With 248 days till the release of The Predator, what is your guess on the over/under for days prior to premiere date will the first trailer be released?

Rule of thumb for the average studio tentpole is 6 months prior to release. That would be February for The Predator, could be End of January with FOX's Maze Runner though. I wouldn't expect a trailer/teaser before that.

I'm not expecting anything until end of Jan/start of February personally. I think Shane Black made a comment on Twitter a while back that also put it in this timespan.

Remember the first teaser for Covenant came out kinda late, less than five months before the movie release ? I hope Fox will not do the same, i doubt it honestly but you never know...

Covenant was en exception, they shifted the release from August to May, soon after that we had the first teaser, which arrived on christmas, with the movie released on 19 May 2017. Still almost following the 6 months rule.

After the leaked non-official looks at some Predators, I was expecting they'd release official stills of them well before the trailer.

Now I'm wondering if the trailer will offer only slight glimpses.

One year ago, Alien: Covenant footage and trailer screened at 20th Century Fox 2017 Showcase Preview.
Corporal Hicks, have you heard anything about the 2018 Showcase ?
I hope, 20th century Fox will hold a similiar event this year with Predator trailer and footage.

I've enquired but haven't heard anything from the UK office. When I asked the US office a few months back there were no plans.

Early 2018...hope the first teaser has a bit of substance, not just clicking sounds and a mask

Anyone else tempted to not watch the trailer at all so all visuals are a surprise going in? I'm thinking that's what I might do. Perhaps listen to some of it, then get a feel for how movie fans feel about it but try to stay away from actually watching. These days so many trailers give away the whole movie, it's a shame.

I'll definitely watch it. You're right pointing out that some trailers show too much stuff, i hope that won't be the case for this one, because once i'll start watching, the damage will already be done. Remember the AVP R trailer ? This was ridiculous ! They showed all the potential "cool" stuff in it !
