Good God am I not digging that mask.

I'll reserve judgement on the rest, but that mask looks f**king goofy.

Digging the bit where it slits the guy's throat, but even from the trailer it doesn't look like they made a whole lot of effort to make the Predator seem tall.

The opening bit with the kid is just bad.

Yeah the design its`too slick , nothing beats P1 and P2 design, don`t get the idea why change the desigs - sure , you can introduce new stuff but also keep the original.

Looks good, just not the P1/P2 stuff .unfortunately

Post by: Xan21 on May 10, 2018, 01:11:43 PM
I didn't like any of it... even Predators 2010 had a more interesting trailer.

The shape of the eye sockets create such weird shadows it makes the mask look super goofy

The thumbnail image is a nice, clear, HD shot of it, though :P We get multiple angles throughout the trailer.

I just think it looks goofy. And the suit as a whole looks like a cosplay design, but that I'll reserve until we see more.

I loved the trailer a lot. The part with the kid didn't bug me at all and the predator looks badass.

Also I spotted Jake Busey and the original Predator mask here.

Nah. It's very easy to tell. That Mask is... off.

The opening stuff with the kid reminds me a tad too much of uh... AVP : R. The ship CGI, the whole vibe. Just... Not a good first impression.


The upgrade, on the whole, looks okay. I honestly didn't get much of a feel for the characters. I was bummed not to see any of Jane in this teaser since he's like... My dude, in all this. Him, and Jake Busey are both MIA.

I don't know, I mean. It looks okay. Generic. On the whole, inoffensive.

At least the wait is over, though.  :)

Well, it's hard to tell how that'll look in the film, since that's an obvious overlit production photo.

The ship remote doesn't sit right with me. I mean, can you image a predator holding that thing and going 'whoosh' 'pew pew' while trying to land his ship? And the fact that the other preds on the ship can't stop the remote control boggles the mind. ???

I was really hyped to wake up this morning and see it, but I'm a bit let down. Yeah, it's just a teaser, but for me it felt "meh" and didn't spark any excitement. Too many humans, they could've had more focus on the preds without actually showing or giving away too much. And I'm still really disdainful of the "hybridization" plotline they're going with. I don't like that mask at all, it looks like a blend of Darth Vader and the Green Goblin. I also agree with whoever said that the predator looks too short, in that last scene where he throws Holbrook against the wall - hard to tell in motion.

It really felt like those low budget straight to dvd/tv sequels. If it's on Predators level, which was a 7/10 I will be pleased.

I stopped expecting much from the movies a long time ago. I think there will a novel for the movie, perhaps that might improve the story.

The eyebrows are off, the skin I don't like it, honestly sound like women.

Most of you hated the movie soon it was announced & nothing would ever change your mind, honesty grown ass men crying over how a predator movie looks or how the bio mask looks how this or that & the kid really need to harden the f**k up.

Wish the trailer showed me more but this pretty much confirmed that Shane Black is giving us Saturday Morning Cartoon Kenner Predator and that is exactly what I was hoping for.

there is a reason why we are so picky we haven't had a good predator movie in ages ( the last really good one was predator 2)

even if i enjoyed predators it's not on the same lvl as 1 and 2
and the avp movie's dosen't count they are to shit.

Eesh. Got a very AvP Requiem vibe from that trailer. Just hoping it was a badly cut trailer. I will still probably see it no matter how shit the trailers are, but between this and the bad word of mouth from the screenings, my excitement for this has dropped significantly.

I thought that Zatoichi vs Predator fan trailer was honestly more exciting.

I wish they would take the approach of the rastafarian Yautja from P1 and 2... where they are very ghostly and playing with their prey... not only fighting but hunting and mimicing their sounds etc. Did the filmmakers just forget what made the first two so great?

Super underwhelmed.

I like it, they finally show how strong and bad ass predator is. Also i think chest is alright, it's the scur or some strange lines on his chest, not the actual muscles. Also this is not from the movie and just a still. Usually the lighting is way off and the camera position in different place.

Looks like they did a good job with the casting. Once Holbrook was hired I watched him for the first time in Narcos. I don't mind him as the lead character, here's hoping his character has some good writing.

They rest of the cast look good together too.

Ehh.

That's pretty much my reaction to the trailer and to what they showed us. Everything feels very plastikey and clunky, not digging the cinematography or the design of the Preds and ship. It's too simplistic. Hopefully, the movie's holding back on some surprises and the movie might be entertaining. I can even appreciate if it goes for some B-movie schlock (knowing Black, it will) but this trailer was put together in a way that doesn't do much for me.
Title: Re: The Predator Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: BigDaddyJohn on May 10, 2018, 02:24:06 PM
God damn it, the trailer is edited in a way to look like the kid's toying with the real predator ship ! It's an EDITING effect people, please ! Is it the first movie trailer you saw in your life ?  :laugh: Common practice for trailers, ya know, makes you think something is happening when it's not exactly happening like that... Remember Adrien Brody and all the laser dots ? Get it now ?

As for the empire picture, hard to tell, i'll have to see it under better circumstances, the design looks okay to me, but i need to see more, other angles, lightings etc... That's what makes the difference at the end of the day...

"there is a reason why we are so picky we haven't had a good predator movie in ages ( the last really good one was predator 2)" totally agree on that point, but isn't a reason at least be happy for some treatment, I am not saying we need to eat shit and be greatful for this, but dammn the last predator movie was 2010, 8 years ago. I am just happy to see predator being bad ass and killing people like he did in first two movies. Also Shane Black is more talanted then Nimrod Antal, Strause brothers and Paul W. S. Anderson(In my opinion of course)

Don't push it.

The trailer really was a mixed bag. I love the attention to finish in the suits for the creature. Really dislike how the kid seems to be the main plot device. Also dislike how Black's almost self aware humor seems to be very much there.

I enjoyed it. Definitely seemed like a bit of an unfinished cut of a teaser IMO, I don't know why it ends where it does. Having worked in this field I assume the studio is doing camouflage of the content because they're nervous about nerds freaking out over Black's humor a la Iron Man 3 - but f**k 'em, he's Shane Black. Hasn't made a bad movie. Go all in, don't try to hide it.

It's a laser pointer. Why does it need to be lined up with their line of sight?

Everyone forgetting ol' Greyback in P2 had his pointer actually mounted on his cannon (which realistically would make a lot more sense anyway).

Like:
The lab setting (very cool scenes could be done here)
The idea of a "survivor" being debriefed after an encounter (finally)
Humans studying the Predator.  Finding out things as they/we go vs. being told the "lore" ala homeworlds, the "story" scene in AVP, Basically the entire Predators movie.  "Studying" the Pred still leaves the mystery intact with a slow leak of new lore.  Much better way to do it. Should have been this the entire time.
Overall it's a good premise. (Whether or not the story told is good-within the premise, is unknown)
Holbrook looks like a possible bad-azz

Don't like:
The Pred(s) shown look like AVP and Predators knockoffs are they just plain used the suits.  Not a fan of literally any of the suite designs after Pred 1, 2 and the AVP2 pred.  Needs to be kept simple.  These superhero suit-looking things are just dumb, along with the "big-headed" Ice age looking masks.  just Dumb.  Keep the sleek, creepy-bug-like design and tweak that. 
Kid activating the ship, flying, crash landing.  Dumb, tacky, easy way out sorta thing.  Lazy writing there.

So because they didn't do it before, they can't have changed their ways 30 years later?

In your mind, do they just keep doing the exact same things over and over, year after year without ever changing their society?

Not to mention the individuals in this film could be a different part of their society who do things differently.

I don't mind the DNA splicing angle, but what makes my eyes roll is whenever a character somehow explicitly knows what the monster/alien is doing and why, and has to lay it out as exposition. Granted it may be more carefully revealed in the movie, but for them to so flatly explain it in this trailer feels like a big reveal that could have been saved for the movie.

I don't want to overreact before a full trailer even comes out but I guess sometimes though you just can't shake a feeling that a movie is going to suck and I've had this vibe since the cast photo came out lol 

If there's going to be multiple Predators that's going to be difficult to get right because they're so strong, taking down just one is hard enough and P1/P2 is all about building up to that moment. Predators got it wrong there and got overzealous with having 3 of them. Great designs and all but when the characters felt less screwed against 3 of them than what Dutch and co were up against 1 then they added nothing. 

Hey I'll give it a chance when it comes out though. I thought Covenant was going to be good and well it certainly wasn't so maybe this can turn out to be fun.

Quote from: skull-splitter on May 10, 2018, 02:38:07 PMLogical. "Let's move from line of sight to line of jaw, because it looks cool and different".

It's a laser pointer. Why does it need to be lined up with their line of sight?

Everyone forgetting ol' Greyback in P2 had his pointer actually mounted on his cannon (which realistically would make a lot more sense anyway).
Greyback didn't wear a mask. If you watch P1 or simply remember: in P1 the laser lines up with line of sight, aims the slaving plasma caster with a slight delay. It follows where you look. Not where your chin is at.

It's not a product of the scanning contrary to what many games made us believe.

Like I said:

Just because they didn't do it before, they can't have changed their ways 30 years later? Or have ulterior motives for doing it now? Or simply be different Predators that do do this whereas the others didn't?

I don't mind the DNA splicing angle, but what makes my eyes roll is whenever a character somehow explicitly knows what the monster/alien is doing and why, and has to lay it out as exposition. Granted it may be more carefully revealed in the movie, but for them to so flatly explain it in this trailer feels like a big reveal that could have been saved for the movie.

I'm sure it's not a completely modern cliche but yeah a lot of movies these days slow everything right down to fit in an exposition scene. Predator 1 and 2 still had explanatory dialogue but it was delivered in reaction to the creature's actions, not from some well thought out hypothesis. 
Jungle Hunter avoids wires, takes bodies and doesn't go after people with guns. Must be using trees and hunting for sport. City Hunter targets Danny and King Willy. Can't be coincidence, it's obviously trailing Harrigan.

 I can't get over the inciting event in plot being the kid unknowingly driving the Predator ship if that's the case. Editing got me messed up there.

Despite Requiem-like setting, we have a dymanic, intriguing cast in line with the franchise at large and not pure b-movie slasher tv putz.

Shuriken is straight up pulled out of AvP down to the design. Whaaaaat.

How would they have the original Predator's bio-mask if only Dutch saw him and he vaporized?

Genuinely do not know what the extent of this hybrid angle is going to be, but the introduction of it is just inviting people to go straight to Jurassic World in the reboot realm.

No hint of any suggested teamups between species which is a relief.

It does look like they used props and costumes from all the recent movies, dug em out of storage.  Probably heavily invested in the Hybrid/(true) Super Pred that they just by-passed any suit design for the "other" preds.  Which sucks cause those were all dumb designs.

The dialogue just reminds me of the Jurassic World when Chris  Pratt was talking to Bryce Dallas Howard about raptors. And DNA splicing confirmed. The problem for me is that DNA is in every part of our bodies so surely a strand of hair is enough. And I know its fiction but genetic splicing working instantly just seems silly for the predators (like face hugger blood growing a full size xeno in minutes over one laying an egg inside a man for a period of time in a more plausible way) But the predator looks cool in action. Wanna see him kill folk in urban locations again.

The trailer is edited in a way that makes you think in a funny way that the kid is driving the ship... It's an editing trick, that's all.

I appreciate what I see, although it looks too "classic". I have nothing against it, but when it comes to Shane Black I want a little more.

And when I see the Trailer, I tell myself that he really wants to sell it as something "classic", while basic perssonage are enough "fart", and here have not lingered too much.

So hurry to see more, in any case I remain impatient. Shane Black knows how to make a film, and then it is in this dialogue that he excels !

So far, I'm honestly okay with this. Yes, the story style is a departure from P1 and 2, but I'm mostly concerned with the execution. If the Predators in this come off as more bad ass and brutal than what we got in Predators 2010 and AVP, I'll be pretty happy.

I can understand all the expectations though. Anyone wanting a repeat of the first two will probably hate this, unfortunately, but so far it looks fun to me. I'm excited for the lab scenes and to see them in a new dynamic: studied, captured, whatever. That all has a lot of potential for me as a fan.

The teaser was a bit underwhelming but on the bright side there was no forced comedy, no awkward lines in my opinion. At this point I've accepted the story we're getting. I'm just hoping for good pacing, brutal action and no severe facepalm moments or terribly corny throwback lines (but there will probably be a few lol).

