The Predator franchise has been one of highs and lows. However, we’d wager that most fans would argue mostly lows.
John McTiernan’s original 1987 film is an undisputed classic and introduced an unforgettable and destined to be iconic alien species. As tends to be the case, the film’s success led to a sequel but fans weren’t quite so impressed with the follow-up.
Since then we’ve seen the likes of Predators and Shane Black’s The Predator while also seeing the masked creature taken on another sci-fi icon in two Alien vs Predator movies. More recently, Dan Trachtenberg has brought the franchise back to its roots and offered something fans have been demanding for decades. A prequel.
