It’s been more than 30 years since Shane Black (Iron Man 3) performed in the original Predator as a soldier named Hawkins, a.k.a. “the first dude killed by the Predator.” And now he’s returning to the franchise as the director and co-writer of the latest installment, ushering in an even deadlier new era for the universe’s most lethal hunters! This time around the Predators have been upgrading themselves using local DNA from each planet they visit, making them more dangerous than ever. Which means it’s really not a great time for a little boy to trigger their return to Earth from his suburban home. The fate of the humanity rests in the hands of a ragtag group of ex-soldiers … plus one disgruntled science teacher (aren’t they all?).
The Predator boasts a star-studded – yet ragtag! – cast, including Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski.
