I was underwhelmed after I saw the first few trailers for the latest installment in the Predator universe — however, this latest trailer shows the tone of the movie to be more humorous, with good fun action, than the previous trailers did.
Here’s why I’m the most excited about this movie: it’s written and directed by Shane Black. If that name sounds vaguely familiar, that’s because he’s as big a name in the action genre business as there is. Check out his writing credits: Lethal Weapon I, II, and III; The Last Boy Scout; The Long Kiss Goodnight, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang; Iron Man 3; Nice Guys, etc. He’s also the writer/director for the upcoming Doc Savage, starring Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson.
If you’ve seen any of those movies you know that this guy writes action as well as anyone, but his dialog is what sets his movies apart.
And oh yeah, he was part of the cast of the original Predator movie as Hawkins — he died early.
So strap in, this movie is going to be a fun ride.
