Prey Trailer Stalks the Internet

If a franchise exists, Hollywood can kill it. To reinforce this, 20th Century Studios has released a trailer for Prey, the upcoming Predator prequel. Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, Prey goes back in time to follow a Comanche woman and aspiring hunter who has to protect her tribe from “a highly evolved alien with a technologically advanced arsenal,” which is their way of pretending they’re keeping the Predator aspect of the story a secret. Prey stars Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, Dane DiLiegro, and Michelle Thrush. The film will arrive on Hulu on August 5, 2022. Check out the Prey trailer below:

The Predator is one of the coolest movie monsters of all time, both in design and concept, and his first movie is a classic. The second one is pretty good too. But after a string of middling-to-awful sequels, spinoffs, team-ups, and whatever you want to call them, I think I’m ready for him to call it a day. There’s only so far you can stretch a concept, and it leaves you to wonder how many times a Predator came to Earth and was defeated (unless you think there’s a chance in hell this girl is going to lose) before it tangled with Arnold Schwarzenegger. It also kind of sucks for Dan Trachtenberg; 10 Cloverfield Lane was a very good movie from a first-time director, and for his follow-up, he’s making an unasked-for entry in a series that’s worn out its welcome. I guess if they simply must make more Predator movies – and they must, because it’s an IP that exists – going to different time periods is one of the better ways to go about it, but even that has some issues. For example, the Predator is all about honor and the dignity of the hunt; would it really pick a place where its prey have arrows and spears and use big laser-guided ray guns against them? Arnold eventually uses primitive weapons in the first one, but that’s because his modern weapons have been exhausted, and he’s got nothing else after a long battle that saw all of his men get killed. And that’s not even getting into the “patriarchy is keeping me down” heroine that’s here to kill fun and Predators, and she’s all out of Predators. August seems like the right month for this one.

What did you think of the Prey trailer? Do you want more Predator movies? How long will it be until people accuse Prey of being racist for calling the Comanche tribe misogynistic? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to Geeks + Gamers for more trailer rundowns!

The photo you are showing for Dakota Beavers is not him. This is Dakota Beavers, the costar of Prey: The photo you are showing is for a lesser character in the story and is Harlan Blaine Kytwayhat

Thank you!
