THE PREDATOR is on its way

The Predator's trailer has got our full attention. Fox’s reboot of the alien action franchise that launched in 1979, has returned to Earth in a bloody new red band trailer.

The narrative is set by Sterling K. Brown’s character, Will Traeger, who explains, “I’m in acquisitions. I look up and catch what falls out of the sky.” The footage features several shots of the violent extraterrestrial hunter, who brings chaos to the suburbs. Brown’s character then warns: “Predators don’t just sit around making hats out of rib cages. They conquered space. That’s not what is on the horizon.” (via Variety)

Shane Black’s new installment follows the titular aliens, who return to Earth, deadlier than ever before after taking the DNA of other species.

“I think that there’s a basic premise that has to be honored every time you make a Predator film and that’s in some way, whatever the plot turns out to be, it has to, at some level, represent a hunt,” Black said in an interview with Slashfilm. "We just tried to take the existing mythology and take it a step further. Ask some questions about why? Why Predators do what they do? What would be the next step for them? How do we up the stakes so that there’s not just a single Predator hunting a group of soldiers? Who are the soldiers? How are they different? What’s the heroic quotient and how do you make it not just guys with tough talk and big arms?", the director explained.

Black is directing from a script he co-wrote with Fred Dekker. John Davis produces. The cast also includes Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski. The cast and filmmakers will release new footage of the film at San Diego Comic-Con.

The original “Predator” was directed by John McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, and Jesse Ventura as commandos attempting to rescue hostages while being stalked in a jungle in Central America by a fearsome extraterrestrial, played by Kevin Peter Hall.

The new Predator will be in theaters on September 14.

Check out the teaser below.

The official synopsis reads:

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
