The predator masks look very unique, but it's hard to get a good look at the them. But the suits look pretty good to me.

The predators face in the background of the last picture with Adrien Brody and Oleg Taktarov looks pretty good from a distance.

Woo Woo Woo!

So many fears have just turned into dust.

Seriously,I nearly jumped when I got a glimpse of what I though was a Pred suit in a thumbnail.

The Predator suit is back for the first time since 1990.

Well the BSP's look great, I see ther is no trible canons on the pred's shoulders which is good, and the reg pred looks great. Now I just hope the end is better than what was in the script and there is no black blood.

The Pred on the right looks rather chubby in the torso area lol

IMHO with appearance like these he can't have black blood, it would be illogical.  It's seems that they keep canon at all, they use Winston's ideas, so about black blood it could be this same... Forgotten, stupid idea.

Yeah I wasn't sure whether that was him or not, but it does look a lot like Brian Steele. I had no idea he was part of the film.

Probably anywhere from 6'5 to 6'11. Tall enough for a Predator!

But if you look at the back of the pred in the first pic, it doesn't match the backs of the other three in the pic with Robert Rod. So maybe there's another pred??

I figured they were all BSP's but I don't know for sure.

In script there are: 1 BSP and the rest are SP. Who knows how this script looks now. But it seems totally changed. Or almost.

Yeah the guy with the beenie is definitely wearing a predator suit, and it does look like the original body design.

I wonder which one is Derek Mears? Brian Steele is the pred on the left. The armor matches up. But not sure about the others.

Look at his chest. I think that's (only) normal pred from pic with totem.

I think Derek is the one on the right.

Holy crap, the Pred mask in the first pic has tusks! Who else noticed this?

You guys are right, that one suit looks extremely like the original!

What makes you think that predator with the tusks is Derek Mears?
Title: Re: New photos from set (warning, spoilers!)

.....I've got to admit.. They do look good. Especially the normal Predator, who looks EXACTLY like Diablo Predator aka Anytime.

I can definately say... I can rest easier.

I'd say my hopes are up to 70%, I'm still treading lightly though. But I am definately blown away.

30% of my concerns are still there... Lets just hope they don't keep the black blood, Hanzo slicing a SP in half, and the other rediculous things.

I also hope in the sequels, if there are any, they don't change or add unnecessary things to the culture.

I gotta say.. it's now looking good.

Am i the only one who really isn't quite f**king impressed with the Predators??

I'm underwhelmed by the Black super Predators. They actually look like i could wipe the floor with them, they are too small... and i don't know, the overall design isn't impressive to me.


Now to the good stuff:

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg508.imageshack.us%2Fimg508%2F7874%2Fxe6374d01.jpg&hash=a98c5727d8c123f20161e85251c81190e468caf3)

Looks really sweet, but I'm missing the net and a few patches of armour...the design itself looks really good though, very much in spirit with the original.

Post by: Mystic Ninja on Jan 16, 2010, 09:07:05 AM
Following the release of the photos, I can not says I'm that suprised or shocked. I have always had faith in RR and co like any true Predator fan! I may not know the difference between a Yautja or a Hish but I know only a retard bad mouths the look of something based on a draft script without seeing the final product.

Feeling very smug!

It appears that RR have got the looks down to a big f**king T, hopefully the direction is top notch and the performances so we end up with a fantastic movie.

I believe that this could be the only Predator movie, apart from P1, to be both a critical and commersial success.

johnny , for once me and you are on the same page.

These are set pics, so hard to tell, but my initial feeling is they are just not "super" enough. Plus the Proportions of the SP's look a little..... off? 

The totem pred is spot on though.

I'm gonna get labeled a hater or whatever for this, but those Super Preds look ... eh. They don't look imposing or menacing, and their armour looks bland as all get out. It's like they slapped some vacuformed plastic over the suits and called it a day :-\

Are you sure they're black super Predators? My first reaction is they look a little short. I thought the designs would be a lot of different. But they're surely better than what was described in the script.

Post by: pmaz11 on Jan 16, 2010, 09:18:23 AM
Yeah I agree with Johnny and all your guys thoughts. The overall film with touch ups and camera angles will make the predators appear differently on screen, so it's hard to judge them from these set photos. We just need to see a trailer now, because that'll really show us what we're in store for.

Well, no.

Everyone in the suits is under seven feet. They look short because, relatively, they are short.

They're going to need camera angles to make them look bigger in the movie.

To clarify:

I dont think the designs look bad in any capacity, i just think they look really random.

If you make a movie with 'Super' predators, at least make them super, make them stand out so you can really tell that they are stronger etc.

Seriously, the original in that pic looks like it can rip those 'super' ones a new one 24/7.

Because the script states one regular Predator, a handful of "Super Predators".

We've seen the single regular Predator. If they aren't it, then logically they're the "Super" Predators.

I just don't think there's anything instantly obvious to the casual viewer that these boys are nasty work.

I can appreciate what you are saying but what we see now is probably 60-70% of what we will end up seeing in the cinema. Im sure with some touching up and enhancing by the SFX team they will look more super and evil

@ Mystic

My idea of "super" was a little like that comic book photo that was hanging around here. Something a bit more slick, a bit more evil, Red eyes through the visor, distinctive armour, not bigger though, just the original predator with some stylized design.

Wishfull thinking.

Post by: Tucci on Jan 16, 2010, 09:49:06 AM
Just the way his mask looks, it looks as if the middle one would be the one with the falcon, but I think that was the BSP so unless that's him, I duno...The one on the right, to be honest looks EXTREMELY bulky lol almost like a fat guy, but I think the gigantic helm and big belt has a lot to do with it. The original pred looks awesome, as does the middle one for the most part...adrian brody looks like a Badass, they all look as I imagined them too.

Oh and it looks like there's a "New Painless" now haha

That would be the better option, seriously. Just make really bad f**king Predators, that are even hunting other Predators.

Besides those pics nothing really. I think he posted them just for frends. He only wrote under pics some brief description. Like "Adrian Brody & I" or under Steele's pic "Super predator bez maski".

I'm impressed these pictures. Truth, they aren't perfect. But in comparison to those we could expect - they seems almost perfect. And it seems that - in contrast to the nonsense that some tried to justify - Preds may look like Preds. Not like a drunken genetics mistake.  ;)  My relief is impossible to describe.
IMHO Bad Blood it's better idea than BSP.
Bad Super Predator? ;)

Geneticaly modified super Preds is not nonsense! The only nonsence was from fan boys/girls  bad mouthing and writing off something based on a draft.

BSP are something new. The old Preds still exist.

I have mixed feelings. It's hard for me to truly judge since I have not read the script posted, though having read through the forum responses on it, I have a pretty solid idea of the plot and the whole "Super Predator" and "Black Super Predator" business.

It looks to me, based on the pics, that the 3 Preds conform to a typical build when it comes to group dynamic. You have the Average build (The left Predator), the skinny, sleek build (the middle Predator), and the "Big Guy" build (the right Predator).

The Mask designs themselves lend to their body types. The left Pred's mask looks like the original with a jawbone slapped on. The middle Pred's mask is long, angular, and sleek, implying finess, athleticism, and ferocity. I can almost be positive the middle Pred is the leader of the group. He also doesn't have any bones on his mask, which I want to believe is because he doesn't need to show off. He is a badass in his own right, and the other two Predators adorned their masks perhaps to try and look tougher, fiercer, and more experienced than they actually are.

I also appreciate the fact that their chests are exposed, but their back is heavily armored based on the actors sitting in the chairs. This implies to me that, like iin the original films, they do not fear being unprotected there. They consider it more honorable to be vulnerable from the front where there opponent will be facing them in combat, but also don't want to be hit with a cheap shot from behind, hence the added back protection. A bit of a smug hypcorisy there since the Predator as we know is often cloaked and at an advantageous point in which to engage in long-range combat while stealthed. But that's true to the Predator. Though they have a code of honor they abide by, they also give themselves advtantages, and obviously would rather blow themselves up and take their prey with them rather than lose. The most awesome of sore losers award truly belongs to this alien race.

If these are your standard Predators, then I am pleased, and I feel they work as a whole. There's nothing mind-blowingly unique here, but they have just the right amount of simplicity and intrigue to follow in the footsteps of the Predator featured in at least the first film. I feel the Preds at the end of Predator 2 were more unique in design than these. Even if most were wearing very similar armor, their masks and trophy adornments were more diverse. Especially the Predator Elder in P2. I love that design. He could kick all three of these guys asses with his left pinky. These Preds don't look like seasoned warriors to me. Again, this is fine if they are regular Preds, and actually makes sense based on what I know of the story.

However...

...if they're intended to be the "Super Predators," then this greatly worries me. I would expect significantly more advanced technology on them, a much more unusual armor design, and much more "grotesque" features as a whole. I don't mean something gratuitous when it comes to grotesque, but there really isn't anything about them that makes them different from what we've seen before. They're too average to me to be Super Predators, but perhaps "super" is the wrong term here. These could be nothing more than Predators with a different ideal in how things should be done, but even if that's the case, the 3 should have something that sets them apart obviously from a regular Predator that we've come to know as a character. And it should be an obvious thing, something that clearly says "I am not like other Predators." A marking, an iconic, unique weapon we can associate them with, anything.

These designs just don't have that "thing" that separates them from anthing we've seen before if they are indeed the Super Preds.

I do have faith it will be a good film, but I'm just not seeing anything new here visually. The more I look at the pics, the more I do like the three preds, and the unmasked Pred is indeed excellently done, but it's all so very much the same. Predator 1 and 2 were both different and offered new things to the table. Maybe their
Spoiler
animal friends, hehe
[close]
will be something new enough to stir up the mix, but I hope there's some new and unique tech. P2 definitely stepped it up with new and innovative items such as the breathing mask, a more advanced medkit, the slicing net, the throwing disk, and even the shoulder canon was unique to the previous incarnation in the first film, but it didn't overdo it by just making things "bigger" and "Pointier" like a certain AVP film did... P2 was a fantastic sequel, even though for some very odd reason, it doesn't appear to have as much acclaim as its predecessor. It added to the mythos in a subtle, reasonable, and not too over-the-top way.

I hope P3 is great, I really do. It's a film I am excited and hopeful for, and I want it to be great. I know enough not to judge it based on set pics, but at least I could throw down my 2 cents and maybe try to add some reason behind the designs in my own opinion.

Thanks for reading, and I hope there is a lot more to see, and that the Super Preds, if these aren't them, are indeed amazing and unique.

QuoteA true Pred fan will have faith in a movie until they see it.
No one is bashing the movie, i have seen some bad behind the scenes stills from the original as well and look how it turned out in the movie.

But everyone can express their opinions without hating things for the sake of it. I don't hate anything about the movie so far, i thought the Preds are going to look way cooler, i didn't get that, doesn't mean that they look shit, i like them, but i think they could have also designed them much, much more spectacular and creative.

On the other hand, I'm so glad that they aren't the bulky, steroid pumped shitheads that they are in the script. The set looks amazing, the Predator pole looks like something from Predator 2 (which is awesome) and the cast and costumes look good too.
The Winston Pred looks f**king awesome, really really glad about that, but he isn't perfect either.

