    It's a paradox I tell you. It just covered 2 movies in one. What on earth could come next?
    Predators hunting americans/nazis in WW2, with them having a key role in the outcome of the war. This could also be a nice way to re-change the designs to a more tribal/vintage style.
    Predators hunting in Vietnam
    Predators hunting ancient warriors in Egypt
    Predators hunting pirates (P2 flintlock)

    Even with Stargazer i think there are really cool ways to tell a new story without the Predator killer, more focused on an actual team capturing a Predator by surprise during a hunt... with them getting to the Predator spaceship, which then flies back home, there they have to face and fight different Alien species with the last survivor and biggest warrior being worthy enough to fight against an elder Predator.

    The core story is always a hunt, and with that there are endless possibilities for really good movies, even on a smaller scale action/horror.

    One would be tempted to say this was the Predator version of Alien 3, due to the studio interference and production issues. However, given the crazy nature of the film/creatures and the comedy, could this not be considered the Predator version of Alien: Resurrection?

    That's a fair assessment. "The Predator" seems to contain a culmination of parallels with both "Alien 3" and "Alien Resurrection".  Plus, the Upgrade Predator can certainly be compared to the Newborn Alien on a species blending angle, as well as its mutual reception i.e. the ruffling feathers of fans.

    Straight to a Prometheus Predator perhaps? An exploration of a long dead Predator Homeworld?

    I feel bad for the SFX people. From the article, they broke the teeth off the gears to do whatever they were asked to do on this one. Thanks to the tug-o-war between Shane and the studio, they were pulling something out of nothing until the very end. For all that, it's like it's their fault the result is what it is. I think they did their best under ridiculous conditions. As designs go, the Predkiller is ok. It's obviously like a pred-flavored ironman suit or Transformer. If it turns up as an action figure, I want one. Used better in the story, it might have got a better reception. Or maybe all-dancing armored suits have worn out their welcome. I'd like to see a director's cut at some point. Might be interesting to compare and contrast.

    While that would be super nice of them, I doubt Predators would create a key for humans to decode their language.  Rory would have to in essense create a key based on breaking down the hud imagery and the language associated with it. Then use that as his basis to decode.

    Then again, the Fugitive was here to give us a weapon that we could use to fight back with, so maybe there was in fact a key!

    Then again again, I think we're really not meant to think that hard about it.  :P

    You guys are right of course. My brain momentarily went into shut down mode thinking about the ridiculous ending.

    I thought the boy said "it says Predator Killer" , he doesn't , he says "it roughly translates as".

    Yes , I have a dodgy version also.

    No traeger says "we had a vote , and Predator sounds cooler" That means they made that name up.
    Common name in English.

    Quote
    So Traeger managed to nickname the Predator what the Predator also called itself in its own language and that's also Predator?! Maybe I'm missing something here.
    You are. I'm really, really not sure how you're not getting this? It's not difficult.

    The humans have decided to call them Predators, so when Rory reads whatever word Predators use to refer to themselves in their language, he translates it into "Predator" in English because that's what humans have decided to call them. That doesn't mean the word is actually "Predator" in their language.

    I'm sure dolphins wouldn't refer to themselves as "dolphins", but if we could translate their language, we'd translate the series of clicks and chirps they'd use to refer to themselves as "dolphins" because that's what we call them in English.

    EDIT

    And yes, he does translate it. He reads it off the screen.

    There would be a word that the Predators use to refer to themselves, which Rory would translate to English as "Predator", as it's their (apparently) common name.

    Edit: Actually he doesn't translate it does he, he just makes his own version of what he thinks it says. Gawd damn that ending. The Predator Killer  :laugh: :laugh: :'(

    @Highland - Say the Predators refer themselves to as ~/\|} ^○.... and you like to refer to the species as 'ugly mofos'.

    The kid is smart enough when he sees ~/\|} ^○ to translate that to 'Predators' when he's around the military, translate that to 'demons' if he's around King Willie, and translate that to 'ugly mofos' when he's around you.   ;D

    Imagine being the guy that designed the suit.

    We need this scene designed you've got 2 weeks.

