Sounds great to me. No genetic splicing bullshit, awkward comedy, or autism spine juice; just a good old fashioned Predator hunt.We've got nothing to lose with this film.
Agreed. I'm excited about the prospect of another go at getting this right.
I'd go further than no gimmicky rubbish like you mention too, and do away with lots of the callback stuff as well, the same music, same one liners, same "Predator has to spend 5 minutes ditching all its gear to have a final showdown" stuff etc.
Theres potential to make a really original, grim, dirty horror story around a Predator hunt, granted its Disney so we probably wont get that far, but hopefully a totally new and past setting can be the first step to a really fresh story.
Good news, anyhow.
