Shane Baxley Shares Upgrade Predator & Ship Concept Art!

Shane Baxley, one of the concept artists who worked on The Predator, has been sharing some of the artwork of the Upgrade Predator and Predator ship that he did for the film! Shane took a deliberately leaner approach to the Upgrade than the film would ultimately take. You can also see some exploration of the various skin armour texturing.

    "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.

    Some executive at Fox figured Shane Black was the right person for the job because #1. he had a small acting role in the first Predator and #2. wrote a draft of Predator (that was never used). Genius!

    Fox Executive #1: Hey, if 'The Predator' makes enough money in China and we start looking at sequels, Bill Duke is a writer & director too, so he can do the next one!

    Fox Executive #2: Genius!

    ((High fives))

    Maybe Duke's take on the predator will have Preds in suits in Harlem during prohibition  :laugh:

    The more I read of the making of the movie, the more I shake my head in disbelief. How can so many talented creative people end up with such an uncreative narative on why they changed the looks, the lore and the feel of the Predator and why they felt the need to do so other than it being just... different.

    this.......

    That concept art for Stargazer base looks really cool. It's a pity we didn't get to see more of it throughout the film or during Fugitive's breakout.

    That pic with the Predator overseeing the guy firing the weapon still just seems odd to me though. :laugh:
  14. Daniil
    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.
