(trailer review) - Prey

For those who may not have seen the trailer yet, this film is a Predator prequel. Perhaps a reboot of the franchise too. For those who love the franchise will be happy to see this trailer, but for those like me, who liked Predator, Predator 2 (to an extent), Predators (it was ok) then Alien Vs Predator and Alien Vs Predator: Requiem (from poor to even worse), you might feel that another crack at the Predator franchise is simply, just bad business at this point, especially after the last Predator movie directed by Shane Black crashed and burned. But although I am sceptical, this trailer reminded me of The Revenant meets Predator and the Bear is NOT getting the Oscar.

We start off with a young lady trying to prove herself to her tribe that she can hunt, maybe a rite of passage. Upon trying to hunt for a bear, she is attacked and runs for cover, however from what seems like the case in the trailer, she is saved by a Predator. But now she becomes the hunted and she must try to survive this unknown creator, experienced in hunting and killing, she cannot see.

A slightly slow build to the action but I love this. Native Indians in movies too, I love this. I would have preferred original language but I am guessing that may have alienated some viewers. The director of 10 Cloverfield Lane here, and just like that movie, it seems he is doing a great job.
