The Predator Teaser Trailer is Disappointing

The moment you’ve been waiting for wasn’t really worth it.

By Jay Gervais

The teaser trailer for 20th Century Fox’s The Predator was released yesterday and it’s really quite underwhelming. This writer understands that it's only a teaser, but it doesn’t do much to excite this long-time fan of the series. Have a look for yourself above and make your own judgment.

The Predator is about a young boy who accidentally triggers the return of the lethal hunters to Earth after toying around with a piece of their technology. When a Predator ship crash-lands on the planet, a small town is turned upside-down and it falls to a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers, along with a disgruntled science teacher, to save the world. However, as they will come to learn, they are ill-prepared to fight these stronger, smarter, and deadlier Predators.

The films main cast includes Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Trevante Rhodes (Westworld), Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key (Keanu), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Sterling K. Brown (Black Panther), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Thomas Jane (The Expanse), Augusto Aguilera, Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter), and Jake Busey (Starship Troopers).

The Predator is set for a September 14th release and will also be coming out in 3D. While the film wasn’t originally intended to be in the format, it was later converted to 3D in post-production. The film is directed by Shane Black (Iron Man 3), who is no stranger to the series as fans might know him for playing Hawkins in the first film.
