Cinematographer Larry Fong Talks The Predator

British Cinematographer have posted an interview with The Predator’s cinematographer Larry Fong in which he talks about his work on the film, his collaboration with Shane Black and some of the technical details on how he shot the film.

“I’d have to say that a lot of my past projects have been very visual, which of course is a cinematographer’s dream. But as I began to get to know Shane and explore what his vision of The Predator was, I realized that although the visuals were important, they weren’t nearly as important as the story and the characters. And by the way, one might think I’d be disappointed, but that’s not true. The visuals serve the story and the director’s vision; that’s cinematography 101. It’s always a challenge finding the sweet spot of what the look should be.”

    *immitating Jack Sparrow* "why the dreads?!"

    Why the whole concept itself...
    I think it's un wise to hinge the franchise on the comic book plot, but the dreads were the worst idea to it all, besides the canons being as big as logs.
    Dear: Shane Black

    You were Great in the First Predator Movie, but we wanted you to know that the Predator already owns a pair of Stark Industries Iron-Pred Suits

    01. Predator Blazer

    02. Predator Hydra

    From AVP Extinction 2003 Video Game

    A "hero" suit is just a higher quality, close-up friendly suit. From the BTS pictures they did have their masks off at some point so yeah, they probably had fully animatronic faces, too.

    Funny thing is; these "Friendly Predators" had alot more to do in the "Shane Black" version of the movie. Hell, they even created HERO suits (read: expensive ones) for 'em.
    were? What hero suites.
    In early behind the scenes photos, the friendly predators wore camo pants of sorts.  There was a mild uproar about it.
    ya I saw them. But they looked more like stunt suits. By hero I'm thinking fully animatronic face.

    They were new suits for the Emissaries. Each had a unique paint job on there too. One was even purplish.

    Are these images uploaded anywhere?  Would like to take a peek.
    yes in the gallery I assume.

    Dear Lary Fong. You are the cinamatographer. Yes, the characters are more important... but your job is all about the look of the film... thus the visuals of the film should be your priority... not the characters. Leave that to the writers.

    The part we saw was essentially just the end of the scene that got cut. It was originally a longer scene introducing her, and it's very noticeable how abrupt it is in the final version.

    QuoteBTS of #Predator with the smart and strong @oliviamunn. She's the best example of having integrity. I was impressed with her ability to pick up action quickly on set but when she's able to take real action and stand up to the studio and media that's when you have to bow down and give her 100% respect. Olivia, it's been a honour working with you 🙏🏼 .

    His work with Snyder his great, but the visuals of this movi are so generic anybody could have done it. Also i am sure the movie in its complete form had something resembling a story and characters, but not the movie that we got.

    So has anyone spotted the original red suit easter egg that Larry Fong has mentioned is in there somewhere? Nothing springs to mind that I can recall, but I did miss some of the other easter eggs people have pointed out so I clearly just didn't notice it.

    Being the cinematographer behind Watchmen, 300, Batman V Superman, etc (you cant deny the cintematography in those was masterful), he should have been left in charge of  the decisions in The Predator, at least it would have been a beautiful nonsense and not a dull-looking nonsense. Story and characters in this case are far from good enough, and the action was messy and badly filmed  :'(
