Fox’s “The Predator,” a restart of the alien action franchise that launched in 1979, is returning to Earth in a bloody new red band trailer.
The scenario 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.”
Shane Black’s new installment follows the titular aliens, who return to Earth, now deadlier than ever before after taking the DNA of other species.
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 Predator” invades theaters on Sept. 14.
