More on Predators after the jump…

Predators is about “very intense group of people stranded on a Predator planet discovering unspeakable horrors – that are not always from outside their group.” The description sounds pretty vague, but enough to reassure audiences that it has the potential to be wildly entertaining. However, with a movie like Predator it would still do well even if it is total crap.

The choice of director has been of some concern to many die-hard franchise fans. I am not incredibly familiar with the Antal, so I cannot pass judgment on the quality of his work. However, I hope that he will do the franchise justice and make one hell of a movie. I really want to see how this one turns out.

The tentative release date for Predators is July 7, 2010.
