And while the first ever "Predator" film (1987) will remain in pop culture's memories, subsequent incarnations did not exactly make it to "da chopper" and the freedom of a positive pop culture legacy, I reckon ... from the 1990 sequel "Predator 2", to unfortunate trio of cash-gabs "Aliens vs Predators", even 2010's "Predators" proved a futile reboot ... would THIS latest incarnation give the prestige back to the intergalactic race of sport-killers?
Will we be faced with a new deluge of "Predator"-toys?

"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."

Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, Yvonne Strahovski - THE PREDATOR is scheduled to premiere in U.S. theatres on September 14th, 2018.
