Updated: Third Ending Shot for The Predator is Even More Crazy…

Well if you thought that unused ending for The Predator with Ripley was wild, you better buckle yourself up for this one…

A few days back we discovered that the previously mysterious facehugger-inspired breathing mask prop which StudioADI constructed was actually filmed in an alternate ending for The Predator. Much to our surprise, this ending would’ve featured Ripley from the Alien films, with stunt actress Breanna Watkins standing in for the character.

This information came to us by way of Yuri Everson, who shared behind the scenes images of the filming of this alternate ending on his Instagram. Yuri also promised to share the next unused ending from the movie that was shot, and he’s now made good on that promise via Instagram.

While some of us anticipated the next unused ending to tease the appearance of Dutch from the first Predator film, we’re instead surprised with yet another character from the Alien films…

Here’s Yuri’s post:

“We shot 3 different endings for The Predator, all variations of a “Predator Killer”. This unused ending was Predator Killer Newt aka Rebecca Jordan wearing the breather mask we created for the film,” Everson explains over on Instagram. “You can see her name there on the monitors. Breanna Watkins played Newt. The moving “fingers” and “tail” on the mask were deemed too facehugger-like on the day and were cut and removed by someone… Sorry @jon_k_miller who headed up making the breather mask for us @thestudioadi with @saratheterra, @ape5150, Zach Teller and Lord Garth but they made me do it! Michael Diner and his amazing Vancouver crew made the pod. All in no time flat.”

Newt

That is indeed an adult Rebecca “Newt” Jordan from Aliens who would’ve awakened from the pod. You can see her name displayed on the screens within the assumed cryo chamber, so this all but confirms the time-travel idea that was interpreted with the Ripley ending.

We shouldn’t have to tell anyone who has seen the Alien trilogy that Newt appearing here, as an adult, doesn’t make much sense, and this can only be explained by some kind of alternate timeline. We’ve seen Newt in alternate timelines such as the original Aliens comics, the recent unused screenplay of William Gibson Alien³ Comic that is currently running, as well as the abandoned Alien 5 film.

While Neil Blomkamp, who would’ve directed Alien 5 has said that he’s “moved on,” seeing endings with both Ripley and now Newt makes me wonder if Fox wasn’t trying to tease a return to the concept of an alternate Alien 3. Actress Breanna Watkins also portrayed Newt for this ending.

What do you think of this bombshell of an alternate ending? Are you surprised that Fox was considering this? Let us know in the Forum.

    What would an Alien birthed from ET look like?

    An alien with an even more dick-shaped head ?  ;D
    Lol!
    Think that's wild, wait until you see it's little mouth.
    It glows!  :o
    Just the tip.

    But ET looks more like a scrotum than a phallus so lose the little mouth and have a little scrotum drop down instead.

    Back on the even more insane in the membrane alternative acts... ET in the pod would have made much more sense. ET was intercepted on his journey home and is an intergalactically protected species. At least the motive would have been clear. And the upgrade Predator should have had a cowboy hat and giant belt buckle.

    No spurs?
    Being a Black movie of course they're should have been spurs included.

    Hmm, no "Stay on target" gif.

    Yea, stay of target just like Traeger did right?

    Probably because the alternate endings are nonsensical enough.

    Now, if I started talking about how to bake Reese's Peanut Butter Cup cookies while trimming the cat's nails, then we'd get a "Stay on target" gif.

    Wait.

    A back up 3rd alternate ending? Actually didn't Disney buy Fox... oh goody, here comes the alien/predator/star wars crossover.
    Like anything, handled properly, it could work. But 999,999 times out of a million, we'd get some awful ham-handed garbage.

    Jeez... bringing Star Wars into it would also by association bring E.T. into it...

    GERT vs. ALIENS vs. PREDATOR!!!
    As a sight gag, we could put a xeno on the flying bike :D But if we use 2002 ET aesthetics, all the weapons become walkie-talkies.  ::)
    Holy shit, my god, a xeno on a flying bike racing past the moon would be awesome. Calling it now, glowing xeno finger in the next alien movie. Oh and of course ET will be in the basket.
    Eh... that'll do huggs. That'll do.

    The actress playing Newt is stacked and I don't know how to feel about it.

    Been fighting with that one since the moment I saw it. It's breast not to think about it.

    There's no amount of rabbit facepalms I can use to convey my disappointment in your puns.

    That hurts. I make one boob joke and it goes "bust".

    Whole situation went tits up.

    I'm gland it's over. We'll always have the mammaries to look back on.

    The actress playing Newt is stacked and I don't know how to feel about it.

    My points exactly when Neill Blomkamp released his ALIEN 5 concept art of Newt appearing to be a boiler suit wearing version of actress Carrie Henn as she looks as an adult now- which "surprises" some fans.

    The comics were going for a slim, but stacked (big boobed) blonde. I'm sure that would impress the feminists, as well as be awkward for fans who "knew" of Newt before she reached the age of consent.

    Oh boy.

    Not been on here in a few weeks and I come back to this?

    Yowzer!

    WTF where they thinking??

    I distinctly remember Black speaking out saying that this film would be the 5th in the series but, my word, I could never imagine they'd try to bridge the AvP gap like this.

    Utterly shocking stuff!!
  18. whiterabbit
    Wait. Which images went down, the Newt ending? or the Ripley one? For a moment, when I logged in, I thought there was SURPRISE ANOTHER TWIST ENDING! lol
    What happened is that Yuri-san's Instagram account was apparently deleted, and apparently so was he. I'm not saying it was Vladimir Putin but...

    Why is Newt dressed like AOTC Padme?

    So will these cuts be released on a special edition coming soon ?? and when is soon?

    I'd like to make my own cut of the film, and I'm hoping they polished it to a point of viewable. The Iron Predator looks terrible. Anatomically and proportionally atrocious. Looked like those horribly crafted  models from the first Injustice  game. Bleh!!!

    Hi everyone, I'm wondering if there is any version released yet with an alternate ending? Thanks for your time

    No, nothing released, nothing announced so far.