This trailer was probably edited before the reshoots. Would not be surprised if some shots in here are not in the final movie.

well then it's just like every single movie out there hehe :D

I liked the teaser! Of course I want to see more of the predator, also teaser did feel generic, but it's okay. And mask sometimes looks cool, and sometimes funny, so I am not sure about that. But I do feel good seing predator being bad ass, hope movie going to have a lot of this scenes (It's why I loved Predator 2, they showed him a lot, and he was bad ass!!!). So I would say I am still have high hopes for the movie  ;)
PS. I didn't read the script, but I do think boy was not controling the ship. I may be wrong. Also I don't think they showed upgrade in this trailer, I think it was captured one in the trailer.

IMO, the kid's not 'controlling' the ship; it hints that that's what it "looks like" in the script, IIRC.

But it'll be a homing beacon or something. The kid will activate it by accident and that'll be the plot device to what happens.

Think the set of legs we see drop down will be the upgrade. The "thud"  it made when it landed seemed excessive - like they were trying to emphasise something.

Shuriken is crap. 

The black masks make it look like Pred is going paintballing. Really not a fan.

The trailer does not contradict the script. The script neglects largely what made the first two films great. It conjurs up new lore that does not fit well with the established.

I'm loving the Predator coming down from the ceiling- or whatever- and slicing the guy's throat. Completely hyped.

That was one of my favorite parts. I loved the glimpses of the characters as well, they look great on screen imo. My only gripe right now is the music and not enough of any scene play out with tension. But then this is just the teaser so time was limited.

I adore predator and for me it felt like predator.

This was a one and half minute trailer , it's too early to speculate and for me it did its job , which was to sell it to me.  ;D

A tribal race of intergallactic hunters resort to high texh splicing to stay ahead of the curve? Nice plot twist, but like the hybrid shit in Jurassic World totally unnecessary. It feels like cheap writing, give them a new trick to play with without actual need for it.

well you can turn that around and say sometimes people are desperate to love anything. yes this was a one and a half min trailer but if a teaser like this puts so many people off well then there has to be something to it. and hey if the offical trailer rocks my socks off il be the first to say it. but as of right now im not very hyped.

I just saw the trailer, and I'm excited. I'm still hoping it turns out to be a good movie and doesn't suck, but damn I like the new spin to this one. It isn't a typical hunt. Instead it looks like they're trying to survive after being stranded on Earth, which can make them desperate and unpredictable.

Okay, so now it looks like Fox have calmed down on releasing stuff...

I enjoyed the trailer. I wasn't blown away by it but on the flip-side there's nothing in that has caused me to nerd-rage. I'm especially glad it was actually teaser! No main character deaths spoiled, no plot turns spoilers - just a simple line about the general jist of the film.

I'll still reserve judgement on the whole DNA splicing thing until I see it all pieced together. I don't think you can unequivocally state that it's un-Predator for them to be doing it and they can't have been doing that. I do like that Black and Dekker are being brave and taking a big leap with actually moving the mythology forward. I think the Predator franchise is really versatile and I'm keen to see how someone with Black's pedigree handles it.

I'm glad the trailer didn't show us the Hybrid Predator and I enjoyed that it only showed us a little of the more "standard" design. I like the new mask (it does look a little sharper in angles in the thumbnailed image but you can see it looks less strange in the bit where one of them grabs Holbrook). I really like the colour scheme of the gold/bronze/copper and silver. It would have been nice if everyone had a different one but them all having the same is a non-issue - if we're talking about a bigger scale conflict here, something more like a proper war, it'd be like complaining about standard issue gear.

I liked the comedy between Brown and the other fella. Hopefully they've got the balance right in the finished product. Not enough to really say anything about the actors or the characters but no-one looked out of place to me.

Also the opening is a total ball-drop. The kid isn't controlling the Predator ship. And it's another case of the synopsis and pissing off Predator fans. It's not what you strictly associate with a Predator film and it's a great way to cause more upheaval with a daftly editing part of the trailer.

Eager to see more.

It just can't be done if you know what is comming and filmmakers can bust their a.s of but still it can't be done - so deal with it.

Also i liked the teaser and i will be there opening night no matter what. Jacob Tremblay stuff from the begining is kinda what i don't like to be honest but i think there is more to it... I bet he is not controlling the ship - it's just miss direction

After reading this, it got me thinking. At first it seemed weird but now, if they handle this right, it can be a great addition to the predator mythos. Think about it, they're aliens who are obsessed with hunting the most dangerous game in the universe. We know there are different styles of clans who enjoy hunting in their own ways, striving to make themselves better by learning from how they can improve themselves through their experiences with different game. This can be the introduction to another clan of predators who use gene splicing as their method to improving themselves to be more efficient hunters, similar to how the super predators were said to change their tech and their hunting strategies every time they finished with a hunt.

Iron Man 3 was pretty terrible, but that's because the script was terrible. If The Predator turns out to be on par with Iron Man 3 it's probably time to retire the franchise. There is nothing in Iron Man 3 that comes even close to being in the same league of film-making as the original 2 Predator movies. It was shallow commercial entertainment with little to no subtext. It was fast food entertainment. Garbage for the masses. Just my opinion of course. I expect more from properties like Predator.

I've never seen a Shane Black movie I didn't enjoy the hell out of.

Yeah, same. It's why I'm so keen to see how he handles the material and specifics that sound risky for the series.

Iron Man 3 is the only one I feel that artistically tried anything different. The rest have been vanilla factory processed time wasters.

It also took over a billion.  :)

just because it made alot of money dosen't mean its good :)

It did more than just make a lot of money. It was also rather well enjoyed.  :)

that's cool and all but personal for me i enjoyed iron man 2 more than 3 ( and i know how hated 2 is)
iron man 3 just felt off to me.

Very ture.

But there's also this:

Personally, I really liked Iron Man 3. Would've liked it to be more overtly Shane Black, but at the end of the day it had to remain true to the PG-13 franchise it was a part of. I found it really funny how everyone raged over what he did with The Mandarin.

Has to be the most uninspiring trailer I've watched in a long time, literally nothing happens , but not in a good way , in a "is that it ?" Way.

They'd been better off with some predator sounds and a quick fight scene.
Title: Re: The Predator Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: skull-splitter on May 10, 2018, 05:35:40 PM
What most people didn't like is what he did with the Mandarin and Black pulled his standard trick on the character. IMO it'd have worked better if even that was like a double role and him staying the mandarin for later. The rest of the film is quite OK. I mostly like Black's writing and directing, just seeing the same tricks over and over in terms of quipy dialogue and playing with expectations since Kiss, Kiss.

Monster Squad, only seen it once, but it reduced great monsters to poor characters.

The thing that ticks me off is the DNA splicing which is not needed at all if you ask me and clearly a lot of other fans. I could accept it if it is limited to a certain tribe, and now I'm kind of tempted to actually read the script. But I sort want to have some surprise when I enter the cinema...

I will go, it will be entertaining, it just reduces the Predators we knew to more generic monsters instead of keeping them a little more mysterious. I have little hope this will actually improve the franchise.

A tribal race of intergallactic hunters resort to high texh splicing to stay ahead of the curve? Nice plot twist, but like the hybrid shit in Jurassic World totally unnecessary. It feels like cheap writing, give them a new trick to play with without actual need for it.

Damn you cringe easily  :P

A lot of people hated Iron Man 3 despite it being a fairly decent movie in terms of directing, but of course most of the people don't give a shit about directing and just want their beloved iron man to do this and that... It's cinema first and foremost, predator or not... And Shane Black is good at cinema, i think it matters greatly. But hey i'm wasting my time anyway, like i said too many people don't care about filmmaking. They don't realize they have a good director. And some of them don't seem to understand jack shit about editing a trailer either regarding all the complaints about the kid part and the ship crashing  :laugh:

Iron Man 3 was pretty terrible, but that's because the script was terrible. If The Predator turns out to be on par with Iron Man 3 it's probably time to retire the franchise. There is nothing in Iron Man 3 that comes even close to being in the same league of film-making as the original 2 Predator movies. It was shallow commercial entertainment with little to no subtext. It was fast food entertainment. Garbage for the masses. Just my opinion of course. I expect more from properties like Predator.

Perhaps because it hurt your personal feelings more than just it being "a terrible movie" ?

A "solid, well executed" film that "looked good" doesn't equate to good just because it retold an old story? Again, just because you or I (and I really don't enjoy Avatar) don't like something doesn't make it bad. As with everything these days, the vocal minority thinks it represents the majority and that's just not the case.

Iron Man 3 was a success. Critically, financially and evidently with the movie going audience that could be bothered to sign up and vote on aggregator websites - and it's usually the ones who don't like things that are more willing to go to the effort to tell people how much they dislike something.

Well, I said the same thing about people complaining that The Last Jedi did everything wrong, ranging from having some female leads to breaking Luke's character.

I grew up on the same films but I welcomed the changes they made in that film. They were on the same trajectory as the old films and just extrapolated the thirty year time period. The ones not liking it could be broken down to two options: not liking it because it changed too much and not liking it because it didn't fit their expectations.

That being said, I'm complaining my ass off over this film the same way I complain about Jurassic World's changes without need for it. Just kept it at dinosaurs and I'd be fine. All this hybrid nonsense isn't needed to make the creatures creepier.

That most people liked it and paid money made it make a profit. It did not make it a good film. It was solid, well executed and looked good, but other than that it basically retold Pocahontas.

A "solid, well executed" film that "looked good" doesn't equate to good just because it retold an old story? Again, just because you or I don't like something doesn't make it bad. As with everything these days, the vocal minority thinks it represents the majority and that's just not the case.

Iron Man 3 was a success. Critically, financially and evidently with the movie going audience that could be bothered to sign up and vote on aggregator websites - and it's usually the ones who don't like things that are more willing to go to the effort to tell people how much they dislike something.

That's great that people liked it. I have no issue with that. I didn't care for it at all. My concern is that if The Predator is more like Iron Man 3 than Predator, I'm gonna be rather disappointed. Whereas I have no emotional attachment to Iron Man as a franchise ( still don't understand how it would hurt my personal feelings ), I have great love for Predator. That script leaking was the worst thing that could have happened. I feel like it soured everything regarding this movie. It's just too hard to overlook. Bad script typically = bad movie. Let's hope they fixed what didn't work. Obviously we can't judge the movie until we see it, but the red flags are basically screaming at us. I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

That's fair enough. I'm just saying that your one or two opinions doesn't reflect the actual quality or impressions on the film.

I think it sucks that all these details and the script leaked.

A tribal race of intergallactic hunters resort to high texh splicing to stay ahead of the curve? Nice plot twist, but like the hybrid shit in Jurassic World totally unnecessary. It feels like cheap writing, give them a new trick to play with without actual need for it.

Damn you cringe easily  :P

A lot of people hated Iron Man 3 despite it being a fairly decent movie in terms of directing, but of course most of the people don't give a shit about directing and just want their beloved iron man to do this and that... It's cinema first and foremost, predator or not... And Shane Black is good at cinema, i think it matters greatly. But hey i'm wasting my time anyway, like i said too many people don't care about filmmaking. They don't realize they have a good director. And some of them don't seem to understand jack shit about editing a trailer either regarding all the complaints about the kid part and the ship crashing  :laugh:

Iron Man 3 was pretty terrible, but that's because the script was terrible. If The Predator turns out to be on par with Iron Man 3 it's probably time to retire the franchise. There is nothing in Iron Man 3 that comes even close to being in the same league of film-making as the original 2 Predator movies. It was shallow commercial entertainment with little to no subtext. It was fast food entertainment. Garbage for the masses. Just my opinion of course. I expect more from properties like Predator.

Perhaps because it hurt your personal feelings more than just it being "a terrible movie" ?
Well, I said the same thing about people complaining that The Last Jedi did everything wrong, ranging from having some female leads to breaking Luke's character.

I grew up on the same films but I welcomed the changes they made in that film. They were on the same trajectory as the old films and just extrapolated the thirty year time period. The ones not liking it could be broken down to two options: not liking it because it changed too much and not liking it because it didn't fit their expectations.

That being said, I'm complaining my ass off over this film the same way I complain about Jurassic World's changes without need for it. Just kept it at dinosaurs and I'd be fine. All this hybrid nonsense isn't needed to make the creatures creepier.

Now with Jurassic World, I agree. That was one of the biggest disappointments of all time for me. We finally get a movie that brings an open park...and they focus on a stupid made up hybrid? So much potential just flushed down the toilet.

There are two distinctly different issues here: films being succesful in terms of attracting a large audience and thus being good in this train of logic (pretty sure we can make a huge list of 90's titles that attracted plenty and still could be considered a guilty pleasure, but rarely good film). The other being the train of logic of good films attracting large audience, which has proven to be false.

I mean, I enjoyed Transformers and a few of the sequels, but I wouldn't dare to call them good films or being succesful other than financially.

