Sneak Peak of New Predator Movie

Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal, producer and director of the movie Predators, have shown the first footage from the film at the South by South West Festival.

Sadly, it's only a couple of minutes, but there's still plenty in there. Rodriguez admits that trying to upstage the original Arnold Schwarzenegger move would be a fool's errand, so took the film in another direction.

The footage, set in dark and creepy jungle, looks like it is taking the series back to its roots, while expanding on the mythos and adding something new to the mix. It's an interesting watch, not just to see parts of the movie, but to get a sense of the philosophy that has gone into making it.

Predators is released on July 7th.

Oh so that guy from the Matrix is gonna be in it. Well... Should be good. What do you think Calumon?

Calumon: I think we should get Ice cream.

I may go to see this, it looks like it may be enjoyable and exciting. Also, is it just me or does Laurence Fishbourne speak very quietly in his roles?

I must see this on opening day.

I want this to work so bad.

It's because if he spoke any louder his awesomeness would cause your skull to implode.

It's looks interesting, my only problem is, however, are they going to be mowing down predators? Because if they are then I fear they might have made the predators weaker, but I guess I'll have to wait and see.

It cant be worse than the Alien vs Predator movies.

This looks awesome, I sure as hell hope it doesn't disappoint, or I will kill several people.

Awesome.

My concern is that, with so many preadators chasin' them, the Predators in this film will either completley destroy all the humans in the first ten minutes, or they'll be a very weak bunch of wannabe predators that screw up all the time

I'll admit this is one film I may venture into the cinema to see. I just hope it's not going to be a watered down mess like AvP was. Let's hope this film does better. :)

I'm not a big fan of Predator, but I definitely can't await for this to be in my local bargain bin!

Why isn't this just Predator 3? There was nothing wrong with the Predator movies - on their own. It was when they started pairing them off with the Alien franchise, which had long since collapsed, that things started going bad. Why does everything need to be rebootted?

Well, to me, this is definitely "Predator 3".

I'm purposely not going to watch this clip. Nor am I going to follow any updates on the movie and I hope to avoid the trailer in the coming months (this'll take luck; I'm sure plenty of theater chains will be showing these trailers soon). I want to walk into this movie knowing nothing more than the cast. I'll get a more pure experience that way.

oooo! I think i may acctually go see it

Just like Morgan Freeman.

I'm mildly enthused for this movie now. It looks like an actual attempt to do something GOOD with the series.

YAY, I'm in it!
<-- see!

That will be awesome, I promise guys, I won't fail you.

seems exciting! I just hope that there isn't just one hero and all the others characters are just squirty puchingbags to be delt with in the most viceral way. Like the first Alien vs Predator. you get to know like 25 (pretty interesting) people and within 30 minutes everyone's dead except 2 guys (who weren't really the most intereting ones either). that sucked : (

EDIT: the guy on the front of the clip kind of looks like Bear Grylls! Ultmate Survial indeed...

I need this film to be good. Having said that, can you see yourself quoting it a decade later like the original?

That's Funny:

Understandable, and much like what happened between Alien and Aliens. But I have some high hopes, it can't be worse than the AVP movies, and it looks like it will be a return to the classic Predator, only with less Arnold. I'm excited, and the best part of it is, when this comes out, I will actually be able to go see it! (that is, if they keep it R and not some watered down PG-13 movie like AVP was)

I don't think it's necessarily a reboot. It's just doing the "Aliens" thing in that it's a sequel, but instead of having "3" at the end, they just make it plural.

Pleaaase be good. Since they are making it as something of a reboot I'm hoping they can impress.

Marked my calendar, buying this shit on blu-ray.

Same. For once I would love to see something decent come from Preador...rather than the versus films

Looks good actually. Good thing they didn't try to just remake the first one, and are going a different rout.

Besides, Predator 2 sucked. Forgetting that movie was ever made is a good idea.

So predator hunting dogs? Interesting. Some of the choices implied by this are interesting.

In the first movie it was obvious that everyone but Arnold and the chick were red shirts. They fleshed them out anyway, which was good, but it was stupid to think that it would not be whittled down to just Arnold before the end, and that Arnold would live. In this, they seem to be trying to keep you guessing as to who will live. I hope they don't just play against cliche like in Deep Blue Sea where people died and lived when you weren't expecting it. Here they seem to be keeping the team together with each member of equal importance. That could add some suspense.

Hopefully it pays off, but we'll see in July.

Agreed:


Still, I've been looking forward to this for a while, and this didn't disappoint. Has some really great potential, and hopefully it turns out good.

So it looks like this predator has a predator dog.

I had no idea this was even being made.

well this was kept quiet, looks awsome though!

Im with you on that, except I saw the vid at the top

There's a way I can help you avoid that. Watch Uwe Boll's BloodRayne 3 (Yes, someone's giving this man money to make another movie) right before you see this. Your expectations will be so condierably lower that this movie could not dissapoint.

True story.

I rented Alone in the Dark to finally get around to watching a Uwe Boll movie. My gf at the time rented Doogal, which is known as Magic Roundabaout everywhere else. The American version is much, much worse than the European version. We watched Doogal first and it was so bad that Alone in the Dark was enjoyable by comparison.

I'm not going to look forward to this but I am interested in where it's going.

Indeed, the uncoordinated civilians in Aliens fair much better than the uncoordinated civilians in Alien. Wait, what?

sounds like an interesting return to the series roots. And Lawrence Fishburne is just the cherry on top.
