The Predator Will Hunt Six Months Later Than Planned

Posted on: April 25th, 2017

Over the weekend, 20th Century Fox announced a whole bunch of new and rescheduled release dates for upcoming films, including the Avatar sequels, although whether or not anyone’s still bothered about those only time (and box office) will tell. More interesting (and annoying) is that the studio has put back the planned release for Shane Black’s The Predator by a massive six months.

A sequel to the 1987 action/horror (in which Black co-starred with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers), the highly-anticipated film has for a while now been expected on February 9th, 2018. After Fox’s reshuffle however, we’ll have to wait until August 3rd, 2018.

That’s a long old wait, but everything we’ve heard so far suggests it’ll be worth it. First there’s the cast, which includes Olivia Munn, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Jane, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Augusto Aguilera, Keegan-Michael Key and stunt performer Kyle Strauts as The Predator itself. Then there’s the name’s behind the project; Black directs from a script by The Monster Squad/Night of the Creeps director Fred Dekker, while John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original — are on producing duties. And let’s not forget that, back in February, Black assured fans that the violence levels will not be toned down for wider box office appeal, saying: “…just to be clear… PG-13 is for pussies. Spines bleed… a lot.”