I think the trailer is good sets the mood without revealing too much. I also dig the new predator look. My only complain is why the music score of the trailer just ignored the predator themes, it felt more like some John Carpenter Halloween mood music. Had they used some kickass score like the previous 2 movies the trailer would have been elevated even more. I just hope Henry Jackman brings in some real bad ass PREDATOR score.

Well, I've had time to digest the trailer now. It goes pretty damn quick so not a lot to go on. I'm not a fan of the premise - it does look extremely similar to AvP Requiem - just without the Xenomorphs. But then again, it appears to be taking the best bits of Requiem and making the film focus on soldiers and the military aspects which I did like. I don't mind the new mask actually.

Yeah their methods were cool but grounded to a point. DNA is the makeup of all living things from plants to humans. Why would fusing their DNA with humans on the go make them bigger or tougher or anything like that?

Very underwhelmed by the trailer. I am very excited for this movie, and this didn't temper my expectations because I didn't dislike any of the footage shown but it was far too short and badly edited. I like the start, and it has this build to something exciting and the "money shot" is the Predator lifting up Holbrook's character? Not exciting at all. I loved the scene where it slits that guys throat, and the shots we got of the military team.

Reminds me of the Venom trailer, this short teaser that shows next to nothing besides a few story points. I bet the next trailer is going to be much better.

Really want this movie to be great. Shane Black has never let me down and I love the ensemble cast he put together. These aren't A Listers so they have the ability to really fill out their respective roles.

The first two movies shown predators were aware of medicine and they had there own methods , it's not a stretch of the imagination that they would be aware of DNA . Predators have always been alien scientists, how else would they get there equipment ? like a nuclear bomb on their wrist for example ?

Yeah their methods were cool but grounded to a point. DNA is the makeup of all living things from plants to humans. Why would fusing their DNA with humans on the go make them bigger or tougher or anything like that?

Maybe they just want to hunt in cooler temps or breathe better in our atmosphere or see a guy covered in mud ;D

End of the day it's all science fiction.

Doesn't look like a film I will like.  Main thing is the cast seem very generic to me.  The visuals aren't that exciting, nothing I haven't seen before.  But I'm not going into negative, it might surprise me.

And I loved Alien Covenant from the first stills and the visuals are amazing in that movie, the cast awesome.  And I know some fans hate that movie.  But I can't get excited for The Predator like I did for Alien Covenant. 

Then again, it's a Predator movie, I don't expect much (no offense to Predator fans).  Maybe some good moments and action beats.

100% spot on.  BR2049 will go down as one of the best ever Sci-Fi sequel films, trailer to the film, was done perfectly.  This trailer looked like cool shots from a cool video game.  Zero emotion.

Learning that not all predators do the splicing, I'm a little more curious. Still not a fan of the generally more generic look, but a little more foregiving. The trailer is a hot mess of impressions and most of it does not sell the story well I imagine.

If I filmed a reaction video of my first time watching the trailer, you'd see a man with a unimpressed look on his face throughout.

There's literally no need for the upgrade in this film, though.

Could've just as easily been a Bad Blood which would have a good 90-odd percent of the doubters on-board from the get go.

The fact that the USP is that there exists a clan/branch/type of Pred who is essentially GM, is just a joke.

Shurikens don't sit right with me either. They cement a link to the AvP realm which will dilute the franchise too much, imo. Appreciate AvP has it's fans, but it shouldn't be canon, IMO, sorry.

Wow, that was actually...worse than I expected. Like AVP, but less serious. Predator: Super 8

Liked the forest environments though. Had they kept things serious, and made the whole film about these guys being stalked through the forest, it would've given it a very original predator and "the grey" feel.

The trailer is supposed to give you a general idea.. watch the teasers for Predator 1 and 2.  The teaser for P1 isn't great, it even has the music from Aliens in it, but it tells you what the film is.

Actually, its evident to me at least, that this is a rather Extensive Re-Imagining of the subject.  Someone with your forum ID ought to know...

Oh we can agree on that lol Jurassic world has nothing to offer me, I personally see nothing cool or particularly interesting about dinosaurs in the first place (that's just my taste). The difference is that their multiple trailers had plenty of footage though.

Post by: The Shuriken on May 10, 2018, 10:47:14 PM
Well I thought the trailer was alright. The normal Predator (s) looked good. I have no issues with the mask.

But once they mentioned the "hybridization" and "upgrading" I lost all interest in the plot. I'm sorry but I can't accept such an idea. These creatures are fine as they are, and opening the door to this whole upgrading crap kills it for me.

At this point all I'm really interested in are the normal Predstors. I hope they have good scenes before they're all inevitably slaughtered in a ridiculously lame "old vs new" brawl match that make them look pathetic.


But it was cool to see the shuriken return, definitely one of my favorite weapons. I hope they use the same sound effect from AVP, but I doubt they well.

Thought after watching on my phone:

It doesn't look bad, but the kid stuff does ring a bit too Iron Man 3. They could have done more to make it feel like a Predator trailer, rather than just having the clicking a few times.

That being said, the production value looks solid, and I'm hopeful this new direction is fun. Hopefully we get a full trailer in a month or so to give us more to judge.

It really does look and feel like somebody introduced the butterfly effect to AVPR, and this is the alternate events if a few minor details were changed.

Or maybe this is what happened to the other ship once the smaller ship detached. I'd half expect the military in this one to be on high alert because Gunnison was just nuked.

Bring it back to South America... introduce some big cloaked predator ship (no not like avp and no knightly bullshit but more like in the original script) The characters get taken with them eventually. First half in the jungle and other half in ship and planet. Would love to see some ancient people somehow half alive on their planet... just discarded not being able to speak or something like that. Places on the planet with lower gravity, bring new stuff with some world building but keep it mysterious. I would even say introduce a female-ish... predator (they must come from somewhere) but I wouldn't want to look like a breasted sporting a metal bikini or something. I could imagine her sitting in some sort of big camouflaged web or something.

First impression: feels like AvP:R all over again. Its still early though and I still have faith in Shane Black but this particular trailer isn't prying me out of my fox boycott.

I don't think the movie will be objectively "bad" but it isn't screaming PREDATOR to me either. I can't even say wasting the kid in the first 5 minutes would sell me on it because AVP:R already did that and managed to fail. Eh, I dunno.

Dunno if easter eggs are meant to be taken so seriously, but if AVP's events are still canon to the Predator universe, maybe it's not too late for AVP 3. Or at least for a proper AVP reboot if The Predator achieves a solid box office performance.

I liked the teaser, but I'm confident that there are many potential scenarios to make a sequel besides suburbia: A Prehistoric setting, any period involving ancient civilizations (like Trojan War), Medieval Japan, Viking Age, The Crusades, Napoleonic Wars, Wild West, World War II,  Middle East Conflicts and any kind of futuristic setting. Or even some kind of anthology film featuring different time periods and places. Also, a hunting party formed by several alien species besides the Yautja species.

As to where they could have gone with this, honestly, the genetic modification stuff aside, they're more or less going exactly where I thought they should have, instead of the "Predators" route.

Predator is our first battle with them. The sequel shows that people are on the look out for Predators. So part 3 should arguably be humans turning the tables on The Predators and turning them into the prey.

Like always the devil is in the details, though. If we get some good likeable characters than the weaknesses in the story can be overlooked.

I'm really not sold on this movie. Autistic children being sent predator packages by FedEx? "Hybridization"? It's looking like the same kind of convoluted scattershot story structure that was so polarizing with Prometheus. Predator at its best is a simple concept that's presented slickly and doesn't require huge amounts of deep intellectual analysis. That's what allows it to draw in casual viewers (very important for box office takings) as well as hardcore fans. Take that simplicity away and...

Predator is our first battle with them. The sequel shows that people are on the look out for Predators. So part 3 should arguably be humans turning the tables on The Predators and turning them into the prey.

Like always the devil is in the details, though. If we get some good likeable characters than the weaknesses in the story can be overlooked.


I agree with that. I was hoping for more character moments in the trailer but at the same time I don't want to have great lines spoiled right off the bat.

Wow, this looks pretty shit. The stuff with the kid fooling with their tech was a real facepalm digging moment. The dialogue and characters all seem reminiscent of AVP Requiem, and the hybridization seems like a retarded idea they're going all in on.

One thing that got my curiosity is the hybridization plot they got going on. Splicing with human DNA? Is it going to be like Hunter Borgia from Predator Concrete Jungle? Why would Preds even splice with us as they are vastly superior to us in every way? Or is it us trying to be spliced with them?

Can't wait to see more.

The mask kinda looks like it's forehead is inflated compared to previous masks. Weird. It doesn't even look like the predator face design has changed, just a weird mask.

Thought after watching on my phone:

It doesn't look bad, but the kid stuff does ring a bit too Iron Man 3. They could have done more to make it feel like a Predator trailer, rather than just having the clicking a few times.

That being said, the production value looks solid, and I'm hopeful this new direction is fun. Hopefully we get a full trailer in a month or so to give us more to judge.


I completely agree with you Ultramorph just based on this first teaser trailer. Great points and I still have to see a little more before I make some better opinions.

Also, I was never too keen on the idea with this kid and the bigger role he maybe plays after first hearing about it. But I never did read any leaked scripts or anything, so I'm willing to run with some of these ideas/plot details I've heard so far. As long as it gives a partially new (positive) direction for the Predator franchise. Also, If the production is done well too and they keep a gritty/scary tone to parts of the film I think this can end up being a decent film that I can be happy with.

I feel the ship crashing on earth is just a lazy rehashed idea from the AVP films, with this Predators tone to the trailer, which I did enjoy Predators well enough. But this new film still looks to have its own style of course, so I'm still excited to see more of it.

But until we see a little more down the road, without having too much ruined about the plot or any spoilers hopefully...I'll keep waiting to have a stronger opinion on certain elements of the film.

The reactions to this teaser have been depressingly negative. Like, it wasn't the greatest trailer of all time. But, the reactions across multiple social platforms has been overwhelming negative from what I saw all day. From Youtube, FaceBook, Twitter, the official PREDATOR app and the forums.

I hope the next trailer pulls a VENOM and has a drastically different effect on people. Well, for the most part anyway.

First thoughts shooting through my brain after seeing this:

-Woah, wasn't expecting the AvP:Requiem vibe :-\ That ain't a good one for me.

-But nice to see that the shuriken and the oneblade-wristgear have been included :)

-Those Predators... look tiny. :(

-The one with the strange mask, is that one female? Looks fairly feminine when shooting the wristblade.

-The cast is bringing solid a-game from (the few things) I see. Looking forward to seeing them interact with each other. May be the first time since predator 2 where I care about the human protagonists.

-still... why... suburbs... looks... so... cheap  ???

In regards to the AVPR vibes the story and setting was the least of that movies problems. The actors, characters, production, music video directors all contributed to the final mess that it was.

I like all the Wolf stuff in AVPR. It's deffo a guilty pleasure of mine. They did a good job with Wolf. Imagine putting just Wolf in The Predator with a top director and what looks like a very well put together cast...

This is only a teaser trailer so I'm not jumping to conclusions but the overall theme of the film seems way off for a predator film. This could be a good thing I guess. If it IS a action/comedy/horror it could turn out like a lethal weapon movie with a predator thrown in, which although quite distant from the roots of this franchise still sounds like a whole bunch of fun.

I'm removing expectations and just going to go in for the lols and hopefully watch a predator throw some hapless tough guys for 5.

Also I'll mention about Wolf - the reason we liked wolf so good is because the narrative of the movie follows him/it somewhat. That simply wouldn't work in a horror movie where the predator is the sole villain, because the suspense is completely lost... however I don't think that is the type of movie this will be.

Shitting on this movie after this little peek is insane, really.

Whats the point of being a fan if you stop yourself about being excited about anything these days?

I agree that the trailer as a whole, is not that great. It's what it is, a teaser. As a fan though, i like it very much because of that, it's refreshing having seen a trailer and not figuring out everything in advance. I'm planning to not watch the full trailer or any other stuff.

This was meant for people to know it's coming, the next one will be money shots and spoilers, and then the bitching about "they show everything in trailers these days" starts again.

And you know why they are in urge to give everything away? Because if a trailer for a movie doesn't knock it out of the f**king park and people get a life changing experience, people won't get their asses to the theater, no matter how good/bad the movie ends up to be.

It looks fun to me, conspiracy theories, lots of action, gore and really cool looking Predators (and they didn't even show the upgrade yet).

That's right, they didn't really give anything away while confirming and in a sense putting to rest some of the speculation. Namely the kid and hybridization.

Still I have to be honest, the pred from the trailer looks like a millennial to me.

You know what, there is one thing that is pissing me off about the trailer. Did the Predator ship have to crash land again? I mean of all the things, really. The last thing that is needed is the same opening to AVPr.

