Ever since Predator 2 released back in 1990, the Predator franchise has been pretty well dead. This is disappointing given the early promise that the Predator series seemed to show. Not even the Aliens vs. Predator franchise could deliver to us a really good Predator film.
You would think that Aliens and Predators getting together in a film would be a good idea. But what was done with the AVP franchise has been all but good. Plagued with bad acting, bad story lines and a PG-13 rating, the AVP franchise was a big disappointment, so much so, that those behind the Predator franchise realized that they had made a huge mistake on passing on a script that Robert Rodriguez wrote back in 1996 and allowed him to produce his script.
So was it worth it? And was it a good idea to reboot the Predator franchise? Based on the above trailer I think we can safely say that it’s a yes to both questions. Not only does the trailer look interesting, they have opted to go with an all-star cast of actors. Gone are the bad actors of the AVP series and in are actors like Adrien Brody, Lawrence Fishbourne, Topher Grace, and Danny Trejo. This is definitely looking to be a movie not to miss this summer.
Hopefully Predators will be the movie we are hoping for and not the disappointment named AVP. So what are your thoughts? Do you like the trailer?
