Title: Prey (Skulls) Catch All Thread
Post by: Corporal Hicks on May 22, 2021, 07:54:07 AM
As has become tradition a catch all thread for the smaller things to do with Skulls that might not warrant their own thread or taking over another thread.

Another "hindsight is 20/20" news - Kyle Strauts, Dan Trachtenberg, and Amber Midthunder have all recently started to follow Dakota Beavers from the band WesternBoy on IG.

WesternBoy IG post shows them in Alberta Canada and the video from Dakota says they will be off the map for a couple of months but have some exciting news coming soon.



Neither of the band members have any IMDb profiles so maybe this has something to do with music for the movie.  Unless they have some type of background/extra role.

**Just noticed the WesternBoy IG account recently started to follow Amber Midthunder's mom's casting agency -- https://www.instagram.com/midthundercasting/

Kyle Strauts' quarantine period in Calgary is over per his IG stories

Seeing photos like this I wonder if we will see escape by river scenes like the one from The Revenant in Skulls

**Better yet what if Kee sets some type of trap that forces the Predator into the river.

No contest for me - Mythic creature for sure! Eric's idea that the Predator is on Earth to hunt something else. And make it a Yeti!

Opening scene - Predator stalks (only seen through Predator vision) and kills bear.

When the Predator is fully revealed we see him wearing a mantle made of bear fur and decorated with the bears skull and bones.

Yep, Pred's main vision should be that from P1/P2.  Don't fix what ain't broken.  Now the pred can cycle through other vision modes depending on the situation he is in like P2.

Here's a good question, does the Predator's technology advance? You could argue that the farther back we go we see the technology not as refined. Every film has made advancements in how the character carries or uses its arsenal like City Hunter has more gadgets but Fugitive's helmet is also a gun. So you could explain it as earlier versions of what we'd see later. The 5th film might have a shoulder canon like the AVP films. Kind of chunky, but since this is earlier in the timeline you wouldn't have a gun you could keep in your helmet or mount to an arm. So being a back to basics movie you could justify that because they haven't reached the point yet where they could do the things later films do.

I get what you're saying, but still they are already able to space travel to distant planets... So why wouldn't they be able to already have a weapon mounted on their wrist ?

It can be situational. Remember that City Hunter saw the footage of Jungle Hunter's hunt, studied it and prepared well for the hunt ahead. Jungle Hunter was very lightly equipped on his hunt and so CH must have figured out to be a bit more decked out on gear just in case for whatever he might encounter in LA. Didn't really save him, but it helped him last longer in the hunt. Even Wolf, Fugitive, and Upgrade had more decked out gear than their other counterparts due to it being a mission based scenario and not one of a real hunt.

Post by: Voodoo Magic on May 25, 2021, 03:11:34 AM
Yeah, I would think it's definitely situational with conditions determined by sport. I mean, there's human hunters today (unfortunately) that still choose to hunt bears with spears. It's all about the challenge.

No, but a few people on Instagram are also asking. Considering he's a cofounder and Alec is there, it's a bit odd.  But he have just been busy.

I think it's fair to raise or lower your expectations based on a past body of work, so there would be no need for you to apologize.  :) But yeah, I too am prepared for the worst, hoping for the best, and would love to be surprised and singing their praises a year from now. 🤞

As far as I can tell, everyone here at least has treating ADI's involvement as a foregone conclusion since March. Once it appeared that Onyx is working on Skulls too though, it's just all been hypothesizing on who's getting what job assignments.

Although I feel The Predator, as bad as it was, was more of an insult and middle finger to the fanbase then just straight up bad.

To be fair, there wasn't an AVP film after AVPR.....

All I know is that The Predator is super low and I don't think Skulls will reach there, on the optimistic side. Lord knows that there are ways to make it worse but hey, I just want a great film.

The Predator would've been a way better videogame. Had this been made in the early 2000's where every release had a videogame tie-in it probably would've been like X-men origins. Movie might be bad but you can at least appreciate a solid videogame. If only.

I think a video game could have been a safer choice.  Much in the same way that, if Concrete Jungle was a movie I probably would have had the same issues with it, but as a videogame it gets a pass.  Idk, but maybe just save the real crazy ideas for the video games.

Everyone would be paid for services already rendered.

They would not likely be entitled to pay them for the downtime should an injunction occur. Everyone's a contractor and so if the production shuts down, people usually don't get paid.

Productions shutting down is nothing new, unfortunately, and that's typically how it goes.

But we don't know the legal structures and contracts in place, so this is just based on a general case.

The big names on both sides of the camera often have pay or play contracts, which means they'll get their money regardless if Skulls is stopped with a preliminary injunction or not.

The lesser positions however will likely be paid for services rendered to the point they are let go.

I was thinking perhaps Kee could appear something like this towards the end of the movie, yeah, maybe.

Some Comanche Warriors apparently wore headdressing like this. One would imagine defeating the Predator would finally win her acceptance as a warrior within her tribe, and I can see her adorned with some sort of Yautja spoils marking her accomplishment.

As much as I'd love the Pred to survive there's no way it happens in this film with the first female protagonist.

Think she'll take the Pred down like Dutch did, not as physical, but using her skills and as mentioned before a poisoned spear or something.

She walks back into her settlement and throws the Preds head into the middle of the fire and without making eye contact with anyone, stands for a few seconds then proceeds to walk away. 👀

Jhane Myers, a Comanche and Blackfeet American Indian is known for her attention to detail and dedication to producing, Native language, Native cultural advising, acting and fine art.

Finally a social media post from the crew.  I've mentioned before that Jhane Myers was a producer/cultural advisor on the film.  Some background from her IMDb page:

Jhane Myers, a Comanche and Blackfeet American Indian is known for her attention to detail and dedication to producing, Native language, Native cultural advising, acting and fine art.

Mind you I'd be quite surprised if it ends with actually Kee decorated for their actions.

You'd be surprised if it ends with Kee finally accepted and decorated as a warrior? Hmm. How would you expect the ending to go then? The formula of the first three films? Ending with Kee exhausted and beat to sh*t?

As much as I'd love the Pred to survive there's no way it happens in this film with the first female protagonist.

Think she'll take the Pred down like Dutch did, not as physical, but using her skills and as mentioned before a poisoned spear or something.

She walks back into her settlement and throws the Preds head into the middle of the fire and without making eye contact with anyone, stands for a few seconds then proceeds to walk away. 👀

Haha. Excellent. I can totally see this happening. It would be like a big F-U to anyone who didn't believe in her. ;D

That and when I did research on Rene Haynes after she was listed as part of the crew and found out she is recognized in the entertainment industry as one of the foremost experts in Native American and First Nations casting and consults on many projects, both domestic and foreign.

From an "on paper" perspective, they are getting the right people for the crew of the film.


Random but IMDb changed the title of the movie from Skulls to Predator today.

All honesty? I genuinely think they brought them back because they have the two suits from the last film, one of which Kyle Strauts actually wore. Predators are expensive costumes and it saves a ton of money that they have two of them left unused. ADI also has the AVP molds which means they'd just have to choose which incarnation of the weapons they'd want. If they're on the clock then it makes complete sense they'd use the guys who have a Predator just sitting there rather than reinvent the wheel.

Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: Mr.Turok on Jun 12, 2021, 11:49:15 PM
Its a shame really. I never hated the designs of the Predators from previous films. Each are unique on their own that tells a story about themselves like Scar's bulkier and more armored appearance tells of a Young Blood that trained heavily for close combat against xenomorphs and wears plenty of armor to ward off edge and acidic damage. Wolf tells of an aged hunter that favors speed and years of combat experience to make up for lack of armor. Can't hit what you can't catch right? Even with Fugitive, the high tech armor that covers a whole lot more such as the entire chest area and even is less tribal in design than previous Predators tells me that this isn't an ordinary hunt, he is hunter-warrior on a mission will complete it or die trying. Down from the tech he uses such as even having a plasmacaster in his biomask which is the first to see in the series.

Its always, however, its always the mandibles that they always screw up. Its just that one aspect that they always fall flat on and thats so infuriating. Like fresh snow under the bright moonlight and then suddenly someone decides to piss on the picture perfect snow and just ruin the image. Its just that one gripe man, just that one gripe.

We're feeling rather solid that Steve Wang's Onyx Forge is involved with Skulls too. But from the Comanche & Predator apparel to the weaponry on both sides, to the Predator itself, we haven't determined officially where those responsibility dividing lines have been drawn.

Touché, you'd think they apply the approach how Stan Winston's crew molded the Predator's mandibles and minimal articulation seeing as that movie hadn't the biggest budget and were pressed to get the movie made in short time. It'd be ideal they considered handling it so its presentable, functioned and looked good in the final film, but your right, we can offer feed back they may not necessary put it into use.

Been a bit mixed about how Scar's looked, came across as goofy, it was revealed by ADI to make him looked younger and more heroic so that gives context to his look being different.

Would you say Wolf's face was digitally augmented, because when I looked at clips from the film its hidden in shadow, has a smooth animated motion different from the set photo.

Anderson wanted a comic-booky, "handsome" Predator, hence things like not using the monstrous looking eye contact lenses, no slime, etc.

(I personally don't think he ticked all the boxes but I'm very, very aware of people who do)..

QuoteWould you say Wolf's face was digitally augmented, because when I looked at clips from the film its hidden in shadow, has a smooth animated motion different from the set photo.
In those shots the mouth's fully extended in one and closed in the other, which accounts for most of the changes. I wouldn't be surprised if the Bros augmented his face digitally but I don't know.

What I strongly disliked is the too human eyes. I get trying to change the eye color for a more heroic tone but its still too open like a Disney character that you can tell that's an obvious person underneath there with eye contacts. Compare this with JH, which has a more alien look than Scar's human looking eyes.

(https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.vox-cdn.com%2Fthumbor%2FRxaHfZFAlw4Z2jWuDt482x_uct8%3D%2F125x0%3A1475x900%2F1200x800%2Ffilters%3Afocal(125x0%3A1475x900)%2Fcdn.vox-cdn.com%2Fuploads%2Fchorus_image%2Fimage%2F41381302%2Fpredator.0.0.jpg&f=1&nofb=1)

They say the eyes are the window into the soul, and I can see an alien menace behind JH while Scar is just an obvious dude with contact lenses.

Basically.

Even the dreaded skin folds are only there to accommodate comically expanded mandibles, which start in AvP and just keep going. If they didn't have to stretch that much (and on multiple takes), the excess material wouldn't need to be there.

That's plainly not true. Look at the bottom set in this case being below the chin instead of aligned with them because it's not going for that recognisable "X shape" it means it both looks more humanoid and less big square headed. In fact I'd say the entire head shape's more elegant and heroic than the film iteration.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread

Scar's mandibles are also shown below the chin when not looking up at him with his mandibles folded closed. Those shots aren't comparing like for like.

Not really the same shape and you can see that with when the mouth's open and the connecting skin being straight instead of curved. And the fact on the film iteration the mandibles sit parallel to each other. Whereas on the figure they sit at diagonals.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: SiL on Jun 14, 2021, 08:19:46 AM
The third and fourth show the mandibles below the chin. Skin elasticity I addressed.

I'd say the eyes are a more significant difference between the two, especially the brow. But we're comparing a static model to a dynamic mask.

As for positioning, Scar's mandibles are capable of the correct position and BTS shots show similar posing (especially static stunt masks).

His shape isn't really the problem, it's how he was animated.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: BlueMarsalis79 on Jun 14, 2021, 08:22:04 AM
Barely below though nowhere near what the figure actually depicts. And yes as I said the whole shape's more slender and elegant. More favourably proportioned basically.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: SiL on Jun 14, 2021, 08:24:02 AM
They appear that low when they're lowered. Again, you're comparing dynamic vs static.

The head is more slender overall, which is the biggest difference. Not the mandibles.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: BlueMarsalis79 on Jun 14, 2021, 08:36:08 AM
That's incorrect, look at the closed mouth Hot Toys figure, the teeth only come out of the gum around where the bottom of the chin starts.

Nowhere do I see that even coming close to being the case with Scar on film, or him being capable of it, when he dies being the closest he gets.

And now you're comparing the final look with what it was capable of, which is why I specified BTS.

I really don't feel this is worth this much energy. Scar's got plenty of things to pick on, nobody's questioning that.

Still not the case in any of them I can see anyway, at best even hanging, it's nowhere near what's depicted on the figure.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: SiL on Jun 14, 2021, 09:38:39 AM
Because, again, the figure is a static model and you're looking to try to match it from a more dynamic face seen from often radically different angles.

Also again, not really feeling this is worth the energy.

I will admit to being dead wrong about the fact the Hot Toys figure's indeed going for that "X shape" after all.

Quote
That's plainly not true. Look at the bottom set in this case being below the chin instead of aligned with them because it's going for that recognisable "X shape" it means it both looks more humanoid and less big square headed. In fact I'd say the entire head shape's more elegant and heroic than the film iteration.

I got this backwards: I'd actually say in retrospect the difference's more visible when you look at the cheekbones and Hot Toys' much closer alignment with their mandibles to them. In addition to just making the inner mandible proportionally smaller and the outer mandibles slightly larger.

Post by: SiL on Jun 14, 2021, 11:21:40 AM
I was right about the lower mandibles though :laugh:

Their upper mandibles are larger when you compare them like that and it seems to balance it out better though.

From what I understand, the Comanche were never in Canada, but rather the Southern portion of North America.

But as many of the movies filmed in cost effective Canada, it's locations are meant to mirror another region and doesn't necessarily mean the story is supposed to take place in Canada.

Filming of Skulls will likely be long since completed before the trial is completed, provided it goes to trial of course.

Post by: SuperiorIronman on Jun 22, 2021, 01:41:16 PM
They're probably going to replace the head given I can't imagine the latex has held up well after three years and whatever it went through on set last time. Though I'd like if they did reuse some design elements of them since I really like the textured dreadlocks and I liked how one of them had the head designed after Pumpkin head as a callback to Stan Winston.

The Emissary are meant to be sort of Predator scientists. They're not as intimidating since they're the guys more focused on building stuff. They'd actually been a bit slender and even more mellow looking earlier on but Fox made them bit bulk them up. They weren't meant to look anything like other Predators due to this.

For me, the gigantic lower mandibles, the oversized lower jaw, the huge and overly spaced out teeth on the lower jaw, the weird low slope the dreads seem to follow, the big space between the eyes and the upper 'lip'


In the end it's subjective really but those are the biggest things that stand out to me as differences to the OG predator face

FWIW, the second example of the emissary face looks dumb to me, but that's because it looks like a sadboi when I thought the predators were supposed to be the monsters.

For me, the proportion is way off. It's a no-neck bobble-head. Just look at the eyes of the actor in those slots compared to the size of the head. The thing is oversized like a space helmet.

The resolution is just fine to me. Plus for me, I found the bobble-head proportion trouble already with the Fugitive Predator on screen to make a confident personal assessment with this Emissary, plus other issues...

(https://i.ibb.co/j6S0hDv/IMG-20210613-141515.jpg)

Performance and puppeteer work is definitely part of the recipe, but when you have odd folds, rolls and skin pockets not on the maquette but on your final product, the problem can't be dismissed solely to improper resolution.

Yes sir, to a smaller degree, indeed:

Oh without a doubt. Especially with pausing, there has always been a slight roll or fold in both Jungle Hunter & City Hunter to find. Even in the shots we love to post...

But we're really talking apple seeds to watermelons here. And none of the Winston skin fold in opposite directions, or become loops, creating holes that can be filled with cannoli cream!  :D (I think I have my new gif idea!)

Hmm. Does "Title Character" perhaps confirm Kyle is playing the sole Predator, or at least the main one? Guess we'll find out.

Well, it's a creature suit, so the only thing that matters is the physical capabilities of the actor. Given the supposed size and weight of the creatures, a male actor would be a logical choice.

Not understanding the need to still be vague. "Working on something new." Is it perhaps the lawsuit preventing them from officially saying production for Skulls has started? Or, maybe, production has stopped and he literally is working on something new but with some of the same people. He's worked with Jeff Cutter many times along with Vought International (The Boys?)

