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.

    Nothing's really "erased".

    You're still free to enjoy those old stories and their different continuities.

    Something being "canon" doesn't automatically raise it up to a level of sainthood.

    It's only relevant when you want to see how story X relates to stories Y and Z.

    I suppose it doesn’t really matter that much, i just got used to the idea that they had been a large part of human history in AVP and other media, now that doesn’t mean I’m not open to change, there are just a few stories i don’t want to be erased (like they seem to do all the time these days, looking at you Star Wars) because there are a few outstanding ones, now they will probably remain unaffected though, even if they make this their first visit to earth.

    I feel it's not really as much of an issue as it's being made out. Has that much of the franchise, EU or otherwise, actually done much with them hunting here for thousands of years over the last two and a bit decades?

    I know there are a few stories, but I never got the impression it was a particularly important aspect. Most stories are contemporary or near future and don't necessarily lean on a millennia-spanning relationship.

    I'm not advocating the idea of this film being first contact, but I don't feel it's really throttling anything meaningfully.

    If we don't see a trailer or teaser by Christmas of this year, then I believe they are going to release a trailer near or close to release.

    Objectively, having the Predator visit Earth in the 17th century simply limits the potential universe building of the Predator series. Profit wise, means less means to rake in that cash and creative wise it confines the series into a corner. I mean if there was a film of a Predator hunting during the Mongol Invasion of Japan during the 12th century, people will line up to see it. Sure, someone can say samurai still existed in the 17th century too, but with the Mongols in a interesting time period of high conflict? Don't cork that bottle if ya know whats good for ya, but hey its the suits, they usually don't know good shit if it bit them in the ass

    AVP isn’t so much my concern as I can take or leave it, but the comics go back almost as far as the first film itself, the first comic was released in 1989 just a year and a half after Predator was released in theaters and a good portion of the comics are very good stories, that I think are fathoms better than any Predator movie after Predator and Predator 2, completely ignoring the comics hurts the continuity and is not good for the story or franchise in my personal opinion.

    As a hardcore fan, this is an issue for you. The average moviegoer likely doesn't even know there are comics to contradict, and they're where the $$$ is - there just aren't enough fanatics to pay the bills on a studio film, and so keeping them happy is secondary at absolute best.

    Bloody hope not!

    Hey, why just have the Predator fans suffer. Now we can all commiserate!  :laugh:

    Hahah! Can just see it now, Tom opening the doors to his armoury and whispering “Hello, my old friend” to the Resurrection mould à la Bruce Wayne and the bat suit  :(

    Did they serve crab meat ?

    It's a movie series. The vast majority of people going to see it wont have read any of the comics (or likely know they even exist). Ignoring comics doesn't hurt continuity at all as the comics aren't part of the movie continuity


    Just to add, I'm not against movies ret-conning other movies (I'd be happy for future Predator movies to disregard The Predator and both AVP movies as they aren't any good) but Predator is a movie franchise first and foremost so it's not on the movies to respect the storylines of the comics

    I’m a little disappointed that they are saying that this film will be the Predator’s/Yautja’s first visit to earth, ignoring every bit of established canon. According to many comic stories and even the AVP films they have been around much longer than the time period this film is set in. I know recently they found footprints in North America that show humans have been in North America for 23,000 years, but I’m pretty sure this film takes place around the 14-1500s.

    Wasn't she a bit young to play Kee's mom ? I know it's an other era and people had children at a very young age, plus movie make-up etc, but still, she looks as young as Kee here !

    Are you talking the Cheyenne Seleah audition Clubroot posted above? If so, yeah, based on her audition videos, she tried out for the roll of "Kee", but it went Amber Midthunder. (Posting that video really didn't apply to the Stefany conversation here and I'm assuming that's where the confusion lies.)

    But actor Stefany Mathias on the otherhand, who's auditions are no longer online, she tried out for the role of "Aruka" and the dialogue spoken seemed to clearly identify Aruka as Kee's mother.

    But now that someone updated IMDB crediting Stephany as "Sumu", I was curious if she's really playing Kee's mother, the role we know as "Aruka"... or perhaps she was just casted in another, maybe lesser role.

    Shout out to the NES on top of the CRT. There was a Predator game also for the Nintendo if I remember. It was sort of like Contra but with Scorpions

    So one has to wonder; who's gonna be doing the music?
    One hopes to be Alan Silvestri but I highly doubt he's gonna make a return

    I've been quietly praying for Silvestri since the announcement!

    I can't think of anyone but him who could do an effective Predator score.

    And he would be the guy to definitely incorporate Native American instruments into his score.

    Silvestri said he would score another Predator film if asked, right around the time of Shane Black's entry. Let's hope Dan Trachtenberg tries to get him for "Skulls" at least, through all the obstacles necessary to do so (if any).
