It's bound to be awful but the idea still excites me.

No George Carlin though. :cry:

Not sure how I feel about this to be honest.

I do hate that they feel the need to bring back all these old properties. But on the other hand it'll be good to see Keanu Reeves play something a bit more light-hearted. It'll be weird seeing Ted and thinking "I've seen him kill a man with a pencil."


One thing in its favour is Keanu has barely aged a day so we don’t have to worry about old man Ted talking about “babes”.

I wonder if William Sadler will return as Death? He was the best thing in the sequel :wub:

Right. It's Shane Black so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt but that...was not a good trailer.

So they're just making it a pretty standard alien film now?
There's no team on it's own being hunted by an unknown threat?
I thought that was the whole point of the first film.

That's not really the issue (look at Alien vs Aliens). For me it's more that it looks like a standard summer thriller. No more, no less.

It's had a lot of delays , a lot of re shoots,a lot of very negative test screenings and the trailer does make it look gooseberry fool. Also ....

Story SPOILERS

Spoilers

It changes the predator legend and instead of trophies the reason they are getting the human spines is for DNA so they can use it to evolve into better hunters. strawberry floating bollocks on a Prometheus level right there.

From that trailer I'd rather watch Predator 2 aka the cop buddy adventure

The leaked plot sounded absolute horseshit and I didn't believe it, but it looks like it was bang on going by that trailer.

No thank you.

The problem with rebooting the Predator series is everything that made Predator great has been copied a million times since and would now be seen as hackneyed. I thought Predators did some interesting stuff but Adrien Brody was the wrong choice to lead that film.

I'm giving Shane Black the benefit of the doubt for now but I agree with you in principal, I like Predators because like the original it keeps the plot minimal and is about people with guns versus aliens with guns (and cloaking). These films are about cool see pieces and being carried by the actors; say what you will about Arnie's acting but you can't fault the guys screen presence.

Apparently the child is autistic and is some sort of super-genius that manages to understand the Predator language.

The Predator looks like a bad parody of the original and the genre. Predator Movie would have been a more apt title.
