So, here's what I see in terms of developing patterns on this movies. The studio exec says "Unexpected and utterly fresh..." Can we trust that? Centering the movie on a father and his kid, putting it in a suburb both meet the criteria, but a lot can go wrong. Will the kid actually be friends with a predator? IDK. Let's be nuanced. I could see where we might have two predators fighting each other in a suburb. It could have a good pred/bad pred vibe, and good pred makes friends with the kid. That's the basis of T2, right?
Without belaboring the point, I think predators belong in dangerous places hunting the best-armed, most dangerous opponents available. On the surface, Suburbia doesn't really cut it. That is all,
