We first previewed the teaser for it here at borg last month.  The seventh movie in the Predator franchise is coming this summer.  It’s the prequel story Prey, coming to Hulu.  20th Century Studios opted not to continue in the direction of the super-Predator unveiled in Shane Black’s 2018 vision, The Predator.  Instead director Dan Trachtenberg is taking what appears to be an expensive alternative, as in Predators, the third entry in the franchise from 2010, Prey is clearly not heavy on elaborate set pieces and special effects.  And yet it looks like it’s going to be a blast, with plenty of throwbacks to the original movie–the sci-fi classic with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Check out the first full-length trailer for 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).

Look for Prey only on Hulu–and Disney+ outside the U.S.–coming August 5, 2022.
