Updated: The Predator Trailer Has Been Classified!

The Predator trailer has finally been classified, indicating that it’s release is imminent. Trailer Track are reporting that The Predator trailer has just (this afternoon) been classified by the German FSK – Germany’s classification board.

The upcoming trailer – which was recently screened for attendees at Cinemacon – will be 1 minute and 36 seconds in length and is rated suitable for everyone above the age of 12. It’s currently unknown if this will be the exact same trailer that was shown at Cinemacon but it’s a safe bet and thanks to those reports we have an idea of what to expect:

“The trailer starts off on Halloween with Jacob Tremblay’s character Rory playing with a toy box that has a toy alien ship inside of it. It’s revealed that he’s actually controlling a real alien spaceship somewhere else and that ship crashes onto Earth, releasing a lot of Predators into the wild.

The trailer then cuts to an interrogation room with Boyd Holbrook’s character, Quinn who is an expert sniper and the father of Rory. The sequence is intercut with shots of soldiers battling the Predators in a jungle – lots of gunfire and explosions and one of Predators holds one of the soliders up by the neck. Olivia Munn makes an appearance as scientist Casey Bracket and she states that the Predators are upgrading on every planet they visit. She is later seen handling a weapon.”

 The Predator Trailer Has Been Classified!

While we have no confirmed release date for the trailer yet, the official Indonesian 20th Century Fox Twitter account recently confirmed that the trailer would be going online in May. Given the usual delay between trailer classification and actual release, we expect to see it released sometime later this week. Trailer Track notes that it’s possible the trailer will be released very shortly (as in today).

The last time we had this wait on Alien vs. Predator Galaxy was the first Alien: Covenant trailer. It too was first classified on a Wednesday and was released on the following Monday. It also looks like the film will be known as Predator – Upgrade for its German release.

Thanks to Hollywood for the heads-up! Keep checking in with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on The Predator! You can follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram to get the latest on your social media walls. You can also join in with fellow Predator fans on our forums!

Update: According to popular Alien and Predator YouTuber, The Predator will be screened in front of Deadpool 2 as many of us have been speculating:

    Is this something we can take as certain?

    The actors aren't typically aware of the advertising schedule but perhaps he knows something? The bottom does look like a still though...

    Speak for yourself!  :P I'm a UKian and I don't. lol

    Where abouts, mate?

    I'm Northern (Liverpool) and we say "The Predator", "The Avengers",  "The ASDA" etc.

    Odd bunch, admittedly.

    I'm in the midlands. It's so weird to me to read "the ASDA". lol  :laugh:

    Another one!

    Even Mr H Reviews, paused for a long breath and his tone suggested this film is DOA.

    Drop the trailer so we can have a peek at how bad it is. I doubt said McGuffin will make an appearance, only things that make it look good. You know like human soldiers and Predators engaged in a war. That is all the "wow" we need.

    Mr_H is entitled to opinion and has made it quite clear. I'm going to wait to see the finished product before I make mine up.

    AVP-CAPCOM - Wait, man. . I was thinking that the boy is playing with the Predator wrist-gauntlet, and not some toy Spaceship? Im confused now. :-X

    How the plot synopsis made it past the "elevator pitch" stage is beyond me.
    This is a PREDATOR movie; not ET nor "its love-letter to Spielberg" Super-8* (*amazing film btw). I say that as Shane Black tried to quell the fanbash by defending his child lead comparing PREDATOR to ET.
    Also a magical toy spaceship that causes a real PREDATOR spaceship to crashland??????? Sound like Last Action Hero's magic ticket or The Last Starfighter's level of tweeness and facepalming.

    Right in time for Deadpool 2‘s release next week, we are delighted to report that the first trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator is now in the can and ready for an imminent launch. The piece was rated this afternoon by the German FSK and is expected online in the next week, if not in the next few minutes (if our previous experience with 20th Century Fox trailer classifications is to go by).

    I think they will use most of the casual scenes (nothing revolutionary as Predators in pants - if they are still in the movie?) the rest they will leave for the entire film. But, NOW, Im very excited! But Im also sad that they will (propably) release two versions of the trailer, we all want to see the real R-rated version. I have no idea what kind of feelings that trailer give me, I will be looking on that like Scientist on a dead body in mortuary, examining it from all available angles, I wonder how the whole camera take will looks like, the angles of camera positions etc. and of course the Predators, if we will see them in motion. :o

    I call P1 'The Predator' and I'm based in the UK.

    But I think this is the name for the trailer itself, and not the film.

    Going by the trailer-track link, 'The Film' is called 'Predator - Upgrade Trailer 5', and the 'Original Title' is "The Predator".

    I'm taking 'the film' to mean the film they've received to review. Presumably (in the past) they'll have received a hard copy of 'actual film and titled it accordingly for storage purposes etc.

    What were the others known as?
    Exact same titles.

    Predator
    Predator 2
    Predators

    I was afraid they would just drop the "The" (They did that with The Wolverine and The Terminator, for example) and call it Predator here, Upgrade is not the best title, but it is rather fitting.

    I'm actually wondering about the brazilian title, because here they tend to add "The" to titles that don't have them, and that's the case for the first Predator. "Predator" here is called "The Predator". So I'm wondering what they're gonna do with this one.

    Predator - Upgrade. . So, do I understand that properly? Is this the official name of the movie or the name for the trailer itself? If thats the real name for the movie, I am strongly dissapointed, it sounds like Predator Remake or something.

    In Germany.
    Where they also had Sterb Längsahm instead of Die Hard.

    Anyway, I'll see it when I see it. But it is a really unfortunate choice of words when it comes to marketing.

    The cinemacon trailer was described as "bloody" but this one is suitable for everyone above the age of 12. Could it be a green band version of the same trailer? 🤔

    Yes i think it's the most likely option, gonna have to wait a little more to see more blood and maybe hear some f**ks  :laugh:

    i hope we get a green band trailer and a red band one

    I thought they always release both green and redband trailers on the same days. Does the redband have to get classified before we see it?

    I'm not betting on the trailer dropping today but it'd be a pleasant surprise! Pretty good timing if you ask me, the Avengers stuff is starting to die down.

    Yeah, it fits. I was expecting them to drop "The" from the title for everyone about a year ago but I can't even think of an alternate tagline that sounds very good haha Upgrade isn't bad imo.
