If you were hoping The Predator would be equal parts vicious gore and jokes about vicious gore, the final trailer for the film is going to make you very happy. This red band trailer doesn’t skimp on the gore or laughs as it sets up the premise of the film.
When a Predator invasion threatens the Earth, a team of misfit former soldiers are called upon to somehow stop it–though, honestly, most of them will likely end up getting killed in the process. At least the audience will have fun along the way, if they like seeing Predators tear people in half or shoot spears through them like Scorpion in Mortal Kombat.
“They’re large, they’re fast, and f***ing you up is their idea of tourism,” a government agent played by Sterling K. Brown tells the team. What else is there to say?
The Predator is the latest in the movie franchise that spans all the way back to the original 1987 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. With an impressive cast that includes Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Olivia Munn, and Boyd Holbrook, just to name a few, and writer/director Shane Black, it might also be the film that reinvigorates the franchise.
Thankfully, you won’t have to wait long to find out. The Predator hits theaters on September 14. In the meantime, check out our look at how the Predator has evolved over 30 years and the history of the franchise.
