Feeling a little bummed that you couldn’t make it to SXSW this year? Feeling even worse because the people that did get to go got a sneak peak at Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming Predators film? Well, you can start feeling a little better because The Flickcast has you covered!
Fox was nice enough to post the premiere footage online for everyone to see and it looks pretty darn awesome. Directed by Nimród Antal, Predators follows the same kind of plot as the first film but with a fresh take on the subject matter:
“Official Plot Synopsis: Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.”
The synopsis sounds bad ass enough, but when you watch the clip you’ll certainly get that original Predator vibe (which is a good thing in this case). Predator 2 and subsequent films involving these intergalactic hunters really haven’t cut it (no pun intended) in my opinion. As such, it’s great to see Predators get back to the roots of this interesting character/creature.
Predators are set to invade movie theaters July 7, 2010. Click through to check out the sneak peak.
