Predators Preview

So July 9th brings us the newest Predator movie.  This installment is produced by Robert Rodriguez and directed by Nimród Antal.  The cast includes:  Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Danny Trejo, Laurence Fishburne, Walton Goggins, Oleg Taktarov, and Alice Braga.  

Some critics are saying its worse than Alien Vs. Predator.  The previews look promising but one thing you can count on with Robert Rodriguez involved is plenty of gore.  

According to the LA Times article, Predators is a reboot of the franchise but also a sequel of sorts to the original 1987 film that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Predators, amazed that a human (Arnold) was able to take down one of their own, immediately hatch a plan to wrangle up some of the most dangerous humans around the world. They then dump this band of mercenaries, thieves and other nefarious types that include Adrian Brody, Topher Grace, Lawrence Fishburne and Alice Braga into a "preserve" where they can be hunted. To add a wrinkle, one of the humans may be a serial killer amongst a group not known for embracing the concept of working as a team.
