Predator wasn't near as comedic as this one seems to be though, but maybe it will be a good thing that blends well in the final product.

Predator is pretty damn comedic. It's one-liner galore. When I went to watch it for the anniversary release, there was an absolute load of audience laughter.

It's VERY funny for the first half... when the characters are just going about their job and they're not really treating this situation very seriously...
...and then the Predator shows up, the tension builds up and the jokes mostly fade away...

I always liked the way it handled the humor.

It's just the exact same information we've already had. I believe there's only 2 sources for that intel as well so it's not a massive selection pool of feedback either.

Yeah, it's one of the rare instances where a film switches genre halfway through. What starts out as a 80's action one-liner fest suddenly turns into a serious tension-filled horror. It's so well done.

My meta-jokey-explanation is actually it's a horror movie from the start, but the characters don't figure that out until it's too late. Like some twisted Last Action Hero stuff.

Apparently that newer aspect was severely downplayed in the first testing.

I am concerned that they lay the comedy on too thick...I don't want this to become Beverly Hills Cop or Lethal Weapon with some predators

Lethal Weapon, the film with multiple torture scenes and Riggs almost eating a bullet: laying on the comedy thick. :laugh:

Shane Black is funny, but he isn't THAT funny. I remember reading an interview a while back where he said that he got the idea of Riggs putting the gun in his mouth because he did the same thing in real life. He had been through rough depression and i think it can be felt in his movies.
