“She hunts to live, but she lives to hunt.” It’s a slogan that suggests one of the most intriguing concepts for a Predator movie since the 1987 original. Now 35 years later, and we’re about to see the fifth Predator film of the series, ingeniously titled Prey (2022).

According to 20th Century Studios and Hulu, here is the official synopsis for the fifth Predator film, Prey:

Set in the Comanche nation 300 years ago in 1719, the film follows Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior, who was raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters that roam the Great Plains. So when danger threatens her side, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she tracks down and ultimately confronts turns out to be a highly evolved alien with a technologically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

Predator isn’t the most disastrous franchise many will have you believe, but it’s fair to say that every fan has wanted for years is a fueled suspense Predator film whose secret weapon is simplicity, something of its 70s sci-fi counterpart Extraterrestrial (1979) also includes.

Predator has had three sequels to date, or five if you include the Alien vs Predator spin off. The first sequel came in the form of Predator 2 (1990), which replaces the claustrophobic hell of the South American rainforest with the urban jungle of downtown Los Angeles.

The film stars Danny Glover as tough detective Mike Harrigan, who is caught in a four-way war between his own department, violent street gangs, a mystery agency, and an alien warrior. Predator 2 is not the series’ answer to aliens (1986), but his new staging is an admirable move.

Alien vs Predator (2004) follows a team of archaeologists as they discover an underground pyramid in Antarctica. But inside, they discover that the ancient structure is a ritual hunting ground, housing a Xenomorph “production line” – the Predator’s prey.

Fans weren’t happy with the movie’s PG-13 violence, but Alien vs Predator is not a terrible film. As for Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007), not only is it downright awful, but you can’t see much because it’s inexplicably dark. Probably a good thing considering the excessive use of violence.

Then, we have predators (2010), which finds a group of shady individuals stranded on an alien world – a Predator hunting ground. The film stars Adrien Brody as main protagonist Royce, and while it’s a wash-and-rinse repeat of the original, there’s a lot to love about this mythology-expanding entry.

When news of a fourth Predator movie was confirmed, with Shane Black at the helm (who also plays Hawkins in the original film), fans went wild. Unfortunately The predator (2018) is the worst entry in the Predator series, opting for comedy and popcorn horror over suspense.

Now, as you can see from the trailer, it looks like Prey is ready to take things back to basics where Predator movies are affected. In fact, there are also plans to take things quite a ways back, as it unfolds long before the original 1987 film – 300 years ago in 1719, to be precise.

Looks like Prey could be the first of many new Predator movies, as director Dan Trachtenberg recently hinted there would be plenty more to come. In an interview with Time Out, the Prey director discussed the future of the franchise, saying:

“There are a lot of exciting ideas about what could be next for the franchise. The things that excite me the most are the boldest swings and I think there’s room to do more. things that haven’t been done before. Speaking specifically about Preythe director added:There is not much dialogue in the film. Much of it is told through the action. Voice acting has come a long way. It won’t look like an old Shaw Brothers kung fu movie. I feel like it adds a whole new layer of authenticity.

Trachtenberg also recently clarified that the film will not revolve around the first arrival of the Predator species on our planet, but rather that the Predator in this film has never been on Earth before, which also makes it new to the chase as the film’s main hero, Naru.

Prey has already been compared by producers to Leonardo DiCaprio’s award-winning film The ghost (2015), in which a man must face the ruthless elements of the American wilderness in 1823 in order to fight his enemy, and this is evident from the Prey trailer alone.

With no modern weapons at her disposal, it looks like Naru (Amber Midthunder) will really be up against this in the next Predator sequel to the film (or prequel, if you will). But we’re not too worried, because if it bleeds, she can kill him…
