I’ve always been a big fan of both the Alien and Predator franchises. Heck, I even enjoyed BOTH mash-ups known as Alien vs. Predator and AVP: Requiem. They both have their (giant) flaws, but they still work as movies from both series’.
As far as the Predator series goes, I hold the first one up high as a classic action film, while I hold the second one rather low as a sequel that I don’t care to revisit all that much. But Predators is my jam and I really don’t care who wants to disagree with me on that one.
It’s safe to say that I was always planning on seeing Shane Black‘s The Predator. Mostly because I love the character, but also because Shane Black‘s The Nice Guys was fantastic and this filmmaker needs all of the support he can get (especially after the horrible Iron Man 3).
The first couple trailers honestly didn’t sell me too hard on the film, despite the character being the ultimate bad ass hunter that really needs no introduction.
Still, I was worried that Black had a dud on his hands and suddenly all of that worry is gone as this final trailer pumps up the gore, sprinkles in some heavy cursing and most importantly, promises a hell of a good time as a rag-tag group of mercenaries go to war with an alien killing machine.
Are you ready for this one?