If I didn't know anything about Predator, this would not make me want to watch it. Luckily the story trailers are usually much more interesting and will hopefully show off the fact this isn't a YA sci-fi story with blood, despite what this teaser paints it as.
Title: Re: The Predator Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: Tangakkai on May 11, 2018, 08:51:09 AM
I'm just a bit  underwhelmed from the setting, that's all. I was way more hyped for Predators after the first teaser, than for this.

But again, this teaser made me really look forward to the actors doing their job. We only get a handful of lines, but they are spot on an delivered straight to the point, it's what you want from a shane black movie.


Also: i know predators don't have to be tall, but they should be in my opinion. It is part of what makes them otherworldly and separates them from just being another alien. There's something amazing when you see dutch, a hunk of a guy, being dwarfed by an alien creature. It poses so much more threat, than it already does anyway.

From what i understand, the trailer puts a lot of story elements in false light. I remember reading that the movie doesn't open with the ship crashing in the suburbs à la AvP and that this is actually much later in the story.

For shorts Predators: I really didn't get the feeling at all in the trailer, they also casted people close to 7 feet for them so even if they don't put them on appleboxes it should be fine.

Really intrigued by the EMPIRE pic, he looks massive there.

Oh ok, I was assuming that it takes place later in the story, possibly in a flashback. However, none the less, predator's apparently crash as often as the engineers in Alien do.

The Predator in the teaser does look small though and maybe it's just me but it seems to need some sort of power assist to lift that man off of the ground. At least the sound effect and slight delay makes me think that.

The kid doesn't pilot the thing, either. When he turns it on it activates an autopilot. It crashes on its own. Making it look like he's steering is a trailer embellishment.

Na i think that's just awkward trailer-editing, but my guess is that's all pred muscle lifting the guy up, making the shortness of the pred all the more evident. When you look at the hand, it's nowhere near the size of kevin peter hall.

Jeez, i just realised how much i'm nitpicking the shit out of this :D in the end it either won't be a problem at all and the movie will be fun or it will be the least of my problems with it  ;D

I still have faith and I see nothing damning about the movie.

I'd say that Boyd looks the part as well.

My only small grip is that all the Predator tech has a very.... polished look to it. Not really a problem. There may be a reason for that.

Well it's just a teaser and who knows how old a lot of the footage is. Lots of it may not even appear in the film since they changed a lot in the reshoots. Although I must admit that it appears a some of it takes place in broad daylight. Which come to think of it might not be much of a problem for the predator, especially during Halloween.

It's far too early to speculate, we seen a tiny teaser trailer , I enjoyed it and I really thought I wouldn't. But I think some fans refuse to see change , like it doesn't matter what someone does with the franchise , they will find a reason to moan and slate it , before they have even given it a chance.

I do wonder if there's a hidden alien connection in this film?  It would seem AVP are in the same universe. Don't know how I feel about that , and certainly wasn't expecting it. I do think it's shot well from what I have seen , and the predator designs are ok , again it's quite hard to make out at the moment . But one looked like the clothed predator when it shoots its wrist gun thing. It's like it's wearing sleeves or something. I dunno. 😂

Did anyone also notice predators arm in the APC ? So it would seem to confirm those pictures from yonks ago. We do indeed have friendly predators, again not sure how I feel.

Also last thing , I enjoyed the predator spaceship , good to see they kept the original look of a predator spacecraft.

But all in all nothing offended me , and for what it was I enjoyed the sneak peak , ;D

There's nothing inherently wrong with a kid in the film. He just triggers some fans. It just depends on how he's handled.

I think the leaked scripts genuineness has been thoroughly established for a long time. It's just that it was an old draft. Specifics change over a year of writing. They also change over filming. Then again over editing.

In my opinion they will not show us the other 2 friendly Predators yet (except the shooting photo linked above).

Ironically the best bit of the trailer is the joke in the middle. Maybe the comedy will make this better.
That cheesy line? Kind of hamfisted.

Calling it now, the kid with the blocks defeats the predator, steals his ship, and the final shot is him donning the mask while flying onto a new world to hunt prey.

The trailer itself isnt that bad, I like many, many moments from it. But what I dont like are these little things - All that red colors are a little bit different, its exactly the same like in Terminator Genisys where Arnold's Terminator eyes was more to the tone of pink, light purple, light red. . instead of classic dark red eyes. All these red colors should be much, much darker, it really dont look like all the red tones that we have in previous movies. I hate it, all these red colors creams like tiny little lights! I think its because they changed the way how they created these lights. Also the red "loading" effect on that part that is attached to the Predator gauntlet, when that boy activated it, in one moment we can partialy see even some yellow lights on it, I hate it. The whole design of Predator Spaceship is a little bit different, now we see even the window in the front. I dont know if I like it, but the CGI of the falling Spaceship itself is clearly not finished, it looks weak. Also, there are a lot of references to the Robert Rodrigues's Predators. The way how Predator shot his singular wristblade (from his right arm?) is just one example. References to the AVP are clearly visible on the design of the Spaceship, the front part is similar to the big ship from first AVP, it has similar design as Predator helmet, as I said, from the first AVP. And of course the Shuriken, thats main example. I dont like it, but I love that weapon, so with this I have mixed feelings, I dont like the fact that weapon from AVP are now in solo Predator film, it connect the whole AVP with the rest of the Franchise, I would rather see classic throwing Disc weapon from P2 instead. Predator designs are good, I really like it. But when the Predator holding the human to his neck, in that scene we can see that this Predator has also red lights on his helmet, bellow the eyes, thats weird. I like most of the scenes, when Trevante Rhodes shooting from the mounted gun, he looks Badass, and also! In thag moment behind him. . we can see a some of dead, killed Predator creatures, there are bodies, some green color and a lot of pieces from them. The kid is annoying, at least in the beginning of the trailer. Most of the actors look good. I like the Lab environment, Im glad that they show also classic Predator helmet and plasma cannon behind the glass (where they found it?) And now, Im wonder if that mean that the second helmet on the left side is from different Clan, upgraded Predators or something. I think that this movie will not be that bad after all, but still. . I have fear from Predator "pants" and a lot of other fundamental changes. And these red lights. . oh my, I hate the bright tone of that colors, I hope they change that. Also, it would be interesting to see Predators in daylight, but I hope that it will not ruin the whole aspect of Predator as a character.

As much as I'm not digging the kid's role in this movie, I agree.  Shane Black has a way of handling kids among mature subject matter that is believable.  Even in Long Kiss Goodnight (one of my faves), the daughter - who was more of a liability than an asset - wasn't annoying in the slightest.  He handled her character very well, for someone so young.

If Im thinking right, they found the "old" Helmet and Plasma cannon from first Predator film. In P2 we see that some military personels are searching in the jungle location decimated by the nuclear explosion, they could find that. Classic Predator just throw this equipment to the water, so they could find that stuff.  8) Im judging because that helmet has the same mark damaged from shot in the middle, same like in P1. Also in 1:28 we can see some killed creatures behind Trevante Rhodes.

I'm not sure it's just the thought considering that what we've heard about the upgrade having no armor and obviously as tight-lipped as they have kept this movie I would assume that they're not going to have any pictures whatsoever or live film of the upgrade until the movie possibly, just my opinion because all of the Predators shot where you can see their helmets or even the Predator without armor on throwing the guy in that Empire picture I would think that they are going to keep the upgrade as a surprise as long as they can

Yeah i think they'll carefully keep the upgrade under wraps maybe until the final trailer, perhaps even until the movie release... Regarding the shot you posted though, i think it's the captured pred, matches the script perfectly.

I mean, my initial thoughts are that there is definitely an AVP vibe to it. Looks like it'll definitely be bloody as with the shot of the soldier getting his neck sliced open. I think my biggest gripe is that it looks too "clean" though. And because of that, the costumes feel a little cosplay-ey, especially that last shot. The original Predator was dirty and grimy and felt real.

One thing that got my curiosity is the hybridization plot they got going on. Splicing with human DNA? Is it going to be like Hunter Borgia from Predator Concrete Jungle? Why would Preds even splice with us as they are vastly superior to us in every way? Or is it us trying to be spliced with them?

Can't wait to see more.

Maybe they want to adapt to cooler temps or breathe our atmosphere better?

I can see that. Although calling it hybridization would be a stretch then, rather modification instead since its just little corners of their biology that they would be spit shining.

I disagree with the AVP-R vibes. I remember when that red-band trailer come out a lot of people on here were very stoked. Obviously it didn't turn out very well but I don't think this was a bad trailer footage wise. I didn't have a problem with any footage shown, it was how it was put together and how abrupt it ended.

It was a bad teaser. Did it TEASE the movie? Yes. But there was no added excitement to the movie at all from this teaser for myself. I love the director, writer, cinematographer, and the cast so it would be easy to assume we've got a good movie coming but I've seen recipes like this turn out bad before.. (Gangster Squad).

It's not fair to dismiss a movie completely because of a leaked script years ago that has been changed and seems like the majority haven't even read, and a bad teaser. It's a minute of footage for a most likely 100-120 minute movie. People have the right to be cautious or worried definitely based on heavily reported rumors, leaked set photos, and poorly cut teasers but you shouldn't automatically jump to the "I am not seeing this in theaters" wagon based off of what we have. I am excited and have faith, but I was definitely let down by this teaser.

I think after a full trailer we can judge the tone of the film more, not fully, because Shane Black probably doesn't have control over how the trailers are cut together. It's the marketing company hiring a company to cut a trailer based off footage they have available. Let's be fair everyone.

I agree that I don't dig the more sleek, modernistic look to the armor and loincloth. I'm missing the raw, organic "tribal" feel. I always liked the contrast of that with the advanced weaponry and ships.

And those who claim they won;t even go see it, i will happily pay for your ticket just so you can be proved wrong :) :)

After four years people tend to be on edge. While skeptical from the first viewing, viewing the trailer a couple of times and knowing some of the script, it's almost like they crammed random shots together.

Willing to give it a shot.

Probably helps understanding the trailer, I have it but won't read it till after the release.

But it really took me quite a few viewings to figure out where stuff should take place. Roughly.

Still not sure how I will like the new designs, but if this opens up possibilities of thousands of tribes, I would be happy.

I'm totally down for a predator/human team-up. No, it shouldn't be all kumbaya and palling around, or preds submitting to army leadership or some such nonsense, but there's precedent for them to collaborate with a human if the situation requires it. A tense, wary cooperation done only for mutual benefit could be really cool if they pull it off well.

Post by: Huggs on May 12, 2018, 03:00:10 AM
I can see Predators teaming up with humans in something like AVP, where there is obvious room to do unusual and wild stuff. But for creature specific entries, like Predator movies or Alien movies, I'd rather they maintain a more seldom seen and (pun intended) predatory role. Seeing a predator just jump right into frame during the trailer, straight into the back of the truck and start kicking butt like a bloodthirsty batman just humanizes the creature too much in my opinion.

The reveal of these creatures during the film should be a game changing and awe inspiring sight. Like the first time the creature uncloaks then escapes in the original film, during the trap scene. That was great. But that scene in the truck just felt like a regular character incapacitating a threat. Then the predator at the high school, predators in the daylight shooting at trucks, it's just feels nothing like a predator movie. Where's the mystery? Where's the horror? It's noble to want to continually bring something fresh to the audience, but it is entirely possible to innovate something into failure.

This just feels like AVPR meets A-Team and The Amazing Spiderman.

If Im thinking right, they found the "old" Helmet and Plasma cannon from first Predator film. In P2 we see that some military personels are searching in the jungle location decimated by the nuclear explosion, they could find that. Classic Predator just throw this equipment to the water, so they could find that stuff.  8) Im judging because that helmet has the same mark damaged from shot in the middle, same like in P1. Also in 1:28 we can see some killed creatures behind Trevante Rhodes.

When Gary Busey's character is showing Danny Glover the operation to capture the Predator. We are shown monitors with clean-up crews searching the original Predator's blast site. You can also spot Elpidia Carrillo. The novelisation and script features more of this stuff: the film trimmed a lot of it.

There are 3 'classic' preds and the upgrded pred in this film.

The one which grabs him is, presumably, the 'captured' Pred. It's not 'friendly' per se.

The other 2 classic preds are 'friendly', though. I think that's where the confusion is coming in.

I thought pretty much what most people seem to have thought; it wasn't a great teaser, but I'm still hopeful. It started off fine (I don't mind the kid at the beginning at all) but towards the end when it should have been building up to some sort of cool money shot it just sort of stopped, as if the editor forget he was making a trailer and not a TV spot. But there was still some cool stuff in it.