I'm missing the fishnet look on all four, the paintjobs on the 'super' ones could have been more creative, and they are a bit small.

That doesnt make me less of a fan though. So stop talking BS, please.

Bad Bloods: Those who have committed crimes against the Yautja race

Unblooded: The class of trained Yautja who at a particular time have not successfully completed a hunt.

Blooded: The class of Yautja who have successfully completed a hunt, but are not yet experienced enough to be true warriors.

Warriors: These are the Yautja who don't hunt with a clan, but engage solo in combat and war.

Artisans: The forgotten class, these are Yautja who invent things, build things, pilot ships, etc.

Arbitrators: They are the Yautja police force in human terms they are judge, jury, and executioner of those who violate Yautja law.

Ancients: The mightiest of the Yautja are the veterans known as the Ancients

They look better than I thought they would. Personally I'm hoping they've dropped the genetic modification angle. I much prefer normal Predators engaging other (bad bloods, whatever you want to call them). Mean's less chance of bad overdone designs. I think, as they stand, the bad Predators seem simpler in design, more primitive.
Title: Re: New photos from set (warning, spoilers!)
Post by: Mystic Ninja on Jan 16, 2010, 11:36:58 AM
Yes, very primitive!

I don't mind the genetic Preds, as long as the overall film is great.

I read a lot of people saying that they prefer Bad Bloods to BSP but correct me if I'm wrong...

A bad blood is a Pred that breaks some Pred rules and therefore is a criminal. Therefore is not the BSP with its genetic modification a bad blood?

Just a little note, but this is Brian Steele who played the T-600 in Terminator Salvation.

As for the Predator designs, I think they look a plainer than I was expecting. And I did get a bit of an ADI-vibe from the unmasked one. Well we'll see. The real proof is in the footage, and until we see some we can't really judge.

and what's up with the bodys proportions?? the middle one have legs up to his neck and the one with the tusks looks like a buffed-up redneck.
the "armors" are poor designed and I dont like that mandible skeleton on the sp, it covers his mask, because the guy has no neck.

the  regular pred looks good to me.

the script bsp and sp's were bad, but this ones just look cheap.

His just a guy in a suit. He did nothing special in a suit that some other actor in a suit could not do without some training.

In fact, I think I can do it. The hardest part is going through make up and having to walk around that costume all day. However, in terms of performance it looks pretty easy if you have the physique and stature.

Spoiler
re word of the new ending of Brody alone against a bunch of Predators (the IMDB interview) : if those ARE "normal Preds and not BSPs, i wonder if the ending could mean he gets saved by the sudden appearance of a band of normals who tw@ the BSP, perhaps a vague call-back to the sudden appearance of the rest fo the crew in P2? Depends on what's meant by "making a sacrifice".

Would have to agree with this lad. These predators are almost anti "super"

It's almost like RR and antal hung out here after the script release and shit themselves at the reaction.

I was really hoping for a 2010 predator, instead i'd say these guys are 1976 style.

Still pumped about the movie though.

That's what I like about it personally. It's not overdesigned, and it has an old fashioned organic feel to it, f**k modernism. Plus, I think they were made to fit the look of the world which seems primitive and hellish. I like the texture of the skin, very old school.

That's exactly the point. They're the same except bad bloods don't have stupid over-the-top armor, don't dissect their prey and try and incorporate them into their DNA.  ::) They're just Predators who enjoy killing, not the hunt.

I thought my sense of proportions, which is horrible, was off at first. But seeing the comments, I guess I'm not alone in noticing these Predators look a little short.

Overall, the Predators look okay. No drastic changes and a few positives, but I have my issues. I like that they look more like the first movie's Predator, and two of the masks look interesting- one's got a nice bone jaw motif, and the other's got an eye-catching swooped design. But I don't like the third Predator too much, the bulky one with grated mask. Reminds me too much of AVP. Also, I'm sure this was all snapped in between shoots, but they don't look as organic when the costumes are dry. We've yet to see the Black Predator, but for now, they look good. Not great, but good.

The rest of the cast is dressed well, though "Royce" looks a little awkward in his combat vest. The only odd man out is Topher; maybe it's just what he wears casually, but for his character, that looks more Eddie Brock than Edwin. The Predator structures and camp look neat, too, and the locations are all great matches for the story.

From what i gather though (I have not read the script) , these "different" predators are supposed to be some kind of upgraded version of the "classic" predator.

With all due respect to the makers, I think "anytime" and "pussyface" could back hand these guy's like Danny boy and Poncho.

I know some people will agree with me and some will not but those masks are ugly and where's their netting? I read on a site one time maybe Wiki that the netting is a heater for them and is part of the cloaking system. I wonder what their reason is to not have the netting on the Predators. Were these pics taken on a day they were trying on their suits for the first time to get the feel of it before everything was on the suits?

Just look at their proportions?!?!?!
They look like buffed with steroids and with their heads way too big.

Specially that pred at the right who doesnt even have a neck, short legs and a head , like i said, way too big!

At the other side, that pred u see in the back ground of that actor, that pred looks just great, like the Predator from Predator 1.

I hope those 3 preds will look way differend in the actual movie then we see in these pictures.

Maybe the Super Predators look so "bland" here because they intend to do something incredible to them in post. Sort of like when Lex and Sebastian wore those real bright jackets on the set of AVP so that PWSA could later wash out the colors in order to get a certain look.

Also, is it possible they can make these Predators look taller on screen? Probably if they're only digital right?

How about people have valid reasons not to be wowed out of their socks? The Winston Predator looks great, but the 3 other Preds kinda have weird proportions with heads that look way too massive. Who knows how they'll look in post-production, with the right lighting and filmed from the right angle? But right now, they look weird.

Nothing about the netting has ever been established in the movies so it doesn't matter... I do wish they had it though

Also the guy in the Pred suit on his own without the mask... Look at his stomach... Is that a scar from the two blades of a predators gauntlet?

I know it was never established but it does make sense.

Great to finally see some pictures of the preds.  I was expecting alot worse to tell you the truth.  The actors playing them are very short and I agree the netting would have made them look so much better but other then that I'm ok with them.
     The the face looks great and at least its avp:r dreds and not from avp although who wouldn't want to see Stan Winstons as everything he touches is perfect.

Can anyone else notice that it looks like the predator actually has a full lower jaw now with full set of teeth?

I think for anyone who is worried and concerned about the new Predator designs, you have to remember that these are not well-lit photographs. They were taken with your standard camera. Gyula Pados is a talented cinematographer and under his direction with his camera and electric teams, I'm very certain that the new Predators will look absolutely fantastic on film.

And in terms of the height of the Predators, these are not short men who stand under 6 feet tall. No, I seriously doubt any of the men playing the Predators are over 7 feet tall like Kevin Hall but so what! These guys are around 6'5 – 6'11 and that's perfectly fine because that's where the trick of the film camera comes into play. The filmmakers can make these Predators look like they are well over 7 feet tall with the right camera angles.

as for the lack of netting etc. I'd imagine that the costumes go through various stages of dressing before there ready for screen. In alot of those pictures the predators dont even look like they have wrist blades. So im sure all that stuff gets added in the end.

well if you look at the picture of the 3 preds i think the redish comes from the pred all the way to the left thats where i spotted it  but we have to remember its a pic taken from set there could be parts they have taken off them and so on.

No no.. Not massive heads... Massive masks... You want another massive mask? Look at Pussy Face... His mask was huge compared to his body...

As for the height... Who says all Predators are over 7 foot?

Also on the note of bits being added to the costumes, look at the pic of Steele standing on his own... He has a plasma caster and shoulder stuff which he doesn't in the pic with 3 of them(assuming he's there)

Post by: Yautja161 on Jan 16, 2010, 04:00:51 PM
i think at what some here are recalling to be "red eyes" , are just the lenses of their masks.

All u can see is something shiny, and some are thinking there to be red eyes they are seeing, quite funny i must say.

I am 6 foot 4 myself.
If i would place my wolf mask in front of my face, and i imagine me using 1 of those "buffed fat suits" like some of those actors are wearing, it looks quite weird.
Cause to look this kinda "normal", u really shoud be like Kevin Peter Hall his height, to get rid of the view that the head looks way to big for its body.

Guess with camera's u can do a lot to make it looks differend, so the head doesnt look THAT big compared to its body, LETS HOPE!

But i still believe that u cant totally change that, instead of using, like i said before, actors with heights like Kevin Peter hall or Ian white.

Not actors that are 6 foot 5 +.

Or use helmets / head that are smaller to make it look better on the body? might be a better option

Funny thing is.

By having read lots of things about predators on sites in the internet in the past years
I believe it all says they are atleast 7 foot tall or bigger.

Offcourse u can ask urself, "who the hell have said that ?"
Cause its offcourse just a movie about fictional creatures.

But u get an image about predators being 7 foot or taller, by reading all this things on sites and forums etc etc etc.

So... people saying predators can be smaller also... that sounds kinda weird.
Cause we were always told, or have read they are TALLLL, and not 6 foot 5.

"Yeah yeah yeah... camera's will change that, and make them look taller then the actors are"

got it.. ::)

Proportions and all that... mmm... maybe stretch the screen a litle in height :P

Stop talking nonsense... Who cares if someone on the internet said it? First off neither of the 2 previous movies give any mention of height or really much about the culture/race. Secondly... They're a race of creatures, like humans, are all humans the same size or above a certain height? Eh no... People on here really need to learn to except change... but if some of you want to let the height of the predators take away from the experience of the movie... f**ked if I care...

I'm not too worried about this anymore. This looks great whether those are supers or regular Predators. Its awesome because it all makes sense. They're not on earth hunting so they're a little less armored. They just have the basics. It could balance everything else. This could be great!

on the predator 2 dvd there's a section on the creation of the predators that states because they were doing multiple creatures, it was easier to have the predators bear-chested so they could augment them with armour. As opposed to P1 where everything was attached to the suit.

Set looks great! I like the 3 predator masks a lot! Unique and should look great in the movie. I think people need to calm down. This isnt even close to what the movie is gonna look like. I also believe that the predators are not fully suited up. If they are then I am not too impressed with their design. Look a little funny. But maybe they proportioned the suits so that when they are fully suited they would look a certain way. Well maybe not lol I wish they had bodies like Wolf

Also whoever said that havin Ian doesnt matter cuz anyone can get in a suit with some practice needs to go think about life some more. Ian is the best thing about AVP-R. The Wolf is IMO the best lookin predator. Ian does a fantastic job makin the Wolf so bad ass and believable.

Post by: JaredK21 on Jan 16, 2010, 05:53:33 PM
OK, so I gotta be honest...my first reaction to the BSP's was underwhelming.

**Now I know these are just amateur pics, and I'm eagerly awaiting to see some professional finished photos, but these designs are still the official designs so I think my opinions are pretty valid**

There is absolutely many things missing and 'off' at first glance. First off is this blandness of the designs. Nothing about the Preds stands out. They are all just so grey...it's hard to even see them. There needs to be a contrast in colors on the Preds so we can make out each part of their bodies/designs. The new Winston Pred design is gorgeous and shows exactly what I mean. We can actually see him and his different parts of his body. He STANDS out. So props to KNB on that one.

