Perhaps the boldest of all this year’s sequels – Predators seeks to continue a franchise that stopped in its solo tracks back in 1990. If you count the Alien Vs Predator franchise then of course the past 5 years or so has seen two of those movies (but we don’t count them!).
Predators, a bold new chapter in the Predator universe, shot under the creative auspices of Robert Rodriguez, stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realise they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the notable exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien predators.
Predators is out on 8th July.
