The Predator red band trailer, poster has Predator fighting a bigger Predator

June 26, 2018 1 min read

The new red band trailer for Shane Black's The Predator has all the blood and cursing you could ask for--in that it doesn't have much blood and cursing at all. What it does have, however, is the titular Predator facing off against an even bigger, grosser Predator that looks something like the monster from the end of Quarantine. Hopefully this won't be used as a hook to turn the regular-sized Predator into some sort of anti-hero that the humans need to help against the real evil.

This hits a lot of the right notes as a callback to an earlier era of action film where the original Predatorwould fit in, though. The second I saw that bigger Predator it was obvious that, yeah, that's an action figure. Sure, this movie might be a bloody romp for the big kids, but it has definite appeal to the younger audience that will catch it on cable later, if they don't have cool parents, and those kids will certainly go out and buy the toys. Who knows? Maybe The Predator will get a cartoon deal out of it, like RoboCop did.