I loved the shot of the Predator jumping down into the back of the truck and wreaking havoc, even if it was with the poor man's 'way less practical' smart disc (I've never liked the shurikens). :P That's just the sort of thing I've always wanted to see more of in these films, the Predators being a bit more agile and mobile. The ship looks new but has clearly taken some inspiration as far as the general shape of it goes from the P1 scout ship, so that's nice. And the new mask looks fine. It's certainly a distinctive new design. It's not my favourite mask to date, but I don't dislike it either, so no problems there.

I also like the idea of the military/government crossing paths with the Predators on a bigger scale than we saw in Predator 2, so I'm digging that aspect of it. I'm not really a fan of the "upgrading/hybridisation" angle, but so long as they don't try to retcon all the previous films and instead make it clear that it's just something that certain Predators, or a certain tribe/clan etc. go in for then that's ok. One of the things I liked about Predators was it basically had its cake and ate it too. It introduced the Super Predators that had a different look and used different gear and hunting tactics, but they had Classic in there too to make it clear they weren't trying to overwrite any of the stuff that had come before.

I've stayed far away from the leaked script so the only spoilery details I know of it are the ones some people keep mentioning out in the open so I'm not going to go searching for confirmation of any of that stuff one way or another. Certainly some of the things I'd heard, which have now been confirmed in the teaser and official synopsis, gave me cause for concern. But fingers crossed! Just as long as they don't go and release an R-rated trailer like AVP:R and Alien Covenant did in an attempt to say "hey, look! This one's got gore!" :P That would certainly not be a great sign.

People who watch those two are less likely to watch superhero films. The Predator and Iron Man 3 have similar target audiences. It's that simple.

That being said, Iron Man 3 split the fandom right down the middle, mainly because what they did to the Mandarin.

I can't wait to ae what the 10 foot Pred will look like. There needs to be a Predator 5 were Dutch Harrigan Royce and Quinn get captured and put on the Predator home world for the ultimate survival. I think that would be so cool.

Why didn't put from the Director of "The Nice Guys and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" in the trailer as well? I guess they think that people only watch superhero movies these days.
People who watch those two are less likely to watch superhero films. The Predator and Iron Man 3 have similar target audiences. It's that simple.

That being said, Iron Man 3 split the fandom right down the middle, mainly because what they did to the Mandarin.

I doubt its anything to do with target audiences. It reads more like a sales pitch because of the past movies.
Maybe because I'm at the movies a lot, but trailers are usually attached to certain genres. Romcom with romcom, action with action, action with comic book films, art house with art house. It's called being sensible.

Completely disappointed with the trailer(reminds me of AVPR)

Watch the trailer from like the min mark in, do not watch the first half. It's way better that way imo.

I hated the first half of it. Second half loved.

The kid part was the big turn off. Him play landing the ship was dumb and he hit the blocks and the ship happens to hit a mountain,?  yeah idk about that. Seemed silly. Second half, looks decent. Its about what I actually expected. Action looks ok, Characters seemed likable and decent. Loving the new mask and look. I agree with another poster about this Pred maybe a Female? Hard to say, but the mask looks more feminine to me. the nose part by the eyes is more pointy instead of flat and big. It seems to have a lot of detail, like its hard to remember off a quick look especially around the eyes. Could be wrong about it being a female, but has a unique look imo.

Pretty sure he means it will be bigger than this mess of a trailer leads you to believe. And an amalgation of previous entries to bind them together.

That being said, it took me like five viewings to place shots from the trailer in a bigger frame. It really is underselling the film.

I am me, and I decide based on my opinion about the franchise that I have invested interest in since I was five years old.

None of what you said has any relation to what I said. I was talking specifically about the notion of trying to make Predator into an even bigger "event" film series. It was devised as a popcorn franchise. A glossier b-movie experience. The last thing I want to see is Predator turned into The Transformers or something like that.

I was not talking about specific content. I was talking about the bigger concept at work, and furthermore we already know there's some really super dumbass shit going into this movie. Like Predator spiders and DNA meddling and biggerer badderer predators. One of those things has already been tried in the series and bombed hard, and there is nothing in the trailer to indicate that this time will be any different.

I know right. This teaser looks like a less dark and without xenomorphs version of AVP Requiem. So...why not base your new setting on the first AVP? which has a more interesting background anyways. I want a Lost World style story during the conquest of the New World or something like "The Lost City of Z".

And that little "beacon" thing that the Kid use as a toy, it has a bar where we can see even yellow color, I hate that. It will be better if that will be filled only with darker red color. Since when the Predators aply yellow colors into their style? Its ugly, Im against it. What do you think guys? Tell me, :-X

That single piece, with its ancient aesthetics, hieroglyphics and trophy room, seemed to promise a whole Predator mythology waiting to be explored in future installments.

Yeah. Unfortunately we will never see the tribal look again, i'm afraid. It's a damn effective and alien looking design and probably the best part of predator 2.

I do agree with your assessment. There was a lot of potential mystery and threads being dropped at the end of Predator 2. It's pretty clear the Thomas Brothers were aiming to widen the scope for the franchise going forward.

Everything about that final scene says; these guys have been all over, and they've been doing it for a long time. There's something in that final gaze between Harrigan and Greyback. Something beyond just shared respect. Much like the skeleton in Alien, it is a peak into the larger universe, and of course the film ends with "Don't worry asshole, you'll get another chance." It's so obvious they were geared up for a third one and wanted as many options as possible.

Predati ..  Predatorz ..... Predatory ....

1. Predators 2 - a sequel to predators

2. AVPR3 (because this looks like AVPR2)

3. Fear the Predator

4. PVC (Predator vs Creeper) "Every 23 years, for 23 days, he gets to hunt".

5. Predator Insertion: Operation Stinkfinger

6. Predator Apocalypse - AKA - The Stalking Dead. What does a predator do, when all his quarry bites the big one?


However, using the past as a guide, I think the predator is about to go down for a long nap after this one.

Alien/Predator = One creature, ten little Indians, dark and trapped.

Aliens/Predator 2 = More characters, more guns, larger environment (L.A. / Hadleys Hope Colony) Multiple Creatures, specimen collection

Alien 3/Predators = Lower number of creatures, group consists primarily of violent individuals, attempts to mimic aspects of the original film

Alien Resurrection/ The Predator = Odd director choice, comedic style, many creatures again, introduction of hybrid creatures.


Therefore, we can deduce that, give or take an AVP or 2, we should expect another predator film no sooner than 5-10 years. In order to maintain freshness, a prequel trilogy will be announced, to be directed by none other than John McTiernan. The predator origins being thus,

"an abandoned astronaut, physically changed by the suns radiation, finds refuge on a barren planet. Creating a perfect and intelligent species in his own image, bound to return to earth and hunt the pathetic humans who wronged him so terribly".

This of course will be received negatively and positively.

I think it will too. I never really thought about how closely these franchises are following each other, at least from a plot standpoint. The movies might be made at different times, but darned if they're not sharing basic experiences. Now that I think about it, Alien 3 and Predators even shared the dog creature idea, and both protagonists landed and woke up on unknown planets. And Resurrection/The Predator feature characters that uniquely understand certain details about the creatures (Ripley 8, Tremblay).

Quote from: Corporal Hicks on May 14, 2018, 09:03:53 AMI don't see why they would. It's not like differing mask designs has ever been an issue with the other films. Nor is it here, really.

Yeah, I don't see why it needs explaining. Predators have always had different-styled masks.

In regards to the masks - Maybe the movie will explain why this clan of Predators use that style.

Honestly should've been that.

This trailer was even better.

The trailer was kind of mediocre, I think. Nothing sepcial, nothing outstanding. But it was okay.

I've been thinking a lot though about the dna hacking stuff. Yea, nothing indicated it, of course, because it's a fresh idea. Also, nothing in cinematic predator experiance has contradicted it before. But the more I'm thinking about it (with a good impementation) the better I understand it.

It might just be a really great addition.

Or it just comes out as a total disaster (like in Predators comic) Only the finished product can prove its woth.

I think nooone can deny there is clearly AVP influences going on here , which would lead me to believe they are set within the time same universe as this film , can anyone answer my question , do you think there will be an alien connection? And if so how could they implement it ?

Perhaps this is why the breaks on alien awakening have been pulled ?  ???

All signs are sounding like they aren't going to be ignoring anything at this point. Pretty sure I read in one of the set visit articles that they will touch on things from AVP even.

There are actually a couple of nice little character moments added that genuinely do add something to the movie if you ask me.

Still not a great film, but I find some of the new scenes far more interesting than the stuff from the theatrical cut.

When I think back to my movie history , AVP might be the most let down Ive ever been with a movie. I was totally buying into Anderson's passion for it and it looked good. Thing is both the start and the end of the movie are acceptable, just the whole middle section is terrible.

I still remember us saying AVPR "can't be any worse" , the memories...

Either that or the third Matrix film.

I actually didn't watch the unrated version until a few months ago and, have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the extras.  Thought they added to the movie overall, though I was fine with AVP to begin with (I know - big point of contention here).  Continues to be a guilty pleasure, despite the ridiculous lore.  Then again, I've always been a huge AVP fan and was grateful for just about any film  :laugh:  My standards are a bit higher for Predators...

That looks terrible, the mouth is agape like he can't close his mouth (the inner mouth, not the mandibles).  I don't know why people think this is better.

Plus it looks nowhere near as good as Winston's Predator, which it is trying to copy.

Post by: SiL on May 17, 2018, 03:52:06 AM
I think all the Predators have looked successively worse since the first movie, which is worrying since the original was a rush job. None of the others ever looked as organic and alive again.

Some think it's nitpicky to go on about things like mandibles, but it's the title freakin' character. If it looks off or looks silly or is distractingly bad, it's going to bring the film down. And not just for fans, but the general audience as well. The idea that there are people who go to a movie called Predator (or whatever variation) and don't pay attention to the look of the thing is ... I don't even know what you'd call it.

I think all the Predators have looked successively worse since the first movie, which is worrying since the original was a rush job. None of the others ever looked as organic and alive again.

Some think it's nitpicky to go on about things like mandibles, but it's the title freakin' character. If it looks off or looks silly or is distractingly bad, it's going to bring the film down. And not just for fans, but the general audience as well. The idea that there are people who go to a movie called Predator (or whatever variation) and don't pay attention to the look of the thing is ... I don't even know what you'd call it.

True, in AVP, AVPR and Predators they all looked awful, i know Winstons was the master of his craft, but it is really THAT difficult to make a decent Predator? It has been more than 20 years from the first one!

The problem is they over do the facial movements which creates that odd flappy mandible effect. The one in the first movie has fairly limited movement but pulled off a ton of emotion with just that. It doesn't need to be all that expressive.

The mandibles were an issue?
Mandibles were stiff and had minimal movement. All preds, had always opened mouth, which was especially noticable on the classic. Many small things, like detaching air hoses to remove the mask, were completely forgotten.

It's really not. I have seen cosplayers pull off more convincing faces than the ADI guys have at this point. That's not hyperbole either, i'm being totally serious.

Those little details are what made the original as compelling as it was. Even if some of it was done on the fly or done to hold the suit together in various ways, those bits of detail gave the thing a sense of reality that later incarnations just seem to ignore.

I was just watching a clip from Tremors. When they kill the first one against that concrete wall. There's that bit where Kevin Bacon finds the tail end of the thing and they have it all dug out. Scenes like that really help to sell the reality of a fictional creature. They're giving the impression of it being an actual living thing.

It's crazy how 31 years later no-one has been able to equal the mandibles as seen on the original. It looks like a real life alien still to this day.

A closed mouth and fully functioning mandibles are the most important parts of what makes the Predator look so real.

I think that's part of what helped with the original creature design. Those guys were young, hungry, and full of passion and panic. The mantra "make it work, make it work, make it work!" Very clearly surrounded them.

Again, just looking at the images there you can see that the eyes, the skin tones/texture, and the shape are all wrong. Not that they have to be identical, but they're wrong in the sense that they don't convey a believable creature. It looks like an animatronic mask.

The original does not. The eyes are probably the worst part. Makes him look like a puppy dog instead of a Predator.

Do they not have the Winston stuff "lying around"?  These are props and costumes and such, ultimately, why not just rebuild or even use those?  Agree, part of the problem has been the toy-pred looking Preds vs. actual creepy/scary looking preds, another aspect that's fallen short in the "after" movies.

