The Predator Begins Shooting Today!

Today marks the first day that The Predator goes in front of cameras in Vancouver, Canada. Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s new Predator film is scheduled to film in Vancouver until the 15th of May.

We don’t know how much of the filming is taking place at Vancouver but it’s safe to assume that it’s the bulk of it considering how long the shoot is. According to Boyd Holbrook, some of The Predator will also be shot in Mexico – presumably as a stand-in for Cuba at the start of the film.

The start date for The Predator was pushed back three times. It was initially scheduled to commence filming on the 26th of September but was pushed back to the 17th of October and then again to today.

In addition to confirming filming would start today on Twitter, Shane Black also reaffirmed his commitment to the R-rating (something we reported back in May 2016) with a very straight forward tweet: “just to be clear… PG-13 is for pussies. Spines bleed… a lot.

The Predator is currently scheduled for release February 9th, 2018. Keep checking in with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on The Predator!

    The movie is already getting a "wtf is this" response on reddit just from the cast picture. I say you're all oblivious to the fact this is just what the Predator franchise needs. Every comment there is "wtf is this, their body mass is shit, all weak guys" stuff like that. People who think like that think what Predator franchise needs is another exact same installment, a bunch of buffed up guys who die one by one.

    I think this movie is going to be a lot of fun.

    Hear, hear! It's nice to see some open minds in that regard.

    Vancouver huh? Same city they shot AVPR in.

    Lots of films are shot in Vancouver. It's no indication of quality.

    a bunch of buffed up guys who die one by one.

    There are probally going to be a lot of guys being killed one by one. You cant run from that on a predator movie.

    For sure, but it doesn't look like it's going to be the focus.

    Shane and Fred have talked about wonder a lot. Wonder, wonder, wonder.

    So while the other Predator films are "Let's get the f**k outta here" movies, this one will be "Let's investigate and stay a while."

    Much like the first six Alien films were "Let's get the f**k outta here" to Prometheus's "Let's investigate and stay a while."

    Good shit. Good shit. Anybody who's anticipating this ensemble to lose a member every 8 minutes until Guy and Girl are the last ones standing is going to be acutely disappointed.

    This could be a very good thing if this movie ends up being decent. It opens up the potential for direct sequels if done properly with a continuing story- something a predator film hasn't done before.

    For all we know, the entire main cast may survive and carry onto another film in the franchise. I'm all for story and developing plot and characters instead of main characters getting bodied by the pred until one or two people remain to kill it off.

    There still has to be people being hunted though, that's a given :)

    I think there's a strong possibility of a small teaser trailer attached to Covenant. They'll be done shooting by the time that film is released, right?

    As for the picture I don't have a problem with it, but they've should've taken it on set with some much better background scenery.

    He responded to me on Twitter

    Yeah I just saw that. Tried myself getting few things answered... have had no luck lol.

    Does anyone know what normal happens on the first day? Black seems pretty cool on twitter posted a photo with him and the script this morning to confirm it was him.

    Hopefully the news about the genetically modified predator are false and they make a movie that is at least decent.

    Hopefully it's not 10ft and cgi.
