Predators sneak peek is online!

Mar. 12, 2010by: Dave Davis

Robert Rodriguez is unveiling some footage of his and director Nimrod Antal's sequel PREDATORS at the SXSW Festival in Texas, and he's kind enough to share some of it with us unfortunate humans who can't make it to Austin for the flicks, chicks, ribs and rock.

The movie finds several soldiers and killers snatched from Earth and deposited on the Predator's jungle world for a variation of "The Most Dangerous Game". No point in telling you it looks pretty cool, when you can see for yourself. Click badass Brody below:

Extra Tidbit: Those Predator dogs don't seem so silly now.

FORGET AVP'S

this movie looks sick...seems like he knew where he needed go with this. Director choice im not a fan of, but maybe we will see a reason why he was chosen because from what i have seen at SXSW this movie is SICK

Another pointless remake... If the original was somewhat poor or has dated very badly then I'm all for re-boots, but the original Predator was and is still, a classic. And much more to it than simply man versus alien hunter. Predators is going to be a massive waste of time. Even the predator lion, or whatever it is, looks like the beast from Avatar. Give us some original concepts hollywood!

It's not a remake, though. And I disagree that Predator was more tahn just "man versus alien hunter" - it really was, and that's why we loved it. It didn't get bogged down with all kinds of subplots that filmmakers try to jam into movies these days... which it does look like this one may even try to do. Hopefully it will be well handled.

I won't hold my breath for this. I have as much faith in Rodriguez and any director he hand picks as I do in Michael Bay to ever make something coherent. Still, at least the production quality looks decent and the set doesn't look like the garden department at Home Depot - I guess that's a plus.

NETFORCE:

Topher Grace can be seen briefly a couple times in the sneak peek, I think he's got short-cropped hair and glasses. There's apparently a "disgraced physician" character on the planet. I'm thinking it's him.

This is looking as promising as I had hoped. Love the cast. The predator hounds look surprisingly great, and I love the general concept. Bring. It. On.

This director is going to be so easy to lampoon if the movie sucks. Seriously...hiring a director named NIMROD is just a bad PR move.

Also did anyone else notice this movie is basically a rip-off of a movie called PREDATOR from 1987!?

This footage does look great, and the actors seem almost perfect for a predator reboot, prequel, whatever.

But Rodriguez's track record still is dead to me. I have yet to really like any of his films. They might be fun and good movies to get baked to, but as a 'good' movie, they usually fall short. Lets hope this is the beginning of better things from him.

but IGN gave KICK-ASS 5/5 stars. Now my expectations are extremely high. The slightest disappointment could be disastrous.

It is a good thing that a Oscars now give 10 Academy Awards for Best Picture of all time everyyear because Solomon Fucking Kane is going to win one and this will definitely win the other 9. But did anyone else think El Mariachis looks so scared? This is a man who leaves his wife who look so old for a Scream Boobs who turns your dick to cum just by looking at her. That is a dream of every man why is he not more happy? He must be so scared because this is a first movie he makes for more than $14.

Fuck the MPAA

If Robert Rodriguez is directing the new Predator, then hopefully it gets a hard R. The MPAA has no say in how movies are made anyway, they can only slap a label on it.

News on the trailer....

According to the studio, their first attempt at a trailer for PREDATORS was rejected by the MPAA for being way too violent. At the end of the trailer when the title logo fades away, the letter R was supposed to stay indicating to the audience that they're going for a rough, gritty R-rated movie. Unfortunately thanks to the MPAA, we won't see this now.

Two things

One - original PREDATOR title logo.

Two - Alan Silvestri's theme music.

Bring those back and you've just about sold me. Will hold off judgment until at least seeing the first full trailer.

To all the Haters

Don't knock the AvP series, they were just trying to appeal to a mass crowd...unfortunately by doing so, movies get a little mired from there original content. The AvP movies were ok, and of course the 1st Predator and the 1st 2 Aliens movies were pretty good...

Anyone got issues with the series, just read the Dark Horse books, or check out Giger's website (especially the Giger Bar).....

Looks like they are on the right track for a good predator movie finally. Any chance of Teri Weigel making a cameo in this one? I didn't think so either. Oh well, looks like it will be great anyway.

This looks very promising! At the very least, it looks better than AVP: Requiem which I couldn't see a thing - it was literally too dark. Did anyone see Topher Grace in the sneak peek? Just wondering how he looks in the role.

Cool Beans.

So far so good.
A Predator movie made by a director capable of a bit of depth. That's all I've wanted.

I was actually okay with the first AvP. Not a classic, but... okay.

But AvP Requiem was 100% polyunsaturated crap.

Honestly. I love the first two Predators. Hate AvP, and wouldn't mind AvP 2 is you could actually see anything that was happening on the screen.

I had given up all hope of a decent Predator film and thought I'd have to settle for a complete crappy Remake at some point. This however is music to my ears and look brilliant.

I cannot wait

Excuse me while I geek out...

I may think differently once I actually see it, but I exploded with joy from what we just saw. There’s not much I call myself a "fanboy" of, but I'm still very darn loyal to the first two Predator films to this day. Although the AVP films have deceived audiences twice, both being absolutely horrid in comparison to their predecessors.... I'm still holding out a glimmer of hope.

The predators, from what we've seen thus far, look terrific in here and the film has a similar look to the classic

I always said that I would be more than happy with the logo from the first two films, but this new one isn't bad at all. I say, perhaps it was time to freshen up the thing. I love they are keeping the promised opening date, that is a good sign of things working well with the movie. That "OVER HERE" quote almost killed me in the end....
