Welcome back to my Predator blog part 2. The first one was posted this morning if you’d like to give it a look. In my first post, I shared with you guys that a new Predator movie was coming out and told you about some of the Predator films, so I could give you an idea of the timeline. In this post, I’ll share the last two Predator films and then discuss the plot to the new film.
The next Predator film is Alien vs Predator Requiem or A.V.P.R. This one came out in the year 2007 and picked up right after the events of A.v.P. The Predator known as Scar had been attacked by a face huger in the previous film and died from a stabbed wound through his diaphragm delivered by the tail of the Alien Queen. Unfortunately, this did not kill the new hybrid alien (Predalien) growing in his body. His body was placed on the scout’s ship and as they tried to fly back to their home planet they were attacked by the Predalien; which is more Alien than Predator.
The ship crashes and lands in Gunnison County, Colorado where the Predalien begins to hunt humans and to breed more serpents. Now some citizens of the town must band together to survive the onslaught. What makes it worse is that the high ranked hunter/assassin known as Wolf is singled by his brethren and begins to hunt the hybrid. I’ve seen both A.v.P. and A.V.P.R. and to be honest I didn’t think the second one was as good as the first. I didn’t like how they switched the rule of the Predators sparing worthy hunters of the aliens. I know the whole original idea behind the franchise has been Predators hunting and killing humans for sport, but I liked the whole concept of humans earning the hunter’s mark and the Predator’s respect like in A.v.P.
Predators is the name of the film that came out in 2010. This time the Predators abduct several humans that have killing/hunting/tracking skills and take them to their home planet where they hunt them one by one. Also, in this film, they no longer follow the rule of not killing a human that doesn’t have a weapon. We even discover that the Predators have hunting hounds. The new movie coming out in September is, The Predator, and will be picking up from the first film. A new group of men gets stranded in the jungle only to have each member go missing one by one. Soon when the last survivor discovers what has been hunting them they realize how much danger they’re really in.
Will this new film bring back the rule of not killing humans when they don’t carry a weapon or not? Who knows maybe that rule only exists on Earth and not the Predator’s planet. This is sure to be a good action sci-fi film and a great continuation of the Predator franchise. I personally hope they do another Alien vs Predator film soon afterward since the last one ended on a cliffhanger. I also want the character Lex to return as well and possibly help the Predators hunt Aliens and help the humans by telling the Predators to stop hunting her kind. But that’s just me and an idea. That’s all for this blog post ‘til next time.