He posted this on Twitter as well and someone seems to have posted a video of what looks like him going through a car chase scene with stunt coordinators. Maybe an old video for when he was doing Langdon? The Boys? Man, things have just been too quiet that it's making me nervous and paranoid. 🤣😭

Another deductive reasoning hint that Dane DiLiegro is part of the cast; both him and Kyle Strauts posted IG stories in a vehicle driving out of heavy rain.

I would agree, even with a prosthetic added curvature to match a humanoid female.

It very well might be studio mandated that no one can make an official announcement until 20th Century and possibly Hulu announces it, which honestly might not even involve the lawsuit.

But I do think some are getting easily confused by this post. Danny wrote:

Quote"I'm currently sitting in the same position on a similar chair next to the same dude (@jeff cutter) on a new thing. Pic unearthed by @tysonbreuer"

What Danny is saying is this old picture unearthed by Tyson featuring Director Dan Trachtenberg and Cinematographer Jeff Cutter sitting together on an old film, is mirroring how they are sitting now while working on Skulls, aka the "new thing". We've already seen Jeff Cutter tag #Skullsmovie and post Predator cookies. They wouldn't have time in one month to sit together and be starting a whole new different movie with car chases. So it's all good.  :)

A lot of the comic books and novels in the past have portrayed the females as looking identical to the males.  My own headcanon, and several others' on the forum, is that a Predator or two in the movies have been female because of that lack of dimorphism in previous portrayals.

I'd like to think that he's being more tight lipped because of the lawsuit, rather than him being coy for coy's sake.  The cat's out of the bag at this point, so I wouldn't understand the whole coyness angle if that was his game.

I noticed that Dane was recently followed by actor Stormee Kipp.  In Kipp's recent IG post he has a video from his TikTok page that shows both Amber Midthunder and Skye Pelletier-Okimaw (who I have deductively linked with film previously) in the video.

The predator is literally a dude in a suit. It's a humanoid design so it's already humanized. The predator has a 6-pack and pecs and two arms and two legs muscled almost exactly like humans do. It wears a loincloth to keep it's genitals covered. But somehow the idea that a vertebrate species would have two genders is somehow the thing that would humanize it?

Perhaps Yautja/ Predators reproduce asexually like the Drac race in "Enemy Mine" (1985).

I do think seeing Predator juveniles (children) being trained by adults in how to hunt wound be neat regardless if the Yuatja/ Preds are asexual or have wives.

You know young Preds would be cute. Perhaps are very own Babyoda (Grogu) moment! :)

Perhaps human females are the Predator's wives? Which would explain some of the more humanoid characteristics.

NGL that'd probably make for a weird but cool take on the Mandalorian. Say someone stumbles onto Stargazer or the OWLF having wrecked a Predator ship, one of the parents is dead and the infant is found. Can't kill or just leave the kid so they're evading the government and a very pissed off mom or dad as they try to figure out what to even do with it. You don't want it to grow up into a deranged alien slasher but it also shouldn't be dissected, it's just an animal no different than them.

The only slight concern I have is now managing both Bigfoot or Wendigo with the Predator on screen at once without taking away from each other. If both creatures are antagonistic of each other and the tribe, I can see it go more smoothly than have one be a protector or unintentional one of the tribe.

Also, having mythical creatures means more work for OWLF to look out for here ON Earth other than threats from across the stars  :laugh:

There could be just two predators for the two tall actors. I think it's the most likely scenario. Doesn't mean that the bigfoot theory is impossible though. That would be an interesting turn... A good turn I don't know yet.

I think I'd prefer the Wendigo/Sasquatch angle over a pair of Predators hunting the Comanche with basic weaponry, but as with anything, it would all depend on its execution.

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e4/c7/38/e4c738e6886b44ae56209251c154cb67.jpg)

In my head I could see the film work where the Sasquatch is dead within the first 20 minutes of the movie - a situation where the Comanche and the Sasquatch have been living in harmony for generations - not Harry and the Hendersons style mind you  :laugh: - but a dangerous mutual respect like with the bear, not invading each other's territory, and both bringing a balance to the lands.

But one day, thanks to a Predator, some Comanche hunters stumble upon a fresh slaughtering of a Sasquatch spineless and beheaded, and all but one Comanche escape to tell the tale of that discovery. A demon is among them! Then a hunting party for the demon must begin, to rid the lands of this unwanted evil.

A Predator film set during the Native American times would be cool. It could explain why warrior tribes emerged like Apache, Comanche, Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Sioux. You could even explain scalping came from the Predators.

Dane Diliegro. He's a tall actor/creature actor. He's currently followed by Kyle Strauts, Amber Midthunder, Alec Gillis, Dan Trachtenberg, Jeff Cutter and more from Skulls on Instagram. Based on his stories it looks like he's currently on set in Alberta. So we feel pretty good that Dane is working in Skulls.

Now before we knew this, back in March, Dane posted those pictures on Instagram of him in a Bigfoot suit next to a Predator. I found it and conspiracy theorized at the time that it was a hint that perhaps we would be getting a Sasquatch/Yeti/Bigfoot/Wendigo in Skulls. But there is no proof of that, and the Yeti suit was later described to us as some sort of rental - but who knows. Just fan dreaming of mine at this point. :)

Turok vs Predator would be one hell of a fight to see for sure though. Question is which Turok from what era we talking about here? We got Golden Key, Valiant, Accliam, Dark Horse, and Dynamic.

Latest IG story from Kyle




Quote from: ace3g on May 22, 2021, 09:17:23 PM
Another "hindsight is 20/20" news - Kyle Strauts, Dan Trachtenberg, and Amber Midthunder have all recently started to follow Dakota Beavers from the band WesternBoy on IG.

WesternBoy IG post shows them in Alberta Canada and the video from Dakota says they will be off the map for a couple of months but have some exciting news coming soon.



Neither of the band members have any IMDb profiles so maybe this has something to do with music for the movie.  Unless they have some type of background/extra role.

**Just noticed the WesternBoy IG account recently started to follow Amber Midthunder's mom's casting agency -- https://www.instagram.com/midthundercasting/

Maybe Dakota Beavers is part of the cast.

Dark Ages was better than The Predator and Predators. I would love to see a Pred film in Crusader times. Get Crusaders and Saracens to team up to take it down.

I doubt they will do that, Predator has always been the more Patriarchal and masculine saga, while the Alien series is more Matriarchal and feminine (as in heroines). Its a good balance, that there are two franchises that have male and female champions; that both sexes get to assert themselves.

While it has the potential to be like that, 'Cloverfield Lane' convinced me the director will be handling the lead's portrayal in a balanced manner.

Comanche were, historically, one of, if not possibly the only, tribe which didn't have female warriors. So, I'm willing to give this a break, as that's in line with historical accuracy. The character rebelling against that allows for her having a reason to have already learned the skills in tracking, hunting and killing which she will need, later in the story.

Also, I believe she's more like eighteen or so. So, more like a young woman than what comes to most peoples' minds when hearing teenager. Especially with people generally dying much earlier in life, in those days (particularly women birthing children).

What I am a little concerned about is if the story tries to paint this as the norm, because North American tribal people have a long and proud history of female warriors. I'd feel rather unsettled if the story basically implies that isn't the case, as it would do them a disservice.

Hopefully, if the lead character survives, perhaps it'll have an epilogue where she meets a legitimate female warrior from a different tribe and goes off with them, demonstrating that her social issues were purely localised. Or perhaps just has dialogue when talking to another character, referring to how other tribes have women in that position. Sort of a, "So, why can't we," moment.

The Predator, itself, will always either die or be somehow exiled. That's the whole point of it filling the role of the villain. You're not going to have a being which glorifies slaughter and mutilation of human beings getting rewarded for it by being successful. I love sharks, but I'd think any 'Jaws' film where the main shark survives at the end would be anti-climactic and mostly unnecessary, because what's the point? Why bother to invest time and emotions in the hero's journey if they aren't going to overcome their challenge?

Well I must admit everyone, I'm very excited for this film now. I'm not going to get bogged down on what we do or don't know. The fact they are trying something fresh and different, and in the style of the revenant apparently, has me completely hyped! 

It's been a long time coming and even if it doesn't work I respect them for trying to think out of the box for once and trying something new and unique. I hope they keep a dark serious tone in this film and stay away from cheesy throwback lines etc.


My instincts are usually always right when it comes to predator films. As soon as I sense a flop it has consistently become that. This is the first time I'm not concerned but genuinely intrigued and excited. Fingers crossed this is the one, that gives us predator fans the film we all deserve.

Similar to The Revenant?  I could get behind that  8)  That's definitely a vibe that would go well with the Predator franchise imo. 

However, I'm not a fan of them trying to build it as the Predator's first journey to earth, but the similarity to Revenant would be awesome.

@wysps

Yeah I understand that concern, but if the quality of the film is good on its own merit, I'm not going to get bogged down on one tiny gripe. Say 90% was on point, I can look past the 10%.

End of the day, it's crunch time now imo for the franchise. It's in desperate need of a fresh injection of ideas. And I think taking it into a grounded serious revenant style tone and direction could be the right call.

I absolutely love the revenant, so I suppose I'm hyped and biased because I actually envisioned this happening when I watched the revenant one time ages ago. It was the long drawn out scene at the beginning, when they are in the trees, and I was like damn this would work sweet with predator. Another idea I had was a predator film in the style sicario.

Either way it's the news I've been wanting. Just someone to grab hold of this thing and take it in a interesting direction. And I believe skulls could just do that.

I'm not fully worried about the rating issue. If it where to be PG-13 it'd be on Disney Plus rather than Hulu. The Revenant comparisons have me beyond excited. If the Predator made first contact prior to white settlers in America (Being the region it's set in, that means before Leif Eriksson), there's still over 1,000 years worth of other time periods they can land in for other films.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Jul 30, 2021, 11:37:49 AM
I think the problem with that one is that if we're still going Comanche (and staying accurate), their culture came about after the introduction of horses (iirc) which came around when the Spanish showed up which was around 1700s.

Yeah, I hear that. And "code names" which Trachtenberg refers to in his post are used to try to keep the production of a film in secrecy - even though the cat was out of the bag on this one prior to filming.

But if Skull(s) is indeed a code name, it's just strange for Producer John Davis to outright say the film is called "Skull(s)". It's like John Davis telling the press in 2007 that his new AvP film sequel is called "Colorado Nights".

"Skull" or "Skulls" has always been such a generic title I've always taken it as simply the code name. And it could just be that they haven't settled on a final name for it yet, hence why John Davis still referred to it as "Skull."

Plus there's no point in not advertising the Predator connection now that the cat's out of the bag. I could maybe have seen them try to keep it a secret if they'd managed to get it out there without anyone knowing it was a Predator film, but now there's not much point.

It'd be a let down if they went picking and choosing settings/elements of the culture and mishmashing things just to put together an entertaining film.  A tad disrespectful.  I don't expect to see any horses in the film, for the very reason you stated (unless they change the period).  Or thick, vegetated forests for that matter.  So, I'm definitely curious to see how a Predator hunt will be pulled off in that environment.  Kind of makes the prospect of the film more interesting given that it'll definitely be different than what we've seen thus far!

Native American producer and consultant Jhane Myers posted this on set (she tags fight choreographer for the film, JJ Park, in the photo)



The movie does have a Native American consultant, Jhane Myers who is Comanche and Blackfeet. But perhaps it's an unspecified Native American tribe or earlier 'Proto-Commanche.'

From Wikipedia:

"The Proto-Comanche movement to the Plains was part of the larger phenomenon known as the "Shoshonean Expansion" in which that language family spread across the Great Basin and across the mountains into Wyoming. The Kotsoteka ('Bison Eaters') were probably among the first. Other groups followed. Contact with the Shoshones of Wyoming was maintained until the 1830s when it was broken by the advancing Cheyennes and Arapahoes.

After the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, various Plains peoples acquired horses, but it was probably some time before they were very numerous. As late as 1725, Comanches were described as using large dogs rather than horses to carry their bison hide "campaign tents."

If they are supposed to be in Wyoming, Calgary has been used for that location before with Brokeback Mountain.

Yes, I know she's there. My guess would be proto-Comanche if they still wanted the recognisability of the Comanche tribe, but I'm hoping they just leave it vague/fictional so they don't need to worry about putting their foot in their mouths.

I think the problem with that one is that if we're still going Comanche (and staying accurate), their culture came about after the introduction of horses (iirc) which came around when the Spanish showed up which was around 1700s.

Ah ok, the presence of the Comanche tribe and horses where stuff I didn't know was in the film. But honestly I can't imagine there's anything definitive in the film that could really preclude Predators having been to earth before. I bet if it's a hit they'll go back on that.

I loved the first season of The Terror, and I have to admit that I would never have thought of such a creature in a Predator movie. I saw an essentially similar being in Firebase from Neill Blomkamp's studio. Yes, the short flick has some similarities to the first Predator movie, but to me the creature featured in the short is a tulpa. A bit supernatural, but dope nonetheless.

A purported plot leak for Predator 5/Skull(s).

It goes against the initial Skulls production synopsis of "in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands" But since we never know....

*SPOILERS* Read at your own risk:

Spoiler
I have a friend that was involved in the film. Here are a few small leaks that I know.

Skull is not the real title, it's actually Hunter. Which was the original title for Predator.

The film takes place during the Comanche wars, when a small native village is invaded by American infantry. The people are murdered and some are kept as slaves.

The film initially is from the perspective of the infantry similar to the original film, except our lead character is a female warrior who is captured.

Near the half way point all the infantry are murdered. And she begins her own battle against the predator.

It's almost as if Dutch died and the female character became the lead.

The film is meant to be showing the brutality from all perspectives.

That's all I know. I've heard it's actually incredible. Relatively low budget. And it mirrors a lot of the original.

Ive also heard they are considering backing out of it being a streaming film, because there is confidence in a theatrical release.

It was shot on remote snowy locations, only with available light
the budget soared pretty easily.

I think this would work better than what the plot was previously assumed to be. The whole 'drawn to conflict' angle and it fits the recurring theme of the movies starting out as one type of movie before blending into sci fi.


This all fits with that earlier rumor from reddit too, right? (I'm not sure if both bits of info came from the same reddit user or not)

I speak from experience when I say I don't trust anyone doing leaks on reddit. Its usually bullshit a huge percentage of the time and anyone there can claim they know someone working on the film. Maybe one or two people there out of the hundreds is telling the truth but I don't trust leaks coming there ever. I can recall folks saying stuff about Assassin's Creed leaks in the reddit side, always saying the next game is taking place in Egypt/Japan/China/Indonesia ect. Fan favorite time periods and places that will always draw attention because people want it to be true. (Of course some places like Egypt and Greece have eventually been done but its just a matter of time so saying it will happen in the next year is just by eventual probability) 

The only thing that makes sense out of all of this is the conflict between the Comanche and US Army, as Predators are naturally drawn to heat and violent battles/warfare. The issue is wouldn't having the costumes and other things needed to have the US Army increase the budget? All that gunpowder, repeating rifles, uniforms, and horses would be expensive right?

As much as I love imagining the encounter above, and the Predator's original intent for coming to Earth being to hunt something bigger than than the Comanche Natives, Dane is roughly the same build and same height as Kyle Strauts, so perhaps it's as simple as they're both sharing Predator costume duties. Or just perhaps, there are two Predators featured in Skull(s)....

So Raphael Adolini's flintlock in Predator 2 was a Spanish gun, dated 1715. The name Raphael was also found/used in Spain. (But Adolini I believe is primarily an Italian name.)

Now in the 1700s, the Comanche in the southern part of America were not fighting colonists from England, but from Spain, so the time periods definitely sync if writer Patrick Aison decided to go there.  :)

OK VM, I know you're a font of Predator knowledge, but where did you get the info that the gun was Spanish?
Raphael is not usually a Spanish name, it's Italian, just like Adolini. In Spain, as far as I know, the spelling is usually Rafael, as is evidenced by various Spanish footballers, and the tennis player Rafael Nadal.
Since guns of this type were found all over Europe, this implies to me that the flintlock is Italian, not Spanish.

