Predator Dark Ages Poster Predator Dark AgesPredator Dark Ages is a Predator fan film set in Dark Ages that follows a group of Templar Knights that encounter a creature in the forests of England. The fan film was first announced back in June 2014 and the filmmakers started a Kickstarter campaign to get funding for it. They were looking to get up to £20,000 to make a full-length 30-minute fan film but managed to meet the minimum amount of £5000 which would see them produce an extended trailer. They received another £7000 from a private investor which allowed them to make the full 30-minute fan film. The cast and crew reportedly worked for free.

Predator Dark Ages was directed by James Bushe with cinematography by Simon Rowling. The cast is led by Adrian Bouchet as Thomas (who played Sven in Alien vs Predator) with Philip Lane as the Predator. The fan film was shot in Newbury in the county of Berkshire, UK. A rarity for a fan film is that most of the cast and crew involved here have previous experience in filmmaking and acting. The film was released to Kickstarter backers on May 22, 2015 while it premiered at MCM Comic-Con in London the next day. It was released on YouTube to the public on May 26, 2015. Critical and fan reception has been quite positive.

Official Description

Our Predator fan film is set in the Dark Ages, it is a period in history where mankind was plagued by disease and famine, as well as having to live and die by the sword. Our film follows a group of war-torn Templar knights who have returned from the Eastern lands, back to England, only to find that the enemy is now a lot closer and a lot more deadly than before. Throughout time the Predator has always looked for the greatest warriors to fight in battle, and with this short film we will see him put to the test against the some of the best history has ever seen, the Templar Knights. Their battle with the Predator is the thing Myths and Legends are made of.

  1. Everyone invovled in the making of this should be proud. Well written story, good production values and believable acting by characters who look like they have lived real lives (not like actors who are getting paid to show up for the day). Well done, keep making movies and telling stories.
