Updated: ADI’s New Design for The Predator on Display at CineEurope

CineEurope 2018 is currently taking place in Barcelona. CineEurope is a closed event, open only to cinema exhibitors and their national associations. We usually hear tale of the various technologies or some exclusive footage shown but very rarely get to see it ourselves following the event.

Fortunately, we’re getting a look at The Predator statue that 20th Century Fox currently has on display at the event!

Since the teaser trailer’s release last month, we’ve been slowly getting better and better looks at Amalgamated Dynamic Inc’ new designs for Shane Black’s The Predator. This particular design is one of three different we know will be in the film.

We’ve just seen the new “Upgrade” Predator in the recent TV spot and prior to that we saw another design in leaked set photos. What do you think of ADI’s latest incarnation of the Predator? Thanks to ace3g and Jann ElderPredator for the spot!

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

Update 14/06/2018 – Replying to Alien vs. Predator Galaxy on Twitter, ADI co-creator Alec Gillis informed that us that ADI was responsible for creating the Predator suit under the armour. The new armour design is actually the creation of Quantum FX:

    Bad Bloods aren't just some interchangable concept. The Bad Blood Predator was a Predator Serial killer. He went on a rampage killing whatever got in his way without any of the rules at play at all. He was still a Predator though.

    The Supers are very clearly a different breed. Aside of a few pieces of similar tech, they look nothing like Jungle, City, Lost Tribe, the AVP or the AVP R Predators. Their head shapes and details are completely different. They are the wolves to the dogs.

    ^this. I can't accept the trio in predators as bad bloods, for they had their own concept (as I see, it was the random "I don't give a shit" concept. They were just plain dumb and careless)
    But there was one. In bad blood the hunter is a maniac. The opening panel's radio show speech clearly suggests that it's insane but at least has some serious problem.

    The trio was just a different breed with different ideology which was interpreted superior to the original, but in the end it was deeply flawed not only in concept but implementation. And to be frank, that's the movie's biggest mistake, as I see.

    Wysps it’s the only way to get round it!  ;D

    Stealth hunter , that’s sort of the way I seen it too .  A different sub species of predators that had gone rogue and become bad bloods.  There clearly was no honour to them , the way they held classic captive only to slaughter him in a unfair fight. It’s not the way classic would of gone about it , if it was the other way round. So I would argue they were definitely bad bloods, and personally I suspect mr upgrade in “The Predator” is one too.
  3. Stealth_Hunter
    Clearly a different breed or race of predator but wolves are more aggressive and better fighters compared to the average dog. The predators in Predators werent bigger or stronger than the classic.

    Better comparison would be German Shepherd to Rottweilers. Different looking but both large breeds, one is more athletically built while the other is stocky and powerful. Can't say one breed would win in a fight over the other every time.

    To be honest I agree it was sort of implied by Nolan they were bigger and stronger , I do think it was in there but was just poorly executed. However personally I always just assumed they were just a clan of bad bloods and nothing more , officially they are called Beserker, Tracker and Falconer , not the “Super Predators” we are talking about. All the merchandise that came out referred to them as their individual names I.e Berserker predator etc , however you look at it , the film was a rush job and to me a huge disappointment, I actually enjoy AVP more than predators and that’s saying something. There was so many illogical moments in predators, here’s an example , Royce says “ we need overlapping fields of fire” and makes a plan , only for them to walk off in the other direction. It just made no sense at all.  ::)

    When I rewatch the movie, this is what I convince myself of :laugh: It makes the movie much better in my opinion.  I just kind of forget about everything else and go with this.

    I'd say what we see in the film is more important than what the crew might have suggested off-camera, and the film never really implies they're supposed to be better or stronger. Just different.

    The case is, that is directly implied by Noland. And as the sole human they are meeting on the planet, he is kind of speaks for the movie. Yes, it was clearly suggested those 3 were better/stronger preds, the movie just failed to represent them as such.

    I'm simply going to repeat it.

    It was their intent. They did drop that intent into the final movie with Noland's dialogue and having Black behead Classic.

    Just because it sucks doesn't mean it isn't there. It just sucks.  They failed. They intended it, and it failed. No, it doesn't make sense. It's still there. They f**ked it up. But it's there. We all know there were several ways they could have done it better.


    This is why I hate the entire idea of ever going "The Predator is back, but this time it's got a wang the size of the panama canal!!!" The original creature is formidable enough.

    You keep saying that, but the line is there, it's in all the film's descriptions. Rodriquez and Antal wouldn't shut their mouths about their new "ipod" predators.

    I believe that "iPod" predators claim was simply referring to the creatures' design rather than their capability/supposed superiority. In the video below (at 31:25) the makeup effects designer, Greg Nicotero,  states RR and Antal requested the classic be referred to as the cassette tape version to the iPod versions that are the new predators. He added they needed to be "sleeker, elegant and fierce." Then he talks about how bigger isn't always better, so they kept the armor closer to the body, swept the dreadlocks to the back of the head and made it a point to have them look lean. None of that translates to capability during the hunt.

    So if they aren't bigger or distinctly stronger and aren't better killers based on visual evidence alone, what makes them super predators? Nolan saying the bigger ones hunt the smaller ones (which aren't actually smaller) between talking to his imaginary friend? I get what they were going for but the new predators didn't translate as better in any way, just different in design.

    If they showed one new predator kill like 3 classics then I might believe it was a super predator but we get nothing like that.

