Here’s something to wet your whistle before the new Predator sequel comes out next year. I’m sure we all remember the Pokémon Go phenomenon over last Summer – I was obsessed with the game for months on end. Anyway, last year two guys called Tim Osgood and Adam Martin came up with the idea to do a Predator/Pokemon crossover fan film. They started storyboarding and searching for locations and props. After buying some Predator hands on Amazon, the guys set off to Cannock Chase woods in Staffordshire, England and filmed there for two days. They finally finished editing and released it this week under the Film Hounds banner – Pokémon Gone – Gotta kill ’em all!. Check it out below:
The film is around three and a half minutes long and shows the Predator playing Pokémon Go in a forest, hunting a Pikachu. Two guys are later tracking some Pokémon and come across them hanging upside down from a tree. I thought the fan film was a great – extremely faithful to the Predator series. The editing, camera work and visual effects are all extremely well done. It’s really amazing what you can get done on a small budget and with a bit of talent.
