A new featurette has been released for Robert Rodriguez’s Predators reboot. It’s a video bio that centers on Adrien Brody’s character, Royce. The teaser trailer for the film debuted last week to plenty of positive praise from fans, and now the full on marketing assault has begun. First up, we have some background on Predators‘ resident anti-hero…

Royce is the central character in the film and a military trained mercenary. He reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who have been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien creatures.

The following featurette is narrated by Rodriguez and shows us some behind the scenes footage of Brody in action. It’s amazing to see the Oscar winner take on such an action oriented role, especially since he’s conveniently covered in sweat and baby oil in every shot. Seriously, who would have thought that Adrien Brody would play this “type” of character one day?
