The ‘Predator’ Franchise Lives On In The First Teaser For ‘Prey’

The Predator franchise is alive and…well? Lordy, I hope so. Although, following on Shane Black’s The Predator, the latest film is actually titled Prey, and brings the universe’s deadliest hunter into confrontation with a Native American warrior. Sounds awesome. And now with the release of this new trailer, it kinda looks awesome, too.

I’m totally into this. The red triangle scope of the Predator is one of those things that will always look cool, and I imagine that poor guy’s head gets blown into cake mix a moment later.

The film is directed by Dan Trachtenberg of 10 Cloverfield Lane fame, and features a Native American cast led by Amber Midthunder known for her roles in Legion, The Ice Road, and Roswell, New Mexico. She’s joined by Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush, Dane DiLiegro, and Julian Black Antelope.

Prey debuts on August 5th as a Hulu exclusive.
