent). I just wish they would take a leap of faith and give a good director and good writer an opportunity to spark some life into it. Plenty of source material out there to choose from if nothing original! Spruce up one of these graphic novel or novel stories. Alas, I'm sure we've seen the last of the Preds on the big screen. :(
          so hopeless dude.   i think its up to arnold . not you.

    It's not up to Arnold at all.
    if arnold has been pursued for a predator film thats plot relied on dutch as a center piece id guess it was up to him. unless they would just replace arnold.

    what ive been wondering for years is,  why doesn't fox sell predator since fox is not really doung much with it other then repackaging the original films. let another studio try to milk something out of it??  hollywood is run by spoiled, greedy,  idiot children , thats why.

    Don't be daft. Nowhere in my comments did I allude to a new film being up to me, nor do I think it would be up to Arnold. That's a studio call.

    Don't get your hopes up.  Seperating the picture in Predator into several layers will or should be a pain in the ass.  It's not a case of making a building stand out in 3D, which has one straight concise wall with right angles, it's a case of thousands of leaves and other asymmetric vegetation.  That's a lot of work.

    It's not a question of whether or not it can be done - Jurassic Park proved that it can (e.g. raptors in the jungle scenes), it's a question of whether or not they half assed it.

    jessie venturas chest exploding in 3D.. mask taking off and roaring at arnold in 3D.. even the stick around blade in the guerrillas chest..  im wondering if the waterfall scene will be improved by 3D .   this feels like gears winding up for something bigger down the road to me.

    I was really hoping for a game because in reality theres only a hand full of predator only games that came out  while the Alien has had tons of stuff. Personally I think the predator franchise is being short handed while Alien is constantly thrown in everyones face with too much crap in it "cough"A:CM,prometheus,resurrection"cough" If it could possibly be a new movie I want it to expand on predators(but not IT the concept though) As I want to know,maybe the berserkers werent bad boods but a deep tribe feud where they shed blood that the others did to theres giving an explantion as why they hung the jungle hunter.
    If the movie would suck the only thing that keeps me watching is the design the pred has,like p2 it sucked but citys design was badass which kept me interested,predators was good to my personal taste and I thouht berserker's design was cool because the mask made him looked pissed at something and his face was scarier looking than any pred ive seen so far IMO. So theres my 2 cents on the subject.
    I hate to admit but Alien franchise dwarfs Predator franchise by a huge margin. Not only the first film set sci fi horror bar, the sequel set another bar which is something Predator 2 failed to do. Contrary to fans' opinion, Predator 2 did not do well financially and critically. That's why it took so much time to get another Predator movie let alone game after failure that was Concrete Jungle. Don't get me wrong. I like the game but it is not something to worship much. I mean even AVP franchise beat Predator. Just look at number of threads on each forum. Predator franchise is not that big to warrant financial success. That's why companies are hesitant on taking risk. I really wish someone with gut take Predator game seriously. We can only hope.

    I would get this if they added modern digital effects to spruce up the film; I never was a fan of the original Predator, one part was because of the outdated special effects and the other bigger part was that I never appreciated the Rambo mood of the film. :)  But, a remaster of the film will probably get me into seeing the film the way true fans of the movie do; I really appreciated the Jurassic Park 3D remaster and I didn't regret a second of it.

    Not really, they just said "All-New 3D Transfer", which could really mean the old master converted to 3d, because thats what makes it "all-new", technically speaking.

    I dont have a problem with the Hunter Edition, i still think the movie looks really pleasing on that one, but i wouldnt mind seeing the movie redone in 4K with a little less noise reduction here and there.

    I never had a problem with the grain, thats what movies from the 80s look like, but the print was always in really bad shape (dropouts and print damages were heavy on the DVD and 2008 blu-ray), the UHE doesnt have that, they restored a lot of that frame by frame and the effort shows.

    It was also announced that there will be a new remaster for the 3d version...So hopefully there might also be one for the 2d version seeing as how there is a 2d version included with the 3d one???

    I might feel betrayed, I might cry, and I might kick f**king holes in my wall. WHY IN THE HELL WOULD YOU LEAD PEOPLE ON TO SOMETHING THAT WE WANTED, THEN TELL US IT WAS FOR A f**kING 3D RELEASE. I don't have 3D, hell 1 out of 5.9999999 Billion people on the planet don't have a 3D television. Why make that kind of announcement on something everybody would be looking at waiting to hear news for a new film, next time tell us ahead of time it was your shitty advertisement for a 3D release. FOX IS FULL OF ASSHOLES.

    That felt goooooooooood, blowing steam......blowing.....steam.

    When you come to think of it, a 3D Predator Blu-Ray was probably the most likely of all the new suggestions; thoughts of a movie, video game, or even comic seem to good to be true at this point. :(  I just lament that this will probably not be released in theatres which is too bad cause I don't have a 3D TV.

    New movie would be cool...if directed by someone who doesnt think he can make something that will top the original. Rodriguez Super predator idea- I cant desribe how i hate him for such retard idea-they were bad bloods nothing more-but thanx to him many, among Younger fans consider them to exist-it bugs me because he wanted to show that he can create something more badass than original- he failed in that quest but younger fans still think this retard idea/new species of predator exists.

    It was a bad idea with even worse execution. Bad bloods/renegades would've been fine. "Black super predators" who don't even feel predator-ish are really lame
  25. Roargathor
    I have to agree with what others have said.  If it was a movie, we'd have heard more about it by now.  Nothing stays so tightly under wraps in this industry anymore.  Bummer though, I was kinda hoping for a new film.

    We may not know what the f*** we're dealing with, but we know Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer killed one of these creatures, and he has left behind clues to help us beat these bastards. Stay tuned for further intel. ‪#‎HUNTthePREDATOR‬

    Good lord, Fox is really pimping out for this 3D Blu-ray, huh?

    Well luckily, most of that movie deals with the creature. I'd say 80-85% P2 was nothing but City Hunter wreaking havoc.

    I doubt it featured that heavily. :)

    P2 had the mix of suspense, actors, story line, it was the perfect sequel to the original.  Honestly I am on the fence over which one I like better, the original or sequel but I will say that both films are highly regarded as excellent work.

    The acting is bad (the guy still 'choking', even though Harrigan's got his hand about five inches away from his throat, never fails to make me laugh) and there's largely no suspense in the story, due to the audience already knowing fully well what's doing the killing (the script's biggest flaw, since it partly attempts to be a detective mystery). The attempts at forced comedy, in particular, just don't work.

    The action sequences are generally very good, though, yes. Aside from the weirdness of Bill Paxton seemingly throwing a golf ball for no apparent reason... :) Stuff like King Willy's death, the slaughterhouse scene and things like that, however - entertaining stuff. Although, even there, the capture team behave just... Really inept. You don't get the impression that they're professionals (compare them to how Dutch's people were established and there's no contest).

    Just my opinion, though. Your mileage may vary.

    You have good points, P2 is not without its faults.

      I felt the suspense of " whoa a Predator in the city" and thought Glover was the right contrast to Dutch's team eliminating the rerun effect.  Also the 80's was big guns, big muscles then we switch to the 90's with a street smart cop.  I liked the little bits of comedy, but thats just personal taste.  You have to admit the subway scene was awesome  :)
