Amalgamated Dynamics (Studio ADI) have released another behind-the-scenes video showcasing a plethora of concept artwork for unused Aliens which were at one point supposed to escape the crashed Predator ship in The Predator (2018). Like the Emissary Predators, a variety of different concepts were created - some of which are very reminiscent of other sci-fi movie species like The Thing and Alien - but none of them made their way into the final cut of the film.
Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s early drafts of the script for THE PREDATOR called for a menagerie of alien creatures to break free from the crashed Predator spaceship. The idea was that a rogue group of Predators would extract DNA for their own use from a diverse group of specimens collected from across the galaxy. Our goal was to create designs that would not look like they came from a single source. To get a wide variety of concepts we brought in Brian Wynia, Ken Barthelmey, Luca Nemolato, Jordan Morris, Farzad Varahramyan, Adam Dougherty and Tim Martin.
As a side note, Shane and Fred always try to work a spider with a human head into every project they can. They’re like that. Our job was to try to make one look cool!
Check out the video below and let us know what you think of these concepts in the comments section!

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.
