The Predator – Official Trailer # 2

It goes without saying I didn’t particularly like the firsr trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator.

It played a bit too much like AVP: Requiem (which is insult enough) but for some reason felt the need to imply some kid somehow gained the ability to control a Predator space craft, which one-upped the former movie as far as really bad ideas go.

Which is weird because this most recent entry in the franchise was directed by Shane Black and written by him and Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, Monster Squad, Robocop 3), so at the very least we could have expected a clever story.

‘…ultimate Predator!?’ Wasn’t this terrain covered in 2010’s Predators (though to be fair it wasn’t done particularly well so I wouldn’t mind another visit to that particular space)?

As much as I don’t tend to be fond of violence for violence’s sake–I’m just dripping with contradictions–I have to admit that the latest trailer for Mortal Kombat X–featuring everyone’s favorite alien hunter/killer, the Predator–is all sorts of awesome.

Now if we ever got something this kinetic out of the movies then I’d think the Predator franchise would be absolutely huge.