Also, being that this is the trailer release thread.  Is this the assumed trailer to be used in DP2?  (asked earlier but the "mandible turn occurred")

 OpenMaw I do love Winston job more than ADI's on the predator. But I really do think people exaggerating theirs statements and also being bias.
  Winston team did everything really fast, they didn't have much time(how you said earlier) and they just improvised all around. It was amazing, but I think the reason why Original Predator looks amazing it's because of the Director John McT did amazing job showing us the creature.
  Director is the main thing, look and Straus brothers, even though Steve Wang worked for them predator it self was still meeeeeeh.
  Also ADI guys did work for Stan and they know how to do prostetics, and know how Winston used to work, so it's not that their skill level is low, but the thing that director can't show it properly.
  I don't like the predator face from avp 2004 I agree with that, but I do think the technology of animatronics is much better, just from logical point of view. Because in original animatronics of the face did man who never did this mandibles before and he told that mandibles weren't perfect there.
"just looking at the images there you can see that the eyes, the skin tones/texture, and the shape are all wrong. Not that they have to be identical, but they're wrong in the sense that they don't convey a believable creature." that is the work of director, even original costums going to look terrible with off lighting and bad camera work. So i do think people being less technical and too opiniated. and it's hard to judge the lighting and camera work from this  promo shots.

I think the problem is that a lot of fans have it in their head that a predator film has to be "this" or "that".

If it doesn't conform to their personal vision of what a predator film has to be, then its garbage.

I think its time for these films to move out of the ten little indians story structure.

I love Shane Black movies. But they are definitely Shane Black films. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and The Nice Guys are great movies. Iron Man 3 is a great Shane Black movie but a bad MCU movie because it was barely connected to the MCU, however it's still a pretty good flick.

Look, we are the hardcore fans of this franchise. Some of us like or even love some of the later bad films of each franchise. A big issue with the sequels is that directors keep trying to throw in homages to the originals and follow the same idea of prior films. Also, back when the AVP movies were being made Fox was notorious for being monsters during production and keeping directors and writers from doing anything that they felt wouldn't appeal to a mass audience.

Now we're with a Fox that has given us films like Logan, Deadpool, Kingsman, The Shape of Water, and the Planet of the Apes trilogy. They aren't perfect, they've made some bad movies recently but they are definitely taking risks on filmmakers now more than they were before. Perhaps a Shane Black Predator movie is exactly what we need to get this franchise back on track. Assuming it's a good movie.

100% wrong. There have been so many bad trailers for great movies and vice versa. People on here were hyped back in the day when we got the first Red Band trailer for AvP: Requiem. Tom Cruise's film, Edge of Tomorrow had a pretty bad marketing campaign and the movie was a sleeper hit. Fans and critics loved it. Zack Snyder released a movie a few years back called Sucker Punch, that trailer is amazing. The movie? Not so much.

Trailers are made my a separate marketing company and directors usually have very little to do with how the trailers come out.

DALLEVALLE to be honest Predator is nothing deep or has a canon. John Mct made amazing thriller, and he knew it was a good pop corn movie, Stephen Hopkins made a good slasher movie, and it wasn't high art or had any meaning behind it. Shane Black making his vision and the main point of it being entertaining( which first two movies aimed for).

There has been nothing to confirm or even give you the thought about a fully CGI Predator. We have yet to see all of the predators that are appearing in the film and there have been numerous interviews with Shane Black and the cast talking about the suits that are being worn by actual people.

I've read it, and yes while that might be something they do for those specific reasons but there are also CGI tricks to modify a physical object, and yes, human actor. See Infinity War or the Lord of the Rings films for examples. However, even if they do MoCap for that character, films like the Planet of the Apes trilogy or the new Star Wars movie show that you can create realistic effects now a days.

Also, back when the AVP movies were being made Fox was notorious for being monsters during production and keeping directors and writers from doing anything that they felt wouldn't appeal to a mass audience.

Now we're with a Fox that has given us films like Logan, Deadpool, Kingsman, The Shape of Water, and the Planet of the Apes trilogy. They aren't perfect, they've made some bad movies recently but they are definitely taking risks on filmmakers now more than they were before. Perhaps a Shane Black Predator movie is exactly what we need to get this franchise back on track. Assuming it's a good movie.

i agree with some of this but when you say *getting the franchise back on track* i cant see that now when they changed the rules for the preds (hunting for dna) that to me is fare fare from getting back on track. and we get a super cgi predator a mega predator that is ripped right out of resident evil ( huge licker) it just sounds stupid to me.

There has been nothing to confirm or even give you the thought about a fully CGI Predator. We have yet to see all of the predators that are appearing in the film and there have been numerous interviews with Shane Black and the cast talking about the suits that are being worn by actual people.

We'll definitely have 3 preds suits in the movie, it's confirmed by various interviews released recently, but for a fourth pred it will probably be motion capture/CGI, because, well... I don't know if you read the script or how much you know of it, so i don't want to spoil it  ;)

I've read it, and yes while that might be something they do for those specific reasons but there are also CGI tricks to modify a physical object, and yes, human actor. See Infinity War or the Lord of the Rings films for examples. However, even if they do MoCap for that character, films like the Planet of the Apes trilogy or the new Star Wars movie show that you can create realistic effects now a days.

Yeah i think mo cap could be really cool for the upgrade pred.

they should have brought back John McTiernan for this one.

It's a better argument to be hopeful about the film than when we had two first time directors doing AvP: R and the guy who directed Resident Evil and Soldier for the first AvP. Doesn't mean the movie can't be bad, because it certainly can be. These days though it's pretty good to grab a talented director and give them a go at bringing a franchise back.

That's the point.  It's not an argument for either side. 

Black's resume doesn't "establish" him as a top dog Director in Hollywood.  Therefore using that to determine "it will be good" is false.
And Black's resume doesn't mean he won't make a good film either.  McT was a pup when he made Predator.  It's a falsehood argument on both sides.

I think Shane Black being brought on was definitely a big plus and it excited people. He has directed 3 films that were critical successes regardless of what you personally think of them, the critics generally gave his movies positive reviews. I think there is definitely an argument to be made that we have a better shot at getting a good movie than a bad one based off of his talent. He has done smaller action/comedies and one big budget action/comedy to a great deal of success critically.

Had he directed 3 bad movies that were universally panned by critics and fans people would have great reason to be worried. People are worried because of a leaked script from a few years back and a poorly edited trailer. The script is a valid reason to be worried, but that script has since then been re-written numerous times.

Shane Black making this movie with the cast he has is what keeps me positive. However, a good director and cast does not guarantee a good film. However, I think there is a little more on the plus side here.

What I see is different type of people. One side is optimistic and positive and desides to hope for better, and being hyped. And the other side is being pisimistic and negative, and deside to "hate" on it, or just don't put too much hope for it. I am not judging somebody and calling them pesimistic is not a bad thing, but i think it's the case of the situation.
I do find that I am not to confident in this movie, but I do hope that this movie going to be good. While other side immediately putting it in the garbage.

That leaked script had some bonkers stuff in there. Some bad dialogue. I pray that they fixed those things as the years have gone on. I think regardless though, this movie is going to have a lot of different idea brought to the Predator lore. Some of it will piss people off, whether it works in the film or not.

We got a bad teaser. No way around it. They had a shot to hype up all of the negative feedback that has been on the internet about the leaked plot points and set photos and instead they released that poorly edited teaser which did nothing for a lot of people. Some of the more extreme members on this forum are now saying this movie is doomed because of 90 seconds of footage.

The movie hasn't exactly done a lot for itself to give people hope. I'll say that. The talent on board is what I cling on to but that isn't always enough for everyone. We as fans are allowed to be concerned for a new movie in the franchise. We should just try to be fair about it though.

  I personaly don't prase nothing, again not saying this movie going to be amazing, I just choose to wait and see before throwing "Concers" about creators, directors, screnwriters, make up artist and say that they don't know sh...t, or they don't know what they are doing.
  Again we do have lazzy directors, or silly producers, or silly directors who do make weak movies, but in my personal opinion Shane not one of them. 
  Different type of concerning, I am concerned too about that DNA stuff, the predators dog, the predator spider, the super predator, and the desing of the predator. But I choose to be patient and don't throw my overconfident thoughts about the project before I see the final product.

  To be honset if not for the direction of John McT I think the original movie would be much much weaker. John Mct pulled the B-movie script to a classic level. Of course the help of Alan Silvestry's music, Sten Winston's team, and Arnold was part of the sucsess, but without  John McTiernan movie would have bean much less quality.

So there we had a pretty standard premise which was pulled off by the Direction. I am nost saying Shane can 100 % pull of his crazy script, but again I will wait for the Premiere.

Do they not have the Winston stuff "lying around"?  These are props and costumes and such, ultimately, why not just rebuild or even use those?  Agree, part of the problem has been the toy-pred looking Preds vs. actual creepy/scary looking preds, another aspect that's fallen short in the "after" movies.

Also, being that this is the trailer release thread.  Is this the assumed trailer to be used in DP2?  (asked earlier but the "mandible turn occurred")

Depending on what the costumes are made of, they could fall apart over time. And Winston downsized in the early 2000s, and sold off a lot of the molds.

OpenMaw I do love Winston job more than ADI's on the predator. But I really do think people exaggerating theirs statements and also being bias.
  Winston team did everything really fast, they didn't have much time(how you said earlier) and they just improvised all around. It was amazing, but I think the reason why Original Predator looks amazing it's because of the Director John McT did amazing job showing us the creature.
  Director is the main thing, look and Straus brothers, even though Steve Wang worked for them predator it self was still meeeeeeh.
  Also ADI guys did work for Stan and they know how to do prostetics, and know how Winston used to work, so it's not that their skill level is low, but the thing that director can't show it properly.
  I don't like the predator face from avp 2004 I agree with that, but I do think the technology of animatronics is much better, just from logical point of view. Because in original animatronics of the face did man who never did this mandibles before and he told that mandibles weren't perfect there.
"just looking at the images there you can see that the eyes, the skin tones/texture, and the shape are all wrong. Not that they have to be identical, but they're wrong in the sense that they don't convey a believable creature." that is the work of director, even original costums going to look terrible with off lighting and bad camera work. So i do think people being less technical and too opiniated. and it's hard to judge the lighting and camera work from this  promo shots.

The original costume even holds up in broad daylight in the test footage shot before they took it out to the marsh. It's not just that Mcternian was a good director. Winston's team simply did a better job. Not just once, either. The effects in Predator 2 are also uperior ot anything ADI or KnB did with the Predator. KnB were over all much closer to Winston, but they f*cked the smaller details.

Yes, a good director can make a poor looking creature or costume look good with the right lighting, but a great team of talented artists can make a great creature suit. The Winston guys did better.

I hate to re-drop the chef analogy. It doesn't matter how good the chef is, if you give them rotten eggs and moldy cheese they will not give you a world class omelette.

Granted, they have some solid talent on board, and hopefully they can improvise out of the bad jokes and give us some better stuff.

There are still fundamentally terrible ideas at the core of the story, and there's just no way around that without completely excising them completely. I only hope that the "upgrade" ditches some of the shit described in the script, and that the

I agree. Like I have said in past posts, the team brought on board is a good sign for me but that doesn't mean the movie will be good. There are plenty of examples of a great team on board bringing a bad movie. Hell, Spielberg has a bad day in the office. I just choose to not shit all over a movie months before release. A movie can change drastically from a first draft to the final product. I read the leaked EARLY draft as well, there are things that I didn't like about it. Quite a few. I bet that the script they shot with is a much different script then the one some people have read. The teaser looks like the basic core story is still there from the script, hell even some dialogue was still there, but It's not fair to judge the movie so harshly just yet.

To each their own though, I'm an optimist. It doesn't always work out for me though.

   For me it's a little bit too simplistic view of the situation. I am myself kind of in industry of visual effects (even so I am not in the prostetic department), and I am trying not to critisize effects without knowing the actual details. Logicly it's imposible to make  worse practical effects now then in 1987 specially with the guys who worked for Stan in 1985 for Aliens, tools get better, more expirience and time to create new methods.
Now saying that Original Predator looks good on a day light on the BtS video is a little bit off. The quality of the video is not so well, and I am sure if you put new suites next to them they will look the same or even better.
   
   Now design wise, that's very subjective. My favourite is the city hunter, after goes original, and I am not fan of any other designs, but that's just taste. Face, oh man I really hated the AVP 2004 face, but I guess the reason was because they aimed to make predator look a little bit more friendly.
 
   So my point is that desing is very subjective thing, but quality of production is the same.

Logically it's entirely possible to do worse, because the ultimate test of an effect is whether it's believable and achieves its goal. It has nothing to do with the techniques or technology that go into it.

Even the second Predator is a step down in quality. The closeup face had googly eyes and the mandibles on the head Kevin Peter Hall wore were stiff and twitchy. It was undoubtedly more sophisticated than the original, but it wasn't as effective.

  The second one was amazing. The closeup face was a fully animatronic puppet, they didn't have fully animatronic head in the first one. They had more time and put much more details on the costume. Animation wise maybe I can agree that sometimes mandibles felt not so organic, but I need to check it again.
  It has to do with technology, of course we have talantes who can make a high art out of garbage, but in ADI they have trained professionals who has much better tools then 30 years ago(I am speculating but still). Also different castumes can be same  level of production and believability but the way ot shot is what affects it in the end. Give Straus brothers original castume of the Predator and they would still make a bad movie and costume will look fake. Give John Mct costume of AVP 2004, and I am sure he can make it look much more awesome.

