The film arrives in cinemas in September
A new trailer for ‘The Predator’ has dropped, following on from a short teaser released last month.
The new movie is directed by Shane Black, who has previously worked on Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
This latest trailer sees the introduction of a new hybrid warrior, named ‘The Ultimate Predator’. The studio also released a brand new poster for the movie. You can watch the trailer below and see the new poster below that.
The film stars Shane Black, starring Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Olivia Munn, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown and Alfie Allen and is set for release on September 14.
A full synopsis for the film 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.”
Speaking of The Predator back in 2015, producer John Davis said the sequel will ‘reinvent’ the franchise.
“I think it’s genius and I think it’s entertaining, and what it did is recreate a famous franchise in a different, interesting way; looking at it from a different light. He’s just an amazing writer-director. He’s got a way of looking at this that makes you excited again. I love this franchise. It was the first movie I ever did. I remember in being in the jungle with Arnold [Schwarzenegger] as a 28-year-old and going, ‘This is a fun business!’…Shane’s amazing. He’s an amazing storyteller.
“Shane’s got a writing partner, Fred Dekker. They’ve been doing it together and Fred’s great. The two of them together, they’ve been in the business for a long time, but the writing is so fresh, the perspective is so fresh. I’m telling you you’re going to get something you don’t expect and you’re going to say, ‘This is the most entertaining way to reinvent a franchise.’ I mean he’s the guy who wrote Iron Man 3.”
