The Predator is a movie that has fans both excited – and worried at the same time. With rumors that test screenings were disastrous, and that the film had a comedic tone, Shane Black and company went back and re-shot the entire third act. The release date was also pushed back as a result of this. Regardless, with a beloved character like Predator, people are going to see the movie. And now, we finally have the film’s first synopsis.
Courtesy of CinemaCon, the synopsis reads:
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
It definitely sounds like an interesting prospect, and star Thomas Jane elaborated on some of these details (or as some would say, gave away too many details) in an interview just last year. Here’s hoping the film can live up to the massive expectations that it has.
The Predator hits theaters everywhere on September 14th.
