Robert Rodriguez Enlists An Oscar Winner To Lead The Mercs In PREDATORS!

Beaks here...

Could he kick Dutch's ass? Probably not. I just hope he fights dirtier than he sails. By casting Adrien Brody in PREDATORS, producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimrod Antal have opted for an action lead somewhere between the ripped Arnold Schwarzenegger and the physically unspectacular Danny Glover. For those of you hoping Rodriguez and company would go the body-builder route (hey there, AB King!), they did bring in noted ass-kicker Oleg Taktarov! Is that enough beef for ya? According to Variety, Brody lobbied the hell out of Fox for the lead in this film. As is standard with any potential franchise, Brody has also signed on for an undisclosed number of sequels/prequels. This doesn't mean he's a lock to come back; it just means the studio is keeping its options open. We learned a week or so ago that Danny Trejo is also heading to the jungle to tangle with the universe's most ruthless hunters. He'll be joined by Alice Braga, Oleg Taktarov, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (thanks copy/paste!), Louiz Ozawa and THE SHIELD's Walt Goggins. All in all, not a bad team. I guess I'm optimistic. (Update: According to Bloody-Disgusting, Derek "Jason Voorhees" Mears is also on board. And Borys Kit at The Hollywood Reporter says Topher Grace is in negotiations.) PREDATORS will begin shooting shortly in Hawaii. Production will then move to Rodriquez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin. Currently, the film is scheduled to hit theaters July 9th, 2010.

    Was against it, but...

    if he lobbied hard for it? Shit, this isn't something he needs to do. This is a fanboy film, and if he's really that much a fanboy, fuck it. Let him in.

    gayest photo ever

    really. i guess Brody knows this will be a hit.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:31 p.m. CST

    Oh, I get it...

    by ScaryWaitress

    ...so this is going to be the soulful Predator installment. The hero (the admittedly dreamy Adrien Brody, but COME ON are you kidding me with this) is going to spend the whole movie staring balefully into the screen and then at the end, he and the Predator will be face to face, but Brody will be all conflicted, and the SpyKids will have to finish the job for him... because kids are basically little sociopaths anyway, you won't find THEM giving a moment's pause to contemplate right or wrong.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:31 p.m. CST

    Adrien Brody was good in

    by meta4

    Summer of Sam,King Kong (2005), The pianist, a couple others, I'm cool with that,Fuckin Walt Googins?! Good for him. This movie is sounding better and better each day. By default wouldn't it make YOU gay for thinking gay thoughts about a photo?

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:36 p.m. CST

    ...aw, come on guys, he can be the skinny guy that's...

    by ScaryWaitress

    ...good with knives and shit. You guys are just disappointed he isn't big enough to give you a titty fuck between his oiled pecks.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:36 p.m. CST

    The movie is going to focus on some stupid social morality tale

    by Particularly Hard Vato

    Or some shit- inner conflict between the characters, people resolving differences and dealing with the regret from their past wrongs... some soul-searching bullshit and the characters will argue about who is worse. Some feminist empowerment bullshit from the female chick. And it will suck. They had better focus on them being stalked and no actor-ish bullshit.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:36 p.m. CST

    Walter Goggins?

    by jdb1972

    Please tell me he's going to play the slimy CIA/State Dept puke who sells them out and not a soldier of any kind. Murdering yet honorable aliens defy credibility less than Goggins as anything remotely macho.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:37 p.m. CST

    This movie...

    by KillDozer

    At least they got an actor

    by gunnarcannibal

    That must mean this is going to be more than just a stupid loud movie like the last two AVP movies...but still, what they hell is he going to do? Why would a Predator want to go all mano a mano with Adrian Brody? Maybe he is just going to tell pussy jokes.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:50 p.m. CST

    WTF?

    by Action Hero

    Adrian Fucking Brody? Can't stand even looking at the guy. Just because he lobbied the studio suits he gets the job? Just proves how clueless Fox really is.

    Walt Goggins!

    by Bass Ackwards

    That's awesome. I feel like they'll probably waste him and kill him off early though.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:53 p.m. CST

    He's obviously going to be...

    by Chakraborty

    ...skinny brooding silent guy, as described in the script review. By announcing he's the lead, that means he's the one who survives to the end because the script review didn't describe a lead. So this news essentially spoils the movie. All the big badasses get killed, and brains wins over brawn, proving that the best predator is the smartest one, just as humans have dominated this earth even though we aren't the strongest species. And that sums up the next Predator movie.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:53 p.m. CST

    Will Brody snort the Predator into his cavernous nose?

    ...I was hoping for Linda Hunt. Or maybe even Marlee Matlin. Those girls could churn some serious Predator carcass.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:55 p.m. CST

    Oh dear god no! There goes my enthusiasm for this movie

    by bullet3

    This is supposed to be a badass throwback to the original predator, and they cast fucking Adrian Brody as the lead?! Danny Glover could kick his ass with one hand and foot tied behind his back. Just look at King Kong, he was the lamest hero character imaginable, not an ounce of testosterone. The only way this won't suck is if he's killed 10 minutes in to fuck with the audience, like what they did with samuel jackson in deep blue sea.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 8:56 p.m. CST

    by comedian_x

    someone from the WWE in the role? I welcome this trend of casting real actors in roles (Downey, Norton, Bale) that normally would have gone to body builders and former stuntmen. <p> Movies can make people as tough as they need to be onscreen. I was here to witness the attacks against Downey as Iron Man -- now everyone loves him.

    by UTexLex

    I was thinking this was AvP 3, but now they got a strong lead. Topher Grace is also in talks which means this will get the proper studio push since it has name-actors versus a craptastic AvP re-hash with a bunch of faceless bodies to get killed. Between this & Ridley returning to Alien, I'm enthusiastic for the first time in 10+ years for these franchises..

    I wouldn't mind him cast in this movie...

    by Chakraborty

    ...but my main problem is him being cast as the lead. He's a good character actor, but I don't find him to be a good leading man. Hr worked well in the Pianist because the lead role in that movie was different, and not the same as the lead role in an action film.

  • Oct. 6, 2009, 9:20 p.m. CST

    Topher Grace? Am I the only one who finds him insufferable?

    by YackBacker

    I can't explain it, but I really cannot stand his face. He's like every person you ever wanted to beat the shit out of, all concentrated into one human being. He could be holding a basket of kittens and I'd open fire indiscriminately.

    by solyom_szem

    For all of you naysayers Predator 2 was actually a great flick. The chase sequence towards the end which lasted for about 30 or 40 minutes was awesome. Danny Glover did what he could do with a script like that. It was an enjoyable film, and I dare even to say it was even better than the first one. What great metaphor between the Predator and the Jamaican Gang.

    by YackBacker

    I agree that all things awful in the prequels stem from the screenplays being (not so) borderline moronic. But Ewan did his part, made shit palatable where a lesser actor would have failed. Portman and Christensen were too busy playing grabass to do more than phone in their work. Ugh, why do we always go back to the prequels?!?! Oh that's right, because I keep mentioning them (I say as I play with my Darth Maul action figure)...

    Well, let's be honest here for a moment re: PREDATORS

    by YackBacker

    Even if this is the Rolls Royce treatment, with A-list, Oscar-winning actors, etc.-- these movies are formula. They consist of a bunch of guys entering a dangerous situation where each character is killed off one-by-one until either one or two dudes are left to triumph over an "unbeatable" foe. This is the same formula for the ALIEN movies, the same formula for the HALLOWEEN movies, etc. It can benefit from good acting and a smart script, but this shit is really paint-by-numbers so don't expect "serious" looks by moviegoers.

    I am no Adrien Brody fan but honestly

    by brocknroll

    I think Robert Rodriguez has the right guy. You can't bash the guy this early when you haven't even seen the film. I think Adrien can deliver the film with good acting. He has never done an action movie before and I think that's the point of Robert getting the guy. Robert was going for someone who is not familiar with the action genre. He wanted an actor with no experience with action movies. I'm no fan of Adrien Brody but you can't deny that he does have the acting skills since he is an Oscar winner. Does Adrien have what it takes to be a tough guy? I think he does. Just give the guy a chance. Adrien is no Arnold or Danny Glover, but I always thought Adrien would make a good action hero. Like him or hate him, Adrien's got a good luck for an action hero kind of guy.

    This movie needs an injection of old blood.

    by LordVonPS3

    Predators hunt alone, they can jump between trees or buildings and are physically bigger and stronger than Arnold Schwarzenegger in his movie prime. The idea of a 'Super black Predator' is completely pointless. The whole point of Predator was that ONE single enemy is physically and technologically superior in every regard. That's all it takes. This movie needs Dolph Lundgren, Sylvester Stallone, Steven Seagal, Mr.T, Kurt Russell, Mel Gibson, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje AND Clint Eastwood leading them. Fill the movie with 1 liners, classic 80's action and untimely deaths. No-one cares if these guys are old, just as long as they are in great shape for the movie. With a cast like that, no-one knows who'll live or who'll die. Experienced ex-war veteran mercenaries pulling off some rescue mission in the jungle would be exactly their style.

    THe worst thing in the original Predator

    by Continentalop

    Was Arnold. <P> The guy is a body builder, not a soldier or a SFO (and an American one with a thick German accent). I don't thin Brody is the best choice, but he actually looks more like a SFO than Ahnold ever did. <P> They should cast an older guy though. The last guy should be an tough, EXPERIENCED Delta Force, DEVGRU or SAD operator. It is experienced predator vs. experienced Predator. No one under 40 need apply.

  • Oct. 7, 2009, 1:41 a.m. CST

    Predator 2 better than Predator? You're an idiot

    by criticalbliss

    The first predator is by FAR the superior film. Granted, I like the second film (and Arnold would crush Glover), but to say the sequel is "better" than the original is moronic by any standard. The first predator is a perfect film. It's mean, vicious, perfectly paced, and beautifully shot (unlike P2, which is spotty and often poorly staged). Predator is every bit as seminal as Die Hard. The tough guy element (Arnie) was just as crucial as the "regular" joe angle with Bruce Willis. The fact that this "indestructible" man is running like a child from this nightmare alone makes the film (sorry, Danny Glover, but you don't cut it). This illustrated and heightened the pure badassery of the predator. It made the film very primal. <p> Predator is the Apocolypse Now of SF films.

    by StarchildAD

    So Im imagining they spin the whole "whos the predator... gasp! humans are"... Brody close ups sweating in the jungle hiding in the trees with his big fucking nose poking out and the predator sees it and attacks him. Im praying that he dies the first death and they go for a Samual Jackson in Deep Rising or whatever the fuck that shark movie was. But seriously... This movie is gonna be fucking disgusting. Sweaty big nose in jungle... Remember that. For 2 hours. And Danny Tearfaces scars. Just get some aids victims to walk behind the screen and this movie will be borderline horror again.

    by cloudrider`

    give this film a chance. like someone said above, bodybuilders as action hero is a cartoonish 80s concept. who needs muscles when you can use your body as a weapon. jason bourne is not a bodybuiler, neo is not a bodybuiler, the new james bond is tough without the steroid. these action heroes are much more believable in this day and age than some guy who pumped iron 24/7. <p> rodriquez has great instict with casting(banderas, marv & dwight in sincity, etc.), and this new director's first film was nominated for an oscar. his FIRST film. i think predators is a very very good hand.

    nimrod's KONTROLL

    by cloudrider`

    a reviewer's take: <p>"Kontroll" is the first work by a director who is clearly gifted and who has found a way to make a full-bore action movie on a limited budget; there are no special effects in the movie, all of the trains are real, and I gather at one point when we see Bulscu barely crawling onto a platform ahead of a moving train, he is really doing exactly that. Antal has a feeling for action, but what distinguishes "Kontroll" is his control of characters and mood. He could have given us a standard group of misfits, but his characters are all peculiar in inward, secretive ways, suggesting needs they would rather not reveal." <p> so he knows his action, and he can write a band of misfits pretty well. how can you geeks not be optimistic?

    Conti - re Ahnuld as an SFO

    True, he's not the classic SFO type, and he'd be fucking useless for anything remotely involving secrecy - he's a man mountain, how do you hide something the size of Ahnuld?? - but, y'know, PREDATOR is a bad-ass popcorn flick. Were it something like SNIPER, realism would be more important, but I'm guessing John McTiernan was going for visceral thrills over realism and attention to detail.<P> I take your point, though. And when some twat decides to remake the original PREDATOR, a realistic approach could be interesting. Who'd be Dutch in a realistic PREDATOR, I wonder?...

    Mystery does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    The unique appeal of the original PREDATOR for me was the sense of 'mystery'.<p> This was helped along by that brilliant score, by the camo effects of the Predator itself, and by the acting and script that put a great emphasis on the fact that the characters didnt know what they were up against.<p> We didn't get a full reveal of the Predator creature till literally the last 15 minutes of the movie.<p> This new PREDATORS movie doesnt have that luxury. Just like ALIENS didnt have that luxury. It will have to be badass in different ways and im presuming Adrian Brody is being cast as the Ripley archetype. Not physically strong - but mentally strong. Pulling the disparate human group together and giving them the leadership to fight back.

Spy Kids was horrible - the sort of tosh Hollywood did for kids before Harry Potter showed you could take them seriously. Sin City claimed to be 'noir' - but it was nothing of the sort, it was just black and white, and very nasty. I don't want to be all whiney, it's just that on this site you all get rightly annoyed about remakes and unnecessary sequels, so I don't know why everyone is so excited about this.

    New Heroes

    by Continentalop

    Ok, I just put down the heroes of the 80s, but I will say two things: <P> 1) Cloud rider - each hero represents something about that generation. The 70s heroes were dark, cynical anti-heroes, just like the era that spawned Watergate and the embarrassment of losing Vietnam; the 80s gave us inflated muscle men to overcompensate for our feeling of emasculation at losing 'Nam, and to act as a moral boost against the Soviets because the Cold War just heated up thanks to Ronnie - America was big and tough like our heroes (or at least we told ourselves that); and in the modern age we turn to men in costumes because we are generation of children who wish to regress and have Batman, Obi-Wan and Optimous Prime fight our battles and not ourselves. And if it isn't them, it is a hero who is getting in touch with his "feelings", such as Jason Bourne or Bale as Batman, or even Jackman as Wolverine. <P> 2) Optimus, as I said above, as much as I don't like the 80s heroes, a lot of the modern heroes are "gay" for lack of a better term. Hell, I would prefer if they were really gay but not so damn emotionally and needy. Like I listed above, it seems every hero nowadays has to spend half the film brooding, crying or pouting about how it is so unfair. Even ant-hero turned arch-villain Vader was just a big whiny kid who wasn't let into the big club. <P> 3) But as bad as modern heroes are, or as ridiculous as American heroes seem, the heroes in the rest of the world are just as bad. I mean, like the Chinese have great fucking action heroes - they have to be tugged around on fucking wires. Yeah, that is real "macho", fighting people with your Fake Fu.

    "BR is more noir and less scifi"

    by Continentalop

    Not to start a pointless argument ominus, but I've got to disagree with you about that. As probably one of the few people here on this site who doesn't like BR, the reason I don't like it is because to me it isn't noir. Or at least not as much as it pretends to be. <P> True Noir to me is about regular people who succumb to the seduction of crime (DOUBLE INDEMNITY) or innocent people who make one bad choice or take a wrong turn and find out how unforgiving the universe can be (DOA or THE VANISHING). BR doesn't do either of those. It is really a detective story (with very little real detective work) surrounded by the visual style and iconography of noir, but none of its meaning. <P>

    by Continentalop

    That depends on the movie and the star. Jackie Chan usually had it "easy" in the sense that no one close to him died. <P> And Tony Jaa's big pain and sacrafice is that someone stole his elephant. His elephant. Think about it.

    Conti, Heroes and Influential Men

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    I find it interesting and entertaining that viewers on a website, ranked Don Draper, a fictional character as the most iconic male personality of 2009. <p> Don is the man, his looks, the ladies, the drinking in the office and rarely fazed. <p> But it is interesting that is a fictional character and on top of that a guy from the 60's. Maybe it's a case of men wanting to be men again, and know that they have a place in the world and they matter. <p> And to your point the current heros being "gay". <p> I love how you reference Optimus because I am sure if you asked a group of 25-35 year old guys, when you were a child who did you think was a good example of a leader, if they answered honestly I am sure he would come up a lot.

    chan specializes in action comedy, with equal emphasis on both the action and the comedy. if the hero is dead at the end of the movie, it wont make for a very good comedy. i can't argue with you on tony jaa though. forget the elephant, what about the idol's head in ongbak.

    I think you paint American heroes a little bit to much with a broad stroke. I mean, I a recent trend in American movies has been that the hero looses his loved one - Batman lost Rachel Dawes, Bourne lost his girl in The Bourne Supremacy, Bond looses Vespar Lynn, and if Raimi didn't fuck up we probably would have seen Peter lose Gwen Stacy. <P> I think both Western audiences and Asian audiences have very comic book/childish heroes at times.

    The best heroes

    by MorganLeafy

    aren’t heroes at all. They’re underdogs. They find themselves in situations which they normally can’t handle but they come out on top by a combination of intelligence, creativity, physical ability and luck. Eg: James Bond, Indiana Jones, TinTin, Han Solo, John McClane, and yes Dutch in Predator. That’s also why most superheroes and pure muscle men movies are boring as hell.

    The heroes of 80s were men larger than life

    by ominus

    they could kill whole armies or hellspawn beasts or aliens from other planets with their bare hands.Arnies Conan was a hero larger than life,i think it was also the character who started painting the identity of the 80s hero,an identity which found its purest form in Sly's Rambo (in Rambo 2 more precisely) <p>I dont have a problem with heroes like Bourne (who is in fact a hero whose traits start from the 70s) or Keannu as Neo in the first Matrix movie. <p>But the problem is that with different heroes,you will eventually have different movies.For instance can u imagine Arnie replaced by Brody in the original movie? will the movie work the same? Can u have Arnie instead of Daemon as Bourne in? will it be the same movie? or the movie will have to change,to better suit the trademarks of the actor's personality and physical presence? <p>For instance remember the last scene in the Predator,after the explosion,where arnie is standing up,covered in blood and ashes,beaten,broken,but still maintaining that imposing,undefeated presence.That scene with these two opposite visualizations of the character,dont give wonderfully the impression to the helicopter crew (and also to the audience) that something really terrible,something not ordinary has happened to Dutch?which also gives a big weight on how a remarkably strong and dangerous villain was the Predator. <p>now take the exact scene and replace it with Brody.will it be the same? will the Predator and what has transpired radiate the same impression of awe? <p>no i dont think so that this will be the case,which means the director will try to make Brody look badder or the Predator look gayer.but whatever will be the case,we wont get the same appeal of danger,awesomeness and brutality from the original Predator movie.

    video game idea

    by the new transported man

    I'd like to see a Predator game that uses the characters from the first movie, the jungle setting, & lots of Predators. Pick your character: Dutch is the best all-around, Mac & Billy have tracking, Poncho has explosives, Blain is the heavy, & Hawkins is the speed character with no defense. DLC extra characters of Bill Paxton, Danny Glover, & Gary Fucking Busey. Dillon is a NPC that provides info, then dies before the last few missions.

    ominus - re: brody vs arnold

    by cloudrider`

    ominus, i dont think it's fair to compare the 2 since you havent seen the new film yet. sure, different actor would dictate a different atmosphere to a film. but it's the same for all kinds of movies, not just action. if this new pred film turn out to be any good, and the brody's character is written well and perfectly suited for the actor, then i'm sure as much as you cant see brody playing dutch in the first film, you cant see arnold playing the lead in this new film as well.

  • Oct. 7, 2009, 7:49 a.m. CST

    besides, we've seen the 1st predator

    by cloudrider`

    we've seen how the pred go against muscle bound he-man. we've seen how that dynamic works out. so why would we want to see the same dynamic again this time around? it's a new movie, with a whole new preds. it SHOULD have a different dynamic, otherwise it's just a repeat.

    practically everybody in Predator was an extreme macho. Dutch survived because he kept a cool head. So of course Brody is less impressive, but that doesn't mean that it cant't work.

    OK, I've seen KONTROLL by Antal and here's what I think

    by YackBacker

    It's a good movie. It's a very non-Western movie in some ways too- relying on tone and symbolism a lot more than straight exposition. The quote cloudrider cited above was not accurate- KONTROLL was not an action movie any more than TRAINSPOTTING was an action movie. To me, action movies are concerned primarily with the action- if you remove the action elements you have a completely different show. With thrillers (which KONTROLL is) you can dial down the action considerably and have the same story. <p> Anyway, as a thriller, KONTROLL is quite good. Antal knows his visuals and distinguished characters very well. This is a memorable movie, I really enjoyed many parts of it. To be honest, I hope he doesn't get sucked into doing only big budget type movies. He made a very exciting and charming, small film in KONTROLL. I want to see more of that from him.

    in the original movie.They want muscles,swearing,toughness,sex jokes and blood.Do u think u will get these kinds of things in this remake,when the lead is someone who doesnot posses these traits? ofc no. <p>u will get a new Predator but it will be different,it will be according to the tastes of our modern era.Now that doesnt means that this remake will be a bad movie,but if its better or worse than the original,lies well to the personal taste,belief,perception of coolness and ofc age of the individual movie viewer.

    Comparing Predator to Predator 2 is....

    by AnakinsDiapers

    ...like comparing apples and oranges, or Alien to Aliens. They're just completely two different animals. Predator really is a classic, genre changing picture, and although Predator 2 had no hope in matching that, it was a great movie in it's own way. The entire "urban jungle" motif -from cinematography to Sylvestri's heavy use of drums (more so than Predator) was perfect. Predator 2 did everything a sequel is supposed to do: give more of the same but add enough new ingredients to make it it's own beast.<p> Oh, and the whole drug cartel shoot out at the beginning was worth the price of admission alone.

    that are the true bad ass motherfuckers in the special forces. Don't get me wrong, I dug Arnie in the original Predator, but I would laugh at the Bulky One 'cause I knew the skinny motherfuckers on his team were much more likely to be the type to do the work he was pretending to do. Ever watch Ninja Warrior? Fuckers attack these insane obstacle courses in Japan - and it's ALWAYS the skinny motherfuckers who make it through not the big bulky dorks. All that said, I'm not a big fan of Rodriguez, so I'm not expecting much.

The ENTIRE urban jungle thing, the remarks about it being one of the hottest years ever recorded, the entire shoot-out and subsequent find of the skinned gangbangers - EVERYTHING in PREDATOR 2 was ripped off of the first Dark Horse Comics PREDATOR story. FUCKING EVERYTHING.<P> Don't believe me?? Go to eBay. Buy the fucking thing, when you find one. Read it the fuck up.

Better than choosing The Rock or something obvious like that. You want a bit of variety for sequels - in Pred 1 we had the muscleman, in Pred 2 the aging cop, now we have the athletic geek.

I can maybe see him as some kind of guerilla jungle fighter with long dirty curled hair and scruffy beard. Some guy who has fought in the jungle all his life. Or maybe with shaved hair portraying some kind of western special forces guy with cool toys and brains instead of brawn. Lets face it, even arnold couldnt take on the predator in hand to hand combat so muscle isnt going to win tha fight.

    Dark Horse Pred 2

    by TurdontheRun

    Yes, it was great - but way too fucking expensive. The ending had dozens of Pred ships landing in New York and blowing the shit out of things.<p>I reckon Dolph Lundgren would have been a good choice as Dutch's bro back in the day (circa 89/90), at least based on the comic's illustrations. Dennis Franz as the partner.

    All depends on the script

    by nexxus7

    I can't speak to Adrien Brody as a performer one way or the other, only to say that he was okay, but nothing special in the overblown beast that was King Kong. Folks aren't going to be coming to see an Oscar-caliber performance they are coming to see some Predators whup ass, and get their asses whupped. Now if it's taking place on Planet Predator, I guess there's only three ways it can end. 1. No one goes home because they died 2. they give the Preds such an entertaining fight that they keep 'em on planet for a rematch, or 3. the hero gives 'em such a memorable match that they are honor bound to send him/her back home. Oh well, nothing can suck more than the AvP movies.

  • Oct. 7, 2009, 5:03 p.m. CST

    We'll see

    by Screwbini

    I think Brody is a decent actor, but I'm not really excited about him in this movie. But I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, especially if he plays the serial killer. And by the way, while I agree that the first Predator was better, Predator 2 was pretty good, and Danny Glover was definitely physically imposing enough for the role.

  • Oct. 7, 2009, 5:26 p.m. CST

    Rip-off of Dark Horse

    by Hipshot

    I wouldn't call Predator 2 a "rip off". After all, Dark Horse licensed the entire property from Fox. The chance that Fox has the right to appropriate ideas from the comics is pretty strong. In fact, I think the smartest thing they could do is look more carefully at those comics and graphic novels--just as Superman or Batman or anything else should look at what has already been done with those characters. Why in the world not?

    The casting of Brody and Grace....

    by Jamie McBain

    Has insured that it will be the most ripped apart and bashed film, in all of internet history. Not to mention, all of the jokes that will follow. That only way it could get more bashed, is if Rob Schneider also gets cast in the film, as well.

    by Arcangel2020

    Adrian Brody? Meh, I am keeping an open mind about the whole casting and production of this "Rebooting" of the Predators Franchise...I am so apathetic about the way the whole Predator/Aliens Vs Predators series has gone so far! I feel that both Aliens and Predators (I loved Alien, Aliens and the first Predator) have been raped beyond all ruination...so this new Movie can't be any worst then previous installments. Who knows? Maybe Rodriguez will indeed give the title a much needed kick start/kick in the ass that will make Predator fans happy. Hey! Look at it this way!! At least Uwe Boll or Paul W Anderson aren't directing!! Ha!!

    by DioxholsterReturns

    from start to finish it was indeed incredible. first off it has one of the best intros i ever seen on TV. secondly the characters are a great aspect of the show, they act very naturally and awkwardly which makes it all real, then the dynamics and tension has this potential to make this series mainstream. if you were put off by how cheesy it was, then get over it, great sci fi was always cheesy. BSG wasnt really sci fi and if you say otherwise then you are blind.

    HERC was dead wrong!, hes just a BSG fanboy who doesnt know any better, and we all know that BSG was super boring, in fact one of the Stargate writer's mentioned that BSG "cured his insomnia" he was right, that shit was complete agony. and we all know how disastrous the last episode was, oh look, God did it!---- they were having some Stargate envy since Stargate does feature God-like heroes and villains. and its laughable how the last scene was New York and times square with toy robots on giant screen--that was funny as well as retarded. just shows you that the main villains in BSG were crap from the getgo. and lets not forget that the BSG universe is a really small one, while Stargate's is huge making room for way more adventures and surprises--basically no limits.

Glad a I have balls out DVD edition of the original Predator, because whenever I hear of a remake of a movie I was around for the original, my first instinct is to watch the original.

The entire plot was ripped off of the Dark Horse Comics story from two years before (and which is VASTLY FUCKING SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY) and ends up a fucking mess which, though it may be studded with moments of sublime genius, is actually a steaming fucking load dropped on the heads of every true Predator fan on this planet.
