The Predator “The Official Movie Special” Behind The Scenes Book Released

A new behind the scenes book for The Predator released today from Titan Books. Similar to last year’s Alien Covenant: The Official Collector’s Edition, this book titled: The Predator: The Official Movie Special mainly features interviews with the cast and crew, but also included are a nice bunch of new unseen photos and concept art. You can order the book through Amazon (US / UK)

 The Predator

Check out a few scans below:

Among these images is a torso stand in for the “Upgrade” Predator in the film. This was likely used for lighting reference for the CGI artists to work with in post-production rather than as a planned practical effect of any kind. The Upgrade design appears slightly different here than what we see in the final film.

We also can see some concept art of the Project Stargazer facility, as well as the military guarding a Predator ship; likely from a scene that was cut from the film.

I would assume we’ll find plenty of other new photos and concepts in the more comprehensive behind the scenes book for the film landing next week: The Predator: The Art and Making of the Film. (Amazon US / UK)

    I cannot take it seriously in any possible way, rather as final joke in the film. These dreadloks ;D But just as concept art it looks really cool.

    Exactly. Plus Upgrading, evolving, climate change and the rest.....leave politicsand agenda's  out of it!!!!!!!!!
    Next thing we'll have genderfluid Predators......

    I know climate change is currently a hot button issue that spawns endless debate, but taking the real world out of it for a minute, in "Predator 2" they were already suggesting global warming was occurring due to unfettered pollution, so it's really not a newly added element to the fictional Predator timeline.  I just see the continual heating of the climate as consistent world building.

    Climate change and global warning can probably end lnto another ice ace, yes, it looks strange, but it is real, so no, its not a world building, even that its stupid.

    I guess we agree to disagree again! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    So a being that can travel via portals throw space and can find any planet decides to wait until polution extincs us... And they added also human dna to themself to breath oxigen, so they have to change all his respiratory system, blood system, celular metabolism..  This movie doesnt have any sense

    Aren't they kinda genderfluid already? They have pussy faces, wear jockstraps, got long hair, massive arms and pecks, fishnet outfit, collect trinkets... and spinal columns and kill like Rambo.

    iv had my 'art of the predator' book on pre-order from amazon and its been delayed 3 times now, havnt seen it in any shops here otherwise I would have cancelled the order. looking forward to get it.

    The franchise will not be dead, they will just make smaller movies again.

    That's the cool thing with Predator, you can put him in space, in world war, in vietman, in the desert, there are even possbile pirate storys out there.

    One thing i'm pretty certain about, they won't go with the Predator-Killer... which is OK in my book.

    when the kid mentioned the predator killer in the movie and they started opening it up...i thought shane black was going to walk out.

    That ship looks like what the Thomas brothers once described as "extraterestial hunter comes down to hunt and just jump in his pick up truck"

    Shame the artbook isn't containing more art like the ADI books did, but all is welcome.

    That Upgrade looks like it would bridge both The Predator with Predators more.
