The Predator Holiday Special Released Online!

Have you ever wanted to see a clan of Gort Predators take on Santa’s Reindeer? I didn’t know I wanted that but damn, The Predator Holiday Special was fun! Having teased it last week, The Predator’s Holiday Special aired last night during Bo-Jack Horseman. And now, 20th Century Fox have uploaded the full Holiday Special to their own social outlets!

The stop-motion animated Holiday Short featuring THE PREDATOR as he tangles with his most formidable foe yet – Santa and his reindeer.

Entertainment Weekly has also shared a behind-the-scenes article that digs a little into the story behind The Predator Holiday Special. It turns out the Special was actually the creation of Matt Senreich and David Brooks’ Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the studio behind the infamous Robot Chicken!

Executive producers Matt Senreich and David Brooks say there were hanging out at Comic-Con with 20th Century Fox’s vice president of worldwide creative strategy, Matt Motschenbacher, when they were presented with the opportunity of turning the legendary property on its head.

“It was really just a random hangout moment,” says Senreich. “I geeked out about the idea because we just loved the property, and I love taking projects and taking these absurd worlds and making them mundane.”

The Predator is now out on Blu-ray and DVD in the United States. It is due out on the 28th of January in the UK.

    Hilarious indeed!

    Star Wars fans have their Christmas Special. Now, Predator fans do too!  ;D

    I think the Predator one is miiiiles better than the Star Wars one  :laugh:

    Indeed!  :laugh:
    Hear that folks. The 2 minute Predator Christmas special is better than the star wars holiday special. Something everyone can agree on meesa thinks. Although considering how many Predator fans think the Predator holiday special is better than the "The Predator" movie itself... oh boy.

    The difference between this and robot-chicken is that robot-chicken parodies are usually pretty damn hilarious.  To be fair parodies are only as good as the movie. Thus this is just another nail in the coffin that The Predator is a stinker.

    However I really dig the animation and sets. It was a technically well made short. Good job on that. It's just the source of the parody wasn't worth making funnies over.

    Ironic as during the teaser trailer on AVPGALAXY News feed I almost commented "looks like Robot Chicken" and low and behold it is.

    Robot Chicken had done tons of ALIENS, PREDATOR and AVP stop motion parodies during it's, many, series runs. YouTube it.

    Don't believe the "background story" of this particular parody, I just think Robot Chicken is so widespread 20th Century Fox did a "thow everything and the kitchen sink" approach into damage limitation, including a very early home release (US only).

    Things that are stop motion usually, 90% of the time aren't supposed to be serious  ::). They're supposed to be fun, and honestly this was fun as hell  :laugh:
    I thought it was great, and the animation was really good on top of that

    I'll admit, I was hoping it would be at least 10 minutes, but I still dug it. It would be great to get a full blown 20-30 minute Christmas special where there is some lengthy stalking and a plot.

    "Larry...you sonofab*tch".  :D I love it.

    The humor is the low effort, exhausted drivel I've come to expect from the talentless chodes of Comedy Central.

    Of course, we're supposed to accept this as the height of entertainment because "its parody, duh". Parody of what? The fossilized anti-humor of late night television tumors like SNL?  ::)

    Oh look now the Predator can be killed by a deer and elf.

    Man all jokes aside this is getting pretty damn sad, especially for a parody. An Easter basket with an alien egg inside it... oh wow, yea we've never seen that one before. This is baloney. I wouldn't wish this on a broke-dick dog. Well at least they got the Predator lore correct; in that a tiny elf was able to exterminate an entire Predator troop after getting stabbed in the gut.

    You both are joking right? Please tell me these complaints are made with tongue-firmly-implanted-in-cheek.
