New Predator Film “Skulls” Production Update & Speculation

As production has been underway on-location in Alberta, Canada for the fifth film in the Predator franchise (currently known as “Skulls”), the scheduled completion date for filming has been pushed back several times since cameras began rolling on June 7th.

As late as last week, the Local 212 chapter of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees had been indicating filming for “Skulls” was scheduled to be completed on the 28th of this month. But now, it seems the target date for completion of principal photography has shifted yet again, this time scheduled to be finished on September 9th.

In related “Skulls” production news, thanks to the Instagram Story of stunt performer Jung Jin Park, we got a great look at these wonderful new shirts created exclusively for the members of the “Skulls Stunt Team” that were lucky enough to participate in the making of this film.

Interestingly enough, the skull on the shirt seems to depict the cranium of a bear, an animal native to the area of filming. Is this a clue that a bear might be featured in the new Predator film “Skulls”?

A bear in the film remains to be seen, but it could be what Producer John Fox was hinting at last month when he said this about the upcoming film “Skulls”:

It actually has more akin to ‘The Revenant’ than it does any film in the Predator canon. You’ll know what I mean once you see it.”

For anyone who’s not aware, “The Revenant” is a 2016 feature film starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a frontiersman in 1823 that has to survive life threatening injuries from a bear attack.

Will a similar event happen in the next Predator film? We shall see, but it wouldn’t be the first time a Predator has gone up against a ferocious bear.

In the 1997 Dark Horse Comics series “Predator: Primal”, the intergalactic hunter from space faced a similar challenge.

    Based on his Instagram account, it looks like Kyle Strauts flew home, so it appears he's done.

    Only four days left of filming! (unless it's bumped again)

    He means people don't consider it a spoiler to mention something that's shown in a trailer so they don't put images or references in spoiler tags.

    Ah. Yeah, that's true. And it's a bitch.
    A certain site does it all the time. You'll see some title like "The new trailer for movie x reveals the monster in all it's glory!" with a picture of the monster right next to it. I hate it. Wish they just used the name logo of the movie and let people see for themselves (if they want to).
    Or you'll get articles where they analyze some event or scene of a movie. A movie that's been out in the theatres for less than a week.
    Let's say it was Alien 3, probably would've gotten something like "Ripley's suicide: a look on self-sacrifice in movies".

    Yep, precisely.

    Any theatergoer here in the U.S. is inundated with trailers before every film. And before you say close your eyes and wear ear plugs for 20 minutes...

    Today's decorum is the content within film trailers is public knowledge. There's no spoiling trailers. So for anyone trying to avoid a spoiler image... say what the Predator will look like... will be flooded with that image via screencaps headlining new articles, videos, and in your social media streams between the the time of the trailer and the film's release, regardless if you click on the content or not.

    I don't go to the theatre. If so I'd mess about on my phone and/or listen to music during the trailers.

    What do you mean by "there's no spoiling trailers"? Don't trailers spoil things?

    IF and that's IF you really want to, you can avoid a lot. Unless you're an active member of the AvP scene, like a moderator on fansite or something  ;)
    In my social circle I'm the only "nerd" when it comes to this stuff. So no one I know will be posting or telling me about it.
    Pre having seen Covenant, a local website posted a picture that was a small spoiler. So I quit visiting that site. And many others for a period of time.
    Since I don't go theatres, I had to wait until an official online version was released. That's a longer wait while there's even more info online.
    Wasn't easy but I managed. Didn't see any footage before watching and didn't know too much.

    Riding the bear train here but what if those are supposed to be bear cubs?

    Given Dan's caption, would it make sense that these are rats? Doesn't look like rats but that's Henry Jone's worse nightmare apparently.

    If you're worried about trailers spoiling things, just don't watch them.
    You're gonna watch the movie anyway, so why bother? It'll only ruin the element of surprise and wonder of watching something for the very first time, which imo is an important part of the whole movie viewing experience.

    For Skulls, I'm still holding out hope the film is not promoted as a Predator film, but rather a mysterious period piece monster film. But alas, if they do wear "Predator" on their promotional sleeve, please don't show us the creature, not even in the trailer(s).

    If it is full disclosure that they're indeed going for, I would definitely love something in the vein of this for the teaser, but alas, trailer narration has gone the way of the dinosaurs as of late. :-\


    I'm with you on this.  So many scenes are given away in trailers nowadays.

    I was big fan of this trailer.  When the multiple lasers hit Royce, I was like  :o !  It gave me just enough to want more!
