Having upgraded their tech, the alien creatures known as ‘Predators’ come well-prepared to engage in their annual hunts on earth.
Their return to earth is accidently initiated by a boy who triggers their space ship to crash-land on the outskirts of a small town. A bloodbath is initiated by the aliens whose rite of passage is through hunting and killing human beings.
With the hunt beginning, a military standby force is set up to deal with the aliens whose premediated attacks on humans are well coordinated and more deadly.
Having been launched in 1987 with Arnold Schwarzenegger and a sequel helmed by Danny Glover in 1990, The Predator films and sequels have generated a cult following.
Directed by Shane Black who gave us Iron Man 3, and The Nice Guys, the film enlists Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Sterling K. Brown (Marshall), Keegan-Michael Key (Keanu, Key & Peele), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse, Office Christmas Party) and Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones).
The Predator opens this Friday at Century Cinemax, Acacia mall.
