‘Venom’ Sets a New October Record at the Weekend Box Office

Despite primarily negative reviews and the lack of other spider-characters to rely on, Sony’s Venom set box office records this weekend, earning over $80 million in receipts.  Venom now holds the record for the highest grossing 3-day opening in October, defeating the previous record holder (Gravity) by almost $25 million dollars.

This total is even more impressive considering that Venom’s current aggregate score on Rotten Tomatoes is only 32%.  The film has performed better with fans however, who gave the nasty symbiote a B+ on Cinema Score and a 89% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.  Venom should see a steep decline next weekend, but with few superhero-related properties on the horizon, the film will certainly improve on its already healthy take at the box office. read more

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!

The new trailer shows off writer/director Shane Black’s new cast as a band of aggressive hunks with cavalier attitudes, similar to the bunch from the original 1987 movie.

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 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. read more

Fox Unveils Official Teaser Trailer for ‘The Predator’

Some lucky fans got a sneak peak at some footage from director Shane Black’s upcoming film, The Predator at CinemaCon late last month, and now the rest of us get to see what all the fuss is about! Featuring clips which fit the description of what was described of the CinemaCon reel, the trailer reveals a few brief glimpses of the new title creature and some context of the story of the movie itself.

The teaser begins with a shot of a boy (played by Jacob Tremblay) who opens a very special package which seems to contain a little more than his latest Amazon Prime order. The rest of the trailer sets the stage of the Predator’s gory return to Earth. You can watch the clip below and catch all of the monster mayhem for yourself: read more

‘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
