The Prey Teaser Trailer Is Here! Film Releases August 5th!

It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for! 20th Century Studios have dropped the first teaser trailer for Dan Trachtenberg’s upcoming fifth Predator film, Prey!

Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, “Prey” is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

“Prey” is directed by Dan Trachtenberg, written by Patrick Aison (“Jack Ryan,” “Treadstone”), and produced by John Davis (“Jungle Cruise,” “The Predator”) and Jhane Myers (“Monsters of God”), with Lawrence Gordon (“Watchmen”), Marty Ewing (“It: Chapter Two”), James E. Thomas, John C. Thomas and Marc Toberoff (“Fantasy Island”) serving as executive producers.

The filmmakers were committed to creating a film that provides an accurate portrayal of the Comanche and brings a level of authenticity that rings true to its Indigenous peoples. Myers, an acclaimed filmmaker, Sundance Fellow and member of the Comanche nation herself, is known for her attention and dedication to films surrounding the Comanche and Blackfeet nations and her passion for honoring the legacies of the Native communities. As a result, the film features a cast comprised almost entirely of Native and First Nation’s talent, including Amber Midthunder (“The Ice Road,” “Roswell, New Mexico”), newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp (“Sooyii”), Michelle Thrush (“The Journey Home”), Julian Black Antelope (“Tribal”).

The trailer also comes with the announcement of Prey’s official release date, the 5th of August, exclusively on Hulu in the United States! There is still no news on the international release, but we would expect it to be available via Star around the same time.

    I think my biggest concern is that they play things too safe and it ends up feeling like a rehash of how the first movie plays out.

    Otherwise I'm pretty hyped to see what they do with this; I really like Trachtenberg's work so that's keeping me optimistic. I really want a gnarly looking predator design in this; as amazing as Jungle Hunter's look is I hope the craft one that is much more primal and menacing looking. I also want to see them play up on some Native American shamanism.

    But movies and comics are a totally different ballgame. What may sounds cool in a comic may very well look ridiculous and obnoxious in a movie. That's a big risk I'm not willing to take anymore.

    I was thinking it might start with native Americans vs big foot then the predator comes and kills Bigfoot. It ends with the Predator teaming up with the main Comanche woman against a 3rd party,  likely colonizers and that is how Greyback gets the pistol that he gave to Harrigan.

    Then takes her on his ship to be trained in the yautja ways like AVP Prey. If it is greyback then we know that he does not due since he is in Predator 2 and it is likely that the Comanche main character lives too.  Maybe he is impressed with the way she fought or some of their tactics used so he brings her oboard to learn more of their ways to make themselves better hunters since the Comanche were so good at tracking and stuff.

    That way all sides get something positive out of the movie. It doesn't disrespect native Americans and fans of Predator finally get one that lives.

    I am really looking forward to Prey. It will be cool to see a historical setting of native Americans vs a yautja.

    The Comanche were know as fierce warriors so it is fitting that a predator would take interest.


    As for people who are upset that it is a woman, I  have confidence that they will do her justice. She will not become a Mary Sue or a disney Pocahontas. She will likely be a well fleshed out character. She will probably use her brains and find a way to win.  Same kind thing that Dutch did. He was using a bow and arrow too and in the end outwitted it with a trap.

    That or at least team up at the end vs a second foe, after earning each other's respect (if it is Greyback since he is alive as of Predator 2).

    Quote from: SiL on May 31, 2022, 11:41:04 AMPredators aren't interested in killing. They're interested in hunting. Which involves killing, but it'a process.
    *City Hunter has entered the chat*
    You know what I mean  :P Yes he butchered a lot of people en masse, but his prize was Harrigan - whom he could have killed easily at many points, but didn't.

    Predators aren't just here to slaughter as many people as possible as quickly as possible. They want the hunting process.

    Although sure I guess some want both.

