The hunt begins once more in the first teaser for Dan Trachtenberg’s Predator prequel. Get ready to become the PREY!
*UPDATED* After this article was published, 20th Century Studios confirmed that the film will be R-rated, and will not be edited down for a PG-13 rating.
If there’s a movie franchise I can’t get enough of, it is the ‘Predator.’ franchise. I’ve loved it ever since the original film back in 1987. And despite the ‘AVP’ movies almost ruining it, it still continues to this day. We heard that Dan Trachtenberg was making a prequel to the original film, thanks to someone out there spoiling the surprise. We’ve been given small tidbits of information regarding the film. We know it’s not hitting theaters but going straight to Hulu. But now, we finally have our first look at what to expect. The first teaser trailer for the film, titled ‘Prey’ has been released. Hold your breath, he might hear you:
I’m not going to lie. I’ve got chills already! The return of that one ugly Motherf****r has me excited! After the tampering that was done to Shane Black’s movie, ‘The Predator.’, I’m hoping that we get an unaltered version of Trachtenberg’s film. I’m hoping that the studio doesn’t get involved and edit the film as they did with Black’s effort. There are already rumors that the film may be cut to achieve a PG-13 rating instead of the shot for R rating. But from this brief teaser, I can honestly say, I cannot wait for the Predator to stalk once again. And to become his ‘Prey’ once more!
‘Prey’ hits Hulu in the United States and Disney+ internationally on August 5th.
