The Predator Synopsis Leaks Online!

The Predator synopsis leaks online! Some of you may have seen the very small coverage over a possible leaked synopsis of The Predator at the end of last week. Some of you may have been involved in the discussion of it in our forums over the weekend.

We opted not to cover it while we worked to verify its authenticity before giving it any coverage. And we’re now confident that the information reported by SplashReport (the details have since been removed by request of 20th Century Fox) is legitimate. We can’t, however, say how old it is or how relevant the information is to the current iteration of The Predator.

[Removed at the request of 20th Century Fox]

This synopsis sounds very similar to some of the details leaked to reddit last August. One thing of note is that this synopsis once again mentions the suburbia, something that Shane Black has gone on record as having denied so it’s very possible these details are now out of date.

 The Predator Synopsis Leaks Online!

The Predator may be revisiting the concept of genetically altered Predators, something that was explored in the development of Predators seen here in this concept art by John Wheaton.

Interestingly there’s quite a few callbacks to Robert Rodriguez’s last Predator film, Predators. An earlier concept explored for Predators was that the Berserker Predators would in fact be genetically altering themselves. And, of course, the Predator Hounds.  As well as the synopsis, SlashReport also had character details:

    Predator 2 is a worthy sequel. It added a lot of interesting thing to the predator mythology showing us the interior of their ship, some new toys,what they eat on Earth... The cast was nowhere near as strong as in the original but still quite solid. So far P2 is is the only worthy sequel.

    Hopkins was off the back of a successful, low-budget horror film.

    McTiernan wasn't a name when he did Predator either. They used to give these movies to people who showed talent but didn't have big names.

    I really like glover in it. It's different. You have an average Joe up against the predator. I liked that. He got lucky all the way through the movie. Script has some weaknesses.

    I am a big fan o the movie though.
  4. BishopShouldGo
    Yeah it's a problem but one of the lesser ones. They didn't even replace Arnold with a box office equal, they replaced with a second fiddle. Danny is a fine actor though.

    If Fox was serious they wouldn't have hired Hopkins, and they would've gotten Bruce or Mel for Harrigan.

    And oh. Most of all. They wouldn't have used that script!

    I always thought the P2 reviews were harsh. I think it is a sound movie. It adds plenty to the 'Predator Lore'.

    I used to always get Empire Magazine a while back and they re reviewed Predator 2 and gave it 4 stars. The reviewer said he felt it was badly recieved when released because Arnie did not return.

    I found it an interesting read.

    Predator 2 flopped and that is that. Release date had nothing to do with it and even if it did, oh well. Scream was a *Christmas* release! That movie conquered.

    Some of my favorite films were flops. Oh well though, you know? Facts are facts are facts.

    It's a shame that the general consensus is a movie sucks if it bombs at the box office though.

    I'm a sucker for flops too. For example Dracula Untold sucked but it's one of my favourite films :P

    Predator 2 is f**kin great aswell, but just like anything else I enjoy, it sucked according to everyone else and hurt the franchise because it couldn't pull the numbers

    No one is saying a movie's bad because it flops.

    The release date had a lot to do with it. Why put a movie like that against Dances with Wolves and Home Alone? Scream actually bombed when it first released. It was the word of mouth that saved that movie. I know because I was working at movie theater at the time. We actually got rid of it and then it came back a couple weeks later.

    It bombed. Enough with the release date! Lol. I know it had something to do with it. I don't care. The movie also got bad reviews.

    Hollywood cares about money, they always have, they always will, it's a business. There are horrendous movies that make a shitload of cash, and they get sequels.

    Unfortunately, Predator 2 wasn't well received and didn't make money, and that was the final nail in the coffin. I still love it, money does not equal quality. But you gotta understand the producers, you just burned a shitload of cash, you don't repeat.

    Bullshit. John McTiernan was The Michel Bay of 80' and had Arnie, Jessie and Apollo effin Creeed in his team just to name a few.

    John McTiernan didn't become John McTiernan until after Predator, is the point.