Secondly is the netting. The netting defines the Predator and 'completes' his whole look. It kinda connects everything into one bad-ass, killer package. Basically the staples of the Predator seem missing in these new Predators. The trophy necklaces are gone, The simple but awesome masks are gone, the various camouflaged color schemes are gone, differences in armor, etc. They are so naked it's almost boring. I like how they are primitive but this is TOO primitive, IMO. Predators are a beautiful blend of technology and primitiveness. It's missing here.

As already mentioned, the proportions seem off too. That was one of the first things I noticed. The Preds just seem dead to me.

I will continue to keep my hopes up though since these pictures were never meant to be released and are clearly taken before post-production. They are an improvement in the right direction, but to be honest I think Wolf (with his mask) looks 10x better than these guys.

We don't know.  We can only speculate.  The looks of things would say these are outcasts of some form, maybe bad bloods.  And, IMO, thats MUCH more acceptable than an episode of the power rangers.

As already mentioned, the proportions seem off too. That was one of the first things I noticed. The Preds just seem dead to me.

I will continue to keep my hopes up though since these pictures were never meant to be released and are clearly taken before post-production. They are an improvement in the right direction, but to be honest I think Wolf (with his mask) looks 10x better than these guys.

The difference is, these Predators are on their home planet. They're not suited for a hunting trip. I think that was the point.

I still dont get why the hell they didnt contact Ian Whyte about it, he would have been perfect.

Well he is 6'7'', and even taller with that gear on.

Plus Robrod and Troublemaker probably don't want to part with a crew in which they already have.

No because it's not in any way established in the movies that the net has anything to do with invisibility.. and don't give me any 'it's in the comics' crap... These are movies not comics... Comic rules don't apply/aren't relative

OK, so I gotta be honest...my first reaction to the BSP's was underwhelming.

**Now I know these are just amateur pics, and I'm eagerly awaiting to see some professional finished photos, but these designs are still the official designs so I think my opinions are pretty valid**

There is absolutely many things missing and 'off' at first glance. First off is this blandness of the designs. Nothing about the Preds stands out. They are all just so grey...it's hard to even see them. There needs to be a contrast in colors on the Preds so we can make out each part of their bodies/designs. The new Winston Pred design is gorgeous and shows exactly what I mean. We can actually see him and his different parts of his body. He STANDS out. So props to KNB on that one.

Secondly is the netting. The netting defines the Predator and 'completes' his whole look. It kinda connects everything into one bad-ass, killer package. Basically the staples of the Predator seem missing in these new Predators. The trophy necklaces are gone, The simple but awesome masks are gone, the various camouflaged color schemes are gone, differences in armor, etc. They are so naked it's almost boring.

Exactly my point. The movie takes place on their home planet. Its not like their going to earth for a few days to hunt where they would need all that equipment. So what we're getting with these guys are more primitive Predators.

I'm not debating the use of the fish net. I'm debating the look of it on the Predator. EVERY Predator we've ever seen has adorned the fish netting. It makes them, them. And it makes them look so much better IMO.

I just think these new Preds need it.

P.S. When I bought and assembled my Hot Toys Predator I forgot to add the netting but I didn't realize it. Something about the figure seemed off. Then I noticed the netting was missing and when I put it on the figure looked complete and so much better.

Im sure the movie will be nothing like we are expecting and will blow us away.

Why is that so freakin hard to give us back the design from the Predator 1 or 2 ? That shouldent be hard to do right ?

Some of you may bitch about how bad AVP R was , But , Wolf looked 10 times better than all 3 predators from ( Predators)

The one on the left with the creepy jaw bone mask.

From Bloody Disgusting:

Update: One of the images reveal that fan fav Brian Steele (The Relic, Resident Evil: Extinction, The Cave, Hellboy, Underworld, Blade: Trinity, Men in Black II and more) has also been cast! Bloody Disgusting learned he will portray the "Black Super Predator".


That one will also fight the original Predator then.

Post by: Yautja161 on Jan 16, 2010, 07:27:04 PM
something i want to make clear about the "fishnet".

Why would that net be for use of cloaking?
They do not wear that net all over that body, so that would mean parts without the net dont cloak.
Check pred 1 for example.

What i can remember about the net, its use is just for putting things on it.
Like whatever a pred likes to hang on its body, he can hang it in its net.
Cloaking has no way to do with that net.
Its just a freakin net.

Second thing is...

We all remember when Alien vs Predator the movie arrived, and we saw those pics about scar / celtic / chopper being kinda bulky.

Everybody knows the predators from the movies Pred 1 and Pred 2.
We all know they have to be agile and lean and fast, cause thats what u need to be when u need to use ur own body for hunting other aliens on other worlds.
Then the predators from AVP were bulky, what makes their how appearance looking slowed down.
What kinda makes ur how vision about predators look off.
So people started bitchiing ( me included ) about their appearance.
Offcourse there was much more to bitch about the movie, but talking now only about the appearance of the preds.

Then AVP2, with Wolf.
He looked agile and lean and fast again, just like Pred 1 and Pred 2.
Only his face was kinda f**ked up, but his mask was way cool ! thank god.

And now we are getting this movie Predators.

I just saw a message from someone saying "the photo's always look weird during they are filming the movie, just like they did in the Predator 1 and 2 movie".

Uhm.... their costumes looked great in those photos made during filming, really GREAT.

People dont want to see fat/bulky predators who have weird proportions cause the actors are smaller then Kevin Peter Hall was, or Ian white.

We want fast agile lean predators.

Lets hope that so called "stan winston" Predator looks the way a predator is supposed to be.
His stills look promising, seeing his head and upperbody.

But those 3 preds standing next to eachother.. ???

In the photo with Stans, Nikolai and Anatal there are same cages that were seen in earlier pictures.

something i want to make clear about the "fishnet".

Why would that net be for use of cloaking?
They do not wear that net all over that body, so that would mean parts without the net dont cloak.
Check pred 1 for example.

What i can remember about the net, its use is just for putting things on it.
Like whatever a pred likes to hang on its body, he can hang it in its net.
Cloaking has no way to do with that net.
Its just a freakin net.



The fishnet IS for cloaking (among other capabilities).  It is to cloak flesh that is not covered by armor (which also has cloaking capabilities).

Sorry, where'd you get this info from. I mean I haven't read it in any books or comics.

My opinion is about these pics (I haven't read the script and I want and will keep it this way ;D), that even though the design is kind of similar to Stan Winston's original, they look kind of strange. I mean they are a bit chubby, and their body isn't proportionate. I miss the body mesh as well (and so many other things), but come on, we'll see the whole. Then we can decide.

Everyone expresses relief that the super preds look reasonably normal... but we haven't even seen their faces yet. Who knows what their faces might look like?

I'd feel a lot more confident of the effects if I saw the old school style pred with his mandibles folded. That has been a huge pet peeve of mine.

Well, that's dumb. Just because Ian would play a Predator, that doesn't mean the Movies would be connected. I understand no ADI, since they can't make a proper Predator to save their lifes, but not bringing Ian Whyte on board, who's gained the necessary experience to play a Predator, that was really a mistake.

Well, I hope the new guys won't disappoint.

Except his face (which was blasphemous IMO) Wolf was ok. Scar.. he's a different story, but it's not the topic here. I just... can't recognize any former predator 'figure' in these new ones. The masks and dreadlocks are ok. But their torsos and limbs look a bit funny to me.

With the masks on all three look they've got heads far too large for their bodies. Nothing like the athletic and sleek looking predators in Predator 1, 2 or the wolf predator.

My money is on this being shit because Hollywood are incapable of not f**king these things up.

That's the thing - they don't have his physique.

Ian Whyte was 7'1". Kevin Peter Hall was 7' 2". They looked big in the movies because they were big.

The guys in the suit now are all under six and a half feet. Look at them standing next to Rodriguez - They don't look tall or imposing, they look like regular guys with oversized heads.

I see, so its a size thing. Athletic and around 7'1 would be acceptable?

I misunderstood, I thought people were talking in term of acting. I wondered what he could do that no other can without training.

Nothing.

But he could act the part and had the size.

Also, I really hope Mears does a better job on this than he did in Friday the 13th. Jason had no character in that movie. Steele should do a good job - He was fine as the Hell Knights in Doom.

How the hell can Sandy Collora make much better looking set of Predators with a 30k budget (minus the crap Red Armoured Predator) and these f**ktards can't make awesome looking Predators with millions behind the project.  It's embarrasing!  Christ, WOLF with the Mask on looks better than these stupid pieces of shit.

There are many things that can be done to adjust the hieght and width of the Predators. In Resident evil 2 they crunched Nemisis to make him look bigger. You can use camara angles to make them seem bigger then they actually are as well as pulling off what they did with Gandolf in LOTR and have them simply stand on elevated terrain or film them seperatly and insert them in later enlarged. I know i shouldnt mention AVPR but the pred alien looked like some form of alien midgit in set pics but in the film it seemed big and nasty. So lets just wait for the trailer at least people.

I don't bitch and moan. I question people about their oponion.

For example, if I read a post that says this film will suck cos the Pred has black blood and a triple cannon. I have a right to ask why?

I don't think that's bitching. The only people who are bitching are the ones who are bitching because I'm questioning their bitching!

Few days ago, I wrote a post where I state that I think the Royce Vs BSP fight is cool, many ripped it apart. Did I cry or bitch, nope, I argued back defending why I liked it.

You people do make me laugh

You still ask for the reason even though the reason is already in the sentence you question.

If one thinks that the movie will suck because of that then that's the way it is, you're the one calling people haters here, i heard no one calling you an asskisser for your opinion.

Because it's pointless. Many people, including myself, aren't impressed with the new designs, so what? They don't have to share your opinion, and they don't have to vindicate their opinion for you, simply accept it.

Also I have been accused of being an ass kisser, not a pred fan, 5 yrs old, having a hard on for RR ect all because I question someones bitchiNg! I find it funny, I don't bitch about it.

It's a place for debates, but you can't change their opinions anyway, that's not what this board it there for. Neither for being arrogant and saying "People will hate for the sake of it". Have you ever considered the option that people really don't like the new designs?

Like me, I'm defending this movie on almost every level, but if i don't like something i will say so, and i would like to do that without a premature shithead calling me a bitcher and hater.

Yes and it's already caused some debates. My take is that Super Preds will look different from the original Predators. I don't mind that to much. It just the designs aren't what I thought they'd be.

I doubt it. The article pretty much describes what's already in the script - a fire is lit, Royce fights the BSP. The set photos show a scene from much, much earlier, hence all three SPs and the full cast.

These suits are very likely NOT the "Hero" suits used for the close-ups, etc. The pictures nearly always look this bad when taken like that. I remember when people would see pictures from the various Aliens movies of the Alien costumes which Tom would wear, and no shit it looks completely funky. Just like with the script, I wouldn't judge their take on the Predator costumes based on these crappy photos.

An Alien requires angles and lighting to look right.

A Predator doesn't.

Even looking at the behind-the-scenes shots of stunt suits from Predator 2, it looks great. These look unimpressive, especially design-wise.