    Just like with The Predator, I haven't read anything (script, spoilers, just some official articles) about Predators before watching the movie. I have to say, that it was empasized that those hunters there are superb to the former version of the creature.
    Noland said the larger ones hunt the smaller ones, when talking about the feud. Berserker beheaded Classic, which is quite a symbolic move, as I see.

    But overall the performed much weaker against humans as the former hunters, also terrain known to them. So that was a shame to the whole concept. In light of that I'm interested how the upgrade will stand its ground in The Predator.
  12. Corporal Hicks
    I keep saying it because ultimately that's what happened. They may have prattled on about it and it may have been the intention but it's just not evident in the film. That one line means absolutely nothing when presented with the actual Predators. They're not "Super" in any sense. Nor are they the "Super Predators" from the script  - though that has made a re-appearance in the new one. It's definitely a failure on their part - especially if they intended to really put any of that across.
  13. OpenMaw
    That might have been the intent early on but it isn't really in the film. You've got one line of dialogue from Nolan that doesn't amount to much. They're not Super Predators as we all thought they'd be from the early script.

    You keep saying that, but the line is there, it's in all the film's descriptions. Rodriquez and Antal wouldn't shut their mouths about their new "ipod" predators.

    It was their intention, and since it's so muddled in the film only indicates that it was a failure. It has nothing to do with whether or not we had expectations going in. That aspect of Predators is an abject failure.

    Just having Berserker as the villain would have been cool.  Unfortunately, and I think I mentioned this before, they need to sell action figures.

    I've always maintained the biggest problem with Predators was how it totally wasted Fishburne's character. That could've been so interesting, but not only was the part written really poorly, Fishburne did nothing to convince me he'd been stranded alone and fighting for his life on this planet year

    He was too overweight to convincingly play a survivalist stranded on an alien planet for years.

    True.  His rich, smooth voice also didn't go with the character imho.  He just seemed really out of place in retrospect  :-\

    The film was a rushed job that really didn't get to fulfil some of it's more interesting angles. The Berserkers should have just been a single Predator for one thing. That said, I still love Predators. I have so much fun watching that and it teases at a lot of other potential things to do with the franchise.

    Single Predator would have been cool.

    I've always wanted to see a movie with two doing the hunting, but like setting traps inside traps, something about two just rings well with me. Maybe it was in a comic I read or something.

    Otherwise I thought it was pretty decent. Maybe not as memorable as the first two, but entertaining. Loved the look of Falconer, probably my favourite design after the Winston originals.
  18. Lionhart
    Hicks I totally agree, I think it's why I am not fan of this movie, I mean I can tolerate it, and watch it, but seeing how 3 preds lost to group of people like that was a underwhelming (I gueass a better action scenes would have saved it for me). I get the logic that this group of people is like team of 8 Dutches and Harrigans but they really didn't show it well in the movie.

    The movie is just a mess man. One Yakuza guy kills of the Falconer with ease. Royce running around and beating up Berserk, come on. It's a damn parody of a movie. Feels like the director's, producers, writers don't take movies serious anymore.

  22. azamultic
    Hicks I thing Rodrigez was calling them super preds or tougher ones, and Noland used the description like wolf and dog, if I am not mistaken. So I think at that time they were portraing them like more wild therefore stronger preds. But I agree, the movie didn't show that at all. They felt weaker to me compare to City Hinter, Jungle Hunter. 
  23. Corporal Hicks
    They're not Super Predators in the end. Nothing in the film portrays them as such.

    As a completely different clan or ethnicity or sub-species or whatever, I still really like the Berserker Clan. The jaw-bone thing looks pretty wicked and I dug the red skin colouration.
  24. Highland
    I love both masks, if you held a gun to my head I think I'd go P2 though, I like the Bronze colour.

    I've got both full size in the man cave. I don't mind this one, it's better than the Super Predators, I never really dug the bone thing.
  25. azamultic
    Joining to the team! Love the Duck face of City Hunter, and his desing too. Still think Predator 2 is very underrated. Even so agree that probably Stephen Hopkins not as talanted as John McTiernan.
  26. Corporal Hicks
    Yeah, I feel that. I like they haven't gone outrageous with him but something closer to the Bad Blood would have been cooler.

    Just more standardised armor from what we know right now. Although my bet is still on a certain tribe ór it being a human hybrid.

    I'm actually totally cool with the Predator Space Police having a different look to the original Predators, as long as you can still identify the Predator in the design(which you can). In Bad Blood the Enforcers were basically just the P1 design with a new mask.

    Assuming of course Captured is a space cop. I don't think anything in the early draft implies he is, just that he's
    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    Captured being a space cop would account for the well maintained/new looking equipment. Although, I don't see him giving hybrid the "kiss of midnight". It's going to take a group effort to pull that off.

    I'm leaning more towards a military but either works for me.

    I'm hoping Hybrid isn't portrayed as some roided out idiot who manages to get himself spotted or into public fights like abomination.
  28. Wysps
    My hope is that this Pred, if it is in the movie, is something like the Enforcers, showing up to rein things in at the end. Always loved the concept and design.

    Same here.  I've always wanted to see them somehow involved in the movies.  There's a lot of untapped potential there.  They're also essentially just Classics with better gear (no mutations, hybridization, etc.) so the characters themselves are in line with the originals.

    Is that really Captured though, or another Predator that they may have added after the revisions?
  29. OpenMaw
    The Enforcers from Bad Blood basically.

    Haven’t read it but I’m intrigued. Never got into comics in general though, I’ve read a couple AVP ones but wasn’t that impressed as they never seem to have enough details for me.
