Voodoo Magic

It's up!!! Thank you again Stephen Hopkins for talking with us!

There's lots of tasty morsels to be found in this one including some alien in nature!

I believe, that in a world where Voodoo gets to talk to Stephen Hopkins, one day TheSailingRabbit will talk to Mark Rolston

I think it's a testament to yourself that you managed to track down somebody as elusive as Hopkins. The thing with Predator 2, there just isn't a lot of info out there about it so it's great having something like this. It's a damn underrated sequel. People will moan that it doesn't have Arnie in it or it's set in a city but I like the contrast. It's by far my favourite Predator sequel.

Clears up the thing about the 4K. I thought it was going to be a new Blu-ray set with lots of new features. Never expected Fox were going re-release the film back to cinemas.

What's this Good Morning America interview? I don't think I've seen it.

Did he say anything about Anna? Did she have anymore scenes?

Voodoo Magic

Hicks did a follow-up question with Hopkins and other than remembering Anna's video, had no memory of filming a scene around Anna. Maybe they never did.

The Thomas Brothers did revise Anna's page the last month of filming in the shooting script and she didn't have anymore scenes other than this brief recorded footage (probably by the 2nd Unit).

Great interview. Hopkins really seems like a chill guy.

It Aliens 35th anniversary this year, right ? It would be really great to get him on the show this year, so he can tell us all about his role in Shawshank Redemption

Really this is just beyond amazing! There are so many nuggets of P2 gold in this interview, it's crazy. You guys and Hopkins have really provided a boon for predator fans with this.

I'm still laughing after he said the warehouse scene did copy aliens, just a great answer and humble. So much great info here.

Thank you Hicks and Voodoo, this is really next level stuff.


Voodoo Magic

Thanks for all the nice comments all. We really appreciate it.

Here's one of my personal favorite moments only catchable on video.... :laugh:
