Predators is on thesame medicority plane as AvP. Those films are complementary to me. Where one does right, other does wrong and vice versa.

Going back to present time. I still don`t get, how going throught the most generic way, with new film, it`s going to enrich the franchise? Same goes with Super Predator concept. People didn`t like it in 2010, why go back to it?

I don't find the script generic. I don't think it has any relation to anything in Predators (which not a lot of people saw). You may or may not feel differently when the film comes out.

I`m not saying it has anything to do with Ps per se, but Super Predator concept was introduced in script for Ps. Predators modyfying their genome with verious prey dna to upgrade their efficiency, sounds familiar?

A lot of people losing their shit (not necessarily on here) at Sterling's claim the film will be funny clearly forgot how serious the first one was when Arnie nailed a guy to a post with his knife and told him to "stick around".

Just look at the first Lethal Weapon that Black wrote - very funny when it wants to be, but hardly a lighthearted movie. It's dark as hell.

In fairness, this script is a lot more overtly humorous than the occasional joke in the original. Shane Black (and Fred Dekker) like a lot of humor with their action, it's the way they are. If you like their work you'll probably be happy; if you don't you might not.

You're entitled to feel that way. All I can tell you is I think the story gives the Predators a new complexity and purpose that can allow the franchise to expand between just doing more movies with them hunting over and over and diminshing returns. Watch the film and decide for yourself.

I don't remember a thing about that in the actual film. I'm not saying it's not in there, but it clearly didn't make an impression. If it was in the script and not the film then it's not relevant. Personally I doubt the creators of this film went so far as to read that.

Has it even been proven the leaked script is entirely legit? Either way, I've purposefully not read it. I'd rather see it fresh.

I love Black's writing style, so if the film's in line with his previous works I'm sure I'll love that aspect of it.

Not much of it made into the final film but it was in the script and was not liked by fans.

The script is legit.

There's plenty of openings in the story from where it goes, IMO.

Provided the film does well, that is the new direction of the franchise.

It also changes the whole plot of hunting and randers other film nonexistent.

It doesn't render those films nonexistent; they happened. But this story draws a much clearer distinction between the concept of hunter and Predator and gets into why they hunt for sport as opposed to being strictly natural predators. Also, this is not leading to the kind of movie you are thinking of. In terms of how the Predators behave in this story, regardless of what their strategy is, their execution is what it has always been - kill everything.

As for trying something different, this is that. Not trying something different would be making another variation on the movie from '87, another straight hunt. Predators tried that and flopped. This story gives the franchise an aim and future purpose. Whether you dig it or not is up to you when you see the movie.

These spoilers are slowly killing any interest in the movie.

It's a complete reboot.  If you think otherwise your in denial.  It's S. Black "refreshing" the Pred franchise.  AKA.  Who gives a sh-t about the back story/Dutch/etc.  We've got new blood to pump money out of.  And let it stand that a little nod here and there to the "old" movies can be done in a reboot.  This is horrible. I'm giving up on the Dutch/Arnold angle/story being made whole. Good luck everyone with your "new" "rebooted" Pred franchise.  Makes me appreciate the Alien Universe so much more now.

Chill, Winston. Just asking how you know with such certainty.
