    I liked a few things with AVP... the idea/premise being one, just the ideas were not executed right... AVP was a movie that had potential but just failed. It left a bad taste in my mouth and this trailer, well moments in this trailer just remind me of the AVP movies... crashing ship for one. AVP aside, this is a poor trailer. Very disappointed... but still looking forward to this movie. I do have faith in Shane Black.

    I agree, the tone was also not correct, the middle of the movie is like they are wandering about on the same set painted differently. The moving pyramid had tons of potential.

    Eh, just use the same two sets a million times, it'll be fine!

    Don't forget to cut to computerized maps for absolutely no reason.

    The pyramid was constantly shifting. We wouldn't want the audience to get lost in there.  ;)

    Or we need to patch over obviously missing footage... *cough*ResidentEvil1*cough*

    And yes, the “polished” look is concerning. 
    Might have worked well for Nice Guys or something where the story takes place in a Vegas casino, but Predator...?

    That’s why I loved the Sabacc scene in Solo, a single bug zapper style lightbulb over the table.  Atmosphere was fantastic

    This is something JJ Abrams hasn’t figured out either:
    LESS IS MORE

    Here's what I would have done for the teaser.

    Shots of the jungle. Maybe throw in a little of "The Chopper."
    Holbrook on his mission. Intense. Scope shots.
    Cut to kid at home, with box.
    Holbrook searching through scope. Looking for his target. Sonic boom.
    Kid slicing box with box cutter.
    Ship crashing, Holbrook trying to evade.
    Kid peels back flaps.
    Holbrook moving through the wreck. Predator clicking sound.
    Kid pulls out the mask.

    THE PREDATOR.
    And dependent on effects shots that usually end up being finished last.

    I must say Im extremely disappointed in the trailer. It looked like a generic mindless modern action flick for me. I cant judge movies by the trailers and Ive learned a long time ago not to do it but this doesnt look promising
  11. Highland
    Yeah there's not many "ah ha it's Predator" moments. It's sort of just plays like "what's this... Oh it's another Predator film"

    The structure of the trailer is quite bad. Actually it might just straight up be the worst trailer between the films of recent time. Not because the movie looks bad, just that nothing really happens.

    I like the comment that says "The moment you realise it's not a fanmade trailer". Totally spot on.

    I'll be honest, I went to see deadpool 2 yesterday and they played the predator trailer. It felt like a lighthearted popcorn movie. All of the trailers they played were terrible except for Mission Impossible which I felt they edited very well. The mission impossible trailer focused on the aspects of what we all know to be the heart of the movie, which is incredible action scenes. The predator trailer was childish and too light hearted for what a predator movie should be. I've read the early script and seen the trailer when it dropped, and seeing it on the big screen gave me a lackluster feeling. I'll still go see the film in theaters for support of the franchise but I have little faith in what this film will provide to the franchise.
  13. MudButt
    Yes, as well as that Bob Ross video that showed snippets of footage at the end. Deadpool is a marketing anomaly though because part of what makes that franchise is how much they market it and the type of marketing campaign they do for those movies. So it's a much different animal and probably isn't the best comparison for what they may do with The Predator. I think Alien: Covenant is the example to look at.

    We got our first look at footage from the film on February 9th from DP2, then we got our first full trailer on March 22nd, followed by a final trailer on April 19th. Generally big blockbusters get a teaser and two full trailers, however lately studios like Disney and even Fox have only put out two trailers total, a teaser and a trailer usually. Our first trailer for The Predator which was a TEASER was released on May 10th, it has only been 20 days. So like I said, it's possible we can get one by end of June or early July. It wouldn't make sense to release a full trailer so soon after the teaser. The earliest point would be in time for Jurassic World 2 since that's the next BIG movie, and that releases June 22nd. But my guess would be with Mission Impossible or Ant-Man and the Wasp. Those come out in July which is where I think they'll drop it.

    Wrestling with the basic core of the movie is the hard part.  I can imagine how difficult it’ll be to go into the movie with the mindset of giving it the fair shot that it needs (or deserves) when all this time we’ve been formulating opinions based on what they’ve provided us, imo.  Hoping that if Shane maintains the original suspense/horror elements and doesn’t veer off too deep in the clinical side (which judging by the leaked content I don’t know...) then it’ll be enough to satisfy the casual movie goer and give us more films in the near future.  That’s all I want  :'(
  16. MudButt
    Yep.