    4 minutes later...designs predator suit that looks the same as a predator with 15 guns on its shoulders.

    Studio - Perfect. Glad we have guys like you around to save our bacon.

    Edit: Also does the boy read "predator killer" from the pod? If so that means that the predators also now refer to themselves as Predators.

    Outstanding.
    Rosetta stone issues aside: them as a species being known as predators would make the kid translate to that specific word anyway.

    The designs where better in most cases (there are quite the few variants) than what ended up in the film. And no one thought that it was a bad idea, much like Lucas had only yes men around for the prequels.


    Yeah but we named them the Predator. There would be no word translation. Unless the Predator knew we named them the Predator and put Predator Killer on the side..... In his own language.

    "The final scene was another reshoot, very, very late in the schedule. We had two weeks to get the suit designed." Yeah, we noticed. The idea is ok for a comic book but for the movie it was cringe worthy.
  15. Sad fan
    "The Predator" was simply the worst ever film made about the Yautja. And this predator killer suit looks like a chinese-made cheap action figure.

    Shane Black ruined the franchising. As simple as that.

    I love the Russo Bros. directed installments. Winter Soldier. Civil War. Infinity War.  So, so good in my opinion.

    Back on topic though, yeah, nothing Black did with "Iron Man 3" told me he was the right fit for Predator.
    Winter Soldier: didn't get the hype, it was decent but nothing more.
    Civil War was a hot mess. Entertaining, but I took issues with the structuring and it being nothing more than a forced excuse to split them all up.
    Inifinity War was the first film that did stuff right, except that mess of a Wakkandan Battle that seemed to be lifted straight from any random Transformers film.

    Iron Man 3 made money because it was an Iron Man movie. They've drug this thing out way too long. Iron man didn't need 3 movies. It was clear by the second film that things were getting thin.

    But you'll never get anyone in charge to put an end to what's likely the greatest money making machine in the history of the business. It'll have to put itself out narratively. Unless they start introducing more new characters as teenagers to keep the franchise alive for the foreseeable future. This beef with Thanos needs to be the endgame. Then they all need to retire and let the world take care of itself. "They always had heroes".
    The only thing that was getting thin was the finale.

    Somehow most Marvel films are great at build ups but rarely deliver in the final IMO. Perhaps they are just too full of details and twists to make them truly epic in the end.

    I enjoy them, but back on topic: it was the anticipation that sold those tickets.

    Or cos made a Marvel movie that grossed over a billion dollars :P

    IMDB just hasn't been the same since they deleted the social media elements and comments section.

    I cringe when 30-something man-child YouTube reviewers tell Millennials of Shane Black's previous work, even I have no interest in watching as a 80s/90s kid, but forget the elephant in the room.

    IRON MAN 3
    Director- Shane Black
    Budget- $200 Million
    Box Office- $1.215 billion
    Critical response- 80% Rotten Tomatoes, 7.2/10 IMDB
    17th Highest Grossing movie of all-time.

    You do realize that movie would have made tons of cash no matter who directed it right?

    And I didn't know directing the money-in-the-bank "Iron Man 3", the sequel starring the most popular star in the mcu Robert Downey Jr., the one film that directly followed only the hottest Marvel event film yet, the first "Avengers", the the one that most mcu fans (like myself) considered a misstep, I didn't know directing that movie made Shane the right fit for "The Predator"!  It might prove he's the right fit for another Marvel film, but Predator? And to co-write it too?

    It's probably why I didn't know the director of the wonderful James Bond film "Casino Royale", Martin Campbell, made him the right fit for "Green Lantern" either!  Oh.. wait.  :P

    Look I had fun watching "The Predator", will buy it on blu-ray too, but it's not the great film the franchise needed unfortunately. And that falls mostly on Shane.

    Yea I don't get how Black gets the credit for making Iron Man 3 a hit either. It was the weakest in the franchise imo, and would have made a billion even with Uwe Boll directing.

    If I was an executive at fox and I heard Shane Black was gonna do a new film the first thing I’d say is oh it’s gonna be a funny take on it, I’d have asked Blomkamp to prove himself by making PREDATOR 4 then if it’s a critical and commercial success then he can do ALIEN 5.
