Redditor Destroys Predator ‘Prey’ As New Look Is Revealed

Check out a new look at the Predator in the upcoming Prey movie coming to the Disney Hulu streaming service where a Redditor absolutely destroys the flick which follows an Indian girl who stalks her prey but her prey is revealed to be a Predator (note: per the official description, the title actually refers to the Indian Girl as the predator and the Predator her prey).

The image comes via Reddit where a Redditor gets the comment of the year:

Arnold with machine guns, explosives, and a highly trained team of commandos, all armed to the teeth, barely killed a Predator.

But one young girl with some sticks, “no problem.”

Yeah. I’m pre-ordering tickets right now. No way this can be bad or anything.

Another Redditor chimed in and didn’t like the comment mentioning, “So this is some sort of ‘get woke, go broke’ dogwhistle right? Maybe try the ign comment section or something,” which saw the Redditor reply: 

No, it’s a comment that casting this actress in this role is like casting Charlie Day as Conan the Barbarian.

She looks like the heaviest thing she ever had to lift was her extra-large soy mocha latte. Why they want me to take this character seriously as a potential opponent for the PREDATOR when her equivalent in the first movie was a foot taller and 200 pounds heavier and STILL got thrown around like a rag doll, I have no idea.

If they had cast, say, Ronda Rousey (a Bronze Medal winner at the Olympics in Judo) as someone fighting a Predator, I’d have a much better chance at believing it. Gina Carano or Michelle Rodriquez are also decent choices.

Prey gets released on August 5 directed by Dan Trachtenberg starring Amber Midthunder as Naru. 

Predator in Prey:

Predator in prey

Prey follows Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior

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).