With regards to the film, though, Italians aren't known for invading pre-colonial America, so it more than likely has nothing to do with Skulls.

This Catalonian Flintlock was the replica used in the film (made by Denix.) It's a Spanish pistol.

QuoteRaphael is not usually a Spanish name, it's Italian, just like Adolini. In Spain, as far as I know, the spelling is usually Rafael, as is evidenced by various Spanish footballers, and the tennis player Rafael Nadal.

Yes, I never said Raphael was a Spanish name. I said "Raphael was also found/used in Spain." With any name with origins in Hebrew B.C., names got around by time the 18th century (even if you don't factor in the time of Spanish Italy.)

I'm not saying Raphael with the "ph" was incredibly popular there. It's ranked #536 right now in Spain.

https://charlies-names.com/en/raphael/

But in the context of writer Patrick Aison somewhere making it work, he has some connections to do so. People even argue the Italian Christopher Columbus was originally charged to claim lands for Spain. So you have places to go with it. :)

I feel the same way lol well Dane Diliegro being attached to the project might be the only shimmer of hope for (Bear, Bigfoot, etc)to appear in the film in some form. Unless he is playing someone from the American infantry, but his height is better suited for a creature or a Pred.

As much as I love imagining the encounter above, and the Predator's original intent for coming to Earth being to hunt something bigger than than the Comanche Natives, Dane is roughly the same build and same height as Kyle Strauts, so perhaps it's as simple as they're both sharing Predator costume duties. Or just perhaps, there are two Predators featured in Skulls.

One can dream about the actual plot twist right?

where did you get the info that the gun was Spanish?

This Catalonian Flintlock was the replica used in the film (made by Denix.) It's a Spanish pistol.

QuoteRaphael is not usually a Spanish name, it's Italian, just like Adolini. In Spain, as far as I know, the spelling is usually Rafael, as is evidenced by various Spanish footballers, and the tennis player Rafael Nadal.

Yes, I never said Raphael was a Spanish name. I said "Raphael was also found/used in Spain." With any name with origins in Hebrew B.C., names got around by time the 18th century (even if you don't factor in the time of Spanish Italy.)

I'm not saying Raphael with the "ph" was incredibly popular there. It's ranked #536 right now in Spain.

But in the context of writer Patrick Aison somewhere making it work, he has some connections to do so. People even argue the Italian Christopher Columbus was originally charged to claim lands for Spain. :)

We can easily assume Raphael Adolini was of Italian origin working for Spanish or Pirate from some mixed crew. In my head canon he's form Sicily and great grandfather of one Vito Andolini  ;)

Raphael Adolini being an Italian sailor/pirate who picked up the flintlock whilst trading/plundering Spanish ports makes sense to me.

This was all just an exercise in relation to Nanison's hope to tie in Predator 2's flintlock to Skull(s). I think the Spanish lost their rule over much of Italy somewhere before the year 1715, so rather than involving the Comanche and their fights with colonists for Spain, Patrick Aison could have easily writen Italian pirates washing up on America's shores. (I believe a lot of Italian pirates at that time would have been in the service of Spain at one point anyway - to explain the guns.) Anywho... the flintlock AND the Elder Predator being worked in Skull(s) would be pretty wild!  :)

Wouldn't that be an interesting film trilogy centered around Greyback if Skulls would be his first Hunt on Earth? Then you have 1718 as his second Hunt and then the last Hunt would be during the Korean War. Although I think the events in the comic was short and fine enough to be combined as one film with the Korean War film. Like the Prelude similar to the one in AVP with the Whaling Station during the early 1900s but a much more longer version.

I just wonder how can you make the story where both Kee and the Predator survive at the end and make that resolution satisfying for all areas. You think Predators would accept mercy from their prey? Would the concept of mercy be considered dishonorable to them or understand that given a second chance is just another way of complementing them as a worthy opponent? You see this alot in other stories outside of this series that do this, like the main character shows mercy to their rival and soon enough the rival goes through character development and establish a friendship with the main character and becomes part of the main crew for the series.

There has to be a 3rd opponent or force that would make the Pred and Kee work together, and thus both go their own ways at the end of the film. Since this film is a prequel, and IF the P2 lore is still acknowledged by the writers and director, the Predator lives to hunt another day.

I'm almost positive if it is Greyback the ending will be a deliberate callback to Predator 2 with either Greyback's crew coming to get him or Greyback being on the receiving end like Harrigan was before they let him go. However this does make me think about the similarities and how this could be not only a stand alone prequel but a stealth second part of a trilogy. Since if Greyback goes down in a similar way to City Hunter, is CH even dead? Sean Keyes is still active in-universe and it'd be an obvious route to take his character in having this confrontation with his father's killer even decades later given his involvement with the OWLF and Stargazer.

Naturally you're audience wants the Predator killed, but if it's Greyback he can't die since he's in Predator 2. They might have a back door for a City Hunter follow up.

Alternatively and most likely I'm talking out of my ass.

Just my opinion, but I highly doubt they'd actually have Greyback as a character, or even reference him. I'd imagine it'll just be a completely different pred as per usual.

I don't see them working together, as I don't see any kind of 3rd opponent that has to force them to team up. The producers said this is a classic hunt story so its going to go down between both sides. Even if its the Bigfoot creature that is rumored about, I don't even see it as a strong enough opponent that I can see the Predator really struggle against. Simply the red herring that gets killed by the true threat Kee will have to face. I think that will be a really strong and interesting idea if Kee grants the Predator mercy, I do wonder how the producers can direct this if there is a possibility the Predator will also survive at the end of the film. I find it unlikely however and it will be one to the death, but who knows.

Wait, so does anyone know that will this take place in a summer or winter season? Seems more like a summer background, but with CGI and all that, it can change up a few things or something idk. Makes sense in the summer due to the heat and conflict angle but a winter season can make things work spectacularly well as a great change up from the usual.

No winter for me thanks. I prefer to go back to the Thomas Brothers conception of Predators drawn to warmth. Only in the hottest years this happens. Plenty of time periods, opponents and locales to choose from without having to replay AvP Antarctica again.

In a related note for me, it was refreshing to hear Peter Briggs annoyed with Paul f*ck-the-lore Anderson for sticking the Predators in the snow too, especially without any effort to upgrade the Predators' apparel to compensate for the sub-zero temperatures.

So damn f**kstrating.

Can't remember but wasn't (or shouldn't?) the temperature be different that deep below ground?
Might be comparable to not wearing a jacket when driving somewhere because you'd only have to walk a minute to the entrance?

Totally unrelated: this is my kind of idea for a Predator movie, I don't know where else to post it.

set in Africa during heavy military conflict that coincides with a heat wave.

Africa provides excellent backgrounds and sceneries: big cities, small towns, slums, tribal villages, jungles, lakes,...
You can have a mainly black cast with one or few token white guys instead of the other way around. And it wouldn't be taking "the woke route". It's Africa, it's reality. And it would make sense for a local to be familiar with his environment and it's possibilities.

There's Predator comic book stories they could incorporate:
-Rite Of Passage
-The Pride at Nghasa
-Hunters II.

Combine those and you could have a sweet movie.

Except Lex and crew wore a jacket through their entire duration inside the pyramid. So it certainly can't be deemed as hot, or even warm, or they would have stripped their jackets off - especially with all that running and surviving.

Coming to LA during a ridiculous global warming heatwave and Keyes saying Predators are "drawn by heat and conflict" to Anna saying "only in the hottest years this happens and this year, it grows hot" (and this is the hottest times in the already hot jungles of South/Cental America)... it's establishing that Predators desire and / or need and / or optimally function in hot temperatures. It makes me suspect Predators may be cold blooded like lizards.

So this piece of lore had been established in two movies already. How one could have respected it is, at least show the audience Predators compensating for the cold - via technology, medicine or apparel. The way I take him, Paul Anderson would have never concerned himself with introducing a breather mask in Predator 2, because it seems he's either incapable or uninterested to think these things through to that degree. And his disregard/disdain for the smart-disc and established Predator ship aesthetics makes me think the latter.

They didn't have to speed up the life cycle of the Alien either. The teams certainly could have been stuck down there in the pyramid for days, and it certainly would have allowed some interesting quieter character moments as well. But you know, whatever.

And to his credit, he does explain that the pyramid was built when Antarctica wasn't frozen (which is before humans but whatever), so it's not like he's suggesting the Predators intentionally built it on the ice.

He also implies that the other pyramids around earth - which were in warmer climates, such as the Americas - have gradually all been destroyed until this is the last one left. So they also don't really have a choice.

There's a lot wrong with AvP but he at least made the effort to explain the decision in-universe.

I remember reading Antarctica was all initially driven from Anderson being a big fan of The Thing, and to me, the lack of logic shows that, but alas, I digress...

It still doesn't work. It wasn't like Predators should have been surprised by Earth's climate - an Ooh! We should have dressed warmer realization. Chronological Predator visits kept them abreast and they certainly can key on yearly ideal climate situations from afar to signal when & where are the best times & places to hunt on Earth.

Again, it all could have been explained away with some extra effort, show the audience Predators compensating for the cold in some way - via technology, medicine or apparel. A syringe shot resulting in their veins illuminating with a momentarily red glow, even. Something simple that doesn't leave Predator fans scratching their head, which obviously, many did.

But Anderson to me doesn't seem to follow the Stan Winston way of thinking: Function over Form. He's all form over function. If it looks cool, it rules.

I just went with the novel's explanation that their netting provided warmth. They have more coverage from their netting than the first two Predators (both arms are covered), not to mention more coverage from their armour overall.

I never took Predators liking the heat for Predators necessarily needing the heat, and I know I'm not alone in that.

But sure, even just showing the netting periodically glowing as it heats up would've been a nice touch.

Hmm. The netting since the first Thomas Hunter script we have in public consumption has always camouflage related. It's been at least 15 years since I read the novelization, I'll have to revisit that.

(https://i.ibb.co/61mc2sL/IMG-20210811-090234.jpg)

But either way, the netting's purpose has never been explained to the audiences, so it's irrelevant to the point that audiences only know Predators come to environments that are at its hottest temperatures.  One would logically ask - why care if the netting was already keeping them hot? So the logic doesn't quite fit.

Perhaps they like it warm because it allows them to wear the loincloth speedos?  ;D

But again, why bother if the netting was already keeping them hot. They can wear their speedos all day long in the cold. So I don't think those theories ultimately mesh. :)

Ah, I never read that. Glad it's not my often shoddy memory to blame.

And I agree with SiL that showing the netting periodically glowing / heating up would've gone a long way.

But in context of the entire movie, clearly Anderson was willing to bypass established lore (even Earth history itself) when it conflicted with the movie he was trying to make, leaving fans and other creators searching for explanations for things that he didn't care to include in his movie. And after listening to Peter Briggs, I know he wouldn't have done that in his script, which just saddens me even more how everything played out. :-[

He did say in the making of section of the AVP DVD, that he chose Antarctica due to being the closest thing we can have of space; being cold, hostile, and isolated and I understand that thought, since Fox wouldn't allow a future space setting due to their dumb reasons.

There is also the fact that like us humans, Predators do have the ability to adapt or change the environment to suit their needs. I doubt they would skip the chance to hunt dangerous prey in the cold due to the cold. I always thought the added armor and netting from AVP reflects them wearing specialized gear for the climate.

Isn't this also touched upon with the new lore based on this very said clan from AVP, The Isolated Clan: the one clan that purposely live on a mountainous world in the most hottest and coldest areas of the planet. It adds more diverse lore the Predator society, that there are just some exceptions that want to live more dangerously than others.

Given the temple was hot enough to be noticed and thaw the Queen as well as the Predators supposed to be hunting in that and not on the surface you can argue they'd be miserable on the surface but it's not an issue in the actual hunting ground. They f**k shit up on the way in and on the way out but they're supposed to do the ritual in the temple where it's warm enough, not on the surface where they'd be uncomfortable.

Also as a side note, while they could be attracted to heat, what if that summer is just really hot but nothing's happening? You end up with Ahab killing a platypus. So just going where the conflict is weather be damned makes way more sense to me.

Yeah, geared up to fight Aliens. Again, as far as the Thomas Brothers goes, the netting was for camouflage  - hence drawn by heat and conflict. If the netting is designed for warmth, Predators only need to be drawn to conflict, not heat - who cares about the climate.

My belief is while the fans come up with explanations, Anderson just discarded established lore he didn't like. Esthetics of their steamy ancient ship in Predator 2 and video games? Nah, let's change it to cold hard human-like steel. Smart-Discs? Nah, those are lame frisbees. I'll replace them with Shurikens (which admittedly are also cool). Predators only come when it's hottest? Nah, Antarctica pyramid will be so cool on screen. Alien life cycle takes how many hours? Nah, let's make it fast!

That's the one. Even then I'm relying on my memory.

Considering the netting doesn't cover the whole body in the original films I think it's fair to say its exact function was left up in the air on-screen - and Predators discarded it completely for the berserker Predators and yet they cloak fine.

Of course, it can be both a thermal regulator and part of the cloak, if we consider what it's cloaking may be the Predator's body temperature, not visible light (after all, don't they need to cover the City Hunter in radioactive dust to see him in the meat locker? Why bother if they could just use IR?)

And Anderson didn't really ignore drawn to heat and conflict, he just presented a different type of hunt - these Predators aren't being attracted to human conflict to find worthy prey in the struggle like the originals. This isn't a hunt of opportunity. They're here to fight Aliens, and they're buried under the ice. The temperature really isn't a calling card here.

I'm sure they would've preferred somewhere warm, but their last pyramid froze over and they have to deal with it.

Wait, wasn't there a flashback that showed the pyramid before the ice over? And wasn't the only reason they went there was because the humans set off some beacon and they were there to just essentially clean up? Also do a little hunting while at it. I'm not sure he completely disregarded lore. Also, not the first time Predators hunted in cold weather. Are we forgetting the Cold War comic? I think they're drawn more to conflict than just heat. Heat is a bonus.

That was a different pyramid. The pyramid turned itself on and the Predators were there to hunt Aliens for their rite of passage - cleaning up is AvPR.

They were stranded in Cold War, not there intentionally.

I mean you just answered your own question, they are geared up to fight Aliens. This isn't a regular Hunt, as SIL even brought up here:

I'm sure they would've preferred somewhere warm, but their last pyramid froze over and they have to deal with it.

They are Young Bloods who are not yet seen as true hunters until this trial is complete so the rules here greatly differ from the usual Hunt that Blooded hunters go through. I'm positively sure Predators prefer hunting in the heat but here this is the trial for the Young Bloods to be seen as men in the eyes of their clan so what better way to prove that is to hunt one of the most dangerous and adaptive prey that Predators love to hunt, in the most hostile, coldest, and remote places on Earth that other Predators would not like to endure? That's kind of like extra bragging rights right there that no Young Blood can resist.

I always thought the diverse in ship aesthetics are nice variation that do the extra nice work that reflects the Clans themselves. The Lost Tribe's ship reflects the usual Predator aesthetics with the steamy, hot, and orange reptilians theme while the Isolated Tribe's cold, dark silver, and blues reflect their hardened preference to extreme cold and heat. I do agree, however I did not like how future media used the AVP ships as the go to design for future ships. The Predator film is the greatest sin for this very reason, as the ship design and interior looked very plain and dull.

Can't be mad at Shurikens as in the end, lot of media used both Smart Disk and Shuriken designs so least people love em both.

Antarctica pyramid? Hell I wanted the film to be set in the future space in some colony somewhere but again, Fox had to be a bunch of cheap ass suits that wanted to go for that PG13 rating for the safe easy making money and not spending so much on the future setting that would have been costly in their eyes. Didn't like how humans worshiped Predators as gods angle at all either. More Ancient Alien nonsense I hated so much as it just downplays how ancient humanity can just surprise us with their amazing abilities to do things like build pyramids. Just bad decision overall.

There is no excuse for that Alien life cycle, that was just bad all the way.

