"While Holbrook does not have the star power Del Toro has, Fox is planning on beefing up the supporting cast."
Ahh yes, remember that statement when Holbrook was cast? If Trevante Who and Olivia What is their idea of a beefed up supporting cast, we're in trouble. I don't doubt that any of these people are talented, Trevante was terrific in Moonlight, but this is a bad portent.
Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hardy, Mark Ruffalo...to Boyd and Trevante. Wonderful! I mean at least we're getting cast news, I guess? Couldn't even get Michael B. Jordan?
Boyd Holbrook could be household by the time The Predator comes out. Early buzz around Logan suggests it could be Deadpool kinds of big, and maybe even worth a shout in the awards circuit (according to Ryan Reynolds).
Yeah I was Trevante who? But then I saw he was in Moonlight and that's on every top 10 end of year list I see.
Plus you've got Shane Black. 'Nuff said about that fella. I personally don't think Predator is big box office material. I'd like to see it, but even with Bradley Cooper I just think it's so unlikely to crack $100million domestic.
However, it's assembling such a talented under the radar cast & crew it's got potential classic written all over it at this point. I feel Alien Covenant is gonna be a behemoth, but The Predator stands maybe a better chance of being a better film.