And the suits Tom wore looked off because the ADI designs were shithouse to begin with.

Not really. Look at the behind the scenes stills of Predator - When the suit's done up fully, it still looks every bit as good as it does on-screen.

Post by: Xenomorphine on Jan 17, 2010, 04:51:32 AM
There was a legitimate reason for the first creature being so tall: Everyone knew Arnie, which meant they deliberately played on that and gave the audience an enemy which looked like it made the Austrian Oak look small. It was a clever sort of psychological ploy on popular culture.

Remember that shot where it slams Dutch back agaisnt a tree by the throat? It looks real and feels real, because the whole thing is physical. All that exotic combination between tribal and industrial worked really well in that jungle setting, because you got the close-ups of metal clunking into water, looking like it had the kind of weight which only a man or creature of immense strength could just effortlessly walk around with. You saw that neon green paint dripping into the mud and sludge.

You saw it and thought, wow, this shit ain't 'Star Wars'!

It's the same quality the viewer picks up on in 'Aliens' and the aesthetic between them which amde so many people want to see the two creatures go up against one another.

And when you have two opponents who will beat and tear the living shit out of anything which moves, you automatically start bracing for what you know to be inevitable when they eventually meet up. Which, of course, could end up being anti-climactic, but if it's done right, like in 'Predator', the whole thing is a cinematic experience you want to watch again: It lives up to the hype the story projects within itself.

It's also why certain props, like the mask and gauntlets, can look a bit out of proportion when worn by a smaller person who's in that suit. :)

As for these ones, I will say that white tusks on a dark mask don't look like a great combination. The things look more slender, which is good, but the net does serve a psychological purpose. People automatically think back to tribal things when you see them worn. It makes them look primal.

But what'll work much better is if they remember to give them the little skulls to wear.

I'm hoping that the totem pred escapes and kills Celtic predators fat kid brother (far right) and his 2 little mates (with no muscle definition).

Brody looks like he's trying to hold a turd in.

This reminds me of the first AVPR photo when everyone creamed their jocks but it really wasn't that impressive.

Post by: Haggar on Jan 17, 2010, 05:00:54 AM
About the heights, someone said Steele was 6'7, so I suppose with the added height of the suits, he and the others (the group of three all look the same height to me) are about 6'11?  They are standing further away than Rodriguez in that photo so maybe they look smaller than they should.  Still, I would prefer if they were all half a head taller than that if I'm right about the heights.

Generally, I like the feel given off by these photos, kind of reminiscent of the first film.  Even Brody looks pretty solid.  The classic Pred looks good, although I dunno if they got his teeth right, can't tell properly.  I am also relieved we don't have that plastic fat look from AVP.  The one on the right should be slimmed down a bit having said that.

Overall, fairly relieved, but they should have used genuine 7ft+ actors for the creatures.

I personaly love how primative they look and with some movie filter they might look even better. rr made awesome movies each different in it's own way like sin city, disparado, and planet terror. Nimrod is a great director from what I'm hearing. Brody is an Oscar winning actor who suprisingly looks badass. Everything seems great. We'll never know how well the movie will be till we see it.

Maybe they plan to doctor it up with CG effects cause I wasn't especially impressed with the pics of these Pred's. Their heads look too big or their bodies not muscular enough in relation or something. Also I wonder if one that trio of Pred's is meant to be female. In any case I dunno i'll wait for a release trailer I guess before I say the film will suck or get hyped up for it.

A good story, well directed, with good performances and set pieces are more important to me then anything else in a film.

Don't know where you get the big explosions and gore idea from. Whatever, helps your argument even if it means making it up! Lol

Before you wet your pants, let me clarify I'm not trying to change your mind. I never was, I only ever wanted to know why you believe something like the colour of blood and a triple cannon could affect the quality of a film, when potentially the story, performances, direction ect can be good.

Clearly you don't have an answer beyond "I just do" or moaning about me making fun of your issue with black blood.

Sorry dude, my mistake.

I hope the blood is green and canon has the correct number of barrells.

Has it occurred to anyone that the pics of the suited preds might be of stunt costumes? I know that ADR stunt costumes look nearly identical to the actual suits, but KNB is infinitely better than ADR (this is KNB, right?) and the movie has a bigger budget and cast behind it, right? I feel that while the suited images look a little shabby (might also be due to harsh lighting and cinematography, and yes, it does make a difference) the ones with the mask off look spot on.

Well, I already did. Many times. You just have problems to acknowledge it. So I repeat it. Black blood changes known Predator to something totally different. If you want good film, well acted with monster bleeding  black blood, than go ahead! Just don`t call it Predator. It is same situation for me like with AvP-r predalien. It have totally different design and reproduction method. It`s not alien for me. Not anymore. If you want to insult me, than go ahead. I just don`t give a f**k.

Canon is already three, barrelled, there is a proof in one of pictures (I think it`s over the top but ok. let it be). But black blood? I think I`m in majority of those who thinks it`s shitty.

The Predators (at least the good ones) were tall, but they weren't huge. Broad shoulders yes, but they weren't Hulks. Not like the overgrown abominations in AvP.

With 'huge' i meant the height, not the bulkiness.

Well at first I really liked the way the predators looked and I still have some faith that they will in the movie and these are just crappy photos. But I don't know. Also think maybe they arent fully geared up. BUT.....they just look funny. Their heads look huge. They look like bobble head versions of a predator kinda lol   They one with the tusk especially. But I am still hoping they will look great in the film. I am all for something different......but sometimes different can be f**kin stupid. AVP

Cant they just look like this but with their own flavor added? This is a f**kin predator!

Completely agree. Wolf looks gorgeous in this picture. The new Predators should just have some extra additions to the them (like maybe more spikey armor or something) to set them apart.

But I want to add that this beautiful Predator was ruined by the Strauss Brothers because of the ridiculous dark lighting they used to hide it. Maybe Antal will do the opposite for his Preds...

And on a side note, who thinks that the producers will release an official picture now that these set pictures have been released to get a REAL opinion on the Preds from the public?

@Master

I don't want a monster with black blood. You miss the point, I don't give a shit if the monster has black blood, green blood, purple blood ect you get it now? For me, story, settings, set pieces, performances, direction ect are far more important and I believe that these factors make or break a film, not the colour of blood or a triple canon.

In regards to you telling me not to call the BSP a "Predator" - sorry dude, but who are you to tell me that? Not that I give a shit but if the BSP has black blood then its a Predator!! It will be marketed as a Predator, referred to as a Predator in a movie called Predators  and be seen as a Predator by 90% of the people who will watch the film. Yes people like your self can make up what ever excuse you wish to make it not a Predator - it won't matter to anyone beyond forums like this. The majority will call it a Predator. Whether you care about this or not, I honestly dont care.

Look, I don't care if you don't see it as a Pred or not. Just don't tell me not to call it a Pred.

End of story

EDIT: lets call a truce. Like you, Im a Pred fan. Peace.

The PREDATORS won't look like these camera-phone-quality pictures on film -- you can be assured of that.

And to the person who suggested that these could be stunt suits -- that's basically my guess. I wouldn't be surprised. They appear to lack detail, which is where a lot of the critisism is coming from. Usually those suits look awful, the actors in them look like midgets, etc, etc, etc. I doubt these pictures show the PREDATOR suits completely "dressed." People need not overreact yet.

For those of you who worry about the Predators' height, here's a little clarification by Aintitcool's webmaster Harry Knwoles:

QuotePREDATORS were at least 6'10" - that picture was taken from a high angle looking down at them, with things built to scale to the Predators. Don't worry, PREDATORS are plenty big.

Harry is well-known friend of Robert Rodriguez (they both live in Austin, Texas) so I'm sure he must have visited the set (he often does).

Well, actually didn't look too bad, the only problem was that the mandibles still didn't close properly and that the mandibles seemed too thick. But when he turned around in the chair, I thought he looked badass. The lighting and the colors were just perfect.

You don't always need to look tough or special. A lot of serial murders look unassuming. You always hear people say "He was a family man." "He was a quite person." "He was so nice, I never expected that of him."

Is Edwin (not Topher but the character his playing) not a serial killer who is on the FBI list or something. To be on that list you have to be pretty bad. So may be his a perfect serial killer, he hunts down his prey well, makes the kill and expertly leaves the scene without getting caught. Is it not possible for a Pred to appreciate that I want to kill him. May be he was added to the kidnapped group as a "warmer upper" for the bigger tougher prey like Royce, Nikoli ect however Edwin, as always, is underestimated and survives longer using his brain.

You don't always need to look tough or special. A lot of serial murders look unassuming. You always hear people say "He was a family man." "He was a quite person." "He was so nice, I never expected that of him."
And yet what the heck's he going to do to a Predator?

It explicitly states he likes watching people die. He's not a fighter. He poses zero threat to a Predator unless he manages to drug it somehow, and like hell that's going to happen.

as well as the intro scene from the predator planet.

This isn't the scene I meant. I mean the one when he's on that other planet before he takes off.

All I'm saying is that the lighting and angles of the wrecked ship scene weren't THAT bad, I DO think the bottom mandibles need to be angled in more like the original but other than that it still looks acceptionally good to me.


But yeah this is the shot your talking about, and it was the BEST shot of Wolf. No question.

Hm, the only thing about the Predators I'm a bit, not concerned, but disappointed about, is the lack of weaponry.

All I can see is the shoulder cannon. Aside from that, they look pretty plain. Which isn't a bad thing per-say, but I was hoping to see a bit more weaponry.

Well at first I really liked the way the predators looked and I still have some faith that they will in the movie and these are just crappy photos. But I don't know. Also think maybe they arent fully geared up. BUT.....they just look funny. Their heads look huge. They look like bobble head versions of a predator kinda lol   They one with the tusk especially. But I am still hoping they will look great in the film. I am all for something different......but sometimes different can be f**kin stupid. AVP

Cant they just look like this but with their own flavor added? This is a f**kin predator!
(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi926.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fad108%2Fboostedlsj%2Fproductionstill32.jpg&hash=40cc9ac94d02aaa90608d04d5c51668a22044f73)

Why does that HAVE to be a f**kin Predator?

Do you think you and I are the same build?  Do you believe that EVERYONE on this board looks EXACTLY the same?  Do you not think that some guys are bigger, bulkier (and I'm sure some fat f*cks as well)?

Of course we all look different.

So why the hell should EVERY flipping Predator look exactly the same.

Is it just to satisfy your fanboy wishes?  ::)

haha Fanboy wishes? Man I am all for something different and I'm still 75% sure these predators will look good in the film. BUT if their proportions look like this in the film then it is gonna look hilarious. Which is why I can not imagine it turning our this way. Does every predator have to look the same? No. Sure they don't. BUT if I was gonna make a predator movie would I pick a predator that looks absolutely bad ass and menacing like WOLF or a pale little bobbleheaded pussy like these 3 kinda look like? Well ask yourself that...Like I said I really think they are gonna look bad ass on film for a few reasons. But if they dont...you look at the difference. Wolf looks like he would kill, rape and eat those 3 preds man.