But the camouflage reasoning is barely more valid than the heating thing. If anything, the novelisation is more accessible than the script (is intended to be.) Neither were on-screen explainations.

It's not that they can't freeze their nuts off for polar bears and tigers -- they just don't want to.

Except Lex and crew wore a jacket through their entire duration inside the pyramid. So it certainly can't be deemed as hot, or even warm, or they would have stripped their jackets off - especially with all that running and surviving.

They actually did remove a layer:

Also given there was a room in the pyramid with a good bit of water dripping, the energy of the structure being activated (described by the heat bloom) was likely melting some of the ice. Goes to reason it would be a bit warmer.

I've never had a problem with it myself, we saw them hunting in cold environments in the comics too, regardless if they were stranded or not, they seemed to handle it alright.

Unless, there's some level of discomfort in the colder temperature that prevents them from comfortably doing so, at the very least.

But this can just as easily justify a reading of preferring a hot environment rather than needing it. It shows us what temperatures they're most comfortable in.

As I said before, they're hunts of opportunity. They wait for it to be hot with lots of conflict and then go in and find the best of the best to hunt down because those are the best conditions to find good sport.

But in AvP they're on a specific mission, not opportunistically looking for game.

To be honest,  the Bovotoya hunt wasn't your regular trip. As SiL or Hicks rightly pointed out, it's probably the last such Pyramid on earth and this is probably last such hunt. It was used because all other were destroyed by the time of 2004. Also most of the hunt was conducted underground where conditions weren't as extreme as oustside. Also the heat spike came from inside of the Pyramid was potent enough to be registered be the satellite all through the ice cape. It must have been quite big. The Queen chamber, outside of freezing sarcophagus filled with some unknown cooling agent, was very hot, with visible streams of molten lava. I'd say Pyramid is quite warm inside and good place for hunt.

Because they don't want to hunt in 90 degree temperature. That's what I'm saying. It's not just ideal situation to find the game, it's ideal situations for them for hunting.

I think there's ample proof throughout the movies that Predators, like humans, like stacking the deck in their favour as much as possible when they go on a hunt. Hunting in temperatures they're most comfortable in is part of that. Sure, they could go some other time when it's colder but just as bloody, but they'd be uncomfortable the whole time and their hands would get numb and it's just such a miserable affair.

Nah. We can't prove either wrong in this fictional universe, but I do believe your logic is faulty.

So if these Predators are a fan of hunting, they would certainly go in the tiny less hotter years (where we would still be sweating like hell in) to hunt. I don't think a little bit warmer stacks the deck for them, unless it really effects them physiologically... hence my point.

Now apply that to Antarctica.

We're talking preferences - what you like, or what I like, really doesn't have anything to do with what a fictional organism might like.

It's also not a great comparison. Actual hunters won't hunt in certain seasons or certain weather conditions because they aren't favourable. That's closer to the mark than safely watching a game.

Hell, those sports players sometimes won't play if the conditions are wrong. It's very different comparing an activity you're active in, vs passively watching from the sidelines.


EDIT

For what it's worth, beef is stored in lockers around 1 degree Celsius, or 34f. That's much, much cooler than the stated 105f preference.

Yet City Hunter doesn't seem particularly bothered by it.

So either P2 shows they already have means of compensating, such as if the netting is heated, or cooler temperatures don't incapacitate them.

Humans also don't do great for too long at such low temperatures, but obviously you can walk into a freezer and not immediately keel over. Just like Harrigan does.

No, hunting seasons are pretty much based on population control. There's plenty of hunters right here in Pennsylvania that would go all year long if they could!

Maybe not conveyed as well, but my comparison was more in regard to the vast degree difference we'll sit through not generating additional activity body heat to keep us warm, compared to the smaller degree difference they will / will not hunt in. Jungles are still damn hot!

But yes, go ahead and compare that to the American football players that are playing. They'll play in sweltering heat to below freezing temperatures, while it's snowing. (Lightning storm though - they're off the field. Too dangerous. )

So the original point still stands, if humid 100°F / 37 Celcius is no longer ideal to go have some fun hunting in a still sweltering (to us) jungle... that it affects Predators too much physiologically to run around and throw smart discs and shoot plasma casters, then the -35 °F/C average of Antarctica should be an outright death dealer for Scar, the Elder, any Predator that stands in it and doesn't compensate.

All I personally wanted to see was some extra effort put forth to show the audience Predators compensating for the cold in some way - via technology, medicine or apparel. A syringe shot resulting in their veins illuminating with a momentarily red glow. A breather mask of some sort (which would looked so cool). Then I would have been good-to-go based on the previous films internal logic. But staying consistent to lore for both creatures did not seem to be a priority to Anderson. What can ya do. I know it used to bother others in this community, maybe it was just the old timers, and me an Briggs are the only ones left complaining. Oh well

One more from you if ya want, then let's get back to Skulls!   :)

Sorry. I missed your edit when I replied. I wanted to give you the last word so we can get back on topic, so in the briefest way possible, meat lockers are not freezers and never below freezing. It can poorly affect hanging meat. That's where the City Hunter grabs his food. My assumption is he doesn't hang around in there, he kicks back on the roof or in his hot steamy ship. He wasn't prepared to have a battle in there. There was no opportunity for preparedness. One can even suggest the rebreather mask was used to help him overcome the cold - the Jungle Hunter didn't use it for his wounds or air quality after fighting Dutch while breathing Earth's oxygen.

Antarctica is far below freezing however, in subzero temperatures. That's a whole new level of ballgame. All the Predators knew the climate they were entering before hand, and I would have liked to see some visual preparedness. Small touches like the rebreather mask no one seems to spend time on these days. I miss the medkits. Those little details. 10 seconds spent showing your glowing netting idea in AvP I would have loved - making this discussion non-existent. :)

Thanks, but I actually mentioned the temperatures and wasn't implying the place was freezing. What I was really asking about is you repeatedly seemed to imply that even 90 degrees would put them out of commission vs 105, yet he's running around at 34 degrees without a care in the world.

Bringing it all back to Skulls - seeing a Predator hunt in a cold, miserable, foggy forest would be beautiful, and so long as they have a reason for it to be there in those conditions I'm all for it.

Putting them out a commission is a bit severe, but as I started this conversation a few pages back I suspected Predators may be cold blooded like lizards, which puts them at a disadvantage compared to warm-blooded animals because their metabolism slows, hence cold-blooded animals aren't active in the winter. It wouldn't happen with an instantaneous snap of a finger (or retrieving food from a meat warehouse), but rather a snowball effect. It fits the Thomas Brothers logic that is presented to us - of only in the hottest climates they hunt. And that's why I wanted to see an effort to upgrade the Predators' apparel and tech to compensate for the sub-zero temperatures in AvP, because they knew the climate they were entering. Common lizards can be found on every continent except Antartica ya know. :)

Here comes your AvP Galaxy full-time MD. Predators can't be cold blooded. They are to big for that. Even earth based lizards of certains size (like crocodiles) have constant body temperature. TBH AvP Preds do look quite different to all other Preds we've seen before. I bet this extra armor around chest has special warming unit. There problem solved!

Oh you. Yes, of course you are right. I'm 100% sure I read the article, that all kinds of cold-bloodness determine size of the animal and greatly decrease area of of their population.  Maybe it was in context with dinosaurs.

They could. Like a dude in camouflage perched in a tree picking off deer... or the Jungle Hunter picking off Dutch's team.

But some human hunters to this day hunt Bear with spears, which apparently ups the challenge, danger and intensity level, and subsequently the rewarding feeling of "accomplishment". So I can see Predators hunting bear in both ways.

Yeah I think it's impossible at this point that they don't make the big animal fight happen.

Let's hope!  If not the Sasquatch... the bear!

I think from a Predator's point of view a bear is a cool creature, but not a worthy opponent to hunt.
As there isn't much hunting to do me think. A bear is more about brute force than strategic and skilled fighting.

But what if it's a another kind of bear. Like a big hairy gay guy. A god damned homosexual tyrannosaurus!

Maybe a Predator wristblade gauntlet or a plasmacaster (if there happens to be a caster) but I rather keep the design a secret until the film or at least the trailer. We get too spoiled these days that having anticipation is a great reward in itself as you see the full reveal of the Predator in said trailer or film.

For Skulls, I'm still holding out hope the film is not promoted as a Predator film, but rather a mysterious period piece monster film. But alas, if they do wear "Predator" on their promotional sleeve, please don't show us the creature, not even in the trailer(s).

If it is full disclosure that they're indeed going for, I would definitely love something in the vein of this for the teaser, but alas, trailer narration has gone the way of the dinosaurs as of late. :-\

Any theatergoer here in the U.S. is inundated with trailers before every film. And before you say close your eyes and wear ear plugs for 20 minutes...

Today's decorum is the content within film trailers is public knowledge. There's no spoiling trailers. So for anyone trying to avoid a spoiler image... say what the Predator will look like... will be flooded with that image via screencaps headlining new articles, videos, and in your social media streams between the the time of the trailer and the film's release, regardless if you click on the content or not.

I don't go to the theatre. If so I'd mess about on my phone and/or listen to music during the trailers.

What do you mean by "there's no spoiling trailers"? Don't trailers spoil things?

IF and that's IF you really want to, you can avoid a lot. Unless you're an active member of the AvP scene, like a moderator on fansite or something  ;)
In my social circle I'm the only "nerd" when it comes to this stuff. So no one I know will be posting or telling me about it.
Pre having seen Covenant, a local website posted a picture that was a small spoiler. So I quit visiting that site. And many others for a period of time.
Since I don't go theatres, I had to wait until an official online version was released. That's a longer wait while there's even more info online.
Wasn't easy but I managed. Didn't see any footage before watching and didn't know too much.

Or you'll get articles where they analyze some event or scene of a movie. A movie that's been out in the theatres for less than a week.

You know, Sasquatch would've been a comeback to shere crazyness of 80'/90' where anything could happen on screen.  They were close to the narrative that gave us Predator on screen in first place. With Bear, you have  nod to Revenant but with Predator instead of DiCaprio. Don't  get me wrong, it can be cool and I hope it will be, but instead of something really hot, we've  got only lukewarm.

I think that's unfair. It's a theatrical debut for the Predator to actually go up against a bear! And that's a fight against an expectation that we all concocted. If the choreography is great, I think it can just as good being against a creature grounded in reality. Don't get me wrong, I would have totally loved Big Foot, but it's unfair to call a bear a lukewarm alternative - especially when we haven't seen it.

I'm 100% rooting for a pred vs bear scene, but it's still possible the animal will be featured in a hunt/fight sequence with comanches only, in order to demonstrate how skilled and badass they are.

I do hope the bear will be shown first as attacking Kee and her brother, and then being killed by the predator, appearing for the first time to their eyes.

I'm actually very, very surprised Dan Trachtenberg showed us this practical fx bear. It seems a very odd pre-release share, considering the movie isn't about a bear nor titled "The Bear". That kind of behind-the-scenes share is usually reserved for afterwards, once we know there is a bear featured in the film.

Maybe Dan is a regular reader of Alien vs. Predator Galaxy and believes the C̶a̶t̶ Bear is already out of the bag. I actually wouldn't be shocked by that.

It would be cool to see the bear with the glowing blood on it's maw and claws. If the Predator is mauled and wounded severely by the animal it would be a good call, change the dynamic a little. That bear suit does not look promising, bear's paw shape is way different and the claws should look intimidating. Maybe stand in for CG?

I don't want to be unfair. I'm far from it. I want to be understood the right way.  In late 80's and early 90's nearly everything could go on screen. Hollywood was much braver back then and it's not surprising many of its best products were created back then. Crazy stuff like Predator vs Sasquatch is going back to the roots of 80/90's prime with this bravery  I think Hollywood has lost through the years. The bear sequence will, rightly so,  be compared to Oscar winning Revenant. Is such sequence can be good? Yeah, of course it can.  Is such sequence can become a legend? I don't think so, as Revenant done that not long time ago  and with DiCaprio. The Sasquatch sequence could have been legendary and something people would talk about for long time. Bear will be good, but mostly for the fans of Predator.

It would be interesting because there is a lot of documented encounters between Native Americans and the Sasquatch that occurred centuries ago, so there's a lot of history to play with. And it would be wild that this was the creature that Predators originally intended to hunt on Earth... but the Comanche prove that ultimately humans are the bigger game.

I think the Windigo would have been a great idea with the setting. It's a Cree legend but could have been interesting. The budget would have to be large though which I don't think "Skulls" has. All for the Predator hunting all kinds of Big Game.

Is there some kind of hunting code mentioned in the comics?
Because I'm curious. Let's say it's pred vs bear. Is he allowed to use all his weapons? Or is he limited to only his claw because a bear has claws and that would make it kinda fair.

Plenty? I can only think of a few besides a bear.
A large crocodile/alligator if it's able to sneak up on him and drag him under water. 
A gorilla maybe? If the pred fights without any of his weapons. And both only use sticks and stones.

Tigers hunt solo and like most (big) cats basically have one attack move that's the sneak run jump.
If the pred's allowed to use his claw, I don't see it as that big of a challenge.

Lions hunt in groups, that would be different.
And one pred vs a group doesn't seem fair. But maybe there's a crazy pred out there looking for challenge.

Personally give me a big croc or gator encounter.
Possibly with predator talking sounds translated as "Crickey. Got a real big one over here."

While doing an image search, I got results mentioning native Americans being involved in alligator wrestling. Turns out it originated from their old hunting techniques, because they used to hunt and eat them.

Well, for local NA wildlife that can do a Predator some damage would be bears, wolves, bobcats, and cougars. Not much, but it would have some interesting fights. Its kind of why the idea of a Predator hunting right at the end of the Ice Age sounds like a great stand alone story to me, seeing how there was so much more deadlier wildlife back then like terror birds, short faced bears, dire wolves, sabertooth cats, american lion, and so much more, with the addition of a true first Predator encounter with ancient man. It was simply such a more brutal place to be around.

For reference, this is a short faced bear which can be around 12-15ft tall standing up and hit the pounds by +1,000

I would love to see a film capture something like this. A Predator on the hunt for prehistoric creatures. A story of hunt and survival. 80-90 minutes long. A movie with no dialogue. Think Josh* Brolin out in the desert in "No Country for Old Men".

Damn would that be an expensive movie though.  :laugh:  One can dream I guess. Better to animate it perhaps, or develop it as a video game.

Hmm. I don't know. Against a human, sure. But often bullets cannot even guarantee to pierce a Predator's hide, what can Wolf teeth really do? And Predators are so much heavier and solid than humans. I can imagine a Predator can lumber around with three wolves hanging onto him by their teeth gnawing away hopelessly. Wolves just seem more of a nuisance to a Predator than a threat.

Well, for local NA wildlife that can do a Predator some damage would be bears, wolves, bobcats, and cougars. Not much, but it would have some interesting fights.

Not much ? A big bear could totally wreck a pred IMO.

I'm glad someone has said this. Hand-to-hand, a Grizzly would annihilate a Predator - I say this fully aware one creature is fictional and the other exists here in the present day.

Was fortunate enough to see a couple of Grizzlies in Whistler and they are the real deal - terrifying.

Has the potential to be a great match-up on screen.

Hmm. I don't know. Against a human, sure. But often bullets cannot even guarantee to pierce a Predator's hide, what can Wolf teeth really do? And Predators are so much heavier and solid than humans. I can imagine a Predator can lumber around with three wolves hanging onto him by their teeth gnawing away hopelessly. Wolves just seem more of a nuisance to a Predator than a threat.

As I mentioned previously, a wolf pack would most likely harass a Predator, but a wounded one, that has been sliced open by a bear, would probably be different. 

Predators are massive, but I can imagine a pack of 12 or so doing some damage to one.  Also, check the bite force of a Timberwolf.  If one can bite through moose bones in a couple of chomps, I'm sure a pack can inflict some damage to a injured Predator.

Honestly think a predator with his claw and skills has a better chance of winning than a bear which is more brute force.

