Unless the plan is to just re-tell/re-cast the characters & narrative of the original. Which if that's the case I'm not very interested.
agreed. you know its not going to be as good as the original.

Some movies can't be bettered, Alien and Predator are among these, but that is no reason not to try. I'm just happy the Predator license is being kept alive despite the AVP:Rs best efforts to bury it. Even that mess gave us the Wolf!

I agree, it likely won't, but I'm looking forward to it non the less. I'm not sure Predator did all that well when it first released though did it? I was one in 1987. I think it is one of those movies that became a cult classic later on, in large part due to Stan Winstons incredible creature design.

All of Arnold's best films are sci-fi.

I looked it up. It was the 12th highest domestic film of 1987 ($60 mil). For reference, the #1 movie that year was Three Men and a Baby at $168 mil.

Kinda so-so box office for an Arnold movie, but it did out-gross Robocop that year. I would say both films have had much more success after-the-fact then they did on their initial theatrical releases.

i knew it wasn't number one. but i knew it wasn't a cult classic either. like you said. so so, fairly successful.

Idiots, once again creative bankruptcy prevails.

Oh well, one less movie to see and more money in my pocket for statues.

I actually was surprised with AVP:R, I actually liked it! It was much better than the first AVP. Wolf was awesome in it, I just wish the humans were better.

I wish they would make a Predator sequel with Arnold in it again.

Here's my story:

It's a new group of marines who encounter a rival group that were "skinned alive." They have not seen something like this in 30 years so decide to bring in an expert - Dutch! All hell breaks loose again and all the marines die except Dutch who battles the Predator one on one again. Loads of new Predator weapons of course and great kills.

There you go, why can't Hollywood think of this?
I bet that will be better than the new movie!
