Final Trailer for The Predator Released
Get ready for a wild ride.

20th Century Fox has unveiled a brand-new trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator and it’s actually pretty awesome. Strap yourselves in and check it out above.
We can see some new footage here, aside from the various clips and TV spots that have been releasing periodically in the last few weeks. There are plenty of character interactions going on in this trailer, which is pleasant to see and it’s clear this band of “Loonies” are going to be a highly entertaining bunch.
Shane Black wasn’t kidding around when he said this was going to be an event film and it’s looking to be that way in what we’ve seen so far of the film. We’ve got Predators fighting humans and their own kind, a twice-the-size Ultimate Predator, nasty-looking and hungry Predator dogs, aircrafts and spaceships battling it out, and plenty of over-the-top violence to satisfy all your entertainment needs. This movie isn’t holding back at all.
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 film stars Boyd Holbrook as Quinn McKenna, Trevante Rhodes (Westworld) as Williams, Jacob Tremblay as Rory McKenna, Keegan-Michael Key (Keanu) as Coyle, Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse) as Casey Bracket, Sterling K. Brown (Black Panther), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones) as Lynch, Thomas Jane (The Expanse) as Baxley, Augusto Aguilera as Nettles, Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter, Mass Effect 2) as Emily, and Jake Busey (Starship Troopers) as the son of Keyes.
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. Obviously the film will be rated R, which was never any doubt after seeing all the footage we have seen. The Predator lands in theaters for September 14th and will also be coming out in 3D.
