20th Century Fox has debuted the first official trailer for Robert Rodriguez & Nimród Antal’s Predators, the reboot of the classic action series that first hit theaters in 1987. Although we featured a rather exciting sneak peek at the movie with all kinds of behind-the-scenes footage just last week, this is the trailer you’ve all been waiting to see.
There was a lot of concern that Rodriguez couldn’t pull this off, but I definitely think he might have done just that, as this looks awesome and I’m looking forward to seeing it this summer. I love the characters, I love the jungle setting again, I love Laurence Fishburne and Adrien Brody – so bring it on!
Predators is being directed by Nimród Antal, of Kontroll, Vacancy, and Armored previously. The screenplay was co-written by newcomers Michael Finch and Alex Litvak and is based on early draft written years ago by producer Robert Rodriguez, who also worked with them on the script. This is a reboot of the Predator series created by Jim & John Thomas and directed by John McTiernan in 1987. We’re not sure what the actual plot is, but all we need to know is that it’s about a bunch of badass elite warriors who fight a bunch of predators out in the jungle. 20th Century Fox is bringing Predators to theaters everywhere on July 7th this summer.
