Original The Predator ending featured Ripley & Newt as Predator Killers!

Recently I had the chance to catch up with Shane Black and Fred Dekker's THE PREDATOR. I didn't think it was anywhere NEAR as bad as others had made it out to be. But I have to say the ending was a disappointment. SPOILERS TO FOLLOW. In the end, Boyd Holbrook and Jacob Tremblay are recruited by the government to research Predators and aliens, and they realize the nice Predator left them a gift called "The Predator Killer" (cool sequel title, huh?). The ending more than sets up the reveal of a xenomorph or a facehugger and then the chamber opens and we see... a lame suit.

Weak sauce.

But evidently, the filmmakers shot three different endings for the film, all variations of a "Predator Killer". The unused endings included Ripley from ALIEN and Newt from ALIENS. True story. The news was broken by artist Yuri Everson on Instagram and he shared pics of the project, showcasing a breather mask with moving "fingers" and "tail" that were deemed too facehugger-like on the day and were cut and removed by someone...

He writes regarding Ripley:

We shot 3 different endings for #thepredator, all variations of a "Predator Killer". This unused ending was Predator Killer Ripley wearing the breather mask we created for the film. You can see her name tag there on her costume. Breanna Watkins played Ripley under the mask instead of Sigourney Weaver. The moving "fingers" and "tail" were deemed too facehugger-like on the day and were cut and removed by someone...

He writes regarding Newt: 

...This unused ending was Predator Killer Newt aka Rebecca Jordan wearing the breather mask we created for the film. You can see her name there on the monitors. Breanna Watkins played Newt. The moving "fingers" and "tail" on the mask were deemed too facehugger-like on the day and were cut and removed by someone...

You can check out the posts showcasing the Facehugger Breathing Mask below and then let us know what you think! And after that remember that Shane Black and Fred Dekker's underappreciated sequel THE PREDATOR is now available on Blu-ray and you can snag a copy RIGHT HERE.
