Fortunately, it isn't. Part of it taking place in the burbs doesn't equate to it all taking place and that leaked script was nearly a year old.

Watched the Mr H video about the screener. I’m not going to like this I’m banking on it I hated Iron Man 3 with a passion because of all the reasons it sounds like went into the Predator movie.

Man I don’t think there will be any going back after this. Not like Alien that you can still fix.

I'm just hoping for a glimpse of a predator being the wheel of a classic car... no, half assed military transport dosen't cut it.

I think that it will do fine both at box office and critics, casual audiences dont think like us, people just want mindless action movies with lots of jokes, that is the trend now, and if the horrible Iron Man 3 is an example of that it should do fine then

You're saying only the people on this site appreciate/want to see movies with depth in story and/or little to no humor? And that critics are the same as casual moviegoers?


If that's what you're saying, then you're wrong.

The only thing saving this movie, is something so drastic it will set a new classic idea for the franchise like the way David was for Alien. Although the concept is old, its the actor that is not. somehow i don't see that happening unless....ARNOLD!!!!! with a BIONIC ARM!!!!

I was initially excited when I heard Black was directing, given he worked on the original film. However, everything I see or hear about this movie screams to me that it's going to be horrible. But the clincher for me is the damn kid in the movie. I absolutely loathe the fact there's a kid in this movie.

Again, a script that was nearly a year old by the time the film actually went in front of cameras.

In the first test

Then it is a null point.

And I don't even know if that's a thing still. No-one has mentioned this to me.

How about we wait to watch the finished product before casting a final judgement?

We will,  this time next year everything is clear. Judging by the script and what we've seen so far I choose to be cautiously pessimistic. Don't get me wrong, news from test screenings are suggesting it's going the right way, but you can polish the turd so much.

Q
Without knowing how much the budget is, if we speculated 80 million to make the film- what would it need to make to be considered successful? A flop could be a death blow to this franchise.
