#SDCC17: Hunt for the Predator with this New App; Also Look Out for Piggy Man, Caesar, and More!


Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has a LOT of things going on this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and of special interest to Dread Central readers is the launch of The Predator Official Fan Mobile App. The app, available now on iOS and Android mobile, will act as a portal for fans to converse, interact with exclusive content, test their Predator knowledge, and more, creating the ultimate go-to source for the most engaged and interactive fan experience.

At SDCC, fans who encounter the official Predator cosplayer, and survive like Dutch, will have an opportunity to collect a limited-edition mini poster while supplies last. Did we mention he’s also a WiFi Hotspot?

Learn more about the app – plus a few other tricks Fox has up its sleeve – below…

The Predator Official Fan Mobile App includes:

  • SKULLS. Participate in forums, complete challenges, and submit your own fan content to earn skulls, unlocking special features, videos, stickers, and more.
  • RANK UP. Use skulls to rank up from a Young Blood to a Yautja leader for more exclusive content. Unlock various Predator emojis.
  • THE RUNDOWN. Head Hunters Tory and Dave bring you up-to-date clan content with weekly coverage of Predator news, interviews, fan interactions, humorous sketches, and more.
  • FORUMS. Visit the forum to connect with other recruits to discuss all things Predator.

Paired with the accompanying thepredator.fox website, the official app will provide fans around the world a place to organically interact, consume more content and build a direct relationship with others. With the film’s blend of action, sci-fi, and horror, the passionate fanbase is one of the largest fandom communities. Helmed by community managers who will drive content and interactions within the platform, the Predator Official Fan App will empower fans through content that runs the gamut from tongue-in-cheek think pieces, to fan-fiction, to behind-the-scenes revelations, to detailed analysis of past films.
