Due to it underperforming at the box office, unfortunately, Shane Black isn’t just directing sequels to The Nice Guys for the rest of his career, Avatar-style. Rather, for his next project, he’s attempting to resuscitate a franchise with The Predator. Last appearing on screen in 2010 with Nimród Antal’s iteration, this film actually takes place prior to that, after Predator 2.
Ahead of a release this September, 20th Century Fox have now released the full trailer, which shows off the story of a boy accidentally triggering the hunter species to return to Earth. 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, see the trailer and poster below.
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.
The Predator opens on September 14.