Its kind of why the idea of a Predator hunting right at the end of the Ice Age sounds like a great stand alone story to me, seeing how there was so much more deadlier wildlife back then like terror birds, short faced bears, dire wolves, sabertooth cats, american lion, and so much more, with the addition of a true first Predator encounter with ancient man. It was simply such a more brutal place to be around.

For reference, this is a short faced bear which can be around 12-15ft tall standing up and hit the pounds by +1,000

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d2/fc/73/d2fc73041d388cf95bdb95cb55c13bc3.jpg)

This can definitely give the Predator a good hunt

That's right. Animals were a lot bigger then.
And there were all kinds of strange hybrids which would make nice replacements for mythical animals.

I would love to see a film capture something like this. A Predator on the hunt for prehistoric creatures. A story of hunt and survival. 80-90 minutes long. A movie with no dialogue. Think Josh* Brolin out in the desert in "No Country for Old Men".

Damn would that be an expensive movie though.  :laugh:  One can dream I guess. Better to animate it perhaps, or develop it as a video game.

* name correction edit

You could add cavemen into the mix, so there be more and different viewpoints through the movie.
They find the ravaged (headless) remains of a large animal that has no natural enemies, along with some strange prints and green stuff. They decide to track it.

Errr... cavemen make me nervous. Not in general sense, they don't haunt me in my dreams or anything lol.... but it seems to be very hard to depict primitive cavemen on screen without a section of your audience viewing them as a source of comedy, no matter how hard you try to keep the tone serious. So personally, I'd pick a route without them. :)

For me I believe the modifier here is how scary you make it. The less friendlier and goofy you design your Sasquatch... the less you depict it like Harry from "Harry and the Hendersons"... the less risk. 

The more frightening you depict your Sasquatch monster, the more scary it becomes... the more threatening foe... and there's no risk of comedy at all (unless the suit looks bad of course)

I personally don't think cavemen behaved like half apes, homo sapiens have always been well homo sapiens, intellectually capable, they weren't dumber than people are now. Put a modern human on a deserted island with no modern tools and no knowledge of things he read in books and he is no different than a human being of 150 000 years ago, surviving on his wits, trial and error but by logical thinking.
You can easily resurrect a human of 200 000 years old and teach him how to drive a car.

In this hypothetical scenario it's about a Predator hunting large now extinct animals.
The humans are only there to observe and serve the story.

Let's say some find a dead mammoth* missing his head and spine. Along with a few strange prints and some green stuff.
The early humans would be surprised because it takes a group of them working together. They're the only people around so who or what could've done this?
So they go out to try to track this mysterious being.

I don't think you do. Apologies if I'm not clear enough.
The hunters aren't going to hunt a predator. They're gonna look for whatever killed that other animal, out of human curiousity. 
But the main storyline would be about a predator hunting animals.

The humans are there to serve the story. As narrators and camera viewpoints.
Like maybe one of the hunters says early on "It's hotter than usual for this time of the year". And later on some tribe elder says "When I was young my elders told tales about the god of hunters coming down to Earth..."

Otherwise it'd be a movie with just the predator hunting animals, without any dialogue or humans present.

Dutch beat Anytime by dropping a log on its head. I am 100% sure a situation could occur where gravity + heavy thing = neolithic humans beating a Predator.

It was kind of the point that only Dutch's resourcefulness and knowledge of more primitive skills (with a spicy dash of luck) saved him.

"But Predator tech!"

They can fly across space. They shoot plasma. They turn invisible. They don't get killed because they lack the tech necessary to defeat us, they get killed because they go out of their way to make it sporting. Wind us back a few thousand years and see them leaving the plasma casters and shurikens at home.

I could dig it.

Now I keep thinking of the idea.

Introducing the Gigantopithecus, an extinct genus of ape from the Early to Middle Pleistocene (when homo sapines was already around).
Like a gorilla it spent most of his time on four legs, but for comparison the image below shows the size of one standing on his back legs.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/85/Gigantopithecus_v_human_v1.svg)

If I was a predator, I'd see a challenge.
If I was an early human, I'd be careful.

Same. I imagine campfire tales, being told over and over again, over the ages. At some point the creature and subject of the story might be extinct, but the stories live on. It's why mythical tales sometimes hold some kind of truth to them.
I remember this piece about native Australians telling about giant crocodiles that used to live around there.
Later on bones were found. Bones of what appeared to be giant crocodiles. Confirming the native Australian stories, or at least part of it.

The series A Greek Odyssey with Bettany Hughes sometimes follow some ancient tale, which again holds some truths.

There's early drawings of a rhino where it appears to have some kind of special armour for skin.
Making it seem like a mythical creature. The skin part isn't true. But the strange animal with a horn part is.

The truth... Is out there!

God I hope his vision for this film is good... No over the top things, no forced collaboration between preds and humans (we got enough of that IMO), just a gritty and dark survival movie, violent, implacable. Aaaand with a great pred design of course !  ;D

To be fully honest, at this point, just a better looking pred than what we recently got, even far from great, would be enough for me.

Was there really a plan to put a bigfoot/sasquatch in this movie??

I pray they're winding us up with that!!

I've always thought a Pred vs Silverback would make for good viewing. Think I even posted it a while back when The Predator was doing the rounds!

Some cool ideas about Pred vs extinct species. I think what would be really good would be a series of shorts like the Marvel One Shots which show a brief glimpse of other/off-world stuff.

Like short clips of them "earning their stripes" as it were by showing ascension rituals or first hunts etc.

I always remember a fan art of a Pred leaping through the sky with it's combi stick ready to impale a giant sea/insect creature and the moment I saw it I thought "that would be brilliant on screen".  I can never find the pic online these days though!

Like maybe you could have sort of drone footage or something showcasing hunts. We know they learn fast from Noland in Predators; so it'd make sense if they had helmet cams or rigged out surveillance drones like in Predators (appreciate that was the Super Preds - but you catch my drift) so they could review and learn/adapt.

There's something telling about the fact that they sent him home early and he wasn't included in Jeff Cutters post.

He did tweet that it had wrapped though.

Indeed. But he did that about the last movie too, and we all know what happened with that.

Okay, now if I had to bet one way or another, put all my money on one result, would I bet on a Sasquatch being in Skulls?  No. However, the idea is not 100% eliminated as a possibility in my mind either. Meaning I never thought they would show us a Practical FX Bear suit either. Never. Geez, what a spoiler reveal. But the bear-cat was pretty much out of the bag with fans. We hypothesized that a bear would be in it. Well same with the sasquatch-cat, also out of the bag, long before filming began. So yes, dammit, fingers crossed! :laugh:

Now, if they are reading our comments and posts and trolling us, well, that would be pretty funny. I'm already convinced Dan was intrenched in the fan community long before. Remember Dan came to John Davis while they were working on Shane's Black's The Predator and pitched this idea. (I just love the genesis of this. Rooted from a single director & single writer's vision versus a writer's room.) So if they're trolling us, that would be hilarious. #TeamSasquatch reminds me of the #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan I used to see everywhere when "Captain America: Civil War" came out

An addendum: I'm just loving that "Skulls" title in the Predator font. I still hope they stick with that title, I really do. And I still find it humorous that this movie was reported as "Skull" worldwide, seemingly thanks to a drop off in John Davis' mic. :laugh:

After careful consideration, I think I'd be totally cool with a bigfoot showing up in Skulls. I'm not expecting one to, but if it did I think I'd come down more on the "oh yeah!" side of the reactions than "oh no!"

And now that it's wrapped it's time to.....continue to keep our fingers crossed and hope it's good! :laugh: Come oooooon back to basics no-nonsense Predator movie! No trying to reinvent the wheel or throw in any unnecessary twists, please! Just good old-fashioned real and gritty Predator action in the period setting we've all waited sooooo many years to see!

LOL. I think I'd say the same for myself. Who knows, sasquatch doesn't have to be some cartoony lumbering buffoon, like it is in pop culture. It could be more monstrous, akin to psycho-bear from The Revenant. I'd be ok with this! I'd see a proper sasquatch movie, unrelated to Predator  ;D

Just because Dane posted a photo with that bigfoot costume doesn't mean that's the one used in the movie. from the looks of it he's played a bunch of different monsters etc.. He could be wearing a different suit or be something else entirely. There's no way of telling. We can't assume that some post from a few months ago is the tell-all for the plot of this movie.

Of course! That's why it never made it into one of our articles, not even the few with speculation. Even when the pics first caught my eye and I posted them in our forums, I had no idea Dane was definitely going to be working on Skulls. But since then... he turned out he was... and it's all just been fun fan speculation, dreaming up a scenario based on "real" recorded Native American encounters with a Bigfoot, where a Predator would be on Earth not to hunt the Comanche but something bigger (which may be accurate just with a bear).

All this apparel gifted to the crew was probably set up ahead of time with the shoot.

Yeah, it could ultimately be a working title, absolutely. But... I'm also looking at it this way...

First, producer John Davis announced the movie is called "Skulls". That's the first thing John Davis says here when he's asked about a new Predator movie:



Davis wasn't asked Hey man, what is the new Predator film called? Nothing like that. Yet John Davis offers freely that the movie's title is called "Skulls" on his own accord.

Now I remember one of the Terminator sequels working title was "Vista". I wouldn't imagine a Producer coming out and saying in a pre-interview "The new Terminator film is called 'Vista' everyone!" So that's where "Skulls" became a real possibility for me.

Now regarding Dan's post, to me I view it with three possible intents... 1. to bring up old shoots like he's done in the past and the timing was coincidentally bad... 2. to let us know the title may very well change... or 3. as a reaction to everyone reporting the new Predator film title wrong as "Skull" singular because of an assuming mic drop-off and Collider breaking that title... but Dan couldn't talk directly about it.

Guess we'll see!
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: SiL on Sep 13, 2021, 09:38:36 PM
Every title is a working title until the film is finished  :laugh:

It does feel like they absolutely intend it to be the title, but John Wick was meant to be Scorn until Keanu Reeves kept referring to the film by his character's name. Which, yes, is the opposite of the situation here, but the point is anything can happen.

I think for now it's safe to assume it's very much the title of the movie. At most I'd anticipate them adding the word Predator at the front, and even that I wouldn't bet on.

Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Sep 14, 2021, 04:56:45 PM
Put me firmly in the "I'd like to see a Sasquatch in this" camp. The Predator movies feel like they could easily exist in a sort of slightly heightened reality where that sort of thing would exist - and the Predator itself is, in a sense, a "cryptid"/local legend in and of itself in the world of the films. Especially in the first movie.

I'd be cool with a bear as well, of course (and am excited at the prospect of seeing a Predator go up against any non-human creature on screen in a non-AVP movie; Predators really botched the potential on the game planet in that regard, unfortunately).

Anyways, the more I see of this movie, the more excited I'm getting. Took a lot to get this fully on my radar after how much of a massive letdown The Predator was, but there's a lot of potential here for something very cool. And I like Dan Trachtenberg a lot (but then again, I can say the same about Shane Black... :D :'(). Choosing to go into this one very optimistic for now, though.

To be honest, the fact they shown us the bear suit is quite suspicious. I mean if the big reveal is Predator vs Bear they kinda blew it. I think something more is at play. What if Skulls in nod not for just one 1987 classic with Kevin Peter Hall, but actually two of them? My speculation is our protagonist will actually team up with Bigfoot to stop Alien Headhunter. Somthing like force of nature vs monster of technology with the girl as key character to solve the conflict. Anyway #TeamSasquatch 4 life.

Wouldn't that be a twist  :laugh:  That'd definitely be interesting to say the least!  Would much prefer that than the other way around, in any event.  Especially if it's a creature similar in character to the Tuunbaq from The Terror.

One concern I have with this is I think they could try to tie it in with Billy's ancestry.

IIRC, I think Billy was of Sioux origin? So there may be some revisions/redactions; but I don't think I'll be happy if they give us a backstory and tap into Billy's 'mystical/psychic' background that was touched on in the novelisation of P1.

My speculation is our protagonist will actually team up with Bigfoot to stop Alien Headhunter. Somthing like force of nature vs monster of technology with the girl as key character to solve the conflict.

I'm 100% #TeamSasquatch but that goes further than I'm prepared to commit to this excellent concept. :laugh:


Quote from: PAS Spinelli on Sep 14, 2021, 08:16:37 PM
Weird stuff has always been part of Predator, magic and other worldly senses were in the first 2 Predators for example
Billy could sense the Predator
King Willy could also sense him, and tell Harringan he wasn't from Earth

The demon!

The Thomas Brothers proclaimed their love for ancient mythology and classic literature, their adoration for creatures like the Cyclops and Grendel from Beowulf, and the Predator was in part a culmination of these creatures. The modern day Minotaur they called it. So that mythological / supernatural prism was purposely baked into the creature by Jim & John Thomas. And it's been sorely missing since Predator 2 in my humble opinion. Until "Skulls" hopefully!

Its best to keep expectations low nowadays. Nothing will top the first Predator since it did everything right. I seriously don't think it can get any worse than The Predator. I mean for what it was, it was a entertaining mess of a movie  ;D

Wendigo wouldn't be off limits. Though I can see them steering clear of it or having to work within the parameters of the cultural advisors. If anything mythological shows up I'm willing to bet money it's a case of mistaken identity where they think it's something else and it turns out it is the Predator. I don't think you'll get Predator going against Sasquatch as much I think Predator would be sasquatch. That could even be the reason for the bear. The Predator kills it, takes the pelt, and we see something big and furry in the distance which turns out is Predator.

I like that image.  The bear could also do enough damage to the Predator to bring down its capacity, so we'd get a team-up of sorts: bear + humans (sacred forces of nature unite!)  Or, humans + Predator despite its lack of popularity, OR if we're feeling really sassy, bear + Predator and then the humans are f****d.

Either way, my money is on the Predator surviving this film.

Aside from the bear-focus, if that costume is any indication, it probably wouldn't be a Wendigo since the legs are all wrong.

Although it would be very supernatural, it would not stop being interesting. Not to mention, they can always make a 'midichlorian' by turning the Wendigo into an alien so that it wouldn't be magical. It would not be a good idea though.  :laugh:

For a moment I thought that the Wendigo-themed creature feature was the adaptation of this short film.  :laugh:

But now I know that it's not like that. And I also remember that I was totally in awe! when I learned that Del Toro was key in the project.  8)

https://youtu.be/IEM5HW7q5dY

But overall, it wouldn't bother me that the mythical legendary creature is actually the Predator. It was almost strange that Predator 2 didn't flirt with the idea that Rastafarian culture was somehow inspired by encounters with the Predator. Still my favorite Pred film ever.  8)

I mean, the Wendigo has been used in numerous ways over the years, and in much worse movies than a Predator sequel specifically about Native Americans. Hell, the commonly known depiction of the a wendigo with antlers stems from a fairly crappy early 2000s horror movie. And need I mention The Lone Ranger movie? :laugh:

It's absolutely heartbreaking as a Predator fan to see the franchise be hollowed out and used as a vessel for divisive "progressive" politics instead of focusing on a story that all of us can get engrossed in.

Film is dead, Socialism turned it into propaganda instead of entertainment. The timeline got darker as of now.

Who knows, both Kyle Strauts & Dane could both be Predators, either in joint Predator duties since they are the same height... or it's not a sole Predator hunting story but rather a dual hunters story like in the comic series "Predator: Hunters III"... or perhaps Kyle Strauts is a Bear-Sasquatch-whatever-Predator backup and Dane has main Predator duties (or vice-versa).

