I don't think being familiar with their societies inner workings would be a great idea. I think peaking behind the curtain and getting glimpses is far more effective. Dropping hints, and clues, red herrings, potential threads etc, is the far better way to go.

I agree. Seeing too much, especially in a single film, won't be as fun. I hope we never get a movie that takes place on their home planet where their sociological functions are established.

The biggest problem with establishing too much on film is that if it's done poorly and sucks, then it's too late. It's a done deal. Leaving us to imagine some of the motivations ourselves, allows everybody to input their own preferred ideas. Thus satisfying everybody. We already know the predators are a humanoid alien species with superior strength and technology. They arrive on space-ships and hunt humans for sport during times of conflict and in hot/humid environments. That's good enough for me.
This. And have been saying so since about 2003. Keep a mystery, leave it open, do not fill in all the gaps.

exactly why fix what isn't broken? But whatever this is what we ended up with. It helps me knowing in a few years all films after predator 2 can be ignored similar to the new Halloween movies decision. That helps me a lot with accepting this film. Just read the script and Jesus Christ just awful

So do we know if

got cut or not? I’m looking forward to some of the crazier stuff.

You can actually see pieces or remnants of those in the leaked set pics and even the footage that’s been aired (on the APC)

Well that's

It'd be great if the dogs were just made ubiquitous and throughout the film, instead of having the mutants.

Probably pretty terrible...

See now the one in the pic you posted actually reminds me of a female... it’s probably those child bearing hips and the fact that it looks like it has dangling earrings.
