I loved Predator. One of my favorite movies ever. I enjoyed Predator 2. Everything since has disappointed me.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

Yeah, that looks kind of weak. I'm hoping it is just a bad trailer.

Pretty much where I stand.  The Jungle & The Concrete Jungle were awesome settings with great casts.  After that it just has been mediocre at best.

Yeah, that looks bad. I didn't hate the 2010 "Predators" flick.

One thing that caught my eye was that the trailer repeated scenes (I counted at least two) which makes me wonder just how far along in shooting they were when they tried to cobble that together.

I'm willing to give Shane Black the benefit of the doubt. His filmography affords him that. If it sucks? Well, then at least people will stop belly-aching over Predators, which is better than it gets credit for.
Maybe the real deep state was the friends we made along the way.

Alfie Allen needs a new agent.

Predators is a really good addition to the franchise.

The scenes in this trailer with the kid and the involvement of Olivia Munn make me think this will be Iron Man 3 levels of bad.

My biggest problem with Predators was that it felt rushed. Maybe that's not the right word. But honestly it felt like it was just kind of there and things just happened then it was over. Maybe I'll give it another shot.

You're not wrong, it's basically just a rehash of the original, but it's pretty well made. I never understood the hate for Adrien Brody in it, either. If Nicholas Cage with a mullet can be a BAMF then I don't see why Adrien Brody with an AA-12 can't.

This is a much better trailer mostly because half of it isn't the kid from Room playing with the Predator's weapons.

This one coming this weekend.

Extra layers to Hollywood scum going into this as Olivia Munn got shit from the studio for complaining that a convicted sex offender had been cast.  Sterling K. Brown came out in support of his co-star Munn in recent days but sounds like Munn went through hell over this a while aog.  That person's character was cut from the final film due to Munn's whistle-blowing but it is that mix of supporting a studio doing shitty stuff when the shitty stuff is more blatantly out in the open like this.

That guy was a close, personal friend of Shane Black's which is especially upsetting.