Do they all have to look the same? Nope sure don't. But to be the 3 menacing bad asses in the movie? Well that would be like casting me as Arnie in P1. Sure all humans come in different shapes and sizes but do not think people would be thrilled to watch.

PLEASE MAKE THE PREDATORS BAD ASS!!!!

Truly yours Sabres21768,

Fan Boy

Okay, but it's the same problem with getting people like Topher Grace to be hand-picked for kidnapping:

You're asking us to believe these guys are special, yet by all accounts they're less impressive than what we've seen before.

We've seen tougher prey, we've seen taller, more imposing Predators.

Oh come one lol! The Wolf with his mask off wasn't for the most part very impressive. But he does look pretty bad ass in the shot. But thats your opinion man

I agree. Edwin is a guy who has made it to the FBI list, his got to be good at what he does and thats hunting people, killing them and then leaving without getting caught. I dont see why a Predator wont appreciate that quality.

Yes, Edwin poses no immediate threar to a Predator but what human does. Edwins strength is his ability to manipulate people, to come across as no threat but potentially is the biggest threat. Not to the Predator but to the other humans in the Prey party. May be he was selected to f**k things up from within. To increase the fear and adrenaline - its not normal Pred behaviour but the SP are not your normal Preds, they appear to enjot stuff like that.

The Predators were probably observing him for a very long time before they took him and I dont think its to hard to believe that the Preds wont respect his obvious talents. He may not be the strongest, but his probably the cleverest (on a par with Royce, best allrounder) and his a survivor.

His a wuss when it comes to a fist fight, but his clever and manipulative enough to avoid that fist fight and then stab you in the back when you least expect it. Yes no honour, but his survived and your dead.

He would have survived in the story had Isabelle not turned alien or whatever the f**k happened with her! still confused.

Predators are serial killers - they enjoy killing. They're wusses like Edwin. They slay you while being invisible behind a tree.

They saw that he was like them.

Not a big diff..just abt 3 inches!!
Kevin Peter Hall was 7'2" without the suit. Whyte was one inch shorter.

Add the height the suit gives in the head and feet and you're tiptoing closer to seven and a half feet tall.

6'10" is way, way off.

And add those inches to 6'10 and you get around the same thing anyway.

What's worse, far as I'm concerned, is Anderson managed to find two 6'9" stunt men (who still looked way too short) for AvP. They could've got Whyte and those two guys back, and play the height difference off in the movie.

Instead they went for shorter people who, with the suit, are barely taller than AvP's stunt men. Who people bitched about looking too short.

Y'know why?

Cos a lot of the time they had shorter stunt people. And by shorter, I mean 6'9", bigger than anyone playing a Predator in this movie.

We have seen what happens when you don't put 7 foot tall people in the suit; people bitch and moan because they don't look right.

Predators are too short
Proportions look out
No muscle definition
Not menacing
No apparent upgraded weaponry or armour.

Maybe the only person left in the whole world that is over 7 foot is Ian Whyte. But he isnt worthy of this movie. Or maybe Ian is on a tropical island mating with all kinds of women trying to save his 7 foot + Race. Maybe the NBA just uses camera angles man. Maybe I am drunk. Maybe

I think it is, when you pass up on a guy that could be a freaking giant Predator and doesn't require the extra training, that these guys have to go through. And Derek Mears doesn't exactly strike me as a guy to get the subtle Predator movements right.

QuoteThe guys they have hired are not exactly midgets, they are 6'10 - big enough in my books.

Do you just ignore the posts? Again, they are 6'10" with the suits on. Ian Whyte without the Predator suit is already taller than them. With Ian Whyte in the Predator suit, where talking about more than 2-3 inches difference in height.

They do look small compared to what we are used to, but I assume some decent film-making tricks should take care of that.

On the note of the Predators I do still stand by the fact that I am relieved by seeing them. That said they arent perfect, nowhere close. They just seem to be closer to the orginal designs than I thought they would and look a lot better than the avp ones. Also Im glad they aren't the BSPs that were in the script.

As for the suits? They look kinda.. Unfinished.  They seem to all look very pale and with little detail. That said, the quality may be causing that. Also, where is the mesh? They look awkwardly naked or something. I still stand by that they are better than I had hoped, but there is obvious room for improvement.

The masks look decent in concept but poor in execution.. But that could be picture quality again. I am still willing to bet this movie will be a vast improvement over the AVP movies.

The stills are about as unofficial as you can get.  Why do people keep asking wheres the mesh, armor etc?  The picture of the 3 of them standing together should be taken in the same vein as the one where they don't even have the heads attached.

Ok ok, they are 6'10 with the suits. Its a shame Ian White never got hired, but that and Predators being over 7'0 instead of 6'10 is not going to make or break the film. That's why I don't think its a big deal.

If they hired someone my height, 6'1, then I can agree but 6'10 is still fricken big!!

Anyone have the heights of the humans?

Do you just ignore the posts? Again, they are 6'10" with the suits on. Ian Whyte without the Predator suit is already taller than them. With Ian Whyte in the Predator suit, where talking about more than 2-3 inches difference in height.

I agree, Ian Whyte is 7'1 WITHOUT the suit on. They should have at least spoke to him about having a part. But i think these guys will do pretty good.

I kinda agree but it is the difference from the predator being 6'10" compared to 7'8". Im 5'10" my best friend is 6'5" and while it doesnt seem like that big of difference it is. I mean he towers over me and thats at a 7" difference not 10" difference. But we will see what they do with the camera

Well guys.. may be those Predators are short 'cause they're hobbits of the Predators? Wasn't something special about them in the script? Black Predators are supposed to be baddasses, am I right? So they could be small - just like Pigmeys - 5 feet tall tribesmen in Africa. 5 feet tall guys hunting 5 metres high elephants with stone age spears and bows! Could you be any tougher than that?

I mean - seriously - 5 feet versus 17 feet!!! Wow!

I hope that brought some smiles on Your faces.. but seriously speaking this movie is going to be b-movie disaster! The size of the Preds could be redone like in scenes from LotR with Gandalf and Bilbo using very simple methods.. but script remains the same. And this is grave news for me.

I hope they don't show much in the trailer as far as creatures go, but I guess that's kind of silly considering these leaked photos. I wish they wouldn't have leaked.

I'm sure the acting by the performers will help too. Mears and Steele are definitely up for the job.

true and it is a teaser trailer BUT i hope its not like the avp 1 teaser ( they could show abit more) to keep us teased and excited for more ^^

If you're going to be rude to someone, like you were to me, at least have the courtesy to spell it properly.

Quoteand it was not that bad and for the preds smaller ? dosent matter if they got it right on film then we wont notice at all.
If this was an AvP movie and we found out the Predators were 6'10", everyone would start bitching. Maybe, maybe, a handful of people would give it the benefit of the doubt, but most everyone else would be chucking a fit.

and again it would be all about the way it was handled on camara ( but in avp case we got the taller people BUT the crappy design) so with predators smaller people YES, but if its handled correct then we wont notice on screen.

It would be constructive criticism if there was any construction going on. Nobody working on the movie is here (I think) so it's just premature criticism.

And why is nobody talking about how good the faces are?

Set pics taken from a cameraphone in terrible lighting. That's not a benchmark. And it certainly isn't constructive.

This is just normal banter that happens when a new movie comes out. Same thing happened when AvP R was being made.

Just part of the life of a messageboard I guess. I find a lot of it funny.

On topic Question:

Does anyone else think those are skinning's they're using as armor? It looks like flesh.

Several things:

1) Overall, I am getting a better feeling about this film.

2) The Super Predators look better than I expected (they look like normal Predators...which is good.).  I am not a big fan of the masks though, but I am not really complaining. 

3)  Is Walt Groggins (Stans) trying to be seen in every pic?

4) The logo looks awesome and so does the set.

Really I think this may turn out better than I expected.

Not a big diff..just abt 3 inches!!
Kevin Peter Hall was 7'2" without the suit. Whyte was one inch shorter.

Add the height the suit gives in the head and feet and you're tiptoing closer to seven and a half feet tall.

6'10" is way, way off.

Well said, they're going to be at least 8 inches shorter, a big difference.

Maybe you can pretend that they are kids/teens preds.
That would explain why they are smaller and why those 3 preds had so much trouble to kill just a few humans even with those dogs/falcons helping , maybe they are training,  starting to hunt using several advantages( its their planet, they have those alien creatures to help them)  so that after some time they can hunt humans in earth on their own like the preds in Predator 1 and 2.

QuoteI can not and will not go into great detail but I will say that fans of the design done by Stan Winston so many years ago have a lot to look forward to. There is going to be as little cgi as possible because nearly every single aspect of ths production is a back to basics approach. Nimrod is laying everything he has as a filmmaker on the line to ensure that he delivers something not only faithful to the original but something that also strives to surpass it while still staying true to the spirit of what made Predator so effective and special in the first place.

Of course. I'm sure some people might not be so gung ho to believe this person. I mean look at the AvP R situation with the Strauses. Probably not the best example but that's all I can think of at the moment.

But I don't believe there's a reason to lie about a person being 7ft tall in this case. I believe him.

I think our "industry insider" friend means to imply that they will make the Predators appear 7' or talller through camera techniques, or having them stand on boxes or whatever, not that the actors themselves are 7' tall.

I'm quite surprised people complained about the size issue in the first place. I knew from the start that they would probably use camera special effects to make the Predators taller.

Eh... I'm not going to totally bash the design, but, as a designer, i'm let down by this.

The reason the AVP predators looked short and fat, and this was in the ADI commentary on Requiem, is that they couldn't have their 7 foot actor in two places at the same time. they had to use regular stuntmen then, they primarily used Ian for the hero predator. Requiem had a better predator design, but simply, that predator was a clean up guy! and lbh, the clean up guy Wolf looks like he could kick these three preds around like they were rag dolls! I'd prefer Winston's work than this crap. I pray for the health of the design being put into these guys hands. I'd prefer someone with history in working with a Predator.

Nice. :]

I'm digging that the preds have that "dusty tribal" feel to them. Though from what I could make out of the mask, I didn't find them to be all that interesting. Though shot in good light, with the post-production and a nice close up it will end up looking better I think. Pred face looks pretty good from what I can tell, but I think the eyes are some of the most important features so we'll see how they do there. Didn't really notice a "BSP" in pics but the predator pic (with the 3 of them) the pred on the far left looks like his mask might be pretty interesting. I'm also liking the "camp" with all the hides and stuff. Looks pretty ghetto and alien.

mmm, article almost sounds too legit. If what the guy says is true then it makes me a little more comfortable.

Doesn't change the fact that the pictures are still crap. Like how come we get a good shot of the regular pred and not the SP.

I still do not get what could make these predators stand out from the regular predators to the casual viewer, there's nothing instantly obvious that these guys are anything different. Which i thought was the whole point of the story (although i have not read the script)

Time will tell.

Yep, but in the script there is only one normal Pred. Rest of them are BSP (excluding awful alternative ending), unless script has changed.

He broke his contract, cameras of all sorts were strictly forbidden and then he posts the pics online on a website, pics that are highly confident.

Because they were never meant to be released to the public. Those were personal pics for one of the actors, not meant for promotion.

