The movie is the only source i know of...O.W.L.F.-Other World Life Forms. Keyes says the whole thing to Harrigan before telling him it means it's "a f**king alien" before the slaughter house battle. You could also say theyve made an appearance in a few Predator comics but the name is never acknowledged.The group could also be a nod to the illuminati. Their a black ops government group that conceal themselves as federal agents to investigate aliens, their group logo is a pyramid with an eye in the center and the word Owl is in their name. An animal associated with the illuminati.

I can't say I am pleased that Shane is acknowledging PREDATORS in some way but I know of expected him to go that route. So it's not that much of a surprise to me. I just hope whatever he has planned is more in spirit of the first two films rather than Rodriguez's film.

THE PREDATOR should just be a sequel to all 3 films as Predators took place in 2010 on a preserve planet. Everything is in line. I wonder where Shane came up with the notion of Predators being set in the future. Although it was never really explained in the movie, its self explanatory. Its 2010. 23 years after Predator and 20 years after Predator 2. This sets up The Predator perfectly in terms of timeline. All the events are in order. Isabelle mentions 87's Predator. All the evidence is right there. Besides lets say it was never explained what year the events occurred, for the franchise sake and continuity, placing it in Present Day would play it safe all around. But that's not the case with Predators as its always been set Present Day. But that would be the next good decision.

Unless we see a character from Predators show up somehow before they get kidnapped.

Or we see one of the three or all three berserkers from Predators at one point.

While Predator AVP 1 & 2 and Predators have their place how will this film acknowledge the events of those films without contradicting or further muddling the time frame of the series.

I don't think this film will be acknowledging the AVP films.. and as much as I do love those films, more so than PREDATORS.. if that's easy for you to digest... I'd rather this film didn't touch up on them or acknowledge them. So I don't think Shane is treating them as canon..

Interestingly enough, Fox themselves does consider the AVP films to be canon albeit as Tristan Jones, artist for Defiance says as "soft" canon (meaning either loose or semi canon)... regardless of contradictions with one side of the franchises (Prometheus/Alien) and largely ignored by both. So... they might be a branching timeline continuing from Predator 2 and onto their own path..

Of course that's just my way of looking at it. Honestly, I'm surprised I'm not fuming about this though... Maybe I've gotten over things.

Allegedly, the team from the second film who was attempting to catch the creatures. It seems weird to name yourself what you're calling the ET in question, though.
"Other World Life Form"? That's, uh, that's a little weird. Is there a source for that?

Its stated in Predator 2. Also, OWLF is the designation that Keyes' government group uses to refer to the Predator (as well as the Aliens in AvP-r). Its not what they call themselves.

With the characters!? You use the familiar characters to set the sceneria. Like they say a picture tells 1000 words. The moment you show Arnold/Dutch, Agent Garber you instantly connect people back to set the film in the right direction. Predator 2 already sets the movie forward 10 yrs. This one will take care of those other 20 yrs in between.

It's pretty safe to say that unless they are going to use the films as a reference, it really doesn't matter. Now setting the film before Predators and after Predator 2 does somewhat insinuate there may be a reference or tie into the other films! That would be awesome if they were connected somehow, odviously it would refer to Predator, maybe the CIA team from Predator 2 under the leadership of Agent Garber and then show Arnold turning down a job and recommending Royce because he will cross the line Dutch would not and Royce upon completing his task and being taken. Or at least show someone mentioning Royce completing his task and gone missing. At the end of the credits they should show Liam Nesson contacting the Beserker Predator via Rouces' walkie talkie and doing his famous lines i.e. I have a particular set of skills..... I will find you, and I will kill you!! BAM!! I just wrote the movie!!

Apparently, this film WILL be counting Predator 2 and PREDATORS.... And apparently this re-assigns PREDATORS somehow... in other words... this ISN'T Predator 4.. it's Predator 3. In other words.. PREDATORS didn't HAPPEN YET.

Lol @ solidifying the series "complicated continuity" by making it more complicated :laugh:

Seriously though, as Hicks says, given that the third film takes place on a completely different planet, it wouldn't really make sense for the new film to reference it if it is set afterwards, unless it's literally gonna tell us how Royce and Isabelle get back.

It's  just a polite way to ignore Predators, The Predator is set in 2018 and Predators wich has no time reference ,but with the weapons, clothes etc looks like a contemporary  setting, is like, set in 2020.

Smart Shane  ;D

I'm probably mistaken as I can't remember for certain but I believe that's what the government group hunting the ETs were referred to by the Strause leading up to AvPR.

Unless we see Predators characters before they got nabbed, it seems pointless to say when Predators take place.

If we don't get even the littlest evidence that the Predator takes place before Predators, then I don't care what SB says. It must be shown or mentioned on-screen, not in a interview.

I don't remember the strause bro's ever saying anything about O.W.L.F. in Avp-R. However, i do remember they were in talks to make Garber the colonel but they couldn't get Adam Baldwin to do it

Also, the Avp movies will never be canon just like Colonial Marines will never be canon. Whoever is saying that obviously doesn't know about the new info regarding Michael Bishop from the Weyland Yutani Report. Now If they mean their allowed to take certain elements from Avp like Preds teaching us to build pyramids or using the young queen from Avp-R then i'd have no problem with that. I myself treat the preds we see in Avp as an older generation of Predators whose armor and tech have advanced to what we see on newer yautja today. Neca's bio's for the Avp preds also help in that regard. For example, the Temple Guard predator's role in yautja society is exactly the same as the Enforcer Predators role. The Enforcer could be the future Temple Guard.

Even if they acknowledge some or all the events from the previous films, it doesn't have to be major.

Acknowledging Predator 2 could be as simple as using a smart disc or telescopic spear or net gun.