    I think people just have to be ready for the basic core of what came from the leaked script/plot leaks/set photos. The bigger issues for me was how insane it got in the third act and a lot of the dialogue. It'll come down to execution for a lot of this. It can only go so far for some people, which can be evidenced by how people have expressed their opinion on here about what we have heard and seen.

    Like I have said, I'm going to have faith but I have no problem calling it a bad movie if it turns out to be one.
  17. JungleHunter87
    On the whole though, I think ultimately it’s gonna come down to what Hicks and Co. said on the Podcast. Execution, Execution, Execution.

    If Black can’t manage the jokes while juggling the suspense, horror and action. Then it’s not gonna be pretty.

    On the flip side of that, if he can utilize the jokes in a way that doesn’t distract your attention from the film itself. Well, he’ll have overcome a very big hurdle, that allot of fans fear he’s incapable of.

    Again watching those movies in the year 2018.  Is a completely different circumstance of study and analysis.

    I honestly cannot accept that anyone ever thought Commando was a serious movie...

    I watched 3 minutes of it on tv once, and had to change the channel. It was just too much. As for the modern analysis angle, I think films like Predator would be the main example for this type of thing. Something that was initially meant to be, and was seen as scary or thrilling.
  19. Original Predator
    People are strange.

    Not really.

    If you ask me, the minigun is no less comedy than the final act of Commando.

    Again watching those movies in the year 2018.  Is a completely different circumstance of study and analysis.

    My dad brought my mom to that movie and to this day recalls the entire theatre on edge, could hear a pindrop, along with my mom bruising my dad's arm from squeezing constantly during the film.

    I can’t speak to if the Pentagon was thinking about developing a portable handheld M134 in the 80’s. But, I’m pretty confident in saying that was not the reason for it’s inclusion in the first film. However, I’m open to being corrected.

    Maybe not the M134, but they were very interested in turning the minigun concept into a portable platform. I do remember them mentioning this only briefly in one of the BTS videos for Predator. Jesse Ventura talks about it for a second.

    It just never worked out. Trying to shrink things down to make it practical gutted the overwhelming fire power, and besides the amount of fire power was actually... ultimately wasteful.


    Though they did eventually, decades later, pull it off with the XM556.

    Ol' Painless has a little brother.



    Yeah some people laugh at strange things. My reactions when I first saw Predator were "oh shit" to most of those things. The handshake between Dutch and Dillion had me go bug eyed. "Gawd-dam!"

  21. Original Predator
    The minigun isn't really that funny. It's ludicrously over the top, but the general reaction is usually "f**k yeah!" rather than people getting torn out of the film splitting their sides with laughter.

    I saw Predator in a packed cinema just a while back, and the place roared with laughter whenever that thing was fired on-screen.

    Other big belly-laughs I can remember off the top of my head included Dutch and Dillon's "handshake", most of the shootout in the jungle camp, Dillon stripping off and joining in with the sweaty muscle tree-hauling and Dutch screaming into the jungle to get ol' Pred's attention.

    Right- so 30 some years later....you can look back and see the "funny" aspects of the 80's machismo playing out (as with most movies in that era).  At the time tho, AND upon very first watch, wasn't the case at all. 

    So your statement actually has some severe flaw in it.
  22. Original Predator
    You guys remember the mini gun carried a "purpose" for the movie, it was used in a specific scene to create a scenario that really turned the tide (ultimately created more build) in the movie for the audience and the team, that what they were dealing with wasn't normal.

    It seems at this point "humor" is an opinion based on over-analytical pickiness towards meaningless aspects of film.

    Good news is Black as confirmed in "Collider" that the humor won't be too much as it's not meant to be a "comedy" of any sort:

    “I think the reason there’s a lasting quality that the original movie has that’s due I think, in part to the fact that it was made before it was so easy to just do a bunch of CGI effects and before video games had taken hold as well. So, there was a more visceral kind of war movie thriller-esque quality to the material.

    It [The Predator] is ultimately gonna be a thriller. It’s not gonna be a comedy. It’s an R-rated movie and it’s supposed to be a kind of harrowing experience. I think it goes to what Fred and I are very familiar with, which is, if you told me to write a comedy I’d be helpless, but if you say write a thriller and put some jokes in it, then fine. Then, I don’t have to worry… it’s that sort of combination and tone shuffling that becomes at once the juggling act and also the challenge, but the joy too of what we’re trying to do.”
