Film Maker Gives Predator a Minecraft Makeover

Film Maker Gives Predator a Minecraft Makeover

With a few new textures and some new animation, Minecraft becomes the perfect home for an invisible, murderous alien.

A Lithuanian Minecraft enthusiast, known only as SS Lithuania, has fused the game's digital building blocks with the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, Predator. It's an inspired combination, not to mention a heck of a lot of fun to watch.

The video opens with the predator surveying the jungle. With a few button presses on his wrist computer, he shifts to a different vision mode, and spies a lone lumberjack, working away on a tree. A few more button presses and he's invisible and ready to begin the hunt. Naturally, the lumberjack doesn't stand a chance. The predator races across the jungle canopy, and ambushes the man in his subterranean wood shop. The predator takes the lumberjack's head, and adds his skull to his collection.

The movies seems to be a combination of texture packs, for elements like the skulls, and CGI, for things like the decapitation animations. It's remarkably well done and is surprisingly cinematic, thanks to the cuts from first-person to third-person shots. Hopefully, SS will continue to work his or her way through the classic Arnie movies, because a Minecraft Terminator would be a lot of fun to watch.

I don't even know what Minecraft officially is and this is pretty amazing. Especially for one guy.

Why do I get the feeling the predator never has any problems facing the monsters after dark.

does anyone else want this in minecraft, coz i sure do!!

Awesome! Now someone make Minecraft Aliens!

loan lumberjack,

Got a typo there, so you know!

The special effects were darned good.
Does anyone else want skull blocks for regular minecraft now?

That was awesome. Gotta love old pincer face.

I know I do! :D

Jesus buttfucking Christ. This game is getting more amazing the more we hear from it. It's unbelievable and keeps impressing me. Totally loved the animation and texture work.

Keep up the good work!

That as a mode would kick ASS. 1 predator VS. a load of players who must set dastardly traps and craft weaponry.

Wow, minecraft has so many applications, maybe we should all consider just moving our life forces into the minecraft world, as it seems we can make whatever we want in there..

I didn't think anything could top the video itself.

You have proven me wrong.

That was pretty awesome

Can't wait for propper and robust modding support, im going to go crazy with competative modes.

Someone has too much time on their hands. Really, do we need any more of this stuff on youtube, it-

Hey, the guy wasn't armed! He wasn't valid prey...c'mon, an axe he is using to chop a tree down totally doesn't count, and the predator attacked him while he was carving wood.

That's so not right.

The Heroes of might and magic 3 music in that made it for me.

No problems with any of them. Except the creeper of course. It could smell a cloaked predator from over 20 blocks away, and zoom in for the boom.

Naw man, he just means the lumberjack was on loan from the next forest over.

Man I would really like to see a dense jungle like that in the game.

Why is this newsworthy? Haven't we had about ten other stories of "OMG, SOMEONE MADE [x geeky reference] IN MINECRAFT, CHECK IT OUT!!!" by now? Isn't there anything more interesting to report about than things people made in Minecraft?

No.
OT:I want to play this game now.

Right on! For a while I thought Media Monkey had opened or something.

1. Herobrine! He comes!
2. Love the theme

That's pretty awesome, and it reminds me that Minecraft could really use bona fide jungles, with exotic trees, wildlife and undergrowth. And Avatar-style floating islands. And airships. And motors (Etc, etc). The game's great as is, though, but it could become a true masterpiece.

BLOCKS FOR THE BLOCKS GOD! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL WALL!

Sorry, I'll leave now...

I vote Junior

It beats the "have I told you I hate EVIL PIRATES today?" spam that invariably degenerate in a circejerk where actual discussion is banable.