Plus they give out the set and creatures, which weren't meant to be seen at this point in time.

I don't understand why there are so many people gripping about this film. This film is going to take the place of predator 2. SO when watching this movie you have to forget everything you seen from pred 2 and the avp films. SO this movie is like a redo of predator 2 which that movie was not very good at all. I know there are going to be some people out there that really liked it. But come on it didn't even make the budget back when it was out at theaters. That's why there was never a predator 3 ever made the stuido figured it played out. Which i can understand why predator 2 didn't do so good which predator 1 had the special force's then predator 2 had cops big drop in fighting. Then he was in the city which means he had alot of people to choose from where in the jungle it's pretty limited. Not to mention that arnold was almost killed by the predator in the first one then we have danny glover which he is no where near as tough as arnold and he killed a predator. so that made the movie play down real low. Now robert is supposed to be fixing that problem with this movie. Which i read where he said that his movie is going to be a direct sequel from the first predator and have nothing to do with predator 2 or the avp so it's going to make it that those movie's where never made.

Yep thats right, everyone with a negative reaction to the photo's thinks that the predators will look EXACTLY like the ones in the photograph, infact all us boneheads have made our choice not to go see the movie based on these few camera phone face book photos.

Did it say in the script that predator 2 and avp and avp-r will be omitted? if so that is too bad, i really enjoyed predator 2, it brought a different element into the movie being in the city and with that company (maybe it was the yutani company) trying to get the predator. and avp was good and to a lesser extent avp-r. i got the feeling that this was a reboot of the predator series but it would still be after predator 2 and possibly avp and avp-r just a separate film all together.

I don't think the new film so much "ignores" Pred 2, it's more like a mid-quel, and simply precedes it. Pred 2 takes place after Predators to my understanding. While I respect your opinion, I have to disagree with you on Predator 2. Predator 2 was great, and added amazing elements while still leaving mystery to the Predator culture and species. The inside of the ship alone at the end was so perfect to what I feel a Pred ship would look like. AVPs ships disappointed me incredibly in comparison. None of the organic, earthly tones were present at all in the design. They looked like typical spaceships with Predator symbols slapped onto them. The inside of the Pred 2 ship felt ceremonial, ancient, new, and atmospheric. With all the steam and eerie, warm lighting, it felt like a whole different, alien environment, just in the ship alone! That's pretty damn impressive to me to pull something like that off. That team totally nailed making a new, unique, and true Predator design, of course thanks to Mark Crash McCreery and Stan the Man Winston.

Pred 2's scenario, being in an "Urban Jungle" as the phrase goes was perfect to change it up. Overall, it all comes together very well.

Plus, Aliens versus Predator (the amazing original comic story that should have been the movie) would not exist if Predator 2 was never made.

Predator 2 wasn't just good, it was great, and a worthy sequel.  ;D

Kidding. (Well AVP and 2...maybe I'm not joking.)

It's good to see the classic looking Pred. Hell, I'd be satisfied with the design from Pred. 2

I know there are going to be some people out there that really liked it. But come on it didn't even make the budget back when it was out at theaters. That's why there was never a predator 3 ever made the stuido figured it played out. Which i can understand why predator 2 didn't do so good which predator 1 had the special force's then predator 2 had cops big drop in fighting. Then he was in the city which means he had alot of people to choose from where in the jungle it's pretty limited. Not to mention that arnold was almost killed by the predator in the first one then we have danny glover which he is no where near as tough as arnold and he killed a predator. so that made the movie play down real low. Now robert is supposed to be fixing that problem with this movie. Which i read where he said that his movie is going to be a direct sequel from the first predator and have nothing to do with predator 2 or the avp so it's going to make it that those movie's where never made.

I don't think the new film so much "ignores" Pred 2, it's more like a mid-quel, and simply precedes it. Pred 2 takes place after Predators to my understanding. While I respect your opinion, I have to disagree with you on Predator 2. Predator 2 was great, and added amazing elements while still leaving mystery to the Predator culture and species. The inside of the ship alone at the end was so perfect to what I feel a Pred ship would look like. AVPs ships disappointed me incredibly in comparison. None of the organic, earthly tones were present at all in the design. They looked like typical spaceships with Predator symbols slapped onto them. The inside of the Pred 2 ship felt ceremonial, ancient, new, and atmospheric. With all the steam and eerie, warm lighting, it felt like a whole different, alien environment, just in the ship alone!

I like Predator 2 as well, and it will always be the true sequel to Predator.  To me, Predators is Predator 3; unless the film somehow flat-out says Predator 2 didn't happen, I don't see a reason to ignore it.  I don't care what RR says, if isn't on-screen it isn't canon.

I think p2 was good design -wise, and the ship and elements ColonelDoctorPaulChurch described them... there's nothing to argue about it, you're just right IMO. Though I think acting was not good enough, and danny glover killing the pred wasn't that good (so I liked p1 more), but anyway: I think p2 wasn't bad.
But even though I liked p2, as I know, Predators are meant to be a direct sequel to p1. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a reboot of the franchise? And I remember something about it takes place 30 years after p1. I'm not sure. Again, please revise my statements if I'm wrong about predators, maybe I don't remember well.
Title: Re: New photos from set (warning, spoilers!)
Post by: echobbase79 on Jan 19, 2010, 01:00:24 AM
The only problem I have with P2 is that I think it tries to do to much in one movie. I mean the movie is as action packed as any movie I've ever seen. But that's one of its problems I believe. I never really tries to take a breath in between scenes. The only part when it really chills out is when Danny Glover is taken hostage by Keye's butt boys.

Don't get me wrong I love P2, but it's a movie with a bad cocaine addiction.  ;) It just doesn't know when to stop.

As for the pics of the new Preds. I like the look of the new Super Predator (thank god it's nothing like the script) but I gotta see better pics of them all to make a final decision.

I can understand i like predator 2 alright. I was jsut saying that from what i have read in an interview of robert that this movie was supposed to be made instead of predator 2. But Fox didn't have the money for it and they said that it was just to big of a movie for the time so they had a new script wrote and that's the one with danny glover. But just from what i read this movie was going to do away with the avp's and predator 2. Which he stated that this will have nothing at all to do with predator 2. I think that's why the new preds look like they do trying to do away with what predator 2 made the predators look like andgo a whole new rout. But like i said that was just something i read so

You can all go back and forth about how great they look. You can go back and forth about how bad they look. When the movie is said and done. 50% on each side of the argument will change their minds. So, get over it.

I stand corrected. Busted out my 1st edition TPB of Aliens vs Predator and read the article.

Wait, why exactly would anyone think Predator 2 and the AVP movies are no longer part of continuity? Or why would anyone think Predators would be a prequel to Predator 2? Where does this arguement come from? Seems baseless. Is this a reference to: "In a recent MTV Blogs Interview, Rodriguez further confirms that his reboot is to be the direct sequel to the original, possibly ignoring Predator 2, Alien vs. Predator and Aliens vs Predator: Requiem, saying 'Maybe people will forget all the bad sequels and only think this one and the original exist'"? I think that's just what he hopes would happen, not set in stone. I doubt anything in Predators will contradict what we learned from Predator 2, AVP, and AVP:R.

It's just another sequel, as far as we know. Fans love to make things up in their head to pretend the movies they don't like are discounted as part of the series, and it's annoying everytime it happens. Not every movie in a series is going to be good, that's just how Hollywood works, deal with it. I like Predator 2, alot of people like Predator 2, and just cuz one guy hates it, doesn't mean Predators is a redo of Predator 2. I thought the AVP movies weren't very good, but some people out there actually like them, and it's kind of a big FU to be a dork and say "Your movies don't count anymore cuz of something I made up in my head that's based on my crazy opinion." Until Fox officially comes out and says "AVP1 & 2 are fan fiction", they did happen in the Alien/Predator film universe. Period. And even if that did happen, whos to say Predators will even be good or any better than the other sequels? Maybe it would be like Halloween H20 and Resurrection, that tried to say Parts 4-6 didn't happen, and then they made much worse movies with Busta Rhymes kicking Michael Myers' ass all over the place. "Those movies don't count, but our pieces of shit do."

Listen man, don`t believe to every thing that you are reading. Only material that counts is the one from films and I can`t possibly imagine the way to remove P2 from canon. Ignoring it? OK! Let them ignore it but it dosen`t matter really. And to conclude, Predators will have same in common (or even less) to P1 as P2 have.

I kbow i read that sum said that it would be a prequel to pred 2 but this movie happens quite sometime after predator 1. And they talk about the predators 1 in the new movie. Where they talk about dutch and when he fought the predator a little more indepth than what was said in predator 2. But that seems to me like it would do away with predator 2 I don't know But anyway i hopeing that this predator movie is going to be sweet.. I know the first predator made like 25 million which that's what it cost to make the film so it really didn't do so good in the theaters. it got alot bigger when it came out on vhs and tv then everyone got to see it. Now predator 2 it made like 19 or 22 million in theaters when it was showing and i think the production budget was like 25 million or so. I looked it up sometime ago in records and ticket sales.

Listen I have problem to explain it to you and I really don`t want to do it once again but`ll try. This film is 30 years after P1. P2 is 10 years after P1.  Between P1 and Predators there is allot of place for second film and nothing can change it, especially not the fact that P2 is not mentioned.

No Johny, I`m asking where it is stated that Predators are set in 1987? No where. So we can assume that it`s action is set 23 years after P1, in 2010. So P2 in 1997 could have easily happened, and I don`t know why this guy Pred Fan 83 is so keen to dis it after Rodriguez`s bull shit. And I say that there is hardly a possibility to remove P2 from canon and that Predators will be treated as P3 not only by our comunity but by most of the people who are going to see it.

I was just saying what i found i mean the film would be better if it did take predator 2 out of the picture...  predator 2 suck that's why it failed and a predator 3 was never made... now you can arguee with me on that all you want but that doesn't make predator 2 a success so deal with it... That's why in this movie the predators are different and not like predator 2 that's also why they capture people and take them to there world to hunt which also changes things from predator 2. So really if you want to like this movie go in thinking nothing about predator 2 or the avp films... Just from what you seen from predator 1. I mean why else does the script read like it does with what the predators look like to what they can do to there guns and attack dogs and birds not to mention why they have a regular predator strung up and all his armor ripped off... Because this movie is trying to change from what predator 2 had in it and make the whole predator franchise go in a new direction... Because the direction it was going failed so there re-makeing it... Oh and the fact that predator 2 or the avp movies are not mentioned means this movie has NOTHING to do with this film or anything to do with the predators or people...  And if you wante to prove me wrong don't gip cause that's not going to work but instead do some serching and read the script and find something some where that tells me that i'm wrong then i will shut up...

i'm not trashing anything i have the movie predator 2 and i watch it.. but i think that the predator movie would do better in a different direction is all .... cause like i said it didn't make any money so there must be alot of people out there that thought the samething i did when i first watched predator 2 which is it wasn't as good as predator 1

Okkkkkkk. If you want proofs from the script then be my guest:

1. Action of the film starts in the city. P2 was in the city P1 wasn`t (call it a cameo if you want).
2. To kill one of new film characters the spear is used. Spear was used in P2 (and AvP, oh my!) not in P1.
3. Predators are using different vision modes what also was firstly introduced in P2.
4. Whole group of Preds was shown in P2, in P1 Anytime was hunting alone. To be honest Pussyface also hunted alone and first hunting group was shown in AvP (3 Preds just like in first AvP).

