By now, I’m sure that many of you reading this who share a love for intergalactic hunters known to have given the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover headaches in years prior are wondering just where the hell the first trailer promoting The Predator may be.
Previously, we’d been told it’d drop sometime in April, but I guess sometimes grownups say things to make us feel better. Well, actually, that did kind of ring true because footage was said to be shown to those fortunate enough to be in attendance at CinemaCon, which was described as containing “lots of blood, action and explosions.” In other words, that’s pretty much what you’d expect from this franchise.
As for the rest of us, we’ve been forced to wait for a time, but it seems like we won’t have to sit tight for much longer. I say that because Trailer Track now reports Germany’s FSK have officially rated the first promo heralding Shane Black’s entry into the franchise, and it’s being said that it’ll arrive next week!
Furthermore, there’s word circulating hinting the trailer will be shown alongside Deadpool 2, which opens in cinemas on May 18. Admittedly, the video will probably drop online a few days prior as is usually the case in these situations, but you have to admit that using one of the biggest movies of the year as a vehicle for promotion isn’t a bad idea in the slightest.
As for what to expect from the film itself, be sure to check out the official synopsis:
“From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, 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 young 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 arrives in theaters on September 14.
