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

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.

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.

Seeing this apparel with "Skulls" Kyle is wearing makes me feel more and more that the title may remain legit. Fingers crossed!

I think it's possible they stick with that, and I wouldn't be opposed, but I also took Dan Trachtenberg's post about the title when it was making the rounds to mean that it hasn't been decided upon yet.



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!

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.

I think it'd be a step too far, personally.

Wendigo lore has always interested me. No idea if it's gonna be any good or not but I'm pretty curious about this one given some of the talent involved:

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

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

If I remember correctly, a person becomes a wendigo after eating human flesh.
Would a predator become a wendigo (predigo?) after eating predator flesh?

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.
