Not addressed at you, Rakai. People are already calling out the worse on Facebook and etc.

Sounds like we'll get something similar to AvP Requiem where we'll get a scene on the Predator planet showing what they're doing. I can see fans having the same arguments just before Predator 2 came out but expanding the mythology was done really well there.

Oh, and I love the fanart. It'd be great to see them hunting some big creature.

I'm not sure if Shane and Fred looked at AVP-R, but if we do see the Predator homeworld (admittedly, I don't want to.. once was enough), I wouldn't mind it being the same planet, but perhaps a different biome. I don't want to see a different planet and it being marketed out there as being the definitive homeworld, as I felt like the one we saw in AVP-R was definitely in line with what's Predator.

The fans are idiots. There's just no pleasing us.

Every time I read a piece of news (that I've already found here) online, I see negative comments about "they're ruining the franchise" and stuff like that, when we know just about next to nothing about the movie. It's like they already know what the movie's like and hate it.

It could be horrible, it could be amazing, we can't tell yet. But I, for one, can't wait for the next news.

I was always saying I want something fresh. Definitely not complaining,  just don't place it in jungle please.

I want to see more of the home world from AVP Requiem.

That would be nice but something tells me we might get something different based on that Shane likely isn't counting the AVPs as far as the continuity of this movie is concerned.

That's the ultimate truth. While we maybe fans, we're all also individuals with many different backgrounds and it's impossible to to do any one thing that will please every single person who considers themselves a fan.

Whilst I love Predators, I do agree with this. From the sounds of it, we'll be all over the place though so who knows what we'll be seeing.

I'd be really interested in seeing some sort of artificial space habitat, like a spacestation or something. Change things up a little. I always liked the notion that the Predators are nomadic and I think a spacestation could both expand on mythology and also be mysterious.

I would love to see the Predators hunting some other XT. I really would. I thought it was a major missed opportunity in Predators. I think there's some real opportunities for interesting sequences involving the Predators on an alien world, hunting down some exotically designed creature.

I'd really like to see some examples of the Predator as a highly advanced life form, as clearly they have interstellar travel and sophisticated weaponry (with a primal twist).

Predators certainly had its faults, but I do like that the preds used since fresh, new tactics (robotic falcon, alien "hounds," placing a serial killer in with the prey) and I hope we get to see that highly intelligent/sadistic side of the Predator continued even further.

No arguments there whatsoever and while I do consider myself a fan.... I've been feeling my love for the franchises dwindling. Like the other day, I was watching all of the films (barring PREDATORS and Prometheus) and the excitement just... wasn't there anymore. I mostly played them for my Mom since she's a fan too but me? I just... wasn't really paying attention.

And I really don't feel much towards news regarding the movie, nothing negative but nothing optimistic either. I guess I'm wanting to get more concrete things. Nothing wrong with that, right? Don't get me wrong, there are some... concerns. I mean.. this new movie could make or break the franchise for me.

That's a shame. Every single thing I've heard about The Predator is filling me with excitement. More so than I currently feel for Alien: Covenant.

I've been saying for a while that The Predator is the one of the three proposed films I'm most excited for (despite being a bigger Alien fan if I'm honest), and the more I hear from the guys behind it the truer that becomes.

Like with any property, there are people who are excited and others that aren't.

I'm excited, why? Because there is nothing, absolutely nothing that suggests that this isn't going to be great, we have a passionate, kick-ass writer/director behind it that even starred in the original movie and a studio that is putting effort and money behind this and really hiring talent. What else should one ask for?

This is a great start for any movie and people should f**king be excited, considering where we were 10 years ago with the franchise, i'm damn grateful for this.

Same with Alien.
