Love for Shane Black’s THE PREDATOR is scarce. Reviving any well-loved, iconic franchise is going to ruffle feathers. It doesn’t help that the movie’s marketing and trailers have been lackluster up to this point. Which is a shame, really, because Black is a master storyteller with IRON MAN 3, THE NICE GUYS (criminally under-seen), and KISS KISS BANG BANG credited to his name. So far, it doesn’t appear any trailer has truly captured Black’s style and quick-witted writing. Instead, THE PREDATOR feels like any other summer action movie – which is something Black tends to subvert. 

However, a new trailer and a new poster finally give fans some grisly violence, blood, and a new super Predator that looks vaguely like Arnold Schwarzenegger. It appears this super Predator is built in a lab, which will provide some spectacular Predator-on-Predator violence. There some grisly violence, blood, and, possibly, entrails, which always help spice up a movie. 

THE PREDATOR stars Olivia Munn, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Keegan-Michael Key, Lochlyn Munro, Thomas Jane, Sterling K. Brown, Boyd Holbrook, Niall Matter, and Edward James Olmos. THE PREDATOR hits theaters Sept. 14. 

When a young boy accidentally triggers the universe’s most lethal hunters return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
