Not exactly jumping to see The Predator when it hits theaters September 14th, but admittedly the one pleasing factor I feel for the movie is that they stuck to a lot of practical effects, particularly the titular monster. They could have easily gone the TMNT route and made a big CGI blob, but instead it’s still an actor in a costume, physically on the set, looking like the same threatening creature that’s haunted dreams since the first film in 1987. This is made more prevalent by the new photos released today for the film, courtesy of Empire. Check them out below:
The Predator stars 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. It is directed by Shane Black.
