Going for the lighthearted tone by the looks of it. I reckon it might be Ok, you’d expect Shane Black to know what a good Predator film looks like having started in the original. But the whole involvement of kids in the suburbs in it.... nah

It has an impossibly high bar to live up to so might as well try something different.
There are no beefcakes like Arnie, Carl Weathers or Jesse Ventura rattling around Hollywood today, unless you count the Rock but he’s just way too big of a brand to take seriously at this point

Watched Black Panther, was just the usual superhero cut and paste... nothing special at all.

The synopsis of that Predator film along with some scripts I've heard about sound absolutely horrendous, I haven't got my hopes up at all. 

Genetically modified Predators and different Predator factions? Nah.

The different Predator factions was a good idea i thought, they should expand on the Predators and focus less on the human nature of it. I think the script has been re-written and changed a number of times to make it as vanilla as possible for the casual cinema audience. An autistic child is the reason the predators come to Earth

Just rewatched Arrival. Properly excellent sci-fi. 8.5/10

Love stuff like this and ex-machina. Far beyond standard whizzy ships and laser gun bullshit. Anyone got recommendations for similar? Have seen interstellar and moon already.

sounds awful.
from that terrible looking trailer it looks reminiscent of Alien Vs Predator 2 Requiem which was a super turbo  type of shite film.

Shit trailer but maybe they don’t want to give anything anyway. Still looks like too many characters

They better not ruin Predator

Predator 2 is awesome
Sniffed up Colombians, Gary Busey, Bill Paxton, fighting in a freezing works etc etc

Still far and away the best Predator film that isn’t the original

Also gave us the line "Fuckin voodoo magic man" so it deserves some props just for that

I always loved Predator 2 but rewatched it the other week and it’s not aging well. Still rate it though.

The original really holds up, think the jungle setting helps.

New Mission Impossible looks decent if you’re into that sort of thing.

lol Predator 2 has some funny lines and stupid bits in it but if it was released tomorrow it would be universally panned. Nostalgia is a persuasive mistress

Predator 2 is OK but nowhere near as good as the original which, in my mind, is a masterpiece.
 
I quite enjoyed Predators and still hope that Shane Black can pull something out the hat this time. I'm not going to watch any trailers or anything but it doesn't look like they've been well received.

Not to mention "other world life life life life" 

Predator 2 is great, yeah sure it's got problems etc but it worked. The simplicity of a creature stalking and killing is still there with a new backdrop and some good characters. 

When it starts to get more complicated with different Predator gangs and all that shit, I'm not quite as interested.

I rate Predator 2, but maybe it only pales in comparison with the OG.

Blade Runner was 8th in the UK box office this week and it was only showing in one place, Secret Cinema. Pretty impressive.
