Well good morning everyone. Welcome back to my blog where this time I’ll be talking about the new Predator movie that’s coming out in theaters approximately in September. After having two new Alien movies came out it’s no surprise that the Predator franchise is coming out with a new movie; especially since the Alien and the Predator universes tend to overlap each other. That’s been evident in the movies Alien vs Predator, Alien vs Predator Requiem, and Predator 2. In all, there have been three stand-alone Predator films and two A.v.P films. This new one will not be picking up from the timeline of the last Predator film that came out in 2010. Instead, this film will be a sequel to the original 1987 movie.
Here’s a brief description of each movie to help you get an idea of what’s been going on in the Predator timeline. The first film was, Predator and starred, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played Major Dutch Schaeffer. Schaeffer and his team of commandos have been assigned to rescue any survivors of a helicopter crash in the South American Jungle. As soon as they land they discover that they’ve been set up and are now being hunted by sapient and sentient humanoid creature with advanced tech and weapons. The second film, Predator 2, came out in 1990. During a 1997 L.A. gang war, a more advanced hunter begins to stalk and kill the citizens of the city. The only person who can fight the hunter is the veteran police officer, Lt. Mike Harrigan who also boards the Predator’s ship and discovers the Alien skull on the wall.

The next film is the first A.v.P movie that came out in 2004. This film gives a little more background to the Predator creature and how the Alien franchise has crossed over into the Predator franchise. A team of archaeologists travels to Antarctic when Weyland’s satellite picks up a picture of a hole that seems to have burned itself through the ice and leads to an ancient underground temple. Once the team arrives they go down the hole to explore the city only to wind up in an ancient battle ritual. This is when we discover that the Predators and the Aliens have been long-time enemies despite that the Alien timeline is set more in the future than the Predator.
We also discover that the Predators used to be worshiped as gods and helped build the temple the archaeologists are in. Even though the Predators hunted humans in the past two films their main prey are the serpents. Also because of their relationship with the ancient tribe of humans, the Predators seem to have a set of rules for dealing with them. For one thing, they’ll let you live if you’re sick in any way like Weyland was; that was until he attacked the Predator that spared him.
Predators also don’t attack humans that don’t have a weapon, they won’t attack you if you give them their canon they need to kill the serpents and say, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Meaning the Predator is the enemy to the Alien and the Alien is the enemy to the humans making the Predator their essential ally. If you really want a Predator to spare you, then kill an Alien to show you’re a worthy hunter yourself. Just don’t attack the Predator. Also, don’t show fear when the Predator reveals its true form or show a lot of pain when it gives you the mark of a warrior. Well, that’s all for this blog post. I’ll have to continue talking about the timeline and the new film in part two. Hope you guys have a nice morning and enjoy your day. ‘til next time.
