A new batch of image stills has been released for the upcoming Shane Black movie, which shows off the new and improved Ultimate Predator!
“If the predator was to be an amalgam of, not just an ordinary predator, but also a collection of traits garnered from the various most powerful species that they’ve hunted, then you basically would have one that is stronger, faster, and smarter,” Black said in a previous interview. “We finally got an image that we liked, which captures this very canny, very cunning, and effortlessly powerful, savage predator.”
Black continued: “One of the only quibbles that I’ve had with some of the past predators is that, if you’re not careful, it can look like a guy in a football suit; big, bulky guy just stomping around. I wanted a certain more graceful, more light, more athletic quality, literally like a predator. If you watch a cheetah, it’s not clunky.”
Shane Black also filled in USA Today: “Enough of these things have happened and with sufficient frequency that we’ve actually started paying attention. There’s even a fledgling scientific group whose purpose is to watch the skies in anticipation of the next incursion.”

The movie hits September 14, 2018 directed by Shane Black starring Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey and Yvonne Strahovski.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, 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 young 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.
