    QuoteBut just because her character does work in a lab, it doesn't mean Munn won't get in on the action, too. Munn wouldn't get into spoiler territory, but revealed that she'll get to battle with the Predator.

    "Between us—wink-wink—it was awesome," Munn told Men's Fitness. "I'll say this, my character knows how to use a weapon. You always see in movies that the guys just automatically know how to use it and the girls, they have to kind of fumble through it. I didn't want her to be a soldier, but there's no reason why she wouldn't know how. Shane and I were on the same page about that immediately."

    Munn had high praise for her castmates and the vision that Black, who appeared in the original Predator alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, had for the film: "I think this Predator is really cool because it's a standalone," Munn said. "It's within the world of Predator but the movie is not a continuation of another one. It has its own ensemble with some amazing actors."

    Alice Braga is brazillian.
    And she was in Predators.

    She just wasnt playing a "latina" in it.

    I didn't say they were playing latina characters.  They just have that look like they are from Latin America.  I'm not saying they all look like that.  I've met people from South America and they have all colours/creeds.  Now you could say 'stereotype', but they made the casting decision, it's not like it's random or anything.

    Scientist means we'll get to know a Predator from a more biological perspective, a bit more details about who they are, what they do, something like "they have this organ to do xyz", I like it.

    I'm predicting love interest as well.  You don't get someone that hot just to play a scientist.

    In Hollywood, you do.

    "Gee, dad! And you just took all this stuff off a dead alien?!"
    "That's right, son."
    "And you didn't have to hand any of it over?"
    "No, son."
    "They just let you... Wait... How'd you get it past airport security? And if it's alien, how come you didn't you sell it and get super-rich?"
    "Well, son... Let me tell you a story."

    Is that rumoured plot true? It's an interesting concept if they do it right and the budget is there but I worry that it could easily end up looking like another AvPR.

    Unknown at this point, I'm afraid.

    Who was the guy who posted it? Someone with connections?

    It was a case of third hand information. He'd supposedly been told this by a friend.

    She's a bad actress. She's a Megan Fox. Nice to look at, but please don't say a ******g word... So of course she'll be get plenty of screen time even though she has the onscreen personality of *insert inanimate object here*

    Best case scenario is she gets impaled and skinned within the first 30 seconds of doing lab work on the Predator.

    Quote from: whiterabbit on Nov 04, 2016, 10:03:08 AMYou're just never going to let that "reboot" thing go, are you. :P

    Fair point :)

    But when the director himself has literally gone on record saying, "THIS FILM IS NOT A REBOOT," it seems pretty stupid to keep calling it one.

    Hoping they don't pull a soft reboot on us which Jurassic World, Star Wars The Force Awakens, Blair Witch 2016 have been nitpicked for.

    Also lol at the media still calling this film a reboot.
    You're just never going to let that "reboot" thing go, are you. :P

    Personally I'm betting on Afghanistan and this movie being a prequel. Yea I know it isn't going to be that but hey, who knows what can happen during script editing. However Munn is kind of perfect for a Predator movie. Nothing wrong with adding her to the cast.

    A Predator film, and any film, should be more than its location. The characters, the story, the mystery will all reel you in. I'd rather have a good story and characters in a suburban home than a bad story and characters in an underground arctic pyramid. If a fantastical or exotic location would've been best for telling his story, he would've set it there. Remember this film takes place in many locales anyway, per Dekker. Remember, The Predator is going to partly reminiscent of an early Spielberg film.

    Glad we have a scientist character though! Bring some gravitas to the series. Give us some nice scientific monologues. Commandos, cops, guys with guns, more guys with guns, yada yada yada.

    If he is going to be following the first 2 Pred films then we know that the Preds like hunting from high locations. Why would this hunter change that pattern and go to a place that does not offer that? Is this suburb filled with high trees? I guess it's possible since the pred was chilling on a tree in the cemetery in Pred 2.
