Predator 5 / ‘Skulls’ Completes Filming!

Filming has wrapped on the production of Predator 5 / ‘Skulls’! Cinematographer Jeff Cutter shared to his Instagram a clapboard with the film’s working title, displaying the last date of filming and what was presumably the last scene to be shot.

 Predator 5 / 'Skulls' Completes Filming!

“And that’s a wrap on Skulls! Can’t thank @dannytrs enough for inviting me along on this epic journey and entrusting me to help achieve his vision for this film! Thanks to a great cast led by @ambermidthunder, @dakota_beavers and @dd and much love to a brave Calgary crew for diving headfirst in with us! #skulls #predator”

In the out of focus background we can see a camera jib (crane) and mic boom by what appear to be arranged branches. Could this possibly be another hunting camp similar to what we saw in 2010’s Predators?

Along with another post celebrating the wrap, we now have confirmation of the casting of Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, Dane Diliegro and Stefany Mathias. As the film moves into its post-production phase, we’ll be eagerly anticipating the first teaser trailer to drop, hopefully before the year’s end.

We’ll update this post with further information on the production’s completion should it arise. Thanks to ace3g for sharing to our Forum.

    So perhaps Skulls mirrors Kratos and his son Atreus in "God of War", where the father teaches his son to hunt, in a quest to honor his mother's dying wish to spread her ashes on the highest mountain.

    But who's teaching Amber to hunt? To watch her? To teach her? Could it be a Predator?

    Probably she accomplishes the one thing no one else has been accomplished among the male hunters, and when she does, it finally pushes her tribe to embrace her as a hunter.

    Many streaming films don't advertise until a few weeks ahead these days. Long advertising campaigns are expensive and the high volume of content output means people have fairly short attention spans when it comes to what's coming out when.

    I'd bet we might not see anything until as close as 8 weeks from release. Could be more, but even theatrical films are using short pre-release ad periods these days

    Most people don't even know it exists. I also don't think ignoring comics really counts as retconning. The movies have never been beholden to the expanded media.

    Predator fans 100% know it exists, rarely have I seen forums not discuss this not once and not to mention all those views on the various video essays on it. General audience don't know but its not even a factor as its a neutral variable that can work in favor for the Predator fans. Alas, even with this particular expanded media was due to closely following what the brothers' mentioned for the pistol's origin in the behind the scenes of P2, it is still expanded media. It just factors down to if the film's take on the pistol is worse then the comic's. When expanded media is better than the films, then you know you f**ked up badly. I just hope they don't f**k up on this part at all.

    I like 1718, but the movies were never going to uphold the expanded canon if they have a different story to tell. 90% of the audience probably don't even know it exists.

    I always thought 1718 was a super disposable one shot and am genuinely surprised to see people worried about it.

    I'm surprised that some people think the opposite. Its a short but very well done story that doesn't overstay its welcome and its a nice mini background story to Greyback's possession of the pistol. That alone is why so many people love it. Plus, seeing how retconning is done these days, I don't trust the producers to do it correctly and perhaps ruin this too. Just keep some things left alone, not everything like Greyback or the 1718 story has to be shoehorned in. That path rarely works on any media ever.

    If I had to deal with another retcon, fine. It's in service to the films not the other way around even if the films tend to adapt stuff from the extended lore.

    That all being said you could still have 1718 kind of work with a name change or they just happened to have the same name given Hunting Grounds does have a flintlock trophy. So unlike the situation with Weyland you could have both still work. More than one Predator has a flintlock trophy and while it might not be Greyback anymore, Golden Angel could be its own character now having encountered his own Adolini. People can have the same name, it's just not the same Adolini as the one Greyback encounters. Alternatively for any reprint they could change the name to fit in whatever canon they go for.

    We could easily have Adolini the pirate, and Adolini whatever he is if he's in Prey.

    Introducing a different flintlock trophy into the Predator film franchise and it not being THE flintlock, is not a good idea in my opinion... and would cause more unnecessary general confusion than I'm willing to endure.

    I'm not so bothered with 1718 being retconned either. The comics are in support of theatrical, so it's not unusual that this happens. I enjoy 1718 but it's never been one of those ones I hold on up high personally.

    I mean it would be neat, going by what Voodoo said, if that 1718 mini story actually became the opener to Prey. Kind of like that deleted beginning sequence in AVP where we had that once scene of the Whaling Station in the early 1900s.

    You heathen! :D Digital coloring? Bah! 1718 should be held up high for its oil painted pages alone! Those are gallery pieces!

    Oil painted ? Looks more like combination of watercolors, color penciles and some ink to me


    I've juist done some bit of Wikipedia reading on 1718's artist, Igor Kordej, and found this:

    QuoteBecause of his speed as an artist, at his peak, Kordej was producing artwork for three or four monthly books at the same time. However, as a result, he has attracted heavy criticism for the quality of his art, especially from the readers. Eventually he got fired from Marvel in April 2004.

    Marvel fired somebody 'cause of his/her artwork's quality ? Big f**king LOL

    IDK, just a really sudden feeling, and the setting that could favor that also. I mean, possible europeans columnists arriving at one point in the movie, the heroin and predator ending up in an unneasy alliance... I could totally see that happening.

    Hmm.

    The question is will Naru be saying those magical words to the Elder, only for the Elder to repeat those magical words to Harrigan so many years later....

    Idk about Predator allying itself with the tribe, as there is no real motivation I can see a Predator to do so, rather instead I can see desperate Spaniards allying with Naru and her tribe to be rid of the creature that was also hunting them too. Teeth clenching teamwork trope, ya know?

    Oh and that's a surprising thought Voodoo, I didn't think you would want to retcon such a great comic book classic?

    I'd actually prefer that.