    Shane Black is making a Predator film after he became thee Shane Black.

    No bullshit here.

    Shane was never praised for his directing skills, but he was praised for his writing skills.
    Shane directed smart, critically acclaimed movies that were also liked by the audiences, and that's what makes a good director.

    Point is, McTiernan was never praised for anything up until Predator, in fact he made one movie before that neither did good financially or critically, so they took a risk.

    Shane Black is a household name in Hollywood and a lot of people are excited by the fact he's doing the movie, if you look at social media, a lot of people that never cared for Predator will only watch this because it's a "Shane Black movie", so yeah, at this point this is in fact the very first prominent director this franchise ever had, and to top that, at his peak as well.

    Shane could do a bunch of other movies, he's only doing this because he's passionate about this franchise.

    Will it be a good movie? We'll see, there is no guarantee for anything, but we have every reason to believe this will be a cool movie experience, they even go for IMAX this time.

    All I can see everywhere is legitimate negativity toward the news,it's a fact, deal with it Johnny Boy.

    So let's check the filmography of Shane as a directror.

    Iron Man 3, hated by the fans to these days.
    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang which was a flop and a so so movie.
    The Nice Guys, a movie with potencial ruined by a kid.Also it was a commercial failure.

     :oSoooo impressed by his directing skills.

    Iron Man 3 hated by fans? A solid 7,2 on IMDB, the best f**king plot twist ever made, liked by most critics, made over a billion.
    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, praised by critics, a solid 7,6 on IMDB.
    The Nice Guys, a solid 7,4 on IMDB, liked by critics. I loved the wise-ass kid in it, but that's my opinion.

    Predator 2 didn't flop? Dude, i love the movie, but it did flop, hence no movie for 20 years.

    Man, in what kind of alternate reality you live in? We're talking about the same movies? I'm not saying he's f**king Christopher Nolan, but it is a fact that his movies are well received and universally liked/loved my most people, there is really nothing to argue there.

    No one is expecting you to like anything and it's OK to be cautious... take 10 people on this board, at least 8 will have very different expectations of what this movie should be, what any movie should be, really... and like anybody else, i just care for what i like.

    Having said that, now would be the time to at least stop making yourself look like a opinionated person with no knowledge whatsoever about anything you talk about, 'cause you come across as desperate now :-[

    Fox dumped it at the worst possible time against stiff competition. Maybe an October release would've been better, but at the time the film wasn't very liked.

    I didn't even know they made another until my mom rented it and me and my brother watched it. I liked it a lot. The Jamaican scene scared the crap out of me. lol

    Predator 2  wasn't a flop.

    That must've been why they didn't make another one for 20 years, and in the interim had to piggyback off of Alien.

    Predator is a special franchise. Studios make tons of movies that don't even break even, but they make them because they believe in the product. In my opinion, they probably thought the franchise was too important not to take anymore chances with. Jurassic Park 3 was a commercial success, but it still took 15 years to make a sequel to that. It's not always about the money. Sometimes it's about the quality and integrity of the franchise. If it was all about the money, we'd be on Jurassic Park 8 or 9 by now. Ah hell, then Disney completely ruins what I'm saying with a new Star Wars movie every year. Damn Disney. Let me rephrase that: For some studios it's all about the money.

    Iron Man 3 was a critical and commercial success.

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang? Critical success. Wasn't a commercial success, but neither was the movie you worship, Predator 2. And that wasn't even a critical success.

    The Nice Guys? Critical success. Wasn't a commercial success, but neither was the movie you worship, Predator 2. And that wasn't even a critical success.

    The Predator will be Shane's second directorial movie that'll be based on preexisting material, I have a feeling that in addition to it being a critical success, it'll be a commercial one too. Obviously, obviously, obviously not at the level of Iron Man 3, but a commercial success in its own right.

    Predator fans ain't ever had it so good and most of them don't even realize it. Just like Alien fans ain't ever had it so good with Ridley back, even though many, myself included, were underwhelmed by the trailer.

