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.
Shane Black (Iron Man 3) co-wrote and directed the new Predator installment that gets back to the roots of the franchise. He should know how it all began. He had a role in the first one with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The new Predator moves from the South American jungle to rural America — Macon-Bibb county, Georgia.
Boyd Holbrook (Logan villain) is the new Schwarzenegger as Special Forces commando Quinn McKenna who’s questioned about a mission gone wrong where his men were torn apart by a Predator. McKenna sends some alien gear home to his son Rory played by local sensation Jacob Tremblay. Rory opens the gear and accidentally sends out a signal to the aliens.
Here’s a Predator at Rory’s school played by east Vancouver’s Templeton Senior School.
Olivia Munn is science teacher Casey Bracket.
The Predator poster is in the shape of you-know-who.
