New pics highlight The Predator's updated armor

Looks like Shane Black and Fred Dekker's THE PREDATOR will be ditching his 80's-style fishnets for the upcoming reboot. In this new film, the alien hunter will be donning something hardier, fitted armor plating and a shiny new helmet. You can check out the new look at the updated armor below via two new pics.

Writer-director Shane Black:

The challenge became to make it frightening. ’Cause upon that hinged everything — whether you bought our heroes going up against him and felt a real threat for them. We had to invent a scenario in which the Predators were mysterious and scary again.

The pics below and the quote above come to us via Empire magazine. You'll be able to check out Empire's full coverage on the reboot of PREDATOR when the new issue hits newsstands on Thursday, July 12th. Until then, make sure to give the two new pics a look-see below.

And then remember that THE PREDATOR stars Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Tom Jane, Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Augusto Aguilera, Trevante Rhodes, Alfie Allen, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski. 

It follows this synopsis:

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, 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 young 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.

The new film is set to be released on September 14th. However, if you just can't wait until then for more Predator action, The Predator: Hunters And Hunted Official Movie Prequel is now available for pre-order over at Amazon and will be shipping out and hitting shelves officially on July 31st, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: I miss the ROCKY HORROR fishnets, personally.
