Remember that feeling? That clammy, butt-clenching feeling you get when you watch alien creatures slicing and dicing humans like sweet potato? Predators' new trailer has got that in bucket loads. Yes, the latest glimpse at Nimrod Antal's take on the franchise started all those years ago by John McTiernan is absolutely without a doubt massively promising.
Guns? Check. Humans? Check. Mud? Check. Predators (plural)? Hell yes. With Robert Rodriguez keeping an eye on things, Antal's gone the whole hog with his energetic entry in the Predator universe, grouping together its kick-ass cast (Laurence Fishburne, Alice Braga, Danny Trejo, the list continues) without any sign of annoying Alien vs Predator-style dialogue to set it all up.
Even better, Adrien Brody manages to convince as Royce, a mercenary who not only leads the group, but looks and sounds like a man. A butch manly man. If they can pull that off, then frankly, this really can't fail. Especially with the amount of blood on show in these mere 146 seconds. Enough jabbering - read on to experience the fear (and intense joy) for yourself. Oh, there's a cool new poster as well.
Predators is released on Thursday 8th July. The other videos (including that enticing sneak peek) are over here.
