Shane Black’s Predator reboot will arrive in theaters this summer and we have some new info. Black made it clear in a tweet this past February that movie will be filled with violence by saying, “And, just to be clear…PG-13 is for pussies. Spines bleed…a lot.”

Here’s what we know:
This time the predator will be stalking the suburbs where it will go head to head with the cast that includes Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Jake Busey, Edward James Olmos, Trevante Rhodes, Augusto Aguilera, Alfie Allen, and Yvonne Strahovski.

Jane revealed last month a little about the characters, that they are military vets suffering from PTSD who meet a guy who thinks he’s seen a UFO and the group decides to hunt down the creature.

We’re all like ‘fuck that man, let’s go kill these fucking predators ourselves’ and we’re just crazy enough to believe that this guy really did see a UFO and there are some aliens out there,” Jane told Shadow Nation during a conversation.”


Stacey Snider, CEO of 20th Century Fox has said that the film will not only be about fighting, that it centers around “a little boy and his dad.”

The most recent news comes via Jake Busey, son of Gary Busey who co-starred in Predator 2. Jake plays the son of his real dad’s character in this movie, set after the events of Predator 2. A move that Black thinks will add a little something extra because of the connection.
Like the first film, this one will show off the Predator’s advanced technology and weaponry. Witness the epic battle between predator and soldiers when Predator opens in theaters on August 3, 2018. In the meantime, check out the new poster (below).
