Entertainment Weekly Shares New The Predator Still

Entertainment Weekly has shared nearly 30 exclusive stills from films that will be receiving some focus at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con. And that means we’ve got a brand new The Predator still!

It’s a part of the film we’ve seen before, especially prominent in the trailers and seen recently in some stills released by Empire Magazine last month. This new still gives us a much clearer look at the details of the Predator suit. Note the lack of “backpack” or housing from the shoulder cannon. This one seems to be mounted directly on the armour.

    chatted with Black about why he dove back into the Predator universe, finding his own cast instead being a part of it, and if there’s room for more films.

    I'm in total agreement that our concepts of gender-based personality or behavioral traits don't automatically apply here. Not only are they an alien species, they have a vastly different culture. If we ever see female predators on screen, I'd personally be happy if it the audience learns it at the beginning and then story moves along without it being really relevant and without a big show of "looky here at the lady predator!" It doesn't have to be a big deal.

    Its just lazy and the most unimaginative thing possible to slap tits on something just to call it female. It's some of the worst trash to come out of the fan fiction. The other ways to depict sexual dimophisim especially with something that is clear not mammalian.  It just has a humanoid body shape. It's not human nor need tits to feed tits young.

    It’s alien so the argument that they are reptiles is moot too. As far as we can visually see, from the films’ standpoint, they have just as many similar characteristics  to mammals/primates as they do to reptiles. I can respect people wanting to keep it more mysterious and unfamiliar because they’re  ALIEN, but saying that people are unimaginative because they speculate it could be similar is stupid. Though giving them gigantic breasts would be ridiculous- no doubt.

    Exactly. How would we know if all the predators we've seen thus far weren't females? It just doesn't matter. I think some things should just remain a mystery.

    Because the creators have referred to them as male. Because they possess very strong masculine traits.

    The creators probably referred to them as male because of their strong masculine traits. There is nothing so far in the film canon that differentiates a male from a female predator ( if sex/gender even applies ). I agree, very strong masculine traits in comparison to male humans, but they're aliens so it doesn't necessarily apply. I tend to agree that they're probably male ( call it human bias ), but I'm willing to allow the mystery of their sexual identity to continue in my own mind.  ;D

    But the whole male or female concept with strong male or female traits, is a very human concept to begin with... Who says it would apply to an alien ?

    Yes - I don't see the whole "well they have clear masculine traits" as being a strong argument for them all being male.  I agree that they probably were, but I'd think it's due to the fact that the creators never gave Predator sex/gender much thought.  My only frame of reference is what has been shown in the printed media, which tends to show the males and females as identical.  But since we're dealing with a different species on another planet, anyone's guess is viable imo.  Sure, reptiles don't have mammalian organs on Earth.  Who's to say it's the same thing on their planet?  It could go either way honestly.  We would just have to throw out our conception of what "males" and "females" actually mean or "reptiles" and "mammals", here in our neck of the woods.

    The leaked script also alludes to the fact that the Pred is a 'male', IIRC.

    Spoiler (click to show/hide)
  8. PredBabe
    Sterling K. Brown’s character, an agent who actually gets to be in the lab, does refer to Captured as a “him” in the trailer.  “We found him in Mexico.”


    I think Keyes refers to CH as a “he” as well. Of course you can argue that he was using his human bias but maybe they caught CH taking a leak.

    Doesn't matter if this, or the previous hunters were female or not imho.
    Does it take away of any of the cool factor they have? Or does it lower the quality of the design? (p1,p2, partially avp:r)
    I don't get it.

    Never thought about it, but these latest posts made me think.
    How absurdly funny it would be if Dutch and his whole macho crew were massacred, by a girl... :D
  11. Wysps
    I actually thought the Predator might be female as well when I saw it.

    Wouldn't bother me, I dunno what the big deal is. Maybe the original is a female?

    #mindblown

    Me too, and honestly I don’t care a whole lot if it is or isn’t. I imagine that eventually we’ll get a female Predator, or it’ll be disclosed that one of the ones we’ve already seen was a female. Not a big deal, other than to maybe satiate curiosity or get a larger picture of the Predator species.
  12. OpenMaw
    They're both dudebros.

    I honestly don't get how people are seeing tits on this guy. Those are pectoral muscles under pectoral armor.

