Introducing The Predator’s Emissary Predators!

One of the most publicised removed aspects of The Predator following the extensive third act reshoots was the complete removal of a sub-plot that involved two Emissary Predators who were actively working against the Upgrade Predator and his fellow clan members.

Kyle Strauts, one of the performers who wore that extra-terrestrial reptilian skin, has been sharing some pictures on his Instagram of his time on the set of The Predator as one of the Emmisary’s!

Titan’s The Predator: The Official Movie Special was recently released and that featured Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff of Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. talking about designing the Emissary Predators and how they approached differentiating their design from the Fugitive Predator and from one another. You can check that out below:

    That makes sense.

    I can definitely see this upgrade clan not supporting individuality / individualists for sure. The same type of clan that would have a fugitive. The same type of clan that would invade a planet, and kill other than for sport.

    I'm still not certain how I feel towards these Emissary Predators, but I really hope we're going to be able to see a great deal of this stuff on the blu-ray.

    However, often with movies that endured heavy narrative changing reshoots, the changes are never acknowledged / included in the supplementals of its initial breakout home video release

    Still, fingers crossed.

    Just to copy what I said in the figure thread >>

    I'd rationalised it as they've just been here that long. Their own clothing, equipment, whatever, was damaged in previous engagements or just over time and so they just made do with local substitutes.

    It's not JW. It's the obvious underdog winning that is a classic tale of heroism that get's cheered for.
    Nah man. It was the fact that everyone, including myself thought Blue died after how hard she was slammed into the wall and how lifelessly she slid off it. Seeing how all the other raptors died, everyone thought she was done as done can be. Add to the fact that Roberta was going to get chomped up, with the idea all the raptors died, no one thought Blue actually made it until that awesome moment.

    They got scrubbed really quick via Ion blast huh? Man there were better Predator fights in the comics than that. It should have been longer, show off more to how Upgrade is superior to them via close combat or intelligence. Plus a different take on the Pred/human team ups is a interesting take now against another Pred, especially a Upgrade. Plus the Emissary Preds could have explained more to why the Upgrade exists and the whole clan war thing going on. The Emissary Preds could have delivered so much to the table, this sucks.  :'(

    I'm not sure if that kept over to the filmed stuff (I'm going to ask Kyle/Brian actually) but damn, none of the films have really brought that Predator on Predator action on screen in a genuinely exciting fashion. I'd love to see a proper drawn out and exciting sequence.

    They didn't explicitly die in the filmed footage. They were both knocked from the APC when they were trying to use their cable weapons and the Upgrade uses a net weapon to catch the cable and send them flying. Their fate is left open ended.
    Damm I feel so picky saying this but sending the Preds away like that and not showing up is even a huge fault. Just pull a Jurassic World and have them tossed into a fire and explode or something instead of open endedness. Otherwise the audience expects them to be back later on.

    Actually they should pull a Jurassic World, that scene when Blue came back to save Roberta was actually f**kin intense that the whole audience got up and cheered. That shit would be cool!

    I agree that scene in jw is great,  the movie is not perfect but has good moments

    Spoiler
    THE ARK IS DOWN

    Just past the fifty yard-line. Imbedded in the turf.

    AND THERE'S RORY

    Limping from the ship. Disoriented.

    McKenna starts toward him. His expression suggests that once
    he has the boy in his arms, he's not likely to let go.

    At which point, the "DEFECTOR" PREDATORS RISE SLOWLY,
    throatily CLICKING... Grab their WEAPONS.

    Then? Everything goes to hell. Striding across the field --

    THE UPGRADE. Big as life.

    Raises the GAUNTLET. Promptly spikes an ION BLAST through
    each of the smaller Predators; DISINTEGRATING them --
    [close]

    Can't believe some people actually get paid to write such bad scripts, the lines that were used, such cringe garbage. Easy money right there.

    I think the emissaries could have been a decent addition to the movie, it's just the way they were taken out was so underwhelming. We get that the Upgrade is strong - but for them to be wiped so quickly and after saying something along the lines of, "yeah - there may be no hope after all" is just... wasteful of their potential  :-\

    Plus I don't get how people got upset with the military fatigues. Why is it in media that humans can adopt alien stuff but the reverse is forbidden? Sure Pred tech is better by far but as it shows, its not replaced entirely. They still got the shurikens, plasmacasters, wristblades, and cloaking tech for example. Hell, Fugitive made good use of our low tier guns during his escape.
