New Predator Film ”Prey” influenced by God of War Video Game

God of War” is a blockbuster action-adventure video game franchise with roots that began on the PlayStation 2 console in 2005. Featuring a Spartan General-cum-God of War protagonist named Kratos and based in ancient mythology, the popular warrior became a massive hit with players and subsequently headlined a multitude of successful games over the past 17 years.

Recently, on January 14th, a PC port was released for the latest 2018 installment titled “God of War” which was billed as a reimagining of the franchise. Despite only being on the market for 10 days, reports indicated the PC port has already sold over a million copies.

While those sales numbers probably came as no surprise to fans very familiar with the game’s popularity, “Prey” director Dan Trachtenberg turned to Twitter to remark on the game’s port to PC success, revealing the game had some influence on his upcoming Predator film, “Prey”!

So how does this game influence “Prey”? We’re not sure, but this specific reimagining of “God of War” 2018 game featured Kratos living as a man beyond the shadow of the gods, where he must adapt to unfamiliar lands and venture with his son Atreus on a quest. This quest is to honor his son’s mother and her dying wish to have her ashes spread upon the highest of mountain peaks. And on this quest, Kratos teaches his son how to hunt and the ways of a hunter.

So is “Prey” influenced by theses teaching aspects of “God of War”, where Amber Midthunder’s character is shown the ways of the hunter during a perilous journey by someone in her tribe just like Kratos? Or is perhaps the Predator doing the teaching, showing her the ways of the hunt? We have no idea yet, but the possibilities certainly sound intriguing!

    The hype is getting to unreal levels.
    I'm trying to avoid spoilers and have accidentally read 2 different ones that contradict each other.
    So there's still hope I'm not spoiled.

    AvPGalaxy makes a very brief cameo around the 15:30 mark!

    That video was very entertaining, thanks for posting, hadn't heard of them before now

    Highly recommend a subscribe to them. They've given me plenty of laughs since 2015.

    All the spoilers I've got are from the trailer that I already knew and figured on account of this franchise not breaking from tradition at this point. I intentionally looked for one so I'm not annoyed with it later, which yeah I don't know why that had to change. Like it's a detail only we care about, but the GA wouldn't. Which is to say it changes nothing but some difference in context, but other than that it's just an odd thing to do at all since nobody likes getting told "well actually".

    Quote from: Marc505 on Jul 23, 2022, 05:57:43 PMAfter watching the spoiler free review, I'm going to take Adam and Mikey's advice and (for the first time with any movie in the Alien/Predator franchise since probably AvP) not read any more spoilers about it and just look forward to and enjoy it Friday night after next.

    Yeah, same here. I've watched Adams and Mikey's reactions and that's it for me, until August 5th.
    I'm considering doing the same, but I've gotten into the routine of visiting the forum regularly the last while. Hopefully big spoilers can stick to that Synopsis Spoiler thread

    Looking forward to it, and expecting to see the post count about 5 times higher than it is now by the time I look here again!

    Hope everyone enjoys Prey, how we need a good Predator film to reminisce over and dissect for months and years to come.

    I'm beginning to believe
    All of our lives we have fought this war...

    Meaning, I've really been waiting for this for about 25 years.
    Well, the hype is through the roof now.
    Now I need to figure out how to see the movie in the best format the earliest.
    This is my big annoyance with the Hulu/Disney+ thing is the 'best format' I have access to is my own TV and soundbar.

    I at least took the day off work so I can sit down with some snacks with the curtains closed and nothing else to distract me and make the most of what I have

    A big positive is that once you've done the first viewing you can rematch it again soon after.

    When I'm hyped for a film I sometimes have a hard time taking it all in. Can watch this as many times as you like now.

    Man it seems too good to be true that there is now a lingering possibility that we may finally be getting something solid after so many let downs over almost 2 decades of post P2 sequels.

    I'm still not sold until i see it for myself but my confidence is now quietley growing.

    If this is indeed "the one" it will be even more of a shame that we can't get to see on the big screen.

    Good to see RR have a positive view on the movie, i watch alot of there videos and they seem to have a fairly good nose for decent/shit movies so this kind of takes my scepticism meter down from 9/10 to maybe a 7.

    Also noticed a few more positive reactions popping up on Joblo, hope these aren't a repost:

    QuoteI had the privilege of working with @dannytrs and @20thcenturystudios to produce a poster for the SDCC world premiere of Prey.

    The movie is a blast, and @ambermidthunder rocks! Catch Prey from Aug 5 on @hulu (or @disneyplusuk in the U.K.)
