You’re going to have to wait a little bit longer to see Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron’s Alita: Battle Angel and Shane Black‘s The Predator. 20th Century Fox has pushed both back on the release calendar (again), while setting news dates for two more upcoming projects...
As Shane Black works on his planned Predator reboot, details continue to leak out of the production. The latest concerns a new casting notice with greater significance than one might think – an Easter egg embedded in a specific actor’s mere presence. Friends, the Busey family legacy is about to be carried on by the next generation.
A new photo from the set of The Predator has made its way online, revealing our first look at the classic alien baddies in Shane Black’s highly-anticipated sequel along with a few of their human co-stars. But once you look past the obvious — these Predators are riding in a friggin’ TANK — there’s something particularly interesting about this pic, which could provide a clue to the film’s mysterious plot.
You’re going to have to wait just a little bit longer for the new Shane Black movie (or the new Predator sequel, however you want to look at it), as 20th Century Fox has officially pushed the release date for The Predator back a whole seven months — from February to August 2018. But good things come to those who wait, or at least that’s what I learned from a desk calendar filled with generic landscape photos.
Going in to a Shane Black movie, you’re aware of two things: you’re going to laugh (if you like Shane Black movies, that is) and people onscreen are going to die. Which makes a movie like The Predator a perfect outlet for him, because the entire premise of Predator revolves around a group of buddies who are being picked off one by one by a bloodthirsty alien. According to cast member Sterling K. Brown, just because Black is making a big studio blockbuster doesn’t mean that he won’t sprinkle in some of his patented “wicked sense of humor.”
Edward James Olmos is doing double-duty in the sci-fi genre. On top of reprising his Blade Runner character for Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming sequel, the Battlestar Galactica will get back into his military sci-fi roots with the new Predator.
