Since Shane Black’s recent reboot/sequel to 1987’s Predator, The Predator, arrived on Blu-ray/DVD and VOD last month, we’ve seen a torrent of unused concept art from illustrators hired during the film’s pre-production process; most are of hybrids. We’ve seen a freaky monkey/Predator hybrid, an intimidating lizard-porcupine/Predator monstrosity, and even an equal mix of Predator and human DNA.
Recently, artist Jared Krichevsky shared what could be the most terrifying beastie we didn’t see: A spider/Predator hybrid. Let me tell you, it puts that sucker form Kong: Skull Island to shame! Give the gallery a look-see in Krichevsky’s Instagram post below.
Predator Spider design done for The Predator creature menagerie. Didn’t make it into the movie but was a lot of fun to design!
If you missed The Predator while it was in theaters, the film is now available on Blu-ray/DVD and VOD (as previously mentioned). Give the trailer and synopsis and gander below. Black directed The Predator from a screenplay penned by Fred Dekker; the film’s sizable ensemble cast includes Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, and Olivia Munn.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. 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 boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biologist can prevent the end of the human race.
