Empire Releases Two New The Predator Stills!

Last Friday Empire unveiled it’s really cool Predator focused subscriber cover art for it’s upcoming issue! That issue should be arriving through the doors of subscribers today and in it is a new feature on The Predator. To help wet our appetites Empire has released two new exclusive stills!

The need for that new armour? Not just a group of human mercenaries trying to protect suburbia, but the arrival of a new, upgraded super-Predator. “The challenge became to make it frightening,” writer-director Shane Black told Empire. “’Cause upon that hinged everything — whether you bought our heroes going up against him and felt a real threat for them. We had to invent a scenario in which the Predators were mysterious and scary again.”

    Man the upgrade design has to be probably one of the most unimaginative and boring one in the predator movie history. Simply awful. And the fact it looks like it is CGI adds to the dumpster fire.
    Im totally agree, I think is dumb, lets make it bigger, yeahh, remove the armour, hulk doesnt need armoir, remove the helmet, and the canon..
    But sir black, the predator most iconic thing its the armour helmet, weapons and the mouth,,
    Thats true, we have to change the mouth as well..
    Stil dont believe how boring the upgrade design is, the wolf looks more pred menacing than this turd, a tiny agile heavy armour pred is the way..

    "Predator and Shane review the shot. Predator wants another go so he can throw the security guard "properly.""

    The Predator looks much bigger there than in the picture where Boyd's character is being lifted up.  I know they're probably the same Predator (no indication otherwise), but it sort of looks like two different ones - even the hue of the skin looks slightly different.
    Oh the marvel of using colored lights...

    I must admit i'm looking forward to the bright pink helicopter with the pin-up girl on it.
    Might be the best character in the movie. :)

    Upgrade concept is just typical Hollywood BS. "That thing you liked in the first movie but bigger, explodier and more computer generated." Like the Mega Death Star in Force Awakens.  Sorry Upgrade fans, but that's just how it is...

    One interesting thing to know about AVP Requiem on PSP is that they tried to fuse the two design styles into one ship. They had the central chamber from Predator 2, but also the long tunnel catwalk from AVP. It showed just how terribly they clashed and didn't even feel like the same species.

    The ship in Predator 2 was as if someone had taken an Alien cave and strapped space engines to it. So spooky and cool.

    Or because it doesn't look like the Aztec-inspired spaceship interior that was the single coolest thing in P2, one of the most unique ship interiors for an alien organism ever, and has never been repeated in any of the movies for no discernable reason.

    Oh I miss that ship interior. And only the old avp games made the predator ships/bases with that design too. Everything since AVP(2004) made their ships with generic corridors. What a shame.

    It's truly a shame they never used Predator 2 artistic language. It was so unique for alien race, and nope, they went pretty generic for all other Predator installments( not hating on all other designs, but they did feel less unique compare to Predator 2). Or it could be my subjective opinion. But I loved the hell out of Predator 2 design(Ship, Armor, Face, Colors). But I really like this armor with this lighting and camera position(Actually it looks pretty interesting too). Kind of reminds me of Star Gate.

    Yeah it is disappointing that no other movie has followed up with the Aztec look of the ship in P2. It was one of the cooler things established for the creature lore in that movie. It was eerie and mysterious with that misty atmosphere. Of course we can say different ships for different predators/occasions but still wish they would stick with a similar concept.

    Maybe the ship in P2 is like the Millennium Falcon of Predator ships. “Blow that piece of junk out of the sky!”

    I get all that, but every design after has been boring and generic sleek sci-fi corridors. It's really uninspired after the second film showed us the potential.

    It was a really cool design indeed, but it could also be different more than 20 years after. Also different predators, different styles maybe ? From what we saw i tend to prefer P2's design but i'll wait to see the movie in motion to fully make my mind about it.

    I still don't know what it is. But if it's anything like "short guy syndrome" I don't see how it applies.  ;)

    It's in line with "check your privilege" and "male shit-lord" and "oppressive patriarchy."

    Good lord i couldn't agree more with you !

    The first pic is cool though i dont like the AVP style scenery, the second one looks too sterile :/

    Eh i guess it looks like an AVP scenery, since it doesn't take place in a jungle or a big city...

    I think y'all reading way too much into this, or simply missing the point.

    Yeah, the likes of Ripley and Sarah Connor had to learn, yeah a lot of people in the U.S don't know how to use guns, that's all good and true, but it's not really Olivia's point. We're talking about movies, how this stuff is handled in fiction. Olivia's point is that in a movie, when it comes to a character that doesn't particularly links back to guns on a surface level like, say, a scientist, if it's a male character nobody will bother to wonder how they know to handle a gun, they just accept that he does - now if it's a female character, storytellers and studios will often feel the need to explain how she learns to handle the weapon (that if she's not completely helpless), or make her into a Lara Croft-esque heroine who's just so absurd at it that that's it - they think that the audience may not accept that she's just a woman that happens to know how to use a gun the same way they do with male characters. And she's not wrong. Nowadays less movies do that than they used to, but it's undeniable.

    She didn't say any of that. She told a person to check their microagressions. So her intended point is lost in the shuffle ,and it's not much of a point because it's an assumption about the entire audience.

    I do happen to wonder, depending on the context, how some random asshole picks up military hardware and just magically seems to know how to work the action and safety.

    At this point "microaggression" is seeming to translate into

    "find something small and insignificant and be aggressive about it, by saying it's an issue, even tho it's not"

    Like getting wound up over someone using the term "microaggression" huh?

    Making an observation of irony (Munn working for the industry she dispises and blanketing fans with a made up term) is far from "wound up".

    Opining on a forum.

    Good try tho.
