First look–The Predator lives on in summer movie, Prey

The seventh movie in the Predator franchise is coming this summer.  Unfortunately it’s not coming to theaters or Netflix.  Hulu will be hosting this one, and to get us interested the streaming provider and 20th Century Studios have revealed the barest of sneak peeks.  This won’t continue ahead with the super-Predator unveiled in Shane Black’s 2018 vision, The Predator.  Instead in his movie Prey, Dan Trachtenberg, a director with only one film in his credits (10 Cloverfield Lane) will do what all franchises do at this point: give us a prequel.  Even with less than a minute to see, it provides the overall impression of Predators, the third entry in the franchise from 2010.

Get a brief look at the next Predator movie, Prey:

A twist on the space Western, Prey stars Amber Midthunder (Longmire, Hell or High Water, The Ice Road, Legion) as a Comanche who becomes a warrior for her tribe, among the first humans to encounter the bounty hunter aliens. Ex-NBA basketball player Dane DiLiegro is in the film, and at 6’9 he might be playing the Predator himself.  This will also be the first film for actress Dakota Beavers.

Time to get caught up on the best of the bunch, Predator (1987), and lesser sequels, Predator 2 (1990), Predators (2010), and The Predator (2018), plus the crossover movies Aliens vs Predator (2010) and Aliens vs Predator: Requiem (2007).

You have plenty of time to find a friend who has Hulu to watch it with.  Look for Prey only on Hulu–and Disney+ outside the U.S.–coming August 5, 2022.
