Disney has released a new featurette for the Predator Prey movie that takes a page out of the first Arnold Schwarzenegger movie and teases, “There’s something out there waiting for us… And it ain’t no man.”
Well, it’s not a Predator, either, as it’s a teen Indian girl who hunts down the Predator per the official description for the movie where the teen Indian girl is the predator and the Predator her prey (hence the title also refers to the Predator being the “Prey”): “The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.”
A Twitter user who saw the flick claims Prey isn’t all that bad, so let’s hope that is the case.
#PreyMovie #prey initial thoughts, good movie, everything is earned, she isn’t a Mary Sue, goes through some serious shit to get where she goes. The predator is brutal. Utterly brutal. Some of the best kills we’ve ever seen. Great music, good cinematography, good movie all in all

Prey gets released on August 5 directed by Dan Trachtenberg starring Amber Midthunder as Naru. The film is set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago following the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
The filmmakers were committed to creating a film that provides an accurate portrayal of the Comanche and brings a level of authenticity that rings true to its Indigenous peoples. Myers, an acclaimed filmmaker, Sundance Fellow and member of the Comanche nation herself, is known for her attention and dedication to films surrounding the Comanche and Blackfeet nations and her passion for honoring the legacies of the Native communities. As a result, the film features a cast comprised almost entirely of Native and First Nation’s talent, including Amber Midthunder (The Ice Road, Roswell, New Mexico), newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp (Sooyii), Michelle Thrush (The Journey Home), Julian Black Antelope (Tribal).
