Eat, Prey, Love? ‘Predator’ reboot gets ‘R’ rated trailer…

We get a better look at the Shane Black reboot due in September...

The recent trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator was fine in and of itself, but didn’t seem to represent the ‘R’ rated aspect we’d been promised by the film-maker and the production.

The first footage we were seeing dealt with the idea of a young boy accidentally triggering a homing beacon from a Preadtor ship, which felt decidedly PG-13 in presentation. Now a second trailer, ahead of the September release of the reboot, gives a better impression of the more adult tone we can expect.  The story is a little clearer as well as a crack team of commandos go up against not just a predator that’s crash-landed on Earth, but also a version of the alien hunter that has been bred to outstrip even the conventional warrior class.  The latest glimpse comes with the requisite violence, profanity and all-out action some were hoping for with the likes of… with most of the main cast, including Boyd Holbrook, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Jacob Tremblay and Thomas Jane looking to get their moments in the spotlight.

The Predator is due to escape on 14th September in the US and the UK.
