The newest issue of Empire Magazine will be hitting the shelves this Thursday. However, subscribers to the magazine have been receiving their early copies today. There’s a small feature on The Predator in the latest issue and with it a brand spanking new still from The Predator!

 New The Predator Still In Latest Empire Magazine!

You can clearly see the Samurai influence that costume designer Trish Monaghan previously spoke about during Den of Geek’s set visit.

When Trish Monaghan shows us the new armor she’s designed for the Predator, for instance, it has a medieval quality to its design, as if it belongs to a ritualized order of knights. One element she is particularly proud of is his new armor his back-flap, evoking feudal Japan.

“It’s a bit Samurai, so it was able to cover, so he wasn’t too exposed,” she says of how it covers some of the musculature in the legs while still showcasing the familiar shape of what Schwarzenegger memorably deemed to be “one ugly motherfucker.”

    I love to think that the males completely respect their females though and act inferior when they’re around.  ;D

    There's (one of the only) a great scene in AVPR (I know, I said that.) Where Wolf put's his hand on the mask of a fallen comrade and he makes this... I don't know it sounds like a submissive dog mixed with a cat purring, sound... That sound is the exact sound I hear when I read this.

    I really love that moment. And I can dig the idea of yautja females having more of the upper hand when it comes to both relationships, whatever they might be, and their culture.

    I'm on board with that too.  I thought that scene was extra special because it actually added solid characterization to the Predator main, which imo was lacking in both AVP's.  (Also, it's good evidence that they're capable of feeling sadness and empathy.)  I hope we get some more moments like that in The Predator.

    Precisely! They use their hunting trips to escape from their nagging, domineering women.  :laugh:

    AVPR did well with Wolf’s portrayal. The beginning scenes with him and then the power plant scene were the best moments, for me, from the movie.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a female predator on another planet or even their home world. I just think it’s more the males who really take part in the hunt, but my perception is primarily due to the fact that the original writers of Predator had envisioned a brotherhood of hunters traveling the galaxies for these hunts. I’d imagine a female would only get involved if the situation were very serious or involved their baby... but of course execution is key with however they decided to depict them in a movie. Love the idea of them being draped in pelts though.

    Please next they'll be talking about making a predator lgbt. Keep the female predators in comics the only one that worked was big momma

    Doubtful.

    Hum yeah... I'm positive they cut stuff, but i won't go into further explanation...  ;)

    Lorena Bobbitt style, or...?

    Don't know what it was, checked it, and thanks to you my wee hurts now  :laugh:

    That was horrifying  :-[

    I hope not. I really hope not, and i'm not really seeing it myself, but hey, one never knows.

    I've seen a few good Predator female designs, but then they get to the chest and it's like they can't help themselves.

    I keep saying look at viking women or American Indian wardrobe. That's where you can see an influence that makes sense and from that you could design a female predator that isn't a glorified sex object with a monsters head on it. I mean, Predators have big heads to begin with yet somehow some of these artists still give them boobs that rival the size of their heads. It especially doesn't make sense if you're trying to design a warrior or a hunter kind of a character. They'd have that shit taped or strapped down.

    Maybe they rewrote the script so Captured and Upgrade are actually married and this whole thing is a Predator divorce settlement.

    I have definitely noticed this phenomenon :D From what we've been shown so far in the mythos, traditional Predator style is tribal, so it'd make sense to keep both sexes in line with that aesthetic.  I actually really like the idea of the females being akin to the viking women, with furs and such.  Chests definitely get in the way of certain movement (that's why leotards are so tight, to make sure nothing is moving around while you're doing jumps, etc.  Hell, that's the point of sports bras.) It would only make sense to bind if they're heading into the heat of battle and swinging from trees, roundhouse kicking.  Don't understand the fixation on the grossly disproportionate Predator females in fanart, but my inkling is that if they were to ever make an appearance on the screen, it'd probably be similar to those ::) And I'll suffer through it with one, drawn out laborious sigh.

    I think captured wanted to keep the car, but upgrade disagreed gently  :laugh:

    Hopefully they’ll realize it’s only fair to cut everything down the middle.

    The virus has spread. Even the the Predator forum isn't safe! Run for the hills and save me a thigh since I'm certain that is still a chick predator.

    It's thigh fever, apparently :laugh:  Resistance is futile.

    I agree by the way, I think there's still a chance it could end up being female.  The way the chest piece is laid continues to be highly suspect.  In some angles, the "pecs" are more like protrusions.  Of the breast variety.

     :laugh:

    I don’t see the bewbs but I guess the armor does have a funny rounded design to it. Captured’s chest looks flat in the first Empire picture (not to mention the bulge...), and then the one where he/she/it has McKenna we see the chest armor silhouette.

    The agent refers to Captured as a “he” in the trailer but I could totally see them having Casey make some observation that states otherwise to show up the agent... and then I’ll roll my eyes.

    I hope not. I really hope not, and i'm not really seeing it myself, but hey, one never knows.

    Thick thighs save lives.

    Absolutely. I’m a thigh girl myself.

    Girl thighs or guy thighs?

    I'm a girl thigh girl.

    Guy thighs are how I fly.

    I’m a straight up leg gal myself. A guy leg gal. And back. Strong hands are a plus too. A nose with character is also hard to overlook. What were we talking about again?  :laugh:

    People of course... most certainly not the humanoid space alien!  <_<    :D

    I always notice with ADI that the mask doesnt seem to go up high enough on the top of the head, does anyone know if its always been like that? I noticed it in the avp films but i dont remember it being like that in predators or P1 & 2

    it actually makes more sense that way. the mask would be perfect fit if the predator had a flat face but we all know that isn't the case!

    Cool animation! And I kind of dig that he's barefoot. I think I like the idea of such stealthy hunters being able to move and climb and jump better without shoes.


    classic predator sandals to be more exact XD

    He’s gotta put some tenni runners on or he’ll catch a cold.

    On a side note though, their feel make me laugh. They’re just so big.  :D

    Guy also has super good posture.  Feet, hips, shoulders stacked, core engaged, knees slightly bent.  I wonder how many takes it took to get it just right ;D  But on another note, I actually prefer the sandals to barefoot.  He looks like he has some stirrups going on...

    I can only imagine. He’s got a nice pair of legs, look at those calf muscles!  ;D

    I kind of get a Silent Hill vibe from that shot, with the school and all. It actually looks kind of eerie.

    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    Yeah, especially with the smoke and those floating things.  They did mention in the interviews adding more of a horror element to the film, so maybe that scene will be on the creepier side and less, idk, The Faculty.

    In P1&2 almost the whole head was covered and in predators also. Liked it better that was.

    Why? Those masks are made for a different species, their proportions should be able to meet different requests. I think it's better if more parts are covered.
