Prey Early Reactions Are Here! And They’re Positive!

With Prey’s world premiere at Dan Diego Comic Con having recently finished, the reactions are starting to hit social media (and our own forums from AvP Galaxy members in attendance) and they’re very positive! Many are calling it best film next to the original.

Our own podcast co-host and website staffer Adam “RidgeTop” Zeller was in attendance, along with frequent collaborator Mikey! You can check out their opinions below.

And, now, the many tweets that are filling Twitter’s #Prey and #PreyMovie feed can be seen below!

In conjunction with Prey’s premiere, 20th Century Studios and Hulu also released a brand new poster for the film depicting Amber Midthunder’s Naru leaping from a cliff onto a giant portrayal of the Feral Predator’s face (very David and Goliath).

    I've already seen the damn movie but I have this excitement like I've not even watched the movie yet. So stoked to see in theaters again tonight, that it almost feels like the build up before SDCC. I am just so freaking excited to watch it again and I think that's telling me how much I enjoyed the film.

    Quote from: HuDaFuK on Aug 04, 2022, 12:07:25 PMAs in 5am tonight? I don't think I'm quite dedicated enough to get up that early to watch it :laugh: But that's cool if it'll be available first thing, I've got nothing else going on tomorrow.

    I think it will be available from 08:00 tomorrow. Appears to be that way with past content on Disney.
    I think the idea is that because it's a Hulu release in the states, where usually the Disney+ stuff here is also Disney+ in the US, that it might work a bit different but literally only time will tell haha

    I've booked the afternoon off work so won't be watching it until closer to 14:00 anyway. Should be on by then. 😁
    I've done the same, though I'm hoping to get to it by 10am or so (after I go out and get some snacks of course)

    Not long now! 😬😬😬

    The afternoon is perfect for me. The ideal time for tea and biscuits. 😋

    Quote from: HuDaFuK on Aug 04, 2022, 11:43:38 AMJust set up a Disney+ subscription purely for this. I'll only keep it for the month but I can't not watch this with the reception it's getting.

    Still gutted it's not gonna be in cinemas but I'm looking forward to seeing it tomorrow. Anyone have any idea when it's going live in the UK?
    Seems to be either 5am or 7am (So midnight either Eastern or Pacific US time) though no one is 100% sure

    fwiw

    a lot of fans have asked for a female lead in predator for a long time and a male lead in alien. weaver in alien changed people s perception of a woman s role in dangerous male dommiated jobs. and cameron pushed this moreso in aliens
    . i really dont get what the fuss is about.

    maybe disney have
       listened.


    so far the demeannor of the predator in this film  is

    he is one effing badass.....

    looks great

    fwiw

    I've said this in another thread but I'll also repeat it here. My take away from the film was nothing to do with going against any gender norms. Unless I missed something - and I'll find out tomorrow - what I took from it was

    Spoiler
    that the tribe/her mother was more interested in Naru's medical skills which she demonstrates fairly early on and regularly throughout the film, thinking she has more to offer through that than any desire to go hunting. At no point do I recall anyone saying to her "no, it's not a woman's place" or anything like that.

    Quote from: newagescamartist on Aug 03, 2022, 03:41:44 PMCritical Drinker and HeelvsBabyface coming out as hard as they did regarding the trailer turned me off. They're so hyper-sensitive to female protagonists. I follow them, but I had an intuitive feeling that Prey was different from a typical "the message" film they so often rip on. They're partly the reason why this movie faces such an incredible uphill battle for sci-fi fans. Most people don't even care that the director's last movie was freaking awesome. Female protagonist, oh it's "woke" they say. Ughhhhhh. Props to Mr. H for keeping it real.

    If they are so good critics, we should expect them to review the plot (a sci-fi tale set in a distinctive historical period), the characters, worldbuilding, the music or even deliver aesthetic criticism on Feral design, CGI, practical FX and the cinematography of the film.

    If they're that smart, they should eat their misogynistic rhetoric so they can judge Naru for what she is: a lead female character from the Comanche nation,  and based on reactions so far; an absolutely superb one.  So, if it works, then  should be no problema with  her defeating the Predator. After all, execution is what matter and confirmation bias could negatively affect objective criticism.

    That being said, I don't like to watch their content, but I will definitely watch their review on this film, for the sake of curiosity.  😂

    So, we'll see. 🤔

    So I said I would allow "woke" discussion if it didn't make me want to claw my eyeballs out. Those last 6 pages made me want to claw them out. Look folk, I view this the same way I view any discussions on positives or negatives - I only care how you present your opinions. If you can't discuss like adults with actual constructive content I will just get rid of it.

    I know what you mean. As much as I also do not like Mr. H bashing on the film before release solely because of a female lead, at least he is able to give the movie a fair chance once he has seen it.

    Its nice that Mr. H likes the movie on it's own merits but regardless of that along with Critical Drinker he was one of the people who popularized the misogynistic stuff about a female lead. Even the way that he promounced "woman" as "wahmen" in the review is the way that is popular with misogynist.

    Spoilers.

    Spoiler
    So the speargun's projectiles are "smart" in the sense that they go where the targetting lasers go. I don't like the way that Feral seems to not realize this when trying to use the speargun when he doesn't have his mask on because it does contribute towards his death.

