I am in the "this could be awesome" camp. Pretty varied cast, I think it has a lot of potential.

Christ. Maybe the predators will kill an elephant and only eat part of the trunk then throw the rest away.

I know these 2 guys attempt at taking down the Predator was pathetic, but I don't care. Give them another chance.




Indeed, they weren't really killed - just poisened darted amd shipped off to Pred land.

Those are pretty cool. I like the simplistic look of them. They had way too much shit in the AVP movies and Predators are supposed to be athletic, move really fast through any situations.

Also, Brody looks pretty bad-ass, didn't expect that from him.

I want this to be good... but is this the same one where I read a script review that contained predator dogs and cats?

Yeah, the Preds look athletic and ripped without looking like steroid users. Although, I think the AvP pred look was mainly an issue with the armor they were wearing which was incredibly bulky.

Will keep an eye out on this one. The first trailer should hopefully be a good sign of things.

Lots of things in scripts sound very stupid on paper. It's all about the execution.

There's no way in hell will this surpass the original. It's just no possible.

This movie will bleed.......if it can bleed, we can kill it.

The only thing that I think could be silly about the movie is the gross multiplication of enemy. Its okay in Aliens, because in Alien it wasn't a team of marines facing off against one Xenomorph. In this case, one Predator pretty much decimated an entire special ops team of the toughest motherfuckers around in the first one, so they're either going to seriously nerf the Predators or make these guys pull some unbelievable shit.

Where's Goggins?! And no way Trejo goes first, that's going to be Goggins for sure. Just to show that Rodriguez and Nimrod have no idea what they're doing.

This is an example of somebody who obviously never watched PREDATOR.

Pfft, i just watched it on AMC the other day in fact. I don't care about the human protagonists. I just want to see Predators maiming and killing.

In fact, if somebody would make me an avatar gif of 21s - 23s I would be in their debt.

Predator's one of my favorite movie of all time and with some many great scenes, this is one of the tops. Dutch declaring the start of the final battle between him and the Pred. Just awesome.

Uhhhhhhhhh....

Maybe I'm reading too much into the pose and body-shape, but is that middle one a female predator? The boots even look a bit like heels.


You're right.

BUT YOU LIKED TRANSFORMERS.

This movie is bullshit, the casting is bullshit, and the script is bullshit.

If any of you spend money to see this, you're an enabler.

Predator is no Citizen Kane on paper either. And yet it is the Citizen Kane of manliness on screen.

i dont understand what the fuck half of you are on about

the easy route with this would have been casting a bunch of wrestlers in. instead they put in a bunch of pretyy manly dudes who could pass for genuine soldiers

the predators look great too. kind of like intergalactic masai warriors. this film is going to fucking rock

Yeah I don't know why everyone always wants shitty actors who look more like Mr. Universe contestants than real-life soldiers in their action movies. 'Aliens' had guys like these and it's probably the best sci-fi action movie of all time.

Brody's great. I'm interested.

I'd rather have Hicks and Hudson in this movie than that pretty boy up above. Fuck, even the latino girl and Ripley in Aliens were manlier than this weenie.

I'm sure he'll be bulking up. Some of you sure are aching to see some big bulging muscular dudes with their shirts off...

The Predators look poor, they have continued in the bobble head tradition started in the second film.

The by far looked the best in the original film. The more appropriate sized skull and Kevin Hall's sheer size under the costume made a truly scary and powerful looking creature.

It must be too hard to find actors that tall these days.

This movie has no chance at approximating the badassness and manliness of the original.

no movie does, to be fair. :p

By the pictures on this page, I like where this is going. I'm hoping that the firefights and encounters in this will be able to create a feeling similar to that of District 9's. Just in the jungle this time. Brody's looking like a simple man, totally not expecting encounters with these creatures. I hope that will create a believable tension between the creatures and the rest of them and make this movie damn enjoyable.
