    For the release of the original Predator film, I remember Jessie "The Body" Ventura promoting the film heavily on the WWF's Super Stars of Wrestling. Ventura would go on and on how he was the star of the movie, and so it was shocking and laughable to actually see the movie and find out he dies early on in the film.

    Granted keeping spoilers is getting tough, but that last bit at the end... I would have thought they'd at least try and save it for the theater, not show it in a second trailer already.

    That doesn't seem like a full trailer, between the length and low quality- extended TV spot, perhaps?

    Still, looks more promising than the teaser trailer. Not sure what to think about the Mega-Predator yet (seems like it's just trying to top the "Wolf Predators" from P3 or the Predalien from AVP2).

    Improvement. But still not sold on the Mega-Predator. I do like the touch of pointing out that Predators have done more than just hunt in order to have gotten where they are.

    I'll go to see it but its a big ask to top the original or even to get close to it for that matter. I'm not sure about this super predator angle either.

    That trailer did sell me on the film, unlike the teaser. It definitely help to minimize the kid's involvement in the footage.

    I wish the Ultimate Predator was left out of the trailer, but it did pique my interest. I just hope there's not a team up between the capture predator and the military strike team against the Ultimate Predator in that "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" type of deal. I think that water downs the characteristics of the Predator and the relationship between humans and Predators.

    October is a good release date for this film, as it won't compete with the summer blockbusters nor the fall blockbusters.

    That has been the best trailer so far. I wonder if they gave a big spoiler to try and entice people more as it appears to me the feedback has not been stellar. I will go see this.

    The phantom predator, in all seriousness this looks like the “event movie” that Shane Black wanted it to be.

    Yeah, that’s the stranger part too- I don’t get “event film” vibes at all. Even compared to P3 or AVP.

    That's been the point of the Predator race since the first "Aliens Vs Predator" comic. The Predators don't hold ill will towards humans. They just see them as sport and yet, also an honorable species like themselves. If they didn't care, they wouldn't even bother to give them trophies when they win over one of their own and wouldn't bother cleaning up their own messes.

    haven't seen the trailer yet will probably pop up in front of something eventually. While the Bigger Badder Predator was done in Predators so it doesn't seem like a unique twist to me, the selling point for this film is still Shane Black, dangit.

    I'll take your word for it. I've never read the comics and I really didn't pay much attention to the details of the subsequent films after Predator 2 as the quality of the franchise kept falling.

    At any rate, I still don't think it would be good story telling for the humans and captured predator to team up and take on ultimate predator. It would be like a deer teaming up with a hunter out to kill it to fight an ax wielding maniac in a hockey mask.

    I was watching the trailer in the living room while my wife was in the kitchen and she lost it when she heard The E for Everyone joke.
