The Predator

Check out The Predator‘s new Teaser and Images Ahead of Today’s Trailer Debut

We’re finally getting our first peek at Shane Black‘s The Predator, thanks to a brand new teaser and a few images released by a few of the film’s cast. This comes a little more than two weeks after The Predator‘s synopsis was finally revealed, all of which is ahead of the first trailer which will be debuting today.

The Predator was scripted by Fred Dekker and Black, and boasts a stellar cast that includes Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski. Here’s the official synopsis from Fox:

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

You noticed that, despite the singular title, The Predator sounds like it’ll boast multiple aliens. Some of the cast began posting images yesterday, ahead of today’s big trailer reveal, riffing on the Predator’s ability to hunt by heat signature:

The teaser is provocatively short, showing us the strange digital glyphs that the alien super-predator dialed into the computer on his wrist in John McTiernan’s 1987 original (right before he detonated himself and destroyed half the jungle), but we can live with it considering we’ve only got a few hours until we get a proper look at the film.

We’ll be sharing the trailer when it drops. The Predator opens September 14th.
