His text:

"So unbelievably stoked to annouce that I am a Creative Consultant for The @predator! The hardest secret to keep was being apart of such a massive project with this amazing cast and crew. Thanks to Shane Black for bringing me on board and all of the cast and crew for treating me so well, and a special shout-out to @alfieeallen for being such a great student of magic throughout the shoot. There is a moment of magic in the film that will make you smile, and it is in theatres today!
Also! Huge thanks to @thezone913 for having me on air yesterday to announce the film, I had a great time, as always. xx

Was there ever an explanation on the fugitives armour? If there wasn't I'd love to know what the thought process was behind it. The armour grew on me a lot but was just wasted in the film. I thought it would at least help in his mission and fight against the Assassin.

They mention that briefly:

Also, it seems this book was completed before the reshoots, as I haven't seen any mention of them and they discuss scenes and characters as if they are still in the film. Case in point: Keegan-Michael Key discussing the "Emissary" Predators.

Kinda sucks that "two of the most intriguing characters in the whole piece" were cut from the film entirely.

This makes me even more curious to understand how the two emissaries went from important and lore-rich roles to essentially Upgrade fodder.  What happened throughout the creative process that led to this change?  Those excerpts make it seem as though at one point, the two held a lot of promise - like initially they were supposed to have more of a role in the movie - more than riding to their deaths.  Was it too controversial to show Predators doing something other than hunting?  Also makes me wonder if there was more to the two that we didn’t read about, that ended up actually being filmed...and ultimately tossed.

The process behind the scenes. The artists that built these suits are at the top of their game. Refinements are constant until the day of shooting. #adi #amalgamateddynamics #hollywood #thepredator #behindthescenes #giant #suit #workplay #instagood #follow #pose #art #craftsmanship

Ah, thanks.  I actually drew a total blank on hybrids at first, but I recall something about weird-o Predator creatures with tentacles and extra arms and stuff?

I hope we see some of thoughts scenes. The effects probably weren't fine but it would be nice to see.

Being the cinematographer behind Watchmen, 300, Batman V Superman, etc (you cant deny the cintematography in those was masterful), he should have been left in charge of  the decisions in The Predator, at least it would have been a beautiful nonsense and not a dull-looking nonsense. Story and characters in this case are far from good enough, and the action was messy and badly filmed  :'(

So has anyone spotted the original red suit easter egg that Larry Fong has mentioned is in there somewhere? Nothing springs to mind that I can recall, but I did miss some of the other easter eggs people have pointed out so I clearly just didn't notice it.

His work with Snyder his great, but the visuals of this movi are so generic anybody could have done it. Also i am sure the movie in its complete form had something resembling a story and characters, but not the movie that we got.