Based on what? I don't follow how you think how that works. As much as I hate the Newborn, it's a clearly superior piece of work than what ADI did in Harbinger Down.

Just because technology has improved does not mean the outcome is inherently better. If anything I think the emphasis on adding expression was a detriment to the creature's design and that less is sometimes more. The focus on KPH's body language, and the use of a few subtle facial movents lent to a far better design than trying to stuff the head with dozens of mechanisms to give the face more expression. Expression which gave the creature a more cartoon, over the top, appearance. You couple that with the ADI guys not following on from the work laid down in the first two Predator films, and clearly using different materials for the actual construction of the suits, it all adds up to something that is inferior in nearly ever way.

The Strause Brothers and Daniel Pearl did a great job of filming Wolf. The difference McTiernan would give to Scar is that he wouldn't tell the crew to try to make it look "heroic" and would put the slime back on it. That goes much further than the latex and animatronics used to make it.

Logically it's entirely possible to do worse, because the ultimate test of an effect is whether it's believable and achieves its goal. It has nothing to do with the techniques or technology that go into it.

Even the second Predator is a step down in quality. The closeup face had googly eyes and the mandibles on the head Kevin Peter Hall wore were stiff and twitchy. It was undoubtedly more sophisticated than the original, but it wasn't as effective.

Indeed.


Oh sir, the first costume looks like rubber too in the BtS video. Harbinger Down is a very low budget movie.
   I am not aiming for defending the AvP desing at all. I love second and first predator, everything about that, directing, make up, acting, MUSIC. And it always will be superior then other movies for me. But I do think that fans being very subjective on the production matter. Desing too, my favourite is the tribal desing of lost tribe. But I do get that it's my opinion. It's no right or wrong things about desings, because it's art. Now we can of course talk about "canon" and what made original good, but it's a long conversation.

The closeup face was a fully animatronic puppet, they didn't have fully animatronic head in the first one.
Yeah, and it looked worse. The eyes are cartoonish. They don't look real at all.

QuoteGive Straus brothers original castume of the Predator and they would still make a bad movie and costume will look fake. Give John Mct costume of AVP 2004, and I am sure he can make it look much more awesome.
The Strause Brothers and Daniel Pearl did a great job of filming Wolf. The difference McTiernan would give to Scar is that he wouldn't tell the crew to try to make it look "heroic" and would put the slime back on it. That goes much further than the latex and animatronics used to make it.

Agree that it looked cartoony(but I loved it), and I think that it's fault of the Stephen Hopkins for shooting it like this. Again my point is that team can put same amaunt of work or even more, but in the end it depends from the director to show it. (Of course I can be wrong, because it's a lot of guessing)

Questionable about Wolf. Never liked the desing, nor the predator himself. But agree with the need of slime on the Scar. Man it would help a lot.

That's how it was designed to be filmed, but. It was made specifically for the big closeups of the face.

I am sure Director or screenwriters could have avoided that shot, or do it differently with the animatronic mask on Kevin, like in the first movie, but they didn't. Therefore team was asked to make the animatronic face.(Just my guess)

They wanted the animatronic face to get more detail in the closeups, but it just didn't work well. The head that Kevin wore has very twitchy mandibles that almost look broken (the mechanism, not the mandibles) in some shots.

What I tried to say earlier in the post, that production quality is the same or even better, later you used the example of cartoony animatronic face. To which I said that yeh it looks cartoony but the first one didn't even have, or needed, so this comparising is not valid. Because if first one had the fully animatronic puppet then we can claim that production quality of the first one is better than the second. Now second point was made that when they noticed that puppet looked cartoony, director could reshoot with the mask, or not make a such a close up. Where I puting responsibility on the director (Even though I love these close ups)   ;)
  Now the animation mechanics are twitchy I agree with that. Not sure whose responsibility is that, puppeteer, or mechanics themselves.

The point I was making was that more sophisticated techniques doesn't mean it's better. When it comes to special effects if it doesn't work, then it's worse. One movie could have a hand puppet and the other the most high-tech animatronic you've ever seen. If the hand puppet looks more convincing, then the animatronic isn't better.

As Stan Winston himself said, a guy in a suit is just a technology to create an effect like any other. It's low-tech to be sure, but if it works, that doesn't matter. All that matters is the result.

I get what you are saying, and you have a point, we are going through the loops on this debate. What I am saying if take Stan Winston of 1980 and bring him to 2020 he would make much better effects (Generalising, and exception do happenes, but I am talking about percentage).
Also the main point of my debate was , that the final look of believability going to be also in the hands of director. Not expirineced director(not talking about McT) wouldn't be able to pull of hand puppet and high tech animatronics not going to help. But the expirineced director going to make even a socks the monster of nightmares (exaggeration)

Now my original point was that production of prostetics and special effects not getting worse, and in general getting better( if you don't like my quote "Impossible" I am taking it back) and generally people don't like Design (which is very subjective) or the way it looks fake (because of direction, not the castume its self) ;)
Title: Re: The Predator Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: SiL on May 18, 2018, 01:52:41 AM
Everyone agrees the techniques and technologies are getting better, but they're not being used to create realistic effects.

The direction can only do so much. Hopkins created some beautiful shots of the Predator, but the closeup mask was goofy looking and the wide shot head mask didn't move properly. Those were effects problems outside of Hopkins' control. How could his direction fix a broken effect?

In Predators they did an OK job of recreating the original Predator in their sculpt of the "Classic Predator", but the movement it had was limp and unconvincing. Again, not much the director could do if the effect he's given to work with isn't done well to begin with.

Bad direction has veeeery little to do with what people don't like about Predators lately. Except for AvP, because it was Paul Anderson specifically asking for "heroic" looking Predators that basically screwed everything up on that one :P

Oh man I am getting lazy ;D
Okay I love the second movoe and don't want nothing to be changed, but just for the sake of debate, isnt job of director problem solving, if scene doesnt work well find a way to show not perfect effect in better way or dont show it at all? The twichy mandibles on the mask i agree Winston team did messed up there, I cant defened them. But the puppet face could have been avoided or shot diffeferently(i am not sure about the last). Therefore if we didnt see the puppet face, we would have same effect as the original movie except for the twiching mandibles.
  I can't defend Predators because I didn't watch it enough to debate about it.
  I think direction and design is the main problems for the fans. I am really not fan of every new design they got for the last 30 years, but I do think if movies were really good,we would start growing to like new designs, or at least enjoy thrill or action with our favourite alien hunter. But until then we didn't have much to enjoy therefore we getting even angry on the costumes, which in my thoughts are well crafted.

Maybe it's just me but I can't imagine Stan Winston's original design in place of Scar's design. For better or worse, the predator design that they used fit the style and tone of AVP more than the original would have... though that isn't exactly saying much for the movie itself seeing as it's pretty mediocre even though it's one of Anderson's stronger movies.

Somebody mentioned increasing emphasis on facial expressions earlier, and I think that is one of the fault points in the suit development going forward.  The classic predator was more about body language.  I liked that original concept.  It fits with the character, rather than the bells and whistles that go with giving them human-like facial expressions.  Giving them human characteristics like that kind of makes them less interesting IMO.  Less facial expressions, more body language keeps that air of mystery about them.  Sticking with that original concept would make all these janky mandible features a moot point.

The original actually has an incredibly expressive face, particularly the eyebrows. That brow lift when he spots the spikes in Dutch's trap is golden, or the slight scowl when it roars at Dutch after taking off its mask. It's just that the expressions are subtle and realistic, not cartoonishly exaggerated like Predator 2 or AvP, or stiff like Predators and AvPR.

I think that's the issue with basically all of the faces since the original. Look at the eyebrows: they either skyrocket up the forehead like a Looney Tunes character or are fixed in place. Gotta get that balance.

The original predator didn't have to express as much.  You're probably reading too much into it, Sil.  Most of the expression came from Kevin Peter Hall.

No, he isn't.

Just watching the BTS footage of the head mechanisms being designed by ADI you can see they were pushing those flexers to extremes, and for testing the mechanism that's fine, but they actually did it in both AVP and AVPR. A slight rise is all you need, a slight tilt.

Jungle Hunter had a lot to express from the time he takes his mask off to the time he dies. There are a lot of subtle cues in there. A lot of it is Kevin Peter Hall and his body language, but a number of the big moments in there are on the face, and what sells it is that it isn't over played. It feels genuine.

Which is the biggest failing of AVP. The tone is wrong. The concept art for the film actually depicted much more classic looking Predators and much more gigeresque Aliens.

Something went horribly wrong from concept to realization.

I don't think he's reading too much into it at all, it's the nail on the head as to what helped make the original design so realistic along with KPH's body language.

It's the eyes that sell it - which is Kevin Peter Hall's real eyes wearing contacts.  The rest of the face is good and I don't want to criticise it.  But they only needed it for a couple shots.  It could move its eyebrows and its mouth.  That's all it needed to do to express the range of emotion needed.

I was excited even after I learned Dutch wasn't returning.
The other thing I'll always remember is the theater crowd's reaction of final scene when all of the Predators showed up after Harrigan had killed the City Hunter.

I dont care for the "tonal" differences between this film and the others.


Comedy and jokes arent a problem per se...
(if the comedy is actually funny.. and it is pretty funny in certain spots)

The script takes its lead characters, their inner lives and the situation
they are in seriously enough that there's still a sense of "the stakes".
... just like other Shane Black films, actually.


The main problem here is that the script is convoluted in the extreme
to the point of the "plot" almost seeming like straight nonsense.
(almost like a transformers michael bay movie in that aspect)

I saw the Predator teaser before my screening of Deadpool 2. We probably won't get a new trailer until mid-July. Possible late June. Depends if they plan to released 1 or 2 more trailers. Fox usually likes to release a decent amount of trailers for their films so we might get two more. I'd imagine they want to release one sooner than later though since the response to this teaser wasn't very positive.

Shit.  Hoping for one around 2.5 min or more.  RSA does masterful trailers, one for Robin Hood was better than the actual film

I would be shocked if the next trailer isn't at least 2 or two and a half minutes long. They're going to definitely need to change the narrative around this movie and show more of the plot as well as some good action beats and introduce the overall tone of the movie.

Yep, the movie is still 4 months away so they have plenty of VFX work to be done still. Plus they just finished up re-shoots/additional photography so that has to be edited and worked on as well. Remember, this movie was filmed with the idea that it would be released in Feb/March of this year. Then it was pushed back.

2.5 minutes is too long for a trailer. Also there were an effects company called Magee effects that had the original moulds of the predator and his recasting of it was spot on, I was going to buy one but they were mighty expensive. They no longer do it now though.

That tells me that it's more by choice rather than ability as to why the faces look different. He had replicated it perfectly, even the eyes.

Makes no sense. They all try so hard to get the original predator look and they either make the mistake of misplacing the mandibles or don't spend enough time to look at the details that sold the effect of the original.

I don't think it's a mistake, it's most likely a combination of choice and lighting. The choice to make the Predator look different and the Directors style when filming. There's even a fan suit you can buy that everyone raves about that's nearly perfect.

It can be replicated, but I guess Hollywood figures we audiences always want something new ( Even the Marvel movies seem to change movie to movie).

Yeah, KnB tried to make "captured" look like the original Predator. Replicating the look. The only thing they really messed up were the mandibles.

ADI was basically told with Wolf to make him closer to the classic Predators, and on the whole they did a good job. Their face design still wasn't up to snuff, but at least that was obscured for the most part in the film.

This is what the mandibles should look like from side profile.  When opened should create a square and the jaw line curves.

Funny when you see toy figures of the super predators where their mouth closes properly, makes you wish it looked like that in the movie.

These creature effect designers also get in trouble when they have the mandibles open too wide when "roaring".

They've only tried to replicate the classic in Predators. All the other movies went for their own style. They nearly got it, but like Sil mentioned I think the movement was off, the mandibles were not quite right.

I see what you're saying and having a 1:1 Predator 1 bust here for reference, but regardless of chosen style they just weren't able to replicate it. In Predator the creature opened his mouth wide just as well, but had no floppy cheeks, ever.

Great episode guys. I agree with what Corporal said. That Predator theme and sound is necessary for Jackman to implement, whereas more musical diversity can accompany the individual Alien films.

Let's hope the final trailer does an amazing job of hyping up both fans and the casual audience alike.

The whole concept of Old Painless is pretty ridiculous and unintentionally funny. I mean, can you REALLY imagine a soldier humping a Chopper mounted weapon, through the mountainous region of the Central American jungle?

