20th Century Fox has revealed plot details and even a trailer of Shane Black’s upcoming The Predator film during the studio's panel at CinemaCon 2018, reports IndieWire.
The upcoming film is reported to take place in between 1990’s Predator 2 and 2010’s Predators, as a young boy (Jacob Tremblay) accidentally triggers the predator's return to Earth. In this timeframe, the alien creatures have upgraded themselves with the DNA from other species, essentially making them stronger, smarter, and deadlier than previous predators.
In the new film, only a handful of soldiers and scientists, played by Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, and Trevante Rhodes, are tasked with saving the human race.
The Predator is slated to hit theaters nationwide on Friday, September 14, while the official trailer is expected to debut soon.
