WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A young boy named Rory (Tremblay) accidentally summons the Predators, the universe’s most skilled and lethal hunters, back to Earth. Having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other alien species, they are more powerful than ever, and it’s going to take a team of former soldiers led by Rory’s father Quinn (Holbrook), and a disgruntled science teacher named Casey (Munn), to stop the hunters before everyone becomes their prey…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Director Shane Black – who had a small role in the original Predator alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger – revitalises the franchise with this fresh new take on the fearsome alien hunters that offers plenty of action as well as Black’s trademark sense of humour.
