From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. The universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race. (synopsis via HeyUGuys)
Leave ’em alone and they’ll draw all over the walls with crayon, eat you out of house and home and, oh yeah … summon murderous, high-evolved killing machines from space known as Predators.
This time around, the aliens are even more deadly, – yay evolution and a Borg-like tendency to take the best from other races and make them your own – and humanity face the very real prospect of being wiped from the face of the earth.
So alien apocalypse BAU then?
Possibly, but this trailer looks like a whole world of cleverly-updated pain with The Predator, technically the fourth in the series, acting as a direct sequel to the 1987 original Predator.
The Predator premieres 13 September Australia and 14 September USA / UK.
