Less Known Facts about the Predator Movies
Did you know that there’s a new project or movie coming out? I didn’t until like two minutes ago when I accidentally stumbled upon a trailer.
How come the good people of Fox haven’t been marketing the hell out of this? Here in journal I haven’t seen a single buzz shelter ad and for a big summer blockbuster movie there hasn’t been very much chatter about it although on yonder or internet.
Is Fox trying to keep it on a download maybe trying to avoid any potential moaning and groaning based on the last two crappy Predator related movies? Or is this some seriously post modern meta marketing in which maybe they’re hoping that the film like the Predator itself will silently and invisibly stalked its prey until opening weekend when it goes for the kill and let’s the word of mouth kind of gush from the wounds. That was a bad metaphor.
The point is that it looks like it might actually be a good movie but haven’t heard of thing about it. Did you know that the predator, a super top high skilled sport hunter from outer space of the 1987 film by the same name was created by Stan Winston who also created the Terminator, brought the Aliens to life and the Alien not to mention the Velociraptor in Jurassic Park.
What super cool Hollywood sci-fi film that this kind not been not been a part of. Apparently the mandibles on the Predators’ face with James Cameron’s idea but where they came out with the dreadlocks I have no clue. Also in the original film and in every subsequent sequel the Predator bleeds glow stick juice for blood which is a super cool special effects idea that you could probably do at home.
Did you know that they originally cast Jean-Claude Van Damme to play the Predator but he found it too hard to move around in the suit and it was a little too hot for him and he passed out a few times. This was just before his career took off with Blood Sport back when he was just Karate guy.
So he was kind of perfect casting for the Predator which is basically a space Ninja but since J. C. didn’t work out they had to get somebody else to do it and who did they get but the guy from Harry and the Hendersons who played Harry and the Hendersons.
Did you know that Predator might be the 80’s macho action film to end all 80’s macho action films? With Predator super producer Joel Silver basically went out of his way to cast three hokey bodybuilders for his Testosterone Festival and they all play tough army guys with phallic symbols that shoot bullets that will rip you in half.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Jesse “The Body “Ventura were all obsessed with being huge they even had secret workouts before filming started everyday which resulted in some pre ridiculous footage even for the 80’s.
Did you know that the Predator concepts thrived in the comic book medium throughout the ‘90s? Thanks to the genius idea of crossing over the Predator with the Alien from Aliens inspired perhaps by glimpse of an alien skull in the Predators coffee room on the shit in that one very brief scene in Predator 2 which is underrated by the way.
Comic writers and artists came out with all kinds of crazy news story possibilities surrounding this mysterious alien race. This comic helps bring in a whole boat load of fans who maybe were too young to appreciate the hard art kill fest in the first movie. Did you know that based on those on those same comics, Hollywood put out a pretty terrible Alien versus Predator movie in 2004 that was disappointing both critically and financially?
With the hardcore fans foaming at the mouth and demanding the blood of director Paul W.S. Anderson, Hollywood knew that they had to make up for it so that led to the release of Alien versus Predator Requiem in 2007 which was about 20 times worst in every possible way.
Did you know that the new Predator’s movie is produced by Robert Rodriguez, fan favorite director of the underrated, “The Faculty” film which was a horror-sci-fi blend and that’s kind of perfect considering Predator is basically a horror sci-fi concept to begin with? So having him on board can’t wait.
Did you also know that they’ve gone back to basics and set this film in a jungle, just like in the first movie? Only this time the humans are brought to an alien jungle planet by the Predators specifically to hunt them for sport just like in that Ice Tea movie.
Did you know that Predator star Academy Award winner Adrien Brody? How about that ‘70s shows Topher Grace? Maybe you heard of Warren Fishburn? How cool would it be for this movie to be awesome?
