Things We Saw Today: The Predator Trailer Gives Us a Look at the Ultimate Predator
Let's name him Rick.
I’m overall looking forward to Shane Black’s upcoming The Predator movie. Not only does it have an amazing cast (Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey and Yvonne Strahovski), but I love The Predator aliens and I wanna see more of them, please and thank you.
That being said, “if your mom’s vagina were a video game it would be rated E for everyone” is such an eye-roller of a line that I’m not exactly sure why—except for appealing to really dated ideas of bro-humor—it was included in the trailer. What does make me perk up is this Ulta-Predator in all of his evolutionary glory. Yes, more of this! Overall, I don’t want my monster movies to be all about a team of dudes and a token female character “bonding” for half the film and then just little Godzilla 2013-style teases of the fight. I want action scenes. I already do not care about these
victims characters. I want mega-super-ultra Predator.

- Yeah, the people behind the Final Fantasy 7 remake admit that the news on that was launched wayyyy to early. Fans were disappointed by SquareEnix’s “presentation” and with the promise of seeing Tifa again, I totally understand why. Huh? I’m hearing that people really just wanted to see Cloud. Booo.

- The original kicks from Back to The Future II are falling apart. Time is a cruel mistress. (via Kotaku)
- So that asteroid that struck Earth was hugeeeee—think the moon on Titan falling in Infinity War, but faster. What’s more is that because of the intensity of the impact caused by the collision, there was debris from Earth flung into space and the moon. Which means … Dinosaur. Bones. On. The. Moon. Don’t tell the people behind Jurassic Park. (via Kottke)
- With true crime becoming so popular, it’s no wonder writers are exploring what is our society’s fascination with dead (white) women and if there can be anything empowering about that. (via The Paris Review)
Is your mind blown because there are dinosaur bones on the moon?
