Fox Might Announce New PREDATOR Project at Comic-Con [UPDATED]

     July 15, 2013


2010′s Predators was a fun little B-movie, and although it was a modest hit, it didn’t provide the blockbuster returns that would prompt 20th Century Fox to seriously revive the franchise.  However, it looks like Fox hasn’t given up the cloaked and dreadlocked alien hunter just yet.  For people who still followed Predators on Facebook, they were given a new message this weekend—a line from 1987′s Predator: “There’s something out there waiting for us, and it ain’t no man…We’re all gonna die.”  The image is a top-down, thermal view of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter.  Unlike everyone else with a Hall H panel, Fox stayed quiet on the information they provided to Comic-Con organizers, but THR is reporting that the studio will be bringing The Wolverine, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and a “surprise”.  I don’t know if X-Men: Days of Future Past could be considered the surprise since even director Bryan Singer has mentioned a Comic-Con appearance for his movie.  The surprise could be the recently announced X-Force, or it could be the return of Predator.  Personally, I think either film would go over huge with the crowd.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  Fox’s Comic-Con panel is from 4:15pm to 5:45pm on Saturday, July 20th. [Update: Hero Complex reports that Fox will actually be announcing a 3D Blu-ray release for Predator, not a new film.]

    Honestly – my money is on not a “new” Predator movie, but the official first look at their 3D conversion of the original Predator. After the first movie, 2, “ers” and the AVP series there aren’t a whole lot of other places this franchise can go. It’s kind of played out I hate to say.

    The whole first chunk of the movie felt like a ripoff of Predator. And you know what? I didn’t mind that a ton. It offered nothing new, but it was an ok enough movie up until the point they pissed in the face of a classic movie monster by making it the litter brother of a “bigger and badder” version. Talk about cliche sequel.

    I’m looking forward to this. Predator’s one of the best designed alien.


    We still have not officially had our Predator-3 yet, as in name. I despise both the AVP movies and don’t count them as official for either franchise, especially requiem.
    Predators was kinda ok for the most part, though the casting was weird.

    I say bring Predator back to the quality of the first, and second. Maybe bring back Arnie as a veteran that has his experience. Hell, i’d even be game for a Rambo vs Predator, but just for fun. Or at least have Sly as a lead. Oh and lose the over the top Predator designs too such as the one in the image above. Looks the the dsigners got bored.

    They could be making a show but it will need a good director for the
    pilot. I hope they make this better because nothing tops the first one!
    PREDATORS was one of those movies they just put out there it was a disappointment at the most so I say re-up!

    Given the fact that Arnie said he’d been offered a part in a new predator when he returned to acting, my money is on a new Predator. I have always thought it would be good for one in the snow. The setting of Antarctica for AvP 1 was the only redeeming feature of the entire movie. I certainly don’t think they can return to the jungle, it’s been done to death. It needs to be something fresh.

    2010′s Predator was a piece of garbage and an insult to the 80′s classic movie.

    A good story and Duane Johnson starring will put it back on the map.
