The Predator Stalks 4K & Blu-Ray on December 18, 2018

Hot on the heels of the leaked special features the other day, 20th Century Fox have now officially announced The Predator home media releases. The 4K Ultra Blu-Ray, regular Blu-Ray and DVD releases of Shane Black’s sequel will be out in North America on December 18th, 2018 while you can get the digital releases on November 27th, 2018.

Bad news for people in the UK – we won’t get The Predator until January 2019 (January 11th – digital download, January 28th – Blu-Ray). It appears the leaked special features were more or less spot on – the exact translations were just a bit off.

The Predator Special Features

  • Deleted Scenes
  • A Touch of Black
  • Predator Evolution
  • The Takedown Team
  • Predator Catch-Up
  • Gallery

The runtime is 107 minutes so there’ll definitely be no special director’s cut. The 4K Blu-Ray comes with a Dolby Atmos track while the regular Blu-Ray comes with a DTS-HD MA 7.1 track. Surprisingly and I think for the first time out of all Alien and Predator films, there’ll be no director’s commentary track. You can preorder The Predator releases here on Amazon.co.uk or on Amazon.com.

In addition to those sets, there’ll be 4-disc set including all four Predator movies released at the same time.

    Looks like there won't be any emissary scenes.

    They include:

    - Traeger meets McKenna
    - Lynch goes shopping
    - Inspection of the house
    - bloopers

    Maybe there will be other stuff, my source tells me that's it though.

    Halloween was weak. Don't see what all the hype is about. I do agree that the predator was such trash I don't see even hardcore fans like myself justifying a purchase. And I own both avps. Shane and fred should retire from screen writing. This was just a huge slap in the face.

    .mIn other words, some may choose to support the film at release, others may not, and yet both may think they've done what's in the best interest of the franchise. It was merely a rebuttal to the idea that supporting this questionable movie in the theater was indeed, "doing one's part".

    I 100% agree with you that it's subjective and supporting a film, or not supporting a film in protest, can both be fairly categorized as "doing one's part".  True, taking either position can have its own share of foreseeable backfires, but both can be classified that way nevertheless.

    My commentary was only qualified to a specific position already taken, not to proclaim there is one position to take.  At least, that is the way it was intended.  As anything I say, I probably could use a few edits for clarification sake.  Cheers!  ;D

    I agree with this sentiment... i.e. avoiding this release in it's entirety to make a statement both theatrically and on home video.

    However when one suggests they have "done their part" by purchasing a ticket, in essense financially supporting said movie, while the other hand plans to illegally download a copy to view at home, i.e. not financially supporting its home release, it's ultimately a half-measure, a mixed signal, a way to self legitimize a reason to illegally download a copy for home viewing and save some money.

    But either way, you probably can see, I personally do not support the illegal downloads of films.

    Indeed quite so. This was a communications error on my part. I leaped from one thought, straight into another, without effectively bridging the gap.

    Allow me to elaborate. My statement about what constituted "doing one's part" was not a defense of anyone or any activity, and certainly not a defense of illegal acts. It was merely an examination of what I believe "doing one's part" constitutes, in regards to supporting the theatrical run of the film. That it is a subjective process.

    In other words, some may choose to support the film at release, others may not, and yet both may think they've done what's in the best interest of the franchise. It was merely a rebuttal to the idea that supporting this questionable movie in the theater was indeed, "doing one's part". That there was, in fact, no single correct answer to that notion.

    As for illegal downloading, no, I don't support that. Never have, never will. It's theft, and theft is low business.

    I was kind of guessing the UK release would be a January 2019 release and the November 2018 USA digital release would be jumping the shark.

    I hate to say it but.............this will be a torrential rain release for me..... :'(

    Well at least I bought a full priced cinema ticket, so I've done my part.

    When supporting a franchise, purchasing a cinema ticket but bootlegging a home video copy is not fully doing one's part in my opinion.

    And here I thought it was a joke about the weather in England or something.  :D

    As for "doing one's part", I think that is definitely subjective. Calling out problems and mistakes in a civil/respectful fashion is also doing one's part. Like when some people say you have to support your favorite sports team, even when they lose constantly, or you're not a true fan. I disagree with that notion. You locate the problem, and either remove it and/or press for change. That's how things improve.

    So I did my part by not buying a ticket. I simply couldn't and wouldn't support the nutty approach this movie took with the franchise.

    Well that's unfortunate. Fans in the UK have to wait a whole month and a half later.  :-\

    Unfortunately home media isn't permitted to be released within 4 months of the cinema release here in the UK, so The Predator for us just misses the Christmas window.

    I wasn't aware of that! Where did you read this?

    Well, I'm certainly not too impressed with the details so far. Seems pretty bare. The lack of commentary is just... ??? I suppose Black and Dekker are probably sick of this film by now.

    I can't provide an exact quote, but it's from what I've read various times online and the Blu-ray forums. I believe it's something around 17 weeks from cinema to DVD in the UK, as that's the agreement with the cinema chains for the theatrical distribution window.

    Just as a note, but Shane Black never provided a commentary track with his last film, The Nice Guys, either.

    So instead of this...

    Extras according to a member of Blu-ray.com who has access to early home release details:

    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

    ...we get this:

    Deleted Scenes
    A Touch of Black
    Predator Evolution
    The Takedown Team
    Predator Catch-Up
    Gallery

    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/

    LOS 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.
