Fox debuted footage from The Predator and people loved it!

Fox debuted footage from The Predator and people loved it!

The first legitimate footage from Shane Black's The Predator was shown at CinemaCon during 20th Century Fox's panel and critics are saying the film looks damn good! Descriptions of the footage were also shared online, to give those of us who did not attend CinemaCon the chance to understand what took place. Read on for excerpts of what was shown, as recounted by the folks at GeekTyrant:

The scene cuts to the inside of the house where a young boy, played by Jacob Tremblay, finds a box that's all taped up by his front door from JP Courier Co. He takes it to his room where he proceeds to open it up and when he does he pulls out a Predator helmet and a few other alien artifacts. He starts to mess around with it and push a button on some kind of tech and it starts some kind of beacon that awakens a Predator ship in space.

Next up the scene progresses by having Tremblay messing around with some Predator tech, all the while cutting back and forth to a Predator ship which is now entering Earth's atmosphere and eventually crashing on Earth.

We then see Boyd Holbrook's character being interrogated about something he saw. He's not taking it seriously though and is joking around about seeing an alien ship. Then we get our first look at Sterling K. Brown's character, who happens to know that he did see an alien ship. Holbrook goes on to joke that he feels like "an alien" on his own planet.

Following that, some action-packed footage in the woods was shown, with subtle shots of the Predator slicing up people amongst a ton of gunfire. Then... some major plot details are revealed, as GeekTyrant explain:

We also get a look at Olivia Munn, who plays a scientist. She explains that this species of Predator is going from planet to planet and upgrading themselves with different kinds of DNA from the species that they conquered. She tells the military team that they pose a threat and Holbrook replies with, "posing a threat is kind of the fucking point."

From the sounds of it, the DNA splicing might not be as dramatic and strange as many of us initially thought. Those who attended the panel seemed to praise the overall look of The Predator so far, which is also reassuring. Check back often for more updates!

About The Predator

Shane Black returns to the Predator franchise to direct a new sequel to 1987's Predator! Officially titled The Predator! 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.

Is that a Sangheilian (elite) from the Halo series in the picture? But for me, it does not raise my interest, sorry...

I think this plot could be a bit Fishy.... but dont shoot it down yet.... lets hope the Predator Ship does not just Crash and it was Shot Down ;)

Sneak Peaks like this can just show off the Hype and Effects... and should be taken as Lightly as Trailers.... But each to their own.. i am going to go with this with a OPEN mind and Not Expect nothing Great.... and it may then Surprise Me ;)

Still pretty optimistic about this even before this information. Shane Black. That is all.

Can't help but feel more worried TBH...

The footage is so good and so cool that Fox has not released it online. Sony released their Venom trailer, yet Fox continues to perpetuate the negativity towards this movie through their inaction. Its time Black and Fox put their money where their mouth is and man up with a trailer for all to see.

I'm usually not an overly negative person, but I'm not sure how this plot even spells something decent to anyone ... everything that's come out about this movie so far sounds like someone tried to combine E.T. and Independence day while throwing Predators into the mix.
