Predators is one of my favorite sci fi franchises.
The first and second were great. The alien vesus predator ones were pretty shitty.

That is because they left all of the “baggage” behind when they made those movies…which proves there was more to the success of Predator and Aliens than the actual monsters themselves.
Alien is not Alien without Ripley/Bishop/Wayland.
Predator is not Predator without one lone bad ass in a sea of minor bad assery to stand against them.
There should ALWAYS be a Ripley/Wayland tie-in to any Alien movie (which is why the last VS movie “requiem” was the best but also the least seen because everyone gave up on it after the first VS movie).
This new concept is going back to the old school concept…which is what is needed. Topher apparently plays some guy who looks like a weakling but turns out to be a serial killer…which sounds cool to me if he can pull off the acting.
I think people are dreaming if they expect to see another Arnold in a movie like this even though whoever ends up being the last man standing had better be able to hold his own.
I’ll go see this because of what inspired it.[/quote]
I’m pretty excited to go see this one. It looks more like a bunch of rag-tag badasses brought together. Not all badasses where that badge on their foreheads. As Prof. X stated, I’m interested in seeing Grace’s character. A pretty prolific serial killer against a Predator…interesting. What Brody will bring to the table…interesting. And not all mercs are built like Arnold. Some of the scarier ones are built more like Brody. Just my two cents.