    I think the thing a lot of the "Native Americans couldn't beat a Predator!" crowd are overlooking is the fact that the Predator in the first film could've annihilated Arnie's entire team in a couple of minutes if it had wanted to. It chose not to.

    Sure, a Predator could make mincemeat of a tribe of Comanches without breaking a sweat. But where's the challenge or fun in that?

    Quote from: Voodoo Magic on May 30, 2022, 12:28:12 PMYeah, there is usually always some luck involved in these movies where the protagonist is so unevenly matched with an antagonist. You still don't say luck defeated the villian. You say the protagonist defeated the villian. Dutch had the resourcefulness and was quick-thinking enough that even when things were bleak, to use the load of the pulley system against the Predator to win. The log did not fall by accident. Never stop fighting until the fight is over.

    Quote from: Yautja888 on May 29, 2022, 07:41:11 PMThe spear and the arrow Dutch used had explosives attached to it, hence how the predator was wounded and his cloacking device damaged.So I don't get your point.

    You know what else damages a cloaking device? Water. Do we think Native Americans had water?

    As for the Predator itself, neither explosive weapon seemed to do much damage beyond annoying it. They certainly didn't slow it down any.

    As others have pointed out, Arnie ultimately finished it off with a piece of wood.

    I would never say luck killed the Jungle Hunter, but it was far more a factor than in any of the other films. Dutch lays his traps, tries to funnel the Predator a specific way, the Predator notices and goes around, and still ends up in the exact same place Dutch wanted him to be anyway. Had the film shown Dutch intending for that to happen, I'd say it was less of a factor.

    And sure, Dutch still needed to be aware of the positioning and everything but it doesn't change the convivence of it. I think I'm always going to consider that luck played a far larger role there than the other films (and even the Alien films).

    But it's all more to the point that there's many different factors that contribute towards the Predators defeat in the first three films, with a lot of it coming down to simply being a very back-to-basics approach. And I don't think anyone here is arguing against that? I think that's generally other areas of the interwebz.

    Quote from: BigDaddyJohn on May 30, 2022, 05:44:31 PMI never agreed to the argument (that I heard here and there) saying Comanches wouldn't be worthy adversaries for a predator in the first place.

    It all depends on execution as always, a predator being defeated in a credible manner by a comanche young woman is totally plausible. There are a lot of ways for that to happen.

    Ruse, resilience, knowledge of the terrain, and a good dose of luck among things.

    Hell you can apply this to anything in the past really. What can a samurai do to a Predator that not only outclasses them physically but also technologically? Katana steel isn't that strong and would perhaps shatter in combat against alien alloy steel that the wristblades or its armor are made from, and despite being masters of the bow, nothing compared to a plasmacaster. Spartan brawn and bronze metal will still stand no chance for the same reasons, Zulu warriors, Knights Templar, or 19th century French Foreign Legion, all of them fall into the same argument when you think about it overall. But most people don't think that, and we all know why, hence why else would they point out the fact that the protag is a woman so much?
  9. Prez
    I generally don't understand the negativity towards the idea that (a smaller) underdog can defeat the big bad. It's a well versed story telling trope (David vs Goliath). Isn't that the premise for most films though. Winning against all the odds with everything against the protagonist?

    I guess it's a mix of things coming from the protagonists. Resilience, ruse, and of course luck.

    Dutch is pretty lucky with the log at the end, and is very lucky when discovering that mud does him a big favor against jungle hunter.

    Quote from: Kradan on May 29, 2022, 07:55:50 PMPredator was literally defeated by a log. A log
    And really, the actual implement doesn't matter. The main predator in the first 3 movies (I'm ignoring The Predator because f**k that movie) was defeated by the main characters intelligence and I always thought that was kind of the point

    I think it was more than just the intelligence - Dutch had pure luck on his side, Jungle Hunter saw the trap and side-stepped it, but still ended up in the right spot. Harrigan had City Hunter's arrogance in leaving himself open like that. Royce had a bit of team work in place too, with Isabelle.

