There's a new trailer out for Shane Black's upcoming new entry into the Predator franchise, aptly title The Predator, and it is magnificent.
After getting reactions ranging from 'meh' to 'lukewarm' for the first trailer they released, Fox has gone into overdrive trying to make sure that audiences know that this film is going to be something special. They released a new trailer (technically a TV spot) just a few weeks ago that was essentially just the first trailer recut and with a few new bits spliced in, including that killer final shot of the new big guy. But even that TV spot didn't get too much traction because it had the misfortune of releasing during the week in which about twenty (!) different new trailers for films were all released.
So now, with the air clear and the chance to actually make an impact, Fox is hitting fans with a whole new wave of The Predator marketing. There's a wonderfully insane new poster, some great new Shane Black tweets, and this beautiful new red band trailer.
So let's dive into all the big questions: callbacks to the original film, details about this film's plot, and whether or not this new trailer reveals a bit too much.
