Surprised there isn't a dedicated thread on this yet, I looked 10 pages and saw nothing besides Deadpool. Anyways looks amazing to me, I grew up with the first two predators and this movie combines the best of both worlds. A bunch of short videos giving you insight to the different characters as well as actual footage.

And for a little humor. Enjoy.

The movie looks kick ass. But i'll probably wait for the DVD. (Fuck you, I don't have Blue Ray yet)

I just read that Rodriguez has said its a sequel to Predator 1 and 2. They basically forget those crappy Alien Vs. Predators flicks even exist.

I'm pretty excited for this. If they have a midnight showing I'll have to go. I want to see it with a big crowd.

All they had to do for the AvP movies was literally copy the AvP2 computer game.. Most people never played it, the game was fucking tight..

It's at 100% on RT but with only 5 reviews in. I really hope this is a good movie.

I really don't believe in early reviews, if you read those reviews they're so straight forward that just from the trailers and information I got from IMDB I could piece them together. I think this'll score over 50% in the long run though, not for everyone but a definite improvement over what we've been given for the last decade or so.

Couple of good lines.

Beyond its spectacular effects and mega-budget, it's good old fashioned entertainment of the B-movie kind, with a strong premise, nicely drawn characters and ace performances from a team of actors spearheaded by Adrien Brody, that make us give more than a damn.And they got a damn good composer. Debney scored Passion of the Christ. PUMPED!

It's edge of the seat stuff with John Debney's pounding music score enhancing the massive stunts, superb cinematography, lighting and strong production elements.

Yeah if you see the site videos you'll notice that in the actual footage clips that are a minute long each, that they use a very similar, if not exactly the same, music score. As well as in the red band trailer they have the glowing eyes. I have a feeling this is gonna be like How To Train Your Dragon, I'll keep telling everyone its a great movie and nobody will believe me.

Terminator Salvation had solid early reviews and we know how that sucked

It's got Adrian Brody and Laurence Fishburne, which is a good start. Looks more like the suspenseful "Aliens"-type of film, with a whole "The Most Dangerous Game"/"Running Man" subplot mixed in. I won't except Shakespeare, but it should be a good two hours of jump-in-your-seat gore and gunfighting, which is always nice on a hot summer day.

Yea, its criminal whats become of the R rating. Same thing happened with the last Die Hard.

Studios figure that PG-13 movies make more $$$ so they rarely make blockbusters with an R rating anymore.

i thought it was pretty good, not spectacular. Most of the suspense parts were predictable, and the special effects looked like they were out of a b-movie, but i still thought it was solid

WTF, this movie was trash! I saw this with five young dudes (no homo) and they all demanded that I reimburse (sp?) them.. Great plot idea in general and I liked the characters at certain points (the African, Yakuza and Laurence Fishburne mainly), but it needed more action!

********SPOILERS BELOW***********










The Yakuza swordfight with the Predator, main character dude chopping the alien dog in half, and right before the two Predators (although the fight itself was gay) were about to throw down were pretty bad ass

The thing I didn't like in the movie was when the female Israeli sniper was discussing the events of the 1987 version of the Predator. They should've kept that out to make this more a stand alone movie, and how did she get the privilege and clearance to know of these events she is of the Israeli army.

How is that even a twist? It had literally no effect on the plot line. Oh no, he's a psychopath. Had it been revealed he was working with the predators or something, or he in fact was a predator himself, or he was an Alien, or he was Ripley from Alien...yeah, that would have been a twist. It was just stupid.

"[The studio] said, 'Let's do some other ones. What other story ideas do you have?'" says the filmmaker. "Because it was like, let's test out the market with this one. They really wanted it to be pretty contained, pretty scaled-back. They didn't want to put too many of the ideas into it that we could save for a second one. So we could see what the appetite was, because the bigger movie would actually be what comes following that. That kind of sets up a new storyline, new location and world, and then you can really go crazy from there."

Good flick, watched it a few weeks back. They really tried to copy the vibe of the 1st movie and for the most part were pretty successful.

I thought Adrian Brody did a nice job of being a touch guy. Glad they went in a different direction that the muscled up tough guy.

this movie sucked, not one original frame in the movie. A cobbled together amalgamation of the original Predators and every sci-fi movie ever. You know you are in for lazy film making when you see the lame digital Predator hunting dogs. Poor Adrien Brody can't seem to get a decent offer.
