20th Century Fox Releases Official The Predator Synopsis Ahead of Cinemacon Showcase

In just over an hour 20th Century Fox will take to the stage at Cinemacon and be showing off footage from their upcoming slate of films. This includes Atila, Deadpool 2 and more importantly to us – The Predator. A head of that showcase Fox has sent around updated synopsis’ for those films:

“From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled Science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.”

 20th Century Fox Releases Official The Predator Synopsis Ahead of Cinemacon Showcase

Unless we’re mistaken this is the first actual official plot details to be released by Fox. Last year an early draft of The Predator leaked online and many of the details from that leak match up with the synopsis above.

We’ll be covering the footage that gets shown at Cinemacon. We don’t expect anything that gets shown there to be released online but the official Indonesian 20th Century Fox Twitter account recently confirmed that the trailer would be going online in May.

    While I get what you're saying, it's not. Your childhood memories are still intact and consist of two films and a slew of comics and merchandise.

    This film will not change that. If anything, it kills it's future.

    Here we go!

    Oh look, sort of a leak :D
  2. Original Predator
    The trailer starts in a neighborhood. It's Halloween. Kids are milling about. In one house, someone opens a package from JP Courier Co. The boy finds a Predator mask in it. He messes with some of the tech. He finds what he thinks is a ship but ultimately awakens a ship which crashes into earth. Holbrook is interrogated. He says he's a sniper and didn't see anything but Sterling K Brown knows he did. Holbrook says he feels like "an alien" on his own planet. Flashbacks of a chaotic chase through the woods flash by. Munn is a scientist, she rules that the species is upgrading on every planet it visits. Holbrook says "posing a threat is kind of the f---ing point." Predators wreak havoc in various locations using their claws to slice people, there's blood splatter, and the mask looks spot on. The chaos happen the woods and the lab. Holbrook has a team of what looks like mercenaries. Munn turns out to be pretty handy with a gun. Something she says she learned in America.

    Its all about execution? Hahaha, this synopsis sounds more like something for "Independence Day" or for some sort of post-apocalyptic invasion type of movie. Predator race should never ever made such a global attack of this size into the planet Earth itself, they are and ever should be the Hunters, and not some Warriors. At this point, I just only hope that this whole "Evil" agenda is strictly connected to the Bad Blood Predators only, and not for their entire Predator civilization as a whole. As a fan, I still want to see this movie. But these fundamental changes totally ruined my childhood memories already. After this movie, I will never look at the Predator as a character as same like before. Children with the major role in the R-rated story? Predators wearing silly human clothes? DNA modification cliche? Yeah >sure< its all about execution, even if we have all these over the top ideas, this isnt funny anymore.

    It's like they purposefully picked a synopsis with buzzwords to just piss Predator fans off. Genetically engineered, disgruntled Science teacher, young boy.

    I'm still waiting to see footage before I form an opinion but this isn't going to help with those out there that have already made up their minds.
