Trailer for Shane Black's new The Predator

So new Predator movie, directed by Shane Black. I'm not entirely sure what the fuck they are going for here.

Jakey Busey, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key. With that cast list you don't even have to watch the repetitive and shitty trailer to know this will be an uneven turd.

Only a crew of former soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher, played by Olivia Munn, can prevent the end of the human race.

Set between Predator 2 and Predators.

I was pretty sure that the only way I'd enjoy this would be if it turned out to be a campy b-movie the moment I heard that the movie starred Olivia Munn.

I'm a bit weirded out by Olivia Munn's casting. She's never ever impressed me with her acting talents.

However, Shane Black is a damn good writer and not a half bad director. The Nice Guys was one of my favorite movies of the last few years, for example. Because of that I do have some hope for this movie. Not enough to pay theater prices mind you but there are maybe 2 movies a year that I'm willing to go to the theaters for.

Shane Black was also in on the original Predator, but in a minor role, so he probably actually has some reverence for the property.  However, the original was the only Predator film I enjoyed and Shane Black, although a great director who has made some real fun movies, is not someone I look to for this type of tale.

How is it possible not to like Predator 2?

Shane Black was brought in to fix the script for the original Predator.

That looks horrible. Shane Black needs to go back to writing shitty* action movie scripts.

Sort of.... He was apparently brought in awkwardly to fix it, but declined to do anything but act.

Does (the original) Predator really scream Shane Black to you?

You put a kid front and center in your trailer and I'm going to assume he is going to be an integral part of your movie and skip it.

First thing that came to my mind when they showed the kid was "Is this a boy and his alien?"

It's not. Anyone who doesn't like Predator 2 is broken.

Yes, it's ridiculous when a capitalist corporation that creates media caters to a growing market segment.

The fuck is wrong with you?
