I must admit: when I heard about a new Predator film I was pretty unsure of what to expect. Robert Rodriguez has been pretty hit or miss in my opinion, and hearing he was attached as a producer made me more unsure than ever. And when Adrien Brody was cast in a lead role, it was enough to make my head spin.
Today, attendees of the South By Southwest Film Festival were treated to some first look footage of Predators and FirstShowing has embedded the copy from the film's official website for all to see. Check out the clip below, complete with introduction from Robert Rodriguez, and let us know what you think in the comments section. The full trailer hits on March 18th, and the film will be released on July 7th.
Personally, I think this looks pretty excellent. I had completely forgotten that Laurence Fishburne had joined the cast, and now I'm actually looking forward to this. The film is directed by Nimrod Antal (Armored, Vacancy). What do you think about this first look at Predators?
