Updated: Here’s the Special Features for The Predator Blu-Ray Set

 Here's the Special Features for The Predator Blu-Ray SetIt appears the special features for the forthcoming The Predator Blu-Ray release have leaked online via forum member Pieter V on Blu-Ray.com Forums. These features do appear to be accurate.

What we have is almost 7 minutes of deleted scenes and it does appear that the original last act featuring the two “Emissary Predators” and hybrid creatures aren’t included here.

It seems extremely unlikely that there’ll be any kind of director’s cut or restored cut for Shane Black’s Predator sequel. A lot of those scenes still required a lot of CGI work and they wouldn’t necessarily make the film any better. Keep an eye out in the future as we’re currently working on a detailed article covering the deleted scenes from the film.

There’ll also be a few short featurettes entitled “Little Black”, “Evolution of the Predator” and “Hunting the Predator”. Rounding off those are trailers and a photo gallery. A commentary track from director Shane Black is surprisingly absent from the list though. All in all, as with the Alien Covenant, this is a fairly disappointing bare-bones release.

The Predator Special Features:

  • Deleted Scenes (6:45 minutes)
  • Little Black (10:22 minutes)
  • Evolution of the Predator (20:05 minutes)
  • Hunting the Predator (9 minutes)
  • Gallery
  • Trailers

20th Century Fox still haven’t officially announced the release date of The Predator home releases but I expect it will be out by December. For now, you can preorder The Predator 4K release for $/£24.99 here on Amazon.co.uk or on Amazon.com.

Update: A flyer has been posted for the sets confirming the December 2018 release date:

Meanwhile, here’s something to wet your whistle. A 9-disc Predator 4-Movie Collection is due out in Japan in January 2019 (via Ratkuten).

    Except for a "Predator Catch-Up" sub for the "Trailers", all we got was some title changes to the docs.  Weeeee!  :P


    Really those titles might not have been changed, just lost in translation.

    Well that tweet from John Squires saying it wasn't the complete list of bonus features turned out to be a false hope for something substantial.  :-\

    Don't recall if this has come up already but digital release is 17th of November.




    And looks like the actual press release/details have been released: https://goodnerdbadnerd.com/2018/10/30/the-predator-is-coming-home/

    QuoteLOS ANGELES, CA – The hunt for the perfect holiday gift is over. The universe's greatest hunter returns in The Predator on Digital and Movies Anywhere November 27 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD December 18. Fans can bring home a special edition Predator 4-Movie Collection, which includes Predator, Predator 2, Predators and The Predator on 4K Ultra HD™ and Blu-ray.

    The hunt has evolved – and so has the explosive action – in the next chapter of the Predator series, from director Shane Black (Iron Man 3). Now, the most lethal hunters in the universe are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before....and only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biology professor can prevent the end of the human race.

    With the special edition Predator 4-Movie Collection, fans can experience four times the terror with a killer collection of action-packed Predator movies, plus four collector cards of the original film poster re-issue with some of the franchises most iconic quotes on the back. In Predator, Arnold Schwarzenegger wages an all-out war against an extraterrestrial that hunts humans for sport. Then in Predator 2, Danny Glover battles the fearsome creature in the urban jungle of Los Angeles. In Predators Adrien Brody leads a group of elite warriors on an alien planet targeted by a new Predator breed. Finally, in The Predator, Boyd Holbrook discovers that the most lethal hunters in the universe are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever.

    I liked the cover with the predator spine more, but I suppose that's too graphic. Don't care much for the cover in the flyer. Looks like the predator has "big head mode" activated.

    Shame that it's not releasing until December.
  5. Voodoo Magic
    With all that lettering and graphics. I call sooooo bullsh*t.


    Go ahead. I'll time you.


    And don't cut and paste the retail information from this into your fan made flier!  :P


    Been 40 minutes....  :P

    Personally, I'm not thrilled with what was selected. I may pass on the steelbook and just go with the standard release.

    WTF?  :o

    I would actually want THAT as the official steelbook Blu Ray cover.

    If I had the TV and BluRay that would be my choice cover. Awesome.

    While I appreciate special features, as long as I get the movie, I'm good. I would've liked to have seen the original final act though. Having both cuts would've been really cool.

    But the alternative cut would have had "scene missing" cards, unedited takes,  missing or incomplete CGI (sans a guy in a ping pong ball Velcro suit stand in). The scenes suggested would only make sense in post-production.

    People do not know what a "work print" looks like.

    I guess I wasn't specific enough. By both cuts, I mean both versions of the film, totally finished. It's obvious that's not going to happen, but it would've been nice if it had.

    This film has been a disaster, even toward the bitter end. I feel bad about Shane and his crew. I think Shane had this idea he thought was really cool and would have revolutionized the Franchise. However, in reality, it was extremely flawed and, most importantly, immature. I can understand this error. When I was in high school I wrote an Alien script. I thought it was fantastic and innovative. Five years later I look back and see it as a highly flawed work. I don't know all the details of how Shane was given the rights to write and make a predator film but it seems that the script was made in around a month time. I think Fox gave him a time limit to submit an idea and Shane, being in love with predator, didn't want to take the chance that he would not be the chosen director. Thus he got something finished in a month or two and submitted it to Fox. From my own personal experience and what I have seen in the industry, writing a good script takes a lot of time and a lot of research. A good example of this is Blade Runner 2049. The film took a couple of years to write and make yet it was incredible and won oscars.

    I wasn't expecting a director's cut, there was too much tinkering right up to the last minute for it to have been re-assessed for that.

    I will be delighted if the Emissary Predators footage is part of the deleted scenes, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were instead more character moments and extended scenes. As for the original 3rd act in daylight, I'm sure way too much of it is absent of the Upgrade Predator CGI to be worthwhile for inclusion.

    I wonder how Shane Black's first cut would have played for better or worse. He sounded quite beat up by the end of the process.
  12. Voodoo Magic
    Yeah when I hoped for a director's cut, I never expected the original emissary Predator cut (even though I'd love to see it, even unfinished).  However, I did hope for a few inserted scenes director's cut to boost the narrative.

    As expected, the first glimpse of the all 4 movie collection:
