Exploring: Predators Trailer

The trailer gives the Predators movie a feel much more like the original Predator movie.  I also like that they have the Predators collecting their prey for a big game hunt since the humans proved themselves formidable and it is a typical behavior for them to do so.

I am amused by the name of this Predator movie because it's parallel nature to the Aliens movies.  How much of it is an homage to the Aliens movie?

Both franchises had their first movie named in the singular and featured only one.  Aliens went on to feature many Aliens in it's second movie and was thus named in the plural.  Predators also will feature multiple of the hunter warriors and is named in the plural.

Predators' release date 7th July 2010

Story:

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 Disturbing Baby Snuggie

This is so disturbing to look at.  The first image that comes to mind is from the movie Aliens when the alien baby bursts from the chest of their victims. Imagine:  Aliens five Revenge of the Queen.  In it we find out that the Alien Queen used Ripley to get back at the humans for her demise but this time the alien spawn are a hybrid species which have human faces and murderous alien bodies...

Mounted Velociraptor Head

Velociraptor head

Big game hunters eat your hearts out...

I could mount this Velociraptor head from Jurassic Park on my wall... imagine the conversation starter it would be.

"Oh! I see you noticed my catch while I was on safari.  Just wait till you hear the story of how we spent 3 days in the jungle hunting each other until I got the upper hand."  Yea I think it would go something like that.  Of course in order to pull it off properly I would need to get a Predator head and an Aliens head to go next to them.
