“The origin story of the Predator in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago. Naru, a skilled female warrior, fights to protect her tribe against one of the first highly-evolved Predators to land on Earth.”

Director: Dan Trachtenberg
Writers: Patrick Alson
Staring: Amber Midthunder, Dane DiLiegro, Stegany Mathias, Stormee Kipp, Dakota Beavers
Release Date: August 5, 2022

Why did nobody tell me that there was another Predator movie in the works??!! This shocked me this morning!

On August 5, 2022, Prey (2022), the newest installation in the Predator franchise is being released on Hulu. This new story is a prequel to all the stories that we know. The hunting alien comes to earth nearly three centuries ago in the midst of the Comanche nation. The natives have no idea what is coming for them, but Naru (Amber Midthunder) takes up her weapons to defend her community for a much higher evolved threat.

Strictly as a Predator franchise fan, I am very excited for what Prey can be. A super small cast (only five on IMDB as of 5/16/22), and a claustrophobic fighting environment gives me all the proper happy tingly sensations. This promises to be better than the truly horrendous, devastating and worst birthday present ever The Predator (2018).

This trailer is wonderful for its simplicity. We have Naru running from the woods into the arms of a friend…but that friend then gets the deadly three dots appearing on her forehead. Do not think that she is going to survive this one. The last thing we see is Naru rising with an hatchet fighting back. It is going to be an animalistic fight for survival.

Do we think there is going to be dialogue in this movie? Is it all going to be in subtitles if it is, like Apocalylpto (2006)? I would be open to both!

Prey is directed by Dan Trachtenberg, whose only other major motion picture is 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016), which was another remarkably suspenseful claustrophobic story against a hidden enemy that they don’t understand. We can connect the dots! Trachtenberg also has directed an episode of The Boys, which is a show that I do love.

People may recognize Amber Midthunder from a pair of recent Liam Neeson action movies: The Ice Road (2021) and The Marksman (2021).

Before we close out here, let’s just look at how the Predator movies stack up against one another.

This is the shit I love. Chapter 18 of The Mandalorian is fantastic television and excellent Star Wars.

From the start of the episode we…