    Can't take this for granted. These are the halcyon days, as opposed to 1992-2007 when: (Dillon's voice) "The apocalypse is upON us!"

    100% spot on, the lot of it.

    After he posted the first cast photo his Twitter account followers went from 5-6,000 to 15,000 plus in just 2 days....there's definitely a good buzz about him making this movie good

    Quite honestly, we should all be honored and overly grateful someone like Shane is even touching this material. Especially in a post-AvP:R world.

    Mr. Billion Dollar Iron Man 3 could've just done Doc Savage and not deal with Predator Part 6. For the first time in franchise history, a guy who's a big deal and at the apex of his career is directing Predator.

    You ain't ever had it so good.

    TPTB should never listen to fans. SM said it best in the past when he said fans don't know what they want. We're such a varied crowd and we all see different things in these films that appeal to us. It's impossible to please all

    Agreed. I have managed to see a pattern when it comes to expectations for fans in an established series. They tend to compose their own vision of what the film should be and when it fails to correlate on that vision, they consider it bad. I notice that this is more frequent in the AvP fanbase, after all, we've taken a lot of abuse in terms of the content we have been getting for the past 15 years.

    This is SO true. So many fans have shown this kind of behaviour and it's not always AvP. You see it in the Godzilla fandom as well.

    People make their own vision, have their own expectations and speculations and suddenly the film turns out to be its own thing, then the people with said speculations either like the new thing or are heavily disappointed that they didn't get their way.

    I don't do this, I just hear a new movie's coming out, get excited that it's coming out, then go to cinema, watch it, see what's new and like it. XD

    Many people are right when they say that expectations tend to lead to disappointments.

    Another thing is that some fans are so passionate about the good old stuff that they'd have it be made over and over and over and over and over again without adding something new and refreshing.

    I love Predator, I'm a huge fan of the franchise, but even I think "hunt *soldier/cop/gang/* in *insert location*" will get stale real fast.

    I'm all for them breaking the cycle and showing us something new and refreshing. How do Predators deal under pressure? What happens when prey becomes predator? How do they respond to capture? What do they do when we take their tools? Interesting concepts.

    Or we can just have another banal hunt like we've had for the last 3 films (5 if you count the AvPs)

    Like Corporal Hicks said, just how many stories can you really tell with a cycle like that?

    One of my friends keeps telling me how this franchise isn't all that big because it sticks to such a niche. There's even a thread on this forum discussing just how big the franchise is. Why? Because "*hunt* in *location*" that's why... Instead of something new and different like "hey, there's this film about an alien who comes to hunt on Earth but he gets captured and shit and then we hunt him and he turns the tables on us, it's real cool!"

    We've already had a story about aliens hunting us, hell, Predator wasn't even the first film that had an alien hunter in it anyway, the only reason it succeeded was because it used that trope in such a unique way by having a manly alien kick the asses of manly soldiers. Now that we've had that, let the franchise be something new and intriguing while still retaining the classic Predator we all recognise and love.

    We don't need a manly muscle bound testosterone film, this ain't the 80's anymore.

    Seriously, if you guys want the same old, you've literally got 5 films to do it. Enjoy your marathons. Let them try something new. Don't like, don't watch. No one's forcing you.

    Personally, I didn't like the Super Predators nor did I like Predators very much. I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt though. I think that's fair.

    The Super Predator's never materialized. It's equally as likely that Predator 2.0 will never materialize either.

    I managed to verify that this intel sounds like it came from one of the earlier drafts that Shane Black wrote. I can't get a specific date on that unfortunately but it does seem that they were exploring this at one point or anything.

    Personally, I'm not a massive fan of the specifics but I'm interested in the broadstrokes of the story. I like it isn't just a repeat of a hunt and they're going somewhere different with it. I'm not fussed on mailing Predator tech to his son, nor am I sold on the concept of the Predator 2.0 but I'm not willing to condemn it just yet. We don't know how much has changed over development. 

    I've gotten over a lot of my initial fears of the story. I can only comment when I actually see some footage of the film. That's where I am right now.
