Everything seems to indicate that the producers of the new “Predator” have found a different angle to approach the franchise, starting with the lead role of actress Amber Midthunder. In a recent conversation with Collider, John Davis and John Fox hinted at the overall tone of the film, making a comparison to “The Revenant.”

“Predator” has grown into a major franchise since it first appeared on the big screen in 1987, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Since then, the hunting creature has been a part of video games, comics, and novels that expand the mythology behind its breed.
After his two confrontations with Alien in 2004 and 2007, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez was tasked with bringing him back to the big screen in 2010 with a film that, despite its acceptable box office, never managed to take off its sequel. “The Predator,” a Shane Black film released in 2018, would not be able to connect with audiences, causing heavy monetary losses at the studio.
