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.”

    It's specially interesting to see Black letting us know how he's fully aware of possible fan backlash and just what they will backlash. Another reason why I think we shouldn't go assuming we know everything about the movie and how it will portray the Predators, and the plot. I can't wait to see this.

    The more I see of the Fugitive Predator, the more I love the design. Just...perfect, also the more I like it, the more I am losing my f**king mind over this Upgrade Predator bullshit.

    This is not how you "return the classic creature to former glory". Ruin it sure.

    Will looks like complete crap. It's all bells and whistles with zero substance. Character designers today are suffering from marvel shades, in which everything they design looks like a marvel movie suit. Not a single unique creative bone left in their bodies.  Such a shame a wasted opportunity

    Idk, I think the suit looks good for this movie. Not what I'd expect for a Predator but I'm totally OK with this being a one time thing. It suits what we expect for this particular Predator in any event. (Now going forward, yeah I'd hope for some more traditional suits.)

    Sigh... So upgrade is really the result of trying to make the Predator scary again. That's... disappointing. So what happens after this Movie? Upgrade obviously won't be scary anymore. What's gonna be the next step for the evolution of the Predator? Are they gonna adapt the four armed Predator from the comics? Will the next one be a cyborg, half machine/half Predator? Kaiju Predators?!

    I fear we're gonna end up with another 10 year hiatus after this Movie.

    Yeah, I side-eyed that part of the article, too. It doesn't seem very creative to say "in order to make this deadly, mysterious alien hunter scary and threatening and interesting, we have to just make a BIGGER and BADASS-ER version!" It feels like style over substance.

    Complaints aside, that dim photo of him in the ship looks great, very atmospheric. I'm not sure if the mask seems a bit small, or if it's just the angle...? I brightened it up to get a better look and you can see the bottom of his mandibles and everything. Of course I love the shot of him wrecking people in the lab, really looking forward to those scenes.

    I can't say I'm a huge fan of the design. It's not bad looking at all, I just prefer less armor on the Predator. From the script tho, the stuff at the Stargazer lab was some of the best parts.
    Spoiler
    I really liked when the Predator kills one scientist, cuts off his head and hand to get through the door scanners and even mimics his the scientist's voice as well. It's like something straight out of the recent AVP game

    Is it just me or does he have the beginnings of some graying dreds?  Even the NECA figure shows some grey on the ends of his dreds.

    I can't speak for the NECA figures, but in the magazine it could just be lighting. I haven't noticed graying in any of the other images uploaded so far, not that I'd be opposed  :) I sort of like the idea of having a slightly older and wiser Predator take the lead.

    Yeah if humans in sci-fi films can somehow fire alien weapons, why wouldn't a Predator be able to fire a rifle? 😂

    Does he have enough tiny-thin finger to pull the trigger? :P
    Or maybe he will use his talon to do that. ;D How comic would it be? :P :D ;D

    lol possible. how cool would it be if a human gets his hand melted or burnt off the moment he touches predator weaponry

    I agree von but it seems like all the naysayers are no longer naysayers. Funny that....

    as long as people are talking about the movie, it's all good! curiosity and mystery will draw in the crowds. here's hoping it'll be a reasonable hit critically and commercially!
