Right in time for Deadpool 2‘s release next week, we are delighted to report that the first trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator is now in the can and ready for an imminent launch. The piece was rated this afternoon by the German FSK and is expected online in the next week
, if not in the next few minutes (if our previous experience with 20th Century Fox trailer classifications is to go by).
UPDATE: Cast members Trevante Rhodes and Jake Busey have shared new stills of their character on Twitter, teasing something dropping tomorrow (Thursday)…
Keep your eye out on our feeds, we’ll be sure to have the first look as soon as it drops online. In the meantime, check out some of the quite varied reactions to the footage screened at CinemaCon last month – which may or may not be the piece premiering publicly as the first trailer.
I’m curious to see the reactions to this trailer when it arrives, and I’m particularly curious to see if everyone else seems as unclear on the film’s plot. Of course a trailer uploaded to the internet can be watched over and over again, dissected until it makes sense, whereas the CinemaCon audience was only shown the footage once (and in between trailers for half a dozen other movies), but…I dunno! I’m excited for this movie, and hope y’all will be, too. – Scott Wampler, BMD
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
Starring Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey and Yvonne Strahovski, the film is released September 13 in the UK, followed by the U.S. on September 14.
