New Images From ‘The Predator’ And Details On The Film’s Reshoots

The Predator, due to be released in September, features stronger and smarter predators than those we are familiar with in the franchise. In June we got a look at the new Predator suit at a presentation at Barcelona’s CineEurope. Now, 20th Century Fox have released an photo of the super-predator sporting the new armor – and it looks pretty interesting. Fans are definitely going to be talking about it, as they seem to be doing with everything about this movie. Good or bad.

In the photo, shared by Empire, we can see the predator’s new look consisting of tight armor plating and a black gloss helmet.

On the new look, director Shane Black had this to say:

“Cause upon that hinged everything — whether you bought our heroes going up against him and felt a real threat for them. We had to invent a scenario in which the Predators were mysterious and scary again.”

The movie will star Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Yvonne Strahovski, and Jake Busey.

The Predator Movie 2018

Although we don’t know a great deal about the plot, we know that the story will be set in suburbia and the return of the genetically mutated predators is triggered by a young boy. Shane Black’s intention is to take the film in a new direction. They have recently been doing some reshoots, reportedly involving changes to the movies’ climax and connections to the previous installments. According to AvP Galaxy:

According to our sources the latest edits of the film following the reshoots have seen the so called “friendly” Predators that we’ve previously seen photos of completely cut from the film, as is the entire APC sequence and the various hybrid creatures. Only the Predator Dog mentioned in the recent set visits remains.

All death sequences involving the more prominent characters have also been completely changed now and the final battle with the Upgrade Predator takes place at night in the woods. After attacking the Project: Stargazer base, Upgrade gives the survivors a chance to escape before he begins to hunt them to find the best fighter amongst them.

In case you missed it, the official synopsis reads:

“From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. 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 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.”

The Predator is scheduled for release on September 14.
