20th Century Fox has just released a sneak peek at the upcoming “Predators” movie which premiered at SXSW on Friday. In this 2 minute promo, producer, Robert Rodriguez gives us an insides look at director, Nimród Antal’s reimagining of The Predator franchise. It’s a quick behind the scenes presentation that doesn’t give us enough of an assement on the films potential awesome-ness but does show some rather impressive looking footage. We do get glimpse of the mercenary unit lead by Adrien Brody and teases of the Predators themselves, which look potentially more freightening then ever. Except for maybe that bizarre dog like Predator, that was just dumb.
The talent involved in this movie makes me cautiously optimistic. Will it deliver? who knows but someone has to get this franchise right eventually so why not this time.
Official Plot Synopsis: Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers, mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.
