No one would ever have heard of The Signal if it weren’t for Morpheus. Nice work!
Is this the new Bond? No.
Predator fans have been treated cruelly by its sequels. Predator 2 lost the quotable dialogue and tight pacing in a faintly ridiculous futuristic LA. Then there was the Alien vs. Predator films, whose tagline– whoever wins, we lose – may as well have been a review. So when producer Robert Rodriguez said that Predators would be to Predator what Aliens was to Alien, fans dared to hope that Predators may be the sequel they had been waiting for. So is it as good as Aliens? Inevitably no, and the weight of Rodriguez’s promise weighs heavy on a film that doesn’t know whether to break new ground or simply retread the original.
The latest film outing of He-Man has been languishing in development hell for longer than it takes to trim Battle Cat’s fur, but could the addition of two new writers be the shot in the arm this project needs? The writers of the upcoming Predators movie, Alex Litvak and Mike Finch pitched an idea for the film to Sony and have been snapped up by the studio.
The official trailer of the new Predators re-boot isn’t out till thursday (three days to go!), but if you’re too excited to wait for a little peek at the new film, you’re in luck! The official website has posted a sneaky preview of the trailer, with commentary by producer Robert Rodriguez.
