Shane Black’s The Predator has been Rated R for strong bloody violence, language throughout, and crude sexual references

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.

The new film stars, Olivia Munn Thomas Jane Sterling K. Brown and Keegan Michael-Key.

The synopsis for the film is as follows:

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.

See it in IMAX, Large Format, and Dolby Cinema on September 14th. I know I’ll be there opening weekend.
