First Trailer for ‘The Predator’ Is Kind of Meh

The first trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator has been released, and I have to be honest with you, it’s pretty uninspiring. Maybe it’s because you don’t get many shots of the Predator, or the suspect acting of the human cast, but nothing about this trailer got me excited about the film.

The premise is also strange. It appears that a kid opens a box that for some reason has a Predator mask in it, and a gauntlet. The kid opens the gauntlet and pretends to fly it around, which in turn actually starts a Predator ship that then crash lands on Earth. It’s then revealed that the Predators are now enhancing themselves, so it sounds like in this world the Predators are a known entity, so it must tie back to the first two movies.

This movie looks and feels very much like AVP 2, which was fun due to its silly gore, but not great. I don’t know, decide for yourself by checking out the trailer above.

The Predator hits theaters on September 14, 2018.