Sasquatch is boring honestly. Make it a Wendigo for Generation Meme bonus points. I know it's not the right tribe btw, but it doesn't have to be their monster.
Wendigos are a part of religions that are still used today so that's a no go
Why is it a no go? It's not like there haven't been films or stories which feature religious iconography. Not trying to be blase, genuine question.
Because it would be insulting to a culture that has already been shat on by Americans far too much?
OK, I can understand that. I'm coming at this from a non American perspective, and I'm not trying to be insulting in any way, just in case this comes across as insensitive. I'm just trying to understand your automatic 'no go' regarding wendigo.
There have already been many films, stories, games, and other media which have featured wendigo. There have also, as I said, been many films and media with other, existing, religious iconography. Since we know that this movie stars Native American actors, then why couldn't it incorporate the mythology and legends, including the wendigo?
Now, the wendigo may not be Comanche lore, but, as far as I'm aware, we're not 100% sure that it's definitely the Comanche that are depicted in Skulls, and I also wouldn't put it past the studio to mix up Native American folklore.
Since your points include it being insulting, and that it's an extant religion, I still can't see why they wouldn't do it. This isn't my own personal opinion, I'm just thinking of movie studios. There are plenty of films made which could be classed as insulting to extant religion, but they still get made, so I would be surprised if a movie studio automatically rejected the concept of including a wendigo.

Yeah because no one ever takes their requests to not include their religion in Media seriously, it doesn't matter if the Tribe being represented in here is the right one, they don't want their folklore to be part of our media, specially as some stock monster, it's basically culture appropriation

It may be pop corn entertainment. But in a way it shows audiences something related to a culture. I could bet that if a movie about Norse deities use Viracocha as a being part of Norse cosmology, people would already be complaining and all. Hell! I've seen people claiming that a WWII movie with zombies can't have black soldiers because it's historically inaccurate, and Polish people being picky about The Witcher. We must be empathetic, but aye! I must admit that I base my comment on anecdotal evidence observed here on the site and on the internet.

Although the mythological concept has diverse origins.

I suppose it could be that both Kyle and Dane are sharing the main Predator role. 

I would hire two performers, for sure! A twisted ankle here, a broken wrist there... there's just too much risk (to me) to hire just one performer that can don the suit while shooting on-location in the wilderness of Alberta!

I'd fake hire a bunch of people to throw off the media and mess with people like us.
Like hiring a (famous) actor, make him sign an NDA and then release a picture of him in a familiar setting or with some known item from whatever franchise.
When people are riled up enough, I'd do it again.

The fact that Jeff Cutter left out Kyle and deleted the IG post makes me think they are holding off the Predator reveal and trailer for awhile. Not even the Imdb lists kyle, strange. It could be possible that DD and Kyle will both be portraying the same Pred in certain scenes, or maybe there is going to be 2 of them at some point. I'm still #teamsasquatch or bear tho

The final result will be about how predators originated from crabs like we originated from monkeys.

It won't be Sasquatch, and at most it will be a bear. However, there was a potential for cheap viral marketing, since unlike the Predator which is an artistic creation with entertainment as its main purpose, Sasquatch is part of folklore and as such there are people who believe in its existence. They could have done an alternate reality game (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_reality_game), posting creepy photos and videos of a guy disguised as cryptid, with challenges on social media persuading people to film the creature to share their experiences online, as they try to figure out where the next sighting of the elusive creature will be.

There's something about humanity that just likes the idea of a giant ape-man roaming around the hillside  :laugh:  "Bigfoot" is seriously like, a lifestyle in some places.

But I agree, though the idea is kind of fun, it's a stretch.  And then you run the risk of misappropriating elements of one culture onto another, which even if there's good intentions, can still be in poor taste.  Plus, why go that route when you could potentially use a giant Grizzly?

Teenage predators go to Earth to dress up as cryptids and mess with humans.
But because they don't have weapons and aren't careful enough, one gets caught while playing bigfoot.
Then the others have to rescue him and get back home before their parents find out.

Title of the movie should be a sci-fi/space version of something like Caddyshack or Meatballs.

It'll take place during a ufo craze,
in the late 50's. Era of greasers, squares, cool cars and rock 'n' roll. And lots of intolerant people who don't take kindly to strangers, let alone alien beings.

Or the 60's. With hippies who want to see "bigfoot" released. They'll help the other preds to rescure their bud. And along their adventure are also introduced to another kind of bud.

Either way, a time with less tech, more open minded (stupid) people and great music.
And I wouldn't mind a short scene where they meet Elvis.

Housewife character: "Now who left this bloody skull and spine in the living room? Yautja, was that you?"

*laugh track*

Yautja enters the scene.

*audience applaudes and cheers*

Yautja: "Click click growl grunt click, Kevin. Grown grunt click click." (That must be Kevin's. I was busy doing my homework)

*laugh track*

Housewife: "But you're hands are covered in blood!"

Yautja: "Uhm... Grunt growl click growl click grunt." (Uhm... Ok, you got me there.)

Housewife: "Oh, Yautja..."

I do kind of wish that they'd gone the Sasquatch route rather then the bear route (assuming either end up included) as I think it'd be easier to pull off a convincing sasquatch suit with an actor inside than an actor in a bear suit (as we've seen and it looks kinda janky - unless I missed something about that bear suit not being from Skulls).


I feel like because sasquatch isn't real it's less likely to run into uncanny valley territory compared to a bear which will be very obvious if it's slightly off from reality in terms of movement/muscles etc


Hell, I think dude-in-a-suit sasquatch would even look better than a CGI bear seeing as we won't be getting Revenant level fx in this movie

From what's been revealed to us publicly, Kyle arrived in Alberta in the timeframe filming was supposed to begin, left in the timeframe filming was supposed to end, gave us plenty of scenic Alberta Instagram stories in between including a couple of off-set shots with a couple of "Skulls" cast/crew members. So I think at this point, Kyle in "Skulls" is a very reasonable conclusion. :)

Thus just got me thinking - was there a stunt actors in the original Predator? I think that was the only film where a Predator was played exclusively by one person. I imagine Voodoo can correct me.

Scrap that, the red suit acrobatics I'm pretty sure weren't Hall.

Yes sir. Stan Winston's Predator crew was a small team, with only one character actor (Kevin Peter Hall) and one person of Kevin Peter Hall's stature. For a full film I would believe they would have to consider alternates, but their Predator work was considered "reshoots" with only 2-3 weeks originally designated I recall. Stan celebrated Kevin too, that he never had to lose a shot in those "Predator" reshoots because Kevin couldn't handle it anymore. Not one shot lost. KPH is just a legend. :)

But the red FX suits, yeah, it's also my understanding as well that some stunt guys wore some red suits, but I've never found the precise people named in text or credits.

Kyle Strauts representation says he's being the "title character", but who knows...

* Kyle & Dane could be sharing joint Predator duties since they are the same height.

* "Skulls" may not be a sole Predator hunting story but rather a dual hunters story.

* Perhaps Dane was a Bear and/or Sasquatch and/or Predator backup and Kyle had main Predator duties... or vice-versa.

For a full film I would believe they would have to consider alternates, but their Predator work was considered "reshoots" with only 2-3 weeks originally designated I recall. Stan celebrated Kevin too, that he never had to lose a shot in those "Predator" reshoots because Kevin couldn't handle it anymore. Not one shot lost. KPH is just a legend. :)

But the red FX suits, yeah, it's also my understanding as well that some stunt guys wore some red suits, but I've never found the precise people named in text or credits.

Craig Baxley mentioned a couple of names in his biography , Henry Kingi and Tony Brubaker, who did stunt scenes in the pred suit.
I think Brian Simpson also was in the suit at some point, possibly in certain slaughterhouse sequences, but I couldn't get a reply from him yet.

I have a feeling that Wyatt Weed said it was the stunt co-ordinator (I know he worked on P2, but he knew the guy from P1). Brian Johnson?

So according to the second-hand info Wyatt provided, Brian Simpson, seen below with Kevin Peter Hall's hand on his head....

...wore the red camouflage suit in the trees, and was "pretty sure" Brian was the Predator in these wide shots:

Camouflaged Predator moves a lot different than non-camouflaged. In the minigun scene, while he's running away, he even does a little skip.

As much as the film disappoints, I still like Fugitive's design. I was happy with that.

That said, I wouldn't turn my nose up at Gort either. But I do always find it fun when we get a new take. I'm expecting some sort of warpaint for this one for some reason.

Even though to me the Gort design is vastly superior, I did find the armor design of the Fugitive rather interesting, even though it did stray from the ancient yet advanced look we know and love. The mask needed a warning label though...

Do Sasquatches have dogs?

In all seriousness though, I recollect that there are few specific breeds of dog that are used "as" wolves in movies. So this very well may mean a Wolf is featured in "Skulls", even though  it's technically played by a dog.

Gort wouldn't necessarily be new, it's in Predator 2. But I wouldn't mind seeing it brought back especially if we do have a returning Predator like Jungle Hunter given its connection to his film. But I would prefer if it's someone new if they do something totally new rather than redress old props if they can help it. I like each Predator having it's own identity with its designs. And even if it's a returning character, we're seeing them a couple hundred years prior to when we see them die, they're going to look different and really should.

I wouldn't be against war paints.

And he would be the guy to definitely incorporate Native American instruments into his score.

Silvestri said he would score another Predator film if asked, right around the time of Shane Black's entry. Let's hope Dan Trachtenberg tries to get him for "Skulls" at least, through all the obstacles necessary to do so (if any).

Are you talking the Cheyenne Seleah audition Clubroot posted above? If so, yeah, based on her audition videos, she tried out for the roll of "Kee", but it went Amber Midthunder. (Posting that video really didn't apply to the Stefany conversation here and I'm assuming that's where the confusion lies.)

But actor Stefany Mathias on the otherhand, who's auditions are no longer online, she tried out for the role of "Aruka" and the dialogue spoken seemed to clearly identify Aruka as Kee's mother.

(https://i.ibb.co/5BXDKFF/Screenshot-20211005-194122-Gallery.jpg)

But now that someone updated IMDB crediting Stephany as "Sumu", I was curious if she's really playing Kee's mother, the role we know as "Aruka"... or perhaps she was just casted in another, maybe lesser role.

I'm a little disappointed that they are saying that this film will be the Predator's/Yautja's first visit to earth, ignoring every bit of established canon. According to many comic stories and even the AVP films they have been around much longer than the time period this film is set in. I know recently they found footprints in North America that show humans have been in North America for 23,000 years, but I'm pretty sure this film takes place around the 14-1500s.

I don't see any problems at all ignoring completely AVP and the comics.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: (Bad Blood) on Oct 09, 2021, 12:54:58 PM
AVP isn't so much my concern as I can take or leave it, but the comics go back almost as far as the first film itself, the first comic was released in 1989 just a year and a half after Predator was released in theaters and a good portion of the comics are very good stories, that I think are fathoms better than any Predator movie after Predator and Predator 2, completely ignoring the comics hurts the continuity and is not good for the story or franchise in my personal opinion.
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: Doomofman on Oct 09, 2021, 01:13:06 PM
It's a movie series. The vast majority of people going to see it wont have read any of the comics (or likely know they even exist). Ignoring comics doesn't hurt continuity at all as the comics aren't part of the movie continuity


Just to add, I'm not against movies ret-conning other movies (I'd be happy for future Predator movies to disregard The Predator and both AVP movies as they aren't any good) but Predator is a movie franchise first and foremost so it's not on the movies to respect the storylines of the comics
Title: Re: Skulls Catch All Thread
Post by: Voodoo Magic on Oct 09, 2021, 02:16:28 PM
Even though John Davis said it was the Predators' first visit to Earth, I personally doubt it will be conveyed on-screen in any way, so I ultimately believe this will be a non-issue.  :)

AVP isn't so much my concern as I can take or leave it, but the comics go back almost as far as the first film itself, the first comic was released in 1989 just a year and a half after Predator was released in theaters and a good portion of the comics are very good stories, that I think are fathoms better than any Predator movie after Predator and Predator 2, completely ignoring the comics hurts the continuity and is not good for the story or franchise in my personal opinion.

As a hardcore fan, this is an issue for you. The average moviegoer likely doesn't even know there are comics to contradict, and they're where the $$$ is - there just aren't enough fanatics to pay the bills on a studio film, and so keeping them happy is secondary at absolute best.

Objectively, having the Predator visit Earth in the 17th century simply limits the potential universe building of the Predator series. Profit wise, means less means to rake in that cash and creative wise it confines the series into a corner. I mean if there was a film of a Predator hunting during the Mongol Invasion of Japan during the 12th century, people will line up to see it. Sure, someone can say samurai still existed in the 17th century too, but with the Mongols in a interesting time period of high conflict?

I feel it's not really as much of an issue as it's being made out. Has that much of the franchise, EU or otherwise, actually done much with them hunting here for thousands of years over the last two and a bit decades?

I know there are a few stories, but I never got the impression it was a particularly important aspect. Most stories are contemporary or near future and don't necessarily lean on a millennia-spanning relationship.

I'm not advocating the idea of this film being first contact, but I don't feel it's really throttling anything meaningfully.

I suppose it doesn't really matter that much, i just got used to the idea that they had been a large part of human history in AVP and other media, now that doesn't mean I'm not open to change, there are just a few stories i don't want to be erased (like they seem to do all the time these days, looking at you Star Wars) because there are a few outstanding ones, now they will probably remain unaffected though, even if they make this their first visit to earth.

Nothing's really "erased".

You're still free to enjoy those old stories and their different continuities.

Something being "canon" doesn't automatically raise it up to a level of sainthood.

It's only relevant when you want to see how story X relates to stories Y and Z.

It'd probably be a difficult point to get across without some sort of dialogue between multiple Predators.  Though I could see it being this particular Predator's first time reaching Earth, which wouldn't be that far fetched - especially if we're discounting comics/novels.

I will push down my cautious optimism for a moment and say I can totally see the film go that route cuz Hollywood these days, and as TQ said, its going to suck. I can't see this be handled with style and class writing. I think about it like this, say if the film goes the Apocalypto route and had the tribe talk in their native language with subtitles for it, this just gives the prefect excuse to give subs to Predator dialogue too. I can see this being used that way.

I just hope not and just pray that this is just a story of a historical hunt in the past.

For me it just demystifies them too much. But I'm on the "don't show me their homeworld" side of the table. Yes they are clearly intelligent and would speak to each other somehow but I don't really want to see it, they're already human enough being essentially a dude in a suit, watching them have a chat about their trip to Earth is just something I don't want to see. But each to their own, different people want different things from this series and who am I to say one way is right or wrong

BAM!!! You took the very response right out of my mouth as I was reading this debate. It demystifies the Predators too much! 100% Agreed.

I can roll with it to some degree in the EU, but demystifying your monster in film is the wrong direction to take in my opinion, as does explaining the Space Jockey or the origin of the Alien (looking at you Ridley). Don't eliminate the unknown and all the mystery, wonder and fear that comes with it!

Subtitles. Hearing their own language and noises is fine to me. The audience extrapolating what's going on is fine to me. Having it translated for us in English just demystifies the creature (to me).

Well, with the cod piece, pectoral muscles, etc. etc., I'd say most general audiences view and refer to the Predators they've seen as "hes" versus "it" (like with Alien) so I believe those same audiences already believe there are female Predators out there... so I wouldn't see any demystifying going on there, if what we saw in the below pic was hunting Comanche.

(https://i.pinimg.com/736x/e5/62/0d/e5620db2205fb7d41949bdc49c6dccd7.jpg)

So to me, seeing a female Predator doesn't come close in regards to demystifying the creature, as reading dialogue like this would...

"Great one, there's life on the third planet from the sun!"
"Yes, I see Cha-Tuck! Much hunting to be had!"
"Aye, much Skulls to collect. More trophies for our wall!"
"We will have many kills this day!"
"We go at once! Land the Ship on that mountain Cha-tuck!"

To me, the more of this dialogue occurs in a film, the more it demystifies, the worse it gets. I say to some degree, treat the Predator like Michael Myers in a slasher movie, and I'll be smiling ear-to-ear. :)

So I do get where the idea comes from, that not having that "understanding" through dialogue is vital to keeping the Predator's mystery - and keeping them at an affective arm's length.  Idk, to me that facet of mystery is not integral to the Predator character, or keeping it's integrity.  That's just not my individual benchmark.  I'd say that the sexual dimorphism was more important to me, but alas...

 The Predator has been around since 1987. With several movies, novels, and comics, canon or not. There is no mystifying them anymore. They're hunters, they have tribes, codes of honor, they look different, and we've seen females. And they're home planet, and their subspecies rivals. Two members of the same species talking to one another takes absolutely nothing away.

