San Diego Comic Con has come and gone and as we expected, The Predator was a no-show. However, Olivia Munn was at the convention promoting her upcoming film The Lego Ninjago Movie. While chatting to YahooMovies about the new Lego movie, Olivia Dunn talked very briefly about The Predator.
Munn re-iterated that The Predator was set in the same universe as the other Predator films but it didn’t rely on them for its own story. More interestingly, she spoke a little about the first time she came across the actual Predator on the set of the new film.
“It was bananas. We all go into this room…it was really creepy….because we go into this room to go see him and he’s just…he’s moved by a guy with this remote control. It’s so visceral. He’s breathing and everything moves and it’s a trip. It’s really intense. It’s jarring actually because it’s not animated in CG, it’s just right there.”
Veteran Predator (and Alien) effects company Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. are providing the creature effects for Shane Black’s The Predator.
Fellow The Predator actor Keegan-Michael Key also recently talked a little about his experience working on the film, describing it as a “real privilege to do” and that viewers expecting a simple retread of the first film would be in for “a very pleasant surprise.”
Keegan also commented on the continuity of the new film, confusing the matter a little for people. He said it wasn’t a sequel. Alien vs. Predator Galaxy would just like to clarify that a little for those confused by his comments.
The Predator is a sequel, it is just not a direct continuation of any of the other Predator films. It is 100% set within the same continuity as it features Peter Keye’s very own son. It just doesn’t pick up any specific story threads from the previous film.
