"There is a still from the movie and a logo which will be dropped later this morning "

Incredibly bummed that I'm not gonna be able to see this in a theater (I really feel like Disney is sweeping all of their theatrical Fox properties under the rug - The Last Duel barely getting any promotion and only lasting two weeks in most venues was absurd), but happy to have a 2022 release date confirmed, love the new title, and love the synopsis.

I'm still hoping we'll see a theatrical release!! Also preferred Skulls as a title.  :P But keen to see our first official still later!

Yes, I prefered the title "Skulls" as well, but I'm still very happy that Predator is not included in the title for this one!

I can't wait to see how they market this!

"Skulls" was very good but in the long term, Prey being the inverse of Predator is probably beneficial. I dig it.

Show me what you got, Trachtenberg. Rewatched 10 Cloverfield Lane back in September, love it just as much now as when it released.

We've got our timeframe now though. 1700s. Official announcement that Midthunder is playing the lead (we all knew it). And a name change. She's Naru.

Interesting info. I'm totally down for one off Predator anthology movies to go straight to streaming if it keeps things interesting with the stories being told on screen and they have adequate budgets to tell those stories.

Lets be honest. The only good predator movies are Predator and Predator 2. From the time when one needs poweful, well trained, true warriors to take down an Yatuja. Now they put slender silly teens to do the same job. Politically correct garbage.

Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Nov 12, 2021, 07:11:25 PM
Prey - to me at least - is the first one since Predator 2 that actually seems to understand the appeal of the original film. Take a film genre/setting, drop a Predator in, and watch chaos ensue.

Among many other problems that they have, Predators and The Predator try too hard to worldbuild and establish a fully realized universe. I admittedly like Predators' game preserve planet concept, but the film itself can't support the weight of that and just kind of fizzles out by the middle and never picks itself back up (maybe if Rodriguez had personally directed the film he might have been able to inject a bit more energy into it, who knows). And I don't even know where to start with The Predator...

Predator 2's worldbuilding, on the creature side of things, isn't a narrative crutch and instead works in service of letting us explore a bit about the film's particular Predator's personality (he's kind of a dick! :D).

The battle was still going on in the 1700s in the Texas area of the country. Mexico I believe too. Colonists from Spain versus the Comanche.

America is petty big though, so I suppose it's possible that this girl's tribe had not yet come into contact with Europeans.

If it was filmed in Canada it may be set in the American North-West, which was still mostly unexplored by Europeans at that time. First Europeans only landed in Washington in 1775.

The Plains are South Central and Southwestern, so there would have already been Spanish colonists there during that period.  If they're setting it in early 1700's, then there would probably not have been contact.  If it's set in the mid-1700's, then there would have been contact with the Spanish.

So they're probably just setting it during the early 1700's, just prior to first contact with the Spanish.  Either way, the claw marks on the Prey script looks like bear claws so, here's hoping we get to see a Grizzly  :)

i think the scale of the predator in the photo released is intentional. NGL, if the predator is gigantic its going to pull a really interesting twist to the whole franchise. But then maybe the female lead is suppose to be super tiny. like 4 foot 3 or something.

...and have that prey view the Predator through a mythological / supernatural prism.

Yep, agreed, it feels like "Prey" will be the first film since "Predator 2" to check all the right boxes.  1. Unique setting, 2. Unique protagonist and 3. Mythological prism

Well, it's not a direct quote but you guessed right - I was thinking about you while writing it. And I don't see much of a difference between "checking the right boxes" and "seemingly doing everything right".  Do you ?

Anyway, not trying to take away from your excitement. But I'll stay cautiously optimistic untill the movie comes out. We had bloody Shane Black directing previous one and we all know how that turned out

P. S. Maybe I shouldn't have used italics ?

They might not show their hand if there's more than one Predator. Remember Stephen Hopkins kept denying to the press that there was multiple Predators in "Predator 2", and we all know how that turned out.  :)

Maybe it's lost in translation. But checking all the boxes basically means (let's use a cooking analogy) that it has the right ingredients. But it still takes a chef to prepare it adequately.  :)

Back to the topic: in regards to the title change - to be frank,"Skulls", especially now in retrospect, sounded a little silly to me. I get the connection to Predators but all I could imagine from hearing it wss an image of cartoony skeletons dancing. It sounds more like a code name for the movie than an actual title. Like, what is this movie supposed to be about judging from the title ?  About bones ? About human body parts ?  About maniac surgeon gone on a killing spree ?

What I'm trying to say is that "Prey" IMO is much more related to the whole hunting theme  (which is what Predator is about, at its core) and better at conveying what the film is gonna be about

How dare they make a film with a female lead after four movies with male leads! Where will it end?!

The Predator woke movie has a lead that is not a big macho bodybuilder!!  >:( ... so how on Earth is it possible for this skinny girl to beat the alien hunter?! ::) The dark times we live.  :o🙀

Edit: The world is such a crazy place, and I want someone to get me down from here.  :'(

While I'm not as worried as BlackDestiny, cautious approach is adviced. Just look what they did with Ghostbusters in 2016, just look at it Damn It!

I feel like that was a bit different though. That was shamelessly taking a movie with an all-male lead cast and replacing them with women.

Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely in the cautious camp with this, but I'm not sure that's a fair comparison, because even if you take out the female lead it seems like they're trying to do something a bit different with this movie.

Iam OK with 2016 Ghostbusters. At least with Slovak dubbing. Never saw it in English language.

The historical setting is what has me most interested, because that's something I've wanted them to do for ages.

Even though I loved two of the actresses in the film "Bridesmaids", Ghostbusters 2016 was just a painful experience for me. Too much ad libbing in what felt like a constant unfunny effort to out do each other with their wit. But I think it's wrong to attribute the poor quality of that film to females starring. An all-male cast could have been easily substituted in that production and I believe it would have been equally as bad the way that entire movie was constructed. But regardless, I think what is important here is to form an opinion after actually seeing the film. I would say everyone should afford that opportunity with "Prey".

Yeah, I wasn't trying to imply it was shit because it had women in it, just that it struck me as one of those incredibly cynical feminist remakes where they just went "I know! Let's take a successful film that starred men... but replace them with women!" and that was the full extent of the effort put into it.

If there's definitely one thing that got me excited regarding Prey, it's the setting. It's a great one to put a predator in ! Depending on many other factors though, it can also be shitty. I stay on the optimistic side for now.

I liked the idea of a Predator movie in Feudal Japan with samurais, plus one in 1715.  :laugh:

So yeah, I can empathize with the feeling. However, with interesting setting and everything could still suck with the wrong execution. But it seems to me that we have already seen everything about the Predator hunting humans in the modern age, so I fantasized about the past or future.

I have to second that notion of Feudal Japan. Just got Ghost Of Tsushima, (I know, late much) and the entire atmosphere and storytelling of the game was just phenomenal. Since the release of Samurai Predator for Predator Hunting Grounds alongside GOT, it just made the want for a Predator film during the Japanese-Mongolian conflict of that same time period so much stronger. Seeing the Predator observe the conflict and hunting each side for their strongest warriors to claim.

Speaking of the game, I really wished there was a special crossover event, I mean why doesn't want to see these two have a go at it?

@Mr.Turok
Wasn't there a fan film called AKUMA that was going to be a Predator film set in that time period? I think the director for Dark Ages was also going to help out. Nothing much has been said so far

it's basically someone who keeps being reincarnated and Arthur Dent is always involved in their death somehow.

I've enjoyed all the adaptations so far.
