New ‘The Predator’ Clip Features 34 Seconds of a Giant-Sized Predator Wrestling a Regular-Sized Predator

When I posted 20th Century Fox’s “final” trailer for The Predator last week, I wasn’t feeling very confident when I wrote that it would, “probably be our last look at The Predator before it hits theaters in two weeks.” I should have known that a film that’s been so overexposed before its release wouldn’t stop with a “final” clip! The new video, entitled “Hunting Each Other,” shows an average-sized Predator duke it out with a super-sized Predator in a “Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant” style wrestling match! read more

20th Century Fox Releases Final Trailer for ‘The Predator’

20th Century Fox just released what will probably be our last look at The Predator before it hits theaters in two weeks. Introducing “The Predator Final Trailer,” a dark and gritty new clip full of all sorts of spoileriffic moments and characters!

Edward James Olmos Confirms His Character was Cut from ‘The Predator’

Shane Black’s upcoming film, The Predator, boasts a massive ensemble cast, including Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Yvonne Strahovski, Sterling K. Brown, and Jacob Tremblay. Unfortunately, the film’s lengthy reshooting and editing proceeds means that one prominent member of the stellar cast will make it to the silver screen.

Edward James Olmos was cast in the role of a four-star general in the movie, but during a publicity interview for his new FX show, Mayans M.C.,  Olmos confirmed to /Film that his character will not appear in the final cut of The Predator: read more

New Red Band Trailer Released for ‘The Predator’

Today 20th Century Fox has released the much-anticipated red band trailer for Shane Black’s upcoming film The Predator. The trailer which is over two minutes, is packed with action as we see a predator take on humans and even another predator.

The movie is described as:
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home.

‘The Predator’ Reshoots Include a Rewritten Third Act

Principal photography began on director Shane Black’s The Predator all the way back in February of 2017, but we reported last April that the film was delayed six months from an original release date of February 9th to August 3rd, 2018. We now know part of the reason why the film is taking so long to hit cinemas: most of the third act of the movie was almost completely rewritten for reshoots.

Actor Keegan-Michael Key told Cinema Blend that reshoots for the film have finally wrapped last week, and that most of the ending was changed with the revisions. Here’s how he put it: read more

The Predator Delayed to Late Summer 2018

Fans of The Predator are going to have to wait a little longer to get to da choppa! Fox’s film, which is directed by Shane Black, was originally scheduled to hit theaters on February 9th, 2018. The Wrap reports that the release date has now been pushed back to August 3rd, 2018. No reason was given for this delay.

The Predator began principal photography on February 20th, 2017. Since then, major talent like Yvonne Strahovski and Edward James Olmos have been added to the cast. Those announcements rolled in up until March 27th… a full month after cameras started rolling. Usually the core cast of a film is secured before principal photography begins. Now, two months into production, the release date has been pushed back by five full months. No one has come out and said that the production on the film has been troubled, but all of these developments are starting to add up. read more

Edward James Olmos Joins Cast of The Predator

It’s been a good month for Edward James Olmos! First, he revealed that he is returning as the legendary Gaff in Blade Runner 2049. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that he will play a military character in The Predator!

Olmos is the second big name to be added to the film since principal photograph began in Vancouver on February 20th. This announcement follows the addition of Chuck/Dexter star Yvonne Strahovski joining the cast earlier this month. The film was star-studded before either announcement. Shane Black (who played Hawkins in the original film) is back this time pulling double duty in the writer’s and the director’s seat; and the movie will feature such talent as Alfie Allen, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, and Jacob Tremblay. read more

Arnold Schwarzenegger Unlikely to Return for 2018’s The Predator

So much for, “I’ll be back!”

Early reports are suggesting there’s no place for Arnold Schwarzenegger in Shane Black’s 2018 movie, The Predator. Actor Boyd Holbrook, who has recently been cast in a role originally reserved for Benicio Del Toro, told We Got This Covered the following:

“I’m currently working on Predator. It’s not a sequel; Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of Predator [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, and rooted in something real. It’s real fresh. I don’t think you’re going to see [Arnold] Schwarzenegger. It would kind of make it a gimmick. It’s horror, science-fiction and a western.” read more
