I get what they are trying to do, but I fundamentally disagree with what they did. It'll be entertaining, but I sure as hell hope it's back to tribal hunting space lizards after.
I totally get what you saying. What I think and hope for this movie to be good, not a "Predator movie", but an actuall good "Movie". Because Shane Black is actually a good filmmaker. Now if we going to get a good movie it means we will get a continuation of this franchise, therefore the come back of a tribal predators will be quastion of time(my hope), and if John Davis the producer of all predators movies will listen to the fans or at least look at old movies, he will bring back the tribal feel. which a lot of us love about predator. Especialy taking in to account that Shane Black doesn't erase that culture, and just expends it. That's of course just my speculation and thoughts.
But at this point we do need just a "Good" movie. Because the only reason we all love the first predator because it's just was a "Good" movie. And who knows maybe this new movie will actually grow on people (depending on it's quality of course) and fan will start liking new ideas and designs.