Infact I would actually LOVE to see two Predators communicating and coordinating during a hunt. Like actually see it as it's happening, not off screen.

Honestly, the only one I can see write Predator dialogue well is Steve Perry. Its not too clean that it breaks apart from how they act, but also not too savage "ugha bunga" type of tone that would make them dumb brutes. I can't dismiss the idea of Predator dialogue but just that idk if anyone can do it justice.

Infact I would actually LOVE to see two Predators communicating and coordinating during a hunt. Like actually see it as it's happening, not off screen.

I hear ya, but I would counter many of the aspects in the EU wouldn't translate well on screen to general audiences. That's one of the reasons why I was so personally thrilled with the Hunter's series. With both Hunters I and II, my feelings were those scripts could be translated on screen verbatim!

Honestly, the only one I can see write Predator dialogue well is Steve Perry. Its not too clean that it breaks apart from how they act, but also not too savage "ugha bunga" type of tone that would make them dumb brutes. I can't dismiss the idea of Predator dialogue but just that idk if anyone can do it justice.

The last thing I would want is Predators coming off as Klingons though arguing about honor etc., and that's the risk. Predators can be seen in the prism of mysterious, mythical "demon"-like scary monsters that fit well in a slasher movie mold, while Klingons do not. At the very least, I think there's definitely a balance needed here to maintain that, which leans more to the audience-not-fully-understanding-what-the-Predators-are-saying side imo.

I liked the subtitles when the Ultimate Predator was talking to the Fugitive traitor and its HQ.  I also liked when it used the translation machine to communicate with goof troops.  I think Predators discussing human hunting for the first time would be cool to see. 

Heck, to make things more interesting, I would love if they studied the weapons that the Natives were using and then designed their very own bows, spears, and axes.  You know, to keep the fight fair when they fly down to begin the hunt.

The Predator has been around since 1987. With several movies, novels, and comics, canon or not. There is no mystifying them anymore. They're hunters, they have tribes, codes of honor, they look different, and we've seen females. And they're home planet, and their subspecies rivals. Two members of the same species talking to one another takes absolutely nothing away.

Infact I would actually LOVE to see two Predators communicating and coordinating during a hunt. Like actually see it as it's happening, not off screen.

We need to get back to the mysterious killer vibe, the devil came for them,the eyes of the deamon, rather than the predator janitor came with the children and missus and had a little chit chat with translators about the global warming problem .Less is more, always.

That would explain why the heroes have a chance. If you got two and at least one of them hasn't been to Earth before you could have a scenario where the newbie is learning how to be a hunter. I could even see the ending being something like Kee not being accepted by the rest of her people but the second Predator recognizes her skill.

Yeah, I saw that too. I don't know if sharing a new Stan Winston School Instagram post of Kevin Peter Hall as the Predator gets us any closer to Dane confirming he's playing a Predator... but I think when Dane commented it was a pleasure being their sasquatch, I think hardly anyone was taking sasquatch literally  (much to my dismay :'() and assume it means a Predator.

Hey so I can't find anything on it, but how would the Comanche handle one of their women becoming a warrior like in this new Predator film? There were tribes that had famous warrior women but I can't find anything about that being common practice with the Comanche, or even if it was allowed at all. That is one of the main themes of this film right?

I'm guessing they'll be going for proto-Comanche to avoid being too tied to established Comanche history.

You cut off my last sentence saying we're pretty much all convinced Dane is playing a Predator already. Websites like IGN are too.

Kyle and Dane are the same height though so it's possible they are sharing the same role. We'll see!  :)👍

Didn't mean to cut ya off, was more just responding to that bit. Them both paying tribute to KPH feels like more evidence to me, or just a fun tease. But yeah that is the question right there, if he's a backup performer, or if they're playing separate Predator characters.

There's something to be said about Dane being tagged by Jeff Cutter along with Amber and Dakota... but not Kyle. Seems to me like Kyle was a backup or photo double or something.

That would be my best guess also.  Kyle has more experience, so it would stand to reason that he'd have the primary Predator role, or "The" Predator role if there ends up being another creature/Predator in the movie.

But Fugitive is definitely the best painted over Wolf (and Scar.) I find Wolf's paint schemes so poor and rubber mask looking.

Yep I agree about the paint job. And you know I do agree on ADI's predator mouths. But with the actual lighting in AVPR I always thought Wolf looked mostly good with what was shown of him. On the behind the scenes though not so much  ;D

Yeah, I think Unmasked Wolf is the single worst Predator in the series. The sculpt is cartoonish, the skin looks like rubber, and the movement is stiff and mechanical. There's not really a nice thing to say about it as far as I'm concerned.

Ouch!  Significant others united is a very good thing to see, but telling us to get a life is perhaps a weee little bit harsh?

As anything, we should refer to our Elders.

No, and of course folks are entitled to their opinions. We're just being snarky here.

But it would be nice to once in a while post about them without thinking "oh boy, here we go..."  :P

I understand how that could come off as being harsh which is why I edited and deleted my snarky comment quickly after. So I don't think its fair to bring that up as I already corrected myself?

That being said, being a long time fan it gets very tiring seeing the same negative comments being brought up in every post. I'm down for constructive criticism in the appropriate threads (as there is even some stuff I agree with).

Sizzy, RidgeTop messaged me that you edited your post, so I just came in to edit mine, but now that you responded again I guess I'll leave it.

But I'm not sure it's reasonable to suggest I'm not being fair for replying to you. I didn't notice you made an edit when I was typing a reply. If I did, I would have changed it.




In regards to this generally at no one in particular, I always suggest for myself to remember to take a step back from any topic we're passionate about, if I sense I'm starting to feel heated towards others, especially if others do not see it your way. I have to remember we're all fans here.

As a fan of "Predator 2" before it was somewhat 'in' to do so.... or probably more pertinent... as a fan of "AvP: Requiem" I constantly hear what a piece of garbage the film is constantly... more than ADI gets criticism for the Predators. But it's very freeing to not let other people's opinions affect you or the things you love.  :)

Cheers!

To be fair it's the nature of every Alien & Predator thread here. Alien or Predator, often the conversation leads off the book, comic, or film at hand into many different directions, often into ongoing debates that never end - just go on hiatus.  :)

Nah, it usually comes up when it's relevant. Ridley says why Alien Covenant failed, we talk about the beast is cooked again. AvPR, comes up, people talk about how bad it is again. Comics and it goes back to tracing and Marvel again now. A pic of an ADI Predator shows up, people will reflect on how unhappy they are with it (including you in this thread). And it's going to stay revelant as ADI works on Skulls. Fandom baby!  :)

Yes people do complain (and complain about people complaining like I did) here about everything.

Personally I try to be mindful about how often and how I go about my criticisms, even with things in the franchises I really don't like.

We've driven away franchise creators from this forum before who were kind enough to engage with us because of how poorly we've gone about criticisms, and although StudioADI doesn't currently have a social media manager active here like they did before, that may not always be the case. Hell I regret how I went about things with NECA even though I thought I was being civil.

As SizzyBubbles mentioned, just gets tiring, there are threads to discuss it till heart's content. And like her, I also agree with some of the criticisms of ADI designs, as much as I overall love that studio. There's a distinct difference between constructive criticism in the appropriate places and endless trolling/bullying.

But it's true. There's not even a fine line between being a passionate fan and just being an obnoxious bully. The problem is when you're only surrounded by other fans it gets difficult to see just how noxious the behaviour really is, and it's not until you come up against one of the artists that you get a wake up call.

Are you suggesting the recent activity in this thread as endless trolling/bullying? I think the matter at hand is, if you weren't a fan of ADI Predators, it wouldn't be bothering you, and we wouldn't be having this conversation.

I doubt Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Salvador Larroca will be interested in talking to us after some of the things and jokes you have said in these forums, but you're never calling the creators 'names' and neither do the people who criticize ADI Predators. They criticize the work, but have nice things to say about the people themselves and other work.

The point is, we can't get angry over people not liking ADI Predators but be fine with people not liking the creative team over Marvel Comics. We have to be true to ourselves. Otherwise we'll be accused of kowtowing to creatives like some other outlets will be.

I'm saying the recent activity compounded with the history of this sort of activity could be considered as such to some.

Sure I'm a fan of ADI, call me biased if you like. But if people constantly brought up complaints in this, that, and the other thread about a specific thing that plenty of people do like, I'd say "maybe ease up a bit?" as I'm attempting to say here.

If I thought the Winston designs were shit (I'd be crazy) and brought it up any time that studio was mentioned even in passing, I'd wager you might get a bit irritated yourself.

So to say akin to: "If you didn't like the thing you like that we constantly bash you wouldn't be annoyed." I mean... yeah, that's correct.

Sparingly I think it's fine to poke at things we dislike when the topic arises, but ad nauseum it's... well, nauseating.

But as I said, there are threads for it too should folks want to rant about it endlessly. Not trying to silence anyone, just sharing perspective here.

With Larroca it's an ethical issue, so that's a bit different I'd say. Tristan Jones who is friendly with PKJ has called out the art publicly. We probably wouldn't want to talk to Larroca either.

We'll disagree if its "ad nauseum." But again, I didn't even start the conversation. Let me repeat that, I didn't even start the conversation. And many participated. And none of it was mean spirited. So unless we're going to be banning our community from saying how they feel about creature designs, or banning me from participating, I'm not certain where we're going here.

Again, I always suggest for anyone to take a step back from any topic we're passionate about, if they sense their starting to feel heated about it, feel their skin may be thinner on the particular topic, especially if they're one seemingly in the minority opinion. A community member did the very same thing in our Marvel Alien comic thread that I very much like, and unfortunately lashed out. So I gave him the same advice. Because I do think there was definitely some lashing out today, even if it was edited afterwards.

It's important for all of us to remember we're all fans here. Cheers mate! Cheers to all. I really do love everyone here. This whole community. The crazy and the extra crazys. The confident. The insecure. The artists. The haters and the lovers. The nihilists and the existentialists. Can't express how much I appreciate everyone in our AvPGalaxy community and what makes everyone special in their own way. Just love ya all!

Nobody has mentioned banning anything. Maybe Sizzy got "heated" with the "grow up" comment but she corrected herself.

At best there's been an appeal for people to maybe be more aware of getting hung up on a particular topic that seems to rear its ugly head at the slightest provocation, and leave it to relevant threads rather than let it permeate every tangentially related topic.

Why is this being characterized as anyone advocating banning speech? That feels like a fairly disingenuous attempt to make the conversation sound less reasonable than it has been.

You'll need to explain, I'm afraid. I don't think what RidgeTop said was an overreaction; he's not the first to mention feeling that this particular dead horse gets dragged out all too often, so clearly he's not alone. The solution was clearly stated -- think before one posts, and perhaps take it to a relevant thread if the unquenchable urge arises. These are pretty standard things to request, I'm not sure why they're being chategorized as unreasonable here :-\

Sure, people should be civil about how they feel, but its also being aware that there will always be fans who are more uncivilized about these kind of things than others. That alone shouldn't never get them to run away due to the poor behavior of others. Its also not fair for the ones who are behaving as well, as now they are lumped into this negative group they never asked to be part of. Its something that big studios and creators should be aware of by now.

I mean....yes, but also I doubt that ADI actually looks here and cares about our thoughts on this. I don't know, they don't strike me as the kind of people that bend easily due to some trolling here and there (if there is any, as some light jokes aren't real toxic stuff.)

I mean, I guess I don't see how our talks about ADI's handling of Predator design be truly negative in the sense some make it out to be. Tiresome, maybe for me as I don't heavily frequent here. I say this with the experience of being a Predator Hunting Grounds fan and looking at the horrendous mess in the Illfonic Predator Hunting Grounds Community Forums, that right there is real trolling/bullying, by comparison, we are organized and civil with each other here with some slight heated ideas here and there. Its kind of like that theory of mine that Predators can live for tens of hundreds of years convo I had in one of the PHG threads, I try to convay my thoughts as heatless as possible and I never see anyone else there give me any kind of heat there, least that's how it was for me.

I just think the point is that in this fandom or any fandom, its just expected that passionate debates will happen and people must keep in mind that its just talk between fans that no one shouldn't get angry about ever. Especially for any big franchise creator out there, they too should keep this in mind so that it doesn't grind them either.

Because there's not much official happening around this movie I've come up with a new theory which I'm only like 95% joking about...


Having the two creature actors is because they're shooting one set of takes with the predator and one set of takes with the bigfoot in case the legal action wont let them release a predator movie, they'll just turn it into a bigfoot movie

Because there's not much official happening around this movie I've come up with a new theory which I'm only like 95% joking about...


Having the two creature actors is because they're shooting one set of takes with the predator and one set of takes with the bigfoot in case the legal action wont let them release a predator movie, they'll just turn it into a bigfoot movie


:laugh:

That 5% not joking is a scary thought.

Less conspiratorially, it could be to create misleading trailers before "SURPRISE, IT'S A PREDATOR MOVIE".

I mean sure the cat's out of the bag but dumber things have happened.

Jury Trial begins April 19th 2022 so I would imagine "Skulls" will be released prior to that date. Then it will all be about compensating the Thomas Brothers retroactively if the jury favors that the transfer of copyright ownership of their "Hunter" script should have begun in 2021... i.e. probably a second lawsuit would ensue.

And 20th Century Studios will still own 100% of Hunter/Predator internationally/outside the U.S.. No need to change it to a Sasquatch there. ;D

On the one hand I would have said it's possible they might do a "premiere access"-type thing like they did with Black Widow and Jungle Cruise earlier this year where you had to pay extra. But seeing as this is going to be a streaming-only release, I'd imagine it'll just be included with the regular Disney+ subscription.

I don't know. When I read "only on Hulu" for Prey.... as in "only in theaters" for West Side Story, I take it as the release is exclusively available in that format.

(https://i.ibb.co/MDmy7MZ/Screenshot-20211116-085617-Twitter.jpg)

And if we go back years ago, way before Marc Toberoff said Prey would be released on Hulu, back when the Disney execs came to 20th Century Fox after the acquisition and reviewed and hacked up their current film slate in development, it was announced roughly half of those films would be moved from a theatrical release to a streaming release. So this all lines up.

As much as I would like to see Greyback again (although, more correctly, the Golden Angel), I would really not want a retcon of "1718". This is a very good comic. It would be great if the plot is implemented in such a way that the Predator starts hunting Indians, and by the end of the film, events will force him and Naru to cooperate against the colonists. And as an epilogue to show the meeting of Angel and Adolini.

I just ♡adore♡ Predator 1718. It's on my Predator Mount Rushmore of comics along with Predator (Concrete Jungle) Issue #1 and Predator: Hunters Volumes I & II. But 1718 isn't even the length of a single comic and has been always a retelling in my mind anyway (the unknown Thomas' story behind that gun being the original tale.)

In 1990 the Thomas Brothers and Kevin Peter Hall both alluded to the flintlock being an opening for a "Predator 3", with the Thomas Brothers receiving a half-hearted offer to direct - if Predator 2 was a hit at the box office. So the creators seemingly felt this was the right direction to go with a new Predator film and I do too. I just hope both Trachtenberg and Patrick Aison can finally do it justice (if it ultimately comes true).

I'm not so bothered with 1718 being retconned either. The comics are in support of theatrical, so it's not unusual that this happens. I enjoy 1718 but it's never been one of those ones I hold on up high personally.

Oil painted ? Looks more like combination of watercolors, color penciles and some ink to me


I've juist done some bit of Wikipedia reading on 1718's artist, Igor Kordej, and found this:

QuoteBecause of his speed as an artist, at his peak, Kordej was producing artwork for three or four monthly books at the same time. However, as a result, he has attracted heavy criticism for the quality of his art, especially from the readers. Eventually he got fired from Marvel in April 2004.

I mean it would be neat, going by what Voodoo said, if that 1718 mini story actually became the opener to Prey. Kind of like that deleted beginning sequence in AVP where we had that once scene of the Whaling Station in the early 1900s.

If I had to deal with another retcon, fine. It's in service to the films not the other way around even if the films tend to adapt stuff from the extended lore.

