SPOILERS: New Details on THE PREDATOR Reshoots



I think it’s safe to say at this point that we all know Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s upcoming The Predator has been undergoing reshoots as of late. But today we have a rundown on just how much was reshoot via our buddies over at AVP Galaxy.

Beware: here there be spoilers.

Evidently, the latest edits of the film completely cut the so-called “friendly” Predators, along with the entire APC sequence and “the various hybrid creatures” with only the Predator Dog remaining.

On top of all that, the more prominent characters’ death sequences have been completely changed, and the final battle with the Upgrade Predator takes place at night in the woods. More specifically: “After attacking the Project: Stargazer base, Upgrade gives the survivors a chance to escape before he begins to hunt them to find the best fighter amongst them.”

The latest cut also featured “additional scenes that connected The Predator to the previous films, including Alien vs. Predator” with Lex’s spear now displayed alongside City Hunter’s spear from Predator 2, and Olivia Munn’s character is shown pictures of the Predators from the first two films.

What do you make of these reshoots? Are you still excited for the final film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The Predator is directed by Shane Black from a script written by Black and Fred Dekker and stars Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Edward James Olmos. The film hits theaters nationwide September 14, 2018.

And for fans headed to San Diego Comic-Con next month, the cast and filmmakers will be presenting exclusive, new film footage in Hall H on Thursday, July 19th. Stay tuned for more info.


From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
