Why are things looking grim? Because all the hardcore fans of the original Predator want it to be just like that?
Im sick of all the negativity, considering no one here has seen any footage, maybe wait until the movie is released to pass judgement. I am excited for this movie and cant wait to see it.
Let's just wait and see, people need to stop being overly dramatic. I have no idea how the movie will turn out, but saying Shane Black isn't passionate about this franchise is flat out bullshit. It's quite to opposite, and "fans" just need to realise that we aren't the only people who these movies are designed for, and people want something new and exciting and worth their time, same old same old won't get asses into seats, at least not enough.
We're in 2018, The Predator needs to compete with other current action/sci-fi franchises and keeping it down and low won't cut it anymore. I want to see the franchise live and breath and expand, instead of a small movie every decade that is being treated like the next Friday the 13th.
After AvP-R i thought we were going DTV, people were laughing over both franchises, now we get a movie with a very talented screenwriter and director and an upped budget, man, are things looking grim...
