Predator fans certainly have something to look forward to this year! Hot on the heels of the recent news revealing some insight into the two main characters featured in the upcoming Predator 5 (also known as Skulls), Alien vs. Predator Galaxy have now exclusively learned that the Dan Trachtenberg directed film is tentatively scheduled to begin shooting in just a few months.

 [Exclusive] The Predator Is Coming To Calgary! Predator 5/Skulls Slated To Begin Filming In May!

Produced by Davis Entertainment, the 5th Predator film is slated to begin filming in the middle of May 2021 in Calgary, Canada!  And along with this tentative production slate, we also have another peek into the story of the film via this production synopsis:

“The story will follow Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well defined society and gender norms.  Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader.  As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe.  In the Comanche way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him.  Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not.  A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche.  When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.”

Of course, production schedules can change at anytime, so be sure to keep your targets set on Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for all the latest Predator 5 news!

    In regards to its rating, while I'd love it to have an R rating, the quality of script, cast and direction takes precedent in my line of concerns. In the wise words of Yoda: Make a great film, gore does not. And I would assume the majority that prefer AvP over AvPR would probably tend to agree.

    The Skulls general premise sounds like a good start to me though and a back to basics approach, but of course, we'll see how it all shakes out. 🤞

    Well....could Deadpool succeed without the R rating that the character and his stories are known for? Taming them down would have taken alot of what the character is, a ranchy, violent, and very dorky/dizy mercenary with a heart of gold. It seems Ryan Reynolds, the writers, and even the fanbase believed so.

    Well, I haven't read all of them, but I've read my fair share of Deadpool comics and they weren't as raunchy as that movie. You'd be more likely to spot a censored sign over his dialogue and watch him hit a villian with it.  :)

    I mean, if the Predator wasn't allowed to have scenes where spines and skulls are ripped out or chests blown apart from plasma bolts, would it still be a Predator film that is true to its violent nature? Would Predator and Predator 2 still be memorable if it weren't for the shocking action and brutal nature of the Predator as it hunted our human characters and antagonists? Plus I don't think using AVP is a good example as while AVP is preferred over AVPR, its not saying much as the film itself is being compared to a sequel that is just objectively not executed well in many areas. Even with AVP itself, its not exactly one of objectively top quality either compared to Alien or Predator.

    The script, cast, and direction of course needs to be there, but to tame the nature of the Predator isn't exactly something that many people will favor.

    PG-13 AvP we still got violent kills. Even a chestburster. Just not much gore. Don't get me wrong, I want Skulls to be filled with gore too, very much so, but it is lower to me in priority under cast, script and direction.

    I remember people being concerned over Terminator 3 possibly being rated PG-13, but that film ultimately rated as an R didn't fix things. Nor was Terminator Salvation PG-13 rating their problem in my opinion. So rating, while important to me, ranks lower on the totem pole.  :)

    I wouldn't mind it if Ian came back but I'd be more than willing to see Bryan Prince again. He definitely brings the character to life in a way past actors haven't, he really does a great job on Fugitive. He's probably the closest to KPH at least for me.
    I just keep thinking about the thumbs up scene and I get sad.


    As far as ratings go I suspect that Disney+ will get it but with the franchise being on Hulu they wont be dead set on PG-13. PG-13 has happened before, it's just down to the film itself. If it doesn't need an R-rating if it just doesn't need it. I don't need it to pull out all the stops just to get an R, it just needs to be a good film first.

    I don't even see them pulling back to PG-13, Deadpool already ensured that an R rating can work and The Predator proved that people shied away from the film for its quality and not the rating.

    No more head turns, I have all the praise in the world for Ian Whyte's performance as The Last Engineer, but his Predator performances don't outclass Brian A Prince's Fugitive.

    Wait, have you just said something good about The Predaotr ?


    She loves The Predaotr!

    No rating confrmed for now, but it's a widespread fear among fans from what I can see. A legitimate question also.

    Not going to lie, it does make me a bit nervous too.  I don't think that it's a given with younger actors, but with some of the other elements and Marvel peeking into the picture for the printed media...  I hope they comment on this sooner rather than later so I can check my expectations  :-X

    Kind of late to the party, but the choice of setting is kind of confusing me  ???

    Did they mention anything about rating - are we to assume this is going to be R or is there a chance they'd change this to PG-13?  Cause idk, the synopsis (brother/sister, possibly young adult actors) is giving me slight PG-13 vibes (I understand that this could just be paranoia speaking.)

    That aside, dang they're really moving with this one.

     Predator movies should be like the first 3, all stories in the same universe, but that aren't necessarily connected or dependent of one another.
    The first 3 Predator movies all work even if you don't have watched the others, they are stories about a group of people with a common goal being hunted by something they don't know. The Predator broke this formula by making the Predator known to the main characters halfway through, it was also too silly, and that's not even getting on the multiple retcons it tried to make to the lore.
  10. Huggs
    Even if the movie sucks, having the timeframe between new predator movies go from literally decades to a few years is a positive thing, and one that I sincerely hope becomes the norm.

    We had something to look forward to in 2018 and now we don't even like looking back at that trash. This woke bullshit is killing cinema. The synopsis alone is cringe

    Just wait till the Predator enters the MCU...

    I'd fear the overall ramifications, but I'd be lying if I wouldn't relish this crossover.

    If you're saying that The Predator is unfairly maligned, and are saying this because of what could have been rather than what we got, I'm going to have to disagree.

    You love it, and you know it!

    I'm talking about the actual movie we got, there is some cinematic qualities in it, trust me. Not many though lol nobody is going to argue about that for sure. And that doesn't erase the shit ton of flaws and stupidity this movie gives us. But I stand by my words, there are real qualities in it when many people said there aren't.

    If I misread you, then I apologize.
  16. BigDaddyJohn
    Obviously it's a sick movie in the litteral sense, but I see few (very few) good genuine moments of actual cinema in it. I know, it's supposed to be a normal thing for an object calling itself a movie, but I read so many times that this one was stripped of moments like that, that I must say it's an erroneous statement.