Prove me I`m wrong.

EDIT:
Try not to double post, edit your earlier message if you want to add something.

If you really want to know if P2 is popular then make a thread with such question. You`ll find out that people loves it. And the fact that it had poor incomes dosen`t change the fact that it is great film. BOX OFFICE =/= quality of film.

Post by: Pred fan 83 on Jan 19, 2010, 07:23:13 PM
Yeah your right... But what i'm saying is what the predators do they don't just grab people form the city but from everywhere.. So nothing like pred 2 yes they use a spear but anyone that's a native use spears.. so not like p 2 and first hunting party was in avp but not like the script reads from robert's movie and they use different vision modes which yes was first put into predator 2 But come on the different vision modes are a must to make it sweet as hell and not to mention make the predator more deadly

That's a hard question. There is so many way's this movie could be directed and shoot. I liked the script and if they polish it up and edit it some more it will sure be a blast to watch. But failure or success will me easier to guess ones we have a trailer to watch.

But my gut says, it will be a success. Otherwise it sucks to be Adrian Brody lol

I enjoyed predator 2, i thought it was a good take on the predators hunting in the city. I think this movie is going to try and take a different direction, but i doubt they will throw anything out from predator 2. Hell if you think about it predator and predator 2 are 2 completley separate films the only links are the picture of Anna and Gary Busey saying the predator hunted 10 years ago.

Heh, good article. Basically sums up how I feel when I'm asked to remove pictures.

one of the posts under that article:

Lot's of the people at that AVP site had allready spent way to much time looking at and discussing those photos (more like obsesivly picking at these scraps for all it's worth) Im glad they asked the avp site to remove them because people should not have seen the YET and since the quality was so low nothing good could come from "fans" trashing them at first glance which I believe a large percent have been trashing this film since the get go because of the producer.. then the leaked script..(which was an early draft and has been tweeked) then they were unhappy about the SUper Predators and the casting.

I dont think this film deserves a verdict untill after we walk out of the theater having just watched the movie.. And certainly people should not dismiss a film before they see it or let Paul W.S ANderson Or AVP R continue to tarnish this franchise.. And the AVP Gamer crowd I can assure you even thse fan sites throw what weight they have around too to "the even more little people" Basicly i could care less that fox took the photos down.

It doesn't matter. If it doesn't belong to you, it doesn't belong to you. If I was a Fox exec, I would just say this(with my arms crossed): "I don't care take those images down, they are NOT yours, our movie is going to make millions regardless of how much "free advertising" your site gives us, because honestly, we don't need your "advertisement". You and your motley crew of fanboys can save your mom's pocket change and wait for dvd for all I care. What's a grand total of $200 bucks less at the box office going to do?"

i really HATE it when some aspect of a film is kept secret then some fkwit fanboy or newspaper has to prove how clever they are by blowing it : a national newspaper over here splattered pics of the new Godzilla monster after the studio had tried to keep it as a surprise, eg.

if anyone did an ar$ehole move, it was the tw@ who breached his contract and put the pics on a web page.

Easy for you to say sitting behind your PC. Put one of us on the set of Predators and you get your picture taken with Adrien Brody and 3 predators in the background, see if you can hold your tongue.

Like Giger, Stan Winston had the help of his team to bring to life his creations.  Giger did a lot of work bringing the Alien and the planet to life for the first Alien film, but both of them couldn't achieve those goals without the artists behind them.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't referring to Gigers contribution to the franchise but rather Giger's overall work... And to be fair all of Giger's designs(style and aesthetic) look the same as the Alien design... Whereas Winston has done work on a huge number of projects all pretty different from the last...

I see it like this, Giger is of course i brilliant artist, no one is doubting that, but he's just specialised to on single style, and that's the alien style.

Everything he did screams 'Alien', just look at Species, he's rehashing himself over and over again. Winston created characters that were different in character and style, he did a shitload of memorable characters, giving us the Terminator, Predator, Pumpkinhead, Jurassic Park... not to mention his kick ass practical effects work, that after 20 or more years look better than most of the stuff done today.

I do in fact think that Winston is the better artist.

i dont think stan Winston had alot to do with Pumpkinhead's design, he was to busy directing it so i think it was tom woodruf that did the actual design.

How much Giger stuff are you familiar with, though?

I have most of his books, and his work isn't just specialised to biomechanoids. That's just his most popular stuff.

QuoteEverything he did screams 'Alien', just look at Species, he's rehashing himself over and over again.
'Alien' screams 'Giger', not the other way around.

QuoteWinston created characters that were different in character and style, he did a shitload of memorable characters, giving us the Terminator, Predator, Pumpkinhead, Jurassic Park...
The Terminator was designed mostly by James Cameron, Pumpkinhead was designed by his team, and Jurassic Park, well ... they were dinosaurs. Not exactly something they had to design from scratch. Same goes with the work he did on Aliens - Giger designed everything but the Queen, which was also largely designed by Cameron himself.

I think people give Winston himself too much credit. Don't get me wrong, dude was a genius and incredibly talented, etc. etc. - I'm not talking down on him or his legacy - but everything he gets credited for was a collaborative effort by his entire team. If you look through The Winston Effect you'll see most of the work pictured is credited to everyone but him.

And he acknowledged that.

But the same can be said exactly for Giger, at least when Alien is concerned. Sure, he designed, sculpted, and painted the adult Alien and egg and the Space Jockey, and designed the face-hugger, but the final form of the burster wasn't his doing and Carlo Rambaldi did the mechanical effects (Although Giger did design mechanisms for the face-hugger, using his engineering knowledge, but they ultimately weren't used).

This all being said, I'll take the creature effects of Aliens over Alien ... but the design of Alien any day.

I am not disrepecting Giger...the man can draw.  However, Winston, IMO...can draw and create the creature.  I mean the dude made the Predator from his drawings (and a little inspiration from Cameron), he made the Terminator (he just didn't draw it), he made the Alien...once again...he just didn't draw it.  He created these creatures.  Of course it was a team effort...but he was the mastermind.  He made these pictures move.

But he didn't.

His crew sculpted it, his crew created the animatronics, his crew painted them. He even jokes about it in the Predator 2 special features, that he gets all the credit while everyone else does all of the work.

Giger did almost everything to do with the adult Alien himself, with the exception of the head mechanics - Carlo Rambaldi - and making the physical moulds. He designed it, he sculpted it, he painted it. Same deal with the Space Jockey.

I am not disrepecting Giger...the man can draw.  However, Winston, IMO...can draw and create the creature.  I mean the dude made the Predator from his drawings (and a little inspiration from Cameron), he made the Terminator (he just didn't draw it), he made the Alien...once again...he just didn't draw it.  He created these creatures.  Of course it was a team effort...but he was the mastermind.  He made these pictures move.
But he didn't.

His crew sculpted it, his crew created the animatronics, his crew painted them. He even jokes about it in the Predator 2 special features, that he gets all the credit while everyone else does all of the work.

Giger did almost everything to do with the adult Alien himself, with the exception of the head mechanics - Carlo Rambaldi - and making the physical moulds. He designed it, he sculpted it, he painted it. Same deal with the Space Jockey.

Like I said it was a team effort...however Winston just didn't sit around and do nothing....he was the mastermind.  Just like Cameron for Avatar...he was the mastermind...but he wasn't the guy sitting at the computer working on wire-framed skeletons.

Winston didn't come up with the tech, though. Again - His crew dude.

People were arguing who was better, Winston vs. Giger, and bringing up that Winston had a wider variety of work and made his things like and breathe.

My point was, when it came to the Alien franchise ... he didn't. Yet Giger did. Giger was the guy sculpting, and painting, and touching up, and designing, etc. etc. Winston oversaw his crew.

That's a hilarious (and ridiculous) statement, as Giger's "one idea" is the only reason Winston had something to sculpt.

Winston didn't design the Alien, Giger did.  Winston just copied him.  ::)

But, I'm sure you're just some little kid somewhere who doesn't understand the contribution Giger made to this whole franchise.  So, I'll let your stupidity slide.

you're talking "Aliens", where Winston didn't "copy" him, he was paid to recreate something for a film. are you too stupid to understand that concept? Where did i say Windton created that alien? i kinda didn't, did i?

you let stupidity slide if you want. i'll let your ignorance, made-up accusations and petty troll attempts slide. i am fully aware of Giger's contribution to the alien franchise, i just don't give a sht because it's just a skeleton w/ a penis for a head the same way most of his designs incorporate sexual organs.

zzzzzzzzzz

oh dear, another well-reasoned response. you can always tell when someone has no intelligence : if they can't make up something they resort to a lame comeback w/ a silly picture.
no more replies from me on this matter.

The alien in aliens was actually made just like how it looks in the first film.  It was James Cameron that decided to take off the clear dome because it was to easy to break and he thought they look better with them off (totally agree with him)
  Stan Winston came up with the predator design it was James Camerons idea to have them have mandibles.

They are both geniuses and I love both their work. 

Gigar had crazy imagination but non of his work would look good on the screen.  There is just pieces here and there that can be taken but overall I don't find his work that good.  Just very interesting.  Thats why the alien doesn't even look that similar to the one on screen, only its key features. 
Come on he wanted the chest bursters to be damn chickens! LOL

James Cameron more or less designed the creatures for the seconed movie...not Winston, it was his job to bring them to life.

The Queen was Camerons baby, and the Idea of taking the dome off the Alien was his idea also...

Gigers designs are still there more or less...just tinkered with a little

ohhh this is too much fun not to weigh in on.

over all other artists, giger has probably influenced my work the most. his imagination, attention to form, and execution are unlike a lot of other artists. he is a master at taking the concepts and images in his head, and putting them down "on paper" (he is also an accomplished mixed-media artist and sculptor) in a professional, finished work of art.

winston, on the other hand, manages more things than just himself and his imagination. giger has a handful of design concepts that were able to be executed exclusively by him, while winston has a portfolio. no, stan winston did not use his bare hands to create every creature that his studio turned out - however, if it were not for his knowledge of artistry and his craft, he would have never been in a position to assemble a hand-picked (by him) group of artists to execute the projects HE was able to secure. he coached a team of artists who's designs were not only great, but all functional, for whatever a story-writer asked for.

in terms of output, as an artist, in my opinion, stan winston CRUSHES giger. giger made the alien. stan made it functional - which is what you need to actually create a reality. NOW I KNOW giger sculpted the original suit, but i think its arguable just how functional it was - and thats all it was - a suit - not a character, not a creature - other people had to help bring that to life. artistry aside - aliens introduced you to a creature that you could actually see pursuing the protagonists - up walls, across ceilings, jumping, tail-whipping... wereas alien had a creature the protagonists had to come to - he hung, hid, crouched... was generally a big unexciting pussy of a creature. especially early on it was STAN WINSTON'S team (not just a team) that created, sculpted, engineered, and acted as the characters they brought to life. giger had the imagination, winston had the know-how. how does that saying go? something like imagine in one hand and shit in the other and see which fills first?

giger has this mystique about him because he creates dark, surrealistic art totally of his own. he's not part of any genre - his work is very distinctive. a lot of people like to see his work and personality as a weird gateway into an evil, weird place. well, thats gay. he's just an accomplished artist. he's not a dark wizard.

