Oh, my bad, I misread you saying Fugitive. Yeah, that's a SIG. I think it's a 553.

I haven't read it yet.

This interview with one of the editors provides some insight into the studio using an utterly flawed test screening process to dictate the creative direction of the movie.

Quote
Working with the VFX and CGI made it “fun and interesting” for the entire team, Miller explains. However, audience testing often delivered different results from the decisions made by the creative talents responsible for cutting the feature film.

“Green screens and proxy actors for digital characters don’t offer the audience an authentic experience about what the movie is doing and the nature of the studio system means you can get negative reactions which is frustrating,” he adds.

Some more concepts from Constantine Sekeris, including a Predator spacesuit!

Here r some early Predator Armor exploration Martin Whist Production Designer had me quickly explore for Shane Black and to help give more options to the Costume Designer ........one version is a sleeker cleaner spacesuit option and the other is referencing the original 80s design with modifications with out any accessories like his helmet,guantlets,shoulder gun,tubes,skulls,ect......had to do these pretty quickly so didnt have time to refine any details or pose them.....none of these made it into the film...but was allot of fun exploring different designs.

I like the redesigned netting -- that's something I'd like to see in future movies.

But the rest of that armour is just so generic. I know the guy was on a time limit but it looks straight out of every sci-fi soldier game in the last 20 years.

I don't know.
Predators are not certainly about being good looking or trendy, and so a space suit doesn't work in my mind.

Neither we've ever seen a predator wearing one. From my point of view it would not add anything good to him apart criticism. Does they even need it in a..what..5th film?
The focus must be his lust for blood, the restless hunting of his pray (and playing with her), his ruthelsness. Make predator scary again!
A bunch of guys trying to outjoke each other with some predator on steroids running around is not what people desires. Well..sorry for going OT but I had to say it, again. :)
