In The Predator's Debut Teaser Trailer, the Hunt Sets a Crash Course for Suburbia

By Beth Elderkin on at

It’s a real jungle out there, even in the suburbs. The debut trailer for The Predator is here, and things aren’t looking too good in this neighbourhood.

This soft reboot/sequel, which is directed by Shane Black (who played Rick Hawkins in the original Predator), takes the hunt from the jungle to the city outskirts. Rory McKenna (Jacob Tremblay), a young boy with autism, accidentally triggers the arrival of the Predator. But this isn’t your daddy’s Predator—these bad boys have genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species, making themselves stronger and deadlier than ever before. Luckily, we’ve got a ragtag team of ex-soldiers and Olivia Munn as a gun-wielding science teacher to save the day.

We weren’t too thrilled about the sneak peek that debuted at CinemaCon last month, and this trailer looks to be very similar to what was showcased. But we’re holding out hope that what we’re seeing now isn’t what we’re going to get in the end. The Predator arrives in cinemas September 14.