    It's fully established how it works, we see how it's to the detriment prior to the end of the film, but it just feels like it dumbs Feral down too much by him not remembering. Granted, there's other circumstances going off and etc, but I feel it could have been a bit better handled.

    Spoiler
    Sort of see where you're coming from but I think he's just too incensed by this point and just used his projectiles in blind rage; he's also battered, wounded, almost drowned in mud... Ol feral mate is a proud and cocky boi, too.  ;D

    Quote from: Necronomicon II on Aug 03, 2022, 01:29:58 PMMan I'm so satisfied right now. That was awesome. Just bloody simple (and yes bloody  ;D ) and precise. Beautifully shot, performed and executed. Just, well, damn. Catching it in the cinema was a treat, wish it was getting a general cinema release, regardless, Predator fans are in for a treat. Some of the kills in this, wowee, made me giddy as hell.  ;D


    I'm giddy just reading this.

    Quote from: St_Eddie on Jul 23, 2022, 07:07:17 AMI don't know, much less trust, anyone on this site.  Sorry to be an arsehole but quite frankly, most people here like AVP: Requiem.  Not exactly a trustworthy source.  Having said that, I hope Prey is good.  Time will tell.

    I mean I like AVPR, but most here don't, I wish I wasn't so alone...

    Quote from: St_Eddie on Jul 23, 2022, 06:57:01 AMLook, maybe the film is great.  I don't know, but the early reactions for movies are always positive.  For example, the early reactions to The Rise of Skywalker were glowing.  That's a result of access media.  It's a folly to put stock in early reactions.

    https://www.avpgalaxy.net/2018/09/07/the-predator-early-reactions-are-in/


    I actually enjoy watching AVPR from time to time... mainly because I just take it for what it is, essentially a B-movie from the 80's made in the 2000's.

    Anyway, totally excited for Prey!

    I expect proper critic reviews to be less kind to the movie than it actually deserves. 

    Remember just because it doesn't have a good Metacritic/Rotten Tomatoes score doesn't mean you wont enjoy it

    Quote from: funk_master_chunk on Jul 31, 2022, 08:32:38 PMEither way the majority of the feedback and responses have been positive. Most of them also believe it to be the 2nd best entry in tbe series.   

    Even if it's the third best, I would still be ok with that.

    I'm still finding it funny that some are finding it a bad thing if this new movie is good. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Prey being good, if not the best sequel takes absolutely nothing away from the previous films. They can both be good and that's a great thing. So many are acting like it's blasphemy that those who have seen it are saying it's good, maybe even the best sequel. Don't we want good Predator movies again?

    Oh yeah - Absolutely!!

    The first is always going to be the best for me as, like I'm sure most people on here did, I grew up on a diet of Arnie films in the early 90s and he was my hero.

    The second never hits the highs of the original but it's still a very good film. Strangely I used to feel much more unnerved by P2 than I ever did P1 - to the point where even on a recent viewing I felt the same unease at the exact same part in the film. (Where they chase CH through the subway and you see him run away and turn the corner - no clue why that part affected me haha).

    So yeah, even if this was 3rd best, it'd still be a huge improvement on the other sequels.

    Just cannot wait to see this on Friday now!!

    Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Aug 01, 2022, 08:39:06 AMHonestly, it baffles me when portions of a fanbase seems so intent on not liking something. I may go into films with expectations or worries like I did with Predators (never been so pleasantly surprised) or The Predator (I greatly soured on this one after watching it a few more times), but I never go in actively wanting to dislike a film.
    People want things to fit into the boxes they've imagined for them and don't like it when things step out of that box. They attack, the deride, they condescend, they dismiss, etc.

    Quote from: Lionhart on Jul 31, 2022, 06:29:45 PMWhat about the reviews over here?
    We got (7.7%) that saying it could have been better.

    I suppose there's always going to be an element of "they could've/should've done this.." with every film - especially one belonging to a franchise which is so beloved and has been handed the shitty end of the stick with the last few installments.


    But for a film with such a small budget (comparatively speaking) I doubt they'd be able to pay so many people to shill the film.

    My guess for the 7.7% you mentioned is either they're peeved at specific parts of the film, or they went in with a specific "I wanted x to happen and it didn't" mentality.

    Either way the majority of the feedback and responses have been positive. Most of them also believe it to be the 2nd best entry in tbe series.

    Quote from: Mike's Monsters on Jul 31, 2022, 05:53:13 PMIMDb user ratings aren't considered reliable and shouldn't be factored in to the film's quality. Too many troll review bombers in a space like that. Wouldn't worry too much about it.
    Well, maybe not reliable before the movie officially opens, but after the movie opens i consider the ratings reliable if it's a good movie or not imho.
    But still in the pre-opening days so there is still hope. :-)
    I just want this movie to be a success.

    There will still be bombers after it releases. Prehistoric Planet for some reason had a huge attack against it on IMDB post release, and mainly because it was behind a subscription service on AppleTV, which I don't think warrants review bombing.

    Most people in the industry don't even bother giving IMDB reviews the time of day, much like they don't take stock on RT scores. You can say you mostly like a movie, but if you give too many complaints it'll look rotten, even if you have praise. The systems are flawed and shouldn't be taken as gospel when it comes to the quality of a film.
