The first teaser trailer of Shane Black’s upcoming movie, The Predator has released. Quoted as the next installment to the Predator franchise, this trailer has been released by 20th Century Fox.
The movie is all about taking action back to a point somewhere between the Predator 2 from 1990 and Predators from the year 2010. The teaser trailer of Predator clearly shows an alien spaceship crashing on earth which is somehow triggered by a boy, Jacob Tremblay who is shown playing with the helmet of Predator and armor which he finds in a package (might be delivered to him). Now the next thing that happens here is entirely predictable which we almost see in a Predator movie – an unseen alien killing the team of special forces which is out on the investigation of the crash. Also, seen here is a scientist (Olivia Munn) that finds out about the “attempting hybridization” using fancy equipment. She is also shown claiming that the aliens are doing this to every planet that they are coming across. Starring Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl), Sterling K. Brown (Black Panther) and Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), this movie will hit theaters on September 14th, 2018.
The installment of Black in the franchise went into works since 2014. Initially, this was thought to be a reboot, but then it was later cleared that movie will be considered as a sequel. As said by Balck, “Why start over, when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine?” For Black his new entry, The Predator has now marked a come-back to the franchise. He is well – known as a screenwriter as well as director for many movies like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Lethal Weapon and Iron Man 3. Also, he has appeared in a variety of movies as an actor which even includes the original Predator where he played the role of the doomed radio operator, Rick Hawkins.
This isn’t the first time when 20th Century Fox has begun working on the revitalization of the franchise where we saw a pair of crossover films – Predators fighting Aliens in 2004 and 2007. The 2010’s Predators was directed by while Nimród Antal in which a diverse group of soldiers are transported to an alien world and then picked off by the aliens for sport. Although the movie had ample space for a sequel, it looks like the studio is not settling for the same, instead bring the franchise to its original roots again on Earth.