Surely you're not dumb enough to not realise that has nothing to do with the people making the creature, and everything to do with the script and director, therefor has zero relevance on the subject, right? That's like saying ADI did the best Aliens in AvPR because they did nothing.

Besides - The first Alien did have personality (And did persue its prey - air vent sequence). You could see its brain ticking over, it was a thinking organism with alien thought-processes.

The Aliens in Aliens were zombies, totally devoid of any individuality, rocking up en masse when the script called for to get shot down and rack up the tension. No single Alien outside the Queen is worth paying attention to because, despite Winston's habit of creating characters, Cameron's direction removes any character from them.

Which is totally gay, as you would say.

no, i'm pretty dumb, but not that dumb. winston's cohorts did not come up with the idea or write the story - they were able to make what was in the script a reality - by problem solving with what techniques and materials were available. sure, the big chap LOOKED far more legit, but how much of him did we see. it's design is beautiful, and thats fine for something you just need to look at. but not something you need to run from. i personally hold functional design over aesthetics.

c'mon, air vent sequence? it wasn't the alien moving. it was a dot on a screen and an accompanying audio cue. then dallas moves to where he is crouching and "aaahhhh!!" monster hands! like someone jumping out of a bush on halloween. and justly, it can be argued that all that was asked for out of giger's creature by the director and the writers was to sit and wait, and was designed as such. thats why winston and cameron pushed the envelope again and again as an effects team - cameron had the radical ideas, and functional ideas for them, and winston had the artists and the functional knowledge to make them actually "come alive". no one asked the big chap to come running and leaping because it was the status quo not to. the design for the creature was impressive, the character itself (aside from the reproductive methods) - redunant. and thats not "totally gay", as you would put it, but just plain "gay" as i would put it.

Given how retardedly expensive an ad is during Superbowl: Maybe not.

Post by: ridetofight on Feb 04, 2010, 02:23:10 PM
yeah, agreed - superbowl ad prices are beyond absurd - i doubt they'd spend the money.

seeing that picture again reminds me how underwhelming the designs are. i don't feel like theres anything unique about it - that suit specifically could have very easily been in lord of the rings - it just looks like a ogre with medieval-inspired armor. i don't think its a total loss though - if they get good actors inside the suits, that can make all the difference. man, i wish kph was still around. no one brought characters to life like him.

I agree about KPH. He truly gave the Predator personality. I have to give Ian Whyte credit for his work as the Predator. I was hoping for him to return for this film. I will reserve judgement for the guys in the suits for Predators until after I see the film.

I agree. Ian Whyte gave Scar also some personality. Also I liked his gestures. When he makes that gesture "it's a bomb" It reminded me ona KPH a bit.

agreed.  the only thing that i didn't really like what Ian did was in AVP-R, when he is in the downed predator ship and observing the scene of the crime.  i thought it was kinda ridiculous that he would put his hand on the dead predator comrade and bow his head down; making some sort of "awww" sound. it was a little too much. :-\

Aliens vs Predator was in super hype mode at the UFC last night. AVP-R was hyped there aswell. I really can't see them running both AVP and Predators ad campaigns at the same time. They will wait for at least a month after AVP's release before we start getting stuff.

If they were going to release somthing soon, a trailer on the game disc would have been a cool idea. Kinda like how God of War 3 had a demo with District 9 or how Unreal Tournement 3 had a Gears of War 2 preview.

But I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Go back and watch both performances.  KPH perfected that role....watch what he does with the creatures fingers...the way he moves his head...the little things are perfected and that is perfect acting.  Arnold put on the best acting job of his life...watch the acting between him and dillion...the one about being expendable assets. Watch his exchanges between he and Mac after Blain died. That was great acting.  I could go on and on about Arnold's performance.

Basically an Oscar is awarded to anyone that does one simple thing:  If you "forget" who the actor is by his/her performance then it is Oscar worthy (all you see is the character).  KPH did it (went beyond the makeup) and Arnold did it here....

Earthhive, I admire your passion for the performances in Predator but as much as I love them they are not acting oscar worthy.

I believe Sigourney Weaver and Alec Guiness are the only one to achive an acting nomination for staring in a sci-fi movie. If I have missed someone then let me know but I'm sure its a small list. 

Arnolds performance in Predator was good but not oscart worthy imo. The closest Arnold will ever get to an oscar is an honoury one for his life time work.

In regards to KPH, he was good but nothing special to deserve an acting nomination. Don't get me wrong, he did a great job but oscar nomination!? You got to be kidding me. ::)

Ok yeah, by HIS standards, the best acting of HIS life, was in this movie(in your opinion). So? Still doesn't mean it's Oscar-worthy. I could be the worst actor ever, and then put it in a slightly less bad performance, okay, cool, but does that mean I should be awarded an Oscar?

And so what if KPH "perfected" the Predator? It's not like they had a previous film, incarnation, tv show, or comic to base this "perfection" off of anyway.

Awarding a guy for playing a monster? That's some carnival shit.

No, they used a one arm stunt man just for that scene, it was Kevin who played the Predator after that scene. He also played the Elder like you said.

No worries, not arguing....all I am saying is Arnold had a great performance...and if they put him in place of one of the other actors nominated...I wouldn't have complained.

Yes, KPH was the first incarnation of Predator on screen.  Yes he perfected the role.  Have you ever seen a "movie monster" played better since?

the bsp concept might work out just fine in the movie if done right.

So It's confirmed he's one of the 3 fat Power Rangers? That sucks, really not looking forward to these predators. I need to see some quality shots before I start laughing out loud though.

I fully enjoy the fact that this would most likely be a non-issue if RR hadn't chosen to refer to them as "Black Super Predators".  If he used Dark/Fallen/Outlaw, ect. Predators i guarantee it wouldn't have generated this much fan controversy.

But who knows, once we get a good look maybe that's the best name for them. If that's the case though...

However, I'm a Predator fan and I like the BSP.

I guess the main issue people have is the fact this new Pred is meant to be bigger and stronger then the original and that it has black blood.
Title: Re: New photos from set (warning, spoilers!)
Post by: Hive Tyrant on Feb 11, 2010, 08:59:59 PM
In other words, it sounds stupid to me. Why does it have black blood? Does it breathe a different mixture of chemicals than the 'normal' Predator to make its blood black? Why?

Maybe they're a sub-species of Predators that have made their home on a planet with a different atmosphere for a long, long time and subsequently this sub-species adapted. That doesn't sound absolutely retarded, does it?

But why?! Predators are badass as it is! What do we need Super Predators for? Wolf (the Predator from AvP:R) pretty much proved (in a somewhat silly way) that Predators can be moar kickass than what we've seen before. No need to suddenly change fundamental things about the species. Except that... Wolf seems to be acid-proof. Nevermind that, though. I'm just rambling about why I think it's silly.    :P

Exactly. The whole concept of the Black Super Predator is just unnecessary and unwarrented. If anything it sounds like they definately jumped the shark on this one.

It's not just because it isn't explained at all. It's because it pretty much contradicts the mythos which the previous two movies had set. At least, in my view it does anyway.

Didn't the Predator hunt for the challenge? The thrill of the hunt? To get that adrenline rush in knowing that his prey is dangerous enough to actually kill him?

If so, then why go through the trouble of upgrading itself to a genetic level, then kidnapping prey and taking them to an environment where the advantage is clearly in the Super Predator's favor?

To me it just doesn't fit the mythos of Predator. But hey, just my two cents..

The only thing which I get out of this that they're at war with the mainstream Predators, which kind of makes sense.

the biggest problem i have with it (and bare in mind im a big pred fan ) is that by the end of the movie no matter how big and strong the BSP is he will still end up being killed in hand to hand combat by an inferior opponent (human) cos lets be honest no director will let the human race be killed off even if it is only a small group. Sure there are your braveheart moments where the hero dies but its more of a self sacrifice for the greater good which still ultimately results in the big bad monsters dying and the few surviving humans doing just that.

that has always been my problem with predator. just from a different angle.
if the preds have cloaking, and want to hunt one by one, and collect trophies from challenges, why do they use shoulder cannons and what-not? these weapons require little to no skill (esp with helmet targeting), so doesnt that kinda make the honour thing redundant?

i want to see a predator movie where the pred actually faces a real challenge. taking on armed soldiers etc with only wrist blades and whatever it knocks together with whats lying around (e.g. bow and arrows) makes the honour thing fit, makes the trophy worth collecting and makes it believable if the prey does actually manage to kill it.

Post by: huntin8-t0n on Mar 11, 2010, 12:59:19 PM
Knowing what you're up against still means challenge if that something's strong. The same goes for the individual knowing his own actions. Surprise can improve the fun factor in challenge, but it doesn't mean without it there's no challenge. Keyes' team meant challenge. So did many other humans in the movies.

multiple vision modes, extreme natural strength and endurance, plasma caster (with targeting), super sharp (vibro-blade?) spear, cloaking device, throwing disc, claws, wristblades, netgun, dart launcher and a few bullet proof armour parts all against single vision mode, and either firearm or nitrogen freeze gun. i think the preds are just too heavily armed. the pred in p1 used less sure, but still did alot of plasma casting.
i think the preds would be way more scary if they used stealth more for getting close and snatching individuals with only wristblades, or arrows/spears for if they really had to do it over long distance.

Valid, but they are still up against creatures with serious weapons. Weapons that can kill the or damage badly. I think it's enough for challenge. In pred 1 he used his wristblades and pc like 4:3 (until the showdown with Dutch), but against Blaine it was obvious for me. In p2 he used all his weaponary.
Still, this is not my point, but that they can be killed and they know that. I think it's challenging.

Yes. Like the way he killed Hawkins.

Yes. Like the way he killed Hawkins.

but imo the pred didnt do it enough. the pred has an image of total badass abilty and strength, of bullets not being enough (even multiple direct blasts from a shotgun) so the preds could quite easily refrain from casters. afterall, even blaine with a minigun wouldnt be enough if he didnt ses or hear the pred till it was too late (miniguns arent easy to use either, let alone aim at a fast moving, hard to see object at close range).


i guess my point is, there needs to be a movie where the pred REALLY earns the title of ultimate hunter. i love the predators, but i think plasma casters should be saved for xenomorphs/ mechs/ big monsters etc.
Title: Re: New photos from set (warning, spoilers!)
Post by: huntin8-t0n on Mar 11, 2010, 10:01:17 PM
i think I see your point.I think Blaine was pretty dangerous enough. And don't forget the pred gets into battles he fights against multiple enemies. And with killing with wristblades would easily give his position also. He just cannot be at too much places at one time. So I think pc is okay.
But I agree with you. If preds would use mostly their great physichal abilities and melee would be good. Or just stick to their great hunting tactics. I think pred 1 was really imressive on that.
