The Shane Black directed R-rated reboot, titled The Predator, has posted its first cast photo:
I hope Shane does a good job with this film. Since he was part of the cast in the first one, I'm sure he'll try his best.
Those lines from Shane Black cracks me up every time I see them.
So Shane Black, he's the actor who portrayed the soldier with the glasses, is now a director?
Yes, he's been directing for a while now. Matter of fact, he wrote Lethal Weapon screenplay before he was in Predator. Also, wrote Lethal Weapon 2 and several other films. He first directing job was over ten years ago, a really good film, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang starring Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer.
Edward James Olmos has officially joined the cast:
Fox has pushed the release date back to August 3, 2018:
Set photo with a first look at the Predator:
Not sure why it had to be pointed out that this re-boot is R-rated. I'm pretty sure the first one was too.
It is a fan thing. When they make sequels or a reboot of a film that had been rated R then if they don't make a big deal about the sequel or reboot being rated R there will be backlash from fans. This is why Ridley when discussing his Alien prequels always makes sure to point out that they will be a "hard R" although I think most of what is in Prometheus could pass for PG-13 with the exception of the "abortion" scene which is likely the only thing that is in it that could get them to an R. They probably could have made some trims to the abortion scene but because it is showing an "abortion" even though it is a giant alien squid...this is likely enough to have made that scene too much to get the theater owner preferred PG-13.
I am guessing the abortion scene is specifically in the film so they could get an R.
So, is this a comedy version of Predator?
I did like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Nice Guys a lot but not sure that I want to see this film. Although Black may make this a pretty humorous affair.
It's not an abortion - it's a c-section of a viable creature. She specifically says she needs a c-section. The film was Rated R for gore - that the alien needed to be removed in and of itself was not cause for the rating, it was how it was shown onscreen. A PG-13 version of that scene was shot but discarded.
I don't go to IMDB enough, I didn't know Shane Black was an actor, let alone the guy in Predator. I really like a lot of his material. I'm in for this easily.
You are so obsessed with attacking Prometheus you can't keep your rants confined to a Prometheus thread. I'm going to go look for a thread on Mary Poppins, maybe I'll get some relief there...No wait, you'll probably just attack Guardians of the Galaxy in that one.
Is there a Mary Poppins thread? I have nothing against Guardians of the Galaxy but I will go comment about Prometheus in it!
(I hope I was correct in thinking you were joking that what I said about why they would promote an R rating was a rant. I mean I made no negative comments in what I said so not sure how that could be taken as a rant.)
Really? So, you are saying she was not attempting to abort that pregnancy and kill the "squid" baby? Your take on it was she was attempting to birth through c-section and raise her squid? You did not find it comical that there was a scene where David, always the naughty boy, takes away her little crucifix before she goes to have her abortion?
Can we stop the "Alien" discussion in this thread. There is no need to pollute this thread with the same heated discussions that already took place in two other threads.
