Predators character teaser
Let's not call this one minute and seven second teaser a featurette, it doesn't even last long enough to become a trailer. However it does feature Robert Rodriguez and Adrien Brody, as well as showing us a little more footage and talking more about the film.
There's a few things worth picking up on in the teaser too, and it's beginning to look more and more like the original Predator film, which I think is a good thing.
Some of the scenes in Predators are striking me more and more like the original Predator. The opening scene of this teaser has Adrien Brody looking just like the mud covered Arnold Schwarzenegger, and that slow look round is just screaming Predator to me.
It has to be said though, the gun he's carrying looks ridiculous, is that made of balsa wood?
Then we see him pull out that ridiculously huge knife, another thing that reminds me of the original, except here it's not quite right. I remember both director and star giving a speech about how the original film was over the top with the big huge muscled men, but we're seeing that huge, over the top knife that doesn't quite look right with the smaller Brody.
Then, after the trailer shots, we see Brody standing there topless with flaming torches all around him, another scene right out of the original, queue big firey explosion and his leap, ditto.
However don't get me wrong, I'm liking it because it is so referential to the original, that's what a Predator sequel needs to move forward and bring back the Predators as they were.
Finally there's the scene of Brody getting all the Predator marks over his body, and that's another cool moment. I'm really liking it.