That all being said you could still have 1718 kind of work with a name change or they just happened to have the same name given Hunting Grounds does have a flintlock trophy. So unlike the situation with Weyland you could have both still work. More than one Predator has a flintlock trophy and while it might not be Greyback anymore, Golden Angel could be its own character now having encountered his own Adolini. People can have the same name, it's just not the same Adolini as the one Greyback encounters. Alternatively for any reprint they could change the name to fit in whatever canon they go for.

We could easily have Adolini the pirate, and Adolini whatever he is if he's in Prey.

Introducing a different flintlock trophy into the Predator film franchise and it not being THE flintlock, is not a good idea in my opinion... and would cause more unnecessary general confusion than I'm willing to endure.

I'm surprised that some people think the opposite. Its a short but very well done story that doesn't overstay its welcome and its a nice mini background story to Greyback's possession of the pistol. That alone is why so many people love it. Plus, seeing how retconning is done these days, I don't trust the producers to do it correctly and perhaps ruin this too. Just keep some things left alone, not everything like Greyback or the 1718 story has to be shoehorned in. That path rarely works on any media ever.

Predator fans 100% know it exists, rarely have I seen forums not discuss this not once and not to mention all those views on the various video essays on it. General audience don't know but its not even a factor as its a neutral variable that can work in favor for the Predator fans. Alas, even with this particular expanded media was due to closely following what the brothers' mentioned for the pistol's origin in the behind the scenes of P2, it is still expanded media. It just factors down to if the film's take on the pistol is worse then the comic's. When expanded media is better than the films, then you know you f**ked up badly. I just hope they don't f**k up on this part at all.

Many streaming films don't advertise until a few weeks ahead these days. Long advertising campaigns are expensive and the high volume of content output means people have fairly short attention spans when it comes to what's coming out when.

I'd bet we might not see anything until as close as 8 weeks from release. Could be more, but even theatrical films are using short pre-release ad periods these days

So perhaps Skulls mirrors Kratos and his son Atreus in "God of War", where the father teaches his son to hunt, in a quest to honor his mother's dying wish to spread her ashes on the highest mountain.

(https://respawnfirst.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/1542626908_619314_1542627085_noticia_normal-scaled.jpg)

But who's teaching Amber to hunt? To watch her? To teach her? Could it be a Predator?

(https://static1.moviewebimages.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/article/JDf3l72DNPaakN1fh87sQFLrrqIgM5.jpg)

Probably she accomplishes the one thing no one else has been accomplished among the male hunters, and when she does, it finally pushes her tribe to embrace her as a hunter.

Post by: SuperiorIronman on Jan 26, 2022, 02:49:08 PM
The thing is that the Predator could be training the protagonist to be a hunter which might not be out of the question for them. We have seen them outfit Humans in the comics and tie-in material for Predators. Even Noland was able to use Predator equipment and the Predator killer can be used by Humans even if it's seemingly meant to be used by a Predator. There definitely is some overlap to who can use the technology and skills is what I'm getting at. And given the talk about the Predator 2 pistol it might be that the Predator perceives our hero as a hunting dog. Basically a tool to get what it wants which could lead to the final battle. Less of a fight to the death and more showing her master that she is not a tool, she's as much an equal as it is (y'know, relative to a 500 pound space serial killer).

And that would line up with what we know the protagonists deal to be. She wants to be one of the bois. Nobody will let her and while she gets what she wants out of the dynamic with the Predator, she isn't his equal until she can best him which is what she wants. The Predator obviously wouldn't give two shits and a f**k about who she is so long as she's useful which means the Predator would be filling the role of both Kratos and the final boss.

While I am against a team-up, I don't think its another sled ride of friendship, it's probably more akin to the 2010 classic Predator.
Title: Re: Prey (Skulls) Catch All Thread
Post by: Voodoo Magic on Jan 26, 2022, 03:38:26 PM
While my default position sits at being against a Human & Predator team-up and these films need to be slasher movies, I must admit we have yet to see the team-up done right. Lex & Scar? Nope! Not in my eyes! "The Predator" cut scenes? Yeah, no, truly doubt those camouflaged garbed Predators would result in anything more than a mockery and comedy relief. Royce and the Crucified/Captured Predator? It might have been handled right. Grabbing Royce by the neck after being freed by him was definitely the right idea. Needed more of that. But alas, the story went a different direction.

Humans. Bears. Predators. Sasquatch. Maybe a baby bunny or two. I need to see the angle!!!

I think people are missing a key hint here, both stories include the theme of family.

Kratos and Atreus family struggle of father and son trying to connect to each other while clearly showing they care about each other. In Prey, we are told that Naru and her brother's family struggle of trying to reconnect from a broken connection as her brother believes he no longer needs her and tries to go on his own way. Both stories touch on the theme of family issues creating tension due to each character's own struggles and reasons.

I don't see the Predator having any hand of teaching of anything, but rather like how Balder kept hunting Kratos and Atreus throughout the story, the Predator might do the same for Naru and her brother.

Could be! Where did you get this though:

QuoteIn Prey, we are told that Naru and her brother's family struggle of trying to reconnect from a broken connection as her brother believes he no longer needs her and tries to go on his own way.

Did you get this from the end of the "Taabe" Casting Call?

TAABE Male; 17 years old (seeking 18 to play younger); Comanche. Taabe's name means "Sun", like the star in the sky – which lets you know the tribe's expectations for him – he is being groomed to be a Chief one day. Having relied on the council of his older sister, Kee, his "Patsi" for his entire life. Taabe has just had a taste of success in one of his first big hunts. As he is coming of age and fresh off of his first triumph, he feels that he's now a leader/in charge and no longer needs Kee – which causes the first rift in their very close relationship.

If so, it's hard to tell if that piece of casting call character background is the theme, crux or heart of Prey versus a minor plot point. Perhaps. It would be very cool if it is. Guess we'll see!

Here's the production synopsis again:

"The story will follow Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well defined society and gender norms.  Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader.  As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe.  In the Comanche way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him.  Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not.  A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche.  When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior

Or course, the God Of War influence could be as simple as how it's filmed, or Kratos and the style in which the Predator fights is similar. I'm thinking once the trailer drops we'll know a lot. I wish that wasn't the case. I'd certainly love a minimal trailer, but alas we don't see many of those these days.

We need to know how the Bear/The Revenant factors in here exactly. I bet if we know that, things will start falling into place I think!

Sure, but it also pays to read the room and understand that sometimes people will start to formulate opinions when the speculation is allowed to spiral out of control. They start hating the idea of the film for something that's not confirmed - or they get their hopes up over nothing. Happens all the time.

I could be misreading this but just to put this down into the dirt anyway, please don't get like this. I bring some grounded speculation based on what we have so far from previous sources and you gotta mald about it. Yes I used the casting call info and synopsis from before because at least that is some form of grounded evidence that I can use to draw conclusions from. I don't know how anyone else is getting the idea of the Predator training Naru or anything like it as none of the previous leaks hinted to this and the God of War tweek is very vague about its influence on the film, I'm going with the most likely scenario

I could be misreading this but just to put this down into the dirt anyway, please don't get like this.
Don't worry, I believe that lovely passive aggressive comment was aimed at me.

I mean, he still shouldn't get like this, but it wasn't something you said.

Well its one thing if its passed to me, but yeah its another just not to be like this in general. People can speculate all they want but there is always going to be speculations people will scratch their heads at and address this. Its why we're talking about it right now.

I could be misreading this but just to put this down into the dirt anyway, please don't get like this. I bring some grounded speculation based on what we have so far from previous sources and you gotta mald about it. Yes I used the casting call info and synopsis from before because at least that is some form of grounded evidence that I can use to draw conclusions from. I don't know how anyone else is getting the idea of the Predator training Naru or anything like it as none of the previous leaks hinted to this and the God of War tweek is very vague about its influence on the film, I'm going with the most likely scenario

The need to feel superior comment was towards the pompous quote Kradan was responding to:

Quote from: SiL on Jan 28, 2022, 06:15:25 AM
Shhh, that sounds reasonable and doesn't fit people wildly speculating increasingly unlikely scenarios.

If you read my reply to YOU, I said things like "Guess we'll see!" and "Perhaps. It would be very cool if it is." And a genuine trying to understand where you assessed the film's theme.

Sorry for the confusion!

Right? Or at least the Elder Grayback!

Although I believe the production synopsis said this took place before Europeans encroached their land, we have heard that flintlock backstory will be in Prey rumor from someone who snuck some on-set photos. And we briefly saw an actor listed under "Prey" on IMDB credited as a French Trapper, before it was pulled. We'll see!

I really hope you guys are prepared for the final nail in the coffin of the Predator franchise. They're not even trying to hide the fact that this is a feminist/women can out-do men piece of crap! That's all Hollywood cares about. Dark Fate did wonders for the Terminator franchise (insert sarcasm), didn't it? This will undoubtedly be the worst Predator film of the franchise, and I honestly hope they don't make anymore! If you want a real Predator movie, then stick with the original two, and pretend the others don't exist. I'm not saying "Predators" was bad. On the contrary, I thought it was better than "The Predator", but the way in which Adrien Brody killed the berserker Predator wasn't believable in the slightest, and, if anything, it was simply cartoonish. I hate to be a downer, but you should seriously consider lowering your expectations, because you're just setting yourselves up for disappointment. Long live Dutch Schaefar!

In my opinion, once ADI/KNB designed the preds,and continued to do so after AVP, this fact alone was the final nail in the coffin of the franchise,to me  a good movie with a wrongly designed predator is worthless, not that both AVPs, The Predator and Predators were any good.They all had their moments (the AVP flashback),  or small improvements (Wolf in AVPR), but they were all subpar eventually. I'm starving since Predator 2, but I'm remaining uncompromising.I wish the fanbase was more demanding, not just paying then complaining but complaining first, it's worth a try.

About the feminist trend, I'm not a fan of it, I don't like propaganda, but I will say that I'm not against the strong female type if it is handled correctly , Vasquez is a yes, Ghostbusters (2016) or Terminator 6 is a no, and a myriad of of netflix recent crap.
As of today, there is no way to be sure about how it will handled in Prey, but I understand your mistrust.You'll have to wait until June I guess.

A handful of fans are hopping to see the predator Elder as a younger version of itself in Prey, or maybe for just a cameo, as the story is set in
1716 (Dan Trachtenberg started his work on Prey aka Skulls in 2016, and the story is set 300 years prior).
It would be such a nice touch. There is still some hope.

I watched Dark Fate once at the cinema and once at home. Don't have any desire to re-watch it. Everybody looks kinda miserable and tired in that movie and definetly not in a good way. Whole killing off John Connor, bringing back elderly Sarah Connor, replacing Skynet with another Skynet and John Connor with what's-her-face also have not sat well with me over time. Genesis at least had bonkers plot, some funny moments and I liked guy who played evil robot John Connor hamming it up

Also it royally sucks that's the movie I chose to drag my dad into cinema to watch together on my b-day and I'm gonna forever hold that against the movie :-\

I am still unsure about the Sasquatch thing. In one way, it sounds awesome as hell, how can I refuse such a battle? On the other hand, wouldn't this also open the door to other mythical and supernatural ideas like vampires or werewolves being a thing for the Predator canon since we got beings of myth existing on Earth now? Would that be a good or bad step to take?

Personally, I like the idea of a 30 Days of Night vampires fighting Predators in a comic crossover of sorts, but in an actual film canon? Errrr I don't know about that one chief, feels like it can go bad too easily.

I believe you can have a Bigfoot without inviting mummies, the undead, zombies, werewolves and the like into Predator continuity. The Sasquatch is more reality based than those other creatures, when considering the portion of the world that still believe right now that they exist or did exist, and there has documented encounters between Native Americans and these creatures. It's like believing in UFOs, or the Loch Ness monster. It never gets eyerolls to the degree of believing in Dracula or the Wolfman.

No. It's just confirmed that a large bear costume was used on set, and it's been declared by a producer that "Prey" will be more similar to "The Revenant" than any other Predator movie that preceeded it.

I mean, personally, I agree, as at least not only there are account of various tribes of Sasquatch and not too long ago there was a animal that was like it called gigantopithecus blacki. As for the mainstream audience though, I am not sure they are even aware of the accounts but rather they see it through the lens of cryptozoology and myth like any other tall tale. Yeah, I don't even know the current thoughts of the mainstream on the status of Bigfoot so its all a guess at how they will digest this if there really is a Sasquatch angle on all of this.

Yeah, even Bigfoot in general. I have no idea how well known it is anymore with younger audiences. Back in the day, it was extremely well know. In movies like Harry and the Hendersons, on live-action TV fighting The Incredible Hulk and The Six Million Dollar Man. But young audiences now? Who knows.

There seems to be Sasquatch museums all over the U.S., but an indicator of how mainstream it is anymore... good question.

Not saying you did or didn't, but Disney would need a license to use it, because it would effectively be a crossover.

I don't think he meant it in earnest. Just that it's actually scary unlike the Bigfoot.

Yeah it definitely wasn't in earnest. And I don't see a crusty old guy like Simmons licensing it out to a fricking Predator movie. :laugh:

Then in that case, I hope that after Prey, they make a movie where the Predator starts a hunting season on Earth, when mankind was fighting eldritch monstrosities in the middle ages.

Should Prey do well I'd be all for exploring different eras with Predator. Like off the top of my head, Thor actually is a Predator or maybe the stories about them are exaggerations of survivors. Like perhaps Thor is using Predator equipment and realms are the various preserves he's taken to. I could easily see Odin turning out to be some Elder outfitting his favorite gladiator.

Well if this sword from Hunting Grounds is any indicator of where this Predator went hunting, it could have fought Elderitch monstrosities before during the Hyborian Age  :D

No lie, the sword got me into reading Conan comics and I was just left wondering how did I miss this fine world. Its a perfect place of a Predator crossover

Aye I can definitely imagine the Predator's passage on Earth inspiring ancient mythologies involving humans, gods, and monsters. It's very ancient aliens, I know, but as some often say everything is in the execution... and in the success of Prey as well.  :laugh:

Not far behind is heroic literature reimagined as an anachronistic sci-fi tale, where a monster hunter might have been a Predator, immortalized as a legendary hero through Legend, such as Beowulf for example.

I'm also curious about something set in the future as well, kinda like..

That suggests that the predator's vision is done with an actual camera setup rather than just some CG filter. I think possibly everything after P2 was a computer effect rather than in-camera, right?
Title: Re: Prey (Skulls) Catch All Thread
Post by: Kradan on Feb 19, 2022, 09:04:00 PM
I would think so. AvP went for red-orange palette, Predators and The Predator went back to the blue one, but seemingly forgot to add green

Ironically, as bad as Requiem was, it arguably got the closesr to replicating first two movie heat vision look

I agree, Requiem was good in that regard. It was horrible in The Predator.

Everything after Predators was CG. AvP and AvPR used IR cameras. No film used raw IR footage, it was always heavily processed.

There could be a substancial amount of pred pov scenes, since its the predator species first hunt on earth.
A little bit like how the predator pov was used in the original, when he was observing that scorpio.

Yeah , let's hope they kept those details and sounds effects back again in Prey.Especially the heartbeat.

Requiem's thermal vision was perfect as it's done well to honor the look of the old thermal vision of the classic films but also has an HD quality that I expect of an advanced race of hunters that would need every vital detail of their surroundings that they can get.

Big hairy man hardly tickles the part of me that likes cryptids.

This. It's not even in the top 5 north american cryptids/mythic creatures.

Bro you don't even live in North America so please enlighten as to what the top 5 cryptids are over here. If anything Bigfoot sightings have increased with over 5000 sightings spread across all 50 states in 2020 alone. It is hands down the most well known cryptid on this continent.

That being said I highly doubt that there'll be a Sasquatch in Prey but I wouldn't mind seeing that kind of face off in the EU. Considering "If It Bleeds" had an interesting story with a rougarou (Cajun werewolf) and "Hell and Hot Water" had giant tardigrades there's precedent for these type of hunts.