    Is this like how everyone used to get weird about Ricardo Montalbon's chest in Wrath of Khan?
  13. PredBabe
    If it is female, Im done with these movies. Female predators are the dumbest things to come out of fan fiction and are always depicted in the most absurd, wanker-esque manner possible. Its just an excuse to put tits on a predator. It reeks of the lack of imagination and is based on zero biological reasoning. Its just terrible. There is no reason story or otherwise to go down that path. NONE. That not what the movies are about. IF you wanted to hint at a gender specific one, it should be done without big or small breast, and human ideas of sexuality. Thats just a perverts fantasy. It should be depicted in the manner that a male and female frog or lizard are almost indistinguishable. Humanoid body make up or not. It does matter. The biology of reptiles and amphibians has no need for breast. The predator is a creature closely related to those.

    Doesn’t seem so clear cut to me.

    In regards to the actual movie, I think they’ve already established Captured is a male unless there’s a twist coming our way. You gotta think they’ll throw some sort of remark in there with the body scans in the lab.
  14. yautjapet
    I'm not sure why you'd need a specific "reason" for a predator to be female. It could just totally be a non-issue, she happens to be female, end of story. Female beings exist, there's no "reason" for it. And though big bouncing boobs would bother me, I'd be okay with small breasts (it depends on whether you take the books as canon or not, but there are hints to indicate female predators do in fact have breasts.)

    Sir we already saw in earlier images that there is no breasts on captured predator, why you ranting about boobs?  :)

    If captured is a female then wouldnt that make it almost the same as a male? There are no breasts...

    I mean captured isnt female but your rant generally makes no sense.

    Yeah, in terms of engineering the suits, none of the masked Predators have the mandibles under neath. It's just extra bulk and would make it difficult for the performers.

    When Jungle Hunter and City Hunter have their masks removed there's a cut between the mask being "on" and the 'removal" where the mask is basically just laying over the top of the full face. The magic of film making....  :laugh:

    Exactly, and I do think that the actual face of the predator(Jungle Hunter, City Hunter) doesnt fit inside the helmets/masks. But the faces of AVP 2004 predators do fit, the way they fold their mandibles is different, therefore they can fit the face under the mask. here is the differences.

    one wrong photos.

    I hate the new bio.  It's too small,  doesn't fit properly and is just piss poor design all together. 
    It's shallow, like they just tilted and squashed the face horizontally. Most people don't realize how far those mandibles protruded...

    I think shapewise from the side is almoust the same as the Jungle Hunter, and I do believe that all others predator's masks aren't fitting perfectly for the predator face. I was sculpting predator mask on top of predator face, and it never fitted upper mandibles, I tried to find refrence photos, where it showed how upper mandibles fits under predator mask, but I didn't find nothing, and every time somebody puts a mask on Kevin Peter Hall, or on the toy, the do take away the mandible parts first, and after put a mask. Kavin Peter Hall didn't have mandibles, when he was wearing mask, and Hot toys and sideshow just have an option where you can just take of mandibles and put on mask.

    I think adi has been cutting corners and reusing old molds, reusing old builds from AvP. The Rez aliens have reappeared twice in the AvP movies.

    While it's true Paul WS Anderson wanted a more "attractive" Predator and AvPR likely had a shit budget to go with its shit script and shit directors now was the time to go all out and rebuild their Predators from the ground up. In many ways I take my hats off to ADI for staying in the game in times like these but this is just sloppy work. Shane Black has his faith share of the blame too. A canny director would have caught this early on.

    Plasmacaster on the predator's shoulder like a magnet on the refrigerator door. Well, how did they come up with this? >:(This is nonsense and quite inconvenient for shooting with active actions.
  23. azamultic
    Master 10 feet is the Upgrade one, this is Captured, he is supossed to be somewhere same as the first two predators, but I think he is much shorter than Kevin Pitter Hall.

    PS Kevin Peter Hall*


    Also I really wasnt fan of bulky predators in AVP, so if he is more cut than buff I am totally fine with that, the city hunter and Jungle hunter werent very muscle developed guys compare to super heroes from AVP.
  24. yautjapet
    Yeah, I wouldn't say Jungle Hunter or City Hunter were ultra beefy or anything...? At least not drastically bigger than Captive appears to be. That is one thing I like about AvP:R, that lean and stealthy look Wolf had.