    It's a big part of how the Predators get defeated, but it does always come down to the back-to-basics approach which is why I've always felt a historical setting would be ideal. It's not like the actual things that defeated the Predator are future warefare.

    Defeated by a trap using a log, but you have to put that log up in the trees.
    Same problem.Frankly it's better if the predator don't die this time in my opinion.

    so many people reacted by saying it looks like low budget

    Shock, horror, setting a movie in America looks like a lot of other movies we've seen before. It has sometimes been a sign of a low budget, but it's also entirely appropriate  here. As you're implying, it's a not entirely fair association.
  17. BigDaddyJohn
    I really like what I'm seeing here. The teaser did greatly what it had to do, tease. Hoping they don't show too much after that.

    There will possibly (probably ?) be only one big trailer after that considering we're close enough to the release date and I'm fine with that.
  18. Lefty
    Teaser looks good so far. Hopefully there's lots of atmosphere and tension this time around.

    I'm also really hoping the predator looks great. Obviously I want the film to be good first and foremost, clearly that's the most important thing. But man, I'm personally really over ADI predators.

    I'm sure Trachtenberg had specific ideas for the design, but after 3 previous films I just don't see ADI changing their approach to their mouth / mandibles.
  19. Yautja888
    Unlike the previous movies, there isn't any noticable bad mistake yet.Maybe the fact that they've used the good old sound effect of the laser is a good sign, maybe our predator won't be another useless crabator this time.Better yet, the Grayback theory is still possible, and the best way to go.
    The countryside setting can easily give a sensation of cheapness,I think that's why
    so many people reacted by saying it looks like low budget.It will be all about the artistic direction, and the music or its absence.That I cannot judge on this teaser alone. Fingers crossed.
  20. funk_master_chunk
    I was happy when I saw the teaser for this the other day. I think it's given me a lot more confidence in the film - I just hope the practical fx and suits are up to scratch.


    Also I think it's a crying shame that Trachtenberg's secret reveal was spoiled. Could you imagine watching the trailer for a film called Prey and seeing some young Native American girl sprining for her life? First thoughts would be some horrendous "Custer's gone Wild" type scenario. Then for the minor jump scare where she's "rescued" by a clan member. And then the dot sight reveal! It would've been so Left field and amazing.

    I just hope they don't turn out to be Billy's ancestors and they focus on the supernatural "powers" he has in the novelisation of the original.

    Quote from: HuDaFuK on May 20, 2022, 12:00:11 PMI've never associated digital filming with DTV movies myself, but maybe that's just because I'm such a fan of Michael Mann.

    Similarly Band of Brothers intentionally used a very muted colour palette to evoke a sense of time and place, and that show looked anything but cheap. Maybe they're just doing something similar here.

    I'm aware that digital is primarily how movies are shot these days and it can be done well (the technology has come along way) and indeed, muted colours can be used effectively.  It's a matter of personal taste.  I wasn't speaking for anyone else when I said that I thought that the footage looked straight-to-streaming.  It's just my own subjective opinion, as it's absolutely what the footage reminded me of.

    It's the cinematography, which lacks depth in my opinion.  It looks kinda flat.  That and the muted colours and possibly the fact that it looks to be shot on digital.  It lacks the texture which I commonly associate with the theatrical Predator movies.  It very much looks like a straight-to-streaming film (which it is) to my eyes, at least going by this brief snippet of footage.

    Quote from: St_Eddie on May 19, 2022, 09:48:09 PMI don't think anyone is making sweeping claims about the movie as a whole, nor have they claimed to be.
    I have absolutely seen people doing that.

    And given that you don't really seem to have explained why you think this film looks cheap and unprofessional - I've definitely seen films, on TV or otherwise, where I get the impression the cameraman doesn't know how to set up an aesthetically pleasing shot to save his life.

    I absolutely don't get that feeling from anything in this tester trailer. I'd love to know where you did. (And I'm not being patronising; I really would love to know what you're seeing that I'm not.)