It's not a really practical thing for a spec ops soldier to be hauling in terms of weight distribution and ammo consumption. Especially for that aforementioned terrain in which they were operating.

In all seriousness for those who don't know what I mean -

Vietnam-Era Military Verb: To march, walk, hike, or otherwise engage in long distance traveling by foot for the purposes of waging war, moving materials, or bringing the fight to the enemy.

To hump means simply to walk during combat conditions.
We had to hump 8 klicks before sundown and then dig a fox hole before eating chow for the night.

The minigun isn't really that funny. It's ludicrously over the top, but the general reaction is usually "f**k yeah!" rather than people getting torn out of the film splitting their sides with laughter.

It was also something added during production. In the script, Old Painless is an M60 SAW.

It's funny because it's ludacris. I never said it was side splitting comedy. More unintentionally funny because it's ludicrous to think a battery operated, usually helicopter mounted mini gun, would be hauled around as a one man weapon.

Also I disagree that the reactions to that weapon have to be "f**k yeah!". I've watched the film with many different people. The reactions varied, there were some who thought it was both ludicrous (I.e. funny) and cool.

I knew Old Painless was turned into a hand held GE M134 mini gun. I was unaware of the exact weapon it was originally meant to be. Which was it originally? A M60 or a M249 SAW? Mac carries an M60E3, which might have been what Old Painless would've ultimately turned into on screen. Had they not gone with iconic M134.

Post by: SiL on May 21, 2018, 04:48:21 AM
I never said the reaction "has to be", I said it generally is. Most people think it's cool. It's over the top and 80s, but people don't generally burst into laughter and get sucked out of the film by the sight of it. I'm not saying nobody does, just it's not what you normally see watching the film with people.

EDIT

Painless was scripted to be the M60 that Mac carries.

I agree,

Also, I didn't mean to say 'has to be'. My point was more that individual viewer reactions vary and weren't as broad as you made it seem. Too clarify my point more. I don't think that, just because some may see Old Painless as ludicrous or unintentionally funny, they're automatically "sucked out of the film" from that point on.

I was just pointing out some point in the original film that could be seen as unintentionally funny. I don't think it makes or breaks the film by its mere existence.

I don't think you can include the jokes either. The jokes are not just meant to be funny to the audience, in fact I'd say that's not even the primary goal of the jokes. It's to show not only the different type of soldier, but also the relationship between Hawkins and Billy. Then you get the pay off when Billy actually likes one.

It's called character building, it also makes us feel more sorry for Hawkins when he gets diced up.

There's also the tonal balance of the film. It's a big bad ass 80's action shooter, so it works and it kinda still works in movies like the expendables ( although they go to far with it IMO).

It's also not that far from reality.

They were playing with the idea of a man portable version of the minigun IRL. That's where the idea came from in the first place. The problems with doing so are obvious.

Though we do actually have a proper portable "suit case size" minigun now.

The point is that the first Predator film did not make goofy comedy takes. It has some funny one liners and a couple jokes, but it stays well clear of falling into farce. It's all about injecting levity into a tense scenario.

Yeah I agree, It's not a funny film, it just has some light comedy injected into it.

The way Black describes this though, feels more in line with the Marvel movies. If everyone of the cast is firing off one liners it's going to remove that tension. Also I'm praying for no actual joke involving the Predator directly, the kind of stuff I'm talking about is

Predator says something in clicks
Boy - Translates 
Soldier says something
Predator says something
Boy - Translates the joke.

Slowly rocking in corner at the prospect.

It's still very much out of the realm of possibility. They tried mounting the M134 onto the Humvee and couldn't. So the likelihood of seeing a man portable version in reality is still a ways away. Not too mention ludicrous seeing one man using it as if it were possible or practical.

I can't speak to if the Pentagon was thinking about developing a portable handheld M134 in the 80's. But, I'm pretty confident in saying that was not the reason for it's inclusion in the first film. However, I'm open to being corrected.

However, Old Painless is very much the product of its time. Totally 80's machismo to the nth degree.

I don't want anyone to think I dislike Painless. I love it. Just something I figured could be argued as an unintentionally funny aspect that could be found in P1.

I saw Predator in a packed cinema just a while back, and the place roared with laughter whenever that thing was fired on-screen.

Other big belly-laughs I can remember off the top of my head included Dutch and Dillon's "handshake", most of the shootout in the jungle camp, Dillon stripping off and joining in with the sweaty muscle tree-hauling and Dutch screaming into the jungle to get ol' Pred's attention.

You guys remember the mini gun carried a "purpose" for the movie, it was used in a specific scene to create a scenario that really turned the tide (ultimately created more build) in the movie for the audience and the team, that what they were dealing with wasn't normal.

It seems at this point "humor" is an opinion based on over-analytical pickiness towards meaningless aspects of film.

Good news is Black as confirmed in "Collider" that the humor won't be too much as it's not meant to be a "comedy" of any sort:

"I think the reason there's a lasting quality that the original movie has that's due I think, in part to the fact that it was made before it was so easy to just do a bunch of CGI effects and before video games had taken hold as well. So, there was a more visceral kind of war movie thriller-esque quality to the material.

It [The Predator] is ultimately gonna be a thriller. It's not gonna be a comedy. It's an R-rated movie and it's supposed to be a kind of harrowing experience. I think it goes to what Fred and I are very familiar with, which is, if you told me to write a comedy I'd be helpless, but if you say write a thriller and put some jokes in it, then fine. Then, I don't have to worry... it's that sort of combination and tone shuffling that becomes at once the juggling act and also the challenge, but the joy too of what we're trying to do."

Quote from: SiL on May 21, 2018, 04:08:36 AMThe minigun isn't really that funny. It's ludicrously over the top, but the general reaction is usually "f**k yeah!" rather than people getting torn out of the film splitting their sides with laughter.

I saw Predator in a packed cinema just a while back, and the place roared with laughter whenever that thing was fired on-screen.

Other big belly-laughs I can remember off the top of my head included Dutch and Dillon's "handshake", most of the shootout in the jungle camp, Dillon stripping off and joining in with the sweaty muscle tree-hauling and Dutch screaming into the jungle to get ol' Pred's attention.

Right- so 30 some years later....you can look back and see the "funny" aspects of the 80's machismo playing out (as with most movies in that era).  At the time tho, AND upon very first watch, wasn't the case at all. 

So your statement actually has some severe flaw in it.

I can't speak to if the Pentagon was thinking about developing a portable handheld M134 in the 80's. But, I'm pretty confident in saying that was not the reason for it's inclusion in the first film. However, I'm open to being corrected.

Maybe not the M134, but they were very interested in turning the minigun concept into a portable platform. I do remember them mentioning this only briefly in one of the BTS videos for Predator. Jesse Ventura talks about it for a second.

It just never worked out. Trying to shrink things down to make it practical gutted the overwhelming fire power, and besides the amount of fire power was actually... ultimately wasteful.


Though they did eventually, decades later, pull it off with the XM556.





Ol' Painless has a little brother.



Yeah some people laugh at strange things. My reactions when I first saw Predator were "oh shit" to most of those things. The handshake between Dutch and Dillion had me go bug eyed. "Gawd-dam!"

Again watching those movies in the year 2018.  Is a completely different circumstance of study and analysis.

My dad brought my mom to that movie and to this day recalls the entire theatre on edge, could hear a pindrop, along with my mom bruising my dad's arm from squeezing constantly during the film.

I watched 3 minutes of it on tv once, and had to change the channel. It was just too much. As for the modern analysis angle, I think films like Predator would be the main example for this type of thing. Something that was initially meant to be, and was seen as scary or thrilling.

On the whole though, I think ultimately it's gonna come down to what Hicks and Co. said on the Podcast. Execution, Execution, Execution.

If Black can't manage the jokes while juggling the suspense, horror and action. Then it's not gonna be pretty.

On the flip side of that, if he can utilize the jokes in a way that doesn't distract your attention from the film itself. Well, he'll have overcome a very big hurdle, that allot of fans fear he's incapable of.

Post by: MudButt on May 21, 2018, 05:42:30 PM
Yep.

I think people just have to be ready for the basic core of what came from the leaked script/plot leaks/set photos. The bigger issues for me was how insane it got in the third act and a lot of the dialogue. It'll come down to execution for a lot of this. It can only go so far for some people, which can be evidenced by how people have expressed their opinion on here about what we have heard and seen.

Like I have said, I'm going to have faith but I have no problem calling it a bad movie if it turns out to be one.
Title: Re: The Predator Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: Wysps on May 22, 2018, 02:46:20 PM
Wrestling with the basic core of the movie is the hard part.  I can imagine how difficult it'll be to go into the movie with the mindset of giving it the fair shot that it needs (or deserves) when all this time we've been formulating opinions based on what they've provided us, imo.  Hoping that if Shane maintains the original suspense/horror elements and doesn't veer off too deep in the clinical side (which judging by the leaked content I don't know...) then it'll be enough to satisfy the casual movie goer and give us more films in the near future.  That's all I want  :'(

Post by: MudButt on May 30, 2018, 09:13:08 PM
We got our first look at footage from the film on February 9th from DP2, then we got our first full trailer on March 22nd, followed by a final trailer on April 19th. Generally big blockbusters get a teaser and two full trailers, however lately studios like Disney and even Fox have only put out two trailers total, a teaser and a trailer usually. Our first trailer for The Predator which was a TEASER was released on May 10th, it has only been 20 days. So like I said, it's possible we can get one by end of June or early July. It wouldn't make sense to release a full trailer so soon after the teaser. The earliest point would be in time for Jurassic World 2 since that's the next BIG movie, and that releases June 22nd. But my guess would be with Mission Impossible or Ant-Man and the Wasp. Those come out in July which is where I think they'll drop it.

Post by: MudButt on May 30, 2018, 11:15:59 PM
Yes, as well as that Bob Ross video that showed snippets of footage at the end. Deadpool is a marketing anomaly though because part of what makes that franchise is how much they market it and the type of marketing campaign they do for those movies. So it's a much different animal and probably isn't the best comparison for what they may do with The Predator. I think Alien: Covenant is the example to look at.
Title: Re: The Predator Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: SiL on May 31, 2018, 03:20:05 AM
Also keep in mind it costs money to cut trailers. Depending on the film's AD spend they might only make 2-3 trailers total and leave it at that.

Post by: dutch4211 on May 31, 2018, 03:29:27 AM
I'll be honest, I went to see deadpool 2 yesterday and they played the predator trailer. It felt like a lighthearted popcorn movie. All of the trailers they played were terrible except for Mission Impossible which I felt they edited very well. The mission impossible trailer focused on the aspects of what we all know to be the heart of the movie, which is incredible action scenes. The predator trailer was childish and too light hearted for what a predator movie should be. I've read the early script and seen the trailer when it dropped, and seeing it on the big screen gave me a lackluster feeling. I'll still go see the film in theaters for support of the franchise but I have little faith in what this film will provide to the franchise.

Yeah there's not many "ah ha it's Predator" moments. It's sort of just plays like "what's this... Oh it's another Predator film"

The structure of the trailer is quite bad. Actually it might just straight up be the worst trailer between the films of recent time. Not because the movie looks bad, just that nothing really happens.

I like the comment that says "The moment you realise it's not a fanmade trailer". Totally spot on.

Holbrook on his mission. Intense. Scope shots.
Cut to kid at home, with box.
Holbrook searching through scope. Looking for his target. Sonic boom.
Kid slicing box with box cutter.
Ship crashing, Holbrook trying to evade.
Kid peels back flaps.
Holbrook moving through the wreck. Predator clicking sound.
Kid pulls out the mask.

THE PREDATOR.

That's why I loved the Sabacc scene in Solo, a single bug zapper style lightbulb over the table.  Atmosphere was fantastic

Up!
Definitely better than the first trailer. Definitely should have released this one first, or at least something similar with this amount of action rather than have a whole minute of one trailer focus on the kid. In terms of marketing, they really need to realize who their audience is, and for starters, I don't think too much interested in a kid in a Predator movie. I got nothing against a kid being in it, but why advertise him prominently.
On a whole, I still got mix feelings. I do like some of the action, I think it looks interesting, some good shots. I do like the Predator face design. Way better than the Super Predators. Still too clean looking though and that new mask, especially that shot of it up against the original mask, is just really goofy looking. They really overdesigned it. There are so many different custom figures and artwork of Predators with different designs of mask, but are still rather simple looking without it feeling overdesigned too much. I still get a Saturday night movie schlock from this as well, especially with the last shot of the giant Predator slamming the smaller Predator. It's like one of those cheap monster versus movies. It just feels off.

Because aside of Holbrook and Casey,

Rory is basically the main central character.
