Shane Black’s The Predator (to be released in September)was recently given an R-rating for strong bloody violence, language throughout, and crude sexual references.
Obviously, a rating doesn’t make or break a film’s level of entertainment. It does, however, provide potential viewers with a general idea of what to expect.
Unlike the most recent incarnations featuring the butt-kicking alien, including Predator 2, Predators, and the films in the Alien versus Predatorcrossovers, this film is intended for an adult audience.
More importantly, it gives fans of the Predator a sense of anticipation, knowing they may see some brutal kills, once again making the alien killer a formidable foe and not one trying to befriend humans like in AVP.
That’s how some want their aliens. Mean. Nasty. And ready to take over the world.
