    This has to be a joke, because it sounds stupid. How do a bunch of landed gentry p***ies do anything but die in this lame idea for a film? The "prey" in the first film had advanced weapons and only one survived. The ideas for Predator films just get dumber and dumber.

    What's next? PREDATOR VS CATS: The Musical? [​IMG]

    Adam mentioned the Predator predator, but the story doesn't. I find it hard to believe they'll be able to get the rights to the original one. With talk of a Predator remake, they won't want to dilute the franchise further.

    Yes, I'm sure it'll just be a suspiciously similar looking alien. And Edwin, I don't think it's meant to be taken seriously[​IMG] Picture something with a similar sensibility to Bubba Ho-tep

    [​IMG] I guess I jumped the gun again. I saw 'Predator' in there and jumped to a conclusion. My bad.

    Sounds like a Monty Python sketch. [​IMG]

    Man, I hope it's not meant to be taken seriously. I'll go see it as a comedy and campfest only. If this is meant to be serious then it's a horribly lame idea.

    I don't think you guys are giving enough credit to late 18th century weaponry. A multi-barreled flintlock rifle, accurate to 300 meters, would be a threat to an alien or predator. The biggest impediment would be reload time (15 seconds minimum), which could be mitigated by multiple barrels or by multiple weapons. Wealthy Englishmen from that time period would have been good riflemen from their hunting and military service, and also potentially skilled at fencing. And don't forget that in the first Predator movie, Dutch defeats the predator mainly using cleverness and low-tech traps. Finally, we know that the predators have fought humans in the era of flintlock firearms, judging from the flintlock gun that the predators give Danny Glover as a trophy at the end of Predator 2.

    this sounds like one of those straight-to-video semi-parodies where even the cover art is an obvious rip-off of something else. it just happens to have gotten a good press story.

    Oh, why not. Let's have the predator skewer someone on stage at the Oscars and run the audience and their 8000.00 suits right out of the building [​IMG]

    If this gets made, honestly I will have to see it.

    I had a blast with Grindhouse.
