The Predator Release Date Pushed Back Again – Now September 14th

Continuing the trend of its release date being bounced around, it would appear that The Predator has been pushed back again. Exhibitor Relations are reporting that The Predator will now be releasing a month and a bit later on September the 14th.

“THE PREDATOR sets its sights on Sept. 14, 2018 instead of August 3rd. Obviously hoping to scare up some of that mad money Stephen King’s IT made last year in what is typically a box office dead zone.”

A September 14th release date now brings The Predator up against Alpha, The Darkest Minds and Fighting With My Family (which stars Lena Headey, Nick Frost, Dwayne Johnson).

 The Predator Release Date Pushed Back Again - Now September 14th

This marks the 3rd occasion The Predator’s release date has been changed. It was originally scheduled for release on March 2nd, before being moved to February 9th and then to August 3rd. We’re currently awaiting an official comment from 20th Century Fox.

It was recently reported that The Predator was heading back to Vancouver for an additional three weeks of filming. This is currently scheduled to begin on the 12th of March and wrap-up on the 29th.

    I'm generally surprised that now in every second action movie there is a badass lady in the lead role and even a predator will now receive from them. Trends ruin the original idea.

    Tough lady is a theme in nearly every Predator film. Nothing new really.

    Yes but we must admit that Casey is portrayed as a little more badass than other females in predator movies, except maybe for Isabelle in predators.

    "Absolutely, yeah. A lot of this is handing off the baton to a new generation of characters,”said Cameron last September. “We’re starting a search for an 18-something young woman to essentially be the new centerpiece of these stories. And then a number of other characters around her and characters from the future. We still fold time in the story in intriguing ways. But we have Arnold’s character and Linda’s character to anchor it. Somewhere across there, and I won’t say where, the baton gets passed, so to speak.”

    James Cameron get's it.  Can he help Shane Black scripts?

    Delays are always a bummer, but I think they're doing the right thing here. There's something in the film they feel the need to change or add. The fact that they're taking the time to make adjustments is re-assuring. It makes me feel that they really are taking this film seriously and are intent on putting forward the best film possible.

    I would like to add that i think it's risky for FOX to bet on IT's success for The Predator, because it's a very different movie style overall...

    Are you sure they're all that different?

    Ahh gotcha darkness , pretty crazy how the uk is super liberal with violent movies , yet violent video games like GTA etc always get an 18 stamp . Even alien isolation was an 18 yet alien:covenant was a 15.. pretty bonkers really !
  13. Darkness
    Deadpool was a 15 too. That was pretty tame from what I recall. I'd say Logan was gorier than that.

    Hard R is just a saying that some filmmakers use to say it's going to be fairly gory. You really would have to go out of your way to reach an 18 here and it just doesn't happen as movies are always made for America first. I suppose it's the equivalent of making a NC17 movie which is damn impossible as US cinemas refuse to show them. Hence why it never happens.
  14. Darkness
    A R rating here is almost always a 15. It's very rare these days to see an 18. You'll obviously get it with the Saw movies. It doesn't really matter anyway as both Predator and Predator 2 have been reclassified as 15 now.

    BigDaddyJohn .. works for me bro ! I loved IT ! Pennywise was incredible can't wait for part 2 !

    I think predator will be quite dark and serious in places but with black humour added in , I'm sure I read somewhere that it's going to go through different genres through the movie , Yano one minute it's a comical action film , one minute it's a horror film , the next a serious hard sci if film .

    I suspect the reshoots have happened to tone down the comical side of it and make it more serious and hard hitting , after the test screenings indicated it wasn't for everyone in terms of tone.

    So if predator builds of the back of ITs model of success , that can only be a good thing .

    Can anyone clarify if a R rated film is a 15 or a 18 in the uk ?


  16. BigDaddyJohn
    Man, the emotions are taking over ! Cool to see people come together, damn that's beautiful  ;) !

    Talking about the theory saying that The Predator has been moved to september due to IT's success, do you think that it will affect the tone of the trailers ? I mean, IT was marketed as a very serious and dark movie, and The Predator is less dark IMO, so i wonder if they will go for the "dark" trailers approach...
  17. ELDERCLANLEADER
    Yeah I truly do love predator , I think it boils down to being a kid , I had a pretty crap beginning , and predator was my way of escaping it .. so he's sort of family to me in a weird way , when the dark stuff used to happen , I'd imagine transforming into the beast and avenging some sweet justice on those responsible hahah . Daft I know , but I was only a kid with a huge imagination .

    I'll deffo go and check them guys out right away bio 🤗

    " Can we move along please ??? "

    Petr you should just forget it bro , it's all been done with , me and bio have made up , everyone is friends again . Let's just move on. It won't be hicks deleting your comments , it will be the other mods .

    Back to predator , I can't remember who said it now so my apologies , but the whole eating enemy organs to absorb their strength, to explain the DNA injections has really started to grow on me . When I think about the things I first thought I didn't like , I can see the potential now . Takes a lot to be adjusted to the new I guess .

    Haha 😂 it's cool man , people fall out , it's how we go forward that counts ..

    Joke aside, you certainly seem to have no shortage of passion for the franchise, I'll give you that. I learned a number of things from members here who are more serious Predator fans than I. You should check out the members Predator fan art, Gash, Metalblade, and others. Them boys got talent.

    Petr I've gone through all the deleted posts. I've restored the single post you made directed at azamultic as that wasn't a part of the issue and was deleted by accident. All other posts you made that were deleted were involved in this silly fight and will stay deleted. Hopefully that has settled the issue for you.
  20. ELDERCLANLEADER
    I mean I was talking with my girl today ( she enjoys predator ) and she basically voiced similar opinions to other members on this site , that new ideas do need to be injected into this franchise if it's to survive . I guess I'm stuck in my ways when it comes to predator , maybe it's the nostalgia, I don't know.

    I really enjoyed encounters of a third kind , and Shane black has gone on record to say he wants this film to provoke the same sort of reaction .. that to me is very promising indeed .

    I dont insult here anyone ever, I would be glad if anyone here will show me that kind of proof If I am really that wrong, my comments was about Predator and the franchise all the time, the only insult that I noticed is deleting long comments that take time to create, esspecialy when you're trying to answer on the same amount of info. from someone else. Thats not funny at all. Now, I see there are a lot of other comments that are still here, strange. . because all of my previous posts was recently deleted. First, Hicks tell me that I dont keep rules, and second, he said that my posts resulting into the insults. Now, everything that I post is after a while deleted. So, even if dont know what happen here, its all my fault or what? This is a false accuse. Im giving this post a one hour or less before it will be removed again.

    Haha 😂 it's cool man , people fall out , it's how we go forward that counts ..

    I do feel bad though , I took it way to far 😔

    Anyway back to the predator , I'm slowly coming around to the ideas this film will explore , I still think the script is questionable, but I do agree now , execution is where it's at , and as long as the predators look badass I'll be a happy man 🤗

    I would be fine with just a Netflix feature film. I think Netflix has produced some great feature films and series. And they are willing to throw some decent size budgets at their projects.

    Oh and welcome to the forums, Evil, time for truce works for me.
