New The Predator TV Spot Shows Off “The Ultimate Predator”
The predators are fiercer than they have ever been, and we’ve got another look at them with the new TV spot for The Predator. Shane Black’s forte in his filmmaking career has been creating characters who unexpectedly develop deep bonds with one another. Think Val Kilmer and Robert Downey Jr. in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, or Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in The Nice Guys. Here, we meet the ragtag bunch tasked with saving the world from the predators’ invasion. “Ex-sniper with PTSD and a team that’s mental,” is how the trailer described the team. They aren’t supposed to work well together, but with Black at the helm, by the end of the film, we’ll want to join their bunch too.
But you’re all here for the predators, and they’re worth at least the price of admission. They have taken DNA from other species and used it to enhance themselves, going from being the deadliest predators in the universe to being nearly unstoppable. We get a glimpse of the “Ultimate Predator,” a freakish alien hunter much bigger than even the biggest, meanest ones we’ve seen before. The last shot of the trailer is of the ultimate predator seeing another, lesser, predator and throwing it down on the car windshield. If the ultimate predator can do that to a predator, imagine the damage it can inflict on us poor humans. We can’t wait to see how the humans take down the ultimate predator (if they can).
Here is the synopsis for The Predator:
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. 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 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 comes to theatres September 14.
